* When [[spoiler:Otto the vampire]] appears in [[BigBad Lord De Worde's]] estate and [[spoiler:saves William. First he taunts De Worde's goons while launching them through the air with his punches, including asking why they didn't want to fight even when he was using their "civilized fisticuffs". Then he lifts Lord De Worde into the air, rips off his black ribbon of blood temperance and says (paraphrased and de-accented): "William doesn't want me to bite you, he says I am a good person. The question I have to ask myself is: How good am I? Or do I only have to ask myself, ''am I better than you?'']]

* William De Worde's final interaction with Lord Vetinari. With a single question he forces Lord Vetinari to attend a social function that he clearly would prefer to miss, made that wedding into possible the social event of the year, made his job much easier by filling inches and paid back one Harry King for his previous help with interest.

* Sacharissa pulling Mr. Pin's crossbow on Mr. Carney. [[spoiler:And it isn't even loaded]].

* Sacharissa pulling Mr. Pin's crossbow on Mr. Carney. [[spoiler:And it isn't even loaded]].loaded]].
* In addition to his usual {{Magnificent Bastard}}ry, Vetinari has a couple of understated ones throughout the book; when Mr Pin and Mr Tulip come to kidnap him, he anticipates trouble and strikes so fast the murderers are caught off balance, and he would certainly have done more damage had he not been surprised at seeing his double. Also, at the end of the book he corrects a printer's spelling mistake... [[HyperAwareness which is in the middle of the text, and from Vetinari's perspective is upside-down and back-to-front.]]
* Mr Pin and Mr Tulip's bad experiences in Ankh-Morpork are somewhat awesome for the city itself, and show how much it's progressed; the New Firm are dangerously forward-thinking and practical in ''other'' cities, but in Ankh-Morpork they're constantly behind the times and have trouble dealing with a competent, dedicated Watch and the sheer variety of people there, as shown by their attempt to use heavy-handed tactics in the undead bar [[MuggingTheMonster nearly getting them both killed and forcing them to back down.]]

* I've always liked William De Worde's final interaction with Lord Vetinari. With a single question he forces Lord Vetinari to attend a social function that he clearly would prefer to miss, made that wedding into possible the social event of the year, made his job much easier by filling inches and paid back one Harry King for his previous help with interest.

** Well, not so much forced him, as it pleased Vetinari to let William make the request, and to get to see lots of nobles standing there, all stately, for Harry King's daughter's wedding. Where he would be fine attending, but they will all be uncomfortable but too polite to say anything. Like Vimes, he takes his small vindictive pelasures of chance without comment, except internal. But William getting just a bit cheeky with Vetinari was definitely worth the entire book, to be honest.
