Imagine some sort of stirring patriotic dwarven music rising to a crescendo in the background as Dwalin makes his speech. The idea here was to write something in the first three panels that would make a movie-defining scene that appears in the trailer and all the TV ads - if this were a movie.

2016-03-22 Rerun commentary: That really is quite a speech. I'm very proud of that one.

I'm proud of what Dwalin says too.
