What's up with the quote after Are You Sure You Can Drive This Thing?? Is it an actual quote from the book? I can't find it anywhere. If it's just something created by a troper, should it instead be taken out of quotes and changed more to something like: No, Ron and Harry can't really manage Mr. Weasley's flying car, but they're far too anxious to consider another plan.

Agreed. The quote doesn't come from anywhere, and it should be rephrased as you suggest.

Artistic license: I don't know if I'm reading this wrong but I thought it worth pointin out that over here (Britain) fudge doesn't usually contain chocolate. Unless it's Chocolate Fudge.

Huh. Maybe it's a Separated by a Common Language thing, as in the US chocolate fudge is the default, with other types of fudge being unusual/noteworthy.

Ah, then it probably is. Fudge here is a vanilla* and clotted cream/ condensed milk sweet unless otherwise stated (so presumably that's what he gave the dog).
- which, just to confuse things further, means it contains vanilla, not (as I understand the American usage to indicate) that it is unflavoured.
