Do Not bottom the pedal!

If you have an inexperienced helper it pays to put a block of wood or other firm object under the brake pedal to limit its travel. I've had a couple of helpers who ignored my "just press the pedal until it moves an inch or two" and floored the brake with a bleeder open. In both instances (GM cars) I ended up with a failed master cylinder within 2,000 miles.
