'''Valkyrie:''' ''[smiling]'' I feel like I know you too!too! It's weird!


*** Of course, in-universe, the last time anyone saw Thor he was [[Film/TheAvengers2012 saving the world]]; Loki, on the other hand, unleashed an alien invasion in an attempt to conquer Earth and tried to personally murder an elderly civilian. Asking Loki for a selfie would make one akin to someone writing fan mail to serial killers.

Added DiffLines:

**On a mundane level the scene reads like a toddler reluctantly doing what his older siblings tell him to do after a squabble.

* In an alternate scene Doctor Strange didn't trap Loki in a different dimension, but in a porta potty at a construction site, only accessable with a magic key. Thor gets there right after a construction worker exits said porta potty, who gives him a weird look. Thor then opens it to find Loki in an extremely awkward position. The God of Mischief is accordingly pissed of.

* Due to a lack of MagicPants, upon reverting from Hulk Banner is of course [[NakedPeopleAreFunny naked]]. And covered in junk like beads and a recently-tanned leather loincloth. Solution? They just happen to be in the Quinjet he flew off in, and whaddya know? There's a stash of Stark's clothes. So he spends the rest of the movie participating in all this Creator/JackKirby-style superhero SpaceOpera while wearing a Music/DuranDuran [[http://imgur.com/C8raIhe T-shirt.]] Banner doesn't care for them, though, particularly how the trousers are too tight around the crotch (complete with unseemly tugging because apparently [[CompensatingForSomething Banner has a bigger package than Stark]]). When Thor puts a towel on his head to hide from the guards,Banner then tries to adopt the Tony Stark persona as a "disguise" and throws on Tony's sunglasses which, hilariously, do ''not'' flatter his face at all. Thor impatiently points out that since no one knows who Banner is, he doesn't need a disguise.

** Loki asking Thor to build a [[MemorialStatue statue]] for him with his helmet on, specifying "with the big bendy horns" as if there even was an alternative. Thor immediately agrees to it and promises "We will build a big statute for you", making it look to the people of Asgard that they have to thank Thor for that tawdry 60+ft statue.

*** When Skurge finally arrives, Loki has already been outed by Thor, but Skurge nonetheless starts to introduce Thor as if he hasn't arrived to late. Loki angrily turns on Skurge and hisses that he was supposed to warn him.

* Valkyrie's intro. She steps out of her ship doing a badass walk while taking a swig of booze... only to stumble off the ramp and land next to the corpse of a large creature. And when she tries to push herself up, she puts a hand right through the creature's rib cage!
-->'''Valkyrie:''' He's mine...! ''[falls over]''

* Creator/AnthonyHopkins' spot-on impersonation of Creator/TomHiddleston's Loki is just hilarious; starting with him mouthing the lines of the actor portraying Loki in the play, him muttering "[[OhCrap Oh, shit]]" under his breath when Thor discovers him, up to him nervously trying and failing to talk his way out, and ending with him shouting "ALRIGHT, I YIELD!", before he changes forms. It's a sight to behold.

** The angelic music that accompanies the performance is provided by an actual chorus (with accompanying chimes). Even better, it's the same exact melody as Music/BrianTyler's [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Kr3BTVgbNY score for the original scene]] in ''The Dark World'', retroactively invoking the LeftTheBackgroundMusicOn trope.

* Doctor Strange's appearance in the film is just one extended comedy skit. One gets the feeling that though he's doing his best to be helpful and polite, Stephen is '''not happy''' that Thor brought Loki to his hometown and wants the little troll ''gone''.

* The fact that the film's score, composed by Mark Mothersbaugh, is mostly 80s-style synth tracks is both funny and awesome.
