One of the most hilarious things that happened while shooting this episode was when the cast spontaneously started singing the flower song from Tangled during the shooting of latter half of the episode. Almost every take ended with the flower being held up and sung to.
Although this is the first episode of Season 1, it was actually the third one we shot. That’s because it’s generally a good idea to shoot the beginning in the middle of the schedule. That way, while the cast and crew are still feeling out their roles, you don’t have all that glaring at the audience in the first thing they see.
