* The maneuver which gives Joshua Calvert his nickname. The FTL drive doesn't work in a gravity field of any significant strength, so he [[spoiler: plunges headlong towards the Lagrange-1 point between the planet and its moon where the pull of the two negate each other.]]
* Laton, the BigBad of the galaxy , gets one when he lectures his possessor on his failed logic and stupidity, right before he [[StuffBlowingUp blows up an entire bitek island]] and its possessed population, to stop them from spreading.
* Calvert gets a new one in the second book, when he [[spoiler: detonates the Neutronium Alchemist device, turning a Jovian planet into a small star, and destroying Al Capone's ships that were following him]]. He even gets a one-liner for it:
--> "No good! You can't [[TitleDrop dysfunction]] ''[[TitleDrop this]]'' [[TitleDrop chunk of reality]], pal!"
* Dexter gets a small awesome one-liner at one point:
--> '''Satanist Mook:''' The whole ''Universe'' will bow before you, Quinn!
--> '''Quinn Dexter:''' Yeah... the fuckers ''just might''!
