  • QUOTES (5)

    • Ethel: Lost, are we?
      Mildred: Which way is the quickest?
      Ethel: Makes no difference. You'll be late anyway. What's your name?
      Mildred: Mildred Hubble.
      Ethel: I'm Ethel Hallow. One of the Hallows.
      Mildred: You a second-year?
      Ethel: First day today. I've had private flying lessons.
      Mildred: Nice broomstick.
      Ethel: It's a Slazenger Hazeltwig.
      Mildred: Could you give me a lift?
      Ethel: I'd love to, but it'd fly really screwy with two aboard. And one doesn't want to make a bad impression on one's first day. Does one?
      Mildred: No. Thanks a lot.

    • Miss Cackle: Well, spells are not like potions, you know. They're an art. Someone once defined flying as falling but missing the ground.

    • Mildred: Who's ever heard of a witch afraid of heights?
      Maud: There's bound to have been one.
      Mildred: I'll bet she wasn't afraid of the dark, as well. It's no use. I'm dead wood. I'm bound to be on the next bus home.

    • Mildred: It's a witch school, isn't it? Why can't they magic us a decent breakfast?
      (girls voice agreement)
      Miss Hardbroom: Because, Mildred Hubble, modern witchcraft is a serious professional business, and not to be used for serious and trivial ends.
      Mildred: No, Miss Hardbroom.

    • Miss Cackle: Look at their little faces, Miss Hardbroom. Such hope, such wide-eyed innocence, such glorious expectation.
      Miss Hardbroom: Yes, Headmistress.
      Miss Cackle: We must open our doors and our hearts, Miss Hardbroom. We must welcome the best of the new whilst reserving all of our traditional customs.
      Miss Hardbroom: And standards.
      Miss Cackle: Yes, Miss Hardbroom.
      Miss Hardbroom: And discipline.
      Miss Cackle: Well, of course.
