'--yet sadly, accidental rudeness occurs alarmingly often," Dumbledore finished the sentence gravely.

--Harry Potter (Vernon Dursley & Dumbledore; HBP).

WHY ARE YOU WORRYING ABOUT YOU-KNOW-WHO? YOU SHOULDBE WORRYING ABOUT U-NO-POO-- THE CONSTIPATION SENSATION THAT'S GRIPPING THE NATION!
--Harry Potter (WWW ad; HBP).

''Harry Potter knows that he can confide in me with complete confidence,' I told them. 'I would rather die than betray his trust.'
'That's not saying much, seeing as you're already dead,' Ron observed.
'Once again, you show all the sensitivity of a blunt axe,' said Nearly Headless Nick in affronted tones.

--Harry Potter (Nearly Headless Nick & Ron; HBP).

'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...'
'You can still see where those brains got hold of me in the Ministry, look,' said Ron, shaking back his sleeves.
'And it doesn't hurt that you've grown about a foot over the summer either,' Hermione finished, ignoring Ron.
'I'm tall,' said Ron inconsequentially.

--Harry Potter (Ron tries to get Hermione's attention while she outlines Harry's finer points; HBP).

The third group had a pileup halfway around the pitch. Most of the fourth group had come without broomsticks. The fifth group were Hufflepuffs.
--Harry Potter (People who came to try out for the Gryffindor Quidditch Team; HBP).

Lupin burst out laughing. 'Sometimes you remind me a lot of James. He called it my 'furry little problem' in company. Many people were under the impression that i owned a badly behaved rabbit.'
--Harry Potter (Harry and Lupin talk about his lycanthropy; HBP).

But at that moment there was a loud squeal of 'Won-Won!' and Lavender Brown came hurtling out of nowhere and flung herself into Ron's arms.
--Harry Potter (Lav luvvs her Ronniekins; HBP).

'...but now that big Hufflepuff player's got the Quaffle from her, I can't remember his name, it's something like Bibble-- no, Buggins--'
'It's Cadwallader!' said Professor McGonagall loudly from beside Luna.

--Harry Potter (Luna comments the quidditch match; HBP).

'Nice commentary last match!' said Ron to Luna as she took back the green onion, the toadstool, and the cat litter. Luna smiled vaguely.
'You're making fun of me, aren't you?' she said. 'Everyone says I was dreadful.'
'No, I'm serious!' said Ron earnestly. 'I can't remember enjoying commentary more! What is this, by the way?' he added, holding the onionlike object up to eye level.
'Oh, it's a Gurdyroot,' she said, stuffing the cat litter and the toadstool back into her bag. 'You can keep it if you like, I've got a few of them. They're really excellent for warding off Gulping Plimpies.'
And she walked away, leaving Ron chortling, still clutching the Gurdyroot.
'You know, she's grown on me, Luna,' he said, as they set off again for the Great Hall. 'I know she's insane, but it's in a good--'
He stopped talking very suddenly.

--Harry Potter (Ron and Luna talk; HBP).

'It's one of Fred and George's Spell-Check ones... but I think the charm must be wearing off...'
'Yes, it must,' said Hermione, pointing at the title of his essay, '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.'
'Ah, no!' said Ron, staring horror-struck at the parchment. 'Don't say I'll have to write the whole thing out again!'
'It's okay, we can fix it,' said Hermione, pulling the essay toward her and taking out her wand.
'I love you, Hermione,' said Ron, sinking back in his chair, rubbing his eyes wearily.
Hermione turned faintly pink, but merely said, 'Don't let Lavender hear you saying that.'

--Harry Potter (Ron & Hermione work on an essay; HBP).

'Yes, indeed,' cried Slughorn a little thickly, 'Parry Otter, the Chosen Boy Who-- well-- something of that sort,' he mumbled, and drained his mug too.
--Harry Potter (Slughorn; HBP).

'This is the copy of Advanced Potion-Making that you purchased from Flourish and Blotts?'
'Yes,' said Harry firmly.
'Then why,' asked Snape, 'does it have the name 'Roonil Wazlib' written inside the front cover?'
Harry's heart missed a beat. 'That's my nickname,' he said.
'Your nickname,' repeated Snape.
'Yeah... that's what my friends call me,' said Harry.

