“‘That bastard has just walked into the place!’ she hissed. ‘Reacher Gilt! I’ll just kill him and join you for the pudding …’ ‘You can’t do that!’ hissed Moist. ‘Oh? Why not?’ ‘You’re using the wrong knife! That’s for the fish! You’ll get into trouble!’”

So again this is more a question for the crowd…

So again this is more a question for the crowd mind (that's a thing, right) of your followers. In the Ankh Morpork Wiki (which is great, but says odd things about women or hair that makes one wonder if we've been reading the same books, but I digress) it says that Clerk Harold from Going Postal is a gargoyle used for surveillance. The only surveillance clerk I remember in GP is Clerk Brian, who's ace at gadgets but a clumsy spy? Does anyone know which book Harold's revealed to be a gargoyle?

Oh, the Grand Trunk management had made mistakes – oops, “well-intentioned judgments which, with the benefit of hindsight, might regrettably have been, in some respects, in error” – but these had mostly occurred, it appeared, while correcting “fundamental systemic errors” committed by the previous management. No one was sorry for anything, because no living creature had done anything wrong; bad things had happened by spontaneous generation in some weird, chilly, gemoetrical other-world, and “were to be regretted.”*

*Another bastard phrase that’d sell itself to any weasel in a tight corner.

But like, there would be regular balls and such. ANd you’ve got Sam Vimes dancing with Sybill, very sedate, very formal, very conservative, because this is definitely not Sam Vimes’ idea of fun (well, dancing with Sybill is surprisingly pleasant and and he didn’t mind learning but it’s different when you’re in front of the posh nobs). So Sam and Sybill, and all the other couples, dancing very normal.

It’s Mr Lipwig and Ms Dearheart, doing the tango
