Posted:Righto, its 4:50am, slightly drunk, I do what every normaly person would do, crack open some 8pence noodles from Kwik Save and watch Labrynth, but then I noticed shock a continuity error, and its a big one I thought i'd share! admitedly its annoying when you get the real film buffs that are like hey that coffee stain wasnt there earlier etc but wait this is a bigun

Labryth, the film we all know and love, shock has a fatal error!

Those lovely words we can all say to send our baby siblings away to that Acrylic weilding loony, well what could they be.

She says her words and those naughty evesdropping goblins say no it doesnt even begin with 'I Wish!' but then he literally 5 seconds later says' I wish the goblins would take you away right now, thats not hard is it?'

So it does start with I wish, hmm contradicting yourself there my goblin chummy me lad.



I think i need some sleep......

Posted:do you mean that the goblin's implying that the magic words don't start with 'i wish'? but the words actually do?

from memory sarah says "goblin king, goblin king take this child far away from me" or something to that extent, thinking they're the words, and the goblin says, "what's this rubbish, that doesn't even start with 'i wish'", meaning that she hasn't even gotten the start right, then she says, on impulse "i wish the goblins would come and take you away, right now", which are the correct words.

easy to misinterpret though, especially if your drunk and tired biggrin methinks i've watched it one or two times too many

Posted:yeah rolleyes but that's why the goblins DO take Toby away because she *dose* say "I wish the Goblin king would take you away right now" ....they can't take him 'till she says "I wish...."

and so then when she dose finally say *i wish* they take him away to the Labrynth...

I agree with Myco on this one smile

Posted:I think what wills is saying is that in the movie sarah says

*I wish.....*

and the goblins go....*ohhhhhh* all disapointed like

and then one says *it doesnt even start with "I wish"*

Then the other goblin says *has she said it yet ?* and gets sushed..

and then the same goblin that says that it doesnt even start with I wish says *I wish the goblins would come and take you away right now.... that isnt hard is it?"

So he contradicts himself...

is that what you are saying will? ubbloco ubbloco

SARAH: THERE WAS A BEAUTIFUL YOUNG GIRL
SARAH: WHOSE STEPMOTHER ALWAYS MADE HER STAY HOME WITH THE BABY.
SARAH: THE BABY WAS A SPOILED CHILD.
SARAH: HE WANTED EVERYTHING FOR HIMSELF,
SARAH: AND THE GIRL WAS PRACTICALLY A SLAVE.
SARAH: BUT WHAT NO ONE KNEW
SARAH: WAS THAT THE GOBLIN KING FELL IN LOVE WITH HER
SARAH: AND GAVE HER CERTAIN POWERS.
SARAH: SO ONE NIGHT,
SARAH: WHEN THE BABY HAD BEEN PARTICULARLY CRUEL TO HER,
SARAH: SHE ASKED THE GOBLINS FOR HELP.
[SNORING]
GOBLIN: LISTEN!
SARAH: "SAY YOUR RIGHT WORDS," THE GOBLINS SAID,
SARAH: "AND WE'LL TAKE THE BABY TO THE GOBLIN CITY,
SARAH: AND YOU WILL BE FREE."
GOBLINS: AH!
SARAH: BUT THE GIRL KNEW THE KING OF THE GOBLINS
SARAH: WOULD KEEP THE BABY IN HIS CASTLE FOREVER AND EVER
SARAH: AND TURN IT INTO A GOBLIN,
SARAH: SO SHE SUFFERED IN SILENCE
SARAH: UNTIL ONE NIGHT
SARAH: WHEN SHE WAS TIRED FROM DOING HOUSEWORK
SARAH: AND HURT BY THE HARSH WORDS OF HER STEPMOTHER
SARAH: AND SHE COULD NO LONGER STAND IT.
TOBY: WAA!
SARAH: OH, ALL RIGHT! ALL RIGHT!
SARAH: KNOCK IT OFF.
SARAH: COME ON.
SARAH: STOP IT! STOP IT!
SARAH: I'LL SAY THE WORDS,
SARAH: NO, I MUSTN'T.
SARAH: I MUSTN'T SAY...
GOBLINS: UH!
SARAH: I WISH...
SARAH: I WISH!
GOBLIN: SHE'S GOING TO SAY IT!
GOBLIN: SAY WHAT?
GOBLIN: SHUT UP!
GOBLIN: \YOU\ SHUT UP!
GOBLIN: LISTEN! SHE'S GOING TO SAY THE WORDS.
SARAH: I CAN BEAR IT NO LONGER!
SARAH: GOBLIN KING! GOBLIN KING!
SARAH: WHEREVER YOU MAY BE,
SARAH: TAKE THIS CHILD OF MINE FAR AWAY FROM ME!
GOBLIN: THAT'S NOT IT!
GOBLIN: WHERE'D SHE LEARN THAT RUBBISH?
GOBLIN: IT DOESN'T EVEN START WITH "I WISH"!
SARAH: OH, TOBY, STOP IT!
SARAH: I WISH I DID KNOW WHAT TO SAY
SARAH: TO MAKE THE GOBLINS TAKE YOU AWAY.
GOBLIN: "I WISH THE GOBLINS WOULD COME TAKE YOU AWAY RIGHT NOW!"
SARAH: I WISH...
SARAH: I WISH...
GOBLIN: DID SHE SAY IT?
GOBLINS: SHUT UP! SHUT UP!
TOBY: WAA!
TOBY: WAA!
TOBY: WAA!
TOBY: WAA!
SARAH: I WISH THE GOBLINS \WOULD\ COME TAKE YOU AWAY...
SARAH: RIGHT NOW.

Posted:HA HA what was i doing last night.

And yes I am going on about a total Goblin contradiction!
I am sober and have watched it again, the goblins are disappointed becasue when she said for them to take Toby away the first time she said it wrong and that 'it doesnt even start with I wish'

but then when the goblin sorts tells her how to say it (obv without her hearing it) he says "I wish the goblins would come and take you away right now thats not hard is it!!''

So im right and the goblin is wrong!

the goblin is refering to what she says, that doesn't even start with i wish. the bit where she says "goblin king goblin king..." it doesn't even start with 'i wish'meaning she's got it completely wrong. "it" is refering to the words sarah's saying, not the magic words!

Posted:will, are you on drugs? wink

one goblin says "where did she learn that rubbish?"

'that' refers to the rhyme sarah has just said.

when the next goblin says "it doesn't even start with 'i wish'" the object has not suddenly changed to something else.

the 2nd goblin's 'it' refers to the same thing as the first goblin's 'that'

i.e. what sarah just said.

"goblin king, goblin king, wherever you may be, take this child of mine, far away from me"

which as you can see, does not start with "i wish".

the goblins, though ugly, unpleasent and not particularly fun to be around, are unfortunately entirely grammatically correct in this instance.
