Post  Verity Weasley on Mon Jun 20, 2011 3:06 pm

Wow Julia, this is a mammoth quiz! Great choice of topic though.

OK, here goes:

Spoiler:
The Hogwarts Teachers Quiz

1. Put the following Headmasters/Headmistress into chronological order. 5p

Albus Dumbledore, Phineas Nigellus Black, Armando Dippet, Dilys Derwent, Severus Snape

1. Dilys Derwent
2. Phineas Nigellus Black
3. Armando Dippet
4. Albus Dumbledore
5. Severus Snape

Not sure about the first two, but I'm pretty confident about the rest!

2. Find the missing name. 3p

Horace Slughorn --- Severus Snape

Pomona Sprout --- Neville Longbottom

......................... --- Minerva McGonagall

Albus Dumbledore

3. Fill the gap with a name: 2p

"Sir, is it true that Professor .................................. is retiring?"

Merrythought

4. Find a teacher for each statement. 10p

a) This teacher has yellow, hawk-like eyes. Hmmm, no idea - Sinistra?
b) This teacher started to teach at Hogwarts in 1956. No idea about this one either - McGonagall?c) This teacher was a duelling champion. Flitwick
d) This teacher enjoys chamber music. Dumbledore
e) This teacher never sat his NEWT exams. Neville Longbottom?
f) This teacher had a famous ancestor. Professor Trelawney
g) This teacher likes crystallized pineapple very much. Slughorn
h) This teacher's favourite colour is lilac. Lockhart
i) This teacher invented several spells. Severus Snape
j) This teacher smokes a pipe. Professor Grubbly-Plank

5. The following quotes are from Hogwarts teachers. For each quote, give
a) the speaker
b) the book
c) either to whom the speaker is talking, or, if that is obvious from the quote, the general circumstances.

30p

1. "And yet -- is it good for him to be given so much special treatment? Personally, I try and treat him like any other student."

This sounds like Snape, talking to Dumbledore about Harry, but I'm not sure which book this is from. I'll make a guess - COS?

2. "You see, I do not generally permit people to talk when I am talking."

One of Minerva NcGonagall's wonderful putdowns, addressed to Umbridge as she attempted to observe one of Minnie's lessons in OOTP.

3. "But one does not parade the fact that one is All-Knowing."

Professor Trelawney, to the assembled throng, and in particular to McGonagall, at the Christmas dinner in POA.

4. "Not at all up to your usual standard, Hermione. Only one out of three, I'm afraid."

Professor Lupin to Hermione in the Shrieking Shack when the trio had cornered Sirius Black in POA.

5. "Longbottom, kindly do not reveal that you can't even perform a simple Switching Spell in front of anyone from Durmstrang!"

McGonagall to Neville as everyone waits for the visiting delegates from Beauxbatons and Durmstrang in GOF.

6. "It is one of the irritating things about old teachers, I am afraid, that they never quite forget their charges' youthful beginnings."

Dumbledore to Tom Riddle at the Ministry in OOTP.

7. "Ah, Sybill, we all think our subject's most important!"

OK, this is Dumbledore to Trelawney (obviously) but as for the circumstances and the book, I'm not sure. I'll guess OOTP.

8. "Ah, well, people can be stupid abou' their pets..."

Hagrid, talking to the trio, but again I'm not sure about the book. I'll guess HBP, just because we haven't had one from that yet.

9. "I deal with facts, not myths and legends."

Professor Binns, talking to Hermione and the rest of the class in COS after she asked him about the Chamber.

10. "You are fighting that which is unfixed, mutating, indestructible."

Professor Snape, in HBP, talking to the DADA class after he finally gets the job!

Phew! Thanks for that Julia, that was fun. There were some tough ones in there though.

Well, I'd better get busy coming up with something. I've been re-reading the series (again) prior to the DH2 movie so hopefully I can come up with something fresh and challenging.

The Harry Potter Non-Magical Person Quiz #130

Post  Betelgeuse Black on Sat Jul 09, 2011 7:45 pm

The Harry Potter Non-Magical Person Quiz
Below are 17 quotes. I’m asking who said it to whom (or the situation) in which of the books. Some people don’t have proper names established so a description of the person is acceptable (for instance, the waitress in the coffee shop on Tottenham Court Road). In one case, 5 bonus points will be awarded for the proper name since it is so obscure, I’ll be astonished if anyone will remember it. ( I certainly didn’t!)
Scoring: Two points for each part of the answer. Who said it is 2 points. The situation when the statement was made is 2 points. The third part is the book it occurred in for 2 points. 17 questions x 3 parts x 2 points each is 102 total points. It's time for the Ravenclaws to shine! Let the guessing begin!

1. “Nice right hook, Big D”

2. “Where did the glass go?”

3. “…but the cat’s among the pixies now…”

4. “Only I got about an ‘undred of these at the front desk”

5. “Are you threatening me, sir?”

6. “It’s never open, that place…”

7. “…I can do it at last…They’ve had it coming to them for years…”

8. “If there’s something rotten on the inside, there’s nothing anyone can do about it.”

9. “Will you get these ruddy things off us?”

10. “He scares the other children”

11. “Ditch ginger and come and have a pint!”

12. “Oh well, that’s better than a whack on the nose with a rusty poker.”

13. “Why isn’t he coming with us?”

14. “Why’re you staring at the hedge?”

