There is a scene in the first book, before Ron and Harry befriend Hermione, 
where Hermione cries because of a comment of Ron's. However, this incident, 
combined with Hermione's unexpected loyalty over the encounter with the 
troll, actually serves as the trigger for Ron and Harry befriending 
In the fourth book it is Snape who brings Hermione to tears with a comment 
about her big teeth. Ron and Harry upset her with their behaviour 
surrounding the dance, but they are not teasing her personally - they are 
generally acting like jerks towards the female population, and it doesn't 
make them look good.
