Quote Of The Evening – Harry Potter Series, Ron Weasley


Words by Naomi Jeffreys

We all love a bit of Harry Potter, it’s fantastical, magical and very successful.

Perhaps the funniest character was Ronald Weasley portrayed by Rupert Grint, he was a character who always got the best one liners and who would give the audience some comic relief in amongst the gathering dark around Harry Potter himself.

Check out these quotes below:

Ron: [sitting bolt upright in bed] Spiders… the spiders… they want me to tap-dance. And I don’t want to tap-dance!
Harry: You tell those spiders, Ron.
Ron: Yeah, tell them… I’ll tell them…
[falls straight back asleep]

Ron Weasley: [about Hermione’s copy of “The Tales Of Beedle The Bard”] Mum used to read those to me as a kid! “The Wizard and the Hopping Pot,” “Babbity Rabbity And Her Cackling Stump”…
[Harry and Hermione both look lost]
Ron Weasley: Come on! Babitty Rabbity… No?
