The second season finale of “Happy Endings” airs tonight with the gang attending the wedding of their friend Derrick (Stephen Guarino reprising his role), who is marrying his partner Eric (Nate Smith). But, as is normal with this group of friends, nothing goes smoothly, which is where the laughs come in.
Jane (Eliza Coupe) puts her thinking cap on to help Eric disguise the fact that the reception had to be downsized, while Penny (Casey Wilson), who is sad that once again she has no plus one for a wedding, meets a cute guy (guest star Brian Austin Green) when she is seated at the Skype table.
But before the comedy leaves the air to make room for the debut of “Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23,” which will take over the timeslot next Wednesday, we talked to the cast –to find out their favorite scenes from Seasons 1 and 2.
Eliza Coupe (Jane): Brad and Jane’s fake fight in “The Butterfly Effect Effect” that Damon and I did was one of the most fun scenes to do because there was fake snow, and for some reason when you see fake snow, you think you are cold. But it was very warm out that day. [I also loved it] because we got to go back and forth and we were screaming at the top of our lungs. We did so many things that were inappropriate for television – that was half the fun of it and will never be seen – but it got us going and we got to scream and yell at each other. (Watch below.)
Casey Wilson (Penny): I like the scene where we are trying to give Jane a surprise birthday party and she maces us. That was so fun to do. (Watch below.)
Elisha Cuthbert (Alex): In season one’s “The Shrink, The Dare, Her Date and Her Brother,” when Damon and I were in the movie theater, we had a lot of takes that didn’t make it that, I think, may end up on the DVD. There was one line that I came up with — an improv that was too dirty for TV. I was eating a big breakfast and Damon’s character Brad said, “Where does it all go? You must have a tapeworm,” because the character eats so much. And I improv-ed, “You mean my body pet?” It got a little gross, so that never made it. But, I loved it. I thought it was hilarious.
Zach Knighton (Dave): My favorite scene was Damon coming in and dancing into the dentist’s office. All of us were watching them shoot that and it was like magic. It was so much fun. That is my favorite from the episodes this year. (Watch below.)
Damon Wayans Jr. (Brad): Maybe that one [agreeing with Zach]. It wasn’t so much the dance as it was everything was put together. That was fun to be a part of. Also, I think the final scene in the finale is a really good scene. A very sexy performance [and] deep, deep belly buttons.
