Awesome / Carpe Jugulum

  • Perhaps Granny Weatherwax's finest moment: with a feedback effect — "I ain't been vampired: you've been Weatherwaxed."
    • Also doubles as Nanny Ogg's finest moment. She's the one who gave Esme the idea, with the comment about Weatherwaxes never being beaten - because it's "in the blood". Depending on your interpretation of Nanny Ogg's character, of course.
  • Mightily Oats deciding to make a holy symbol of his axe.
    "An axe isn't a holy symbol, you stupid man."
    "Oh. Then let's make it one."
    • Another possibility is that he has realized that everything is holy, as long as you recognize it as such, and believe in it. In the same way the vampires realized that the holy symbols they'd taught themselves in order to guard against them could be seen in everything if they looked hard enough, because it was just a recognition of a pattern. It wasn't the symbol that made it powerful, it was the power of belief that symbol received.
    • Alternately, Om was watching, and thought that it would make a terrific holy symbol.
    • The Double Headed Axe of the Ionians makes an appearance as a holy symbol back in Reaper Man, which raises the question of why the Magpyrs don't recognise it. I guess the Glass Clock really did a number on the theology...
  • When Magrat makes Nanny Ogg shocked with an innuendo.
  • Perdita's Groin Attack on Vlad.
  • The people of Escrow rebelling against the vampires that had held them all prisoner, particularly the mayor strangling the Count with a gold chain. It turns out later that the mayor was killed for his defiance—the Count basically snapped him in half without even trying—but striking against the monster who'd victimized you and the people you lead is one hell of a way to go. The fact that the Count was shaken by the experience makes it all the better. There's a line describing him touching a weal across his throat from the chain, astonished that a mere human could have been so strong...
  • The Old Count's revivification reveals a Fair Play Villain... who is also a Friendly Enemy, a fan of Contractual Genre Blindness and the Good Old Ways - and a villain who understands that Tropes Are Not Bad. Granny can't be having with vampyres, but this vampire is Not So Different from herself.
  • The greatest Ship Sinking since "Frankly, my dear, I just don't give a damn" comes from Agnes: 'Vlad... I'd even hold their coats.'
