  • "It's like the whole world spins around your socks."

  • "A woman always has half an onion left over, no matter what the size of the onion, the dish, or the woman."

  • Commander Vimes relies on buzzard messages.

  • De Worde and Otto his photographer capture a pivotal truth.

  • Someone absconded with the coffee that keeps Maladict from wanting blood.

  • Undisguised girls, plus a thespian officer, disguised as washerwomen to retake the Keep

  • Commander Vimes and the buzzard manipulate events.

  • "You needed a lack of graphic imagination to talk about personal issues with an Igor."

  • The dead Duchess speaks through Wazzer.
