“Breaker of crockery.” From Thor (2011) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bOztBBSqDTM

 

“You won’t like me when I’m hangry.” Hangry – to be irritable from hunger. Parody of ‘You Won’t like me when I’m angry’, most famously from The Hulk. Head here for the trope: http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/YouWouldntLikeMeWhenImAngry and here for the Hulk: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hulk_(comics)

 

“Thor shot first.” Parody of ‘Han Shot First.” Star Wars (IV:A New Hope) – referencing a scene which was changed in the Special Edition of Star Wars, to show Han Solo shooting a bounty hunter in response to being shot at. The original showed him shooting the bounty hunter first (which gives a much better start to his character arc from rogue to hero.) http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Han_shot_first

 

Tricksters and hunger/food – Head back to Frithcast episode 26

“Would the Real Slim Shady please stand up?” Slim Shady is an alter ego of the rapper Eminem, see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Real_Slim_Shady

 

(As far as Suzanne remembers, in the original when the Giant king explains all his tricks at the end in the original, he misses out Thalfi’s races. Most of the translations and English versions have the giant king explain that Thalfi ran against Hugi – the speed of thought.)
