Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
Memory and the Past Quotes in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
How we cite our quotes:
"How come she married him?" Harry asked miserably. "She hated him!""Nah, she didn't," said Sirius."She started going out with him in seventh year," said Lupin."Once James had deflated his head a bit," said Sirius."And stopped hexing people just for the fun of it," said Lupin. (29.208-212)
This whole business of Professor Snape's worst memory really drives home how tragic Harry's situation is. He knows so little information about his parents that one memory – Snape's worst memory, a memory of James and Lily at their worst – seems more real and tangible to Harry than the vague protests of James's best friends.
