    Hehe, I love the quotes with Ron being jealus I always laugh:

    'How's it going?' Harry asked Ron, sitting down and opening a bottle of Butterbeer.
    Ron didn't answer. He was glaring at Hermione and Krum, who were dancing nearby. Padma was sitting with her arms and legs crossed, one foot jiggling in time to the music. Every now and then she threw a disgruntled look at Ron, who was completely ignoring her. Parvati sat down on Harry's other side, crossed her arms and legs too, and within minutes, was asked to dance by a boy from Beauxbatons.
    'You don't mind, do you, Harry?' Parvati said.
    'What?' said Harry, who was now watching Cho and Cedric.
    'Oh, never mind,' snapped Parvati, and she went off with the boy from Beauxbatons. When the song ended, she did not return.
    Hermione came over and sat down in Parvati's empty chair. She was a bit pink in the face from dancing.
    'Hi,' said Harry. Ron didn't say anything.
    'It's hot, isn't it?' said Hermione, fanning herself with her hand. 'Viktor's just gone to get some drinks.'
    Ron gave her a withering look.
    'Viktor?' he said. 'Hasn't he asked you to call him Vicky yet?'
    Hermione looked at him in surprise.
    'What's up with you?' she said.
    'If you don't know,' said Ron scathingly, 'I'm not going to tell you.'
    Hermione stared at him, then at Harry, who shrugged. 'Ron, what -?'
    'He's from Durmstrang!' spat Ron. 'He's competing against Harry! Against Hogwarts! You - you're -' Ron was obviously casting around for words strong enough to describe Hermione's crime, 'fraternising with the enemy, that's what you're doing!'
    Hermione's mouth fell open.
    'Don't be so stupid!' she said after a moment. 'The enemy! Honestly - who was the one who was all excited when they saw him arrive? Who was the one who wanted his autograph? Who's got a model of him up in their dormitory?'
    Ron chose to ignore this. 'I s'pose he asked you to come with him while you were both in the library?'
    'Yes, he did,' said Hermione, the pink patches on her cheeks glowing more brightly. 'So what?'
    'What happened - trying to get him to join spew, were you?'
    'No, I wasn't! If you really want to know, he - he said he'd been coming up to the library every day to try and talk to me, but he hadn't been able to pluck up the courage!'
    Hermione said this very quickly, and blushed so deeply that she was the same colour as Parvati's robes.
    'Yeah, well - that's his story,' said Ron nastily.
    'And what's that supposed to mean?'
    'Obvious, isn't it? He's Karkaroff's student, isn't he? He knows who you hang around with...he's just trying to get closer to Harry - get inside information on him - or get near enough to jinx him -'
    Hermione looked as though Ron had slapped her. When she spoke, her voice quivered. 'For your information, he hasn't asked me one single thing about Harry, not one -'
    Ron changed tack at the speed of light. 'Then he's hoping you'll help him find out what his egg means! I suppose you've been putting your heads together during those cosy little library sessions -'
    'I'd never help him work out that egg!' said Hermione, looking outraged. 'Never. How could you say something like that - I want Harry to win the Tournament. Harry knows that, don't you, Harry?'
    'You've got a funny way of showing it,' sneered Ron.
    'This whole Tournament's supposed to be about getting to know foreign wizards and making friends with them!' said Hermione shrilly.
    'No, it isn't!' shouted Ron. 'It's about winning!'
    People were starting to stare at them.
    'Ron,' said Harry quietly, 'I haven't got a problem with Hermione coming with Krum -'
    But Ron ignored Harry too.
    'Why don't you go and find Vicky, he'll be wondering where you are,' said Ron.
    'Don't call him Vicky!' Hermione jumped to her feet, and stormed off across the dance floor, disappearing into the crowd.
    Ron watched her go with a mixture of anger and satisfaction on his face.
    'Are you going to ask me to dance at all?' Padma asked him.
    'No,' said Ron, still glaring after Hermione

    sorry that was so long....


    Heres some more:

    'We will see each uzzer again, I 'ope,' said Fleur, as she reached him, holding out her hand. 'I am 'oping to get a job 'ere, to improve my Eenglish.'
    'It's very good already,' said Ron, in a strangled sort of voice. Fleur smiled at him; Hermione scowled

    'But this is much more important than homework!' said Hermione.
    Harry and Ron goggled at her.
    'I didn't think there was anything in the universe more important than homework!' said Ron.
    - Chapter 15, Page 291 (British), Page 325 (American)

    'Oh,' said Ron, his smile fading slightly. 'Are you that bad at kissing?'
    'Dunno,' said Harry, who hadn't considered this, and immediately felt rather worried. 'Maybe I am.'
    'Of course you're not,' said Hermione absently, still scribbling away at her letter. 'How do you know?' said Ron very sharply.
    - Chapter 21, Page 405 (British), Page 458 (American

    'You'd think a bit of kissing would cheer her up,' said Ron, grinning.
    'Ron,' said Hermione in a dignified voice, dipping the point of her quill into her inkpot, 'you are the most insensitive wart I have ever had the misfortune to meet.'
    - Chapter 21, Page 405 (British), Pages 458-459 (American)

