* The whole of chapter 55, in which the Count has to spoon-feed Major Cavalcanti the entirety of the made-up story that's been concocted to provide Andrea with a noble background, all the while pretending that he is merely confirming the details of Cavalcanti's actual life story. And all the while the Major clearly has no idea of what he is talking about and has to bumble his way through the entire conversation with the bare-bones version he received from Abbe Bussoni.
** Just after that scene, the meeting between [[PaidForFamily Cavalcanti Jr. and Sr.]], where the narration really piles on the sarcasm, as [[BlatantLies the respectful son hugs his loving father]], both secure in the knowledge that they're going to be rich.
* Danglars' conversation with his wife, using a HurricaneOfEuphemisms to inform her that while he doesn't care that she's cheating on him with the minister's undersecretary, he ''does'' care that it's costing him money.
