Character 1
  1. He hadn't even been sure which one was Mrs Hammerhock. They all looked alike to him. When she was introduced - helmeted, bearded - he'd got quite polite, non-committal answers. No, she's locked his workshop and seemed to have mislaid the key. Thank you.

  2. Doesn't the bloody man ever get his head down? Isn't there a room somewhere with a black dressing gown hanging on the door?

  3. "But before the rest of you good citizens disperse quietly and go about your business,"..."I suggest you look hard at these dragons. Do any of them look sixty feet long? Would you say they've got an eighty-foot wingspan? How hot do they flame would you say?"

Character 2
  1. "It's trying to take me over. It knows what's going to happen, and I think it wants to go to Ankh-Morpork. I want to go too."
  2. ..."people don't usually find themselves mysteriously let out of prison with a bunch of weapons handily close and all the guards out of action. Ever thought of that?"
  3. It was a test obviously. They'd given him this bent piece of wood. He had to do something with it. It was clearly very important.
Character 3
  1. He looked from one guard to another. he knew a variety of methods of unarmed combat, but they all relied on the opponent not being able to fire an arrow straight through you as soon as you moved.
  2. He envied his fellow students who believed in gods that were intangible and lived a long way away on top of some mountain. A fellow could really believe in a gods like that. But it was extremely hard to believe in gods when you saw him at breakfast every day.
  3. "It's a good riddle,"..."Very deep. Very moving. The whole human condition in a nutshell. But you've got to admit, this doesn't all happen to one individual in one day, does it?"
