in this section you'll find the best trio moments in the books and movies, along with quotes. if there are any quotes that you feel we should include in this list, let us know through the tagboard or via email.
harry accepts to duel malfoy, and chooses ron as his second. harry's a little doubtful of his magical abilities.

what happens if i wave my wand and nothing happens?
throw it away and punch him on the nose.

hermione & ron try to convince harry to forget about the quidditch match, in fear that snape will try to kill him.

don't play.
say you're ill.
pretend to break you leg.
really break your leg.

the three reach gryffindor tower after meeting fluffy for the first time.

now, if you two don't mind, i'm going to bed before either of you come up with another clever idea to get us killed. or worse, expelled.
she needs to sort out her priorities.

the trio make it past the trap door and a few other rooms, but then find themselves trapped by an evil plant.

i've read about these! it's the devil's snare! you have to relax, if you don't it'll only kill you faster.
faster? oh, now i can relax!

the trio ask hagrid about his three-headed dog.

that thing has a name?!

hermione hugs harry as he's about to go off and confront voldemort, and she gets left behind due to the potions task.

me! books! and cleverness! there are more important things-- friendship and bravery and-- oh Harry-- be careful!

how the three of them became friends in the first place.

there are some things you can't share without ending up liking each other, and knocking out a twelve-foot mountain troll is one of them.
ron and harry miss the hogwarts express and steal arthur's flying car in order to get the hogwarts. when they arrive, they crash into the whomping willow.

can you believe our luck? of all the trees we could've hit, we had to get one that hits back.

harry tells ron and hermione that dobby enchanted the bludger to discourage him and make him leave hogwarts.

you know what, harry? if he doesn't stop trying to save your life he's going to kill you.

hermione explains to the boys her polyjuice potion plan.

have you ever heard of a plan where so many things could go wrong?

hermione ditches harry & ron to go and do some research.

but why's she got to go to the library?
because that's what hermione does. when in doubt, go to the library.

ron doesn't like the instructions hagrid leaves them, so they can go figure out what's wrong in the forbidden forest.

why spiders? why couldn't it be 'follow the butterflies'?

ron teases harry about his popularity.

you'd better hope creevey doesn't meet ginny, or they'll be starting a harry potter fan club.
some of ron & hermione's famous bickering.

have either of you seen my copy of numerology and gramatica?
oh, yeah, i borrowed it for a bit of bedtime reading.
the trio watch as their visitors from beauxbatons interact with other students. hermione pays special attention to their food.

bless you.

ron can't believe hermione when she says she already has a date to the yule ball.

just because it's taken you three years to notice, ron, doesn't mean no one else has spotted i'm a girl!

ron explains to hermione his requirements on a date for the yule ball.

oh i see. so basically, you're going to take the best-looking girl who'll have you, even if she's completely horrible?
er, yeah, that sounds about right.
harry & ron are discussing what to write for their "dream diary" divination homework.

well, i had one that i was playing quidditch the other night. what do you think that means?
probably that you're going to be eaten by a giant marshmallow or something.

hermione explains cho's mixed-up feelings to the boys. ron doesn't get it.

just because you've got the emotional range of a teaspoon doesn't mean we all have.

hermione explains to harry just how he should've broken the news to cho that he had to cut their date short because he needed to meet hermione afterwards.

it might have been a good idea to mention how ugly you think i am too.
but i don't think you're ugly.
harry, you're worse than ron...

harry and ron turn to hermione for advice on girls.

you should write a book, translating mad things girls do so boys can understand them.

harry reminds hermione that quidditch is not her forte.

hermione, you're good on feelings and stuff, but you just don't understand about quidditch.
maybe not, but at least my happiness doesn't depend on ron's goalkeeping ability.

hermione suggests the idea for dumbledore's army. harry doesn't feel he'll be able to do it.

you know what, i'm not sure i want someone this stupid teaching me.

hermione helps the boys out in their astronomy class, by correcting their essays.

harry, yours is okay except for this bit at the end, i think you must have misheard professor sinistra, europa's covered in ice, not mice.

the trio discusses how awful umbridge is.

you know, i was just saying to ron when you came in... we've got to do something about her.
i suggested poison.

hermione enforces the idea that they need to rebel against umbridge and her oppression.

But this is much more important than homework!
harry and ron goggled at her.

ron and harry are tired of how pointless the divination class is.

i don't care if my tealeaves spell 'die, ron, die'-- i'm just chucking them in the bin where they belong.

ron tries to get hermione's attention while she outlines harry's finer points.

it's not quidditch that's popular, it's you! you've never been more interesting, and frankly, you've never been more fanciable.
ron gagged on a large piece of kipper. hermione spared him a look of disdain before turning back to harry.

you can still see the marks on the back of your hand where that evil woman made you write with your own blood, but you stuck to your story anyway...
(shaking back his sleeves) you can still see where those brains got hold of me in the ministry, look.
(ignoring ron) and it doesn't hurt that you've grown about a foot over the summer either.
(inconsequentially) i'm tall.

hermione checks over one of ron's essays and asks him what quill he's been using.

