Or at least so he thinks until Malfoy knocks over his potion sample and Snape is all too happy to just leave Malfoy off the hook.

* Inverted in an episode of ''Series/{{Scrubs}}''. Jordan gets angry at Dr. Cox, but instead of giving him the silent treatment (because she knows he would actually ''enjoy'' that), she chooses to talk to him non-stop.
