* Suian creates a distraction in the kitchen to discreetly speak with Egwene and Nynaeve and starts it by claiming Elayne was using far-too foul language for a lady of her stature so Laras drags her (and Egwene for speaking out of turn) out by the ear. We learn at the end of the chapter that she washed their mouths out with soap.

* Elayne initially tries asking Mat to carry the letter to her mother by appealing to his patriotism as an Andorman. He has to stifle a laugh and that gives her her answer in a way she didn't expect.

** Which is what he's wearing when he first meets Tuon, which probably does him no favors in terms of first impressions.
** And the fact that his dice stop when he walks into the room where she's meeting with Tylin. He spends the rest of the scene quietly freaking out and expecting "a Forsaken to jump out of the fireplace," not knowing that (A) they've stopped because he's just met his future wife, and (B) [[spoiler:there ''is'' a Forsaken in the room, hidden in plain sight under the guise of "Anath."]]
** And his FakeOutMakeOut with Joline, to keep her from being seen and recognized as an Aes Sedai. Particularly when [[JerkassWoobie a small whimper of fear]] slips out and gets mistaken for...something else.

* In the aftermath of [[spoiler:the battle of Cairhien]], Egwene gets pulled out of bed to sit in on a council of the Wise Ones. While she's still half-awake and trying to figure out what's going on, Aviendha [[{{Troll}} does something a little bit mean]].
-->''I called to her that she would have to [[TrainingFromHell dig holes in the ground with her teeth]] this time if she had been caught in a misdeed, and she was so sleepy she believed me. She began protesting that she would not, so hard that [[NeverMessWithGranny Sorilea]] began demanding what she had done to think she deserved to.''

'''Nynaeve:''' Forgive her, my Lord Captain. My eldest sisterís girl. She thinks she should have been born a lady, and she canít keep away from the boys besides.

** On the advice of Mistress al'Vere, [[{{Tsundere}} Faile]] tries ''very hard'' to diplomatically convince Perrin not to go off hunting Trollocs until he's healed up a little. Her idea of "diplomatic" involves a lot of TermsOfEndangerment, delivered with TechnicallyASmile. Perrin [[CaptainObvious finds this unsettling]], since it's pretty clear she'd rather slap him until his ears rang.

episode. Particularly when she stumbles up to the room she's sharing with Nynaeve--who is not over-pleased with her condition and [[BlatantLies wants to show her something important]], over here in [[GetAholdOfYourselfMan this bucket of water]]...
** Her conversation with Thom, a little bit earlier, is mostly [[TearJerker/TheWheelOfTime sad]] or [[Heartwarming/TheWheelOfTime sweet]], but when she recalls how [[ParentalSubstitute she used to sit in his lap]] when she was very little--and how [[spoiler:[[ParentalSexualitySquick Morgase used to sit in his lap]] back then, too]]--it's a little funny to see the penny drop.

** To be fair, what with Leane saying flat out that she thought he was cute, Perrin could be excused for assuming that decorum had gone out the window for the time being.



* When we first meet [[BaseBreakingCharacter Faile]], she has decided to call herself Mandarb ("blade"), considering it more suitable for Hunting the Horn of Valere than the extremely girly name she grew up with. Perrin happily informs her that this is the name of Lan's horse.
* When Perrin, Moiraine, et al. are arranging a place to stay in Illian, they step inside one inn where a girl is singing ([[TakeOurWordForIt what we understand to be]]) a rather BawdySong. The first verse is tame, but apparently things escalate.
--> ''[Perrin] had never heard of any woman doing anything remotely like what the girl was singing about, but it did sound interesting.''
** Then, after [[DoomMagnet things hit the fan]] and Moiraine is outed as an Aes Sedai, the girl is mortified and apologizes for her choice of songs. Moiraine brushes it off by, essentially, implying she's been around the block a few times herself.
** This scene gets even funnier in retrospect, since Perrin hears the song while standing next to his future wife[[note]] who notices [[LuminescentBlush his reaction]] and teasingly asks if he is perhaps a little bit sheltered[[/note]].




to:

* Mat is standing outside the Stone of Tear, and needs to be inside it. He decides to create a diversion by stuffing a bundle of fireworks, [[ItMakesSenseInContext which he just so happens to have]], into an arrowslit and lighting them off. He manages (barely) to OutrunTheFireball, then realizes that the explosion has made the arrowslit big enough to climb through. So he does. [[DidntThinkThisThrough And immediately runs into a bunch of Defenders coming to investigate all the noise.]]



-->''He should have suspected something from the wide smiles that had bloomed on their faces. Like cats who had been asked to dance by a mouse.''



* Poor Perrin comes back to Emond's Field to help protect them from trollocs, and accidentally ends up as general/lord of the village, with his elders asking him permission for every little thing, and two men following behind him at all times with a wolf's head banner (made for him by Verin). His irritated internal monologue can be hilarious.

* There's also the part, after Min, Aviendha and Elayne bonding Rand, that Elayne decides that she's going to jump Rand's bones. This leads Brigitte, Min and Aviendha to decide that they need to get very drunk, very quickly as they can feel everything that's going on with Elayne and Rand.

*** Also, Mat feigning half-literacy for Elayne and Brigitte's benefit. He was trying to write so they would have no doubts, which can be interpreted as Mat just playing up the illiterate sheepherder stereotype.

* "Isam's" summaries of the first ten books. An affectionate, but absolutely merciless parody that amounts to [[TheAbridgedSeries ''The Wheel of Time'' Abridged]]. (Sadly, they've become difficult to find, but [[https://plus.google.com/112284235139608203017/posts/g5iZkpdcTAw here]] is the summary for ''The Dragon Reborn''.)
** On a related note, [[https://stuff.mit.edu/afs/sipb/project/wine/dosdevices/z:/mit/foley/Public/wot.ending How to Wrap Up ''The Wheel of Time'']]. (WallOfText ahoy, but it is worth the read.) Judging by the date (Feb. 2001), this was written after ''Winter's Heart'', but it's HilariousInHindsight considering everything Sanderson did to pick up the pace of the last few books.

** In fact, that whole conversation was hilarious. Both Gawyn and Min are trolling each other, but Galad is totally clueless about the circumstances, and holds the whole conversation with absolute sincerity.
