Andrew [Show Intro with music in background]: This is MuggleCast - Episode 14 for November 06, 2005.

Hello, hello, hello, hello, hello, hello, hello.

Kevin: You're saying "Hello" too much.

Laura: Okay.

Andrew: You 70,000 MuggleCast listeners.

Laura: We get the idea.

Andrew: I'm Andrew Sims.

Kevin: I'm Kevin Steck.

Eric: I'm Eric Scull.

Laura: I'm Laura Thompson.

Georgia: I'm Georgia Mountford.

Andrew: And this is the show where we bring you the latest in Harry Potter news, discussions, theories, cooking recipes, Acne treatments. I've told it to you all before. Before we get to anything else, first, let's go to Micah for the past week's top news stories.


Micah: Thanks, Andrew.

The World Premiere of Goblet of Fire took place earlier today. Be sure to check out our main page as it will be continuously updated with information.

And just a reminder about some TV appearances being made by the actors in the fourth Harry Potter film (All times are on the East Coast unless otherwise stated):

Thursday, November 10th: The Today Show - Dan Radcliffe to appear. The show runs from 7-10 AM on NBC.

Regis and Kelly: Dan Radcliffe to appear. The show airs live at 9 AM.

The Martha Stewart Show: Dan Radcliffe to appear. All times vary.

Friday, November 11th: MTV's TRL - Dan Radcliffe and Rupert Grint to appear. Airs live on East Coast at 5 PM.

"ET on MTV": Special airing on MTV about Harry Potter at 8 PM.

For a complete listing of all show appearances, please visit MuggleNet's Main Page.

And, we informed you last week that a folk group called "The Wyrd Sisters" had secured a court date where they hoped to have Goblet of Fire banned from distribution across Canada. They believed that their band's name was being used in the film without permission and that it would ruin their reputation. The Canadian Press reported on Friday that their motion has been dismissed, much to the delight of all Canadian Harry Potter fans!

As always, there are tons and tons of new video clips, screen shots, poster scans, post cards, including shots of Emma Watson in the upcoming editions of Teen and Elle magazine, Dan Radcliffe in Time Magazine and Entertainment Weekly, and Robert Pattinson in Teen People. There are also two new contests to check out: one being run by the Today Show and the other by MuggleNet, Warner Bros., and the Noble Collection. Go to for more information.

One brief announcement, for those of you wondering, the date for the release of the Spanish translation of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince has been announced. It is due out on February 23, 2006.

There are also two Minicasts available for download. One which is an interview with Matthew Vines of, who has already seen the new film and the other is a joint podcast with TLC's Melissa and John with information regarding the upcoming New York City podcast.

Finally, don't forget our LIVE New York City podcast at Barnes & Noble this Saturday, November 12th at 33 West 17th Street between Broadway and Park Ave. in Union Square.

That's all the news from our News center in New York for this November 06, 2005 edition of MuggleCast. I'll see you guys live, next week.

Update on New York City Podcast

Andrew: Thank you, Micah. And the first thing many of you might have noticed by now is that we have a new MuggleCaster. Please welcome Georgia from MuggleNet Fan Fiction.

Laura: Yay!

Andrew: Yay!

Georgia: Hello!

Andrew: Hi, Georgia!

Georgia: Hi!

Andrew: Okay, tell us a little about yourself. Where you are from, what you do around the site.

Georgia: I'm British, but I live in Australia and I work on the Fan Fiction section, and I have for about a year now.

Eric: Woo!

Andrew: Excellent! And we brought you on here last minute because Ben was supposed to be on again, but... [Laughs]

Eric: Ben is on time out right now.

Laura: Yeah, Ben is in time out.

[Andrew and Laura laugh]

Eric: He's outside the room. He's out Andrew's bedroom right now. We put him in the corner of Andrew's hallway.

Andrew: Well, we had a couple of problems, but Ben will definitely be on next week because next week is our LIVE show. [Laughs] Wow, it's only a week away now.

Kevin: I don't think he has a choice then. Yes, it is.

