not quite a scene but I find this amusing :

"I,after hearing evidence from a number of experts, including Mrs Slipdry the midwife,
certify that the balance of probability is that the bearer of this document,
C.W.St john Nobbs,
is a human being.
Signed, Lord Vetinari"

aww poor nobby , bless his holey boots :)
And in Heather's case, there were sometimes Third Thoughts and Fourth Thoughts, although these were quite difficult to manage and sometimes led her to walk into doors

Yep Moving Pictures was just a wall to wall parody of early Hollywood... I am glad Gaspode made it through in the end as I think I read somewhere He was going to be killed off in the book but Terry was talked round into keeping Him alive.............. is this true? :shock:

I think it is yes -certainly the 'death scene' got me going and I was filling up just before Laddie made his well-timed appearance :lol:

Yes poor Nobby, as a lad beaten by His Father and left to fend on the streets....... lucky for Him He meet Vimes in Night Watch or He would have probably ended up in a gutter or somewhere else equally unsavory!

Gaspode is the Dog equal of Nobby, dumped in the River in a sack with a Brick for a Mother......... BUT He had His chance to move into a nice clean Family friendly home and did a runner as soon as He could!

Living rough with the down and outs suits Him fine....as long as a sausage is visible in the near future ............. :lol:

Favourite quote ever:

(Guards!Guards!)

"Codpiece like in fish?" Said Carrot, mystified.
"No. It's for the fighting," Mumbled Varneshi. "You should wear it all the time. Protects your vitals, like."
Carrot tried it on.
"It's a bit small, Mr Varneshi."
"That's because you don't wear it on your head, you see."

First time I read that I was like *A* God bless Carrot :D

"Why is that gas stove wearing a hat?"

' in front of-well he had to think of it as the usurping Hogfather-was a small child of indeterminate sex who seemed to be mostly woollen bobble hat. '

WHY ARE YOUR HANDS ON BITS OF STRING, CHILD?

the child looked down the length of its arms to the dangling mittens affixed to its sleeves. It held them up for inspection.

"Glubs" it said

I SEE. VERY PRACTICAL :lol:

heres another one though was tempted to put up part of jingo where nobby is in womens clothing getting in touch with his feminine side.

but cracking up with this scene from the last continent

The Senior Wrangler hammered the Dean hard on the back.
"it's alright "squeaked the Dean"often...have...these...coughing...fits"
the God scribbled industriously for a few seconds and then stopped and chewed the end of the pencil thoughtfully.
"and all this er, this sex is done by unskilled labour?" he said
"oh , yes"
"no quality control of any description?"
"er,no"
"how does your species go about it?" said the God. He looked questioningly at Ponder.
"it...er...we...er " Ponder stuttered
"we avoid it" said Ridcully"nasty cough you've got there dean" :lol:

The whole of Men at Arms is fabulous (just re-read it).

I was very upset that he killed off Cuddy.

Currently re-reading Making Movies.
Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

The rest of us are a bit crap.
