** Also, whenever someone quotes a line from a well-known Roundworld film which just doesn't work on Discworld without quite knowing why. Presumably ideas are leaking through universes, which is what happens to Hwel in ''Discworld/WyrdSisters''. For example: [[TheBluesBrothers "It's fifteen hundred miles to Ankh-Morpork, we've got three hundred and sixty-three elephants, fifty carts of forage, the monsoon's about to break and we're wearing... we're wearing... sort of things, like glass, only dark... dark glass things on our eyes..."]]

** The "resograph", which measures changes in the fabric of reality. Thanks to the influence of Holy Wood, it starts going crazy and [[ReadingsBlewUpTheScale eventually self-destructs]]. The name is pretty literal, since it apparently comes from Latin "res", "thing".[[note]]Elsewhere the magic measurement unit ''reson'' is explained as literally meaning "thingie".[[/note]]
