  • "But there are some injuries you can’t cure… old curses…and there are poisons without antidotes…… "
  • "You won’t, dear, we’ll find an antidote, don’t worry," said Mrs. Weasley soothingly.
  • Harry pulled out his trusty copy of Advanced Potion-Making and turned to the chapter on Antidotes.
  • And there it was, scrawled right across a long list of antidotes.
  • You are to create an antidote for the poison within it before the end of the lesson.
  • Slowly, Slughorn moved around the room, examining the various antidotes.
  • Oh, you’re like your mother … well, 1 can’t fault you … a bezoar would certainly act as an antidote to all these potions!
  • You couldn’t make him an antidote, could you?
  • ’Brilliant,’ said Ron eagerly, and he gulped the antidote down noisily.
  • Her half-finished antidote, comprising fifty-two ingredients including a chunk of her own hair, bubbled sluggishly behind Slughorn, who had eyes for nobody but Harry.
  • He is much more accomplished at Occlumency than poor Morfin Gaunt, and I would be astonished if he has not carried an antidote to Veritaserum with him ever since I coerced him into giving me this travesty of a recollection.
  • People seemed to think that it might have been an accident, given that he had been in the Potions master’s room at the time, and that as he had been given an antidote immediately there was no real harm done.
  • As I doubt the Half-blood prince" she gave the book another scornful look "could dream up an antidote for a dozen different love potions at once, I’d just invite someone to go with you, that’ll stop all the others thinking they’ve still got a chance.
  • I’ve got the necessary here in my bag, it’s not a difficult antidote …’ Ron burst through the door into Slughorn’s overheated, crowded study, tripped over a tasselled footstool, regained his balance by seizing Harry around the neck and muttered, ’She didn’t see that, did she?
  • ’Er,’ said Harry, somewhat distracted by the fact that Ron was now elbowing him in the ribs in an attempt to force his way into the room, ’well, I’ve never mixed an antidote for a love potion, sir, and by the time I get it right Ron might’ve done something serious —’ Helpfully, Ron chose this moment to moan, ’I can’t see her.
  • ’… which means, of course, that assuming we have achieved correct identification of the potion’s ingredients by Scarpin’s Revelaspell, our primary aim is not the relatively simple one of selecting antidotes to those ingredients in and of themselves, but to find that added component which will, by an almost alchemical process, transform these disparate elements —’ Ron was sitting beside Harry with his mouth half-open, doodling absently on his new copy of Advanced Potion-Making.
  • ’Just like his mother, she had the same intuitive grasp of potion-making, it’s undoubtedly from Lily he gets it … yes, Harry, yes, if you’ve got a bezoar to hand, of course that would do the trick … although as they don’t work on everything, and are pretty rare, it’s still worth knowing how to mix antidotes …’ The only person in the room looking angrier than Hermione was Malfoy, who, Harry was pleased to see, had spilled some-thing that looked like cat sick over himself.

  • There are no more uses of "antidote" in the book.
