** It's mentioned in passing that Susan has met the Tooth Fairy, the Soul Cake Duck, and Old Man Trouble. The Tooth Fairy encounter took place in ''Discworld/{{Hogfather}}'', and Old Man Trouble patronizes Biers like Susan does, but the Soul Cake Duck has yet to appear in any Discworld novel.

* TimeStandsStill: {{Deconstructed}} with slicing -- a small pocket of space around the slicer is still subject to the ordinary passage of time, so it is necessary to move around so that the air around you doesn't get used up and cause you to suffocate. Also, touching a fast-moving object like a crossbow bolt is a really bad idea.

** And then there's what happens if you master the basics and try to go for the high-level stuff. Going for the sweet spot at high slicing levels (where there's a valley in the energy required) and ''missing'' is '''not''' recommended. The guy who discovered the first valley ''theorised'' there existed another, even closer to the point at which no human would survive. It's still only a ''theory'' because, attempting to discover it, he imploded.

* ExactWords: Igor assures Jeremy's boss that he sees him pour out a spoonful of his medicine regularly. What he ''doesn't'' mention is that Jeremy then pours the spoonful of medicine down the sink instead of down his throat.

** This artficial beauty and the fact that she doesn't quite know how to handle a human body (not always submitting to gravity, having an empty facial expression most of the time, having no body smell at all) lead to Jeremy assuming at first she might be a zombie and to Igor [[UncannyValley feeling highly uncomfortable at her presence.]]
