My favourite scene in this book is when Fred and George Weasley take their leave of Hogwarts. I could see it so vividly in my minds eye and laughed for a good while.
- Umbridge: "You two are about to learn what happens to wrong-doers in my school."
- Fred: "You know what? I don't think we are. George, I think we've outgrown full-time education... Time to test our talents in the real world, d'you reckon?"
- George: "Definitely."
