Harry Potter Quotes
We've got to be able to defend ourselves, and if Umbridge refuses to teach us how, we need someone who will.Hermione Granger
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.

[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!
Are we forming some sort of wizard army?Ron Weasley

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?
Severus Snape: [to Harry] In the past it was often of the Dark Lords pleasure to invade the minds of his victims, creating visions designed to torture them into madness, only extracting the last exquisite ounce of agony, only when he had them beging for death would he finally... kill them. Used properly the power of Occlumency will sheild you from access or influence. In these lessons, I will attempt to penetrate your mind, you will attempt to resist. Perpare yourself!
[Harry sits up. Snape raises wand]
Severus Snape: Legilimens!
Harry Potter... You will lose... everything.Lord Voldemort
Severus Snape: You won't last two seconds if he invades your mind.
Harry Potter: I'm not weak!
Severus Snape: Then prove it!