--Harry Potter (Snape gives Harry the third degree; HBP).

'[Fleur]'s not that bad,' said Harry. 'Ugly, though,' he added hastily, as Ginny raised her eyebrows, and she let out a reluctant giggle.
--Harry Potter (Harry's whipped; HBP).

'We'll be there, Harry,' said Ron.
'What?'
'At your aunt and uncle's house,' said Ron. 'And then we'll go with you wherever you're going.'
'No--' said Harry quickly; he had not counted on this, he had meant them to understand that he was undertaking this most dangerous journey alone.
'You said to us once before,' said Hermione quietly, 'that there was time to turn back if we wanted to. We've had time, haven't we?'
'We're with you whatever happens,' said Ron.

--Harry Potter (The trio at the very end of HBP).

'Has Ron saved a goal yet?' asked Hermione...
'Well, he can do it if he doesn't think anyone's watching him,' said Fred, rolling his eyes. 'So all we have to do is ask the crowd to turn their backs and talk among themselves every time the Quaffle goes up his end on Saturday.'

--Harry Potter (Hermione & Fred talk about Ron; OotP).

Harry's eyes met Ron's. He knew that Ron was thinking exactly what he was: If he could have chosen any members of the D.A. in addition to himself, Ron and Hermione to join him in the attempt to rescue Sirius, he would not have picked Ginny, Neville, or Luna.
--Harry Potter (Harry gathers the troops; OotP).

The idea of a teenage Dumbledore was simply odd, like trying to imagine a stupid Hermione or a friendly Blast-Ended Skrewt.
--Harry Potter (Harry, after reading Dumbledore's obituary; DH ch. 2).

'Are you out of your mind?' demanded Harry. 'A plot to get this house? Are you actually as stupid as you look?'
[...]
'I've already got a house, my godfather left me one. So why would I want this one? All the happy memories?'

--Harry Potter (Harry argues with Vernon about them leaving; DH ch. 3).

'You claim,' said Uncle Vernon, starting to pace yet again, 'that this Lord Thing--'
--Harry Potter (Vernon's nicknames for Voldie; DH ch. 3).

'Know how to--? Of course I ruddy well know how to drive!' spluttered Uncle Vernon.
'Very clever of you, sir, very clever, I personally would be utterly bamboozled by all those buttons and knobs,' said Dedalus.

--Harry Potter (Vernon & Dedalus Diggle discuss muggle technology; DH ch. 3).

'They think I'm a waste of space, actually, but I'm used to--'
'I don't think you're a waste of space.'
[...]
'Well... er... thanks, Dudley.'
[...]
'You saved my life.'
'Not really,' said Harry. 'It was your soul the dementor would have taken...'

--Harry Potter (Duddykins wuvvs his widdle cousin; DH ch. 3).

Ooh, you look much tastier than Crabbe and Goyle, Harry.
--Harry Potter (Hermione, about Harry's Polyjuice Potion; DH ch. 4).

Fred and George turned to each other and said together, 'Wow-- we're identical!'
'I dunno, though, I think I'm still better looking,' said Fred, examining his reflection in the kettle.

--Harry Potter (After drinking Harry's Polyjuice; DH ch. 4).

'Arthur and Fred--'
'I'm George,' said the twin at whom Moody was pointing. 'Can't you even tell us apart when we're Harry?'
'Sorry, George--'
'I'm only yanking your wand, I'm Fred really--'

--Harry Potter (After being Polyjuiced; DH ch. 4).

Hermione turned and beamed at Harry; her eyes too were full of tears.
'...then I declare you bonded for life.'

--Harry Potter (As Fleur & Bill got married; DH ch. 8).

'She's great, isn't she?' said Ron admiringly. 'Always good value.'
--Harry Potter (About Luna, during the wedding reception; DH ch. 8).

'It's no wonder I can't get it out, Hermione, you packed my old jeans, they're tight.'
'Oh, I'm so sorry,' hissed Hermione, and 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.

--Harry Potter (DH ch. 9).

There was a little too much understanding in the smile Hermione gave him for Harry's liking.
--Harry Potter (DH ch. 10).

