Harry: “Nimbus 2000 Firebolt Potter, you were named after the two best racing brooms in the world.”

Harry: “Treacle Tart Potter, you were named after the best dessert known to wizardkind.”

Harry: “Listen, James, I…”
Albus: “I’m Albus.”
Harry: “Sorry. I have so many kids. It’s hard to remember all your names.”

Harry: “Okay, I know you don’t like having ‘Severus’ as your middle name, but just know that we almost went with ‘Albus Voldemort Potter.'”
Albus: “You had it in for me from the start, didn’t you?”

When your dad is the Chosen One and can Apparate right to your bed at Hogwarts.
—Hagrid’s Helper

Harry: “I know you’re scared, but let me tell you the first words I heard Dumbledore say. ‘Nitwit! Blubber! Oddment! Tweak!'”
Albus: “What?”
Harry: “It’s Klingon. It means, ‘Someone put itching powder in my pants.'”

Dad Potter and the attempt at a race car bed that didn’t work out.

“What did I tell you about scaring the men in your painting out of the frame?”
—Hagrid’s Helper

Harry: “Albus, I respect the phase you’re going through, but painting your bedroom with black is just going one step too far.”

Harry: “Well, sometimes I wish you weren’t my son!”
Harry: “Okay, I’ll be honest – it’s actually all of the time.”

Harry: “I am frustrated with you right now, Albus. But instead of telling you that I wish you weren’t my son, I’m going to put aside my frustration SINCE I’M A GOOD PERSON.
John Tiffany and Jack Thorne: (from backstage) “Cut!”
—Jack (Hufflepuff)

Me explaining Squid Game to my friends.

Harry: (like E.T.) “Phone home.”

Harry: “You’ll be severely punished for breaking the rules like this.”
Albus: “Mum says you won House points every time you broke the rules.”
Harry: (under his breath) “Dammit, Ginny.”

“That’s it, son. We’re taking you to get that vein in your foot looked at.”
