Memorable lines

"I thought we were getting along fine until I heard the first explosion", Royden Poke (Ministry spokeswizard about a goblin riot in Chipping Clodbury)

"Would the Ministry of Magic turn a blind eye if I kidnapped my brother's children and turned them into blood-sucking ferrets?", Buckley Cooper (from a letter to the Problem Page entitled "How much revenge is safe?")

"All right, maybe you do have to be a bit deranged to play golf...", Randolph Pauncefoot (fan of the Montrose Magpies after Chaser Alasdair Maddock was fired after being caught with a set of Muggle "peculiar metal sticks")

Commentary

The Ministry threat to confiscate spectator's wands during a Quidditch match is difficult to enforce, as evidenced by the events of the Quidditch World Cup final in 1974 (Pm).
