    Lot

    You lot = the whole lot of you?

    Doxy = a strange creature like a hornet?

    From Harry Potter:
    "Right, you lot, you need to be careful, because Doxys bite and their teeth are poisonous."

    Re: Lot

    Yes, you lot = all of you.

    A doxy used to be a prostitute, but I don't suppose Harry has those in mind-- perhaps as he grows older in the next book of the series. I would be careful of trying to use this word, NH-- it is familiar only to HP fans, and will likely die a quick death as the series palls on the public.
