Nothing like a compliment from a lady to get a man's attention. Finally noticing the not-insubstantial grip on his arm, Bugbear turns his head:

"Well thank you my dear, I've always SWEET MELORA YOU'RE HUGE!!"

Letting go of Wilian, Bugbear tries to recover his composure.

"uhh, err, I, um, that is, not huge, like, uh, you're obviously very, um, fit and, uh, large NO tall! I mean tall and, ah, healthy!"

Stumbling backwards both verbally and physically, Bugbear slips in a puddle of muck (he hopes) and falls backwards into Krivesh, knocking both of them down into the mud.
