Spot it? You can hardly miss the bugger!

Also, I think this deserves to be a signature quote (although not in this esteemed forum);

In front of her."

Try telling Wizards of the Cost, I mean Coast, that Purple Worms should be copyrighted to Frank Herbert rather than to them.

All except one...

Nice Terry Pratchett reference there, though I still don't know if it was deliberate.

Not only was it not deliberate, I still can't spot it!

Hehe. 0k, I'll be nice. The book it's in is Night Watch, which I recommend very much, brilliant book, I can explain the meaning if you want, but it might be more fun, and interesting, to read the book it features in.

I have read the book (many times, in fact, as it's one of my favourites). The only reference I can dredge up is Carcer and his hidden knives.

To paraphrase as well as I remember (White for those who have not read it): Carcer is described as having a demon on each shoulder, but instead of being in competition, they egg each-other on.

Oh right.

A bit too obscure for me to recall, I'm afraid.

I remember it because I quite liked Carcer as a character. :)

Ohhh. I was looking for the reference in the words "All except one..." as that's what you quoted. Makes more sense now.

Same here. Hence the "just one more knife" angle.

That's not the correct way to spell elevensies.

The Hobbit was difficult to get made because the various rights were tied up, The new film will be made by Guillermo del Toro all because of New Line Cinema

New Line Cinema were sued by Peter Jackson for depriving him of the profits from the LOTR films, by The Tolkien Estate and Harper Collins again because they would not give them the required 7.5% of profits

Could this be a question on QI - Hollywood Accounting

New Line have been fined for not producing accounts on request and have now paid the Tolkien estate so The Hobbit can now be made
