Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
Movie Quote Quiz

Albus Dumbledore: Take my arm. That was fun. Most people vomit their first time.

Dumbledore: Oh, to be young, and to feel love's keen sting.

Hermione: Excuse me, I have to go and vomit.

Ron: [Talking about Lavender] All she wants to do is snog me. My lips are getting chapped. Look!
Harry: I'll take your word for it.

Hagrid: Seriously misunderstood creatures, spiders are. It's the eyes I reckon. They unnerve some folk.
Harry: Not to mention the pincers.

Arthur Weasley: Times like these, dark times, they do funny things to people. They can tear them apart.

Harry Potter: Professor, you knew Voldemort. You were his teacher. What was he like?
Horace Slughorn: Dumbledore put you up to this, didn't he?

Albus Dumbledore: Once again, I must ask too much of you Harry.

Harry Potter: Did you know, sir? Then?
Albus Dumbledore: Did I know that I just met the most dangerous dark wizard of all time? No.

Albus Dumbledore: You must be wondering why I brought you here.
Harry Potter: Actually sir, after all these years I just sort of go with it.

Continuity mistake: In Potions class, when Hermione stands before the cauldron explaining what she is smelling in her closeup, we see Neville behind her with the broad space to his right (viewer's left), just as she says, "Spearmint toothpaste". In the instant cut to the wideshot, Harry is now shoulder to shoulder with Neville, too fast for him to suddenly be standing that close to Neville. (00:34:35)

More trivia for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

Question: When Harry sees into the past of Dumbledore's meeting with young Tom Riddle, Tom admits that he hurts people if they are mean to him. Since Tom openly admits this with obviously no guilt or remorse, why would Dumbledore take him to Hogwarts to learn magic instead of leaving him at the orphanage?

Answer: Leaving an untrained young wizard, who obviously has some behavioral issues and has no idea he is magical, alone in the Muggle world would be extremely dangerous. Dumbledore does not yet know that Riddle will become evil, but like any teacher, he wants to give a troubled youth an opportunity to find a new path in life.
