Director: Rupert! You’re the Cowardly Lion, not the Sullen Lion…

*The black owl flies towards the group, then spots Neville and flies away.*

Ron: *Thinking* I can’t believe Hermione convinced us to perform this stupid play for the ‘poor, over-worked’ house-elves…

Ron: … …Hairball…

Whilst in Kansas, Ben’s fan club adopted some disguises so that they wouldn’t stand out…

ALL: ‘We’re off to see the Pillar – the Wonderful Pillar of Storgé!’

You know… these 4 famous characters actually kind of represent the 4 houses. Ravenclaw is represented by miss perfect, Hufflepuff is represented by the guy who doesn’t have a brain, and we all already know that the lion represents Gryffindor. As for the tin man representing Slytherin… well… he doesn’t have a heart either.

…And as Harry, Hermione and Neville are occupied with various activities, the small, furry mammal on Lupin’s upper lip reveals itself as a carnivore and devours Ron entirely.

Ron: *Indignantly* ‘My talent agent is worse than John O’Hurley’s!’

When Harry, Ron, Hermione, and Neville followed Sirius through the Veil, they wound up ‘somewhere over the rainbow’.

Ron: ‘…Wicked!’