Andrew: You know what's funny? I don't know who came up with this LIVE podcast idea first, but my original idea...

Kevin: It was me.

Andrew: No, it wasn't.

Laura: It was all Kevin.

Andrew: My original idea was, "Hmmm, this will be nice. After the premiere, we'll go to Starbucks. Oh, maybe ten people will show up." [Laughs]

Eric: Yeah, how many people have registered?

Kevin: It's true.

Andrew: Boy, was I wrong. Okay, well, we have like 600 people. That's an estimate. We have about 350 reservations, but each person is bringing at least one other friend. There is one group that is bringing 15. There's, the HP Fan Trips people are bringing, I don't even know how many.

Eric: Yeah.

Andrew: Sssh.

Georgia: No pressure.

Andrew: My advice to all of you is get there early. Just get there.

Eric: Yeah, even earlier than the time... Yeah.

Andrew: I just... [Laughs] It's going to be so crowded. There will be tons of seating. There will be room for everyone. It's not going to be like Ozzfest and there's going to be no room to move around.

[All laugh]

Andrew: Kevin can attest to that.

Eric: Except that does not mean you can't carry us in the crowd.

[Laura laughs]

Eric: Because that might happen sometime later in the night.

Andrew: It's just going to be, it is going to be a lot of fun, and we really cannot wait for it. I am looking at the e-mails right now. We have 332 e-mails. People who have sent us an e-mail and said to us, "Hey! I'm coming." Each person is at least bringing one other person. Multiply 332 times at least 2, that's 660.

Eric: Four.

Kevin: Yeah.

Eric: 664.

Andrew: Six hundred and sixty four.

Eric: Good.

Andrew: A couple larger groups. So, my only suggestion is to get there early. There will be plenty of room. It is going to be comfortable. It's not going to be like a madhouse or anything. It's going to be a nice time.

Laura: It's not going to be a mosh pit.

Eric: [In creepy voice]It's a madhouse!

Laura: Basically.

Andrew: Right.

Eric: [In creepy voice]A madhouse.

Andrew: I've been thinking about it so much lately. Me and Melissa just worked out our intro. That's going to be pretty fun.

Kevin: Oh, geez.

Andrew: I don't want to spoil any surprises yet. It's going to be a fun time. And, for those of you wondering. Yes, we're going to have a video version. Yes, we're going to have an audio version. The audio...

Kevin: Oh, we're having a video version now?

Eric: We're having video.

Andrew: Oh, we're going to do it all.

Kevin: Awesome!

Andrew: We're going to do any version you could possibly think of, but the video version won't be up as soon as the audio. That could be up to a week, but the audio version will...

Kevin: Yeah, that's going to be tough to edit.

Andrew: The audio version will be up the following day, which is Sunday, because right after the show we don't want to do that. We're going out to dinner.

Eric: Yeah.

Kevin: Have a good time.

Andrew: And chillax.

Laura: Slackers.

Andrew: Laura, you want to do it? You want to edit the show?

Eric: Yeah, yeah. We'll send it to you down in Georgia.

Laura: Oh, thanks!

Eric: Because you'll be sitting at home on your computer being like, "I can't be in New York!"

Laura: You know what? You suck!

Andrew: So, that's that. We can't wait. Kevin, Eric, Ben, Micah, Emerson will all be there from MuggleNet. And TLC... Ehhh... You know...

Laura: No one cares about them.

Eric: Other fan sites as well? Harry Potter Fan Zone will be there.

Andrew: Oh yeah. Mike from, Aris Janetakos, who made an appearance on MuggleCast on Episode 2, and Matthew Vines might be there. I'm not sure.

Kevin: HPANA as well.

Eric: Oh, Jeff.

Andrew: Oh, right. Jeff.

Kevin: Jeff. Yep.

Eric: Yes.

Andrew: Jeffrey. Good man Jeffrey.

Eric: It will be a nice reunion.

Kevin: Yeah, it's going to be quite a show.

Andrew: It's going to be fun.

Kevin: It will be.

