Friendship Quotes

How we cite our quotes:

Quote #13

Without knowing what he was doing, he started forward, but there was a sudden movement on either side of him and two pairs of hands grabbed him and held him back [...] "No, Harry!" Hermione gasped in a petrified whisper; Ron, however, spoke to Black. "If you want to kill Harry, you'll have to kill us too!" he said fiercely, though the effort of standing upright was draining him of still more color [...] (19.79-80)

Hermione and Ron's actions in this scene speak volumes about their friendship with Harry and about their own characters. Hermione, scared as she is, helps yank Harry back from danger while Ron, despite the pain he's in, manages to speak up boldly to Black.
