Does it matter which order we put the methods?

At 4:54 in the video, we are beginning to start inserting the dispense() method. Normally, I place any new code exactly where Craig is placing new code. We put in the isEmpty() method immediately following the fill() method, and now we are putting this new dispense() method code right in the middle of those two.

Does it really matter where it is placed at, or can I just place it following the isEmpty() method?

No it does not matter at all where in the class the method declaration is placed. When you actually call a method Java will go through the entire class looking for it either way, so the placement is irrelevant.
