* XylophonesForWalkingBones: Susan Sto Helit recalls a visit to her grandfather as a child. She asked for a xylophone: her grandfather took his robe off and gave her two little hammers. It began to dawn on her that there was something odd about your grandfather being an animated skeleton, as ''Death'' is usually depicted.

* RetroactiveWish: When the wizards work out that the various minor fairies are spontaneously forming when people mention their function, the Dean quickly jumps in with "What, like the 'Give the Dean a Huge Bag of Money Goblin'?" It doesn't work because wishful thinking is a far cry from belief.

* FunnyBackgroundEvent: During the final confrontation, while [[spoiler:Teatime is threatening Susan with Death's sword]], Death is awkwardly holding a cookie he'd picked up and hadn't gotten to eat. He even glances down at it a couple times, as if he's wondering if he could get away with eating it when nobody's looking.

** In any scene with Albert, he'll be doing mild slapstick while other characters are talking.

* EstablishingCharacterMoment: Mr. Teatime is introduced having entered head assassin Lord Downey's chamber undetected, by climbing down the chimney. He plays with Downey's dog while he waits to be noticed. This shows he's both a badass and has a whimsical, childlike personality. His conversation with Downey shows the other aspect of his personality.

* LeavingFoodForSanta: On the Discworld, children leave out a pork pie and a glass of sherry for the Hogfather, and a turnip for the hogs that pull his sleigh. Albert deals with the pies and sherry (particularly enthusiastically when it comes to the sherry).

Added DiffLines:

* BlackAndGreyMorality: Teatime tries to invoke this, reasoning that anyone fighting Death would be seen as the good guy by default. He overestimates the terror of an animate skeleton (especially when it's just sitting in a chair drinking tea) and underestimates his own unsettling nature.