She read it, then clutched Harry's arm so tightly that he winced.
--Harry Potter (Harry and Hermione find R.A.B.; DH ch. 10).

'[...] Snape, headmaster! Snape in Dumbledore's study-- Merlin's pants!' she shrieked, making both Harry and Ron jump.
[...]
''Merlin's pants'?' repeated Ron, looking amused. 'She must be upset.'

--Harry Potter (DH ch. 12).

And what in the name of Merlin's most baggy Y Fronts was that about?
--Harry Potter (Ron to Hermione; DH ch. 12).

'Runcorn let me out, he attacked Umbridge and Yaxley, and he's told all of us to leave the country, I think we'd better do it, Reg, I really do, let's hurry home and fetch the children and-- why are you so wet?'
'Water,' muttered Ron, disengaging himself.

--Harry Potter (Ron is polyjuiced as a Ministry worker; DH ch. 13).

'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.

--Harry Potter (DH ch. 14).

I get it. You choose him.
--Harry Potter (Ron to Hermione about Harry; DH ch. 15).

'Well, the sword, Harry! Dumbledore must have known you'd want to go back there, and 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?'
'Erm,' he said, smiling for what felt like the first time in months: The muscles in his face felt oddly stiff. '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,' said Hermione. 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 Potter (DH ch. 16).

Perhaps Hermione knew how he was feeling, because she reached for his hand and took the lead for the first time, pulling him forward.
--Harry Potter (Harry & Hermione at Godric's Hollow; DH ch. 16).

Hermione had taken his hand again and was gripping it tightly. He could not look at her, but returned the pressure, now taking deep, sharp gulps of the night air, trying to steady himself, trying to regain control.
--Harry Potter (Harry & Hermione visit the graves of Harry's parents; DH ch. 16).

He put his arm around Hermione's shoulders, and she put hers around his waist, and they turned in silence and walked away through the snow, past Dumbledore's mother and sister, back toward the dark church and the out-of-sight kissing gate.
--Harry Potter (Harry & Hermione visit the graves of Harry's parents; DH ch. 16).

Hermione moved closer to him under the Cloak, her arm pressed against his.
'How does she know?'

--Harry Potter (Harry & Hermione encounter 'Bathilda'; DH ch. 17).

Even her ability to sense them suggested some Dumbledore-ish power that he had never encountered before.
--Harry Potter (Harry & Hermione encounter 'Bathilda'; DH ch. 17).

She hesitated, but recognized the dismissal. She picked up the book and then walked back past him into the tent, but as she did so, she brushed the top of his head lightly with her hand. He closed his eyes at her touch.
--Harry Potter (Harry & Hermione; DH ch. 18).

'Who wouldn't prefer him, what woman would take you, you are nothing, nothing, nothing to him,' crooned Riddle-Hermione, and she stretched like a snake and entwined herself around Riddle-Harry, wrapping him in a close embrace: Their lips met.
--Harry Potter (Voldemort's soul tortures Ron; DH ch. 19).

'[...] He knew what he was doing when he gave me the Deluminator, didn't he? He-- well,' Ron's ears turned bright red and he became engrossed in a tuft of grass at his feet, which he prodded with his toe, 'he must've known I'd run out on you.'
'No,' Harry corrected him. 'He must've known you'd always want to come back.'

--Harry Potter (DH ch. 20).

'You only agreed to try and get back in her good books.'
'All's fair in love and war,' said Ron brightly, 'and this is a bit of both. Cheer up, it's the Christmas holidays, Luna'll be home!'

--Harry Potter (Harry & Ron about Hermione's suggestion of visiting the Lovegoods; DH ch. 20).

'Listen, I've got a feeling you'd be able to tell who lived there if you looked through the Lovegoods' window, Let's try the next lot of hills.'
[...]
'Aha!' shouted Ron, as the wind whipped their hair and clothes. Ron was pointing upward, toward the top of the hill on which they had appeared, where a most strange-looking house rose vertically against the sky, a great black cylinder with a ghostly moon hanging behind it in the afternoon sky. 'That's got to be Luna's house, who else would live in a place like that? It looks like a giant rook!'
'It's nothing like a bird,' said Hermione, frowning at the tower.
'I was talking about a chess rook,' said Ron. 'A castle to you.'
Ron's legs were the longest and he reached the top of the hill first. When Harry and Hermione caught up with him, panting and clutching stitches in their sides, they found him grinning broadly.
'It's theirs,' said Ron.

