I really wanted the giants vs. dwarves payoff to be "No, we're not like giant giants, we're all cousins. Our great-grandfather was Bob Giant." "Wait, your great-grandfather was Bob Giant? Our great-grandfather was Bob Giant! Our grandmother married Stu Dwarf!" "Your grandmother was Aunt Linda?" "Yeah!"

That actually would have been a great payoff.

Also, Clare Foster is a revelation. I feel bad for laughing as hard as I did at her line when she rode up on the brawl about "curiously similarly-heighted men" or whatever, because it's just a stupid, stupid line, but she sold it.

I think I saw her in Avenue Q many years ago (her Wikipedia listing says she was understudying at the time I saw it, and I remember a laundry list of understudies at that show).

Nick Frost and Tad Cooper the mighty bearded dragon are everything to me!

I'm pretty sure that princess totally shaves her armpits, btw.

Heh, I wondered if anyone else noticed that we didn't even get an armpit-hair-merkin shot there.

That was quite a Phantom Tollbooth shoutout with the giants and dwarves, I think. Same kind of gag except with multiple people.
