Ginger trick:
  • n-nose?!? This troper thought that, after the explanation of 'feagueing an old screw', that the bottle went up the Fourth point of Contact. Which would be easier to fit a bottle into, and cause a three-fold distress from gas pressure, spicyness, and shame.

One of the quotes needs to be moved to the quote page. Personally, I'm not a huge fan of either, though I prefer the second quote of Arc Words, to the first, which describes the themes of the book, but not the story. I also think that the following would work well:

He wanted to go home. He wanted it so much that he trembled at the thought. But if the price of that was selling good men to the night, if the price was filling those graves, if the price was not fighting with every trick he knew....Then it was too high. History finds a way? Well, it would have to come up with something good, because it was up against Sam Vimes now.

The first isn't about the story and the second doesn't make sense on its own, yes. That suggestion is very good.

Has anyone else thought that Carcer basically equals The Joker?

To me, The Joker is one part Carcer plus one part Teatime.

Hey! Links to this go to a novel by Sergey Lukyanenko! Watch: Night Watch.

That's why it's in the Discworld namespace. If you see links to Night Watch that are meant for this page, just change them.

Yeah, the YMMV page is also linking to the novel by Sergey Lukyaneko. I'd fix it, but I don't know how...

Mike Rosoft:Removed non-example/natter from:
  • Retcon
    • Also, we're given to understand that "[Vimes had] killed werewolves with his bare hands," whereas Wolfgang in The Fifth Elephant claims that they survived, because he wasn't using either fire or silver.
      • Of course, it could be hyperbole, or just still count as killing them whether or not they'll stay dead. He certainly felt skulls give way under his hands, and back in Men at Arms Angua apparently died after being shot by the Gonne, complete with heart stoppage and rigor mortis setting in on her (wolf-form) corpse, but she later revived under moonlight.
      • Most likely to be hyperbole - it's not meant to be taken literally. Vetinari is reeling off what people say about Vimes.
      • That was Thud. In Night Watch Vimes himself reflects he has done this, and in all fairness he did do so, it is just since they are counted as Undead merely killing them ordinarily does not work.