--Harry Potter (DH ch. 20).

Cowardly old wart. Luna's got ten times his guts.
--Harry Potter (Ron about Xenophilius Lovegood; DH ch. 20).

'Death's got an Invisibility Cloak?' Harry interrupted again.
'So he can sneak up on people,' said Ron. 'Sometimes he gets bored of running at them, flapping his arms and shrieking... sorry, Hermione.'

--Harry Potter (DH ch. 21).

'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; Hermione said 'the Cloak,' Ron said, 'the wand,' and Harry said, 'the stone.'
They looked at each other, half surprised, half amused.

--Harry Potter (The trio discuss the tale of the three brothers; DH ch. 21).

Hermione looked exasperated: The expression was so endearingly familiar that Harry and Ron grinned at each other.
--Harry Potter (DH ch. 21).

Luna had decorated her bedroom ceiling with five beautifully painted faces: Harry, Ron, Hermione, Ginny, and Neville.
[...]
What appeared to be golden chains wove around the pictures, linking them together, but after examining them for a minute or so, Harry realized that the chains were actually one word, repeated a thousand times in golden ink:
friends... friends... friends...
--Harry Potter (DH ch. 21).

Harry could not help but notice that Ron seemed to be taking charge. Perhaps because he was determined to make up for having walked out on them, perhaps because Harry's descent into listlessness galvanized his dormant leadership qualities, Ron was the one now encouraging and exhorting the other two into action.
--Harry Potter (DH ch. 22).

For instance, this new idea that you-know-who can kill with a single glance from his eyes. That's a basilisk, listeners. One simple test: Check whether the thing that's glaring at you has got legs. If it has, it's safe to look into its eyes.
--Harry Potter (Fred, aka Rapier, during Potterwatch; DH ch. 22).

She tasted disgusting, worse than Gurdyroots! Okay, Ron, come here so I can do you...
--Harry Potter (More suggestive than it really is; DH ch. 26).

'There,' said Hermione, 'how does he look, Harry?'
[...]
'Well, he's not my type, but he'll do,' said Harry.

--Harry Potter (Hermione & Harry about Ron's glamour charm; DH ch. 26).

How could Lord Voldemort not have known, if he, himself, most important and precious, had been attacked, mutilated?
--Harry Potter (Voldie loves himself a bit too much; DH ch. 27).

'The silver doe!' he said excitedly. 'Was that you too?'
[...]
'Brains like that, you could be a Death Eater, son. Haven't I just proved my Patronus is a goat?'
'Oh,' said Ron. 'Yeah... well, I'm hungry!'

--Harry Potter (Ronnie needs his energy to dazzle us with his brilliance; DH ch. 28).

'[...] I went through and met Aberforth. He's been providing us with food, because for some reason, that's the one thing the room doesn't really do.'
'Yeah, well, food's one of the five exceptions to Gamp's law of Elemental Transfiguration,' said Ron to general astonishment.

--Harry Potter (Ron's a hidden genius; DH ch. 29).

Cho had got to her feet, but Ginny said rather fiercely, 'No, Luna will take Harry, won't you, Luna?'
--Harry Potter (Ginny's jealous of Cho; DH ch. 29).

'Why would Harry Potter try to get inside Ravenclaw Tower? Potter belongs in my House!'
Beneath the disbelief and anger, Harry heard a little strain of pride in her voice, and affection for Minerva McGonagall gushed up inside him.

--Harry Potter (Harry luvvs his Head of House; DH ch. 30).

'Potter!' whispered Professor McGonagall, clutching her heart. 'Potter-- you're here! What--? How--?' She struggled to pull herself together. 'Potter, that was foolish!'
'He spat at you,' said Harry.

--Harry Potter (Gryffindors defend each other; DH ch. 30).

Before Harry or Luna could act, Professor McGonagall rose to her feet, pointed her wand at the groggy Death Eater, and said 'Imperio.'
--Harry Potter (DH ch. 30).

