Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets is a 2002 film based on the book of the same name by J. K. Rowling.

Directed by Chris Columbus. Screenplay by Steve Kloves.
Hogwarts is Back in Session (taglines)

Harry PotterEdit

  • [to Dobby] Not to be rude or anything, but this isn't really a great time for me to have a House Elf in my bedroom.
  • How can I speak a language without knowing I can?
  • [Last lines] There's no Hogwarts without you, Hagrid.

Ron WeasleyEdit

  • Dad loves Muggles. He thinks they’re fascinating.
  • Follow the spiders! Follow the spiders! If Hagrid ever gets out of Azkaban, I’ll kill him!
  • Why spiders? Why couldn’t it be "follow the butterflies"?!

Draco MalfoyEdit

  • You'll never catch me, Potter!

Albus DumbledoreEdit

  • It is not our abilities that show us what we truly are. It is our choices.
  • I shall never truly be gone unless none here are loyal to me.
  • Help shall always be given at Hogwarts, to those who ask for it.

Tom RiddleEdit

  • [unleashing the Basilisk on Harry] Parseltongue won't save you now, Potter! It only obeys me!
  • Yes, Potter. The process is nearly complete. In a few minutes, Ginny Weasley will be dead, and I will cease to be a memory. Lord Voldemort will return... very... much... alive.
  • [Harry falls to the floor after defeating the Basilisk and having his arm pierced by one of its fangs] Remarkable, isn't it, how quickly the venom of the Basilisk penetrates the body? I guess you have little more than a minute to live. You'll be with your dear Mudblood mother soon, Harry. [Harry puts his hand over Ginny's] Funny, the damage a silly little book can do, especially within the hands of a silly little girl. [Harry takes the diary] What are you doing? [Harry raises the fang above the diary] Stop! NO!!! [He tries to stop Harry, but Harry stabs the diary with the fang and ink runs out like blood. Gaps appear in Tom Riddle's form, light streaming from them. As Riddle screams in rage and agony, Harry continues to stab the diary repeatedly until Riddle vanishes]

Arthur WeasleyEdit

  • Now, Harry, you must know all about Muggles. Tell me. What exactly is the function of a rubber duck?

DialogueEdit

Uncle Vernon: Now, Let's go over our schedule once again, Shall we? Petunia, when the Masons arrive, you will be...
Aunt Petunia: In the lounge. Waiting to welcome them graciously to our home!
Uncle Vernon: Good. And Dudley? You will be...
Dudley: I'll be waiting to open the door!
Uncle Vernon: Excellent! [to Harry] And you?
Harry: I'll be in my bedroom. Making no noise and pretending that I don't exist.
[After Dobby has beaten himself nearly senseless]
Harry: Are you all right?
Dobby: [Dazedly] Dobby had to punish himself, sir. Dobby almost spoke ill of his family, sir.

[Harry hides Dobby in his wardrobe before Vernon comes storming into his bedroom]
Uncle Vernon: What the devil are you doing up here?!
Harry: I was just... [closes the door of his wardrobe]
Uncle Vernon: You just ruined the punchline of my Japanese golfer joke.
Harry: Sorry. [closes it again]
Uncle Vernon: One more sound and you'll wish you'd never been born, boy. And fix that door.
Harry: Yes, sir.
[He closes the door one last time and Vernon leaves]

Mrs. Weasley: (Ron, Fred, George and Harry arrive in her house; angrily) Where HAVE you been?! (To Harry, in a kind, motherly voice) Harry! How wonderful to see you, dear. (To Ron, Fred and George in an angry voice) Beds empty, no note, car gone! You could have died! You could have been seen! (To Harry in a kind, motherly voice) Of course, I don't blame you, Harry, dear.
Ron: They were starving him, Mum! There were bars on his window!
Mrs. Weasley: Well, you'd best hope I don't put bars on your window, Ronald Weasley.

Ginny: (coming into kitchen) Um. Mummy, have you seen my jumper?
Mrs. Weasley: Yes dear, it was on the cat...
[Ginny's eyes widen in shock when she sees Harry sitting at the table]
Harry: Hello. (Ginny runs off looking noticably nervous; Fred and George snicker) ...What did I do?