Andrew: But, moving right along. Today, we are announcing our new partnership with GoDaddy is your No. 1 source for all your hosting needs. GoDaddy has domain names, transfers, and renewals for as low as $1.99.

Kevin: Plus, check out hosting plans, website builders, secure certificates, and much more.

Kevin: Vist and the click the "GoDaddy Banner" to get started with your new website today.

Andrew: And you might be saying, "Well, who says this GoDaddy is all said and good, and a good service?" Well, we have all used it ourselves.

Kevin: Yes, we have. I actually registered with it. So...

Andrew: Easy, quick, right? Yes?

Kevin: Yes. Very good. They actually called today.

Andrew: And, we've all...

Kevin: That was very good.

Andrew: Oooh!

Kevin: Yes.

Andrew: We've all used them for personal experience with different types of Internet hosting needs and we know a lot of you have come to us saying, "Well, how do you start your own website?" This is where you start with the hosting and the domain names.

Kevin: Yep. You got to have a good... Well, you have to have a good hoster before you have a good website.

Andrew: Yes, you do. And we do recommend GoDaddy today.


Andrew: Hey, guys. We screwed up again on Episode 13.

Eric: No, that was my fault, Andrew. I will take responsibility.

Andrew: Good job.

Eric: I did take responsibility on the Comments. It is...

Andrew: To clarify.

Eric: Yeah.

Andrew: Go ahead.

Eric: To clarify it was not Katie Bell that was attacked in Book 6. It was, what was it?

Andrew: ...Angelina Johnson. [Transcriber's note: It was Katie Bell that was attacked]

Eric: Angelina Johnson. Sorry. So, when we were talking about the death attack that Draco was giving. I don't know. Everybody understood what I meant, but it was incorrect. So...

[Kevin laughs]

Andrew: And then we also got complaints about how we didn't put a spoiler warning on Episode 13.

Eric: I...

Laura: Well...

Andrew: Because we talked about Goblet of Fire a lot. I mean...

Laura: But, we said we were talking about Goblet of Fire.

Andrew: Yeah.

[Telephone rings]

Andrew: People were upset, but I'll put one at the beginning of this show if we talk about Goblet of Fire.

Eric: Too much.

Andrew: Heavy duty.

Eric: Yeah.

Laura: For those of you wondering, that is my phone.

Andrew: I don't think, I mean if you hear us start talking about Goblet of Fire just stop it. I mean I am sorry for those people who might have gotten spoiled a little, I guess, but we'll start doing it again. I didn't think it would be too much of a problem. My "B". My "B". My bad. Sorry, dudes.

[Kevin laughs]

Eric: Also, I'm getting nightmare stories from people. Last week, we were talking about British schools.

Andrew: Oh, yeah.

Eric: And, I asked if they are really as bad as they are being portrayed in the Goblet of Fire movie, and actually as a matter of fact, they make it seem like a playtime, compared to the stories that I am getting from these people.

[Georgia laughs]

Eric: You know? I must of got, I got at least twenty different re-tellings of how people were... I am not even going to go into it. It's bad. So, that answered my question. Thank you, people!

Andrew: But, thanks for keeping Eric entertained.

Eric: Yes.

[Laura and Kevin laugh]

Andrew: It's nice to see him...

Kevin: He likes hearing horror stories.

[Laura laughs]

Andrew: It's nice to see him busy.

Eric: Especially from British people. Yeah.

Andrew: And then also, quick Happy Birthday shout-outs! People who e-mail me say, "Hey! Can you wish me Happy Birthday on the show?" I say, "Eh. Sure!" Why not? It's fun. [Laughs]

Happy Birthday to Chaya. Her birthday was back on the 16th. And Megan, who had a birthday earlier this week. So, [Singing] Happy Birthday to Megan and Chaya.

Eric: Also, if you're a Harry Potter fan and would like to...

Andrew: Happy Birthday to you!

Eric: And if you would like to propose to your girlfriend or your future fiancÚ through this show, we do, do that for you.

Andrew: Happy Birthday to you!

