* IronicEcho: Once William's got his hands on a recording of "A lie can run around the world before the truth has got its boots on," he replays it, slightly shorter each time until all it says is "the truth has got its boots on."

** When Goodmountain asks about the engraving proof William's carrying, William assumes that he, being a newcomer to the city, won't have heard of engraving and attempts to explain it, floundering his way to the description that it's "a sort of very nearly magical way of getting lots of copies of writing". Later, when William realizes that Goodmountain's printing press is a new innovation and asks what it is, Goodmountain quotes the description back at him.

** This gets even funnier several books later, when [[Discworld/GoingPostal Moist]] considers William "a pompous windbag with a bum stuffed full of tweed." He likes Sacharissa, though. Vimes himself has a rant in ''Discworld/{{Thud}}!'' about how the ''Times'' seems to know about goings-on in the Watch almost before ''he'' does.

* GoodIsNotSoft: Goodmountain mentions that the dwarfs occasionally have entire wars fought underground, where a common tactic is dropping tunnel roofs on each other to crush their enemies to death. When a horrified Sacharissa objects that she'd heard dwarfs were law-abiding, Goodmountain clarifies that they are - they're just not very merciful.
