Added DiffLines:

* The film version has the Queen's palace staff, who manage to completely sell their scenes as the ComicallySerious. To wit, they take a 24-foot giant and his 6-year old companion, drinks fizzing downward and causing {{Fartillery}}, and said giant accidentally spitting ''an entire saucer of piping hot coffee'' on them in complete stride.

** The live action movie makes it even funnier: [[spoiler:the ''Queen herself'' and her entire group were the ones that drank the drink that causes it. The Queen still takes it in stride.]]

Added DiffLines:

* Dahl's narration is funny as always. One line from right after Sophie is kidnapped from her room by the BFG reads, more or less: "And if you can think of anything more terrifying than that happening to you in the middle of the night, let's hear about it."
