George: "— that's blackmail, that is, we could get into a lot of trouble for that —"
Fred: "— we've tried being polite; it's time to play dirty, like him. He wouldn't like the Ministry of Magic knowing what he did —"
George: " I'm telling you, if you put that in writing, it's blackmail!"
Fred: "Yeah, and you won't be complaining if we get a nice fat payoff, will you?"
