“Can we please just stop talking about this? We have a real actual problem here.”
Has anyone actually ever talked about this scene? I know, I know, it’s barely 10 words and probably one to two seconds long. But just look at him. First what he says. He doesn’t say “I don’t feel about her that way!” or “I’m just helping her save this place!”. He’s not talking about himself. Another point to see how selfless he is. Her priorities are first. If she’s engaged to another man, he can’t have her. End of story. And also look at his face. My parents would always be kind of like the trolls, teasing me about any random boy I talked about. Except I would roll my eyes and grunt, obviously annoyed. But look at him! His eyes are wide and very serious. He almost looks sad, and desperate. And If you focus on that last frame…
It is almost like he is telling this to himself.
