I almost wanted to use the line "Fight! Fight! Call the prefects!", but I think that only sticks in my consciousness from a single appearance on some semi-obscure Australian comedy show many years ago. It's stayed in my mind all these years as being hilarious, but I doubt there'd be more than one or two other people who'd get the reference, and if you don't get the reference it stands out badly as an odd line.

Of course fights like this were always broken up by the appearance of a teacher...

2018-05-13 Rerun commentary: Hmm. I just Googled "Fight! Fight! Call the prefects!" to see where else it has been used.

Number of hits: 1 (this very comic)

And for anyone who doesn't know, yes, schools in Australia and the UK have prefects, just like at Hogwarts. It's a real thing, not something J.K. Rowling made up. Wikipedia says they're mostly in independent/private schools in the UK, but in Australia they're common in public/state schools too.
