Now that we are in the midst of the long winter of our discontent — which in this case means the wait between seasons of Stranger Things — it’s the ideal time to take a look back at some of the cast’s on-set antics, as revealed in a series of blooper reels. Here are 15 times the cast danced, broke props, repeatedly said the word “boobies,” made each other laugh, and made the crew concerned for their safety while filming.
When Millie Bobby Brown was so in character that the presence of a camera threw her off.
When one of the Department of Energy vans went off course during a stunt and hit this poor, innocent car.
When Caleb McLaughlin opened a door with maybe a little too much enthusiasm, and got briefly caught in between a scene and reality as a result.
When Gaten Matarazzo slammed a prop phone with such force that it fell off the wall before sheepishly greeting the camera with it.
When Noah Schnapp as Will as a wizard made a surprising prophecy.
When Caleb McLaughlin broke while Finn Wolfhard tried to deliver a complicated line, and Finn was sympathetic to his struggles.
When David Harbour found something undeniably hilarious about his very serious delivery of the word “grandma.”
And when his scene partners, Finn Wolfhard and Mille Bobby Brown, started laughing, too.
When Joe Keery said this and tempted the Netflix gods…
…which was naturally followed up by this montage of them saying “boobies,” if not quite 100 times, enough times to make an impression.
When Gaten Matarazzo slipped on set and reassured witnesses that it was all just part of the process (of living life).
And when he kept breaking into giggles during a scene, which led him to make this creative recommendation straight to camera.
When Joseph Quinn tripped on a Vecna vine and delivered a deadpan assessment of their dire situation.
We now interrupt your previously scheduled programming to bring you this image of a rare smiling Vecna.
When the whole gulag plot line caught up to David Harbour.
When Charlie Heaton kept breaking during Eduardo Franco’s line delivery.
And finally, here’s one more laughing Vecna for the road.
