Harry's best friend. Ron is the second youngest Weasley child and because of this, he struggles to define himself and stand out in his family, given that all of his older brothers are accomplished (even if, in the case of Fred and George, nobody takes their skill at manufacturing joke products seriously). This means that when Harry's name comes out of the Goblet of Fire, Ron is extremely jealous--Harry's fame and fortune make Ron feel even more inferior, and he feels as though Harry went behind his back to enter without giving Ron the chance to enter too. Though he ignores Harry until after the first task, Ron continues to stand up for Hermione, which earns him detention from Snape. In private, however, Ron and Hermione fight for most over the year over Hermione's organization S.P.E.W., which Ron thinks is ridiculous; he sees no real reason to free the house-elves if they don't want to be freed. After Ron reaffirms his friendship with Harry, he jumps wholeheartedly into trying to figure out who put Harry's name in the Goblet of Fire, though his critical thinking skills aren't as well-developed as Harry’s or Hermione's. Especially as jealousy begins to get the better of Ron when Viktor Krum takes Hermione to the Yule Ball, Ron insists that Hermione is "fraternizing with the enemy" and that the point of the Tournament is to win, not make friends. The Yule Ball is especially painful for Ron because of his family's financial situation, as Mrs. Weasley bought Ron secondhand dress robes that are moldy and have lace trim. Ron spends most of the school year pining for Fleur, the gorgeous Beauxbatons champion who has veela ancestry. He also acts as a window into the Wizarding world and explains to Harry about why giants aren't trusted by the Wizarding community. Ron respects Dumbledore's request to not ask Harry questions about the third task until Harry is ready to talk about it, and he finally puts aside his jealousy of Krum by asking Krum for his autograph at the end of the school year.

Chapter Nine Quotes

"I don't get it," said Ron, frowning. "I mean...it's still only a shape in the sky..."

"Ron, You-Know-Who and his followers sent the Dark Mark into the air whenever they killed," said Mr. Weasley. "The terror it inspired...you have no idea, you're too young. Just picture coming home and finding the Dark Mark hovering over your house, and knowing what you're about to find inside..." Mr. Weasley winced. "Everyone's worst fear...the very worst..."

Chapter Fourteen Quotes

"Now, according to the Ministry of Magic, I'm supposed to teach you countercurses and leave it at that. I'm not supposed to show you what illegal Dark curses look like until you're in the sixth year. You're not supposed to be old enough to deal with it till then. But Professor Dumbledore's got a higher opinion of your nerves, he reckons you can cope, and I say, the sooner you know what you're up against, the better."

Explanation and Analysis:

He heard Ron come up into the dormitory a short while later, but he did not speak to him. For a long time, Harry lay staring up at the dark canopy of his bed. The dormitory was completely silent, and, had he been less preoccupied, Harry would have realized that the absence of Neville's usual snores meant that he was not the only one lying awake.

Explanation and Analysis:
Chapter Fifteen Quotes

"It's all in Hogwarts: A History. Though, of course, that book's not entirely reliable. A Revised History of Hogwarts would be a more accurate title. Or A Highly Biased and Selective History of Hogwarts, Which Glosses Over the Nastier Aspects of the School."

"What are you on about?" said Ron, though Harry thought he knew what was coming.

"House-elves!" said Hermione, her eyes flashing. "Not once, in over a thousand pages, does Hogwarts: A History mention that we are all colluding in the oppression of a hundred slaves!"

"Oh Harry, isn't it obvious?" Hermione said despairingly. "He's jealous!"

"Jealous?" Harry said incredulously. "Jealous of what? He wants to make a prat of himself in front of the whole school, does he?"

"Look," said Hermione patiently, "it's always you who gets all the attention, you know it is. I know it's not your fault," she added quickly, seeing Harry open his mouth furiously. "I know you don't ask for it...but--well--Ron's got all those brothers to compete against at home, and you're his best friend, and you're really famous--he's always shunted to one side whenever people see you, and he puts up with it, and he never mentions it, but I suppose this is just one time too many..."

Chapter Twenty-Three Quotes

"He's from Durmstrang!" spat Ron. "He's competing against Harry! Against Hogwarts! You--you're--" Ron was obviously casting around for words strong enough to describe Hermione's crime, "fraternizing with the enemy, that's what you're doing!"

"But what's it matter if his mother was a giantess?" said Harry.

"Well...no one who knows him will care, 'cos they'll know he's not dangerous," said Ron slowly. "But...Harry, they're just vicious, giants. It's like Hagrid said, they're like trolls...they just like killing, everyone knows that."

Chapter Twenty-Six Quotes

"What did you bring her for?"

"Fleur didn't turn up, I couldn't leave her," Harry panted.

"Harry, you prat," said Ron, "you didn't take that song thing seriously, did you? Dumbledore wouldn't have let any of us drown!"

"The song said--"

"It was only to make sure you got back inside the time limit!" said Ron. "I hope you didn't waste time down there acting the hero!"

Harry felt both stupid and annoyed. It was all very well for Ron; he'd been asleep, he hadn't felt how eerie it was down in the lake, surrounded by spear-carrying merpeople who'd looked more than capable of murder.

Chapter Twenty-Seven Quotes

"Yes," said Hermione in a heated voice, "he sacked her, just because she hadn't stayed in her tent and let herself get trampled--"

"Hermione, will you give it a rest with the elf!" said Ron.

Sirius shook his head and said, "She's got the measure of Crouch better than you have, Ron. If you want to know what a man's like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals."

Page Number: 525
Explanation and Analysis:

"Crouch let his son off? I thought you had the measure of him, Hermione! Anything that threatened to tarnish his reputation had to go; he had dedicated his whole life to becoming Minister of Magic. You saw him dismiss a devoted house-elf because she associated him with the Dark Mark again--doesn't that tell you what he's like? Crouch's fatherly affection stretched just far enough to give his son a trial, and by all accounts, it wasn't much more than an excuse for Crouch to show how much he hated the boy...then he sent him straight to Azkaban."