'Our headmaster is taking a short break,' said Professor McGonagall, pointing at the Snape-shaped hole in the window.
--Harry Potter (Talk about a cartoon moment; DH ch. 30).

[...] His thoughts buzzed as frantically and fruitlessly as wasps trapped beneath a glass. Without Ron and Hermione to help him he could not seem to marshal his ideas.
--Harry Potter (DH ch. 31).

The two stone gargoyles that usually guarded the entrance to the staffroom had been smashed apart by a jinx that had sailed through another broken window. Their remains stirred feebly on the floor, and as Harry leapt over one of their disembodied heads, it moaned faintly, 'Oh, don't mind me... I'll just lie here and crumble...'
--Harry Potter (DH ch. 31).

'But how did you get in there?' he asked, staring from the fangs to Ron. 'You need to speak Parseltongue!'
'He did!' whispered Hermione. 'Show him, Ron!'
Ron made a horrible strangled hissing noise.
'It's what you did to open the locket,' he told Harry, apologetically. 'I had to have a few goes to get it right, but,' he shrugged modestly, 'we got there in the end.'
'He was
amazing!' said Hermione. 'Amazing!'
--Harry Potter (Ronald is amazing!; DH ch. 31).

'Hang on a moment!' said Ron sharply. 'We've forgotten someone!'
'Who?' said Hermione.
'The house-elves, they'll all be down in the kitchen, won't they?'
'You mean we ought to get them fighting?' asked Harry.
'No,' said Ron seriously, '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.
'Is this the moment?' Harry asked weakly, and 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!'

--Harry Potter (Dh ch. 31).

Grawp came lurching around the corner of the castle; only now did Harry realize that Grawp was, indeed, an undersized giant.
--Harry Potter (DH ch. 32).

'RUN!' Harry roared; the night was full of hideous yells and blows as the giants wrestled, and he seized Hermione's hand and tore down the steps into the grounds, Ron bringing up the rear.
--Harry Potter (DH ch. 32).

'That's right, Harry... come on, think of something happy...'
'Something happy?' he said, his voice cracked.
'We're all still here,' she whispered, 'we're still fighting. Come on, now...'

--Harry Potter (Luna helps Harry focus; DH ch. 32).

'I can-- see the place-- if we just had-- Crookshanks again--'
'Crookshanks?' wheezed Hermione, bent double, clutching her chest.
'Are you a wizard, or what?'
--Harry Potter (Going into the Whomping Willow; DH ch. 32).

Voldemort wanted him to do this, wanted him to come... Was he leading Ron and Hermione into a trap?
[...]
'Harry, we're coming, just get in there!' said Ron, pushing him forward.

--Harry Potter (DH ch. 32).

I am afraid I counted on Miss Granger to slow you up, Harry. I was afraid that your hot head might dominate your good heart.
--Harry Potter (Dumbledore to Harry; DH ch. 35).

'You show spirit and bravery, and you come of noble stock. You will make a very valuable Death Eater. We need your kind, Neville Longbottom.'
'I'll join you when hell frezes over,' said Neville. 'Dumbledore's Army!' he shouted, and there was an answering cheer from the crowd, whom Voldemort's Silencing Charms seemed unable to hold.

--Harry Potter (Neville is the champion of the good guys; DH ch. 36).

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.
--Harry Potter (The Trio after the final battle is over; DH ch. 36).

Everywhere he looked he saw families reunited, and finally, he saw the two whose company he craved most.
--Harry Potter (Ron and Hermione are Harry's family; DH ch. 36).

'So that's little Scorpius,' said Ron under his breath. 'Make sure you beat him in every test, Rosie. Thank God you inherited your mother's brains.'
--Harry Potter (Ron's one request from his daughter; DH epilogue).

Don't get too friendly with him, though, Rosie. Granddad Weasley would never forgive you if you married a pureblood.
--Harry Potter (Ron's advice for his daughter; DH epilogue).

'Why are they all staring?' demanded Albus as he and Rose craned around to look at the other students.
'Don't let it worry you,' said Ron. 'It's me. I'm extremely famous.'

--Harry Potter (Ron's got it all under control; DH epilogue).
