"Oh, are you a prefect, Percy?" said one of the twins, with an air of great surprise. "You should have said something, we had no idea."
"Hang on, I think I remember him saying something about it," said the other twin. "Once-"
"Or twice-"
"A minute-"
"All summer."

"You don't understand," said Harry, "this is important."

"Which way did they go, Peeves?" Filch was saying. "Quick, tell me."
"Say please."
"Don’t mess about, Peeves, now where did they go?"
"Shan't say nothing if you don't say please," said Peeves in his annoying sing-song voice.
"All right - please."
"NOTHING! Ha haaa! Told you I wouldn't say 'nothing' if you didn't say please!"

As much money and life as you could want! The two things most human beings would choose above all - the trouble is, humans do have a knack of choosing precisely those things that are worst for them.

Hogwarts, Hogwarts, Hoggy Warty Hogwarts
Teach us something please
Whether we be old and bald
Or young with scabby knees
Our heads could do with filling
With some interesting stuff
For now they're bare and full of air
Dead flies and bits of fluff
So teach us something worth knowing
Bring us back what we've forgot
Just do your best, we'll do the rest
And learn until our brains all rot

Harry was speeding toward the ground when the crowd saw him clap his hand to his mouth as though he was going to be sick-he hit the field on all fours-coughed-and something gold fell into his hand.
"I've got the snitch!" he shouted, waving it above his head.