    A slightly stunned silence greeted the end of this speech, then Ron said, 'One person can't feel all that at once, they'd explode.'
    'Just because you've got the emotional range of a teaspoon doesn't mean we all have,' said Hermione nastily, picking up her quill again.
    - Chapter 21, Page 406 (British), Page 459 (American)

    'Who cares?' said Ron irritably, while his teacup stood up drunkenly again, trembling violently at the knees. 'Montague shouldn't have tried to take all those points from Gryffindor, should he? If you want to worry about anyone, Hermione, worry about me!'
    'You?' she said, catching her teacup as it scampered happily away across the desk on four sturdy little willow-patterned legs, and replacing it in front of her. 'Why should I be worried about you?'

    and:

    "HARRY THIS IS NO TIME TO BE A GENTLEMAN! KNOCK HER OFF HER BROOM IF YOU HAVE TO!"-Wood

    "Mum! How really corking to see you-!" -Fred Weasley

    He therefore had to endure over an hour of Professor Trelawny, who spent half the lesson telling everyone that the position of Mars with relation to Saturn at that moment meant that people born in July were in great danger of sudden, violent deaths.


    "Well, that's good," said Harry loudly, his temper getting the better of him, "just as long as it's not drawn out. I don't want to suffer."

    "Well honestly... 'the fates have informed her'... who sets the exam? She does! What an amazing prediction!"-Hermione

    "I WARNED YOU! I WILL NOT TOLERATE MENTION OF YOUR ABNORMALITY UNDER THIS ROOF!" -Uncle Vernon


    "Oh, are you a prefect, Percy?" said one of the twins, with an air of great surprise. "You should have said something, we had no idea."
    "Hang on, I think I remember him saying something about it," said the other twin. "Once--"
    "Or twice--"
    "A minute--"
    "All summer--"
    "Oh, shut up," said Percy the Prefect.

    "Mad?" said Percy airily. He's a genius! Best wizard in the world! But he is a bit mad, yes. Potatoes, Harry?"

    "Don't worry, the Weasleys are more than a match for the Bludgers--I mean, they're like a pair of human Bludgers themselves." -Oliver Wood

    Which raises a good question: What is the point of a rubber duck?

    These are only some of my favourites!

    "I told you!" Ron hissed at Hermione as she stared down the article. "I told you not to annoy Rita Skeeter! She's made you out to be some sort of-scarlet woman!"
    Hermione stopped looking atonished and snorted with laughter. "Scarlet woman?" she repeated, shaking with surpressed giggles as she looked around at Ron.
    "It's what my mum calls them," Ron muttered, his ears going red.

    "We tried to shut him in a pyramid, but Mum spotted us." -George Weasley

    "Lockhart'll sign anything if it stands still long enough." -Ron

    One of them was a very old wizard who was wearing a long flowery nightgown. The other was clearly a Ministry wizard; he was holding out a pair of pinstriped trousers and almost crying with exasperation.
    "Just put them on, Archie, there's a good chap. You can't walk around like that, the Muggle at the gate's already getting suspicious--"
    "I bought this in a Muggle shop," said the old wizard stubbornly. "Muggles wear them."
    "Muggle women wear them, Archie, not the men, they wear these," said the Ministry wizard, and he brandished the pinstriped trousers.
    "I'm not putting them on," said old Archie in indignation. "I like a healthy breeze 'round my privates, thanks."

    Why," demanded Ron, seizing her schedule, "have you outlined all Lockhart's lessons in little hearts?"

    "A study of Hogwarts prefects and their later careers," Ron read aloud off the back cover. "That sounds fascinating."

    "Moony, Wormtail, Padfoot, and Prongs," sighed George, patting the heading of the map. "We owe them so much."
    "Noble men, working tirelessly to help a new generation of lawbreakers." said Fred solemnly..."

    My favorite quote so far is the one at the end of the fourth book. The one that Hagrid says to Harry about the undeniable fact that Voldemort has returned and that a war is coming. I don't remember it now but I'll look for it and post it later.

    Heromine: "Just because you've got the emotional range of a teaspoon doesn't mean we all have."

    Sirius: "If you want to know what a man's like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals."

    That line...it was previously said by someone else. That quote is a famous one, she just took and edited it slightly. But I suppose she meant for Sirius to just be quoting.

    "Mr. Mooney presents his compliments to Professor Snape, and begs him to keep
    his abnormally large nose out of other people's business."
    "Mr. Padfoot would like to register his astonishment that an idiot like
    that ever became a professor."

    those two are pure clasics in my book.

    Mr. Ollivander: Curious... very curious...

    Harry: Excuse me, sir, but what's curious?

    Mr. Ollivander: I remember every wand I've ever sold, Mr. Potter. It just so happens that the phoenix whose tailfeather resides in your wand gave another... just one other. It is curious that you should be destined for this wand... when its brother gave you that scar.

    Harry: [puts a hand to his forehead] And who owned that wand?

    Mr. Ollivander: We do not speak his name! The wand chooses the wizard, Mr. Potter. It's not always clear why. But I think it is clear that we can expect great things from you. After all, He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named did great things. Terrible! Yes. But great.
