Trivia: Thor enters the pet store and calls for a horse, and then Jane picks him up in her Pinzgauer 716 truck. The joke is that the Pinzgauer is named after an Austrian breed of horse, thus Thor got a ride on a horse.

Trivia: The post credit scene was written and directed by Joss Whedon.

More quotes from Thor

Question: Since Loki is the son of Laufey the Frost Giant, why doesn't he look like one?

Answer: When initially found by Odin, he does. Something then acts on him that causes him to mimic Odin's more human appearance, which he then keeps until his exposure to the frost giants during the events of the film, which tips him off to his true nature. Whether this was caused by some magic inherent in Loki even as a baby or whether Odin did something to disguise the child's true origin is unrevealed.
