* AndroclesLion: Rescuing Caliban from drowning in the marsh (which he wasn't even actually in danger of) is how Dan befriends the dog for life.

* AndroclesLion: Rescuing Caliban from drowning in the marsh (which he wasn't even actually in danger of) is how Dan befriends the dog for life. Played for irony later, when this loyalty is almost used by Johnny Lash and the other policemen to track him down in the West Marsh by following the innocently eager animal.

* SpannerInTheWorks: Lamie. If Dan hadn't gone to visit him (itself [[ContrivedCoincidence something which wouldn't have happened]] [[{{Irony}} if Dan's sunburn from being worked so hard by Billy Ben hadn't made him unable to sleep]]), and if he hadn't [[MrExposition known about both the existence of the witches' chamber]] (from Old Dan) and been a RearWindowWitness, Dan never would have learned where the briefcase was hidden, who the BigBad was, or that he should trust and confide in the twins to help end the feud.

* ThirdActMisunderstanding: After the fire on the point, when Dan finds out the twins are Bishops and believes they lied to him on purpose as part of the feud, their friendship is understandably shattered for a while. It turns out, however, that some of this was [[InvokedTrope orchestrated by]] [[spoiler:Billy Ben]], who deliberately lied to both sides [[GenreSavvy so as to keep them from joining forces]] and stopping him from finding the lost briefcase. And as soon as Dan and the twins realize this, as well as the identity of the thief and location of the witches' chamber, the misunderstanding is quickly dispensed with--at least for Pip and Dan; Gilly takes a bit longer to come around, thus leading to her TwinSwitch and distraction to make amends.

* ExactEavesdropping: When Pip comes to visit Dan following the fire to try and make amends, he immediately has to hide in the next room when Uncle Julian comes home. So naturally he gets an earful, hearing the whole story of Julian and Ann and what happened the night Old Dan died, [[BathroomStallOfOverheardInsults from Julian's skewed and prejudiced perspective]]. The result almost ends any chance for the twins to make up with Dan.

* DrivingQuestion: What happened to Old Dan and his lost briefcase?



** In-story: The skiff ''Jinx'' is this, named by Dan to remind himself of the way people view the Prides as a motivator to expose the Bishops as the real source of ruin and blame. Of course he comes to regret that name when it ends up being viewed by the firemen, Billy Ben, and Julian at exactly the wrong time, reminding them of his having heard the Fiddler.
