Sirius: Mother, you’ve got to stop starting conversations like that.
Sirius: I think the reason you and I always fight is that ever since we were little, Father always played us off each other.

Walburga: I love all my children equally.

Walburga: I don’t care for Sirius.
Sirius: Come on, Bellatrix! We’ve had some good times, haven’t we?
