"Well, Harry," said Fudge, pouring out tea, "you've had us all in a right flap, I don't mind telling you. Running away from your aunt and uncle's house like that! I'd started to think... but you're safe, and that's what matters."
Neville backed away, his wand up, mouthing wordlessly. Snape was bearing down upon him, reaching inside his robes.

Fudge cleared his throat loudly and picked up his pinstriped cloak.
"You think he'll be all right?" said Hermione nervously.
"Five points from Gryffindor because the potion was all right!
"Yeh always wait fer the hippogriff ter make the firs' move," Hagrid continued. "It's polite, see? Yeh walk toward him, and yeh bow, an' yeh wait. If he bows back, yeh're allowed ter touch him. If he doesn' bow, then get away from him sharpish, 'cause those talons hurt.

"Please, sir," said Hermione, "please, I could help Neville put it right --"

Crookshanks; slowly chewed up the spider, his yellow eyes fixed insolently on Ron.
Buckbeak flew him once around the paddock and then headed back to the ground; this was the bit Harry had been dreading; he leaned back as the smooth neck lowered, feeling he was going to slip off over the beak, then felt a heavy thud as the four ill-assorted feet hit the ground. He just managed to hold on and push himself straight again.
