* The talk with the dying Windle about why it is important to be needed by others and how it resonates in the final scene where he spares the Death of Rats (and the Death of Fleas) rather to be alone.

*** One more, when she [[spoiler: dies at the end. She becomes 18 again, the age she was when her fiancee died. She didn't REALLY move on, just refused to mope about it. But she waited for him, until the very end.]]

* There's a scene which prety much summarises Miss Flitworth's personality, in which she talks about how after her fiancé died she was expected to spend all her time moping around in a decrepit wedding dress weeping, but instead she got on with her life. At the end of the book Death opens Miss Flitworth's chests that no-one has ever seen inside and finds [[spoiler:it contains her old wedding dress; she still thinks about her fiancé]].

** That she [[spoiler: offers the fine material of the dress as a whetstone for Death's replacement scythe]] in the same scene has so many different perspectives of meaning packed into it that I find a new one, usually another TearJerker, every time I read it. It only makes it worse that it ''barely helps'', as little more than a stepping stone to the next, perfectly common thing they try.
