* Anything with the darkings in Trickster's Queen. Especially when they tell Aly what's going on at the palace when Imajane thinks Rubinyan is cheating on her.
--->'''Trick:''' She has nothing left to throw unless she picks up chair. ...[[OhCrap Uh oh]]. \\
'''Secret:''' [[DontExplainTheJoke She picked up chair]].
** Aly's attempt to spy on Dunevon with one is foiled because Dunevon finds it and is caught jumping up and down on his bed with it.
* This Quote from [[BoisterousBruiser Raoul]]
-->Raoul: When people tell me a knight's job is all glory, I just laugh and laugh and laugh. Usually I can stop laughing before people start backing away talking about soothing drinks.
* Alanna's first meeting with Ralon of Malven is this, particularly her comeback to him when he asks her to bow and scrape for him:
-->'''Alanna''': I'd sooner kiss a pig! A dirty, ''smelly'' pig! Is that what you've been doing, kissing pigs? Or ''being'' kissed?
* Kel's exchange with Wyldon after a bout of jousting and he says he wished she were a boy.
-->'''Kel''': Being a girl is more fun. More funner? Is that right?
-->'''Wyldon''': Lie down, Mindelan, you're tilt silly.
* Kel sparring with Queen Thayet, and getting dumped on her arse because she's too busy being overawed by Her Royal Majesty to conduct a proper defense. She fixes ''that'' in a hurry!
* The reveal that Kel thought the clothes stand in her bathroom was a hurdle that had been misplaced, which she didn't say anything about for a whole year.
* Daine's list of complaints to the Badger during ''Wolf Speaker''. She's hungry, she's tired, she's cold, everything is going wrong-
-->'''Daine''':... and I have Squirrel feet!
* Prince Bronau's absurd PurpleProse laden dialogue as he courts Sarai. If the book hadn't come out two years earlier, you'd swear it was meant as a parody of ''{{Twilight}}''.
** And Cleon's parodying of such language in his "wooing" of Kel.
-->'''Cleon''': Your teeth call to mind wolfhounds romping in the snow!
-->'''Kel''': Wolfhounds are furry. I hope my teeth aren't.
