** Ponder getting two otherwise stubborn, old wizards to listen to him is a ''major'' moment of awesome. And the fact that he does that by revealing that he has so many jobs that he could just rule the University (also, the fact that he manages to be better at all of them than any of his predecessor was at just one of them). Ridcully even ask how could no one notice, and Ponder answers that no one did because all the reports about his ever growing number of roles were reported to the same person, Ponder himself.

* How about "Ball lost! Substitute ball!"? Remember... the ball shall be called the ball, and if it's played with as the ball by 3 players (ie. Nobbs (no relation), Nutt, and Trev).

* Ponder Stibbons gets one, for sure. [[spoiler:He has been given [[HiddenDepths so many jobs]] (seeing that he is the only one that will do anything) that he has more than half of the votes on the University Council. ''By himself''.]]

* Mr. Nutt in general, being a humble erudite who has memorized the contents of several ''libraries'', but also is incredibly strong and wise. It would make for an annoying [[OurElvesAreBetter Elves are Better]] / CanonSue reaction if he wasn't [[spoiler: an orc. [[OurOrcsAreDifferent Discworld orcs]] [[SuperSoldier are different]].]] But the best example would have to be towards the end, right after the climax of the book, before the laugh -- when surrounded by a mob of people chanting [[spoiler: Orc! Orc!]], expecting to see him react in... ''[[TheStoic some]] [[UnstoppableRage fashion]]'', they slowly stop when he just doesn't. He then politely addresses them over a megaphone, proving that he finally understands Ankh-Morpork's working class football culture.

* At the beginning of the book, Ponder is shown thinking very carefully about how to report to Ridcully the fact that they have to play a match of football to keep their meals, and the fact that he does because he already had found a fallacy (namely, they had just to play, not to win or anything). It's shown then that not only Vetinari already foresaw that, but he aready had a countermeasure ready.



** And then entire crowd starts capping and cheering him because of the sheer awesomeness of that.



** Even earlier, Ridcully learns that one of the professors is StraightGay. His reaction can best be summarized as 'Oh, really? Good for him.', and makes a comment that [[SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments there's always room for more love in the world.]]

** The librarian recovers sometimes after that, and makes and absolutely spectacular entrance.

* The captain of the opposing team just lost to the wizards, takes his time to make sure that the match actually is over, and then starts calling out Andy for his cheating and resorting to violence.

*** Even ''Vetinari'' thought that was awesome. And [[CrowningMomentOfFunny funny]].

-->"Because if anyone has poisoned our Librarian, then, although I am not, by nature, a vindictive man, I will see to it that this university hunts down the poisoner by every thaumic, mystic and occult means available and makes the rest of their life not only as horrible as they can imagine it, but as horrible as I can imagine it. And you can depend on it, gentlemen, that I have already started work on it."

** or the fact that it was the enemy team's captain who gave them the opportunity to implement it very quickly. Says a lot about the man that he was willing to ensure fair play by ensuring his team lost.

** Well Pepe says "...you'll be able to see by the time you wipe the blood out of your eyes..." so probably a slash to the forehead.
** Perhaps a very subtle, [[NightmareFuel Nightmare Fuel-filled]] BrickJoke: early on in the book it's mentioned that a man with one eye can often get a free drink at any bar. It could imply that Pepe ''[[EyeScream blinded him]]'' in one. He'd still be able to see with the other, after all.
** I assumed he cut up his eyelids.

** Before that, her telling off a roomful of wizards, saying they don't understand anything about football. And saying that their uniforms will "make them look like they've got bosoms!"