Mrs. Weasley: Your sons flew that enchanted car of yours to Surrey and back last night!
Mr. Weasley: Did you really? How'd it go? [Mrs. Weasley hits him] I mean, (forcefully) that was very wrong indeed, boys. Very wrong of you.

[Malfoy corners Harry, Hermione, and the Weasley children at Flourish & Blotts Bookstore after Harry gets his picture taken with Lockhart.]
Draco Malfoy: Bet you loved that, didn't you, Potter?! Famous Harry Potter can't even go into a bookshop without making the front page.
Ginny Weasley: Leave him alone.
Draco Malfoy: [Smirking] Oh, look, Potter. You've got yourself a girlfriend!
Lucius Malfoy: [Places the silver snake of his walking stick on Draco's shoulder] Now, now, Draco. Play nicely. [To Harry] Mr. Potter. Lucius Malfoy. We meet at last. Forgive me. [uses the silver snake to pull back Harry's bangs; sees his scar] Your scar is legend. As, of course, is the wizard who gave it to you.
Harry: [firmly] Voldemort killed my parents. He was nothing more than a murderer.
Lucius Malfoy: Hmm, you must be very brave to mention his name. Or very foolish.
Hermione: Fear of a name only increases fear of the thing itself.
Lucius Malfoy: And you must be... Miss Granger. Yes, Draco's told me all about you... and your parents. [glances at the Grangers, who are speaking with Mr. Weasley] Muggles, aren't they? [Looks at Ron] Let me see. Red hair, vacant expressions... [Takes a book out of Ginny's cauldron] Tatty, secondhand book. You must be of the Weasleys.
Arthur Weasley: [Arriving and attempting to ignore Mr. Malfoy] Children, it's mad in here. Let's go outside.
Lucius Malfoy: Well, well, well. Weasley Senior.
Arthur Weasley: Lucius.
Lucius Malfoy: Busy time at the Ministry, Arthur. All those extra raids; I do hope they're paying you overtime. [Picks up one of Ginny's books] Though judging by the state of this, I'd say not. [Places the book back in Ginny's cauldron; another book has been slipped in with it, though no one notices] What's the use of being a disgrace to the name of wizard... if they don't even pay you well for it?
Arthur Weasley: We have a very different idea about what disgraces the name of wizard, Malfoy.
Lucius Malfoy: Clearly. Associating with Muggles... And I thought your family could sink no lower.
[Mr Weasley glares at Mr Malfoy.]
Lucius Malfoy: I'll see you at work.
Draco Malfoy: See you at school.
[Lucius and Draco leave.]

Dean Thomas: Ron? Is that your owl?
(Errol is flying towards the Gryffindor table with a letter; he crashes into a bowl of crisps, knocking them all over the table; Slytherins laugh as Ron nervously picks up the letter and Errol flies off)
Ron: Bloody bird's a menace. [looks at the letter] Oh no!
Seamus Finnigan: Look, everyone! Weasley's got himself a howler!
Neville Longbottom: Go on, Ron. I ignored one from my gran once... [looking uneasy] It was horrible!
(Ron nervously opens the Howler and Mrs. Weasley's voice echoes around the hall)
Mrs. Weasley via Howler: RONALD WEASLEY!!! (The Howler forms itself into a ranting mouth) HOW DARE YOU STEAL THAT CAR?!? I AM ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTED!!! YOUR FATHER'S NOW FACING AN INQUIRY AT WORK, AND IT'S ENTIRELY YOUR FAULT!!! IF YOU PUT ANOTHER TOE OUT OF LINE, WE'LL BRING YOU STRAIGHT HOME!!! (The Howler turns to Ginny, who is eating her breakfast; its voice is now loving) Oh, and Ginny, dear, congratulations on making Gryffindor. Your father and I are so proud. (The Howler turns back to Ron and blows a raspberry at him, then tears itself to pieces)