it's one of fred and george's spell-check ones... but i think the charm must be wearing off...
(pointing at the title of his essay) yes, it must, because we were asked how we'd deal with dementors, not 'dugbogs,' and i don't remember you changing your name to 'roonil wazlib' either.
(staring horror-struck at the parchment) ah, no! don't say I'll have to write the whole thing out again!
(pulling the essay toward her and taking out her wand) it's okay, we can fix it.
(sinking back in his chair, rubbing his eyes wearily) i love you, hermione.
(turning faintly pink) don't let lavender hear you saying that.

ron and hermione promise to accompany harry on his quest to destroy the horcruxes.

we'll be there, harry.
at your aunt and uncle's house. and then we'll go with you wherever you're going.
(quickly) no--
[harry] had not counted on this, he had meant them to understand that he was undertaking this most dangerous journey alone.
(quietly) you said to us once before that there was time to turn back if we wanted to. we've had time, haven't we?
we're with you whatever happens.
a few members of the order, including ron & hermione, take polyjuice potion to morph into harry's likeness. hermione is reminded of their similar adventure in second year.
ooh, you look much tastier than crabbe and goyle, harry.

the trio runs from the burrow after it is attacked. they run into an all-night cafe. hermione seems to have taken care of everything they should need, including clothing. ron complains about his wand.
it's no wonder i can't get it out, hermione, you packed my old jeans, they're tight.
(hissing) oh, i'm so sorry.
as she dragged the waitress out of sight of the windows, harry heard her mutter a suggestion as to where ron could stick his wand instead.

ron is worried about what might've happened to a family after he used the father's identity to disguise himself in their break-in to the ministry.
blimey, i hope they escaped. [...] i didn't get the feeling reg cattermole was all that quick-witted, though, the way everyone was talking to me when i was him. god, i hope they made it... if they both end up in azkaban because of us...

hermione was watching ron fret over the fate of the cattermoles, and there was such tenderness in her expression that harry felt almost as if he had surprised her in the act of kissing him.

ron and harry get into a fight, and ron announces he's leaving. hermione tells him she'll stay with harry.
i get it. you choose him.

hermione explains to harry that it makes sense that dumbledore had left him gryffindor's sword with bathilda bagshot, in godric's hollow.
i mean, godric's hollow is godric gryffindor's birthplace--
really? gryffindor came form godric's hollow?
harry, did you ever even open a history of magic?
(smiling for what felt like the first time in months: the muscles in his face feel oddly stiff) erm, i might've opened it, you know, when i bought it... just the once...
well, as the village is named after him i'd have thought you might have made the connection.
she sounded much more like her old self than she had done of late; harry half expected her to announce that she was off to the library.

harry reassures ron that he's been forgiven for leaving him and hermione, and that they're still best friends.
he knew what he was doing when he gave me the deluminator, didn't he? he-- well, he must've known I'd run out on you.
ron's ears turned bright red and he became engrossed in a tuft of grass at his feet, which he prodded with his toe.
(correcting him) no, he must've known you'd always want to come back.

xenophilius lovegood tells the trio about the deathly hallows. harry doesn't fully understand. ron can't help but intervene with jokes. hermione doesn't like the interruptions.
death's got an invisibility cloak?
so he can sneak up on people. sometimes he gets bored of running at them, flapping his arms and shrieking... sorry, hermione.

after hearing the story of the deathly hallows, each of them reach their own conclusion, showing just how different they really are.
it's just a morality tale, it's obvious which gift is best, which one you'd choose--
the three of them spoke at the same time.
the cloak.
the wand.
the stone.
they looked at each other, half surprised, half amused.

harry meets up with hermione & ron, and learns that they've destroyed another horcrux in the chamber of secrets.
(staring from the fangs to ron) but how did you get in there? you need to speak parseltongue!
(whispering) he did! show him, ron!
ron made a horrible strangled hissing noise.
(apologetically) it's what you did to open the locket. i had to have a few goes to get it right, but (shrugging modestly) we got there in the end.
he was amazing! amazing!

the trio are going out to fight, when ron remembers something that will shake hermione's heart.
(sharply) hang on a moment! we've forgotten someone!
the house-elves, they'll all be down in the kitchen, won't they?
you mean we ought to get them fighting?
(seriously) no, i mean we should tell them to get out. we don't want any more Dobbies, do we? we can't order them to die for us--
there was a clatter as the basilisk fangs cascaded out of hermione's arms. running at ron, she flung them around his neck and kissed him full on the mouth. ron threw away the fangs and broomstick he was holding and responded with such enthusiasm that he lifted hermione off her feet.
(weakly) is this the moment?
when nothing happened except that ron and hermione gripped each other still more firmly and swayed on the spot, he raised his voice.
oi! there's a war going on here!

the trio run towards the whomping willow, because voldemort is hiding in the shrieking shack.
i can-- see the place-- if we just had-- crookshanks again--
(wheezing, bent double, clutching her chest) crookshanks? are you a wizard, or what?

before entering the shrieking shack, harry doubts if he should be leading hermione & ron to danger with him.
(pushing harry forward) harry, we're coming, just get in there!

after harry has finally defeated voldemort, his friends rush to him in absolute happiness.
the fierce new sun dazzled the windows as they thundered toward him, and the first to reach him were ron and hermione, and it was their arms that that were wrapped around him, their incomprehensible shouts that deafened him.
