Keep the Witch Gagged? Spells with only Verbal Components in Pathfinder

Our party has not been having good luck. Four little sisters of various party members are dead, and a fifth is now a captive, having gone insane and become a baby-eating witch under the control of a Hag. As we debate what to do with her, the question was asked, “Should we keep the gag on her?” Here’s the answer. Below is a list of witch spells that only require verbal components. A couple of these (Contact Other Plane, Geast/Quest) take too long for her to cast if the guard is paying attention, but most take only one standard action. So yes, we need to keep the gag on. If she is 7th level, she could actually Dimension Door away even if she was all tied up. Good to know.
