Favorite Quotes From Hermione Granger, Books 1-5

Please select 2 or 3 of your favorite quotes by Hermione Granger.

A) “I hope you’re pleased with yourselves. We could all have been killed –or worse, expelled!” PS/SS 9

B) “Neville, I’m really, really sorry about this.” She raised her wand, “Petrificus Totalus!” PS/SS 16

C) “At least no one on the Gryffindor team had to buy their way in. They got in on pure talent.” CoS 7

D) “Twitchy little ferret, aren’t you, Malfoy?” GoF 22

E) “Been having a nice little chat with her about whether or not I’m a lying, attention-seeking brat, have you?” Harry said loudly. “No,” said Hermione calmly, “I told her to keep her big, fat mouth shut about you, actually. And it would be quite nice if you would stop jumping down Ron’s and my throats, Harry, because if you haven’t noticed, we’re on your side.”

F) “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.” OotP 21

G) "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.

H) “That’s the trouble with Quidditch,” said Hermione absentmindedly, once again bent over her Rune translation, “it creates all this bad feeling and tension between the Houses.” She looked up to find her copy of Spellman’s Syllabary and caught Fred, George and Harry looking at her with mingled expressions of disgust and incredulity on their faces. “Well, it does!” she said impatiently. “It’s only a game, isn’t it?” OotP 26

I) “This isn’t a criticism, Harry! But you do….sort of… I mean—don’t you think you’ve got a bit of a-- a-- saving people thing?” she said. OotP 32

J) "Oh, Harry, you're as bad as Ron...well, no, you're not." OotP, I think... (from memory, may not be an exact quote)

A, D, and H Although G is another one of my favorites!

Verity Weasley - May 19, 2008 9:35 pm (#5 of 28)

A) “I hope you’re pleased with yourselves. We could all have been killed –or worse, expelled!” PS/SS 9 This told us so much about Hermione's personality when we were just getting to know her.

G) "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. One of the best putdowns of the whole series.

I) “This isn’t a criticism, Harry! But you do….sort of… I mean—don’t you think you’ve got a bit of a-- a-- saving people thing?” she said. OotP 32 Hermione displaying that Gryffindor bravery and saying what's on her mind despite the potential consequences.

Elanor - May 19, 2008 10:13 pm (#6 of 28)

A) “I hope you’re pleased with yourselves. We could all have been killed –or worse, expelled!” PS/SS 9

D) “Twitchy little ferret, aren’t you, Malfoy?” GoF 22

G) "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.

(If body language would count, I'd add when she slapped Malfoy, it was just too good a scene! )

A and I

Dryleaves - May 20, 2008 12:55 am (#10 of 28)

A) “I hope you’re pleased with yourselves. We could all have been killed –or worse, expelled!”

G) "Just because you've got the emotional range of a teaspoon doesn't mean we all have,"

I also like "I've never really liked horses" from OotP, when Parvati, who thinks Firenze is gorgeous, asks her if she isn't sorry she isn't taking divination classes anymore.

F, the insensitive wart, and G, the emotional range of a teaspoon.

Mrs Brisbee - May 20, 2008 10:23 am (#12 of 28)

A) “I hope you’re pleased with yourselves. We could all have been killed –or worse, expelled!” PS/SS 9 Just so Hermione.

I) “This isn’t a criticism, Harry! But you do….sort of… I mean—don’t you think you’ve got a bit of a-- a-- saving people thing?” she said. OotP 32 Love this line.

(If body language would count, I'd add when she slapped Malfoy, it was just too good a scene! )—Elanor

I agree, Elanor! It's a very satisfying scene! I think I almost added it...but may include in the poll about brave actions/events in the future.

G) "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.

Solitaire - May 20, 2008 9:30 pm (#16 of 28)

A ... It's classic Hermione!
H ... I'm afraid I am rather like Hermione in this area. It reminded me of the day my class asked me who I wanted to win the Super Bowl, and I responded, "I don't know ... who's playing?" You could have heard a pin drop, they were so shocked. Truthfully, I could not have cared less!
Write-in vote: I'm sorry. I am afraid I must do it again. I like this one: "Just because it's taken you three years to notice, Ron, doesn't mean no one else has spotted I'm a girl!"

Sorry!

G has been and will always be my favorite.

Solitaire, DON'T apologize for a write-in vote!!! They are often some of the best and also are often one of the favorites. I thought about including that one...but I had to draw the line somewhere....

_____________________________________

Chemyst - May 21, 2008 7:56 pm (#20 of 28)

G – teaspoon
A – worse/expelled
D – twitchy ferret

E, G, I

Finn BV - May 24, 2008 3:15 pm (#22 of 28)

A, F and G for me… they are all so classic -- they stood out in my mind when I read the question, before looking at the choices. A especially for me is just too good.

PeskyPixie - May 24, 2008 8:28 pm (#23 of 28)

1. A) “I hope you’re pleased with yourselves. We could all have been killed –or worse, expelled!” PS/SS 9

2. D) “Twitchy little ferret, aren’t you, Malfoy?” GoF 22

3. F) “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.” OotP 21

HungarianHorntail11 - May 28, 2008 4:04 pm (#24 of 28)

I loved A but for my favorite, I'll have to go with:
G) "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.

Madam Pince - Jun 1, 2008 2:54 pm (#25 of 28)

G - teaspoon. Classic.

Mrs. Sirius - Jun 1, 2008 10:56 pm (#26 of 28)

A is good, unfortunately, because of the movie it's over used for me.

killed –or worse, expelled!” PS/SS 9

G- I love this one

G) 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.

My favorite those is from PS/SS where she panics, "make a fire? but I haven't got wood." (To lazy and tired to go looking for the quote it's 2:00 am) Combined with Ron's response I just love it.

I was too late with this one - I would have voted G and D - but my favourite - "always the tone of surprise" wasn't there - has to be my favourite, as of course it is said back to her later!!!

sorry - I know polling has ended, but I am kicking myself that I missed this one.
