Favorite quotes by Fred and/or George from GoF ONLY (7/27/08-8/10/08)

Edited by Kip Carter Aug 14, 2008 12:59 am

These quotes by Fred and/or George are from HP and the Goblet of Fire ONLY! Quote from books 5-7 will appear in future polls. Please choose one or two favorites from the choices below.

1)

(speaking of the Ton Tongue Toffe that was 'accidentally' dropped in the Dursley's living room)

“We didn’t give it to him because he’s a Muggle!” said Fred indignantly.

“No, we gave it to him because he’s a great, bullying, git,” said George. // Ch. 5

========================

2)

“Yeah, someone might slip dragon dung in it again, eh, Perce?” said Fred.

“That was a sample of fertilizer from Norway,” said Percy, going very red in the face. “It was nothing personal!”

“It was,” Fred whispered to Harry as they got up from the table. “We sent it.” //Ch. 5

===============

3)

“Oh, shut up, Weatherby,” said Fred. Ch. 8

======================================

4)

(about the egg) “Don’t be a prat, Neville, that’s illegal,” said George. “They wouldn’t use the Cruciatus Curse on the champions. I thought it sounded a bit like Percy singing….maybe you’ve got to attack him while he’s in the shower, Harry.” //Ch. 21

==============================

5)

“Who’re you going with, then?” asked Ron.

“Angelina,” said Fred promptly, without a trace of embarrassment.

“What?” said Ron, taken aback. “You’ve already asked her?”

“Good point,” said Fred. He turned his head and called across the common room. “Oi! Angelina!”…

“What?” she called back.

“Want to come to the ball with me?” Angelina gave Fred an appraising sort of look.

“All right, then,” she said….

“There you go,” said Fred to Harry and Ron, “piece of cake.” //Ch. 22

===================================

6)

(George speaking) “You’re starting to sound a bit like our dear older brother, you are, Ron. Carry on like this and you’ll be made a Prefect.” //Ch. 29

My favorite quote from GoF, hands down: 3) “Oh, shut up, Weatherby,” said Fred. (Ch. Cool

Next favorite, I guess: 4) (about the egg) “Don’t be a prat, Neville, that’s illegal,” said George. “They wouldn’t use the Cruciatus Curse on the champions. I thought it sounded a bit like Percy singing….maybe you’ve got to attack him while he’s in the shower, Harry.” (Ch. 21)

I have to say I also liked Fred's comment to Ron when they all got squished into the Dursleys' chimney (Ch. 4):
Ron asks, "What are we doing here? Has something gone wrong?"
Oh, no, Ron, came Fred's voice, very sarcastically. "No, this is exactly where we wanted to end up." (What can I say ... it's just so Fred!)

3)“Oh, shut up, Weatherby,” said Fred. Ch. 8 Classic Fred.

I agree with Soli about the chimney comment!

I love #1 (Ton Tongue Toffee) because it shows the twins attempting a bit of vigilante justice on Harry's behalf....and I like #2 (dragon dung) because it shows how clever and devious they are in tormenting Percy...and I like #5 because it shows Fred at his most confident....bit of a way of life for him, I'd say. But the rules --the ones I wrote(!)-- say one or two, so.....I'll settle on #5 (Fred inviting Angelina to the Yule Ball) and #1 for their pranking Dudley while supporting Harry.

The thing is, almost everything the twins say is memorable! They are not major characters, but when they are "on camera," every line is a gem!

3) “Oh, shut up, Weatherby.”

-AND-

5) “Want to come to the ball with me?”

Number five was brilliant the first time I read it, and then I thought it was just hysterical how it was portrayed in the movie.

I know that if I was Angelina I'd have said "Yes!" He's such a cutie.....and it was the wink at the end that just made the scene.

3) “Oh, shut up, Weatherby,” said Fred. Ch. 8 Slays me every time!

I agree about the scene where he asked Angelina to the ball, too -- in the movie it was soooo classic. What a cute wink!

I can't believe you left this one out (don't remember the exact quote): "What if the Hogwarts Express crashed tomorrow, and George and I died, and the last thing you ever said to us was an unfounded accusation?"

Of course, that takes on new meaning post-DH.

R.I.P. Fred

Hello Dryleaves! Been on holiday?

Hello to you, Orion! Yes I've been living in a cabin in the forest without access to the Internet for three weeks. It was much easier than I would have thought. But I have lots to catch up with now, when back. My husband is not that happy about me sitting constantly by the computer...

4) Percy in the shower (George): This remark is not only funny but it also solves a somewhat tense situation (with the terrible scream and with Neville mentioning the Cruciatus Curse).

5) Angelina (Fred): Well, yes, experienced older brother teaching beginner younger brother how to handle women - making sure younger brother loses the last of his self-confidence. Of course.
