- Is she your old friend who is a chain smoker and never admits she stole my wallet last year? No, were not going to see her. Over my dead body.

Dialogue:
"Hello, Nick," said Harry.
"Hello, hello," said Nearly Headless Nick.
"You look troubled, young Potter," said Nick, folding a transparent letter.
"So do you," said Harry.
"Ah," Nearly Headless Nick waved an elegant hand, "a matter of no importance. . . . Its not as though I really wanted to join. . . . Thought Id apply, but apparently I dont fulfill requirements -"
"But you would think, wouldnt you," he said suddenly, "that getting hit forty-five times in the neck with a blunt axe would qualify you to join the Headless Hunt?"
"Oh - yes," said Harry, surprised.
"I mean, nobody wishes more that my head had come off properly, I mean, it would have saved me a great deal of pain and ridicule. However -" Nearly Headless Nick shook his letter open and read furiously: "We can only accept huntsmen whose heads have parted company with their bodies. It is with the greatest regret, therefore, that I must inform you that you do not fulfill our requirements. With very best wishes, Sir Patrick Delaney-Podmore."
Nearly Headless Nick took several deep breaths and then said, in a far calmer tone, "So - whats bothering you? Anything I can do?"
