Did You Know?


The knife Gupta (Kunal Nayyar) throws to Louis (Josh Gad) is Buck's (Simon Pegg's) knife from Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs (2009).


Manny: What, what was that? Ellie, did you hear that?
Ellie: I heard it, Manny; whatever it is, it's miles away.
Manny: Peaches, you all right? Where is she, no teenager is ever up early.


Many of the pirates' weapons switch places and hands during the land bridge trap sequence. Firstly, Gupta, on Gutt's order, gives his dagger to Louis, who leaves it behind when he digs under the ice. When Gupta and Flynn chase Sid and Granny to the ship's underbelly shortly after, he has Gutt's dagger instead, which Gutt dropped at the ship's front when Louis smashed ice on his foot, and Flynn, who previously possessed a skull sword, has Raz's spear, which vanished from her grasp inexplicably after Manny broke free. Then, as Gupta and Flynn flee the ship's underbelly, then leave their weapons behind. As we cut back to the ship's topside, Raz has her spear back. Gutt is initially weaponless, but has his dagger back at the pirates corner Manny, Diego, Shira, Crash and Eddie. Gutt also has his original dagger back, and Flynn has his skull sword back. Then, in the shot where Precious blasts Gupta, Razz and Flynn, Gupta, Flynn and Gutt are all unarmed, while Raz's spear in knocked overboard with her. When Peaches cuts Ellie free shortly after, she does so with Gupta's dagger, tossing it away from the ship's front after. Finally, when the floe Manny and Gutt are on is raised by the seabed rock, the floe is initially weaponless, but gains Raz's spear, Gupta's dagger, Flynn's skull sword, and another sword knocked from Raz's punch earlier, all of which were in different locations. All four weapons are either lost overboard or broken during Manny and Gutt's fight.
