one favorite memory is the night, just a few months into shooting, when wood challenged monaghan to a drinking contest at the matterhorn, their regular drinking hole in wellington. the two downed six shots off jagermeister each, sending wood into oblivion. they stumbled out of the bar, headed over the new zealand’s version of 7-eleven, and wood entered and screamed to an audience of late-night shoppers, “I WANT PORN AND CHOCOLATE.” after the two acquired the requisite booty, they went back to monaghan’s place, and according to wood, he passed out. according to monaghan, he indulged - but he admits to not liking chocolate.