[Kevin laughs]

Eric: We will gladly say, "Kim, will you marry Johnathan?"

Andrew: Happy Birthday to youuu! Wasn't that nice background music while Eric was talking?

Kevin: Rambling?

Andrew: Yeah.

Kevin: Yeah.

Andrew: Oh, and everyone don't forget...

Eric: I was offering to do wedding announcements, Kevin.

Andrew: Everyone, do not forget. I don't know, how could you forget, but November is...

Laura: Native American Month.

Eric: Native American Month.

Andrew: Right! And that's why is sponsoring MuggleCast all this month to bring you the latest information all about Pow Wows, the Native American culture. They have videos, audio, pictures, calendars, dance routines, songs, it's all there. So, visit for quick links for students and teachers. It really is a great resource and we have been getting lots of e-mails about it, people enjoying it, thanking us for mentioning it, bringing it to them.

Let's see, what else? Heck! That's it.

Book Reviews

Kevin: Oh, we could talk about book reviews. We have been debating and we need some recommendations for doing reviews on books that Harry Potter fans can read other than Harry Potter, while waiting for Book 7.

Eric: Yes.

Kevin: So, if you do want to send us recommendations for books, you can probably send it to my e-mail address. That's kevin at staff dot mugglenet dot com and we have to, we're going to take our time with it. So, we'll try to do maybe one a week or one every two weeks because you have to give us time to review it. You know? Read the book itself. But, after that we should get that off the...

Eric: We're going to see if it works out.

Kevin: Yeah. We'll try.

Eric: Yeah. I mean, because I know for one, Ben can't read, so he's out for the reading.

Kevin: Yeah.

Andrew: No, don't.

Kevin: No.

Eric: He admitted to it. He said Ben... Ben said he can't read.

Kevin: Well, Andrew's dyslexic.

Eric: Yeah.

Andrew: I can't read. I'll openly admit it.

[Kevin laughs]

Eric: And, I don't really read either. Which is...

Laura: None of us read. Do you know this book called Harry Potter?

Georgia: That's a movie, Laura.

Laura: Maybe you've heard of it? Yeah.

Andrew: Parry Hotter? What?

Laura: [Laughs] Oh yeah. It is a movie.

Kevin: That's where I've seen it.

Eric: Oh yeah, but what's the...

Andrew: We are the most unentertaining podcast in the world!

Kevin: I know, but we try.

Andrew: I take that back. Now people are going to use that clip for other shows that hate us.

Laura: [Laughs] That's going to be TLC's blackmail.

Eric: PotterCast will use that.

Andrew: You know, there several other Harry Potter podcasts out there.

Kevin: There are, yes.

Andrew: Believe it or not, we're not the only one.

Georgia: But, we're the best one.

Laura: Exactly!

Eric: Thank you, Georgia!

Andrew: Oh, Georgia! Thank you for saying that! How much should I promise to pay you?

[All laugh]

Georgia: I don't get paid! What's this?

[Andrew laughs]

Kevin: Payment?

Eric: I think the currency... No, Andrew, unfortunately the exchange rate is crap right now, so whatever you offered her is probably triple that.

Andrew: Oh! Oh! I take that back.

Goblet of Fire Chat

Andrew: We are only a few days away until Goblet of Fire. Well, it depends on when you're listening to this.

Eric: We just talked about this.

Andrew: But, we're definitely less than two weeks away from the Harry Potter film.

Georgia: Away? We don't get it here until December 1st.

Laura: Awww!

Andrew: Ohhh!

Eric: What? The Australian...

Andrew: That's right.

Georgia: Yeah, I don't know why they would do that. Why the U.S. and U.K. get it, but we don't in Australia.

Andrew: I forgot about that.

Eric: They'll have it on the Internet.

Kevin: Oh geez.

Andrew: We're all giddy, while in the meantime...

Kevin: Eric, don't say that. Come on.

Eric: [Laughs] Kevin will get it for you.

Kevin: Oh yeah.

[Andrew laughs]

Kevin: Let's not. [Laughs]

Andrew: [Singing] WB, I hope you didn't just hear that.

