Dobby quotes are flying around the internet, we thought we would do a blog looking at some of the best quotes from this character. Dobby made his debut in Harry potter’s second movie – Harry potter and chamber of secrets. He was later also seen in the last film of the Harry Potter series- Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
Dobby was initially a slave of Malfoy’s but later his fondness for Harry made him go against them. He was well aware of all the plotting Lucius was doing against Harry. He tried to help Harry several times but couldn’t succeed until Harry freed him from the Malfoy’s by giving him a sock.

Dobby – The Free Elf
While working at Hogwarts, Dobby was also paid for his services but his prime focus was always on safeguarding Harry in all ways.
For instance, he told him about the location of the Room of Requirement and also helped him find Gillyweed. He rescued Harry and so many others from the Malfoy manor until Bellatrix Lestrange propelled a knife into him. Even in his last moments, he only whispered Harry’s name.
Dobby was a big sock-lover, he even utilized his first salary to buy yarn and knit them on his own. The elf with tennis-ball-sized eyes owned several types of socks, some gifted by Harry and Ron while some that he knitted for himself. The socks were a sign of his freedom and service to the Potter.
Apart from knitting, the green-eyed elf also knew several kinds of magic. He had the skill to disappear at any time from anywhere(Yes, even at Hogwarts). He was also known to be Dumbledore’s secret keeper.
Harry too was extremely indebted for all that Dobby did for him throughout his life. Harry himself dug Dobby’s grave and threw a stone in the sea saying, “HERE LIES DOBBY, A FREE ELF”.
