* TranquilFury: Angua finds Vimes' notebook with the names of women and sums of money, and is upset that he's spending his money on prostitutes despite being married. Carrot, without looking at her, without even raising his voice, shows her that those are the pensions he pays (out of his own salary) to the widows and orphans of the Watch.

* TranquilFury: Angua finds Vimes' notebook with the names of women and sums of money, and is upset that he's spending his money on prostitutes despite being engaged to be married. Carrot, without looking at her, without even raising his voice, shows her that those are the pensions he pays (out of his own salary) to the widows and orphans of the Watch. It's worth noting that this is quite likely the angriest Carrot has ''ever'' been in the entire series- he grips Angua by the wrist and refuses to release her or budge an inch until Sergeant Colon comes in and explains who all the women on the list really are.
