Memorable lines:

  • "Oh, come on, Harry," said Hermione, suddenly impatient. "It's not Quidditch that's popular, it's you! You've never been more interesting, and frankly, you've never been more fanciable."

  • Hagrid looked stunned. "Since when have yeh called me 'sir'?"
    "Since when have you called me 'Potter'?"
