"OK Harry. Using this doll, could you point to exactly where it was that Dumbledore touched you?"

I have so many. In fact, if I could, I'd just post the entire scripts from all the movies. I agree with all the ones already posted, so I'll put ones that haven't yet been posted. And these are only movie quotes. If we could include book quotes I'd be here all night!

Fred: Honestly woman, you call yourself our mother. (Philosopher's Stone)

Ron: Sunshine, daisies, butter mellow, turn this stupid fat rat yellow! (Philosopher's Stone)

Draco: Think my name's funny, do you? No need to ask who you are. Red hair, hand-me-down robes? You must be a Weasley. (Philosopher's Stone)

Seamus: I'm half and half, me dad's a muggle, me mam's a witch. Bit of a nasty shock for him when he found out. (Philosopher's Stone)

Oliver: Nasty little buggers. (Philosopher's Stone)

Draco: Wait 'til my father hears about this! This is servant's stuff!
Harry: If I didn't know any better, Draco, I'd say you were scared.
Draco: I'm not scared, Potter! [*random howl*] Did you hear that?
(Philosopher's Stone)

Hermione: Fear of the name only increases fear of the thing itself. (Chamber of Secrets)

Hermione: At least nobody on the Gryffindor team had to buy their way in. They got in on pure talent. (Chamber of Secrets)

Oliver: You can't cancel Quidditch! (Chamber of Secrets)

Ron: Follow the spiders... why can't it be follow the butterflies?! (Chamber of Secrets)

Ron: If Hagrid ever gets out of Azkaban, I'll kill him! (Chamber of Secrets)

Draco: You and your bloody chicken! (Prisoner of Azkaban)

Harry: Messrs Moony, Wormtail, Padfoot and Prongs offer their compliments to Professor Snape, and...
Snape: ...Go on.
Harry: And request that he keep his abnormally large nose out of other people's business.
Snape: Why you insolent little -
Lupin: Professor!
(Prisoner of Azkaban)

Snape: That is the second time you have spoken out of turn, Miss Granger. Tell me, are you incapable of restraining yourself, or do you take pride in being an insufferable know-it-all?
Ron: He's got a point, you know.
(Prisoner of Azkaban)

Lupin: Sirius, be quiet!
Sirius: Be quiet yourself, Remus!
Snape: Listen to you two, quarrelling like an old married couple.
Sirius: Why don't you run along and play with your chemistry set?
(Prisoner of Azkaban)

Dumbledore: In dreams, we enter a world which is entirely our own. (Prisoner of Azkaban)

Draco: My father will hear about this! (Goblet of Fire)

Snape: Don't lie to me! (Goblet of Fire)

Luna: You're just as sane as I am. (Order of the Phoenix)

Fred: You know, George, I've always felt our futures lay outside the world of academic achievement.
George: Fred, I've been thinking exactly the same thing.
(Order of the Phoenix)

Ron: How much are these?
Fred & George: Five galleons.
Ron: How much for me?
Fred & George: Five galleons.
Ron: But I'm your brother!
Fred & George: Ten galleons!
(Half-Blood Prince)

Harry: Sorry, Professor but I must not tell lies. (Deathly Hallows P1)

Snape: If anyone here has any knowledge of Mr Potter's movements this evening, I invite them to step forward... now.
[Harry jumps out like a boss].
Harry: It seems, despite your exhaustive defensive strategies, you still have a bit of a security problem, headmaster.
[The doors open to reveal the entire Order standing in Godlike poses].
(Deathly Hallows P2)

Neville: Yeah?! You and whose army?! (Deathly Hallows P2)

Snape: Look at me. You have your mother's eyes. (Deathly Hallows P2)

Neville: It doesn't matter that Harry's gone. People die everyday! Friends, family. Yeah, we lost Harry tonight. But he's still with us, in here! So's Fred, Remus, Tonks, all of them! They didn't die in vain. But you will! Because you're wrong! Harry's heart did beat for us, for all of us! It's not over! (Deathly Hallows P2)

However, this is my all time favourite:

Harry: GIVE THAT HERE MALFOY OR I'LL KNOCK YOU OFF YOUR BROOM!

Okay I'll stop now...