Ron: Those are Nimbus Two-Thousand and Ones! How did you get those?
Marcus Flint: A gift from Draco's father.
Draco Malfoy: You see, Weasley, unlike some, my father can afford the best.
Hermione: At least no one on the Gryffindor team had to buy their way in. They got in on pure talent.
Draco Malfoy: [Annoyed] No one asked your opinion, you filthy little Mudblood!
[Hermione glares at him with a mixture of hate and hurt.]
Ron: You'll pay for that one, Malfoy! Eat slugs!
[Ron's spell backfires, blasting him off his feet. Harry and Hermione rush to his side.]
Hermione: You okay, Ron? [Ron's face turns green] Say something!
[Ron opens his mouth as if to say something but instead regurgitates slugs.]
Colin Creevey: [starts taking pictures of Ron] Wow! Can you turn him around, Harry?
Harry Potter: No, Colin! Get out of the way. [he and Hermione help Ron to his feet] Let's take him to Hagrid. [Ron regurgitates another slug] He'll know what to do.
[The three of them rush off to Hagrid's while the Slytherins laugh at them.]

Hermione: [in reference to Harry hearing the voice in the corridor] It's a bit strange, isn't it?
Harry: Strange?
Hermione: You hear this voice - a voice only you can hear. And then Mrs. Norris turns up petrified? It's just strange,
Harry: Do you think I should have told them? Dumbledore and the others, I mean.
Ron: Are you mad?
Hermione: No, Harry. Even in the wizarding world, hearing voices isn't a good sign.
Man in Portrait: She's right, you know.

Minerva McGonagall: Yes, Miss Granger?
Hermione Granger: Professor, I was wondering if you'd tell us about the Chamber of Secrets.
Professor Minerva McGonagall: [seeing everyone's faces] Very well. Well, you all knew, of course, that Hogwarts was founded over a thousand years ago, by the four greatest witches and wizards of the age. Godric Gryffindor, Helga Hufflepuff, Rowena Ravenclaw, and Salazar Slytherin. Now three of the founders co-existed quite harmoniously. One did not.
Ron Weasley: Three guesses who.
Professor Minerva McGonagall: Salazar Slytherin wished to be more selective about the students admitted to Hogwarts. He believed magical learning should be kept within all magic families. In other words, pure-bloods. Unable to sway the others, he decided to leave the school. Now according to legend, Slytherin had built a hidden chamber in this castle, known as the Chamber of Secrets. Though shortly before departing, he sealed it until that time when his own true heir returned to the school. The heir alone would be able to open the chamber and unleash the horror within, and by so doing, purge the school of all those who, in Slytherin's view, were unworthy to study magic.
Hermione Granger: Muggle-borns.
Professor Minerva McGonagall: Well, naturally the school has been searched many times. No such chamber has been found.
Hermione Granger: Professor, what exactly does legend tell us lies within the Chamber?
Minerva McGonagall: Well the Chamber is said to be home to something that only the Heir of Slytherin can control. it is said to be the home... of a monster.
[Hermione stares in shock, and Ron turns to Malfoy, who smirks.]

[At the Dueling Club]
Gilderoy Lockhart: Let me introduce my assistant... Professor Snape. [Snape grudgingly walks up onto the platform] He has sportingly agreed to help me with a short demonstration. Now, I don't want any of you youngsters to worry. You'll still have your Potions Master when I'm through with him! Never fear.
[Lockhart and Snape approach each other, bow to each other, walk a fair distance apart and ready their wands.]
Gilderoy Lockhart: One, two, three...
Snape: Expelliarmus!
[The spell blasts Lockhart across the room.]
Hermione: [concerned] Do you think he's all right?
Ron: [laughs] Who cares?!
Gilderoy Lockhart: An excellent idea to show them that, Professor Snape! But if you don't mind me saying, it was pretty obvious, uh, what you were about to do. And if I had wanted to stop you, it would have been only too easy--
Snape: [losing patience] Perhaps it would be prudent to first teach the students to block unfriendly spells, Professor?
Gilderoy Lockhart: An excellent suggestion, Professor Snape. Uh... Let's have a volunteer pair. Uh, Potter, Weasley. How about you?
[Harry walks to the platform steps]
Snape: Weasley's wand causes devastation with the simplest spells. He'd be sending Potter to the hospital wing in a matchbox. Might I suggest someone from my own house? Malfoy, perhaps? Wands at the ready.

