** That's the point; Jareth's promises are all hollow and empty, saying things that seem nice on the outside but really make no sense.

* Do as I say and I will be your slave. Does that line seem a little contradictory to anyone else?

* How ''did'' Sarah explain all the noise from the party at the end to her parents?

** People also seem to mistake her falling to the center of the Labyrinth as her picking the wrong door. The wrong door leads to certain death, which didn't happen to her. I've heard some people say that she only falls through the ground because she says "it's a piece of cake" - and she gets a curveball thrown at her whenever she says this elsewhere in the movie. It does reinforce the theme of not taking things for granted - as Sarah assumes that she's now found the right door and that everything will be easy. When she brags about making the right choice, the Labyrinth decides to punish her for it.

Added DiffLines:
** In her defence, she ''was'' only sixteen. And Sarah is a naturally hammy character anyway - since she's obviously very theatrical. I'm guessing some of her tantrums were meant to come across as over the top to show her immaturity.

** I felt the same way. I tend to find '80s media quite cheesy and overacted on the whole, so while I didn't think it was Academy Award-nomination deserving, there were only a few parts that I thought were so bad.

**** Your solution is a waste. The goal isn't to determine which guard is the liar, the goal is to figure out ''which door to take''. I'll never understand why people think that just asking either of them a simple question with a factual answer would solve the puzzle. Congratulaions, you now know which guard is the liar! But since you used up your one question, you can't ask the honest one which one is the correct door.

* Sarah, Sarah, Sarah. I saw the books in your room. Creator/HansChristianAndersen, [[Creator/TheBrothersGrimm Grimm]], [[Literature/TheWonderfulWizardOfOz Oz]], you obviously know your fairy tales and myths very well. And YET, you, when transported into a magical realm, given a fruit by someone who has admittedly been working for your enemy and whose honesty is suspect, without hesitation bite into it, not thinking it might, I don't know, cause you to never be able to leave, invalidate your claim to Toby, poison you, something like that? Why not make it a [[GreekMythology pomegranate and complete the bloody metaphor]]. Really, you should not be this GenreBlind when it's obvious you've studied the genre you're somehow fallen into a story of.

*** And it isn't clear, but I think she wrote that one, and she could never remember the most important line. Not everyone remembers every single thing they read and write, especially not in circumstances like these.
