Dinner with Aunt Marge | Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban


Can I tempt you Marge? Just a small one. Excellent nosh, Petunia. A bit more. Usually just a fry-up for me, what with 12 dogs. A bit more. That’s it, boy. You want to try a little drop of brandy?
A little drop of brandy-brandy windy-wandy for Rippy-pippy-pooh? What are you smirking at? Where did you
send the boy Vernon? St. Brutus’. It’s a fine institution for hopeless cases. Do they use a cane at St. Brutus’, boy? Oh, yeah. Yeah, I’ve been beaten loads of times. Excellent. I won’t have these namby-pamby wishy-washy nonsense about not beating
people who deserve it. You mustn’t blame yourself about how this one turned out, Vernon. It’s all to do with blood. Bad blood will out. What is it the boy’s father did, Petunia? Nothing. He didn’t work, he was unemployed. And a drunk too, no doubt. That’s a lie. What did you say? My dad wasn’t a drunk. Don’t worry, don’t fuss Petunia. I have a very firm grip. I think it’s time you went to bed. Quiet Vernon. You, clean it up.

  1. I have two questions, so I hope someone responds.

    One, In the book, it says, "At Dudley’s fifth birthday party, Aunt Marge had whacked Harry around the shins with her
    walking stick to stop him from beating Dudley at musical statues." Does that imply she really struck and hurt Harry? Like, not just little hits, but severe blows. He was only FOUR then! She couldn't have possibly used strong force to make a LITTLE BOY suffer horrible pain.

    And two, suppose Harry got so angry and hurt by Marge's comments and abuse, he grabbed a kitchen knife and stabbed himself. Would THIS be the thing to raise her concerns and make her care for Harry? She may hate him, but don't tell me she would want him to commit suicide. Same thing for the Dursleys. Would they care?

  2. 0:41 Harry doesn't attend St. Brutus'. He's a student at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

  3. We know that Harry could be a legend, but the reason the Dursleys are cruel to him is because Petunia hates her sister, Lily (Harry's mom).
