Best Minerva McGonagall line?
How do you choose just one? There are so many amazing moment from this absolutely amazing character! I'm going to resort to listing, since there is no way I am going to put just one line down. McGonagall is one of my favourite HP characters because J.K. wrote her perfectly. She is clearly an authority figure and, unlike Dumbledore, she wasn't a complete Harry-fangirl, but, again unlike Dumbledore, I always thought she would sacrifice everything to keep those safe she loves. Ok, I'm going to try not to get emotional over McGonagall while you enjoy the following lines:
- 'We'll leave you to deal with the monster, Gilderoy. Your skills, after all, are legend.' - Chamber of Secrets (I think she knew all along.)
- 'They are supposed to be out of bed, you blithering idiot.' - Deathly Hallows
- 'I will not have you, in the course of a simple evening, besmirching that name by behaving like a babbling, bumbling band of baboons.' - Goblet of Fire
- 'I've always wanted to use that spell!' - Deathly Hallows
- 'BOOM!' - Deathly Hallows
Round of gratuitous applause for the genius that is McGonagall and the beauty that is Maggie Smith's performance.
What is your favourite McGonagall line? Did you also fail and make a list instead?
