When Harry reminded Hermione that being the Boy Who Lived wasn’t all it was cracked up to be…

‘Harry, don’t go picking a row with Malfoy, don’t forget, he’s a prefect now, he could make life difficult for you ...’

‘Wow, I wonder what it’d be like to have a difficult life?’ said Harry sarcastically.

When Harry went on a magical power trip and rebelled against Uncle Vernon…

‘You’re not allowed to do magic outside school.’

‘Yeah? Try me.’

When Harry gave Umbridge a helpful review of his first DADA teacher…

‘Yeah, Quirrell was a great teacher. There was just that minor drawback of him having Lord Voldemort sticking out of the back of his head!’

When the twins gave Harry the ultimate guide to Hogwarts and he didn’t appreciate it…

... given the Marauder’s Map:

‘What’s this rubbish?'

When Harry tried to make Roonil Wazlib a thing…

‘This is your copy of Advanced Potion-Making, is it, Potter?’

‘Yes,’ said Harry firmly.

‘Then why,’ asked Snape, ‘does it have the name ‘Roonil Wazlib’ written inside the front cover?’

Harry’s heart missed a beat.

‘That’s my nickname,’ he said.’

When Harry got verbal in a nonverbal spells lesson…

‘Do you remember me telling you we are practicing nonverbal spells, Potter?’

‘Yes,’ said Harry stiffly.

‘Yes, sir.’

‘There’s no need to call me ‘sir,’ Professor.’

When Harry hadn’t really grasped the concept of Portkeys…

‘Why are they all standing around that manky old boot?’

When Harry reminded Hermione that he’d actually also noticed he was a Triwizard Champion...

‘The task is two days from now!’

‘Really? I had no idea.’

When Harry seemed prepared to use his hero status for romantic ends…

‘She’s only interested in you because she thinks you’re the Chosen One.’

‘But I am the Chosen One.’

When Harry was fed up with Neville going on and on about Herbology…

‘If you’re interested in plants, you’re better off with Goshawk’s Guide to Herbology. Did you know there's a wizard in Nepal who's growing gravity-resistant trees?’

‘Neville, no offence, but I really don’t care about plants.’

When Harry took standing up to Malfoy to a whole other level…

‘You see, I, unlike you, have been made a prefect, which means that I, unlike you, have the power to hand out punishments.’

‘Yeah,’ said Harry, ‘but you, unlike me, are a git, so get out and leave us alone.’

When Cedric asked how Harry was during the Triwizard Tournament and Harry just said…


Spectacular sass indeed.
