"I've been able to see them ever since my first year here. They've always pulled the carriages. Don't worry. You're just as sane as I am."
--------------------------------------------------
"There are plenty of eyewitness accounts, just because you're so narrow-minded you need to have everything shoved under your nose before you--"
--------------------------------------------------
"It's good, isn't it? I wanted to have it chewing up a serpent to represent Slytherin, you know, but there wasn't time. Anyway...good luck, Ronald!"

"I'll distract them all," she said. "Use your Cloak." And before he [Harry] could say a word, she had cried, "Oooh, look, a Blibbering Humdinger!" and pointed out the window.
-------------------------------------------------
“Daddy, look—one of the gnomes actually bit me!”

"I've never stunned anyone except in our D.A. lessons," said Luna, sounding mildly interested. "That was noisier than I thought it would be."
