    • Max: It can't be awkward-I think an awkward kiss just blows it. Like if someone kisses too fast or too intense, it's kinda weird! I don't even think you necessarily have to French kiss to make it good.

    • Max: It was really interesting to me because you do this, and then you don't really know what to expect, you know. And I thought the final cut was awesome, you know, seeing all these pieces put together, it was a lot of fun.

    • Max: I met with a singing coach two times before I came to Toronto , so that helped. And then we prerecorded the actual singing, so in the film I'm sort of singing along with myself, which I found makes it much easier.

    • Max: (about his co-star) It was awesome. He's a really cool guy, we were always telling jokes and playing videogames and stuff on the side when we weren't working.

    • Max: (about the duck from The Pacifier) It was just kind of always just hanging out on the set and it wasn't potty trained, which was kind of a hassle every once in a while.
