    LOVE the video! Ah that first kiss…on the dance floor and I didn’t know he was going to “go for it” til it was over. It went by like a flash.

    Um. When I was 13, we went to Israel. One day while I was wandering bored through the hotel some guy (who I think later said he was 16, mostly I just remember greasy hair) followed me off the elevator and started talking to me. At some point he asked ‘how much do you cost?’ which did not even occur to me as sketchy, I just thought his English was bad. Somehow (wow I’m dumb) we ended up back in my hotel room long enough for him to stuff his tongue down my throat – all I could think of was my Wildlife Fact File cards, specifically the walrus one where they were sorta roastbeef red (see: http://seapics.com/assets/pictures/009520-450-walrus.jpg ) cuz that’s pretty much what his tongue felt like? Anyways, kicked him out of the room, didn’t tell my parents, and only spent a few weeks paranoid that he was a spy and had given me a disease to make all of America sick.
    Woo! Kissing!

    I have a little additional info on the “Belvedere” situation; Doug Benson was living with Rob Stone at the time of shooting. This is what he says:

    “the semi-definitive story is that my roommate at the time, rob stone, played kevin on MR BELVEDERE, and he came home early one day and i said “why are you home early?” and he said “Christopher Hewitt sat on his own balls.” for a longer version, check me out on jay mohr’s podcast, MOHR STORIES, plopping soon.

    sandler was definitely never there. he got the story from me. and rob wasn’t the sort to make things up, especially a story about an older gentleman he admired sitting on his own balls. so i’m guessing brice wasn’t on set when the incident occurred, and no one told him about it. because he was a child.”

    I’m surprised no one mentioned that “Circus Boy” was played by a young Mickey Dolenz. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Circus_Boy

    Maybe a little late but catching up with episodes. In this episode it was said that the British call “Ball Breakers” bunny burners, i think it he meant to say Bunny Boilers, as the rabbit in the movie was being boiled.
