Hysterical parts from HP

Post by Iverian Gnash »

While scrolling through Pottermore, I noticed this article:
The funniest Harry Potter moments

I had forgotten about some of these incidents and couldn't help cracking up as I read them :lol: My favorite is most definitely the last one when Harry shoots back to Professor Snape 'No need to call me "Sir" professor' XD

Personally, I found it rather amusing when Harry was in the Forbidden Forest and informed Professor Umbridge that he 'must not tell lies'. Shooting her own words back at her, huh?

What are some of your favorite laugh out loud moments from the Harry Potter series? Are there any missing from this list you think should have been included?

Oh man. This article was pure gold (particularly the entire Quidditch Commentator section)

It did leave out my favourite funny moment though:
Ron: "Only time I've ever seen Dad as angry as Mum, Fred reckons his left buttock has never been the same since."
Harry: "Yeah, well, passing over Fred's left buttock—"
Fred (coming into the kitchen): "I beg your pardon?"

Oh my lord, I completely forgot about the incident when Dudley asks for the bacon, Harry replies "What's the magic word" and almost gets himself killed by uncle vernon

Re-reading Half Blood Prince and I'd never appreciated before how sassy Bob Ogden is. For a Ministry official, he gets some real zingers in while at the Gaunt's cottage.

"Now I come to think about it, I've seen noses like yours down in the village."
"I don't doubt it, if your son's been let loose on them," said Ogden. "Perhaps we could continue this discussion inside?"

"And you think we're scum, do you?" screamed Gaunt, advancing on Ogden now, with a dirty yellow-nailed finger pointing at his chest. "Scum who'll come running when the Ministry tells 'em to? Do you know who you're talking to, you filthy little Mudblood, do you?"
"I was under the impression that I was speaking to Mr. Gaunt," said Ogden.

My favorite quote comes from Severus Snape. Albus Dumbledore has told him he has to kill him, and we're used to thinking about that scene with lots of melodrama, but Snape's initial reaction is classic Snape:

"Would you like me to do it now?" asked Snape, his voice heavy with irony. "Or would you like a few moments to compose an epitaph?"

One of my absolute favorite scenes in Harry Potter is when Harry is on Felix Felicis in the Half Blood Prince. Especially every interaction he has with Slughorn! Too great lol

One of my favorite moments from Harry Potter is when, in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Harry and Ron find out, at the last minute that to get to the ministry, they have to flush themselves down toilets. I just loved that part.

My favorite part was when Fred and George set off those fireworks on Umbridge and Filch. It's almost like the 5th book, as depressing as it was, also had some of the best scenes.
