* RealMenTakeItBlack: Vimes takes his coffee black. He tries to order it "black as a moonless night", but the owner picks apart the metaphor until Vimes finally settles for "a moonless night as black as that coffee."

* TastyGold: The dragon is offered the newly forged crown, and licks it. They're very chemically sensitive apparently. Vimes considers the chances of the crown actually being made out of gold (It's mentioned elsewhere that "gold" things in Ankh-Morpork have just as much gold in them as there is gold in seawater), then compares the situation to finding out that sugar was actually salt after having put three spoonfuls in your coffee. The dragon then overkills the priest who gave it the crown (shooting a flame so hot that nothing is left but smoke); suffice to say, the dragon wasn't amused.

->''They may be called the Palace Guard, the City Guard, or the Patrol. Whatever the name, their purpose in any work of heroic fantasy is identical: it is, round about Chapter Three (or ten minutes into the film) to rush into the room, attack the hero one at a time, and be slaughtered. No-one ever asks them if they wanted to.''\\

** Vetinari is unusually petulant and emotive, although it's probably just a matter of CharacterDevelopment:
-->Five minutes later the Patrician was striding the length of the Oblong Office, fuming.\\
"They were laughing at me," said the Patrician. "I could tell!"

** Also, Vimes is shown as loving Ankh Morpork and hating kings so much that when a dragon is destroying his city and being revered as a king, that he picks up an ape by the chest fur and shakes it in a rage. The Librarian decides not to make an issue of it, since a man who can pick up a three hundred pound orangutan without noticing clearly has more important things on his mind.
