* RememberTheNewGuy: The Lavish family is an influential and prolific family but they never made an appearance before this book. For the most part it's justified since not a lot of Discworld characters operate on the same level of society as them but even in later Watch books when Vimes in rubbing elbows (or butting heads as the case may be) with Ankh Morpork's elite they never receive a single mention.

Added DiffLines:

** Gladys, after reading a feminist treatise, declares "[[Music/{{Eurythmics}} The sisters are doing it for themselves.]]" Moist wonders what "it" is, exactly.

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* SeriesContinuityError: A slight one: students of the Department of Necro- ahem, [[InsistentTerminology Postmortem Communications]] call the black robes and skull rings "Babe Magnets". However, Discworld/LordsAndLadies makes it clear that magnetism is an obscure force in Discworld, almost wholly unknown to the Wizard community, and the word "magnetism" doesn't exist at all; the only ones with any sort of familiarity with it are Blacksmiths, who refer to it as "The Love of Iron". Although Ponder Stibbons seems curious about it at the end of that book, it seems unlikely to have been studied beyond the High Energy Magic department, certainly not to the point of being given a name and being used as an idiom by students of a different department.

** In a minor variation, the mint employee asks Moist not to ask about a certain coin. When Moist absently does so, he replies he's glad Moist asked.

* TakeFive: Vetinari tells the employees of the Blind Letter Office that it's time for them to take their tea break, so he can talk to Moist. He actually has to add "Somewhere else" because they try to take their tea break ''in'' the Blind Letter Office at first.

** 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.
