*** Even better in the novelization: Kara climbs on top of Draco to jump on his stomach, causing him to start {{Corpsing}}.

Added DiffLines:

*** Certainly is more amusing as in the novelization, Draco's trying hard not to laugh while Kara's jumping Bowen.

Added DiffLines:

** The novelization has a tad bit more banter:
-->'''Bowen''': I suppose scorching her's out of the question.
-->'''Draco''': Absolutely!
-->'''Bowen''': It would impress the yokels.
-->'''Draco''': Will you listen to yourself?

Added DiffLines:

* Siveth tries to give Lukas dating advice. It goes poorly somewhere around the 'compliment her scent' part.

* The scene where Brother Gilbert sits on Draco, who has [[ShapeShifting disguised himself as a white boulder]]. Gilbert is attempting to write a song about Bowen, and taps his quill on Draco's head to sharpen the point. The "boulder" opens one eye in surprise and annoyance, creating a bit of visual hilarity.

** And then it gets even better when Kara thinks she's defending Draco from Bowen, he starts admitting the ruse, while in the background, Draco is silently waving his hand to indicate "No, stop!", and ends by quickly drawing a line across his throat in the universal sign of "Shut UP!". Also funny from a meta perspective - think of how slow and expensive CGI was at the time, and they're using it to make a quick joke like that.

* At one point, Bowen is having a hard time lighting a cooking fire, and Draco offers to help. Never mind that the result is like taking a flamethrower to a tissue - "I hope you like it well done..." - but the way Draco lights it is good for a laugh; with almost a bored expression on his face, Draco pinches one nostril shut and exhales out the other, as if he's blowing his nose.

* There's a scene where Lian is fighting a bunch of soldiers. She knocks one guy's sword out of his hands, and it flies straight as an arrow and sinks into a post next to Geoff. A few moments later, a second sword flies at the pole and sticks into it as well, next to the first. And if that isn't enough, one of the soldiers has a decorative point on the top of his helmet, and ends up getting thrown headfirst at the pole and getting stuck in it as well.