Draco Malfoy: Scared, Potter?
Harry: You wish.

[Harry and Malfoy's duel]
Lockhart: On the count of three, cast your charms to disarm your opponent - only to disarm. We don't want any accidents here. One, two--
Draco Malfoy: Everte Statum!
[Harry is blasted into doing two to three 360s in the air. He gets up.]
Harry: Rictusempra!
[Malfoy does several horizontal flips in the air, landing in front of Snape. He grabs Malfoy and forces him back in place]
Lockhart: [indignant] I said disarm only!
Draco Malfoy: Serpensortia!
[A snake flies out of Malfoy's wand]
Snape: Don't move, Potter. I'll get rid of it for you.
Lockhart: Allow me, Professor Snape! Alarte Ascendere!
[The snake blasts into the air, hisses at the camera, then lands back down.]

[Using a Polyjuice Potion, Harry and Ron are now disguised as Goyle and Crabbe; Percy Weasley spots them as they leave the 2nd floor girls' bathroom]
Percy Weasley: Excuse me!
Ron Weasley: What are you doing dow- [Harry hits him; Ron clears his throat and speaks more authoritatively] I mean, What are you doing down here?
Percy Weasley: I happen to be a school Prefect. You, on the other hand, have no business wandering the corridors this time of night. What's your names again?
[Harry and Ron look at each other uncertainly]
Ron Weasley: Uh...
Harry Potter: I'm...
Draco Malfoy: [Rounding a corner] Crabbe! Goyle! Where have you two been? Pigging out in the Great Hall all this time? [Looks oddly at Harry, who is still wearing his glasses] Why are you wearing glasses?
Harry: [Quickly removes his glasses] Um... Um... reading.
Draco Malfoy: Reading? [Harry nods] I didn't know you could read. [Turns to Percy] And what are you doing down here, Weasley?
Percy Weasley: Mind your attitude, Malfoy.
[Draco just smirks and walks off; Harry and Ron follow him to the Slytherin common room.]

Draco Malfoy: You'd never know the Weasleys were purebloods, the way they behave. They're an embarrassment to the wizarding world - all of them!
[Ron (disguised as Crabbe) clenches his fist angrily]
Draco Malfoy: What's wrong with you, Crabbe?
Ron: [gets nudged by Harry (disguised as Goyle)] Ahem... stomachache.
Draco Malfoy: You know, I'm surprised that the Daily Prophet hasn't done a report on all these attacks. I suppose Dumbledore is trying to hush it all up. Father always said Dumbledore was the worst thing that ever happened to this place.
Harry: You're wrong!
Draco Malfoy: [sternly] What? You think there's someone here who's worse than Dumbledore?
[Long pause]
Draco Malfoy: Well? Do you?!
Harry: [gulps] Harry Potter?
[Long pause again]
Draco Malfoy: [severely] Good one, Goyle. You're absolutely right. [sarcastic] Saint Potter! And people actually think that he's the Heir of Slytherin?!
Harry: But then you must have some idea who's behind it all.
Draco Malfoy: You know I don't, Goyle. I told you yesterday. I mean, how many times do I have to tell you? [picks up the package and shakes it] Is this yours? [Harry shakes his head] But, my father did say this: It's been 50 years since the Chamber was opened. He wouldn't tell me who opened it, only that they were expelled. The last time the Chamber of Secrets was opened, a Mudblood died. So, it's only a matter of time before one of them is killed this time. As for me... I hope it's Granger.
[Ron tries to rush at him, but Harry stops him]
Draco Malfoy: What's the matter with you two?! You're acting very... odd!
Harry: It's his... stomachache.

