\n* Following Sirius' death, Harry briefly considers that he may have come back as a ghost, and seeks out Nearly-Headless Nick to try and find out. Nick says he's been expecting Harry to approach him, as students who have experienced the death of a loved one often come to talk to him about it. Unfortunately, Nick is only a ghost and ultimately knows nothing more about death than he did when he was alive, knowing only that Sirius did not choose to become a ghost and instead passed on. While Harry's brief hope that he might see a form of Sirius again being quickly crushed is sad, the real sorrow comes from the great melancholy in Nick's lamentation of the feeble imitation of life he chose because he was afraid of death, and how he sometimes wishes he had chosen to move on. It's a poignant insight into a normally comedic side character, and the lonely nature of the ghosts in general.

-->'''Dumbledore''': Harry... Harry. It's not the ways that you are alike that matter. It is the ways you are not.

-->'''Dumbledore''': Harry... Harry. It's not the ways that you are alike that matter. It is the ways you are not.not. * The scene I consider to be the most powerful was when the trio first try to recruit students to train against the dark arts. Everyone there still doesn't believe Harry about Voldemort's return, so Hermoine and Ron start [[RememberWhenYouBlewUpTheSun gloating about Harry's accomplishments]], but Harry points out that [[DontDoThisCoolThing he did all those things when he was about to die, and that he doesn't want anyone going through that]]. His candor about danger is what convinces everyone he's telling the truth.

* Harry's reaction to Percy's letter, where he advises Ron to stop being friends with him. Even though, by Harry's own admission, he's never liked Percy much, he stilllikely saw him as family, and he feels absolutely betrayed.

*** [[spoiler: And the worst part was that DanielRadcliffe wasn't miming that scream. The reason you don't hear any audio at that moment was because they ''cut it'' during post-production. Apparently, it was ''too'' agonizing.]]

* ** Also, with some FridgeBrilliance: throughout the books (and especially in book 7), we see that Ron feels inadequate and unloved compared to his siblings and friends. But his is the first body that we see Molly's personal [[YourWorstNightmare boggart]] of seeing her sons (and Harry) killed.

Accidentally added an example that was already on the page. I need to stop troping so late at night.
* After the AwfulTruth is finally revealed and all is said and done in Dumbledore's office, the headmaster then gives the reason he didn't make Harry a prefect. -->"I rather thought...you had enough responsibility to be going on with."

** In other words, Luna watched her mother die. Said death was also implied to not have been pretty. At all.

** At this point in the series, who's to say she even ''wants'' to tell them anything? No doubt her parents have asked her how things were and she can't explain, among other things, that there's an uber-powerful dark wizard on the loose that wants her best friend dead.

Added DiffLines:
** One can only imagine that Harry, who felt the same way about Hogwarts and, for a few short moments the previous summer, was actually expelled from the place, actually sympathized with Trelawney for once.
