-->'''Neagley:''' Is it OK to bring guns into a church?
-->'''Reacher:''' It's OK in Texas. Probably compulsory here.

* Towards the ending of ''Without Fail'', Reacher and Neagley are preparing for the story's final confrontation, and start their morning in a motel. (Bear in mind that these are two tough-as-nails military veterans.) First, Reacher overhears Neagley singing in the shower in the next room over. Then he goes to get a hot shower himself, which apparently makes Neagley's shower go cold, seeing as she screams suddenly when he turns the water on. He wisely turns the water back off and waits his turn, and neither of them mention a word of it afterward. The entire sequence is completely understated, but sticks wildly out of place in an otherwise deadly serious part of the story.

** When Alice and Reacher are looking at Carmen Greer's medical reports for evidence of domestic abuse, they start at the beginning. The narrative launches into a long, immaculately detailed paragraph about the circumstances and procedures of her daughter Ellie's birth, from gynecology to fetal monitors to times of day for the process of labor, all concluding that Carmen was born perfectly viable — and then it helpfully notes that the birth report did ''not'' mention facial bruising, or a split lip, or loosened teeth.

** About two-thirds of the way into the book, Reacher finally spends an evening with Alice. The narrative has been describing Alice in physically flattering terms ever since Reacher laid eyes on her, which is the standard for [[GirlOfTheWeek girls he's attracted to]]. And then she invites him over for dinner. Only once Reacher is over there does he discover that [[IncompatibleOrientation Alice wasn't planning on much]]. The whole exchange is a brilliant back-and-forth, but then it ends on this note:
--> "So it doesn't bother you?" she said. "That it's just a meal with a new friend and then back to the hotel on your own?"
--> "I never thought it would be anything else," Reacher lied.

* In ''Tripwire'', Reacher has just returned to New York from the Florida Keys, investigating a detective who'd come looking for him. The most sensible thing to do, he reasons, is to check the yellow pages, but he doesn't have a very convenient start.
--> But the yellow pages showed no private investigators called Costello. Plenty of private Costellos in the white pages, but no professional listings under that name. Reacher sighed. He was disappointed, but not surprised. It would have been too good to be true to open up the book and see Costello Investigations—We Specialize in Finding Ex-[=MPs=] Down in the Keys.
** Later, Reacher gets taken clothes shopping. As it happens, he's not very versed in clothes shopping.
-->'''Reacher:''' There was a place I went in Chicago. I think it was a chain store, short little name. Hole? Gap? Something like that. They had the right sizes."