15. “Perhaps people have been celebrating Bonfire Night early --…” 5 Bonus points here for the proper name of the speaker.

16. “You can do magic! Surely you can sort out—well – anything!”

17. “What the hell is that?”

Good luck to all of you non-magical people out there! Don't worry if you don't know many answers since the quotes are generally short and somewhat obscure.

I wasn't sure what to make the post title so some assistance here is requested.

BB

Spoiler:

2. “Where did the glass go?” Dudley's friend, in the reptile house, talking about the snake case, SS/PS

3. “…but the cat’s among the pixies now…” Mrs. Figg, following the dementor attack, OotP

4. “Only I got about an ‘undred of these at the front desk” Front desk clerk at the hotel, referring to letters from Hogwarts, to Vernon, SS/PS

5. “Are you threatening me, sir?” Vernon to Mad Eye, at the train station picking up Harry, end of OotP,

6. “It’s never open, that place…” Random Muggle, referring to the store that is a "front" for Saint Mungo's, OotP

7. “…I can do it at last…They’ve had it coming to them for years…” Filch, gets permission from Umbridge/Ministry to torture students, OotP

8. “If there’s something rotten on the inside, there’s nothing anyone can do about it.” Aunt Marge, talking about Harry, PoA

9. “Will you get these ruddy things off us?” Uncle Vernon to Dumbledore, referring to glasses of drink knocking their heads, HBP

10. “He scares the other children” Mrs. ? who runs the orphanage, telling Dumbledore about Tom Riddle, in a memory, HBP

11. “Ditch ginger and come and have a pint!” Random guy in Totten Court Road to Hermione, referring to Ron, DH

12. “Oh well, that’s better than a whack on the nose with a rusty poker.” Muggle at the camp site at the Quidditch World Cup, GoF

13. “Why isn’t he coming with us?” Dudley, talking about Harry, as family is going into hiding, start of DH

14. “Why’re you staring at the hedge?” Dudley to Harry, who thought he saw a pair of eyes, CoS

15. “Perhaps people have been celebrating Bonfire Night early --…” 5 Bonus points here for the proper name of the speaker. It's the person on the news, don't know the name, talking about the celebrations when LV is 1st thwarted by our young hero, PS/SS

16. “You can do magic! Surely you can sort out—well – anything!” Muggle Prime Minister to Fudge, who went to fill him in on the war, HBP

Re: HP Related Trivia (Vol. III)

Post  Solitaire on Sat Jul 09, 2011 10:18 pm

Well, here's my try! Some are favorites, so I remember them well. Alas, a few have confunded me!

Spoiler:
1. “Nice right hook, Big D” OP -- Harry to Dudley just before the Dementors attacked, mimicking something he overheard one of Dudley's friends say.

2. “Where did the glass go?” PS/SS -- I think this refers to the vanishing glass in the reptile exhibit. No idea who asked it.

3. “…but the cat’s among the pixies now…” OP -- It sounds like something Mrs. Figg would say.

4. “Only I got about an ‘undred of these at the front desk” PS/SS -- Motel clerk to the Dursleys about Harry's letters from Hogwarts.

5. “Are you threatening me, sir?” This sounds like Uncle Vernon to a Wizard ... not sure which one or what book.

6. “It’s never open, that place…” OP -- Muggle shoppers talking about St. Mungo's, which looked like an old department store with a "Closed for Remodeling" sign and windows with ugly dummies in clothes that were out of style.

7. “…I can do it at last…They’ve had it coming to them for years…” ? Sorry.

8. “If there’s something rotten on the inside, there’s nothing anyone can do about it.” PoA -- I think it's Aunt Marge to Uncle Vernon and Petunia about Harry ... right before he inflates her.

9. “Will you get these ruddy things off us?” HBP -- Uncle Vernon to Dumbledore, about the glasses of mead that were knocking the Dursleys in the head (because they wouldn't drink them).

10. “He scares the other children” HBP -- I think it is the orphanage lady to Dumbledore regarding young Tom Riddle.

11. “Ditch ginger and come and have a pint!” DH -- Some jerks on the road in Tottenham Court Road to Hermione, after the trio has just apparated. They are referring to Ron ("ginger"), because Harry is under the invisibility cloak.

12. “Oh well, that’s better than a whack on the nose with a rusty poker.” It sounds a lot like my Dad's favorite maxims: "I guess it's better than a sharp stick in the eye." Maybe HE said it! LOL (I'm sorry ... I have no idea!)

13. “Why isn’t he coming with us?” DH -- Dudley is asking why Harry isn't going with them when they leave 4PD with Daedalus Diggle and Hestia Jones.

14. “Why’re you staring at the hedge?” CoS -- Dudley to Harry, who is staring at the bush where Dobby is hiding.

15. “Perhaps people have been celebrating Bonfire Night early --…” 5 Bonus points here for the proper name of the speaker. PS/SS -- Muggle newscaster named Ted, the day after the Potters' deaths, referring to all of the sparks the Wizards were firing off to celebrate Voldy's vanquishing.

16. “You can do magic! Surely you can sort out—well – anything!” HBP -- The British Prime Minister to Fudge about all of the murders and catastrophes that had been happening.

17. “What the hell is that?” HBP -- LOL One of my favorites! Uncle Vernon is referring to Kreacher, who has just materialized in the Dursley living room!
