"Yeah, but there’s still the giant squid," said Ron. He didn’t sound anxious— if anything, he sounded hopeful. Hermione noticed his tone of voice and frowned.HP4
He climbed into the common room and found Ron and Hermione having a blazing row. Standing ten feet apart, they were bellowing at each other, each scarlet in the face.HP4
Krum had just arrived at their table clutching two butterbeers.
“No idea,” said Ron mulishly, looking up at him. “Lost her, have you?”
Krum was looking very surly again.
“Vell, if you see her, tell her I haff drinks,” he said, and he slouched off.
“Made friends with Viktor Krum, have you, Ron?”
Percy had bustled over, rubbing his hands together and looking extremely pompous. “Excellent! That’s the whole point, you know— international magical cooperation!”
"Of course they are — did you expect me to keep those fangs Malfoy gave me?"
“No, I mean, they’re different from how they were before he put that hex on you… they’re all…straight and — and normalsized.”
Hermione suddenly smiled very mischievously, and Harry noticed it too. It was a very different smile from the one he remembered.
"Twitchy little ferret, aren’t you, Malfoy?" said Hermione scathingly, and she, Harry, and Ron went up the marble staircase laughing heartily.HP4
"You’re joking, Weasley!" said Malfoy, behind them. "You’re not telling me someone’s asked that to the ball? Not the long-molared Mudblood?"
Harry and Ron both whipped around, but Hermione said loudly, waving to somebody over Malfoy’s shoulder, “Hello, Professor Moody!”
Malfoy went pale and jumped backward, looking wildly around for Moody, but he was still up at the staff table, finished his stew.
Hermione— who are you going to the ball with?" said Ron.
He kept springing this question on her, hoping to startle her into a response by asking it when she least expected it. However, Hermione merely frowned and said, “I’m not telling you, you’ll just make fun of me.
"Oh I see," Hermione said, bristling. "So basically, you’re going to take the best-looking girl who’ll have you, even if she’s completely horrible?"
“Er— yeah, that sounds about right,” said Ron.
Right little ray of sunshine, aren’t you?" said Ron. "You and Professor Trelawney should get together sometime.HP4
"You two are so stupid!" she shouted, stamping her foot on the ground, tears splashing down her front. Then, before either of them could stop her, she had given both of them a hug and dashed away, now positively howling.
"Barking mad," said Ron, shaking his head.HP4-359
Ron grinned nervously at him, and Harry grinned back. Hermione burst in tears.HP4-358
"Malfoy got Hermione!" Ron said.
He forced Hermione to show Snape her teeth— she was doing her best to hide them with her hands, though this was difficult as they had now grown down past her collar. Pansy Parkinson and the other Slytherin girls were doubled up with silent giggles, pointing at Hermione from behind Snape’s back.
Snape looked coldly at Hermione, then said, “I see no difference.”HP4-300
"I didn’t put my name in," Harry said blankly. "You know I didn’t."
Both of them stared just as blankly back.HP4-272
"Oh no, really?" said Hermione, shooting a repressive look at Ron, who, staring at Hagrid’s odd hairstyle, had just opened his mouth to say something about it.
"Yeah," said Hagrid sadly. " ‘s okay though, I’ve got ‘em in separate boxes now. Still got abou’ twenty."
"Well, that’s lucky," said Ron. Hagrid missed the sarcasm.HP4-264
…Though I must say, neither of their beards is anything like as fine as yours.”
Fred and George set off for the hospital wing, accompanied by Lee, who was howling with laughter and Harry, Ron, and Hermione, also chortling, went in to breakfast.HP4-260
