Here's another one from Blackadder:
Draco Sinister chapter four:
"Are you threatening me?" said the demon in a hissing voice.
"So it can hurt you," said Draco, sounding pleased.
"You can't be certain," the demon said, looking shifty.
"No, it's just a wild stab in the dark. Which is what you'll be getting in about one minute if you don't start being a bit more helpful."
Blackadder II, episode one, Bells
Crone: Two things, my lord, must thee know of the Wisewoman. First, she is ... a woman,
and second, she is ...
Edmund: .. wise?
Crone: You do know her then?
Edmund: No, just a wild stab in the dark which is incidentally what you'll be getting if you
don't start being a bit more helpful. Do you know where she lives?

When I first read this I had not yet discovered Blackadder and so when I heard it in there I was quite surprised, but read her disclaimer about hoarding quotes so was not too bothered. Probably because I didn't know the full scale of what was going on.
It's odd, when I first started writing (godawful) fanfic when I was fifteen (not in HP, in a band fandom) (I no longer do, I'm more of a lurker) I thought it was OK to include quotes from your favourite shows because she did and she was so well-liked and nobody seemed to be telling her off about it. So I did it too. I wonder if there are other
Hope this helps.
