* At one point, the Queen demonstrates to Granny the illusion she's going to use to fight Magrat: An infinitely more beautiful version of Magrat, the kind of person she always wished she could be. That's NightmareFuel on its own, but the heartwarming part is that Granny notes she got the illusion from ''Verence''. It's how he sees Magrat.

* It turns out the reason Verence had the entire wedding arranged without Magrat knowing before she was back to Lancre was because Granny had sent a letter well in advance. It contained advice telling Verence that if he wished to marry Magrat, he should just get on with it and not propose or wait for her to suggest it, because, quote, "there is no one like Magrat for getting in the way of her own life".

Added DiffLines:

** Casanunda arranges for a RomanticCandlelitDinner. Nanny eagerly and messily chows down lobster and caviar and all that fancy stuff, chugs wine and kicks out the serenading violinist so she can instead belt out drinking songs. One would think this would be a complete MoodKiller, but Casanunda is ''utterly charmed'' watching her enjoy herself so much.

Yet, despite the generally apathetic nature of the Disc's JerkassGods and the fact that he is acutely aware that he stands no chance in a fight against a bunch of elves (who are faster, stronger, and far meaner), clearly being scared witless of them, he attacks one head on to protect an ants nest and a bunch of baby rabbits by drawing their attention.
