It’s Harry’s third year at Hogwarts; not only does he have a new “Defense Against the Dark Arts” teacher, but there is also trouble brewing.

Spiders… the spiders… they want me to tap-dance. And I don’t want to tap-dance!
– Ron
You tell those spiders, Ron.
– Harry
Yeah, tell them… I’ll tell them…
– Ron

For in dreams, we enter a world that is entirely our own. Let him swim in the deepest ocean or glide over the highest cloud.
– Dumbledore

A word of caution: dementors are vicious creatures. They will not distinguish between the one they hunt and the one who gets in their way. Therefore I must warn each and every one of you to give them no reason to harm you. It’s not in the nature of a dementor to be forgiving. But you know happiness can be found even in the darkest of times, when one only remembers to turn on the light.
– Dumbledore

I expect you’re tired of hearing this, but you look so like your father. Except your eyes. You have…
– Sirius Black
My mother’s eyes.
– Harry
It’s cruel that I got to spend so much time with James and Lily, and you so little. But know this; the ones that love us never really leave us. And you can always find them in here.
– Sirius Black

How did you get there? I… I was talking to you there! And now you’re there!
– Ron
What’s he talking about Harry?
– Hermione
I dunno. Honestly Ron, how can people be in two places at once?
– Harry

A child’s voice, however honest and true, is meaningless to those who’ve forgotten how to listen.
– Dumbledore

The very first time I saw you Harry, I recognized you immediately. Not by your scar, by your eyes. They’re your mother; Lily’s. Yes, I knew her. You mother was there for me at a time when no one else was. Not only was she a singularly gifted witch, she was also an uncommonly kind woman. She had a way of seeing the beauty in others, even, and perhaps most especially, when that person couldn’t see it in themselves. Your father, James, however, had a certain, shall we say, talent for trouble. A talent, rumor has it, he passed onto you. You’re more like them then you know, Harry. In time you’ll come to see just how much.
– Professor Lupin

Expecto Patronum!
– Harry

Ah, come to see the show?
– Malfoy
You! You foul, loathsome, evil little cockroach!
– Hermione
Hermione, no! He’s not worth it.
– Ron
Malfoy! Are you okay? Come on, let’s go!
– Vincent Crabbe
Quick! Not a word to anyone! Understood?
– Malfoy
That felt good.
– Hermione
Not good, brilliant!
– 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!
– Ron

Why you insolent, little…
– Professor Snape
…Professor.
– Professor Lupin

Now repeat after me – without wands please – repeat after me, Riddikulus.
– Professor Lupin
Riddikulus!
– Class
Very good. A little louder please, and very clearly. Rid-di-kulus.
– Professor Lupin
Riddikulus!
– Class
This class is ridiculous.
– Malfoy

Bloody hell!
– Ron

Who do you think that is?
– Ron
Professor R. J. Lupin.
– Hermione
Do you know everything?
– Ron
How is it she knows everything?
– Ron
It’s on his suitcase, Ronald.
– Hermione
Oh.
– Ron

What would you have done, Sirius?
– Peter Pettigrew
I would have died! I would have died rather than betray my friends, as we would have done for you!
– Sirius Black

I solemnly swear that I am up to no good.
– Harry
Mischief managed.
– Harry
Nox.
– Harry

He was their friend, and he betrayed them. He was their *friend*! I hope he finds me! Cause when he does, I’m gonna be ready. When he does, I’m gonna kill him!
– Harry

Well, well, Lupin. Out for a little walk… in the moonlight, are we?
– Professor Snape

What you doin’ down there?
– Stan Shunpike
I fell over.
– Harry
What you fell over for?
– Stan Shunpike
I didn’t do it on purpose.
– Harry
Well come on then! Let’s not wait for the grass to grow!
– Stan Shunpike

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.
– Dumbledore

Sorry about the bite, I reckon that twinges a bit.
– Sirius Black
A bit? A bit? You almost tore my leg off!
– Ron
I *was* going for the rat. Normally, I have a very sweet disposition as a dog. In fact, more than once, James suggested that I make the change permanent. The tail I could live with. But the fleas? They’re murder.
– Sirius Black

Well?
– Dumbledore
He’s free. We did it.
– Harry
Did what? Good night.
– Dumbledore

Nice doggie… nice doggie…
– Ron
