“Four years ago, I was just a guy who had a crush on a girl who had a boyfriend. And I had to do the hardest thing I ever had to do, which was just to wait. Don’t get me wrong—I flirted with her. Pam, I can now admit in front of friends and family that I do know how to make a photocopy. I didn’t need your help that many times. And do you remember how long it took you to teach me to drive stick?”  "Like a year.“  "I’ve been driving stick since high school. For a really long time that’s all I had. Little moments with a girl who saw me as a friend. And a lot of people told me I was crazy to wait this long for a date with a girl who I worked with, but I think, even then I knew, I was waiting for my wife.“

JK: It was right there that I started to get choked up because when you look at me, saying, “Please say something nice.” And the hardest part is um…I take it all away at the end. I, like, pretend that it never happened.
My favorite part of the scene is Jenna’s face; how she’s actually kind of excited that I had a crush on her. And she’s not sure what to do with it, but she’s excited. Then, as she leaves, I say, “It’s no big deal,” and I kinda break her heart. And I thought that was awful.
JF: Yeah, I um…I actually walked out that door and cried.
JK: You really did. Yeah, I remember that.
JF: I actually cried…because it broke my heart.
