Dad, do you know what he did the first night I went out with him? We were walking across by the Seven-Eleven, and he pointed out some glass for me to walk around. And I always think of that when people say 'What are you doing with Lloyd Dobler?'
Say Anything writer/director Cameron Crowerecently revealedJohn Cusack’s character was not blasting Peter Gabriel’s “In Your Eyes” through his boom box on set during production of the film.
“It was a completely different song John Cusack was playing when we filmed. What he’s actually playing is Fishbone’s ‘Bonin’ in the Boneyard.’ John was a big Fishbone fan and turned us all onto the band. But when we watched the scene as filmed, with that tune playing outside Diane Court’s window, the effect wasn’t particularly romantic or yearning. It was: 'Hey girl, I love Fishbone and I’m not going to let you sleep.'”
