Of course, a lot of it had to do with how funny the cast of the show are both on and off camera.
“Zach Woods has some of the funniest improvisations on set,” Osment explained during an appearance on Entertainment Weekly: The Show (video above). “When we finished the dialogue of a scene, with all these terrific improvisers, we’ll go beyond the script and throw in extra lines. Zach’s were some of the things that were the hardest to keep a straight face for. He’s just a really, really funny and sharp guy.”

And on the first hole, he was really rusty and hadn’t played in a while. But by the back nine was playing great. And in that great deadpan of his, he was like, ‘I’m just a natural athlete.'”
