  • Porpentina Goldstein: Mr. Scamander, do you know anything about the wizarding community in America?

    Newt Scamander: I do know a few things, actually. I know you have rather backwards laws about relations with non-magic people. That you're not meant to befriend them, that you can't marry them, which seems mildly absurd to me.

  • Porpentina Goldstein: And you were just in Equatorial Guinea?

    Newt Scamander: I've just completed a year in the field. I'm writing a book about magical creatures.

    Newt Scamander: Slight problem is that, um, he's invisible.

    Porpentina Goldstein: Invisible?

    Newt Scamander: Yes. Most of the time. He does, um...

    Porpentina Goldstein: How do you catch something...

    Newt Scamander: With immense difficulty.

  • Porpentina Goldstein: Madam President, I'm sorry to interrupt, but this is critical.

    Porpentina Goldstein: Yes, I do. Ma'am, yesterday a wizard entered New York with a case. This case

    [gestures at case]

    Porpentina Goldstein: full of magical creatures and unfortunately some have escaped.

    Seraphina Picquery: He arrived yesterday?

    [Tina nods]

    Seraphina Picquery: You've known for twenty-fours that an unregistered wizard set magical beasts loose in New York, and you see fit to tell us only when a man has been killed?

    Porpentina Goldstein: Who's been killed?

    Seraphina Picquery: Where is this man?

    [Tina sets case down and knocks]

  • Newt Scamander: You can tell me to mind my business, but I saw something in that death potion back there. I saw you hugging that Second Salem boy.

    Porpentina Goldstein: His name's Credence. His mother beats him. She beats all those kids she's adopted, but she seems to hate him the most.

    Newt Scamander: And she was the No-Maj you attacked?

    Porpentina Goldstein: That's how I lost my job. I went for her in front of a meeting of her crazy followers. They all had to be Obliviated. It was a big scandal.

  • Porpentina Goldstein: [Newt prepares to wipe Jacob's memory] You can't Obliviate him. We need him as a witness.

    Newt Scamander: I'm sorry, you just yelled at me the length of New York for not doing it in the first place.