Whilst I like the Potter films I have to say that I would be hard pressed to remember any single line. I've never mentally categorised the films as ones you remember lines from, but as ones you remember action sequences from.

When I remember films like Big Trouble in Little China, Clerks, Aliens, The Fifth Element, The Princess Bride, The Italian Job, Zulu and the like I think of the quotable lines.

But When I think of the Harry Potter films I remember flying cars, Quidditch games, stone chessmen, giant spiders, Deatheaters and so on. They are far more of a visual event for me rather than an audio one.

I loved it when they included Quirrel in Part 2: "STUDENTS OUT OF BED! STUDENTS OUT OF BED!"

I like this one.
Hermione:'Now if you two don't mind, I'm going to bed before either of you come up with another clever idea to get us killed - or worse ,expelled.
Ron:She needs to sort out her priorities!

I loved some of the dialogue in POA:

Ron: [sitting bolt upright in bed] Spiders... the spiders... they want me to tap-dance. And I don't want to tap-dance!
Harry: You tell those spiders, Ron.
Ron: Yeah, tell them... I'll tell them...
[falls straight back to sleep]

Professor Snape: That is the second time you have spoken out of turn, Miss Granger. Tell me, are you incapable of restraining yourself, or do you take pride in being an insufferable know-it-all?
Ron: He's got a point, you know.

Ron: She's gone mental, Hermione has. I mean, not that she wasn't always mental, but now it's out in the open for everyone to see!

Dumbledore: Professor Kettleburn, our Care of Magical Creatures teacher for many years, has decided to retire in order to spend more time with his remaining limbs.

Ron: Neville, you're supposed to stroke it!

Sorry, this one is from the books, but would like to add it as it gets me every time!

"But we're not stupid - we know we are called Gred and Forge".

another favourite of mine comes from the final book when Percy comes to fight against Voldermort. I can't remember if its Fred or George who says it:

"We must look to our prefects in times like these"

Sirius Black - "You really are the brightest witch of your age"

One that I like that comes up very often and is delivered in different ways by different people is "No idea"

My favourite is short and sweet. In answer to Harry's question about where the train will take him, Dumbledore says "On"

In fact, I love every line in the limbo scene.

I don't know why, but the one that sticks in my head is

Draco: Scared, Potter?

Harry: You wish.

*cue the tears*

Snape
Well, well, Lupin. Out for a little walk…....in the moonlight, are we? (POA)

I may vomit! (OOTP)

Slughorn
Farewell, Aragog, king of arachnids, whose long and faithful friendship those who knew you won't forget! Though your body will decay, your spirit lingers on in the quiet, web-spun places of your forest home. (HBP)

Bellatrix
You stupid elf! You could have ]killed me! (DHP1)


I just love the way they emphasise certain words,

Not sure if it's the film or the book this one (I'm sure it's both)

Mrs Weasley - Oh Ron, a prefect. That's everyone in the family now!
Twins - What are we, the neighbours?
This gets me everytime! I remember reading that and I was in stitche to a point that I couldn't breath...thought I was going to die!

"I would assume that you were going to offer me refreshment, but the evidence so far suggests that that would be optimistic to the point of foolishness".

"Of course, if I were a Death Eater, I would make sure to find out my own jam preferences before impersonating myself".

Both said by Dumbledore in the Half Blood Prince. I don't think he actually says it in the movie, but they're definitely in the books

Horace Slughorn - It was a student who gave me Francis. One Spring afternoon I discovered a bowl on my desk, just a few inches of clear water in it. Floating on the surface was a flower petal. As I watched, it sank. Just when it reached the bottom, it transformed into a wee fish. It was beautiful magic, wondrous to behold. The flower petal had come from a lily, your mother. The day I came downstairs, the day the bowl was empty, was the day your mother....

"Turn to page three hundred and ninety four."
That's one of my favourites Most of Snape's lines are funny. This one is also good:

Umbridge the Toad: You applied first for the Defence Against the Dark Arts post, correct?
Snape: Yes
Umbridge the Toad: But you were unsuccessful?
Snape: Obviously

Then Ron Weasley laughs and Snape whacks him on the head with a book I think it's the way he says it that makes it funny.
