Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire - Who Said What?
On page 503, in the chapter "The Dream" where Harry goes to Dumbledore's office and stops outside because Moody, Fudge, and Dumbledore are talking, it says:
(Fudge) "Dumbledore, you know what that woman IS?"
"I consider her to be a very able Head-mistress- and an excellent dancer,' said Dumbledore quietly.
"Dumbledore, come!" said Crouch angrily. Then, in reply, Dumbledore says "I think it is possible that it is you who are prejudiced, Cornelius."
But Crouch wasn't there in the first place! He was at his house, or perhaps by then he had run away, but he was NOT in Dumbledore's office. Anyways, if this has been corrected in other books, feel free to post, but I noticed it in mine and it wasn't on here so I thought I'd add it.

I got my copy the day the book came out, therefore it is a first edition. It says Fudge, not Crouch. Also, this dialogue takes place on page 580 in the American edition, just so Americans can check.

Mine says "fudge". It was probably edited before it came out as the American edition.

In the Australian hardback copy, I noticed it said "Crouch" too. I'm a big fan of J.K. Rowling's books, but there are so many slip-ups in the first 5- at least two in each! With all the publicity these books get, and the amount of copies that are sold, you'd think Rowling would be able to afford a thorough editor.

In the British hardback, the slip up is there. My copy was the first edition and I think that it has been altered for the others now.

The first comment was right. My book too says this error and the reason for this is that both I and the original submitter have the English first edition which did not last too long when this and another two errors were found. I beleived most were recalled and pulped and the second release put on the shelves very quickly. Some of us were lucky enough to get these rare copies, whilst everyone else can at least enjoy the story the way it was meant to be.

It's a slip up in the Aussie one too. It says "'Dumbledore, come!' said Crouch angrily." Its obviously meant to be Fudge coz Moody buts in when Dumbledore replies, asking them to wrap it up. This has got to be the worst book i've read in terms of mistakes! But i still love it!

Yeah, in my book it was Fudge, not Crouch. And if J.K.R. did say Crouch instead of Moody it would have been too confusing to the readers, so yeah.

Well, we know that Mad-Eye Moody is really Crouch in disguise, so maybe this is a clue for the discerning reader.

Your getting in a muddle - he said cornelius - FUDGES first name. Crouch's first name is BARTY! So crouch wasn't there - just cornelius fudge. There.
