‘To Harry James Potter,’” he read, and Harry’s insides contracted with a sudden excitement, “I leave the Snitch he caught in his first Quidditch match at Hogwarts, as a reminder of the rewards of perseverance and skill.’

Poor Scrimgeour, he tried to be a good MoM, but he should have listened to Harry. He died strong though, protecting our boy!Avatar Imagedoughboy6390 says: Omg me too can't wait for that moment. I love when Heromine snaps at the right people!Avatar Imagebkruger says: I like this quote because it helps to show the mysteriousness that Dumbledore has, even in death. Hermione rocks in this part and i can't wait to see it in the movie as well. :)Avatar Imagehabis88 says: OMG i like this part...its was such a suspence...Avatar Imagelunalovewentz says: So anticlimatic tho, Harry felt. Thinking ok here he is gonna put his life on the line for a dead man and all he gets is a snitch??? At this point he's not sure what to do or what to think. Heromine however rocks!Avatar Imageazaadpotter says: Hermione completely rocks here.

Avatar Imageforgetmenot_007 says: Can't wait to see this part in the movie!! :-)Avatar Imagedevilskinn says: So many exciting things in this one too! (Oh my God, everything is so co-related and hyper-symbolic in this book that one phrase can really blow one's mind away!) First of all, that Scrimgeour (who will die shortly after) is reading the will of Albus (it reminds us that he is dead, that the Ministry knows not of his plans with Harry, that he does have the end mostly figured out, that he still educates Harry, that he is a genius for linking the Snitch to the Resurrection Stone and so on). Secondly, about the nature of the gift, related to the characteristics of Harry and to its first year (and how nice it is to have the vision of him being a child again), to its father (through name and sport). Thirdly, that it encompasses a Hollow. Blimey, the suspense!Avatar ImageJK.jr. says: I agree with everyone above, I absolutely cannot wait to see Hermione rip on Scimegor!!!Avatar ImageTheGleek77 says: omg I cant' wait for this part!

I can't wait to see Hermione freak out on him. I hope they make it like in the book. Yay! only like 66 days or so left!Avatar Imageharrypotterfreak101 says: That wasn't a bad quote. It was an exciting part when they got the things that Dumbledore left on his will.

Avatar ImageNot Slytherin says: Yeah, this scene was great. Even though the gifts seem ... useless, just trinkets ... the trio doesn't give the Ministry an inch.
