** Similarly, when Albrecht uses the same slur towards Cheery in Vimes's presence, the commander instantly makes it very clear that he will ''not'' tolerate that sort of treatment towards her, either.
* After two books of Angua insisting that Carrot would always choose Ankh-Morpork over her without a second thought, when push comes to shove and Angua does leave the city...Carrot immediately tries to resign and follows her. He loves her more than the city after all.

** Earlier in the novel, during a conversation in dwarfish no one can understand, he pulls the Piecemaker when he hears one of the dwarfs calling Cheery a gender-related slur and forces all of them to back down.

* Very subtle example: when Gaspode tells Carrot that hunters in the next town have caught a wolf, and Carrot (who's been searching for Angua) says: "''Killed it?''". Seems innocuous enough ... until you realize that it's the ''only'' time Carrot has ''ever'' raised his voice out of sheer, unbridled emotion, not just to make sure someone can hear him. If Angua'd heard ''that'', she'd have no more doubts about how he feels.

** For this troper, she had doubts about Vimes real feelings, especially when all she read was Thud (where his love of his son was the focus, not the wife), Guards Guards and Men at Arms, all where Vimes is rather distant towards Sybil. Then there's this book where he's still distant but obviously very, very in love. Just in his own grumpy way.

* This exchange between Detritus and Cheery:
'''Detritus:''' I never shook hands wid no king before. No dwarf, either, come to dat.\\

to:

* This King Rhys's honoring of Vimes, Detritus and Cheery is certainly a nice example, but it's topped by the exchange between Detritus and Cheery:
'''Detritus:'''
Cheery, that follows immediately afterwards:
-->'''Detritus:'''
I never shook hands wid no king before. No dwarf, either, come to dat.\\

* The scene in the embassy when Sam and Sybil are trying to sleep, and keep getting woken by Igor removing the animals, with them guessing the animal before going back to sleep. I found it very heartwarming when they both woke up, guessed "swordfish" at the same time, and then both went back to sleep. They're just so perfect for each other.

I found it very heartwarming when they both woke up, up to a 'thunk-AIEE-twawawang', guessed "swordfish" at the same time, and then both went back to sleep. They're just so perfect for each other.

* Igor gets one towards the end of the book. [[spoiler: After he's attacked by Wolfgang and near death Igor tells Vimes which parts of his body are still in good shape so that the other Igors can use them to help people, specifically mentioning an old woman who could use his hip. He dies once Vimes assures him he'll pass the message on.]] The Igors may squick some readers out but they're some of the most compassionate people on the Disc.

* Vetinari's soft spot for [[MoralityPet Vimes and the Watch]] is about as blatant here as it gets with him. During his meeting with Colon, despite the man acting like a blithering idiot the entire conversation, the only time Vetinari becomes visibly irritated is when Colon starts insulting Vimes. Later on, when the watchmen are all on strike, Vetinari orders cocoa and buns to be sent to them anonymously.
