Memorable lines:

  • "T?" asked Hermione, looking appalled. "Even lower than a D? What on earth does that stand for?" "Troll," said George promptly. Harry laughed again, though he was not sure whether or not George was joking. He imagined trying to conceal from Hermione that he had received T's in all his O.W.L.s and immediately resolved to work harder from now on.

  • "Yeah, Quirrell was a great teacher," said Harry loudly, "there was just that minor drawback of him having Lord Voldemort sticking out of the back of his head."

Strictly British:

  • none

Timelines/Calendar:
