Leaky’s Daily Quotedown to Deathly Hallows: 39 Days


Oct 12, 2010

Posted by EdwardTLC

There are now only 39 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!

“How do you feel, Georgie?” whispered Mrs. Weasley.

George’s fingers groped for the side of his head.

“Saintlike,” he murmured.

“What’s wrong with him?” croaked Fred, looking terrified. “Is his mind affected?”

“Saintlike,” repeated George, opening his eyes and looking up at his brother. “You see . . . I’m holy. Holey, Fred, geddit?”

In addition, here are the missed quotes from days past. Enjoy!
Quotedown 40:

The two workmen made identical movements, and Harry mirrored them without conscious thought: All three of them drew their wands. Ron,a few seconds late in realizing what was going on, lunged across the table, pushing Hermione sideways onto her bench. The force of the Death Eaters’ spells shattered the tiled wall where Ron’s head had just been, as Harry, still invisible, yelled, “Stupefy!”

Quotedown 41:

“Undetectable Extension Charm,”said Hermione. “Tricky, but I think I’ve done it okay; anyway,I managed to fit everything we need in here.” She gave the fragile-looking bag a little shake and it echoed like a cargo hold as a number of heavy objects rolled around inside it. “Oh, damn, that’ll be the books,” she said, peering into it, “and I had them all stacked by subject. . . . Oh well. . . . Harry, you’d better take the Invisibility Cloak. Ron, hurry up and change. . . .”

Quotedown 42:

Mrs. Weasley ran forward, but the hug Bill bestowed upon her was perfunctory. Looking directly at this father, he said, “Mad-Eye’s dead.”