Kevin: Yes. Kevin would rather not be arrested.

Andrew: Ding, ding, ding, dun!

[All laugh]

Andrew: But, it would be pretty funny if someone came to arrest him during the LIVE show.

Kevin: Oh, okay.

Eric: They take him away.

Kevin: Do you want to give them the address too?

Andrew: So anyway...

Eric: No, the fans would mob them. No...

Andrew: So, if you live in the United States or the United Kingdom, Goblet of Fire is only two weeks away, less than two weeks away in fact. There has been a lot of news lately, but the one story we wanted to talk about was actually late-breaking. The follow-up just came out as we were about to record. A judge has dismissed the motion to block the Potter film in Canada. What happened was that the Wyrd Sisters, who play a role, their music is in the film, and recently they came to Warner Bros. and they said, "Hey. We don't want to be in the movie." They argued that a fictional rock band in the film would ruin their careers and were seeking $40 million in damages from Warner Bros.

[Kevin sighs]

Andrew: The Wyrd Sisters were going to be in the biggest film probably in the whole year and they were afraid it would ruin their career.

Eric: And they wanted $40 million?

Andrew: Does that make sense?

Eric: They wanted $40 million.

Georgia: Just, why would they do that?

Andrew: But, their name wasn't use. It wasn't used.

Laura: It has no name mentioned in the film.

Andrew: Warner Bros. proved it to them. This is the best promotion a band could get.

Eric: Yeah.

Laura: Yeah.

Andrew: I just don't understand why they're...

Laura: Yeah, why they were so upset about it.

Andrew: They wanted $40 million from Warner Bros.? I want to know how much Warner Bros. paid them in the first place.

Eric: They would have gotten that if they just did a website of their own. You know? If they would have done "" they would have gotten so many hits and ad revenue would have been $40 million. You know? From being a...

Andrew: This is just...

Eric: It's crazy.

Andrew: It's product placement. It's easy. [Gets aggravated] It's...

Eric: It's free ads!

Laura: Yeah, but you know, I also think they might be doing it to get the attention.

Andrew: The press.

Laura: Because they probably know that there are a lot of Harry Potter fans.

Eric: But, you know what?

Andrew: They even... And then they wanted the film out of Canada.

Eric: Yeah! I mean...

Andrew: So, not only would they have made $40 million.

Eric: They would have ticked...

Andrew: It would have been banned from Canadian...

Eric: They would have ticked off everybody in Canada! You know. I have faith now in, now I have faith in the Canadian court system because...

[Laura laughs]

Andrew: Yeah.

Kevin: Yeah, it was a little ridiculous. I don't think it ever had a chance.

Andrew: But, now of course, the judge has dismissed it, so there is no more worry for the Canadian fans. They're rejoicing. They're all going, "Eh! Eh! Eh! Eh!"

[Laura laughs]

Eric: No, I love...

Andrew: It's a happy world up in Canada.

Eric: I love the voicemail we got from the Canadian girl that said, "Eh!"

Laura: Yeah, where he was like, "Eh!" [Laughs]

Eric: "Eh, I'm from Canada. Eh!" That was good.

[Kevin laughs]

Andrew: Oh yeah. I remember that. So, that's good. Anything else you guys want to talk about relating to Goblet of Fire?

Eric: Ummm.

Andrew: It's only a few days away.

Laura: That...

Kevin: We'll have a lot to talk about.

Andrew: World Premiere attendees, pretty much everyone. The Trio.

Kevin: Yeah, that was to be expected.

Andrew: Bonnie Wright.

Kevin: Well, that thing on MuggleNet, that was for the premiere in London. Do we know if there's any less people coming?

Andrew: Right, World Premiere.

[Transcriber's note: They are referring now to the New York premiere.]

Eric: Yeah. Is there more people?

Andrew: Yes. We do know who is going to be there, but I am not sure if we can talk about it.

Eric: Oh.

[Absolute silence]

Kevin: [Laughs] Wow! That's silent!

