Re: Funniest lines in the films

This is the one that immediately pops into my mind. It's in the very last movie when the Gringotts dragon toasts the goblin bank manager.

Ron looks on and remarks:

"That's unfortunate."

Re: Funniest lines in the films

I like when Harry is talking about the spiders pincers in HBP lol .... and when dawn french played the fat lady she was funny.... and Snape was funny the whole series....... when he pulls up his sleeves and forces harry and ron's heads into their books in the great hall ... and slaps Ron over the head with a book haha and OOTP during Umbridge inspection... "you applied first for the defense agains the dark arts job?" "yes" "but you were.. unsuccessful?" "OBviously." hahahahaha

Ron actually says, "So...did you and Ginny do it?" in case anyone's wondering why Harry suddenly looks suspiciously guilty. But Ron doesn't catch on.

Actually, one of my favorite funny lines is one of the last (I probably don't have the wording quite right).

Harry: ...until a couple of weeks ago, when I overpowered Draco, at Malfoy Manor.

Ron: But that means the Elder Wand...

Harry: [shrugging] Yeah...it's mine.

On paper, not so funny, but Radcliffe's delivery of "It's mine" is pitch perfect--casual, as if he wasn't the master of the most powerful wand in the world (as Ron puts it a moment later), but acknowledging the truth.

Re: Funniest lines in the films

When Harry drinks the Felix Felicis Radcliffe gives one of the gretest performances in the saga for me, it makes me laugh everytime I see it.

The tip-tap dance gets me all the time! ahah!

Ron: "Don't tell hermione I said this" (DH1) ahahahahha!

Harry: "But I am the chosen one" (HBP) Great delivery!

Re: Funniest lines in the films

In CoS when Polyjuice-Harry explains that he has glasses on for reading, Draco replies: " Didn't know you could read" and just continues walking . Tom Feltons facial expression and delivery are just pure gold in this one!

Oh yes I had forgotten about that! I agree! The delivery of it and the the way Tom Felton says it is just amazing! I can't stop laughing.

Love this scene!

But the book has a trememdous spot too--where Slughorn puts his arm out and "scoops Snape out of thin air" horrifying Harry. That would have been nice to see on the screen too.

Re: Funniest lines in the films

Neville - after the bridge scene - 'That went well!'

and the Ron comment in Gringotts after the manager is crisped by the dragon - 'that's unfortunate.'

Re: Funniest lines in the films

The funniest line in all the movies, which never fails to make me laugh, is Snape's dressing down of Hermione for speaking out of turn the second time...the infamous, "Are you incapable of restraining yourself, or do you take pride in being an insufferable know-it-all?"

It probably has something to do with the accent and the rather pompous delivery too, but it always cracks me up.

Re: Funniest lines in the films

Harry's "pincers" with the action and clicking he did when referring to Aragog cracked me up. Also, I really love hearing Umbridge talk. I think she nails the role perfectly with her throat clearing and overly sweet voice. My sister and I refer to her not by her name, but by doing the "hem hem" she did in the book and so well in the movie.

Umbridge is scarier than Voldemort, isn't she? I'd hate to be in her class. But she is also funny, if you're not in her line of fire. I call her Miss Pepto Bismol because of all the pink. I like pink in moderation, but not quite so explosively. The actress who played her in the movies deserves major props.

Re: Funniest lines in the films

Speaking of Umbridge, one of my favorite lines is where Harry says, as Dolores is being swept away by the Centaurs: "I must not tell lies, Professor."

Re: Funniest lines in the films

I love so many of the lines and i crack up alot during Harry Potter, but I have to say that my "funny line of the moment" is in GoF when Karkaroff greets Dumbledore and pronounces his name "Alboose" just the thought of it gets me loling

EDIT: I also love Hermione's "next to last, Fleur never got past ze grindilovz"and David Tennant's "get your filthy hands off me, you pathetic little men"

Re: Funniest lines in the films

Yes, Welkin, Yes! "I call her Miss Pepto Bismol because of all the pink. I like pink in moderation, but not quite so explosively." Sorry, I can't seem to get the hang of putting others' quotes in the nice blue quote boxes.

And Mirror, yes, the "I must not tell lies" was great and was not in the book.

In CoS, I really liked the look on Hedwig's face right the before the Hogwart's Express almost hit them in the car. Her pupils dialated right before Ron managed to swoop the car up and out of the way. It wasn't a line, but it may as well have been.

And in HBP, when Hermione and Harry are at Slughorn's party and Hermione says, "I've just escaped," or something to that effect, and she meant from her date! And then Ron saying later after being "saved" from the love potion, "these girls are going to kill me."

McGonnagall in DH2: "I always wanted to use that spell."

What makes it so brilliant is that the weight of the Wizarding World is on her shoulders, yet she has that wonderfully human and humorous moment. It wouldn't be so funny if the scenario were not so fraught with danger and tension.

All of the lines on this thread are hilarious.
Most of them not even because they were written that way, but because of the amazing delivery of them from the actors

I really love that moment - when the statues come down from the walls I start crying! But what I also love is the look on Molly Weasley's face when she says that line - it's just a sideways glance but it is BRILLIANT!

Re: Funniest lines in the films

I love McGonagall's line. But, the look Molly Weasly gives her is like, "Have you lost your mind?"

One of the funniest lines to me in OotP, when they're seeing the kids back off after Christmas vacation. Moody is stumping along and Sirius runs by (as Padfoot), and Moody says, "Sirius! Are you barking (mad)?" It just struck me as funny.

And I know these two aren't even really funny, bu I love in PS when Hgrid tells Harry he's a wizard. He's like, "I can't be a wizard! I'm Harry! Just Harry!" It cracks me up.

Also in COS when they're leaving the chamber with Fawkes and Lockhart says "It's just like magic!"
