* While out of character for her, Angua's meeting with "Albert Spangler" in the TV special is plenty funny.
--> Angua: (washer rolling past Moist/Spangler's face.)"Albert Spangler?"
--> Moist: "Never heard of him. (Takes a look at Angua.) But for you, I could be anyone."
--> Angua: "Could you be lunch?" *Growl!* (Starts transforming.)
--> Moist: (Oh Crap face) "How was I to know that the City Watch's finest Sargent was a werewolf?"
--> Angua: (In wolf form.) *Growl!* (Lunging at the camera!)\\

Added DiffLines:

* The footnote, after Crispin Horsefry's introduction, on the nature of first impressions.
* "May I take your conthpicously large hooded cloak, thir?"

Added DiffLines:

* Moist pulling the old classic of digging away the mortar around the bricks in his cell with a spoon... only to discover that there's ''another'' brick behind that one, with a fresh spoon. Apparently, Vetinari sets it up that way so that the prisoners will have exercise, something to distract them from moping, occupational therapy, and Hope.
* Later, Moist asks his executioner whether the man really believes that the death penalty deters crime. He answers that it's hard to tell in general, because it's pretty difficult to count the number of crimes not committed, but on the other hand, he's never seen any criminal up there more than once.
* Moist seeing a messenger from Vetinari hurrying towards him, and hoping desperately that it'll be a stay of execution... and then it turns out that the messenger's telling him to hurry up, they're running late.

Added DiffLines:

* Moist just continually being CrazyAwesome, and basically making it his job description.
* In a BlackComedy way, it turns out that Gilt ''really'' believes in freedom of choice...but not in angels.
