How we cite our quotes:

Quote #7

"Excellent," said Fred, who had followed Harry through the portrait hole. "I need to visit Zonko's, I'm nearly out of Stink Pellets."

Harry threw himself into a chair beside Ron, his spirits ebbing away. Hermione seemed to read his mind.

"Harry, I'm sure you'll be able to go next time," she said. (8.1.29-31)

Hermione's compassionate and perceptive nature comes out yet again here, as she quickly zeros in on Harry's sudden mopey attitude after hearing about Hogsmeade.

Quote #8

Hermione went very red, put down her hand, and stared at the floor with her eyes full of tears. It was a mark of how much the class loathed Snape that they were all glaring at him, because every one of them had called Hermione a know-it-all at least once [...] (9.4.33)

The Gryffindors function like a big family here, looking out for one of their own against the ultimate, bullying outsider, Snape.

Quote #9

"Come on, Hermione, it's Christmas. Harry deserves a break."

Hermione bit her lip, looking extremely worried.

"Are you going to report me?" Harry asked her, grinning.

"Oh – of course not – but honestly, Harry –" (10.3.89-92)

We love the details about Hermione here – biting her lip, pausing between her words. She's such a worrywart.
