Added DiffLines:

* Chapter 6 is also, mostly, a lighter chapter.
** When the subject of Doctor Strange is brought up to the not-entirely clued in Grey family...
-->'''Elaine Grey''': [[ShoutOut Doctor]] [[Series/DoctorWho who?]]
--> Harry felt that he deserved a medal for maintaining his poker face.
** Harry ComicallyMissingThePoint after the subject of the mysterious telepath who ensured that he remained at Privet Drive comes up.
-->'''Harry''': He probably hasn't bothered her [Jean] because of Professor Xavier. Now? Whoever he is, Jean would probably send him running. [[SlasherSmile And me?]] I honestly hope he tries.
-->'''Elaine''': Well, I hope he doesn't.
-->'''Harry''': I've gone mind to mind with worse and won.
-->'''Jean''': That wasn't what mom meant, Harry. *telepathic interlude wherein she explains that her mother was worried about him*
-->'''Harry''': Oh. Uh, sorry about that, Mrs Grey. My temper got the better of me.
** Harry and Jean bantering in general, and her messing with his hair.
** Tony and Alison 'Aunt Ali' Carter's interactions are priceless, especially since Tony seems to regress to a sulky teenager.
-->'''Tony''': You're looking pretty good yourself, Aunt Ali. So good that people are going to stop believing you about your age. I'm telling you, these days SHIELD have masks that can imitate faces perfectly and anything they can do, I can do better.
-->'''Alison''': Tony.
-->'''Tony''': It'll save you so much time in the mornings.
-->'''Alison''': You know that I don't like the idea of going out with my face behind a mask. Besides, the face isn't the only place that shows ageing.
-->'''Tony''': [[DoubleEntendre I so don't want to know.]]
-->'''Alison''': *eyeroll* You're worse than your father.
-->'''Tony''': I know. My back-up plan if the Arc reactor I've worked in to the Mansion's power systems ever fails is to power everything through the rotary motion of dad spinning in his grave.
** And when Tony expresses surprise that she knows that [[spoiler: Steve is her dad]], her response is very dry.
-->'''Alison''': Darling, I can [[spoiler: comfortably bench press any of those fancy sports cars you own, I've never been ill, I haven't aged since my late twenties, I was born in 1945, my 'sister' was twenty five years older than me and most famous, unfortunately, for being Captain America's lost love - and speaking of whom, I happen to look rather a lot like him.]] It really wasn't that difficult to figure out. In any case, mum told me when I was eight.
** And a little later...
-->'''Alison''': I have my sources.
-->'''Tony''': You're supposed to be retired.
-->'''Alison''': The main reason I retired was my age. Specifically, how I wasn't showing it.

-->'''Alison''': But that's quite enough talking shop. You, Anthony Edward Stark, have a baby to introduce to me.
-->'''Tony''': Why did you have to [[FullNameUltimatum full name me?]]
-->'''Alison''': Because it's a reliable method of making you pay attention, one of very few, and even fewer that I care to use. Now, chop-chop.

* Chapter 3 starts off with the twins bickering about which of them is more attractive; Carol's attempt to stop them by pointing out they're identical doesn't work and she quickly gives up and just watches them do their thing.

* Chapter 3 starts off with the twins bickering about which of them is more attractive; Carol's attempt to stop them by pointing out they're identical and both sort of hot doesn't work and she quickly gives up and just watches winds up with them do jokily flirting with her, leading to threats to strangle them with their thing.own intestines.
* Chapter 5 is a lighter one, with several moments:
** Carol and Jean-Paul.
-->'''Carol''': Huh. You learn something new every day.
-->'''Jean-Paul''': We are in a museum, Carol. That is to be expected.
** This segues into Jean-Paul being called an asshole, Jean-Paul claiming that his arse is magnificent and citing Uhtred's 'worship' to prove it and Harry stating that contrary to Jean-Paul's belief, Uhtred is not the Norse God of Arse Appreciation.
** When Harry asks what a Slurpie is, Carol explains it as "Part of American Culture 101", then grabs his arm and tells him to follow her. Harry's response is golden.
--> I kind of have to. I'm rather attached to my arm and I like to think that it's rather attached to me.
** Harry and Carol's banter.
-->'''Harry''': You know, sometimes I wish I was normal.
-->'''Carol''': Take it from me, Harry, normality is over-rated.
-->'''Harry''': *smirks* Since when were you normal?
-->'''Carol''': Someone, somewhere, once made the horrible mistake of telling you that you were funny. I don't know who they are, but right now, I'd like to know, just so I have someone to blame.
** Clint's remark is pretty good too.
-->'''Clint''': Try Tony. Most things are his fault, so it's a safe bet.
** And when Carol and Harry get into an awkward conversation, Jean-Paul finds it vastly entertaining and actually zips off to [[PassThePopcorn grab some popcorn.]]

** Graham, on the other hand, may still be alive. No one's quite sure because Fred and George practise their hover charms on him, and he went straight up. And didn't come back down again.

Added DiffLines:

* [[spoiler: The Soldier's]] snarky remark to Ivan about the quality of the Red Room Agents.
--> Incompetent. Standards are falling everywhere.
* In chapter 66, during the Pensive Incident, Sean banters with [[spoiler: Lily Potter]], who reads his thoughts: namely, that he had the same odds of stopping her as becoming the world's first mutant pope.
-->[[spoiler: '''Lily''']]: ''That could probably be arranged.''
-->'''Sean''': I'll pass if ye don' mind. Th' frocks itch somethin' terrible.

--> Parties like thes, or so Harry had found, we're like piles of autumn leaves - very pretty, ever changing, and there were probably snakes at the bottom. If thus had been put to Harry, he would have quite reasonably said that he could talk to snakes, but there us such a thing as taking the metaphor too far.
