Fridge: Reaper Man

Fridge Brilliance

  • Death's new name? Bill Door. In Eric, Eric and Rincewind decide that the bill is "what you get when there's nothing left and everything's been used up." What do you get when there's nothing left and everything's been used up? Death.
    • I should say that Bill DOOR is a rather obvious reference to Bill GATEs, but it might only be me...
    • Or perhaps "Bill Door" makes a pun on "Builder," which is the opposite of Death's usual job.
    • A door is a transition. Death is also a transition.
    • So his name here means "Final Transition"?
  • Death's scythe, the one he used against the New Death being more effective than the one he purposelly sharpened with anything to grindstone to silk to light makes sense. Light is a physical phenomenon; anger is an emotion.
  • The snow globes initially appear, of all places, in Dibbler's basement stockroom. They're actually the eggs of a living shopping mall. What other environment would they gravitate towards, if not that of Ankh-Morpork's greatest purveyor of the cheap, the over-hyped and the tacky?
  • Realizing that the intruder in the Temple is making it past all the traps, the two priests scream in terror that it's Mrs. Cake. Their terror is actually justified, because her precognition means that Mrs. Cake probably could walk right through all those death traps, unscathed.
