23. He's never been Dumbledore, unless it was on stage.

Richard Harris, Michael Gambon, and Jude Law have been all the Dumbledores I know of.

26. There was a public wedding of Gandalf and Dumbledore right across the street fro, or next door to,

I forget which, the Westboro Baptist Church.

Neither McKellan not Gambon was present , but the costumes and makeup were used as in the films.'

Naturally, that associated Gandalf and Dumbeldore in people's minds and I can't find the heart to complain about it.

28. That must have been marvelous to witness!

BTW, I wasn't complaining, I just didn't want people confusing the actors or characters.

32. I only saw a couple of pictures, but

from what I can gather from those and from the accounts, it was one for the ages.

29. I'd have confused them if I wasn't

such a huge fan of both characters, having seen all of the HP films countless times, and pretty much the same for the LOTR movies and The Hobbit. Ian McKellan was the perfect pick for Magneto.

2. A gentle and perfect knight

A knight is sworn to valor
His heart knows only virtue
His blade defends the helpless
His might upholds the weak
His word speaks only truth
His wrath undoes the wicked.

From Dragonheart The Old Code

18. You're welcome

One of my favorites, too

"M'lord, the peasants are revolting!"

"Aye, they're always revolting. Now they're rebelling."

Sound familiar?

Mr. Tweedy: "The Chickens are revolting!"

Mrs. Tweedy: "Finally, something we can agree on."
