** Also, one of the few items Forthill does have in his room is a King James Bible. As Catholics don't use that version of the Good Book, it must have been a gift from a good Protestant friend, in the spirit of their mutual Christian faith. Whom do we know of who was a Protestant (Baptist) and a very close associate of Forthill's for many years? ''Shiro.''

** More specifically, at the end after [[spoiler: Mort rescues the day]], Murphy breaks down in tears. Its heartbreaking.

*** The way Mort tries to both comfort Murph and spare her pride by simply blocking everyone else's view of her breakdown is deservedly on this book's CMoH page, but Harry's thoughts in response to seeing it belong here; "Damn. I wished I'd been bright enough to see what kind of guy Morty was while I was still alive." Harry's had plenty to regret over the course of this book, but while the others were major disasters that were the result of hasty decisions in impossible situations, this minor one is somehow much more personal. Unlike the other decisions, Harry's misjudgement and poor treatment of Mort was caused purely by his disdain for a practitioner who (in his judgement,) was not using his gifts properly, and now Harry, in what may be his last moments interacting with the mortal world, realises he made yet another mistake which he'll never get a chance to set right. The fact that this is the sort of minor, everyday sort of mistake that ''could'' be fixed with something as simple as an apology, and now he can't even do that, makes that line all the more poignant.
