** 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.

** Pucci Lavish doesn't exactly confess to her family's crimes, because as confession suggests ''guilt''. What Pucci does is more bragging.

* 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.

* OldTimeyAnkleTaboo: Professor Feedle has been dead for several centuries but is still as randy as he was when alive. So when Moist makes a deal with him to let him haunt a strip club, he asks if it's "smutty" and if the women show their ankles.

** knowing the Lavish family, this could be a) because no one wants to be sued for mentioning them (FridgeBrilliance ?) or simply b) they're so damn petty and mean that no one wants to acknowledge them unless it's required. They didn't do anything important in the previous books, so everyone's narrative ignored them!

Added DiffLines:

** 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.
