Did You Know?


In a July 2015 Entertainment Weekly interview, David Wain said that the ordeal that Victor underwent while trying to get back from leading a canoe trip to "make out" with Abby, was based on an experience he had while he was a camp counselor: "I had just turned sixteen. I was assigned to drive a group of campers to an overnight camping trip and leave the next morning with another counselor and head back to camp. But, I had just met this girl at the camp and I was so excited to see her that I decided, 'No, I'm going to leave late at night and race back to camp', even though I barely knew how to drive. So I cranked up the tunes, pedal to the metal, and I was driving through pitch black, winding unpaved roads as fast as I could, in hopes of making out with this girl, and about two miles away from the campsite, but still in the middle of this state park, I smashed hard into a tree. I lodged the fender deep into the tire, rendering the van utterly undriveable, and was stuck in the middle of the woods. I had no idea how to get back, I couldn't see my hand in front of me, but luckily I did end up wandering back to find the campsite with the kids and the counselor and they were like, 'What the hell is wrong with you?' After that, they initiated a policy that junior counselors weren't allowed to drive vehicles at camp. I eventually did get to make out with the girl."


Coop: I love sluts! Sluts rock! It's just, you know, it's just gotta be the right slut, you know?


When Victor and Neil arrive at the campsite, Neil opens the front door of the van and you can see the camera assistant's reflection.
