Letti: Wow! He must have been a wizard then.
Young Sophie: But he was so kind to me. He rescued me, Letti.
Letti: Of course he did, he was trying to steal your heart. You were so lucky Sophie, if that wizard were Howl, he would have eaten it.
Young Sophie: No he wouldn't, Howl only does that to beautiful girls.
Continuity mistake: When Howl first flies with Young Sophie, he wears a ring on each hand. As they take off, one of the rings momentarily vanishes.
