[[folder:From the book]]
* Harry and Ron find out some important information and try to run up the stairs to the girl's dorm to tell Hermione. But apparently Hogwarts has spells against male students in the female dorms, so the stairs collapse into a slide the instant they set foot. [[FunnyBackgroundEvent Hermione and the rest of the female students unconcernedly slide down to greet them for the rest of the scene like it's a playground]]. "Who tried to climb up the stairs?"
** FridgeBrilliance kicks in when you realize the teachers did this to make sure students didn't get up to any "funny business", which begs the question [[FailedASpotCheck if they considered gay or lesbian students in that equation]]. Or if interested girls could just [[TakeAThirdOption walk up to the boys' dorms]] (as they canonically are capable of).
** And what a way to confirm you're transgender!
* Uncle Vernon continuously mispronouncing the names of various things from the wizarding world and completely misunderstanding the point of it all. Highlights include "Dementoids" and "Lord Voldything" and "the Dementors were in town to arrest Harry, and he was on the run from the law."
* The HappyDance that ensues after Harry's acquittal.
** Eventually, Molly's had enough.
--> [[BigShutUp SHUT UP!]]
* [=McGonagall=] reading Umbridge's note.
--> '''[=McGonagall=]''': Is it true that you shouted at Professor Umbridge?\\
'''Harry''': Yes.\\
'''[=McGonagall=]''': You called her a liar?\\
'''Harry''': Yes.\\
'''[=McGonagall=]''': You told her He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named is back?\\
'''Harry''': Yes.\\
'''[=McGonagall=]''': Have a biscuit, Potter.[[note]]British English "biscuit" = American English "cookie"[[/note]]
* Anything Peeves does: "The bell rang just as Peeves swooped down on Katie and emptied an entire bottle of ink over her head."
* And the entirety of the "prank war": Doubles as a CrowningMomentOfAwesome for the twins.
* The description of how, with the school more or less in open rebellion against Umbridge's regime, Filch is completely out of his depth trying to stem the tide of trouble making, and the Inquisitorial Squad have merely painted targets on their back when the rest of Hogwarts has declared open season on Umbridge and her cronies.
-->''"Filch prowled the corridors with a horsewhip ready in his hands, desperate to catch miscreants, but the problem now was there were so many of them he never knew which way to turn. The Inquisitorial Sqaud was trying to help him, but odd things kept happening to its members. Warrington of the Slytherin Quidditch team reported to the hospital wing with a horrible skin complaint that made him look as though he'd been coated in cornflakes; Pansy Parkinson, to Hermione's delight, missed all her lessons the following day as she had sprouted antlers"''.
** The conclusion, when Peeves chased Umbridge off by hitting her with a walking stick and a sock filled with chalk. Professor [=McGonagall=]'s reaction? "I would chase after her myself, but Peeves borrowed my stick." Made funnier when listening to the book on tape, where the reader's [=McGonagall=] voice seems to be hinting that Peeves didn't "steal" the stick so much as "asked politely for it and detailed the exact reason why he needed it." Made better by the [[DoWrongRight "it unscrews the other way"]] accident (listed below, being a CrowningMomentOfFunny itself).
** Pretty much any time [=McGonagall=] and Umbridge interacted in ''Order of the Phoenix'' was this, often with an added CrowningMomentOfAwesome for [=McGonagall=].
* This:
-->'''Molly:''' I don't believe it! Oh, Ron, how wonderful! A prefect! That's everyone in the family!
-->'''George:''' What are Fred and I, next-door neighbors?
** And Alastor "Mad-Eye" Moody has his own perspective about Ron's said promotion:
-->'''Mad-Eye''': "Authority figures always attract trouble, but I suppose Dumbledore thinks you can withstand most major jinxes or he wouldn't have appointed you…"
* Molly's reaction to Arthur's stitches: "WHAT DO YOU MEAN, ''THAT'S THE GENERAL IDEA''?!"
* After Dudley is attacked by a dementor at the beginning:
--> '''Vernon''': Fought 'em off, did you, son? Gave 'em the old one-two, did you?\\
'''Harry''': You can't give a dementor the old one-two!
