Harry Potter Quotes
Harry Potter: Did you know, sir? Then?
Albus Dumbledore: Did I know that I just met the most dangerous dark wizard of all time? No.
Every great wizard in history has started out as nothing more then what we are *now*. If they can do it, why not us?
[Ron raises his fist in agreement]
Dolores Umbridge: Let me make this quite plain. You have been told that a certain Dark Wizard is at large once again. This is a lie.
Harry Potter: It's not a lie! I saw him. I fought him.
Dolores Umbridge: [shouting] Detention, Mr. Potter!
Harry Potter: So according to you, Cedric Diggory dropped dead for his own cause.
Dolores Umbridge: Cedric Diggory's death was a tragic accident.
Harry Potter: [angrily] It was murder! Voldemort killed him! You must know!
Dolores Umbridge: [shouting] Enough!
Dolores Umbridge: Your previous instruction in this subject has been disturbingly uneven. But you will be pleased to know from now on, you will be following a carefully structured, Ministry-approved course of defensive magic. Yes?
Hermione Granger: There's nothing in here about using defensive spells.
Dolores Umbridge: Using spells? Ha ha! Well I can't imagine why you would need to use spells in my classroom.
Ron Weasley: We're not gonna use magic?
Dolores Umbridge: You will be learning about defensive spells in a secure, risk-free way.
Harry Potter: Well, what use is that? If we're gonna be attacked it won't be risk-free.
Dolores Umbridge: Students will raise their hands when they speak in my class.
Dolores Umbridge: It is the view of the Ministry that a theoretical knowledge will be sufficient to get you through your examinations, which after all, is what school is all about.
Harry Potter: And how is theory supposed to prepare us for what's out there?
Dolores Umbridge: There is nothing out there, dear! Who do you imagine would want to attack children like yourself?
Harry Potter: I don't know, maybe, Lord Voldemort!
Cho Chang: [in the room of requirement] Mistletoe.
Harry Potter: Probably full of nargles.
Cho Chang: What are nargles?
Harry Potter: No idea.
Hermione Granger: [Harry walks in, Hermione runs to him and hugs him] Oh, Harry!
[pause, she lets go]
Hermione Granger: Are you all right? We overheard them talking about the dementor attack. You must tell us everything.
Ron Weasley: Let the man breathe, Hermione.
Hermione Granger: And this hearing at the Ministry. It's just outrageous! I've looked it up, they simply can't expel you. It's completely unfair!
Harry Potter: There's a lot of that going around, Hermione. So what is this place?
Ron Weasley: Headquarters.
Hermione Granger: Of the Order of the Phoenix. It's a secret society. Dumbledore formed it back when they first fought You-Know-Who.
Harry Potter: You couldn't have put this in a letter, I suppose. I've gone all summer without a scrap of news.
Ron Weasley: We wanted to tell you, mate. Really, we did. Only...
Harry Potter: Only what?
Hermione Granger: Only Dumbledore made us swear that we wouldn't tell you anything.
Harry Potter: [pause] Dumbledore said that? But why would he want to keep me in the dark? Maybe I could help. After all, I'm the one who saw Voldemort return, I'm the one who faught him, I'm the one who saw Cedric Diggory get killed!
Harry Potter: First we need to find a place to practise that Umbridge won't find out.
Ginny Weasley: The Shrieking Shack?
Harry Potter: That's too small.
Hermione Granger: The Forbidden Forest?
Ron Weasley: Not bloody likely!
Ginny Weasley: Harry, what happens if Umbridge does find out?
Hermione Granger: Who cares... I mean it's sort of exciting isn't it... breaking the rules.
Ron Weasley: Who are you and what have you done with Hermione Granger?
Harry Potter: This connection between me and Voldemort, what if the reason for it is that Iâ€™m becoming more like him. I just feel so angry, all the time. And what if after everything Iâ€™ve been through, somethingâ€™s gone wrong inside me. What if Iâ€™m becoming bad.
Sirius Black: I want you to listen to me very carefully Harry. Youâ€™re not a bad person. Youâ€™re a very good person, who bad things have happened to. You understand?
[Harry nods his head]
Sirius Black: Besides, the world isn't split into good people and death eaters. We have all got both light and dark inside us. What matters is the power we chose to act on. Thatâ€™s who we really are.
Dolores Umbridge: [Harry has come in to do his detention] You're going to be doing some lines for me, Mr. Potter.
[Potter opens his bag for his quill but Umbridge stops him]
Dolores Umbridge: No, not with your quill. You're going to be using a rather special one of mine. Now, I want you to write "I must not tell lies."
Harry Potter: How many times?
Dolores Umbridge: Let's see... As long as it takes for the message to sink in.
Harry Potter: You haven't given me any ink.
Dolores Umbridge: Oh, you won't need any ink.
Harry Potter: We need somewhere, where we can practise spells.
Ginny Weasley: The shrieking shack?
Harry Potter: No that's too small.
Ginny Weasley: Harry, what happens if we do get caught?
Hermione Granger: Who cares? It's kind of exciting isn't it? Breaking the rules...
Ron Weasley: Who are you and what have you done to Hermione Granger?
Hermione Granger: Anyways, at least one good thing happened today.
Harry Potter: Oh yeah, and what's that?
Hermione Granger: Cho couldn't keep her eyes off you could she?
We've got something he doesnâ€™t have. We've got something worth fighting for.
Hermione Granger: So what was it like?
[speaking about Harry's kiss]
Harry Potter: Kind of wet.
Hermione Granger: Well, she has been crying a lot lately...
Ron Weasley: Well, you'd think a bit of snogging would make her happy
