I realize this is setting the bar kind of low, but I do think it’s significant that Best reaches down to help this buried dwarf when he’s in shock, instead of just standing there dumbstruck. He’s helped people all the time, but always while acting like he was putting on a performance. But he does have the INSTINCT to do right.

(Although as commenter Kyn pointed out, it would’ve been just hilarious if Best had jumped backwards shrieking “ZOMBIIIEEE!” and swinging his axe around like a lunatic.)

I wasn’t totally keen on “Galloping glockenspiels!” when Phil added it, but it’s grown on me now. It feels like Best trying to put this weird event back into his performative comfort zone.
