Harry: You'd like a dragon?
Hagrid: Vastly misunderstood beasts, Harry. Vastly misunderstood.

Mr. Ollivander: Curious... very curious...
Harry: Excuse me, sir, but what's curious?
Mr. Ollivander: I remember every wand I've ever sold, Mr. Potter. It just so happens that the phoenix whose tailfeather resides in your wand gave another... just one other. It is curious that you should be destined for this wand... when its brother gave you that scar.
Harry: [puts a hand to his forehead] And who owned that wand?
Mr. Ollivander: We do not speak his name! The wand chooses the wizard, Mr. Potter. It's not always clear why. But I think it is clear that we can expect great things from you. After all, He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named did great things. Terrible! Yes. But great.

Dumbledore: Harry, do you know why it is that Professor Quirrell could not bear to have you touch him?

Harry: And what is that?
Dumbledore: Love, Harry. Love.

Professor Severus Snape: You ought to be more careful. People with think you're...
[sees Harry staring at him]
Professor Severus Snape: up... to something.

Honestly, don't you two read?


I'm half and half. Dad's a muggle, Mam's a witch. Bit of a nasty shock for him when he found out.

[explaining how to get past Fluffy] You just play a bit of music and he'll fall right to sleep... I shouldn't have told you that!


Hermione: Harry, no way! You heard what Madame Hooch said, besides, you don't even know how to fly!
[Harry ignores Hermione, giving Malfoy an evil look, he flies up. The class stare up at him]
Hermione: What an idiot!

Hermione: Ron, you don't suppose this is going to be like . . real wizard's chess, do you?

Ron: Yes, Hermione, I think this is going to be exactly like wizard's chess.
