Favorite quotes by Fred and/or George from OotP (pt 1 of 2; 4/05/09-4/19/09)
Please choose your top 2 favorite quotes from Fred/George.


PLEASE NOTE: Due to the vast abundance of material these quotes are from OotP, chapters 1-12 ONLY, and there will be another poll with MORE F/G quotes from the last half of OotP at a later date.

1) 'Testers?'
'Us,' said Fred. 'We take it in turns. George did the Fainting Fancies – we both tried the Nosebleed Nougat –'
'Mum thought we'd been duelling,' said George. (OP6)

2) 'I love hearing Mum shouting at someone else,' said Fred, with a satisfied smile on his face… (OP6)

3) 'Prefect?' he [Fred] said, staring incredulously at the letter. 'Prefect?' … 'No way,' said George in a hushed voice.
'There's been a mistake,' said Fred…
'Yeah,' said Fred slowly. 'Yeah, you've [Harry} caused too much trouble, mate. Well, at least one of you's got their priorities right.' He strode over to Harry and clapped him on the back while giving Ron a scathing look.
'I don't believe it! I don't believe it! Oh, Ron, how wonderful! A prefect! That's everyone in the family!'
'What are Fred and I, next-door neighbours?' said George indignantly…
'We're going to have to watch our step, George,' said Fred, pretending to tremble, these two on our case…'
'Yeah, it looks like our law-breaking days are finally over,' said George, shaking his head. (OP9)

4) GALLONS OF GALLEONS! Pocket money failing to keep pace with your outgoings?
Like to earn a little extra gold?
Contact Fred and George Weasley Gryffindor common room,
For simple, part-time, virtually painless jobs.
(We regret that all work is undertaken at applicant's own risk.)(OP12)

5) 'Half our year had minor breakdowns coming up to OWLs,' said George happily. 'Tears and tantrums… Patricia Stimpson kept coming over faint…'
'Kenneth Towler came out in boils, d' you remember?' said Fred reminiscently.
'That's 'cause you put Bulbadox powder in his pyjamas,' said George.
'Oh, yeah,' said Fred, grinning. 'I'd forgotten… hard to keep track sometimes, isn't it?' (OP12)

While cruising the archives of the Votes thread I came across a poll that had been closed but not tallied. Kip gave me permission to tally it up, so....check out the "Rank the Seven Books" thread to see the results.

As for this poll....my votes go to #3 (the prefect conversation) and #5 (it's hard to keep track...).

Steve, if it is indeed from OotP, I'll just add it to the next poll, "Fav Quotes of F/G from the Last Half of the OotP" (or something like that)

It's always hard to choose when it comes to Gred & Forge ... For my money, "What are Fred and I, next-door neighbours?" said George indignantly… is still the funniest ever. Number 5 says a lot about the twins, I think. So ... 3 & 5, I guess. (I like the one where they apparate into the bedroom and say they recognized Harry's "dulcet tones," uttered shortly after he'd gone CAPS LOCK on Ron and Hermione.)

"Plenty of courage, I see. Not a bad mind either. There's talent - and a nice thirst to prove yourself ..." (PS/SS)
3) and 5) for me, too. It's not just the lines of dialogue that are memorable, but the way Jo decribes the way they're delivered.

Dear freshwater,

I hope you don't mind, but I thought I'd tally up the results of this poll. I'm just going to post the bare facts, no summary.

Number of votes cast: 12
Voters: me and my shadow 813, azi, freshwater, Ludicrous Patents Office, mona amon, Elanor, Mrs Brisbee, Solitaire, Dryleaves, Potteraholic, Tazzygirl, and TwinklingBlueEyes.

The choice that received the most votes is written in blue.

Poll results:

1 – 0/24 = 0%

2 – 4/24 = 16.67%

3 – 12/24 = 50%

4 – 1/24 = 4.17%

5 = 7/24 = 29.17%
