“Don’t count your owls before they are delivered,” said Dumbledore gravely.

“Hold yer Hippogriffs, I haven’ finished me story yet!” said Hagrid indignantly.

“Instead you get to arrest me,” said Dumbledore, smiling. “It’s like losing a Knut and finding a Galleon, isn’t it?”

“Merlin’s beard!”

“The fire’s lit, but the cauldron’s empty,” as Ivor Dillonsby put it to me…

“Wasn’ room ter swing a Kneazle,” said Hagrid.

“How dare you!” said Ron, in mock outrage. “We’ve been working like house-elves here!”

“I’m only yanking your wand, I’m Fred really–”

“Time is Galleons, little brother,” said Fred.

“Well, it’s no good crying over spilt potion, I suppose…”

"Some son of a Bludger’s gone and nicked all mine!”

“[Invisibility cloaks] aren’t exactly ten a Knut, you know,”