** Harry's not recorded as [[FacePalm facepalming]] during that line, but it's not hard at all to imagine it.
** When talking about the dementor attack, Vernon demands to know what the hell they are. Petunia promptly answers "They guard the wizard prison, Azkaban" and then ''[[ExplainExplainOhCrap slaps her hands over her mouth]] [[FelonyMisdemeanor in horror]]''.
* Umbridge's evaluations of the teachers could be both funny and painful. Snape's was particularly memorable:
--> '''Umbridge''': You applied first for the Defense against the Dark Arts post, I believe.\\
'''Snape''': Yes.\\
'''Umbridge''': But you were unsuccessful?\\
'''Snape''': ''(classic deadpan)'' Obviously.
** Then there's Ron's reaction to hearing the evaluations are going to take place. Everyone else is frightened for their favorite teachers, but Ron...
---> '''Ron''': I cannot ''wait'' to see [=McGonagall=] evaluated! Umbridge will never know what hit her!
** When [=McGonagall's=] evaluation does come around:
--->'''Umbridge''': I was just wondering, Minerva, if you received my notice of the time and date of your inspec-\\
'''[=McGonagall=]''': Obviously I received it, otherwise I would be asking what you think you're doing in my classroom.\\
''[Later, when she tries to correct [=McGonagall=] on something]''\\
'''[=McGonagall=]''': Professor Umbridge, how do you expect to gain any insight into my teaching techniques if you continue to interrupt me? You see, I do not generally allow other people to speak when I am speaking. ''[[[ShuttingUpNow Umbridge remains silent during the remainder of the lecture]]]''
* Most of the Advance Guard goofing off in the Dursley's kitchen. Kingsley and Sturgis Podmore are completely baffled by a microwave, and Hestia Jones is apparently laughing at a potato peeler. Lupin leaves a note for the Dursleys.
-->'''Lupin''': Harry, I’ve left a letter telling your aunt and uncle not to worry- \\
'''Harry''': They won’t.\\
'''Lupin''': - that you’re safe -\\
'''Harry''': That’ll just depress them.\\
'''Lupin''': - and you’ll see them next summer.\\
'''Harry''': Do I have to?
* This, too:
--> '''Mad-Eye''': Don' put your wand there, boy! What if it ignited? Better wizards than you have lost buttocks, you know!\\
'''Tonks''': Who do you know who's lost a buttock?
** Note that Mad-Eye [[NoodleIncident never responds, and in fact tries to get off the subject as quickly as possible.]] Then as he complains that no one bothers with elementary wand safety anymore, Tonks, standing behind him, rolls her eyes.
-->'''Mad-Eye''': (irritably) And I saw that!
** After she helps him pack his things, Tonks asks if he's ready to go.
-->'''Tonks''': Wand still in your jeans? Both buttocks still on? Okay, let's go.
* [[CuteClumsyGirl Tonks]] in general is a great source of funny moments.
* When they sneak in to the Ministry of Magic to save Sirius, they all get name tags saying "Rescue Mission". It gets even better as it's ambiguous whether or not they put them on, so if you want you can picture them wearing ''name tags'' throughout the ensuing battle.
** You ''know'' Luna put hers on.
* Pretty much everything that involves Phineas Nigellus Black is either this or a CrowningMomentOfAwesome.
* Dobby decorates the entire Room of Requirement with Christmas baubles, all emblazoned with pictures of Harry's face and the message "HAVE A VERY HARRY CHRISTMAS!"
** This works well for both sides of the pond as either a corruption of "Happy Christmas" (Preferred Commonwealth greeting) or "Merry Christmas" (Preferred American greeting).
* Two of Harry's particularly hilarious dreams:
** He dreams Cho is angry at him for luring her to the DA under false pretenses by promising her 150 Chocolate Frog Cards: "Cedric gave me loads of Chocolate Frog Cards, look!" Then she becomes Hermione who says he did promise Cho and suggests he should give her his Firebolt — but Umbridge has it, and he just came to the DA to put up Christmas ornaments shaped like Dobby's head… [[spoiler: [[MoodWhiplash But it quickly changes to]] [[NightmareFuel a vision of Nagini wounding Arthur.]] ]]
** The second dream involves him watching Neville and Professor Sprout waltzing in the Room of Requirement while [=McGonagall=] plays the bagpipes. This is ''not'' out of character for [=McGonagall=] either, as she is Scottish and, according to Pottermore, made her father's bagpipes play on their own as a baby!
