If it kills by looking people in the eye, why is it no one's dead?
Because no one did look it in the eye. Not directly, at least. Colin saw it through his camera. Justin... Justin must've seen the basilisk through Nearly Headless Nick. Nick got the full blast of it, but he's a ghost; he couldn't die again. And Hermione... had the mirror! I bet you anything she was using it to look around corners in case it came along.
And Mrs. Norris? I'm pretty sure she didn't have a camera or a mirror, Harry.
The water. There was water on the floor that night. She only saw the basilisk's reflection.
Father always said that Dumbledore was the worst thing that ever happened to this place.
[disguised as Goyle] You're wrong!
What? You think there's someone here who's worse than Dumbledore? Well? Do you?
[disguised as Goyle] ... Harry Potter?
Good one, Goyle. You're absolutely right.
We play our game, Hufflepuff doesn't stand a chance. We're stronger, quicker and smarter.
And not to mention they're dead scared that Harry'll petrify them if they fly anywhere near him.
Well, that too.
Howler (Mrs. Weasley):
RONALD WEASLEY! HOW DARE YOU STEAL THAT CAR! I AM ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTED! YOUR FATHER'S NOW FACING AN INQUIRY AT WORK, AND IT'S ENTIRELY YOUR FAULT! IF YOU PUT ANOTHER *TOE* OUT OF LINE, WE'LL BRING YOU STRAIGHT HOME! Oh and Ginny, dear, congratulations on making Gryffindor. Your father and I are *so* proud. [sticks out its ribbon "tongue" at Ron and tears itself up]
[Harry and Ron are staring at each other after changing into Crabbe and Goyle]
[in own voice] Bloody Hell!
We still sound like ourselves. You need to sound more like Crabbe.
[in lower voice] Um... Bloody hell
Let me introduce you to your new Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher... me. Gilderoy Lockhart, Order of Merlin, Third Class, Honorary member of the Dark Force Defense League, and five times winner of Witch Weekly's Most Charming Smile Award. But I don't talk about that; I didn't get rid of the Banden Banshee by smiling at him.
You were seen. By no less than seven Muggles! Do you have any idea how serious this is? You have risked the exposure of our world! Not to mention the damage you inflicted on a Whomping Willow that's been on these grounds since before you were born!
Honestly, Professor Snape, I think it did more damage to us.
Silence! I assure you that were you in Slytherin and your fate rested with me, the both of you would be on the train home tonight!
