Most favorite and funniest little moments in the series

Obviously we've got some brilliant "big" moments in the series, Neville killing Nagini, Harry's walk in the forest, Dumbledore's "I am not worried Harry, I am with you" *tears up a little bit* but there are also some great moments that don't get as much attention. This thread is for you to share those.

A few of my own:

HBP: McGonagall telling Neville about his grandmother flunking her charms OWL and that she should be happy with the grandson she has.

GoF: Percy running into the Lake when Ron comes back from the bottom during the second task. This was my proof for years that Percy was going to come back to the right side.

PoA: Dennis Creevey falling into the lake and being saved by the Giant Squid.

Well you get the idea. Carry on.

Re: Favorite Little Moments in the Series

Ooh, cool new thread.

My favorite little scenes were mostly in the first few books, especially SS/PS. I loved that one when Dudley put his foot through the TV when the Great Humberto was canceled, and rode over Mrs. Figg on his bike. Later, I thought it was interesting that when Harry and Ron accidently tried to break through hte Forbidden Corridor's Door and Filch tried to punish them, Quirrell was the one who saved them. The book said he was passing, and now I know why! I thought that was cool.

Others: CoS, when Ron says he won't eat anything with Crabbe's toenails. Classic Ron.

DH, and that little line: "And Harry hated himself for wishing that what Hermione had said was true: that Dumbledore really cared." That line really spoke volumes to about how much Harry really cared for Dumbledore. Very touching.

BTW, didn't Dennis fall in the like during GoF, not PoA?

Re: Favorite Little Moments in the Series

I love all the little insights into wizarding life such as the adverts and salesmen at the quiditch world cup the Ron's letter to Harry in PoA when he tells him what the he got up to on holiday in Egypt.

Re: Favorite Little Moments in the Series

I've always liked McGonagall's small moments where she shows her "soft side".

"Have a biscuit potter"

"No, Luna can take Harry"

When Sirius sees Harry off at Platform 9 3/4

Yipes, I've got loads...

Re: Favorite Little Moments in the Series

I'd have to agree with chparadise that I love all of the little McGonagall moments when we get to see her other side. Some favorites include: when she says she would join the students chasing Umbridge out of Hogwarts if Peeves hadn't taken her cane, saying the chandelier unscrews the other way, the way she totally owns Umbridge during the review.

I like Flitwick's little moments when he gets knocked over because he's so little.

Also, Dumbledore is one of my favorite characters, and I like all of his little moments, especially his encounter with the Dursleys in the opening of HBP.

HBP: "Excuse me, are you the imprint of a departed soul?"

And one of my favorite exchanges is from PoA:

"Harry!" said Fred, elbowing Percy out of the way and bowing deeply. "Simply splendid to see you, old boy-"
"Marvelous," said George, pushing Fred aside and seizing Harry's hand in turn. "Absolutely spiffing." Percy scowled.
"That's enough, now," said Mrs. Weasley.
"Mum!" said Fred as though he'd only just spotted her and seized her hand too. "How really corking to see you-"

Re: Favorite Little Moments in the Series

I think it's GoF when Charlie & Bill were flying the tables at each other at the Burrow & Percy gives out to them because he's doing the report on the cauldrons! - I loved that! there's so many - now I have to go think of more!

Re: Favorite Little Moments in the Series

I have a lot of little moments. Like when McGonagol tells Peeves "it unscrews the other way" and when she tells Neville "And I'll drop a hint to Augosta that just because she failed her Charms OWL, the subject is not entirely useless" or something like that, when Snape says something about how 6 years of magical education have not been wasted on Harry, and then Ron says "Are you the imprint of a departed soul?" And when i just started, i didn't feel too bad for Draco, so i still liked it when Voldemort asked Draco "Will you babysit the cubs?" A lot of stuff....

Gah! I love these two moments. McGonagall shined in OoTP, I love how she tells Harry that she will do everything in her power to make sure he becomes an Auror. The contrast between her and Umbridge was great. The chandelier part was hilarious .

I liked how Hagrid got all dolled up for Madame Maxime I thought it was so adorable.

I love when Harry gets his first Weasley sweater. Such a small gift but it showed that he had family now.

The little subtle moments between Harry and Ginny in OoTP.

In Cos, when Ginny overturns a soup bowl or puts her elbow in the butter (I can't remember which one), but Harry acts as if he didn't notice. (what a little sweetheart).

Arther asking Molly what he calls her "Mollywobbles".

I have SO many more, but this is a fun little thread to reminisce. I am rereading the series now so I am sure I will come up with a few hundred more .

Re: Favorite Little Moments in the Series

Hermione says "They were treating her like she wasnt even human!"
Ron says "Well, she isnt"

That is by far my favorite little moment in the series.

Re: Favorite Little Moments in the Series

Little moments I loved:

-Ron and Hermione falling asleep holding hands.

-James chasing baby Harry on his 'lil broomstick while Lily laughed. They were such loving parents.

-Luna recognizing Harry under his disguise just because of his expression.

-Harry watching Ginny's dot on the map.

-Lucius releasing his wand at Cissy's touch. *Awww*

-Snape getting so angry when Dumbledore got hurt- it was through his anger that I could see how much he really cared for Dumbledore and the kind of pain he was in when Dumbledore was injured beyond repair, and that touched me immensely.

-All the Aunt Muriel moments- she was so funny!

-Harry telling Rufus that it was time he "earned [respect]"

-Vernon accusing Harry of trying to "get the house"

-Luna's friends portrait in her room.

And that was just in DH!

Re: Favorite Little Moments in the Series

For one of my favorite pieces of dialogue, you can see my signature. (Harry speaks, then Ron, for those who forgot).
And I also liked (though this is only partially a specific moment) in GoF when Ron, who is scared to death of anybody even saying the name "Voldemort," starts asking why seeing the Dark Mark is such a big deal.

Re: Favorite Little Moments in the Series

The one where Mgonagall asks the carrows why Harry would want to get into Ravenclaws common room when he belongs to Gryffindor,with pride in her statement.


Where Ginny tells Harry she told romilda Rons got a tatoo of a pigmypuff.

Dumbledore ´s man through and through

"you know your mother Malfoy,the look she has,like shes got dung under her nose,or was that because she was with you"


Pity his mother likes him,it would be so easily to throw himof a cliff."Ron Weasley.goblet of fire

and of course "Im not scared Harry,Im with you."

just to name a few

- Everybody singing the school song to their own tune in PS.

- Luna's Quidditch commentary.

- Mr Weasley's dearest ambition being finding out how airplanes stay up.

Re: Favorite Little Moments in the Series

Snape in HBP when he mocks Harry for saying ghosts are invisible. I don't have the exact quote.
Harry in HBP "you don't have to call me Sir, Professor".
James chasing baby Harry on his 'lil broomstick while Lily laughed. They were such loving parents. you can hear Harry giggling in that "from the tip of their toes" laugh.
Lily telling Sirius Harry "nearly killed the cat" in that letter. You could just picture it and see her sense of humour.
Snape's anger toward Dumbledore for letting his curiosity get in the way of his better judgement. Yet at the same time, he tends to Dumbledore like a Doctor. Great moment.
