Professor Lupin had come back. He paused as he entered, looked around, and said, with a small smile, "I haven't poisoned that chocolate, you know...."
"Oh, tremendously funny!" said Malfoy. "Really witty, giving us books that try and rip our hands off!"

He was as shabby as ever but looked healthier than he had on the train, as though he had had a few square meals.
"The point is," Wood went on, resuming his pacing, "the Quidditch Cup should have had our name on it these last two years. Ever since Harry joined the team, I've thought the thing was in the bag.
