Added DiffLines:

* Hollis Mason does some horrifically hilarious TemptingFate as he talks with Manhattan about retiring to be an auto-mechanic, quipping that he's still got enough time before Manhattan changes the landscape of automobiles. Manhattan then ''immediately'' responds with his plans to introduce electric cars, a technological leap that would catastrophically put people like Hollis out of work as a result. Whoops.


* "Excuse me. Have to visit Men's Room." "Oh for Christ's sake!" What's going on in there is probably horrifying, but Laurie and Dan's reactions are priceless.

** Add to the funny the stealth pun, as Rorschach went in to the "little men's room" to find [[DepravedDwarf Big Figure]].

Added DiffLines:

* Things from his sessions with Rorschach that disturbed Malcolm Long: Rorschach bluntly telling him that he doesn't like him, the rape and murder of Kitty Genovese, his murder of a child kidnapper and his dogs, [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking and the fact that Rorschach has friends]].

Added DiffLines:

* In the midst of the destroyed New York, surrounded by hundreds if not thousands of the corpses of New Yorkers as a giant tentacle alien monster looms over them, Doctor Manhattan displays [[NotSoStoic disturbed confusion]]...[[SkewedPriorities that he and Laurie showed up in New York at midnight November 2nd when he projected that they'd arrive earlier]].

** Mook #2 is armed with an electric saw, but is easily dispatched by Rorschach slamming him into the toilet and breaking the bowl, allowing water to flow out. Rorschach casually climbs onto the bed, and within seconds the resulting puddle finds a frayed part of the wire and electrocutes the mook to death. It's interesting enough to him that he muses on it with the following remark:

* The fact that Alan Moore ''loved'' [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YDDHHrt6l4w Saturday Morning Watchmen.]][[spoiler:Ozymandias]] demonstrating AffablyEvil at its finest. When Rorschach tries to jump him from behind while he's sitting at his dinner table, he pins his sleeve to it with a fork and decks him while chiding him about his lack of manners. Then he uses a lid to deflect Nite Owl's beam weapon before throwing it at his face, breaking his nose, and finally calmly asks the two beaten heroes what he can do for them.

-->'''Dan''': Well, he tried it on Rorschach, and he dropped him down an elevator shaft.
-->'''Laurie''': (laughing) That is ''not'' funny!
-->'''Dan''': (also laughing) It's a little funny.

Added DiffLines:

* The page image; as the detectives investigating Blake's murder get into the building's elevator and prepare to head down to the ground floor, one of them saying "Ground floor comin' up.", we get a panel of Blake being thrown through the window of his penthouse apartment.

It's a LeaningOnTheFourthWall-style recap, but you can practically hear Alan Moore thinking as he typed this, "For you idiots who didn't bother to read the last damn issue, here's what happened."
