The Old Man/[[spoiler: The Trickster]] has his moments. At one point, he guesses that you are maybe head of a major charity, or you created the Internet.
-->'''Old Man:''' On behalf of humanity, thanks for the Internet!
** There's a callback to it later that's, if anything, even more funny; when you're not getting on with things as fast as he'd like he accuses you of being sweet on the White Witch and acts scandalized at the idea of such behavior from the hero who created the Internet.
