Leaky's Daily Quotedown to Deathly Hallows: 68 Days
September 13, 2010, 01:57 AM
There are now only 68 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!
"Remove this foul addition at once! Remove it, I say! You are ruining a great work of art! Where am I? What is going on?"
"Never mind where we are," said Harry, and Phineas Nigellus froze, abandoning his attempts to peel off the painted blindfold.
"Can that possibly be the voice of the elusive Mr. Potter?"
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, "The Goblin's Revenge"
Hee! It’s those little moments that really make the Potter books. In my opinion, they never really come across in the movies. I bet you anything, for instance, that Aunt Muriel’s dialogue at the party is reduced to exposition about Dumbledore’s past and we never get to hear her say that Xenophilous Lovegood looks like an omelette. But we’ll see. Perhaps we can hope for the scene where Phineus is blindfolded.
I don’t know why, but the last part of the quote gives me chills… I guess it just kinda made me realize that the three of them really were on their own, that no one could help them, and that the rest of the world knew that they were missing and were determined to find them…
Phineas wasn’t in the fifth film. I mean they showed like two seconds of him when Dumbledore asked him to go to Grimauld Place, but that was all. I hope they show more of him in this film. Phineas does prove to be a help to the trio.
Can’t wait until the movie comes out! :D