(Harry, Ron, and Hermione discussing about whether or not to ask Hagrid about the Chamber of Secrets)
Hermione: Look, Hagrid is our friend, so why don't we just go and ask him?
Ron: [Sarcastically] That will be a cheerful visit. "Hello, Hagrid. Tell us, have you sent anything mad and hairy loose in the castle lately?"
Hagrid: [Appears from behind] Mad and hairy? Yer wouldn't be talkin' about me, now are ya?
Harry, Ron, and Hermione: No!

Aragog: Who is it?
Harry: [to a terrified Ron] Don't panic.
Aragog: Hagrid? Is that you?
Harry: We're friends of Hagrid.
[A colossal, tarantula-like spider emerges]
Harry: And you... You're Aragog, aren't you?
Aragog: Yes. Hagrid has never sent men into our hollow before.
Harry: Well, he's in trouble. Up at the school, there have been attacks. They think it's Hagrid. They think he opened the Chamber of Secrets, like before.
Aragog: That's a lie! Hagrid never opened the Chamber of Secrets.
Harry: Then you're not the monster?
Aragog: No. The monster was born in the castle. I came to Hagrid from a distant land, in the pocket of a traveler.
Ron: [noticing other giant spiders around them] Harry...
Harry: Shush. [to Aragog] Well, if you're not the monster, then what did kill that girl 50 years ago?
Aragog: We do not speak of it! It is an ancient creature that we spiders fear above all others.
Harry: But have you seen it?
Aragog: I never saw any part of the castle but the box in which Hagrid kept me. The girl was discovered in a bathroom. When I was accused, Hagrid brought me here.
Ron: Harry?
Harry: [irritated] What?!
[Ron points upwards in terror - giant spiders descend and surround them]
Harry: [to Aragog] Well... thank you. We'll just go.
Aragog: Go? [Ron nods fearfully] I think not. My sons and daughters do not harm Hagrid on my command, but I cannot deny them fresh meat when it wanders so willingly into our midst. Goodbye, friend of Hagrid.
Ron: [to Harry] Can we panic now? [the spiders move in for the attack] Know any spells?
Harry: One - but it's not powerful enough for all of them.
Ron: Where's Hermione when you need her?

Ron: "Follow the spiders"! "Follow the spiders"! If Hagrid ever gets out of Azkaban, I'll kill him! [The flying car runs away from Hogwarts] I mean, what was the point of sending us in there? What have we found out?
Harry: We know one thing. Hagrid never opened the Chamber of Secrets. He was innocent.

Minerva McGonagall: As you can see, the Heir of Slytherin has left another message. Our worst fear has been realized. A student has been taken by the monster into the Chamber itself. The students must be sent home. I'm afraid this is the end of Hogwarts.
Lockhart: So sorry. Dozed off. What have I missed?
Snape: A girl has been snatched by the monster, Lockhart. Your moment has come at last.
Lockhart: My moment?
Snape: Weren't you saying just last night that you've known all along where the entrance to the Chamber of Secrets is?
Minerva McGonagall: That's settled. We'll leave you to deal with the monster, Gilderoy. Your skills, after all, are legend.
Lockhart: Very well. I'll just be in my office getting... getting ready.
Poppy Pomfrey: Who is it that the monster's taken, Minerva?
Minerva McGonagall: Ginny Weasley.
[Harry and Ron are surprised and read the message written in blood on the wall]
Ron: "Her skeleton will lie in the Chamber forever". Ginny.

Moaning Myrtle: Oh, Harry? If you die down there, you're welcome to share my toilet. [giggles]
Harry: Uh... thanks, Myrtle.

