I love unexpected moments of humor in very serious situations. I don't have my book to give the exact quote, but one that really stands out to me is the scene where Dumbledore asks Snape to kill him. Snape's response?:

"Would you like me to do it now? Or would you like to take a minute to write your epitaph?"

Now that I know they were on the same side, this line is just hilarious!




That's Snape's biting sarcasm -- it is quite funny once you know the ending! I wonder if I'll find any of his other sarcastic remarks funny when I go back to re-read the books...

In contrast, McGonagall's sarcastic wit was ALWAYS funny.

Yes, Pscyhee, I quite agree. I'll certainly see Snape in a different light as I reread the entire series...next summer.

Another line I can't believe hasn't been mentioned:

"Dumbledore's Army, Still Recruiting!"

Re: Favorite Quotes from DEATHLY HALLOWS

I loved Ginny and Harry's not so traditional commitment to each other. When Harry saw the Veela cousins.... Ginny coughed. I think my favorite was When Victor said "This girl is nice looking," recalling Harry to his surroundings. Krum was pointing at Ginny, who had just joined Luna. "she is also a relative of yours?"
"Yeah" said Harry, suddenly irritated "and she is seeing someone. Jealous type. Big bloke. You wouldn't want to cross him."

Re: Favorite Quotes from DEATHLY HALLOWS

I can't believe someone hasn't mentioned this yet. The BEST line by far was:

"Well, I don't know how to break this to you," said Ron, "but I think they MIGHT have noticed we broke into Gringotts."

Followed closely by this line:

"Albus Severus, you were named for two headmasters of Hogwarts. One of them was from Slytherin and he was probably the bravest man I ever knew." *sob*

I loved Snape!!!

Hermione: "Are you a wizard or not!"





This is a reference to the end of Book 1, when Harry and Ron are trapped by the Devil's Snare and Hermione comes to realize that fire will get rid of it. "But there's no wood..." she laments. Ron yell out, "Are you a wizard or not?"

I just love Ron.

Not really a fav quote but it was a favorite scene "Am I too late? Has it started? I only just found out, so I- I-" ~Percy Weasley cominng to join the fight (p.605)
And then "'I was an idiot, I was a pompous prat, I was a- a-' 'Ministry-loving, family-disowning, power-hungry moron,' said Fred. Percy swallowed. 'Yes, I was!'"(p.606)
I just like how Percy finally came back to the family and admitted to being everything Fred said


I loved that, too - Percy's return probably had me weeping more than anything except Dobby's death. And Fred's last words were about Percy's making a joke.

"How do you feel Georgie?" Whispered Mrs. Weasley.
George's fingers groped for the side of his head.
"Saintlike," he murmered.
"What's wrong with him?" Croaked Fred, looking terrified. "Is his mind affected?"
"Saintlike," repeated George, opening his eyes and looking up at his brother. "You see... I'm holy. HOLEY, Fred, geddit?"
Mrs Weasley sobbed harder than ever. Color flooded Fred's pale face.
"Pathetic." he told George. "Pathetic! With the whole wide world of ear-related humor before you, you go for HOLEY?"
"Ah well," Said George, grinning at his tear soaked mother. "You'll be able to tell us apart now, anyway, Mum."

The twins have always been my favorite characters, I still can't believe JK killed Fred...

Also I love the part when the Carrow spits on MM's face and Harry pulls of his cloak and says "You really shouldn't have done that. Crucio!"

I have to say this: he may be a git, but he is the bravest, smartest, funniest-when-he-wants-to-be git I've ever seen, in the real world or not.

Re: Favorite Quotes from DEATHLY HALLOWS

Look at the guy's childhood, that he could love somebody at all is kind of amazing to me, but he did. I don't think he's a git. Maybe we should move this git discussion to the off topic cafe. : )

Re: Favorite Quotes from DEATHLY HALLOWS

I think it's wonderful how everyone has been asking for so long whether Harry lives or dies, technically he does die but he lives as well! I think that is amazingly clever, even for JK Rowling who is the Queen of clever.

Snape was good. The reason I say this is: Throughout 7 books JK has put much emphasis on the power of the magic found in love, but none of the dark wizards could get to that power. The Malfoy's love of their son, Snape's love of Lily played huge roles in bringing the dark lord down. If Snape were evil he would not have has the capacity to love Lily. He didn't like Harry, he reminded him too much of that man who torchered him and stole his love, but he Loved Lily and cared very very much for Dumbledore as well.

Could very well be, either consciously or unconsciously. Ms. Rowling has admitted in interviews to being a Monty Python fan!

Re: Favorite Quotes from DEATHLY HALLOWS

Ron "We can't order them to die for us -" I am not so sure if it is the quote or what happens because of the quote either way it bears mentioning.

Narcissa "Is Draco alive? Is he in the castle?" ... "He is dead!"

George "Now let's get upstairs and fight, or all the good Death Eaters'll be taken."

"She sent me a letter,"..."telling me she was proud of me, that I'm my parents' son, and to keep it up." nothing is better than this. Neville has been trying to make his gran proud and live up to his parents legacy since book one and now he finally has I was so happy when I read that. Long live Neville Longbottom!!!
