* At the end, there's a scene where Vimes confronts 71-hour-Ahmed, where Vimes gloats about how he saw right through a murder scene, which had been manipulated to make it seem like Klatchians had been responsible. Ahmed's response: "[[BatmanGambit Yes, you did.]]". The way Vimes just deflates as it sinks into him that the scene had been manipulated by Klatchians in order to trigger his Political Correctness the wrong way (or rather: the right way) is just funny in how crestfallen he is.

* Leonard's undoubted genius has one notable weakness: naming things. He designs (in his own words) a '''submersible marine''' vehicle... which he decides to then name the 'Going-Under-The-Water-Safely-Boat.'

(In Ankh-Morpork, there really ''is'' a difference between Assassins and those who 'just kill people for money'... at least, if you ask the Assassins about it anyway.)

** Especially when it comes across pretty subtly/ambiguously. When Vimes says, "In my opinion, no surgeons anywhere have cleaner sawdust on their floors than the ones in this city," it's mentioned that Vetinari coughs, which is ''possibly'' because he's trying not to laugh at Vimes' amazing zinger, or maybe he's just trying to redirect the conversation. It's always fun to pay attention to Vetinari's tendency to cough/look away/cover his mouth whenever Vimes gets off a clever line.

* That scene at the end, where in the middle of Vimes leading the parade again, an unlicensed theft occurs and he gives chase, leading to a bit of confusion as everyone else follows suit. The poor thief looks behind him to see half of Ankh-Morpork's upper class bearing down on him.

* [[TheComicallySerious Lord Vetinari]], dictator of Ankh-Morpork, juggling and shilling a game of guess-which-cup-the-egg-is-under. Later revealing that he actually never learned to juggle, and he always knows where the chicken is.

After running Ankh-Morpork with even a small measure of efficiency, what he's just pulled off is a cake-walk.

* It's mentioned that Lord Rust suffers from SelectiveObliviousness; if someone says something he doesn't like, he erases it from his mind. But when Unseen University's Dean reports that Leshp is gone, Rust finds himself unable to erase the Dean; There was too much of him.
