    Jeff Daniels: “Certainly the toilet scene was a challenge. As I told the director, ‘This is either the beginning of my career or the end of it.’ I think the actual act of what happens on the toilet, I think they had cut it down to 30 seconds but there were takes that were two, two and a half minutes long of just pure agony. … There were times, I think there’s one close-up where I’m pushing so hard that I almost passed out. I almost fell off the toilet. And I’m pretty sure they used that shot. The career was at a crossroads when that scene was finished.”
