[Repeated line] He's not back!


[After Voldemort returns] He's back!

Rubeus Hagrid: It’s changing out there. There’s a storm coming, Harry... just like last time.

Severus Snape: In the past it was often the Dark Lord's pleasure to invade the minds of his victims, creating visions designed to torture them into madness. Only after extracting the last exquisite ounce of agony, only when he had them literally begging for death would he finally... kill them.

Read it, control it, unhinge it.[Reply to Harry's question of Voldemort's mind-controlling ability]

Ronald Weasley: Bloody hell...

Harry: Hey, Big D. Beat up another ten-year-old?
Dudley: This one deserved it.
Harry: Five against one. Very brave.
Dudley: You're one to talk. Moaning in your sleep every night. At least I'm not afraid of my pillow. "Don't kill Cedric!" Who's Cedric? Your boyfriend?
Harry: Shut up.
Dudley: "He's going to kill me, Mum!" Where is your mum, Potter? She dead? Is she dead? Is she a dead Potter?
[Harry walks straight up to Dudley and forces his wand into his throat. The weather begins to change.]
Dudley: What are you doing?!
Harry: I'm not doing anything!

Harry: Where are we going? The letter said I had been expelled from Hogwarts.
Alastor "Mad-eye" Moody: Well you haven't been. Not Yet. Kingsley you take point.
Kingsley Shacklebolt: Alright.
Harry: But the letter said--
Kingsley Shacklebolt: [Interrupting Harry] Dumbledore has persuaded the Minister to suspend your expulsion pending a formal hearing.
Harry: A hearing?
Kingsley Shacklebolt: Uh-huh.
Nymphadora Tonks: Don't worry Harry, we'll explain everything when we get back to headquarters.
Alastor "Mad-eye" Moody: Sst! Not here Nymphadora!
Nymphadora Tonks: [Her hair turns red] Don't call me Nymphadora!
[Moody summons brooms with his wand]
Alastor "Mad-eye" Moody: Stay in formation everyone. Don't break ranks if one of us is killed!

[Harry, Ron, Hermione, Fred and George are listening in on the Order's meeting]
Sirius: If anyone has a right to know it's Harry. If it wasn't for him we wouldn't even know Voldemort was back. He's not a child, Molly!
Molly Weasley: He's not a adult either. He's not James, Sirius.
Sirius Black: He's not your son.
Molly Weasley: He's as good as. Who else has he got?
[Ginny joins them]
Harry: Hey, Ginny.
Sirius: He's got me!
Snape: How touching and paternal, Black. Perhaps Potter will grow up to be a felon, just like his godfather.
Sirius: Now you stay out of this, Snivellus.
Harry: Snape's part of the Order?
Ron: Git.
Sirius: I don't care what Dumbledore says about your supposed reformation, I know better.
Snape: Why don't you tell him? Or are you afraid he won't take serious the word of a man hiding in his mother's house?
[Crookshanks starts to play with the Extendable Ear eventually pulling it loose]
Ron: Hermione, I hate your cat.
Hermione: Bad Crookshanks!

Arthur Weasley: This is very, very peculiar. It seems that your hearing at the Minstry is to be before the entire Wizengamot.
Harry: I don't understand, what's the Ministry of Magic got against me?
Moody: Show him. He'll find out soon enough.
[Kingsley shows Harry a newspaper with the head line "The Boy who Lies?"]
Sirius: He's been attacking Dumbledore as well. Fudge is using all his power, including his influence at the Daily Prophet, to smear anyone who claims the Dark Lord has returned.
Harry: Why?
Lupin: The Minister thinks Dumbledore's after his job.
Harry: But that's insane. No one in their right mind could believe that Dumbledore--
Lupin: Exactly the point, Fudge isn't in his right mind. It's been twisted and warped by fear.

