Favorite Quotes

*waves* I followed the link through the H/G community and thought we could start off here with a favorite quotes discussion.

Even though this is a Deathly Hallows discussion community, I'll put mine behind a cut, just incase people are reading flists and such =]



I literally laughed out loud when I read this...

"Pathetic," he told George. "Pathetic! With the whole wide world of ear-related humor before you, you go for holey?
-Fred Weasley, Deathly Hallows, chapter 5, page 75

Trust Fred and George to make light of losing an ear, right?

I like Ron's 'Merlin's baggy Y-fronts...' (we all knew he wore Y-fronts anyway)

I like young James Potter's 'Mum, I can't give a professor love!... I can't walk into Herbology and give him love'

And finally, a classic (already): "Of course its happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?"

I'm sure I'll unearth more wonderful quotes as I re-read it but those are my faves off the top of my head.

Hermione's "Merlins Pants!" is gotta be destined to become a classic!

"Have you seen my grandson?"
"He's fighting." Said Harry.
"Naturally," said the old lady proudly. "Excuse me, I must go assist him."

*Love it!*

"Has anyone ever tried sticking a sword in Voldemort?

Mrs Longbottom totally kicks ass! In previous books I thought she was a bit underappreciative of Neville but you can totally see where he gets his fighting spirit from.

I always saw her as a stressed out grandma. She had raised her son and instead of losing him it was almost like she had to raise her son again while she also raised her grandson.

I love that they finally show that she loved him and was there fighting alongside him.

I saw it more like Mrs Longbottom missed her son and saw Neville as not really matching up to how good a wizard his father was. Neville's always been clumsy and not the brightest and I think his confidence was squashed a bit by his gran not thinking he was good enough.

I do agree with you that she did compare him to his father and he was rather clumsy as he was young. And hearing all the stories about how amazing his parents were is a lot to live up to. I think my thoughts about her comes with after working with people that have had head traumas and what happens to them and their families. Seeing wives or mothers that have to take care of the person that was injured and also a child sometimes it was like them trying to take care of two children and just the stress it causes. I can see that she wanted Neville to be just like his dad and was a bit disappointed when he was not. Does any of this make any sense?

Yes, I get what you mean. I think actually, Neville hearing about how great his parents were from his gran all the time made him work harder to be better (especially in book 5). In the end, he was like his parents and was willing to die for what was right- as we can see in the final scene where he steps forward out of the crowd and faces Voldemort alone. I actually think that Neville is one of the bravest and best characters in the entire series.

So true! Even from book one. When he stands up to his friends and tells them that they can't leave. Then the whole scene at the end. "I'll join you when hell freezes over."

Like the icon says Neville is made of Awesome!

Thanks!!! I have LOVED Neville since book 1. (I think I identified with him in a lot of ways.) And to watch him come into his own through out the books and in the last one defying Voldemort to his face, well it was to me better than half the books!

I've always loved Neville, too. My first attempt at fanfiction was a Neville-centric story. It was horrible *shakes head*

Neville's story in the end was better than I could've hoped for. I reckon Jo should now write a book called 'Neville Longbottom and his totally kickassness'. The story going on at Hogwarts throughout the book fascinates me- this kid who has always been in the background is suddenly the lead rebel! At least Jo's left us something to write fanfic about!

I like Krum's line:

"What's the point of being an international Quidditch player if all the good-looking girls are taken?"

and "He can move faster than Severus Snape confronted with shampoo."

I loved Potterwatch (that's what it was called, right? I don't have my book with me). Pretty much all the quotes from that part were amazing =]

OHHH MAN I laughed SO hard at the second quote when I read it. I was on an airplane and people were looking at me like 'wtf?' haha but I don't care.

I completely forgot about the Snape's shampoo quote- and its one of the best in the entire series! Shampoo...Snape...what's not to love? The Potterwatch stuff was just jam packed with wonderful quotes!
