  • Non Sequitur Scene: The part where Rincewind accidentally teleports himself and Twoflower onto an airplane in our world and ends up thinking that he is Dr. Rjinswand, (33, a bachelor, born in Sweden, raised in New Jersey, and a specialist in the breakaway oxidation phenomena of certain nuclear reactors [a fancy way of saying that they're uncontrollably on fire]). only for the Luggage to interrupt the whole scene.
    • Becomes Fridge Brilliance when you realize that it's all an extended pun: They were transported to another plane.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Rincewind muses on how there are too many heroes in Ankh-Morpork, and how the notable questing-grounds are so busy during high season that they plan to introduce a rota. A scene familiar to anyone who ever played a regular MMORPG, all of which came out well after this book was published (with the exception of certain MUD games).
  • Special Effects Failure: In the two-part film from SkyOne, please pay no attention to Cohen's clearly visible teeth.
