* '''Breitenfeld'''.
** "His name was Gustavus Adolphus, and there were those among his followers who thought him the only monarch in Europe worthy of the name. They were right, and the man was about to prove it. For one of the few times in human history, royalty was not a lie."

** She isn't the only one who wants to be sure Diego is really most sincerely dead. Dan Frost admits he was tempted to shoot the body a couple of times just in case and the doctor who conducted the autopsy has to deny that he stuck a stake through the heart.

* Sharon Nichols performs a Crowning ''Surgery'' of Awesome. She was a nurse up-time and after the Ring of Fire starts learning as much as she can about medicine from her father, the only MD who happened to be in Grantville at the time. She is sent as an ambassador and medical teacher to Italy in ''1634: The Galileo Affair.'' In that book, the above Ruy Sanchez is injured in the stomach, which everyone down-time knows will result in a slow and painful death. [[spoiler: Nichols cuts him open, considers whether to stitch up the relevant organ but ultimately decides to amputate, and sews him back up, in full view of all the doctors they can find on short notice. He's on his feet again in a week or less.]] To the down-timers, modern medicine is almost literally a miracle. To Sharon, she was just a nurse up-time. The book points out that "nurses" have a lot more training up-time than they do down-time, but still, she has clearly learned a lot since the Ring of Fire.

* In ''The Kremlin Games'', our protagonists have a problem: They have the Tsar and Tsarina in their group. Trouble is, the Tsar has accidentally sparked a [[PuppetKing power struggle]] with the Boyar Duma, and the towns people and local military detail they're entering by barge may or may not side with them. So how do they get around it? [[RefugeInAudacity The Tsar and Tsarina stand in plain view of the crowd, waiving to the people as they dock while the more action-oriented protagonists sneak in the back way, using the spectacle as a distraction.]] Doubles as a CrowningMomentOfFunny.