Remus Lupin: Now fear makes people do terrible things, Harry. The last time Voldemort gained power he almost destroyed everything we hold most dear. Now he's returned and I'm afraid the Minister will do almost anything to avoid facing that terrifying truth.
Sirius: We think Voldemort wants to build up his army again. [Everyone turns to face Sirius] Fourteen years ago he had huge numbers at his command, not only witches and wizards but all sorts of dark creatures. He's been recruiting heavily and we've been attempting to do the same. But gathering followers isn't the only thing he's interested in.
[Moody lets out a loud cough]
Sirius We believe Voldemort may be after something else--
Moody: Sirius--
Sirius: Something he didn't have last time.
Harry: You mean, a weapon?
[Sirius opens his mouth to speak]
Mrs Weasley: No! That's enough! He's just a boy! You tell him much more and you might as well induct him in the Order straight away.
Harry: Good, I want to join. If Voldemort's raising an army then I want to fight.

Dumbledore: Witness for the defense, Albus Percival Wulfric...Brian...Dumbledore.
Fudge: You, you got our message that the time and place of the hearing had been changed, did you?
Dumbledore: I must have missed it. But by a happy mistake I arrived at the Ministry three hours early.
[Pause]
Dumbledore: Charges?
Fudge:The charges against the accused are as follows; that he did knowingly and in full awareness of the illegality of his actions, produced a Patronus charm in the presence of a Muggle. Do you deny producing said Patronus?
Harry: No, I--
Fudge: [Interrupting Harry] And you were aware that you were forbidden to use magic outside school while under the age of seventeen?
Harry: Yes.
Conrelius Fudge: Witches and wizards of the Wizengamot--
Harry: I was only doing it because of the Dementors!
Amelia Bones: Dementors? In Little Whinging?
Fudge: That's quite clever. Muggles can't see Dementors, can they boy? Highly convenient.
Harry: I'm not lying, there were two of them and if I hadn't--
Fudge: [Interrupting Harry] Enough! I'm sorry to interrupt what I'm sure would have been a very well reversed story, but since you can produce no witnesses of the event--
Dumbledore: Pardon me Minister, but as it happens we can.

Amelia Bones: Please describe the attack. What did they look like?
Mrs Figg: Well one of them was very large, and the other rather skinny.
Cornelius Fudge: Not the boys, the Dementors.
Mrs Figg: Alright, right, well um, big. Cloaked. Then everything went cold, as though all the happiness had gone from the world.
Cornelius Fudge: Now look here, Dementors don't just wander into a muggle suburb and happen across a wizard, the odds are astronomical.
Dumbledore: I don't think anyone would believe the Dementors were there by coincidence, Minister.
Umbridge: Ahem. I'm sure I must have misunderstood you, Professor. Dementors are after all under the control of the Ministry of Magic. So silly of me but it sounded, for a moment, as though you were suggesting that the Ministry had ordered the attack on this boy.
Dumbldore: That would be disturbing indeed, madame Under-Secretary, which is why I'm sure the Ministry will be mounting a full-scale inquiry into why the two Dementors were so far away from Azkaban and why they mounted an attack without authorization. Of course, there is someone who might be behind the attack.

Dumbledore: Cornelius, I implore you to see reason. The evidence the Dark Lord's return is incontrovertible.
Fudge: He's not back!
Dumbledore: In the matter of Harry Potter, the law clearly states that magic may be used before Muggles in life-threatening situations.
Cornelius Fudge: Laws can be changed if necessary, Dumbledore!
Dumbledore: Clearly, it has become practice to hold a full criminal trial to deal with a simple matter of underage magic.
Amelia Bones: Those in favor of conviction?
[Fudge raises his hand followed by some other people including Umbridge]
Amelia Bones: Those in favor of clearing the accused of all charges?
[Most people raise their hand, including Amelia Bones and Miss Figg, who actually has no vote in this]
Cornelius Fudge: [Reluctantly] Cleared of all charges!

Hermione: Everyone this is Loony Love--Luna Lovegood.
[Beat]
Hermione:What an interesting necklace.
Luna: It's a charm actually. Keeps away the Nargles.
[Pause]
Luna: Hungry. I hope there's pudding.
[The carriage starts riding]
Ron: [Whispering] What's a Nargle?
Hermione Granger: No idea.
