The movie was over once the marshmallow man exploded - and as we edited the film, we just kept making the transition from that moment through to their leaving the building shorter and shorter. There was more dialogue on top - especially between Louis and Dana - and we had another sequence in front of the building where the was dialogue. I just cut all that stuff out. It was over. The movie was over - and the sooner we got to the credits, the better."
