* There's a brief moment where the Farseer running the complex orders a Webway gate to be closed. His guard tells him they are in the process of doing so, and it will be closed very soon. The Farseer then [[LampshadeHanging points out]] that 'very soon' for the [[WeAreAsMayflies long-lived Aeldari]] would probably give the humans more than enough time to get inside, and the guard almost sheepishly says they will try to move faster.


* In the opening scene of a short story ''Of Their Lives in the Ruins of Their Cities'', Trooper Caffran watched newly-appointed Ibram Gaunt who was working on what Caffran assumed tactical orders with fascination. Cut to the commissar;

* In the midst of an otherwise tense battle, Rawne leads his platoon into an Aeldari fortress, a psychic storm making them think they're defending a castle back on Tanith. He cheerfully offers his help to the lead Aspect Warrior, believing him to be a human colonel, while the Eldar is bewildered but accepts them into the battle. The following scene of Rawne chatting with an increasingly uncomfortable Aeldari is hilarious, especially with the psychic effects making him see nothing wrong with the "colonel" calling him "Rawne-Human".

* In the short story ''In Remembrance,'' after the liberation of Vervunhive by the Tanith, Surgeon Curth saw Dorden refusing to rest and over-working himself tending the wounded, so she spiked his drinking water with sleeping drug, telling Corbec not to report the incident to Gaunt. [[ActuallyPrettyFunny Even Corbec sniggered.]]
* Shortly after [[DeadpanSnarker Feygor]] gets an augmentic voice box that makes everything he says sound sarcastic, someone suggests that from now on he should raise a hand to let people know whenever he's actually being sarcastic. Feygor's response:
-->'''Feygor''': "Oh, that's a good idea." ({{beat}}) *Raises his hand*

* In "Sabbat Martyr" Rawne, Banda and Feygor are arguing whether or not Saint Sabbat is staring at them in particular, Banda says it has to be Rawne because:
--> "The major's sex on legs, real catnip for us womenfolk"
* "Sabbat Martyr" [[HospitalHottie Curth]] telling [[ColonelBadass Gaunt]] she'll only do him a favor because he's so good in bed. In front of the whole regiment.
** It backfires on her though as the regiment stares at her as if she's serious, making her retort that it was a joke irritatedly. Though that reaction alone is also hilarious, as everyone in earshot (which, as they're getting off their landers, is most of the regiment) immediately believes it. A few slack jaws and a couple dropped kitbags are mentioned.
** The joke goes sideways later on when Curth reveals to Gaunt in ''Salvation's Reach'' she'd been pining over him for years.
