Dougal... settle down now, please.
Newt Scamander: It won't be long.
When the Immigration Officer in New York demands to see the contents of Newt's case, Newt activates a "Muggle Worthy" mechanism that hides the case's magical contents. When the officer opens the case, everything looks neatly arrayed as if Newt had just packed it--despite the fact that Newt had held the case vertically until he set it on the inspection table. An Immigration Officer would be accustomed to seeing the loose contents of a case that was held vertically having slid down to the bottom (now back) of the case--especially heavier items such as a watch or a magnifying glass.
An occamy slithers into the film title to form the S in "Beasts".
