** George also mentions that he feels he and Fred should have gotten E's (Exceeds Expectations) on every exam just for the fact they showed up (which admittedly ''would'' have exceeded most people's expectations of them).

* After Dumbledore makes his explosive escape from right under Fudge's nose, Kingsley Shacklebolt says what everyone is thinking.
--> '''Shacklebolt:''' Woah. You may not like it, Minister, but you can't deny, Dumbledore's got ''style''."

* When they sneak in to the Ministry of Magic to save Sirius, they all get name tags saying "Rescue Mission". It gets even better as it's ambiguous whether or not they put them on, so if you want you can picture them wearing ''name tags'' throughout the ensuing battle. [[CloudCuckooLander Luna Lovegood]] was there. She almost certainly put hers on.

At least, if she somehow got it away from Harry - the book does say that Hermione scooped them all up and gave them to Harry.

** And Hermione gets another good line in as Ron prepares to make a promise.
--> '''Ron:''' If I'm ever rude to you again--

Added DiffLines:

* Poor Hannah Abbott has such a stressful time going into exams. It's a RunningGag how stressed she is, and it pays off in the news of the Transfiguration exam - where Hannah apparently panics and multiplies her ferret into a flock of flamingos. The exam is reportedly shut down for several minutes while the teachers try to round the birds up.

** Just to take this to its logical conclusion, the list of "competent teachers" includes [[Literature/PrisonerOfAzkaban A werewolf]], [[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheSorcerersStone Not one]] [[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheGobletOfFire but TWO]] separate [[TheMole Moles]] for Voldemort, and [[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheChamberOfSecrets Gilderoy Lockhart]]. All of which, [=McGonagall=] insinuates, are better for the job than her.

** For added fun (and perhaps even irony) one of those very same teachers was a [[spoiler: spy for Voldemort]]. Another was a werewolf (which Umbridge hates).
** This must be take to the logical conclusion: A werewolf might be an insult to her racial sensibilities, but this is a list that also includes Gilderoy Lockhart, a man who was a blithering idiot who knew nothing about the job before he self-inflicted [[LaserGuidedKarma Laser Guided Karma]] [[LaserGuidedAmnesia and Amnesia]] on himself. The true insult is that Umbridge is [[TakeThat less competent than Lockhart!]]

* Harry is steamed at being sent see Professor [=McGonagall=] in her office by Umbridge and has the misfortune to encounter Peeves.
-->'''Peeves''': Ooh, crackpot's feeling cranky! What is it this time, my fine Potty friend? Hearing voices? Seeing visions? Speaking in... Tongues? ''Oh, most think he's barking, the potty we lad, but some are more kindly and think he's just sad, but Peevsy knows better and says that he's mad!''

* Two particularly hilarious dreams: Before Harry has his out-of-body experience in Nagini attacking Arthur, he dreams Cho is angry at him for luring her to the DA under false pretenses by promising her 150 Chocolate Frog Cards: "Cedric gave me loads of Chocolate Frog Cards, look!" Then she becomes Hermione who says he did promise Cho and suggests he should give her his Firebolt, but Umbridge has it and he just came to the DA to put up Christmas ornaments shaped like Dobby's head… The second dream involves him watching Neville and Professor Sprout waltzing in the Room of Requirement while [=McGonagall=] plays the bagpipes. This is ''not'' out of character for [=McGonagall=] either, as she is Scottish and, according to Pottermore, made her father's bagpipes play on their own as a baby!
