Gargoyle #1: "You should be in class, Sonny Jim."
Harry: "This is urgent."
Gargoyle #2: "Ooooh, urgent, is it? Well, that's put us in our place, hasn't it?"
Harry Potter tries to get into the staffroom.[src]

The Gargoyles situated outside the staffroom

These two gargoyles stood in the staffroom corridor, protecting the staffroom at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.[1]


In 1995, Harry Potter tried to get into the staffroom to see Professor Grubbly-Plank after his owl Hedwig was injured. They were less than sympathetic to his pleading.[1]

During the Battle of Hogwarts in 1998, both gargoyles were smashed apart by a stray jinx that had sailed through a broken window. As Harry rushed past them, one of the broken gargoyle's heads remarked "Oh, don't mind me... I'll just lie here and crumble..."[2]