* A metaphor where Luna is described as staring at Ron "as if he were a mildly interesting television program.''
* Harry getting in a good InsultBackfire in the buildup to the first Quidditch match of the season:
-->''"Harry had, of course, endured their snide comments for over four years, so whispers of "Hey Potty, I hear Warrington's sworn to knock you off your broom on Saturday", far from chilling his blood, made him laugh. "Warrington's aim's so pathetic I'd be more worried if he was aiming for the person next to me" he retorted, which made Ron and Hermione laugh and wiped the smirk off Pansy Parkinson's face.
* When Ron is freaking out before his first Quidditch match: "Ron was now staring into the dregs of milk at the bottom of his empty cereal bowl as though seriously considering attempting to drown himself in them." and "Harry and Ron pulled on their robes (Ron attempted to do his up back-to-front for several minutes before Alicia took pity on him and went to help)."
* Also the scene where [[spoiler: Hermoine kisses Ron on the cheek]] and the poor guy just [[PostKissCatatonia zones out]] for several minutes. Also doubles as a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming.
* The entire Stubby Boardman Quibbler article. Actually, just the Quibbler in general.
* [[NotSoAboveItAll McGonagall]] to [[{{Jerkass}} Peeves]]: "[[FallingChandelierOfDoom It]] [[DoWrongRight unscrews the other way."]]
* After Fred and George's escape, Ron, Hermione, and Harry are all talking about it, and Ron is sure his mother is going to blame him for allowing it. Then Harry reveals that he was the one who gave them the money to start their joke shop, and we get this:
--> '''Ron:''' "But this is excellent! It's all ''your'' fault! Can I tell mum?"
* Ron's comment upon dropping Divination (after one of his exams, he had told the examiner in detail about the ugly man with a wart on his nose in his crystal ball, only to look up and realize he had been describing his examiner's reflection):
--> '''Ron''': "And from now on I don't care if my tea-leaves spell 'Die, Ron, die!'[[note]]This is, of course, German for "The, Ron, the."[[/note]] I'm chucking them in the bin where they belong."
** As well as Ron's comment about "Jupiter [getting] too friendly with Uranus" or something of the like. Ron says [[UranusIsShowing "Uranus"]] ''three times'' between [=GoF=] and [=OoTP=], and it's lampshaded twice - in other words, there's no way Ron's choice of words here was an accident.
** Harry's examination is pretty good too, including mixing up the lines on his (very old) examiner's palm and telling her she should have died the previous Tuesday.
*** What if that [[TakeThat wasn't an accident]]? Haven't Ron and Harry spent the last three years fumbling through their Divination class by essentially making stuff up off the top of their heads as they went along? Do ''either'' of them really care to carry that class on to N.E.W.T. level?
* Near the beginning we have Mrs. Figg, Harry's batty old Squib neighbor, [[PunctuatedPounding battering]] [[DirtyCoward Mundungus Fletcher]] with a bag full of canned cat food.
* Dumbledore's comment to Umbridge upon hiring Firenze to replace Trelawney: "[[TakeThat This is Firenze. I think you'll find him acceptable]]." (or words to that extent). Note that Umbridge ''[[FantasticRacism hates]]'' [[FantasticRacism centaurs (and, for that matter, all other "half-breeds") like Firenze.]]
** And once [[LaserGuidedKarma she suffers a beating by centaurs]], Ron reveals she will wake up from catatonia in panic if a clopping-like sound is heard...
* The aftermath of Harry's angsty tirade towards Ron and Hermione. He goes on and on about how no one ''understands'' him, only for Fred, George, and Ginny to pop into the room and casually and snarkily greet him with "Oh hey, Harry! Thought we heard you!"
* Fred and George Apparating into Harry and Ron's bedroom to talk about the weapon Voldemort wants to steal, leading to this exchange:
--> '''Ron:''' You two just Apparated [[AmusingInjuries on my knees!]]\\
'''Twins:''' Yeah, well it's harder to do in the dark.
