Newt Scamander: "Well, there are no strange creatures —"
Leta Lestrange: "'— only blinkered people'. How long did you get in detention for saying that to Prendergast?"
Newt Scamander: "You know, I think it was a month that time."
Leta Lestrange: "And I set off a Dungbomb under his desk so I could join you, do you remember?"

Prendergast was a British wizard who worked at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in around the 1910s. He once gave Newton Scamander a month's worth of detention for arguing that there are no strange creatures, just blinkered people. Leta Lestrange later set off a dungbomb under Prendergast's desk so she could join Newt in detention.[2]
