- “I hope you’re pleased with yourselves. We could all have been killed – or worse, expelled. Now if you don’t mind, I’m going to bed.” Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone
- “Harry — I think I’ve just understood something! I’ve got to go to the library!” Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

- “Ron,” said Hermione in a dignified voice, “you are the most insensitive wart I have ever had the misfortune to meet.” Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
- “Just because you’ve got the emotional range of a teaspoon doesn’t mean we all have.” (to Ron, of course) Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
- “What are you doing with all those books anyway?” Ron asked.
“Just trying to decide which ones to take with us,” said Hermione, “when we’re looking for the Horcruxes.”
“Oh, of course,” said Ron, clapping a hand to his forehead. “I forgot we’ll be hunting down Voldemort in a mobile library.” Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
