Leaky’s Daily Quotedown to Deathly Hallows: 68 Days


Sep 13, 2010

Posted by EdwardTLC

There are now only 68 days left until “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I” hits theaters! We are posting a quote from the first half of the book every day in celebration and to give us a chance to discuss and ponder the final book as it goes to film. Here is today’s quote!

“Remove this foul addition at once! Remove it, I say! You are ruining a great work of art! Where am I? What is going on?”

“Never mind where we are,” said Harry, and Phineas Nigellus froze, abandoning his attempts to peel off the painted blindfold.

“Can that possibly be the voice of the elusive Mr. Potter?”

Avatar ImageSusmita singh says: Great quote today.Phineas was rude but he helped them and he was doing it on Snape's order.Avatar Imageacnaib3 says: I love Harry Potter !!!Avatar ImageJK.jr. says: LOVE the quote. Phineas is funny.Avatar ImageMaxtina Potter says: LOL! PHINEAS IS FUNNY! And I LOVE LOVE HARRY!Avatar Imagelunaisawesome says: wow thats so weird i just read that last night!Avatar Imageksddancer says: Funny quote!Avatar Imagekiwimci says: I always loved Phineas' narcissism and pomposity. Again it's characters like him that really show off Jo's brilliant sense of humourAvatar Imagemystiqueminx says: Poor Phineus with that blondfoldAvatar ImageGryffindor_Girl_xx says: LOVE the quote! Phineus is really annoying sometimes though ... x)Avatar ImageSmitch says: "Remove this foul addition at once!" I love Phineus's arrogant demands. What a sour little man! I hope they show at least some of his interactions with the trio. It would be a great comic relief, as frustrating and he can be. Avatar ImageJessSnape says: These quotes really make me want to read the books again!! I think I might have to start them tonight:) I really should finish Rick Riordan's new book first!Avatar Imageccoolkid says: i cant wait Avatar Imagetaoist1 says: "you are ruining a great work of art". Too funny.Avatar ImageSlyBones says: I LOVE Phineas! He's so awesome. Avatar ImageGinnyAnn says: Heminone is a genius!!Avatar ImageRuggles says: Hee! It's those little moments that really make the Potter books. In my opinion, they never really come across in the movies. I bet you anything, for instance, that Aunt Muriel's dialogue at the party is reduced to exposition about Dumbledore's past and we never get to hear her say that Xenophilous Lovegood looks like an omelette. But we'll see. Perhaps we can hope for the scene where Phineus is blindfolded. Avatar ImageDawna says: Another great quote! Just finished Half-Blood Prince & onto Deathly Hallows again! I am rereading the series before the movies...but not so close that I make too many comparisons while watching the movie!Avatar ImageNumeroUnoFan says: the blindfold was perfectAvatar ImageMJBDE15 says: This is sucj an awsome part...Avatar ImageAl Sev Potter says: Haha good quote!!!Avatar Imagesnunkiebrian says: hehe whenever i see a quote up here i've always just listened to them! hehe yet another good quote though leaky! xxxAvatar Imageharrypotterfreak101 says: That part was hilarious! I love Phineas Nigellus's sarcastic behaviour.......Avatar Imageemmy1 says: OMG!!! I CAN'T WAIT!! 66 days!! 66 days!!Avatar ImageCarinaPotter says: Nice quote! I don't know why, but the last part of the quote gives me chills... I guess it just kinda made me realize that the three of them really were on their own, that no one could help them, and that the rest of the world knew that they were missing and were determined to find them...Avatar Imagez999993 says: Phineas wasn't in the fifth film. I mean they showed like two seconds of him when Dumbledore asked him to go to Grimauld Place, but that was all. I hope they show more of him in this film. Phineas does prove to be a help to the trio. Can't wait until the movie comes out! :DAvatar ImageiLYooHx3 says: Lolz These Quotes are just so much more interesting to read than from the book. Idk why but they just are!! I mean I love the book and all but I really just love reading them here in leaky!!<33 Avatar Imagelunaisawesome says: @JessSnape don't bother it wasn't half as good as percy jacksonAvatar ImageGiant Squid says: Love Phineus!!Avatar Imageeccentricalice says: I love Phineas's speaking style and the interactions between him and the trio, fantastic!Avatar ImageBless_the_children says: This is just one more of Hermione's strokes of brilliance: first, she realizes they should take Phineas along where he cannot report on them or their time in Gimmauld place. Then, she is smart enough to blindfold him magically. She is a genius!!! Harry would be very dead without her (and Ron).Avatar Imagehewy says: Love these quotes! Just finished the series again (have lost count of the number of times) the UK version since I have these books in paperback and do not wish to ruin the bindings on my hardbacks. Ok I'm weird but that's the way it is.Avatar Imagediv says: at the end phineus played his part gud.. Avatar ImageNot Slytherin says: Phineas did such a great job of playing his part! I really did not imagine that he was operating on Snape's order to help Harry. I loved him, even though (especially because?) he was terribly rude!
