YMMV: The Truth
  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment: At one point, Mr. Pin thinks about how Mr. Tulip mainlines bath salts. This is simply part of the joke about Tulip snorting everything he can find. Thirteen years later, the mention of bath salts has its own special meaning.
  • Magnificent Bastard: In addition to Vetinari, who's always one, William shows signs of becoming one, particularly in any scene where he has to deal with threats to the press, such as his handling of Slant.
  • Nightmare Fuel: The book describes images resulting from dark light photography in very vivid detail. Then near the end, where one of photos comes true...
  • Older Than They Think: The "——ing" joke first showed up in Mort.
    • An in Sourcery, one of the senior wizards had studied languages for so long he can pronounce parentheses (pretty cool, huh?).
    • Then again in Men at Arms: "D*mn," said Carrot, a difficult linguistic feat.
