"I broke the law!" Harry said. "The Decree for the Restriction of Underage Wizardry!"
"None of your business," said Ron jerkily, without looking up.

"'Bye, Neville!" called Stan.
The class broke into applause, all except for Malfoy, Crabbe, and Goyle, who were looking deeply disappointed.
"Is there a problem?" said a mild voice. Professor Lupin had just gotten out of the next carriage.
"It's because of you, Perce," said George seriously. "And there'll be little flags on the hoods, with HB on them"