* The Careers advice scene is both funny and [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome awesome]].
-->''"Are you sure you don't want a cough drop, Dolores?"''
** And the argument over Harry's classroom performance:
--> '''[=McGonagall=]:''' He has achieved high marks in all his Defense Against the Dark Arts tests--\\
'''Umbridge:''' I'm terribly sorry to have to contradict you, Minerva, but as you will see from my note, Harry has been achieving very poor results in his classes with me--\\
'''[=McGonagall=]:''' I should have made my meaning plainer. [[TakeThatScrappy He has achieved high marks in all Defense Against the Dark Arts tests set by a competent teacher.]]
** Just to take this to its logical conclusion, the list of "competent teachers" includes [[Literature/PrisonerOfAzkaban A werewolf]], [[Literature/HarryPotterAndThePhilosophersStone Not one]] [[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheGobletOfFire but TWO]] separate [[TheMole Moles]] for Voldemort, and [[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheChamberOfSecrets Gilderoy Lockhart]]. All of which, [=McGonagall=] insinuates, are better for the job than her.
* After Umbridge used up Snape's Veritaserum (which actually turned out to be fake) and demands he make more to interrogate Harry ''again'', Snape tells her it will take a month unless he wishes to poison Harry. Umbridge throws a tantrum, and puts Snape on probation on the spot.
** Snape gives no fucks about this. Not one.
** In this scene, he is talking to Umbridge the same way he talks to [[ButtMonkey Neville]]. You can feel him suppressing the urge to dock points from her.
** And before departing, he also (being the first one in the room to ''finally'' notice it) takes note of the [[FunnyBackgroundEvent sight of Crabbe all but asphyxiating Neville in a stranglehold]] and tells Crabbe to loosen his grip because ''"If Longbottom suffocates, it means a tedious amount of paperwork and I do have to mention it on your reference if ever you apply for a job"''. From his tone, you can tell he considers the potential of extensive red tape for himself the greater concern. At the same time, he speaks of Crabbe being employed as a remote possibility rather than an inevitability, so it's clear his expectations for the kid aren't very high. [[spoiler: This may be HarsherInHindsight because Crabbe doesn't survive to graduate Hogwarts.]]
* [[TyrantTakesTheHelm Umbridge's takeover of Hogwarts]] results in full on mutiny, and the teachers just ''let'' Umbridge struggle!
-->'''Flitwick:''' I could have done it myself, of course, but I wasn't sure I had the ''authority'' anymore.
** [=McGonagall=] just watches the rockets disrupt class, gives no fucks at all, and casually asks a student to fetch Umbridge.
* Fudge and Umbridge's GenreBlindness is hilarious when they think they can get Dumbledore out of the way, especially Dumbledore's response:
--> '''Fudge:''' I see no snag, Dumbledore!\\
'''Dumbledore:''' Well, I do. You all seem to be laboring under the delusion that I will . . . what was the phrase? "Come quietly?"\\
'''Fudge:''' So you plan to take on me, two Aurors, and the Senior Undersecretary unassisted?\\
'''Dumbledore:''' Merlin's beard, no. Not unless you are foolish enough to make me.
** Then right after, when [[CrowningMomentofAwesome Dumbledore has taken on all four of them and disappeared, making them all look foolish]]
-->'''Fudge:''' [[UnderestimatingBadassery It appears this is the end of your friend, Dumbledore]].\\
'''[=McGonagall=]:''' You think so?
** As Harry leaves the office:
--> '''Phineas Black:''' You know, Minister, I disagree with Dumbledore on many counts... but you cannot deny he's got style.
* Dumbledore's office [[TakeThatScrappy sealing itself against Umbridge]].
* The description of Filch, his teeth gnashing, "punting" students across the swamp that Fred and George left behind in a corridor. Of course Jo's talking about the boat, but to those not familiar with that specific term, it can paint...[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Punt_kick a rather different picture]]. Really, it's hilarious either way if you take into account the sheer absurdity of a swamp so big it can only be crossed by boat ''in the middle of a castle hallway''.
