Best ever! The is is officially stamped with my head canon for what the heck happened in Budapest.Do you think it would have been even better if you had it in reverse and done it as a count down story with what actually "happened" in Budapest at the end?
I'm not sure. While it may have made what happened in Budapest more funny, I think it would have lost the underlying story. That brief exchange in the movie has always struck me as one that happens when an inside joke goes so far, they can't even tell if they're joking anymore. I was going for that slow build up of missions that were actually like Budapest, to missions that are so weird that they can only compare to something that never even happened.
Gotcha. Budapest. The standing wave in their lives. Never to be collapsed. ;)
