Kissing scenes generally contain some of the funniest moments. Joel and I knocked teeth. After one take we both looked at each other like, “Did I bite you?” There are some pretty non-romantic moments especially in the ones where they’re supposed to be passionate. That just leaves room for a lot of accidents.
— Lauren Stamile on kissing Joel McHale, "X-Finity"
