Given the recognition of the present, the “Stranger Issues” writers’ room has its personal official account on Twitter, the place they usually reply questions or drop enjoyable details and teasers for followers. In July of 2022, as followers had been reeling from the dying of Eddie, the account broke the information that “I like you, man” was improvised. This made followers much more emotional, as Quinn has impressed a fanbase as passionate because the one for the character he performed. A cursory look on the quote tweets of their put up boasts lots of (if not hundreds) of followers admitting that this makes the scene hit more durable than earlier than. The group has not talked about if there have been alternate line reads or revealed what the unique remaining line was as written within the script. Regardless, Quinn’s instincts as an actor had been stable, and his improv was proper on the spot.
On a lighter observe, “I like you, man” wasn’t the one line Quinn improvised. In season 4 episode 8, Eddie and the remainder of the crew break into (and hotwire) a camper van and Robin (Maya Hawke) expresses discomfort with him driving. Eddie then replies, “Oh, I am beginning the sucker. Harrington’s bought it … do not ya, huge boy?” to indicate Steve Harrington (Joe Keery) will probably be in cost. The road is such an ideal distillation of Eddie’s sarcastic nature, and one other line Quinn got here up with himself.
