They were great in every scene really…


They were great in every scene really…

  1. “Oh, are you a Prefect, Percy?” said one of the twins, with an air of great surprise. “You should have said something, we had no idea.”
    “Hang on, I think I remember him saying something about it,” said the other twin. “Once– ”
    “Or twice–”
    “A minute–”
    “All summer–”
    “Oh, shut up,” said Percy the Prefect.
  2. “Now, you two – this year, you behave yourselves. If I get one more owl telling me you’ve – you’ve blown up a toilet or –”
    “Blown up a toilet? We’ve never blown up a toilet.”
    “Great idea though, thanks, Mum.”
    “It’s not funny. And look after Ron.”
    “Don’t worry, ickle Ronniekins is safe with us.”
    “Shut up,” said Ron again.

    “Don’t, Ginny, we’ll send you loads of owls.”
    “We’ll send you a Hogwarts toilet seat.”
  3. “We tried to shut him in a pyramid,” he (George) told Harry. “But Mum spotted us.”
  4. “Where is Wood?” said Harry, suddenly realising he wasn’t there.
    “Still in the showers,” said Fred. “We think he’s trying to drown himself.”
  5. “What are we doing here? Has something gone wrong?”
    “Oh, no, Ron,’ came Fred’s voice, very sarcastically. ‘No, this is exactly where we wanted to end up.”
  6. “Who’re you going with then?” asked Ron.
    “Angelina,” said Fred promptly, without a trace of embarrassment.
    “What?” said Ron, taken aback. “You’ve already asked her?”
    “Good point,” said Fred. He turned his head and called across the common room, “Oi! Angelina!” Angelina, who had been chatting to Alicia Spinnet near the fire, looked over at him.
    “What?” she called back.
    “Want to come to the ball with me?” Angelina gave Fred an appraising sort of look.
    “All right, then,” she said, and turned back to Alicia and carried on chatting, with a bit of a grin on her face.
    “There you go,” said Fred to Harry and Ron, “piece of cake.”
  7. “I love hearing Mum shouting at someone else,” said Fred, with a satisfied smile on his face…
  8. “I don’t believe it! I don’t believe it! Oh, Ron, how wonderful! A prefect! That’s everyone in the family!”
    “What are Fred and I, next-door neighbours?” said George indignantly…
  9. “So top grade’s “O” for “Outstanding”,” she was saying, “and then there’s “A” –
    “No, “E”,” George corrected her [Hermione], “”E” for “Exceeds Expectations”. And I’ve always though Fred and I should’ve got “E” in everything, because we exceeded expectations just by turning up for the exams.”
  10. “George,” said Fred, “I think we’ve outgrown full-time education.”
    “Yeah, I’ve been feeling that way myself,” said George lightly.
    “Time to test our talents in the real world, d’ you reckon?” asked Fred.
    “Definitely,” said George.
    And before Umbridge could say a word, they raised their wands and said together: “Accio brooms!”

    “We won’t be seeing you,” Fred told Professor Umbridge, swinging his leg over his broomstick.
    “Yeah, don’t bother to keep in touch,” said George, mounting his own.
    Fred looked around at the assembled students, and at the silent, watchful crowd.
    “If anyone fancies buying a Portable Swamp, as demonstrated upstairs, come to number ninety-three, Diagon Alley — Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes,” he said in a loud voice, “Our new premises!”
    “Special discounts to Hogwarts students who swear they’re going to use our products to get rid of this old bat,” added George, pointing at Professor Umbridge.
  11. “How you feeling, Georgie?”
    “Saint-like. I’m holy. I’m holey, Fred. Get it?”
    “The whole wide world of ear-related humour and you go ‘I’m holey?’ That’s pathetic.”
    “Reckon I’m still better looking than you.”