Harry: It's a snake skin.
Ron: Bloody hell. Whoever shed this must be 60 feet long, or more. [Gilderoy Lockhart pretends to pass out.] Heart of a lion, this one.
Lockhart: [jumps up and steals Ron's wand; aims the wand at Harry] The adventure ends here, boys. But don't fret. [Points it at Ron] The world will know our story. How I was too late to save the girl. How you two tragically lost your minds at the sight of her mangled body. So... [Aims it at Harry] You first, Mr. Potter. Say goodbye... to your memories. Obliviate!
[Lockhart is blasted into the ceiling by the spell, causing a cave-in that separates Harry from him and Ron.]
Ron: Harry?! Harry!
Harry: Ron! Ron, are you okay?!
Ron: I'm fine.
Gilderoy Lockhart: [sits up and grins at Ron] Hello. Who are you?
Ron: Uh, Ron Weasley.
Gilderoy Lockhart: Really? And, um, who-who am I?
Ron: [to Harry] Lockhart's Memory Charm backfired! He hasn't got a clue who he is!
Gilderoy Lockhart: [picks up a rock] It's an odd sort of place, isn't it? Do you live here?
Ron: [takes the rock from Lockhart] No.
Gilderoy Lockhart: Really?
[Ron hits Lockhart on the head with the rock, knocking him out.]
Ron: What do I do now?
Harry: You wait here and try to shift some of this rock so we can get back through. I'll go on and find Ginny.
Ron: Okay.

[Harry has just entered the Chamber of Secrets. He see Ginny Weasley lying motionless at the end of the chamber.]
Harry: Ginny. [Runs to her] Ginny. Ginny. Please don't be dead. Wake up. Wake up!
Tom Riddle: [suddenly appears out of nowhere] She won't wake.
Harry: Tom? Tom Riddle? What do you mean she won't wake? She's not...?
Tom Riddle: She's still alive, but only just.
Harry: Are you a ghost?
Tom Riddle: A memory, preserved in a diary for fifty years.
Harry: [touches her hand] She's cold as ice. Ginny, please don't be dead. Wake up. [Tom picks up Harry's wand] You've got to help me, Tom. There's a basilisk--
Tom Riddle: It won't come until it's called.
Harry: Give me my wand, Tom.
Tom Riddle: You won't be needing it.
Harry: Listen, we've got to go, we've got to save her!
Tom Riddle: I'm afraid I can't do that, Harry. You see, as poor Ginny grows weaker... I grow stronger. Yes, Harry. It was Ginny Weasley who opened the Chamber of Secrets.
Harry: No. She couldn't. She wouldn't!
Tom Riddle: It was Ginny who set the basilisk on the mudbloods and Filch's cat, Ginny who wrote the threatening messages on the walls.
Harry: Why?
Tom Riddle: Because I told her to. You'll find I can be very... persuasive. Not that she knew what she was doing, she was in, shall we say, a kind of trance. But still, the power of the diary began to scare her, and she tried to dispose of it in the girl's bathroom. And then who should find it... but you? The very person I was most anxious to meet.
Harry: And why did you want to meet me?
Tom Riddle: I knew I had to talk to you, meet you if I could. So I decided to show you my capture of that brainless oaf Hagrid toain your trust.
Harry: [angrily] Hagrid's my friend! And you framed him, didn't you?
Tom Riddle: It was my word against Hagrid's. Only Dumbledore seemed to think he was innocent.
Harry: [smiling] I'd bet Dumbledore saw right through you.
Tom Riddle: He certainly kept an annoyingly close watch on me after that. I knew it wouldn't be safe for me to open the Chamber again while I was still at school, so I decided to leave behind a diary - preserving my sixteen year-old self in its pages so that one day, I would be able lead another to finish Salazar Slytherin's noble work.
Harry: Well, you haven't finished it this time. In a few hours, the mandrake draught will be ready and those who have been petrified will be all right again.
Tom Riddle: Haven't I told you? Killing mudbloods doesn't matter to me anymore? For many months now, my new target... has been you. How is it that a baby like you with no extraordinary magical talent was able to defeat the greatest wizard of all time? How did you escape, with nothing but a scar, while Lord Voldemort's powers were destroyed?!
Harry: Why do you care how I escaped? Voldemort was after your time.
Tom Riddle: Voldemort is my past, present and future. [uses Harry's wand to write his name in midair: TOM MARVOLO RIDDLE. He slashes the wand and the letters rearrange to become I AM LORD VOLDEMORT]
Harry: [stunned] You. You're the heir of Slytherin. You're Voldemort.
Tom Riddle: Surely, you didn't think I was going to keep my filthy Muggle father's name? No. I fashioned myself a new name. A name I knew wizards everywhere would one day fear to speak, when I became the greatest sorcerer in the world!
Harry: Albus Dumbledore is the greatest sorcerer in the world!
Tom Riddle: Dumbledore's been driven out of this castle by the mere memory of me!
Harry: He'll never be gone! Not as long as those who remain are loyal to him! [Fawkes suddenly enters the chamber] Fawkes? [Fawkes drops the Sorting Hat to Harry and leaves]
Tom Riddle: So... this is what Dumbledore sends his great defender: a songbird and an old hat. [Moves so he is now in front of the giant stone head of Salazar Slytherin; he speaks Parseltounge, and the head's mouth begins to open] Let's match the power of Lord Voldemort, heir of Salazar Slytherin, against the famous Harry Potter.