* The scene in the Hogwarts Express when Ron was planning on what to do to punish Crabbe or Goyle.
--> '''Ron:''' I'll make Goyle do lines, it'll kill him, he hates writing. (He lowered his voice to Goyle's low grunt and, screwing up his face in a look of pained concentration, mimed writing in midair) I ... must ... not ... look ... like ... a ... baboon's ... backside.
** The fact that Luna ''breaks down into a massive fit of the giggles and is near enough wetting herself at this!''
*** Also, Ron's nonplussed response to Luna's overreaction.
* Luna becomes "rather bored by the proceedings" while Umbridge is threatening to expel her and her friends.
* Ginny imitating Umbridge's "Hem hem" cough...accurately. In fact, it sounded so realistic that people thought she was there with them!
* It's a pretty dark scene overall, but the Marauders in the Snape's Worst Memory chapter are genuinely funny at least among each other.
--> '''Sirius:''' So what did you think of the fifth question, Moony?\\
'''Remus:''' Excellent one. Give us five signs that identify the werewolf?\\
'''James:''' ''(in a mocking tone)'' Do you think you missed any?\\
'''Remus:''' Let's see, one, he's sitting on my chair, two, he's wearing my clothes and three, his name is Remus Lupin.\\
''(James and Sirius laugh)''\\
'''Peter:''' I'm not sure I got all of it.\\
'''James:''' Wormtail, how thick can you get? You run around with a werewolf once a month.
** The whole RefugeInAudacity of [[{{PubliclyDiscussingTheSecret}} discussing this in broad daylight]] is funny in itself.
* For Severus, it's unending horror, but the BlackComedy of [[spoiler: James torturing Snape as an excuse to hit on Lily is incredibly funny while being DudeNotFunny at the same time]]. Especially James' petulant reply when Lily blows him off.
--> '''James:''' ''(in a would-be Macho tone)'' What's with her?\\
'''Sirius:''' ''(like talking to a small child)'' Reading between the lines, mate, I'd say she thinks you are a tad conceited.
* The description of Ron and Hermione's prefect duties in December (interspersed with Ron's complaints about them):
--> "They were called upon to supervise the decoration of the castle ('You try putting up tinsel when Peeves has got the other end and is trying to strangle you with it,' said Ron), to watch over first- and second-years spending their break-times inside because of the bitter cold ('And they're cheeky little snot-rags, you know, we definitely weren't that rude when we were in first year,' said Ron) and to patrol the corridors in shifts with Argus Filch, who suspected that the holiday spirit might show itself in an outbreak of wizard duels ('He's got dung for brains, that one,' said Ron furiously)."
* In an otherwise TearJerker scene, Dumbledore's passive non-reaction to Harry's TantrumThrowing: "By all means continue destroying my possessions. I daresay I have too many."
* Hermione's Christmas presents for Harry and Ron: homework planners that talk after something is written in them. It's never explained why she thought they'd appreciate her gift, but she might've just wanted the planners to remind them of schoolwork so she wouldn't have to.
--> "'Don't leave it till later, you big second-rater!' chided the book as Harry scribbled down Umbridge's homework. Hermione beamed at it. 'I think I'll go to bed,' said Harry, stuffing the homework planner back into his bag and making a mental note to drop it in the fire the first opportunity he got."
* Ron and Hermione are the new Prefects, so a run in with the Twins was inevitable. When Hermione confronts them about their latest scheme, they laugh at her threats of punishment, until she invokes the one thing that can scare them into backing down:
-->'''Hermione''': If you don't stop, I'm going to—\\
'''Fred''': Put us in detention?\\
'''George''': Make us write lines?\\
'''Hermione''': No, but I will write to your ''mother''.\\
'''Fred''': [[AnythingButThat You wouldn't...]]
* Fred's reaction to learning that Ron got a "P" (Poor) grade on his Potions homework.
-->'''Fred''': Nothing wrong with a good healthy 'P'.
* Also, the continuing discussion of the grades, ending with George revealing that the final grade is T for Troll, which Hermione didn't know about. Harry's not even sure if George is just joking (the next book reveals that he ''isn't'') and then he imagines trying to conceal from Hermione that he got Ts on all his exams.
