One of my fave quotes is in UA when Vetinari says something about bears and salmon and eggs and supreme beings and being better or something like that, or whatever. :lol:
"Disliking Carrot would be like kicking a puppy."
"You kicked a puppy," Lobsang said accusingly.

That would be the bit where he actually says:
" I am the supreme being because I wrestle bears in my sleep and from now on I will dine only on salmon eggs" right?

New fave scene in thud !!

"Mister vimes has sent for another squad from home" Said Fred Colon, shifting from one foot to the other. It had seemed quite warm when you first came into the cave, But after a while the clamminess could get a man down.
He reflected that Nobby wasn't affected by this, being blessed by nature with natural clammy.
"it's starting to give me the creeps, sarge" Said Nobby, indicating the kings. "if that hand moves I'm going to scream."

I know how that feels "the doll waved at me I swear it" :D

"Small Gods" when Om says "Let there be lettuce" and Brutha thinks to himself "And lo, there was lettuce" as he drops a piece onto the turtle in his bag.

"Pyramids" when Ptracy is described as being naked to the point of being little more than animate furniture, when she is described as using scent as "a battering ram" and when all the ancestors wander out of their pyramids and form a line to help flare the cone on the massive pyramid.

Also that camel was hilarious.

Yeah that cracks me up too "Freeeeed!! Heeeellllpppp!!" (or words to that effect}

Oh and the line "What duck?"

Oh and I forget what book but Foul Ol' Ron leaves Vetinari's office and a few minutes later Vetinari looks up and says something that makes Foul Ol' Ron's smell leave too...

oh and... where do you stop?

just re-read the scene in Men At Arms when Carrot gives the new recruits the oath. Cracked me up - it's an old old joke but it still works

Oh, so many, but a few spring to mind:

1. Guards! Guards!: Vetinari lectures Vimes on the nature of evil, only to have Vimes refute it. Both equally valid viewpoints. Plus, the rather meagre rewards.

2. Unseen Academicals: Vetinari's speech about evil (again) and his conclusions on how one should act.

3. Small Gods: Vorbis' comeuppance, and Brutha's death and afterlife.

4. Reaper Man: Quite a few, like Death being told off by Miss Flitworth and being compelled to rescue the girl, the whole final fight, and Death asking Azrael "WHAT OF THE HARVEST, IF NOT FOR THE CARE OF THE REAPER MAN?"

5. Thief of Time: Just about every scene after time stops.

I'll be back when I think of more.

there are a few of fave moments.

the bit in feet of clay where Fred bounces off the cow, onto the sheep and then onto the chicken which went mad. and in the same book when he meets up with Mister Vimes and he ducks into a doorway and then promptly ducks straight back out again.

and feet of clay again, when Mister Vimes was chasing the golem when he slips over, stands up, slips over again, stands up again and then falls down for the thrid time and decides to accept the majority vote and stay down

lords and ladies when the faculty (or part of it) meet Casaunder for the first time.

been an australian i really enjoyed pretty much every bit of the last continent that had to do with rincewind (TP really nailed the attitude of 'no worries')

and as mentioned above, where do you stop :lol:
"ach, crivens!"
