* Happens at least twice in Literature/TheDresdenFiles. In the short story ''Last Call,'' Murphey knocks some delicate geodes off a shelf while Harry questions the shop owner. (She gleefully declares herself "the good cop.") In the novel ''Small Favor,'' Harry is trying to get past an administrative assistant who is insisting that her boss is out of the building. He asks his vampire half-brother, Thomas, to "give her a visual." Thomas promptly twists a pair of heavy barbells together, while Harry details what ''else'' he can break.
