Best Ron Moment
I have a lot of favorite Ron moments, like the spider-butterfly dialogue in the second movie, or even when he finally said his thoughts about Harry and Hermione in the eighth movie. But for me, the best Ron moment is from Harry Potter and the Order of Phoenix.
From Chapter 11: The Sorting Hat's New Song
"What's going on?"
Ron had appeared in the doorway. His wide eyes traveled from Harry, who was kneeling on his bed with his wand pointing at Seamus, to Seamus, who was standing there with his fists raised.
"He's having a go at my mother!" Seamus yelled.
"What?" said Ron. "Harry wouldn't do that - we met your mother, we liked her...."
"That's before she started believing every word the stinking Daily Prophet writes about me!" said Harry at the top of his voice.
"Oh," said Ron, comprehension dawning across his freckled face. "Oh... right."
"You know what?" said Seamus heatedly, casting Harry a venomous look. "He's right, I don't want to have to share a dormitory with him anymore, he's a madman."
"That's out of order, Seamus," said Ron, whose ears were starting to glow red, always a danger sign.
"Out of order, am I?" shouted Seamus, who in contrast with Ron was turning paler. "You believe all the rubbish he's come out with about You-Know-Who, do you, you recking he's telling the truth?"
"Yeah, I do!" said Ron angrily.
"Then you're mad too," said Seamus in disgust.
"Yeah? Well unfortunately for you, pal, I'm also a prefect!" said Ron, jabbing himself in the chest with a finger. "So unless you want detention, watch your mouth!"
"Anyone else's parents got a problem with Harry?" he said aggressively.
This scene was not justified in the movie, but that's what the book is for, right? What I adore most about this scene is Ron's loyalty to Harry, that even though a lot of people thinks that Harry's just lying, Ron will always be there for him. I also like the hint of the arrogance in there because it seems that he takes pride in being able to protect Harry and that's really respectable, well for me anyways.
