* The scene with everyone trying to get a reward for the dog. No, it's a cow. It's a badger. (He's been ill!) It's a parrot! You've trained it to bark and you've painted "Dog" on it but it's still a parrot! Some complete ''[[UnusualEuphemism muffin]]'' offered a reward! In Ankh-Morpork! Do you know what I've been dealing with all day? There's ''ferrets'' out there!

** And later suggests that Vetinari has gone mad because he's been talking about making lobsters fly. After Vimes and Carrot discuss how Vetinari's possible replacement "wants a return to the values and traditions that made the city great", Vimes says he'd "rather take a chance on the lobsters".

* The mayor of Quirm got hit by a meteor [[NoodleIncident again]] -- funny enough. [[EnmityWithAnObject That it was waiting for him in an alleyway]] is even funnier, but the fact that there is such a thing as a Department of Vindictive Astronomy at the Unseen University takes the cake.

* A small but hilarious one: the only Guilds that refuse to vote to impeach Vetinari are the four run by women (specifically the Beggars, the Seamstresses, the Launderers and the Exotic Dancers), prompting William to observe, very dryly, that the man must have led a very interesting life.

* Vetinari, trying to make a point about the industriousness of the city, asks the man he's talking to to look outside. Unfortunately, that man is one of the famously LiteralMinded Ridcully brothers, who answers "Fog." Later, Hughnon gets stuck on Vetinari's metaphor about c-commerce and sending prawns by clacks.

* Vetinari, ''clearly'' remembering the events from ''Sourcery,'' ''Moving Pictures,'', ''Soul Music'', and the NoodleIncident involving Mr. Hong's Three Jolly Luck Take-Away Fish Shop, attempts to determine whether allowing the printing press in the city is going to bring on another EldritchAbomination crisis. It's nice to see that even Vetinari is WrongGenreSavvy once in a great while:
