Q. Your broomstick was equipped with the standard “cushioning charm,” correct?
A. I wouldn’t say “standard.” This was a Nimbus 2001 – the best broomstick around.
Q. So it had the best “cushioning charm” around, right? Went off automatically?
A. Of course.
Q. But you lurched forward at the end of your fall. You must have overridden the charm?
A. Prove it.
Q. Do you have any reason to believe your “best broomstick around” malfunctioned?
Q. And you said you were injured when you landed. That is the basis of your lawsuit. You did fall faster at the end than you expected?
A. I dunno.
Q. Isn’t it true that a skilled quidditch player almost always can safely land so long as the “cushioning charm” is triggered? Either you’re not a skilled quidditch player or—
A. Alright, alright. I fell faster than I was supped to.
