** also a meta-version for the Lavishes: the adjective of 'lavish' means 'sumptuously rich, elaborate or luxurious', and the Lavish family are definitely that. Also, the Lavishes mentioned by name are all named after luxury items: i.e. Cosmo = Cosmopolitan, a cocktail that is generally regarded as sophisticated; for added PTerry trademark wordplay, cosmopolitan is also a term meaning worldly-wise and experienced in the world at large. Pucci = fashion house that came to prominence during the 1950's; fans include Marilyn Monroe, and Madonna.

** At the beginning, Moist says this almost verbatim after seeing the state of the Mint and the Royal Bank. Vetinari lets him off the hook, only for Topsy Lavish to die and basically drag him into the position via inheritance.

* GonkyFemme: Gladys, the "female" golem from ''Going Postal'', returns. This time, she catches the attention of Adora, who gets quite miffed with a golem adopting the submissive, quiet role advised by Lady Deirdre Waggon (especially when Gladys turns her attention to Moist). So instead she replaces the copy of Lady Deirdre's book inside Gladys' head with Releventia Flout's feminism treatise, turning her into a burgeoning feminist.
