Added DiffLines:

* ColdBloodedTorture: Discussed. After Lewton finds out that the assassin Remora is stalking him, he consoles himself with the fact that Remora won't be allowed to kill him as he doesn't have a contract on Lewton. That said, there's nothing stopping him from locking Lewton up somewhere and torturing him for days, as long as he keeps him alive.

Added DiffLines:

** The von Uberwalds' butler refers to the manor as a "splendid Lorenzian building". As mentioned in the books, Lorenzo the Kind was the last King of Ankh-Morpork, executed by Stoneface Vimes.

* EvilSoundsDeep: Horst. Really bizarrely, [[HeyItsThatVoice when you realize]] he's one of several characters voiced by Robert [[Series/RedDwarf "Kryten"]] Llwellyn.

** If you examine the fountain in the Temple of Small Gods, Lewton says that until someone is found murdered in the fountain, it is of no interest to him. [[spoiler:While not a murder victim, Mooncalf's corpse ends up floating in the fountain after his death by SmiteMeOhMightySmiter]].

** The manual, when talking about the religions of Ankh-Morpork, mentions {{Eldritch Abomination}}s and their worshippers. This might seem like just a bit of worldbuilding (or a ShoutOut to Creator/HPLovecraft). [[spoiler:Then comes the CosmicHorrorReveal two-thirds in.]]

* ICantUseTheseThingsTogether: Lewton says "I resisted the temptation to say 'That doesn't work'". ''Noir'' specifically had the creators work as much as possible to avoid this aspect of the trope; practically every combination has a specific line describing it.