Andrew: [Whispers] Do you think, wait, do you think they are still listening? Warner Bros.?

Eric: Yeah. I'd like to see, I'd like to see them try and take them away.

Laura: They are too busy arresting Matt Vines, guys.

Andrew: [Whispers] Oh yeah.

Eric: Well, you know what.

Andrew: [Whispers] I just don't want them to hear us.

Eric: I'd like to see them and try and arrest us. If the cops came in, guys. If the cops came in, the fans would just mob them, and we would be able to escape through the back door.

Andrew: That is true.

Eric: Or we'd like change...

Andrew: The MuggleCast Army is the strongest thing I've ever seen.

Eric: Yes.

Laura: Yes! I concur.

Andrew: It got us back on iTunes. It made me a multi-millionaire. It's doing everything perfectly for us.

Eric: Andrew, I thought your house looked different.

Andrew: Well, I will say this. The World Premiere has many more attendees than the Domestic Premiere does. Many more. Robbie Coltrane, Robert Hardy, who plays Fudge, Robert Pattinson, Rider Lloyd Pack, Shirley Henderson...

Eric: Oh, Moaning Myrtle.

Andrew: Oh, who else? Warwick Davis. They're all... Oh, and JK Rowling is going to be at the World Premiere.

Eric: Will she be in New York?

Andrew: Basically, the entire cast is going to be there.

Eric: Andrew, will she be in New York?

Andrew: At the World Premiere.

Kevin: But, that was to be expected, I mean.

Laura: Yeah, Americans can't saying "Rolling," everyone.

Eric: Rolling.

Andrew: Rowling, Rolling. I don't know. I just think growl, rowl. Growl, rowl.

Kevin: Rowl, Rowl.

[Laura laughs]

Andrew: Next time I see her, that's what I am going to call her. Yo, "Growl Rowl!"

[Laura laughs]

Kevin: She'll appreciate that. I am sure.

Eric: If she spelled it differently...

Andrew: Oh, I am sure she'll love it.

Eric: If she spelled it like "Rolling," people would be saying, "Rowling."

Kevin: Never talk to her again.

Andrew: So, I guess there is really nothing else to say there. Well, also good news for everybody who isn't going to be going to the World Premiere online. You're going to be able to watch it live. Not the actual movie, but the Red Carpet arrivals. You won't be able to...

Kevin: [Laughs] Well, you may be able to watch the actual movie if someone sneaks in their camera, you know?

Laura: Kevin. Hush!

Kevin: Oh, sorry.

Eric: Yeah, they'll stop the movie to take the person out.

Laura: Warner Bros. is going to come and like...

Kevin: Arrest me?

Laura: Yeah, they are going to get us all in the night.

Kevin: MPAA will deliver a $5,000 bill to my door.

[Laura laughs]

Eric: That's okay. We'll just podcast from jail then. Guys, we'll podcast from jail.

[Kevin laughs]

Eric: It will be like, "Hi, we're in the New York Penitentiary right now."

Andrew: What does this doing for Warner Bros.? Why are they putting it online?

Kevin: Publicity.

Andrew: The Red Carpet arrivals.

Kevin: Publicity, I would say.

Eric: Because they are nice people.

Laura: Didn't they do that with Chamber of Secrets, too?

Andrew: Yeah.

Laura: Yeah.

Andrew: And...

Laura: I'm pretty sure a lot of movie premieres, I've seen a lot of...

Andrew: ...with Sorcerer's Stone, too.

Laura: Especially recently just a lot of publicity online with movie premieres. So.

Andrew: It's this online craze. It's madness!

Kevin: It's true and it's getting a little bit more sophisticated now, so they can stream things a little easier.

Andrew: Yeah.

Kevin: Especially with wireless.

Andrew: I don't watch TV very often, but I sat down and watched it last night. I went through four or five channels. All of them have Goblet of Fire ads. They're putting it everywhere.

Laura: Yay!

Kevin: Yep.

Andrew: They're, they're, I mean I guess it's good. Well, obviously for them it is.

