6.“The elf’s eyes found him, and his lips trembled with the effort to form words. “Harry…Potter…”
7.“This, sir?” said Dobby, plucking at the pillowcase. “‘Tis a mark of the house-elf’s enslavement, sir.”
8.“Master has given a sock.”
9.“Dobby likes Professor Dumbledore very much, sir, and is proud to keep his secrets and our silence for him.”

16.“Dobby has no master. Dobby is a free elf, and Dobby has come to save Harry Potter and his friends!”
17.“Harry Potter,” he squeaked, in the tiniest quiver of a voice, “Dobby has come to rescue you.”
18.“Dobby is sorry, sir!” squeaked Dobby anxiously, jumping backwards with his long fingers over his mouth. “Dobby is only wanting to wish Harry Potter ‘Merry Christmas’ and bring him a present, sir! Harry Potter did say Dobby could come and see him sometimes, sir!”
19.”Dobby now handed Harry a small package, which turned out to be – socks. “Dobby is making them himself, sir!” the elf said happily. “He is buying the wool out of his wages, sir!”
20.“Harry Potter! Such an honor, it is.”
21.“Friends who don’t even write to Harry Potter?”
22.”Harry Potter should have listened to Dobby. Harry Potter should have go back home when he missed the train.”

26.“Harry Potter must go home! Dobby thought that his bludger was enough to make Harry Potter see!”
27.“No! Not to kill you, sir. Never kill you.”
28.“He squeaked, his eyes brimming with tears again, bowing deeply to Ron. “Dobby knew sir must be a great wizard, for he is Harry Potter’s greatest friend, but Dobby did not know that he was also as generous of spirit, as noble, as selfless.”
29.“Harry Potter must not go back to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry this year… There is a plot.”
