"FAWCETT: This is an episode where we just wanted to have a ton of fun with Helena. We always laughed about the idea of Helena getting the chance to make out with a boy. And were kind of like, “Has she ever even kissed a boy before? That sort of began a kind of whole conversation about Helena’s backstory and has she ever slept with a boy? Has she ever been romantically involved? And so it was fun to think about putting her, this awkward weirdo, with a guy who kind of likes her. We really wanted Patrick to come in and do something on the show for us. And when we wrote this part, we all thought of him immediately and thought he would be the best person to put with Helena. I think Patrick knew we were trying to find him something in the show, but I don’t know that he was thinking he was going to get scenes with Helena where he actually had to slow dance with her and make out with her."
