I am going to have to re-read all the books again. Phrases are familiar but I can't pin them to any book in particular ... as has probably been obvious over the past few months.

If you have started re-reading from #1 then I will guess The Colour of Magic, not because I remember any talking horses but it is as good a guess as any other I could make.

And I thought I was being so clever by mentioning I had started from #1 (up to Guards!... now)
It is indeed "troll bridge" but I got it from A blink of the screen

Over to you pwaites.

ETA. Who can afford even a 2nd hand copy of once more with footnotes ? On Amazon a new one is close to $1000 and second hand about $500.

107pwaites
Fev 2, 2013, 8:02 pm

I've read A Blink of the Screen, not Once More with Footnotes. However, I've spent so long thinking that I'd never be able to read "Troll Bridge" because it was only in Once More with Footnotes, that I guess the two have become permanently associated in my mind.

So no guess. Hey, I'm only re-reading #8 at the moment :-)

An aside. I do really like the "Watch" arc. I need "permission" to follow this arc rather than do a chronological (published order) read.

If I don't get permission, I will probably turn into a small purple lizzard.
And I know you wouldn't want to see that!

Nice, actually nailed one! Well, here goes, then:

"For the vampires, it was a place to hang up. For the werewolves, it was where you let your hair down."

Grr. Too slow--Men at arms would be my first pick. Ah well...
Hogfather?

None of the above, so here's how the quote goes on:

"For the bogeymen, it was a place to come out of the closet. For the ghouls, it did a decent meat pasty and chips."

Still no luck, but maybe this helps a little. In the first quote, there's an asterix. I'll post that here, in its context:

"For the vampires *, it was a place to hang up.

* Those, that is, who weren't gathered around the harmonium at the Temperance Mission nervously singing about how much they liked cocoa."

Also, the book's not a Watch one.

Ok, this is either going to be easy or waaaaay obscure.

WOULD YOU LIKE A PEANUT? I AM AFRAID IT IS A LITTLE HARD TO GET THE PACKET OPEN.

Sorry about the earlier disappearance guys. Had an emergency...

Still a pair of noes. (Hope everything is ok now Ana?)

That sounds like one of the later Rincewinds... The Last Hero?

Annie has it. And here was me thinking it might go a while ...

Blimey! It was a wild stab in the dark, I promise.

'Hah!' he shouted, at the dark alleyways. 'Don' like it, eh? Taste of your, your, your own medicine thingy. Well, now you can bootle in your trems!'

Ok, I'll just go with a semi-random guess to get them started...

It sounds vaguely Rincewindish so, how about Eric?

Okay, a little more from slightly above the line on the same page.

'Are you from around these parts, young man?' said _____.