Avatar ImageLizzydizzy says: Yay first! Lucky Hermione had that bag huh? How heavy must it be? RIP Mad-EyeAvatar Imagechikitcorpuzvesterbaek says: Smart Hermione... what would the boys do without her?Avatar ImageMary11_hplvr4l says: my fav George quote (:Avatar ImageBlossom says: Great Hermione quote.She's so smart.I agree with chikitcorpuzvesterbaek.What would Harry and Ron do with her?Avatar Imagediv says: hermione is hilarious...and ya the bag must be very heavy.. she is very far-sighted ...n i love fred n george..mad-eye was a great auror.. Ron and Harry gave a very quick counter attack..Avatar ImageJK.jr. says: All of these quotes are so good!!! Poor Fred and GeorgeAvatar Imagemystiqueminx says: holey- saintlike,,, my favourite quote lmaoAvatar Imagehonigmuffin says: I want Hermione's bag so bad O__OAvatar ImageSohumdore says: Funny George! These quotes are so different!Avatar ImageBless_the_children says: I was terrified when George got hurt - it really deepened my thoughts that Snape might be evil - arg. Leave it to George to make a joke at a time like this. Poor Weasleys - MR. Weasley attacked, Bill scarred, Ron splinched three times, George earless, Fred dead - it's all too much! You'd think Percy would have made up with his family sooner :<Avatar Imagemuggleborngirl says: Love the Wesley twins :) That just made my dayAvatar Imagelttlmsravnclaw07 says: I loves these quotes. They make me happy inside!Avatar Imagetealover says: I was so shocked when no one else but Harry had arrived at the Weasley's with the portkeys when I read the book the first time. It's JK Rowling's ability to constantly surpirse and work in these scenarios that is such a part of her masterful writing. Just as your mmind thinks it knows what's coming next, she takes the story on another path. I love it! Avatar Imagetaoist1 says: Love this site but seriously, how hard is it to put qoute everyday?Avatar ImageNumeroUnoFan says: haha im so stoked on this being so closeAvatar ImageFresca says: These are great quotes. The dangers of the Wizarding War are brought out loud and clear. Hermione is really clever to have come up with the idea of the Undetectable Extension Charm. Poor George... quick thinking under pain though to come up with 'Saintlike' because he was now holey.Avatar Imagedilysroot says: The Undetectable Extension Charm must be the same one used to make the pup tent into a small flat. I love magic! George's remarks as he comes out of being knocked out and wounded is really the truth, he is saintlike or a least godlike, being one of the Trickster Twins, who are classic heroes of Native American mythology. The fact that one of the Twins is actually killed in the book is a really anomaly of story telling or an extreme way of showing just how powerful evil is. Still, its one decision JKR made that I don't understand. Avatar ImageGryffindor_Girl_xx says: Nice quotes! :D I CANNOT WAIT FOR DH1 ANY MORE!!!Avatar ImageLost Northern says: haaaaaaaa hermione so smart i wisht i could be smart like her XDAvatar ImageNot Slytherin says: Whoa ... Quote-a-rama! -I love this bit in the cafe. Ron's first instinct is to protect Hermione. -And, who can't help but love that beaded bag? Hermione is a genius! -One of the only serious quotes from Fred in the series, when he is worried about his brother ... RIP Fred. :o( -RIP Mad-Eye. :o(Avatar ImageHarrypotterultrafan says: love hermione:D she is so organised, without her, ron and harry wouldn't be prepared at al!! R.I.P mad-eye :'(Avatar ImageLonewolf_ says: I love the saintlike quote!^__^8DAvatar ImageKeaHellstorm says: Fred and George = Epicness The photo is awesome :DAvatar ImageWeenyOwl says: That Extension Charm must somehow minimize the weight as well as compress the size of the objects contained within. Otherwise there would be no way that anyone could carry either Hermione's beaded bag or Perkins' tentful of furniture. Just imagine how much fuel the Muggle world wouldn't have to burn to transport things if we only had this particular bit of magic! We could stop worrying so much about global warming. In fact, a bag like Hermione's could be an alternative to traveling by Apparation, Floo Powder, broomstick or flying Ford Anglia - just climb in and have your friend attach it to his or her owl!Avatar ImageExpectoPatronum512 says: the first one is my absolute favourtite! I am in love with fred and george! I nearly cried about Mad Eye though :'(Avatar ImageGiant Squid says: Great parts! Happy, tragic, blood pounding parts!Avatar Imagehedwigrulz says: What would we do with out the twins? Life would be miserable... They can make everyone laugh in the darkest hour As for the Moody qoute, this was one of the scenes that made me cry when I was reading the book (Ive read this book three times and I cried more each time)Avatar Imagejoeys_mommy says: I LOVE FRED AND GEORGE! Nuff Said :P 37 Days though!!! I buy my pre-sell tickets Friday!Avatar Imageharrypotterfreak101 says: That quote brought tears to my eyes. The bond between the Weasleys is truly heart-warming.Avatar Imagetealover says: Can you imagine Harry and Ron on their own? Disapparating out of the wedding with only the shirts on their backs? Where would they go? Hermione is my favorite character in DH. Avatar ImageSilvery Doe says: Oh, no! The tears are already welling up. I can't wait to read it again!Avatar Imagesomethingtolivefor says: taoist1 My thought exactly! ..... and yeah, where can I get a bag like Hermione's ???? LOLAvatar Imagechikitcorpuzvesterbaek says: @somethingtolivefor: we all want a bag like Hermione's...Avatar Imagechikitcorpuzvesterbaek says: @somethingtolivefor: we all want a bag like Hermione's...Avatar Imagefredluver14 says: loooooove fred and george's humor.Avatar Imagegreenfinch says: "I forgot we're going to be hunting down Voldemort in a mobile library."Avatar Imagepotterfantasy says: George is so funny ! he can make jokes anytime, and i think more people should be like that, instead of always complaining ! people should make the best of every situation, and that's what the twins do, and i give them praise for that <3 RIP mad eye !!! constant vigilence i cant believe voldemort had his name tabooed ! what an idiot Avatar Imageksddancer says: Cool! I cant wait!!!!!!!!!!!Avatar Imagestregs12 says: George's quote was my favorite. It was so funny I just burst out laughing when I read that.
