Memorable lines:

  • "You keepin' well, then, 'Arry? I seen your name in the paper loads over the summer, but it weren't never nuffink very nice.... I said to Ern, I said, ''e didn't seem like a nutter when we met 'im, just goes to show, dunnit?'" [Stan Shunpike]

  • "You have no subtlety, Potter," said Snape, his dark eyes glittering. "You do not understand fine distinctions. It is one of the shortcomings that makes you such a lamentable potion-maker."

  • "I think I'll go to bed," said Harry, stuffing the homework planner back into his bag and making a mental note to drop it in the fire the first opportunity he got.
