Twins Fred and George Weasley……started out as students of Hogwarts, both Gryffindors, and eventually became owners of a joke shop called Weasley’s Wizard Wheezes. They were a couple of my favorite characters from the Harry Potter series. They provided lots of fun and entertainment throughout the entire series, even when the series took a darker turn. Below are a few of my favorite quotes from Fred and George….
‘Yeah, he’s nipping off to the Chamber of Secrets for a cup of tea with his fanged servant,’ said George, chortling. (Chamber of Secrets)
George: ‘We tried to shut him in a pyramid,’ he told Harry. ‘But Mum spotted us.’ (Prisoner of Azkaban)
‘What do we want to be Prefects for?’ said George, looking revolted at the very idea. ‘It’d take all the fun out of life.’ (Prisoner of Azkaban)
‘We didn’t give it to him because he was a Muggle!’ said Fred indignantly.
‘No, we gave it to him because he’s a great bullying git,’ said George. (Goblet of Fire)
‘Anyone can speak Troll,’ said Fred dismissively, ‘all you have to do is point and grunt.’ (Goblet of Fire)
‘Yeah, size is no guarantee of power,’ said George. ‘Look at Ginny.’
‘What d’ you mean?’ said Harry.
‘You’ve never been on the receiving end of one of her Bat-Bogey Hexes, have you?’ (Order of the Phoenix)
‘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… (Order of the Phoenix)
‘“E” for “Exceeds Expectations”. And I’ve always thought Fred and I should’ve got “E” in everything, because we exceeded expectations just by turning up for the exams.’ (Order of the Phoenix)
