* Catherine Harcourt reflects on the one time she suffered sexual harassment:
--> '''Harcourt:''' ...when I was sixteen... a dreadful fellow sat next to me and whispered impolite remarks until I poured a pot of coffee into his lap... he went away straight after.
--> '''Berkly:''' Christ above, Harcourt, if I ever have reason to offend you, I will make damned sure you have nothing hot at hand.
--> '''Harcourt:''' Well, I would have struck him, but I would have had to get up.

** when they are attacked by enemy dragons, Iskierka excitedly tries to attack them, delete being all of a few hours old. Temeraire has to physically carry her away to prevent her from fighting.

** 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.

rank; and notes that if, due to accident or ungovernable impulse, something terminal should ''hypothetically'' happen to Rankin... Lawrence has already been banished to a remote penal colony the better part of a year's travel from Britain.

* Upon being warned against offending Prince Yongxing or the Chinese embassy in general at the start of the voyage.
-->'''Temeraire''': ''<resentfully>'' "I do not care if they do not like me, maybe then they will let me alone, and I will not have to stay in China." ''<visibly perking up>'' "If I were very offensive, do you suppose they would go away now? Lawrence, what would be particularly insulting?"

to:

* In the midst of the final battle, we see British heavy cavalry charging toward an oddly hollow French infantry square. Then we see a comparatively small dragon landing ''in'' said square and the charge for some odd reason grind to a near halt save for one horse that slips in the mud and slides within reach.
-->''The Pou-de-Ciel leaned over and snatched the horse bodily off the ground with one clawed forehand, shook the rider unceremoniously off onto the ground, and with much enthusiasm opened it's jaws wide and took off the flailing horse's head with one bite; the French dragons had likely been on short commons for a while now.''

'''Temeraire''': "I am merely curious now, if that is all there is in Dover. For Roland is too young for whores, is she not?"\\

* Prince Yongxing's blunt [[CuttingTheKnot knot cutting]] when confronted with the reality that the Celestial he seeks to fetch home is not going anywhere without the common soldier he has grown attached to manages to lighten the mood of thrown ultimatums.
-->"Then plainly Captain Lawrence must come also; or will you now attempt to convince us that ''he'' cannot be sent?"
** When Temeraire received the following message from an exhausted, injured, and at least slightly loopy due to a head injury Lawrence shortly afterwards, he becomes understandably concerned.
---> ''Never fear; I am going; the Son of Heaven will not tolerate delays, and Barham gives me leave. Allegiance will carry us! Pray eat something.''



-->'''Hammond''': ''I will be sure to tell her, Captain Granby, that you have no interest in governance -- that you would not seek to interfere --?''\\
'''Granby''':''Yes, you may tell her [[HenpeckedHusband I will be a proper lap-dog, and let her have her own way in everything]], and not do anything but sit next to her and nod when she pokes me; and you may as well remind her if I ever care to do otherwise, I still shan't be able to, as I don't know ten words of the language yet and likely won't put a sentence together for a year to come.''

* 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 nine and it simply did not work that way.

* One of the convicts, O'Dea, might be a minor character but he's pessimism is always good for [[BlackHumor a laugh]]. Imagine a grizzled convict with a flair for the dramatic, which extends to his writing when Laurence makes him a scribe.
