* MeetTheNewBoss: Said by Mr Slant and Dr Follett after [[spoiler:Winder dies and Snapcase becomes the new Patrician]]. In Latin, no less.

* DoomedMoralVictor: Parodied, as the villains consider "You may take our lives, but you'll never take our freedom" to be the dumbest revolutionary slogan ever. Specifically, Carcer replies "Wrong," and cue the hail of crossbow bolts.

** A literal example when Vimes spots someone hiding in a doorway because their black clothing makes the shadows too dark. This reinforces young Vetinari's decisions on clothing later in the story.

* TheMentor:
** Thanks to time travel, Vimes gets to play this role for himself... though in reality he spends only a small portion of his time training his protégé and much more doing badass and heroic (or anti-heroic) things on his own, and takes pains to keep young Sam from doing anything that'd attract attention to himself. Also spending money like water, because he knows for a fact that he will "die" at the end of the week.
** Madam also plays this role for Vetinari, being an older, DistaffCounterpart version of him, even owning an elderly and smelly tomcat (as he will one day have a smelly old dog). She educates him about the usefulness of men like Keel, and how killing someone isn't always the best answer (though she will if it ''is'' the best answer).

* PresentCompanyExcluded: Pithy slogans have it hard in Ankh-Morpork, a city where no self-respecting god can say so much as "Let there be light," without being greeted by a chorus of "What color?" and the result of Reg's declaration "You can take our lives, but you'll never take our freedom!" is chronicled elsewhere on this page. So it should be no surprise that the initial defiant cry of "Death to the fascist oppressors!" from behind the original Whalebone Lane barricade gets quickly amended to "Death to the fascist oppressors, present company excepted! All right, is everybody happy now?"
