There are now only 79 days left until "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I" hits theaters!  We are posting a quote from the first half of the book every day in celebration and to give us a chance to discuss and ponder the final book as it goes to film. Here is today's quote!

"I believe that the last time I saw the sword of Gryffindor leave its case was when Professor Dumbledore used it to break open a ring."
     - Phineas Nigellus
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, "The Goblin's Revenge "

Phineas was a true Slytherin. He was loyal to Dumbledore when he had to be, but really would rather take care of his own skin. He reminds me of Snape, in his sarcasm and his attitude to students. I wonder how the trio will get the information about the sword, if not from Phineas?

The First look recap mentioned something about voldemort visions and dreams explaining the nature of the remaining horcruxes since they weren’t explained in HBP movie as in book. My guess is they did something similar to explain that the sword is imbued with basilisk venom. CAN’T WAIT!!!

I am sure the line will be attributed to someone else. Or else Hermione will have a brainstorm about the sword absorbing the basilisk venom without any sort of prompt.

So sad the movies will be over soon, but i can’t wait until DH comes out! I think you only get like a glimpse of Phineas Nigellus in the 5th film so i wonder how they are going to do him in this one.

I love Harry Potter and all my friends call me crazy, but honestly, i cried when I saw the trailer for this film. My whole wall has got posters of the deathly hallows on it and i actually wet myself once when dad said that there had been a fire on the set( Not liturally, i just needed to go to the bathroom really quickly)
