- "The teachers were of course forbidden from mentioning the interview by Educational Decree Number Twenty-Six, but they found ways to express their feelings about it all the same. Professor Sprout awarded Gryffindor twenty points when Harry passed her a watering can; a beaming Professor Flitwick pressed a box of squeaking sugar mice on him at the end of Charms, said, 'Shh!' and hurried away; and Professor Trelawney broke into hysterical sobs during Divination and announced to the startled class, and a very disapproving Umbridge, that Harry was not going to suffer an early death after all, but would live to a ripe old age, become Minister for Magic and have twelve children."
- —Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
Sugar mice are a type of sweet in the Wizarding world shaped like mice that squeak and move. When Harry Potter stuck to his story about the return of Voldemort, Professor Flitwick rewarded him with a box of these.
