• “Always.” — Snape

Can be used literally, well, always. This is like Han Solo’s, “I know” or Westley’s “as you wish.” For many, it’s just a word. But when used properly, and directed towards someone you love, it can mean the world.

  • “You’re a Wizard, Harry.” — Hagrid

Best when you’re trying to state the obvious. Even better when you say it in a thick Scottish accent.

  • “Our. new. celebrity.” — Snape

Meant to draw attention to someone who already has a ton of attention. The pauses between the words are VERY. IMPORTANT.

  • “Neither can live while the other survives.” — Professor Trelawney

It’s like when you have a donut and cookie and you want to eat both of them, you should really only eat one of them, but then decided it’s best to eat both so the other isn’t lonely. The donut cannot live while the cookie survives. Make sense?

  • “Just because you have the emotional range of a teaspoon doesn’t mean we all have.” — Hermione

Is your crush being ridiculously thick? Been there, done that, and Hermione has the perfect comeback for it.