** George also mentions that he feels he and Fred should have gotten E's (Exceeds Expectations) on every exam just for the fact they showed up (which admittedly ''would'' have exceeded most people's expectations of them).
* Cornelius Fudge referring to Voldemort as "Lord- Thingy" in his press statement admitting that the Dark Lord has returned at the end.
* The rather sharp put-down Mad-Eye Moody directs at Vernon during the confrontation between the Dursleys and the Order at the end of the book:
-->'''Vernon:''' I am not aware that it is any of your business what goes on in my house-
-->'''Mad-Eye:''' I expect [[ExactWords what you're not aware of]] would fill several books, Dursley.
** Followed by this gloriously satisfying exchange:
-->'''Vernon:''' [[IsThatAThreat Are you threatening me, sir?]]
-->'''Mad-Eye:''' [[BluntYes Yes, I am.]]
-->'''Vernon:''' [[TemptingFate And do I look like the kind of man who can be intimidated?]]
-->'''Mad-Eye:''' Well... ''<pushes back his bowler hat to stare at Vernon with his creepy Mad Eye, causing Vernon to leap back in shock and crash into a luggage trolley>'' Yes, I'd have to say you do, Dursley.
* The teachers' reactions to Harry's interview. As they are, by yet another educational degree, forbidden to talk with the students about anything which is not on the topic of their subject, they find ways around it. Flitwick gives him sweets for apparently nothing, Sprout gives points to Gryffindor to Harry for handing her a watering can, and Trelawney of all people (who loves to foresee his early (and probably painful) death), suddenly changes her mind and tells Harry that he will have 7 children, become Minister of Magic and will live into old age, much to Umbridge's dismay who is present in all of Trelawney's classes.
* At the meeting in the Hog's Head Inn, Zacharias Smith constantly grumbles about Harry's past achievements. Fred and George shut him up by producing an item from Zonko's...
-->'''George:''' Would you like us to clean out your ears for you?
-->'''Fred:''' Or any part of your body, really, we're not fussy where we stick this.
* Hermione is refusing to help Harry and Ron with their homework in the evening because they spent the day having fun flying when they could have been doing it. During this, Ron receives a very nasty letter from Percy basically encouraging him to stop hanging around Harry because he's supposedly mentally unstable. Afterwards, Hermione finally agrees to look it over and correct any mistakes.
-->'''Ron''': Are you serious? Ah, Hermione, you're a life-saver, what can I--?
-->'''Hermione''': What you can say is, "We promise we'll never leave our homework this late again."
** And Hermione gets another good line in as Ron prepares to make a promise.
--> '''Ron:''' If I'm ever rude to you again--
--> '''Hermione:''' I'll know you're [[SlapSlapKiss back to normal]].
* Harry is steamed at being sent see Professor [=McGonagall=] in her office by Umbridge and has the misfortune to encounter Peeves.
-->'''Peeves''': Ooh, crackpot's feeling cranky! What is it this time, my fine Potty friend? Hearing voices? Seeing visions? Speaking in... Tongues? ''Oh, most think he's barking, the potty wee lad, but some are more kindly and think he's just sad, but Peevsy knows better and says that he's mad!''
* Poor Hannah Abbott has such a stressful time going into exams. It's a RunningGag how stressed she is, and it pays off in the news of the Transfiguration exam - where Hannah apparently panics and multiplies her ferret into a flock of flamingos. The exam is reportedly shut down for several minutes while the teachers try to round the birds up.
* The group is explaining to Harry how everyone is trying to discredit Dumbledore and make them think he's senile by doing stuff like demoting him from being Chief Warlock on the Wizengamot and possibly taking away his Order of Merlin, First Class.
-->'''Bill''': But Dumbledore says he doesn't care what they do as long as they don’t take him off the Chocolate Frog cards.
* When Harry is asked to cast a Patronus by his examiners, what thought makes him happy enough to do so? Umbridge getting sacked.

[[folder:From the film]]
* When Umbridge is interrogating Snape. After she leaves, he [[RunningGag smacks Ron upside the head with a notebook]] while looking in her direction. Plus, Creator/AlanRickman's delivery of "Obviously" is utterly hysterical.
