Joining Shortz on this track are also director Patrick Creadon and crossword constructor Merl Reagle. Shortz comes across as a naturally funny guy who tells some amusing anecdotes. Creadon describes Jon Stewart as the most aggressive puzzle solver he came across and who made him laugh so much that at one point in the film he points out when the camera shakes a little because he was laughing so hard. Reagle talks about how he is always thinking up crosswords and has tons of ideas for ones that he has still yet to use. This is a very genial, engaging track that compliments the documentary quite well.
