Quote #10

"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.