** Ron's reaction is almost none. Compared to Umbridge, Snape is a SitcomArchnemesis to him.
* At one point, we see Umbridge evaluating Flitwick's music class. She ends up ''measuring him''. The "Are you kidding me?" look on his face is priceless.
*** And after the twins' escape it gets a CallBack; Flitwick does a victory FistPump, then ''looks around to see if [[OutOfCharacterMoment anybody saw him doing it.]]''
* Crookshanks eating the Extendable Ear.
** And Fred and George's reaction - "Bloody cat!"
* When the trio meet Grawp, he picks up Hermione and she tries to order him to put her down. Emma Watson's tone of sheer terror pretending to be anger is priceless. Even more hilarious when it works and Grawp gives her a present of a set of bicycle handlebars.
* When Umbridge is being carried off by centaurs we hear her "Let me gooooooooooooooooooooooooo!" echo off into the distance and it's hysterical.
** This [[CallBack Call Back]] (it becomes something of a {{running gag}} when it is reused in the seventh movie):
--> '''Umbridge:''' Potter, do something! Tell them I mean no harm!\\
'''Harry:''' I'm sorry, Professor. But [[IronicEcho I must not tell lies.]]
* It's a rather sad scene when Umbridge is firing Trelawney from Hogwarts, but there's this line when [=McGonagall=] comes out to comfort her:
-->'''Umbridge''': Something you'd like to say, Minerva?\\
'''[=McGonagall=]''': (''*with a DeathGlare*'') Oh, there are several things I would ''like'' to say!
** To make this funnier, [=McGonagall=] is ''Scottish'' so just ''imagine'' the swear words she knows -- especially as she grew up in the 1930s and 40s when language was a lot less restrained and using swear words in public was less of a taboo than it was in the 90s.
* A lot of the Dumbledore's Army training scenes. Neville trying to cast a spell and causing the wand to fly backwards, Cho dropping Nigel, Fred and George giving Filch some really awful boils/acne. Bonus points for the scene where Filch, plus boils, is in Umbridge's office. What makes her even more pissed off is when one of Filch's boils pops in her face. And of course, the fact that Filch was [[TooDumbToLive stupid enough]] to eat from a box of chocolates left for him by a "Secret admirer."
** At one point Luna is happily skipping towards the Room of Requirement, all the while being watched by Filch and the Inquisitorial Squad (Malfoy and some other Slytherins). They then try running into the Room of Requirement but just crash land into a broom cupboard. Luna's skipping alone is a moment in and of itself.
* Hermione stupefying Ron after he tells her he will go "easy on her." Also, Fred and George betting on who will win.
** And Ron's embarrassed reaction for that matter:
--> '''Ron''': I let her do that. It's good manners.
* Luna's EstablishingCharacterMoment. Harry's freaking out over seeing the Thestrals when no one else can then hears "You're not going mad". He looks at one of the carriages to see Luna, reading "The Quibbler" ''upside down'' and says "I can see them too. You're just as sane as ''I'' am!" It's short, sweet, to the point and ''perfectly'' illustrates [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} her character]].
* At the beginning of the movie, Harry asks Dudley if he beat up another 10-year-old, and he tries to justify it by saying "This one deserved it." What makes it funny is that Harry was very likely asking a rhetorical question.
* It's a blink-and-you'll miss it moment, but prior to embarking on their broom journey, Moody grumbles [[TheParanoiac "Don't break ranks if one of us is killed!"]] Tonks, clearly tired of his shit, gives a ''very'' noticeable [[SilentSnarker eyeroll]]. [[spoiler: This ''does'' become a bit HarsherInHindsight later, though, as Moody, Tonks, and other members of the Order come to escort Harry away from Privet Drive for the final time two books later, and Moody is the only person that doesn't survive.]]
* After Dumbledore makes his explosive escape from right under Fudge's nose, Kingsley Shacklebolt says what everyone is thinking.
--> '''Shacklebolt:''' Woah. You may not like it, Minister, but you can't deny, Dumbledore's got ''style''."
