Leaky’s Daily Quotedown to Deathly Hallows: 47 Days


Oct 04, 2010

Posted by EdwardTLC

There are now only 47 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!

“Seventeen, eh!” said Hagrid as he accepted a bucket-sized glass of wine from Fred. “Six years ter the day we met, Harry, d’yeh remember it?”

“Vaguely,” said Harry, grinning up at him. “Didn’t you smash down the front door, give Dudley a pig’s tail, and tell me I was a wizard?”

Can't wait it so close. Avatar ImageHarryPotterGirl (Hermione) says: I love that part!Avatar ImageFresca says: Hagrid could and did break the rules, but he did so with a kind heart and a sense of justice at the same time! It was good that Harry could look back on his rescue at seventeen, and have a chuckle with Hagrid. The Durselys were abusive to Harry, but they did not break him. Good choice of quote!Avatar ImageJessSnape says: I love how sarcastic Harry becomes the older he gets... definitely appeals to the older readers of the HP series:) Not that I really need to have a reason to read them over, and over, and over again!!Avatar Image2tal says: I picture Harry visiting Hagrid when they are old. Hagrid and Madam Maxime had kids and Grawp is their uncle. Harry and Hagrid are comparing tales and pictures of their grand kids. It'd be grand!Avatar ImageWeenyOwl says: Not just abused kids - I felt bad that I couldn't send my own kid a Hagrid (and an invitation to attend Hogwarts) the day he turned 11! On top of everything else, I love that big, strong, tough, don't-mess-with-me Hagrid also likes to knit, bake and garden, wears an apron, carries a little flowered umbrella and gets teary-eyed easily. He is so totally secure in his masculinity - the absolute antithesis of the macho bully who calls other kids 'f----t.' I wish we had someone like him patrolling all the hallways and schoolbuses in the world.Avatar Imagehonigmuffin says: Oh, if only I could have a conversation like this with someone ;DAvatar ImageCharlieNevin says: "I forget the details..."Avatar ImageHarrypotterultrafan says: HAHAHA :D love this quote:) i like the little jokes between them......"vaguely" ;DAvatar ImageCharsis says: O, Dear old Hagrid. Does he actually say this in the movie? Well in about 47 days we'll find out =PAvatar ImageGryffindor_Girl_xx says: I <3 HAGRID!!!Avatar ImageMJBDE15 says: EPIC!!!Avatar Imagehp931 says: Hagrid- (HAG- rid) (pronoun) the savior of abused children and the bringger of hope. Though Hagrids ussally have a hard outer shell, they often like domestic mother-y hobbies. That is what I think Hargids are all about. That is one of the best quetes! 6 years seems like so long ago but really it's not. Just alot happend.Avatar ImageDawna says: Sweet moment, shows how far they have come together!Avatar ImageNumeroUnoFan says: such a funny momentsAvatar ImageSohumdore says: hehe love hagrid!Avatar ImageAlice Weasley says: Great memories :)Avatar Imageharrypotterfreak101 says: Ironically hilarious!

Avatar Imagepigwey says: i'm dying in wait lolAvatar Imageksddancer says: Such a sweet quote!Avatar Imagedilysroot says: This is the perfect quote for today. I wish I could be Huge and Magical when faced with other people bullying people just because they are - what did Aunt Petunia say when she described her sister? strange, freak, not "normal" Avatar Imagebudgie says: A truly memorable introduction!Avatar Imagebudgie says: Great avatar pigwey! Avatar ImageMistic Willow says: Yes!!! indeed I loved this saying from Harry, almost as much as when Hagrid said when I first met you'all you were nothing but a bunch of misfits!! and Ron said and we still are a bunch of misfits!!!!Avatar ImageMasterT348 says: I saved up all the money for my friends and i to see it , i saved the money for the video game, and any addictional thingsAvatar ImageSlyBones says: Clever.
