- “The Niffler, a small, furry black cross between a mole and a duck-billed platypus.”
- “No. A guide to help people understand why we should be protecting these creatures instead of killing them.”
- “Its sight operates on probability, so it can foresee the most likely immediate future.”
- “Young wizards and witches sometimes tried to suppress their magic to avoid persecution. Instead of learning to harness or to control their powers, they developed what was called an Obscurus.”
- “He puts on an earnest, trustworthy expression as, from his pocket, he produces a chain bearing the symbol of the Deathly Hallows.”
- “MARY LOU Are you a seeker? A seeker after truth? A beat. NEWT I’m more of a chaser, really.”
- “To expose wizardkind. To provoke war between the magical and non-magical worlds.”
- “Slowly the Thunderbird calms itself, lowering down to stand on a large rock in front of Newt. As it does, the rain dies down and is replaced by a brilliant, hot sunshine.”
- “She reads his mind and her expression changes to one of wonderment and tenderness as she sees what he went through in the war. Queenie is moved and appalled. Very slowly, she raises a hand and touches his cheek.”
