Funny / The BFG

  • The BFG lets loose a Whizzpopper...for the Queen of England. She takes it in stride.
    Queen: I think, on the whole...I prefer the bagpipes.
  • The maid, Mary's reaction to seeing the BFG.
    • Followed by the military leaders' reaction,
    At least that....Beat (BFG looking calmly at them)
    • The Seargeant's rather understated reaction deserves a mention:
    Blimey. He's a big fella, ain't he.
  • The nightmare the BFG releases among the giants and the giants' subsequent reactions to it.
  • 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."
  • The Heads of the Army and Air Force having a childish argument over wether they should use guns or bombs to defeat the Giants.
    Air Force: Pow! Ka-boom! Bombs!
    Army: (makes machine gun noises) Kaput! Tanks!
    Air Force: Ka-boom!
    Army: Kaput!
