"In order for the protection to form, the sacrificing person must be given the option to live, but consciously choose death. This is why James Potter's death did not confer magical protection on Lily and Harry in 1981; Voldemort was set upon killing James and thus never gave him an opportunity to choose to save himself. Lily, on the other hand, was offered the chance to step aside because Voldemort had promised Severus Snape that he would not kill her unless she got in his way. Her conscious refusal to comply with Voldemort's demand is why magical protection was conferred upon her son."

But didn't James say, "Lily, take Harry and run." or something to that effect? That doesn't count?
