Exceptional character moments:

  • Draco Malfoy, gloating that his father "got rid of Dumbledore" - with no idea that he himself will one day be unable to bring himself to "get rid of" Dumbledore.

  • Draco Malfoy, sucking up to Snape.

  • Seamus, pretending to throw up after listening to Malfoy fawning on Snape.

  • Ron, prepared to kill Draco with his bare hands after Draco says what a pity it was that Hermione wasn't the first victim to be killed.

  • Ernie, who has the grace and the guts to publicly apologize to Harry for suspecting him.

Memorable lines:

  • Ron gave a loud snort. Evidently, hatching Aragog out in a cupboard wasn't his idea of being innocent.