[Andrew and Kevin laugh]

Eric: Well, they have to meet the budget. They have to meet the budget of the film even though they would have done it anyway.

Andrew: Is it possible to overkill it?

Kevin: I don't think so. I don't think, I mean people...

Laura: I don't think it matters.

Andrew: Especially with the Potter fandom.

Kevin: They'll either see it or not. It's like Lord of the Rings. They were pasting that all over the place. I saw that on billboards in Torrington. [Laughs]

Andrew: Yeah. But, I think if, I've said this in the past. If you promote it too much, people might get too much of a good look, and might change their minds on whether they want to see it or not.

Kevin: Well, the only thing I would be concerned about is that people think it is going to be better than it is because of all the publicity.

Eric: Yeah.

Kevin: And then they go and see it and they are disappointed because they have this expectation of it.

Eric: Like Prisoner of Azkaban.

Andrew: Right. Well, that's what happened with me with Prisoner of Azkaban.

Eric: Yeah, me too.

Andrew: I'm not keeping my hopes up for Goblet of Fire.

Kevin: Yeah.

Andrew: Matthew Vines is not going to change my mind.

[Laura laughs]

Kevin: Yeah, I'm sorry, but the movies aren't the best, but...

Laura: Nooooo. They're not.

Kevin: They're entertaining. They're entertaining.

Georgia: I'll tell you what really annoyed me. I saw in a preview that Mad-Eye Moody has his eye strapped on?

Laura: Yeah.

Andrew: Yeah. That's a difference.

Georgia: What's with that?

Laura: I don't like that at all. I think it's stupid.

Eric: I'm used to it now. I've gotten used to it though.

[Laura laughs]

Andrew: To me that seems like a cheap way to not have to work on special effects.

Laura: Yeah, because if his eye is strapped in, it is not going to pop out like it is all the time. So.

Kevin: Yep.

Andrew: Yeah.

Kevin: Hey. We're not sure about that though.

Eric: You know what I think it was, I think there are probably...

Laura: Well, we're not, but I think Warner Bros. is being cheap.

Georgia: Mmm. Oh, you know I couldn't believe what they did to that werewolf in the third movie.

Eric: Oh.

[Kevin laughs]

Andrew: Oh. Yeah.

Georgia: That was just terrible. I'll never forgive them for that.

Kevin: [Sighs] Ugh. It really was.

Andrew: Sirius in the fire is going to be a big upset, too.

Eric: What? No it... Eh...

Andrew: I think.

Eric: Matt said it was cool.

Andrew: It's like an intern made that.

Eric: Hey! Hey!

Kevin: An intern probably did make that. [Laughs]

Eric: What's wrong with interns?

Kevin: They were like, "We don't have to do this. Hey, you, come over here?"

Andrew: There's nothing wrong with interns, the problem is, well, it wasn't an intern, and the poor guy who made that is crying right now because everyone keeps insulting it.

[All laugh]

Eric: I think it's cool.

Kevin: "Oh, my work!"

Andrew: I know. He probably spent like three months on that.

Laura: Instead of like his head...

Andrew: His face is in the fire.

Laura: Yeah.

Eric: I had no problem with it.

Andrew: It looks like molten lava!

Laura: [Laughs] It does!

Andrew: It's supposed to be in the gas...

Eric: I expected to see a...

Andrew: I mean, the flames.

Eric: Yeah. I expected to see more-

Laura: It's like he's actually in the logs.

Eric: Yeah. I kind of expected...

Andrew: You can't even see logs!

Eric: I wanted...

Andrew: It's molten lava!

[Laura laughs]

Eric: Okay, Andrew...

Andrew: It's like Harry's in a volcano!

[Laura laughs]

Eric: Andrew, I was expecting a more Wizard of Oz type of thing.

Kevin: He's in a volcano.

Eric: I was expecting, like, the...all right screw it!

Laura: They're like, trying to combine Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings now.

Kevin: Hey, we try.

Eric: Andrew, I was expecting a sort of Wizard of Oz...

Andrew: They tried. That's for sure.
