* Lieutenant Challoner leads a BoardingParty to capture one of the Inca dragons. It turns out later that the dragon took a [[DefeatMeansFriendship liking to her]] and wants to [[ThisIsMyHuman keep her]]. Since the Inca dragon is willing to sign up with the Aerial Corp everyone apparently decided to roll with it and appointed Challoner as the dragon's captain.

* Laurence is lost during a bad storm, and washes ashore Japan with amnesia. He doesn't remember anything of his time with Temeraire, or being an aviator. This of course leads to hilarity. Upon Temeraire finally finding him this exchange takes place.

* Temeraire invites Lung Qin Mei to attend dinner with him and the other dragons - partly because he wants to see her, but also because he's been asked to sire a new Celestial companion for the Crown Prince. However, things go from bad to worse; first Iskierka jealous at her own egg with Temeraire being passed over insults Mei and leaves, next Temeraire becomes humiliated by the lack of manners of his companions, who abruptly leave so that Temeraire can arrange affairs with Mei. Finally, once they've left, Mei reveals she's been learning English to talk with him, and as such, understood everything that was said during the dinner. Becomes a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming shortly afterwards though, as the two are more happy to see each other than anything else.

* During an argument concerning the possibility of marriage, Lawrence finally nerves himself up enough to ask if Emily Roland is [[IsThatCuteKidYours his daughter]] (with the non-so-subtle implication that he must wed her mother). Temeraire promptly reassures him that she is not, pointing out quite logically that he did not start sleeping with Jane Roland until Emily was in her eleventh year and it simply did not work that way.

* No one was ready for Ning, Temeraire's and Iskierka's offspring, as not only does she have a combination of Temeraire's divine wind and Iskierka's fire (but in the form of a white bolt that explodes on contact), but she seems to have a combination of her progenitors' personalities. Laurence is almost sorry to foist her onto Prince Mianning ''should she choose him''.
* The entire episode of Laurence's "discreet" countryside recovery after a duel gone awry. There is nothing like the sight of men of all ages trying to win a young maiden's hand (through her mother's critical approval), going so far as to spark a clan war of sorts between Churki and Temeraire over whose human was more deserving of a wife--much to Laurence's and Hammond's disdain.

** Recall that many in the Corps can be born, grow up, and die without EVER being considered for their own dragon. Seeing Granby's carefully constructed dream fall apart in the face of Iskierka is delicious, delicious schadenfreude.

* When everyone is departing to leave Temeraire and Mei to their "business", Temeraire delivers this gem of a line to Lily:
-->'''Temeraire''': Lily, do keep a lookout for Laurence, will you not? Pray do not let him wander off, or be assassinated; or lose any more of his memory.
