The fact that it was her own piece may also have been a factor, since the other reason he read his music was that it was closer to the mind of the composer.]]

No, not a GroinAttack, but a reference to his very first appearance in Feet Of Clay, where he takes down two humans, one of which where he runs up a trouser leg... and breaks the man's knee.

* EasyEvangelism: It takes about five minutes for any recurring Watch character to accept that goblins deserve the same rights as any other species, including [[NobleBigotWithABadge Sergeant Colon]]. Of course, given the make-up of the Watch (it's mentioned that goblins are pretty much the only sapient species not currently included), they're bound to be more understanding of the odder species on the Disc - they employ Nobby Nobbs, after all. [[spoiler: The rest of the Disc comes around once they see that goblins can create absolutely beautiful musical works, and therefore are not simply "vermin" to be ignored, enslaved, or exterminated.]]
** Although with Colon it takes [[spoiler: having a goblin soul accidentally get shoved in his head]] for a period of time to get him to come to terms with it all, and [[spoiler: the music wasn't just "absolutely beautiful"]], it was enough to make [[spoiler: Vetinari of all people]] take pause.
** Vetinari felt sympathy for the Goblins before the song was played, and in the opening pages, is discussing with Drumknott, his secretary, how terrible he finds their plight, that an entire race is regarded as vermin. And Vetinari is not a person typically known for having sympathy for anyone.
*** He does have very strict standards, however, as discussed in several other books.
** A more cynical way of looking at it is that, since Ankh-Morpork is a very rich superpower, the other rulers know better than to continue abusing a group they've recently extended full rights to, especially since it came about on behalf of the famous Samuel Vimes.

* FantasticRacism: In spades, directed towards the goblins. They're officially seen as vermin, and killing them [[spoiler: or even enslaving them and shipping them off to another continent]] is entirely legal. [[spoiler: At the end of the book, most major powers are passing legislations to regard them as sapient and under the protection of common law.]]
** Not surprisingly, the actions that the Goblins are forced to perform just to survive are used to "justify" the fact that they are treated the way they are. The thing is, the goblins are stuck having to perform these acts quite literally because they are hanging on the edge of survival. Let's put this in perspective: if a race is given no means of making an honest living, is hunted zealously where ever they are found, and is only, say, two feet to three feet tall and typically extremely malnourished due to poor diet and lack of a steady food supply, is it any surprise that they turn to thievery, will threaten uninvited strangers on sight, and are extremely "cowardly"?

* {{Foreshadowing}}: At the start, Vimes is given a bucket and spade as a joke by the Watch, even though he's not going to the seaside. He retorts that he wishes it ''was'' the seaside, there's smuggling and piracy at the seaside. [[spoiler: Smuggling proves to be the impetus of the entire plot, and the most holidayish part of his holiday is when he ends up on the Quirm coast with Young Sam, catching winkles. He also commits what is arguably piracy in seizing Captain Murderer's ship, although it turns out not to be, since kidnapping Jethro was illegal even if kidnapping the goblins wasn't.]]

The scene ends with one of the other ladies at the dinner turning to her husband and giving him the "exposed in the crotch department" code.

** The ominously ticking owl clock that troubles Death/Bill Door in ''ReaperMan'' is also present in Miss Beedle's cottage to worry Vimes. Like Death looking out over fields of corn, Vimes has an epiphany looking down on the Ramkin land from a high place. Whether he wants to be or not, he is Lord of the Manor and has a responsibility to the land and the people to govern fairly. That means ''everyone'', including Goblins.