Lucius Malfoy: The culprit has been identified, I presume?
Albus Dumbledore: Oh, yes.
Lucius Malfoy: And...? Who was it?
Albus Dumbledore: [after exchanging a look with Harry] Voldemort.
Lucius Malfoy: Ah.
Albus Dumbledore: Only this time, he chose to act through somebody else... by means of this. [He reveals Tom Riddle's diary - which Lucius had slipped into Ginny's cauldron. Dobby tugs Harry's sleeve uneasily and looks over at Lucius.]
Lucius: I see.
Dumbledore: Fortunately, our young Mr. Potter discovered it. One hopes that no more of Voldemort's old schoolthings should find their way into innocent hands. The consequences for the one responsible would be... severe.
Lucius Malfoy: Well... let us hope that Mr. Potter will always be around to save the day.
Harry: Well, don't worry. I will be.

Harry: Mr. Malfoy. Mr. Malfoy! [Lucius turns around] I have something of yours. [Hands him the diary]
Lucius Malfoy: Mine? I don't know what you're talking about.
Harry: Oh, I think you do, sir. I think you slipped the diary into Ginny Weasley's cauldron, that day at Diagon Alley.
Lucius Malfoy: You do, do you? [Hands the diary to Dobby] Well...[Whispers] why don't you prove it? [Harry doesn't answer because he just did] Come, Dobby.
Harry: [Whispers to Dobby] Open it.
[Dobby opens Tom Riddle's Diary to find a folded sock inside.]
Lucius Malfoy: Dobby?!
Dobby: Master has given Dobby a sock.
Lucius Malfoy: What? [Turns around] I didn't give--
Dobby: [Holding the sock] Master has presented Dobby with clothes. Dobby is free.
[Harry pulls up his pant leg, revealing it was his sock.]
Lucius Malfoy: You lost me my SERVANT! [Pulls his wand from his cane and aims it directly at Harry. Dobby then stands in his way]
Dobby: You shall not harm Harry Potter!
Lucius Malfoy: [About to curse Harry] Avada-- [Dobby blasts him backwards across the hall] [stands] Your parents were meddlesome fools, too. Mark my words, Potter: one day soon, you're going to meet the same, sticky end. [Leaves]

[Snape is reading a newspaper. On the front cover is the moving image of Ron's father's car flying. The headline reads "Flying Ford Anglia Mystifies Muggles"]

Snape's voice: You were seen by no less than seven Muggles!

[He throws the newspaper down and glares at Harry and Ron]

Snape: Do you have any idea how serious this is? You have risked the exposure of our world. Not to mention the damage you inflicted on a Whomping Willow that's been on these grounds since before you you were born.
Ron: Honestly, Professor Snape, I think it did more damage to us.
Snape: Silence!

[The room goes into silence] I assure you that were you in Slytherin and your fate rested with me, the both of you would be on the train home. Tonight!


[Hagrid arrives at the Great Hall]

Hagrid: Sorry I'm late. The bird delivering my release papers got all lost and confused. Some ruddy bird called Errol.
[Errol is the elderly and forgetful owl of the Weasley family]

Harry Potter There's no Hogwarts without you, Hagrid. [hugs Hagrid.]
