VERNON DURSLEY
This isn't just goodbye, boy, is it? This is farewell.
DUDLEY DURSLEY
I don't understand. Isn't he coming with us?
VERNON DURSLEY
Who?
DUDLEY DURSLEY
Harry.
VERNON DURSLEY
Absolutely not.
DUDLEY DURSLEY
Why?
VERNON DURSLEY
Why?
VERNON DURSLEY
Because he doesn't want to. Do you, boy?
HARRY POTTER
Absolutely not, no. Besides, I'm just a waste of space. Isn't that right, Vernon?
VERNON DURSLEY
Come on Dudley. We're off.
DUDLEY DURSLEY
I don't think you're a waste of space.
HARRY POTTER
Thanks.
HARRY POTTER
[Smiles at Dudley] See you, Big D.

HERMIONE GRANGER
[upon arriving at Godric's Hollow] We should have taken polyjuice.
HARRY POTTER
No... this is where I was born. I won't return as someone else.
HARRY POTTER
This is mental.
HERMIONE GRANGER
Completely.
RON WEASLEY
The world's mental.
ALASTOR 'MAD-EYE' MOODY
Potter, you're underage. Which means you still have the Trace on you.
HARRY POTTER
What's the Trace?
ALASTOR 'MAD-EYE' MOODY
If you sneeze, the Ministry will know who wipes your nose. Point is, we'll have to use those means of transport the Trace can't detect. Brooms, thestrals, and the like. We'll go in pairs, that way if anyones out there waiting for us, and I reckon there will be, they won't know which Harry Potter is the real one.
HARRY POTTER
The real one?
ALASTOR 'MAD-EYE' MOODY
[Brings out Polyjuice Potion] I believe you're familiar with this particular brew.
HARRY POTTER
No, absolutely not.
HERMIONE GRANGER
Told you he'd take it well.
ALASTOR 'MAD-EYE' MOODY
[About Polyjuice Potion] Fair warning, it tastes like goblin piss.
FRED WEASLEY
Have lots of experience with that, do you, Mad-Eye? ...Just trying to diffuse the tension.
KINGSLEY SHACKLEBOLT
[pointing his wand at Lupin] The last words that Albus Dumbledore said to the pair of us.
REMUS LUPIN
"Harry is the best hope we have. Trust him."
LORD VOLDEMORT
Severus. I was beginning to worry that you had lost your way. Come, we've saved you a seat. You bring news, I trust?
SEVERUS SNAPE
It will happen Saturday next, at nightfall.
YAXLEY
I heard differently, my Lord. Dawlish, the Auror, has let slip that the Potter boy will not be moved until the 30th of this month, the day before he turns 17.
SEVERUS SNAPE
This is a false trail. The Auror office no longer plays any part in the protection of Harry Potter.
FRED WEASLEY
[Walking into burrow and seeing the injured Geroge] George! How do you feel?
GEORGE WEASLEY
[Quietly] Saint-like.
FRED WEASLEY
[Confused pause] Come again?
GEORGE WEASLEY
Saint like. I'm holy... [Points to spot where his ear is missing] Holey, get it?
FRED WEASLEY
[laughs quietly] The whole world of ear-related humor, and you go for, "I'm holy"? You're pathetic.
GEORGE WEASLEY
Reckon I'm still better looking than you.
LORD VOLDEMORT
What say you, Pius?
PIUS THICKNESSE
One hears many things my Lord, as if the truth is among them is not clear.
LORD VOLDEMORT
Ha! Spoken like a true politician. You will, I think, prove most useful, Pius.
HARRY POTTER
What's wrong?
RON WEASLEY
Wrong? Nothing's wrong. Not according to you, anyway.
HARRY POTTER
Look, if you've got something to say, don't be shy. Spit it out.
RON WEASLEY
All right, I'll spit it out. But don't expect me to be grateful just because now there's another damn thing we've gotta find.
HARRY POTTER
I thought you knew what you signed up for!
RON WEASLEY
Yeah. I thought I did, too.
HARRY POTTER
Well then, I'm sorry, but I don't quite understand. What part of this isn't living up to your expectations? Did you think we were gonna be staying in a five-star hotel? Finding a Horcrux every other day? You thought you'd be back with your mum by Christmas?
RON WEASLEY
I just thought after all this time we would have actually achieved something! I thought you knew what you were doing! I thought Dumbledore would've told you something worthwhile! I thought you had a plan!
HARRY POTTER
I told you everything Dumbledore told me! And in case you haven't noticed, we have found a Horcrux already.
RON WEASLEY
[bitterly] Yeah and we're about as close to getting rid of it as we are to finding the rest of them, aren't we?
HERMIONE GRANGER
[trying to intervene] Ron, please. [She tries to take the locket off of Ron, but he angrily shoves her away] Please take the Horcrux off! You won't be saying any of this if you hadn't been wearing it all day!
RON WEASLEY
You don't know why I listen to that radio every night, do you? To make sure I don't hear Ginny's name. Or Fred, or George, or Mum-
HARRY POTTER
What, you think I'm not listening too?! You think I don't know how this feels?!
RON WEASLEY
No, you don't know how it feels! Your parents are dead! You have no family!
HERMIONE GRANGER
Stop! Stop! [pulls the boys apart]
HARRY POTTER
Fine then, go! Go then!
HERMIONE GRANGER
Ron...
RON WEASLEY
[turns to Hermione] And you? Are you coming or are you staying?
RON WEASLEY
Fine. I get it. I saw you two the other night.
HERMIONE GRANGER
[tears in her eyes] Ron, that's - that's nothing!
RON WEASLEY
How long do you think she'll stay mad at me?
HARRY POTTER
Just keep talking about that little ball of light touching your heart, and she'll come 'round.
FRED AND GEORGE
[disguised as Harry] Wow, we're identical!
HARRY POTTER
[about Ron, after he returns] You're not still mad at him, are you?
HERMIONE GRANGER
I'm always mad at him.
DOBBY THE HOUSE ELF
[in the kitchen at Grimmauld Place] And then Dobby saw Kreacher talking to the thief Mundungus...
MUNDUNGUS FLETCHER
[interrupting] I'm not a thief! You foul little... git! I'm a buyer and purveyor of wondrous objects.
RON WEASLEY
You're a thief, Dung, everyone knows it!
REMUS LUPIN
What creature sat in the corner the first time Harry Potter visited my office in Hogwarts?
HARRY POTTER
Are you mad!?
REMUS LUPIN
What creature!?
HARRY POTTER
A grindylow!
KINGSLEY SHACKLEBOLT
What gave you away?
HARRY POTTER
Hedwig. I think she was trying to protect me.
VERNON DURSLEY
This isn't just goodbye, boy, is it? This is farewell.
DUDLEY DURSLEY
I don't understand. Isn't he coming with us?
VERNON DURSLEY
Who?
DUDLEY DURSLEY
Harry.
VERNON DURSLEY
Absolutely not.
DUDLEY DURSLEY
Why?
VERNON DURSLEY
Why? [stammering] Because he doesn't want to. Do you, boy?
HARRY POTTER
Absolutely not, no. Besides, I'm just a waste of space. Isn't that right, Vernon?
VERNON DURSLEY
Come on Dudley. We're off.
DUDLEY DURSLEY
I don't think you're a waste of space.
HARRY POTTER
Thanks.
HARRY POTTER
[Smiles at Dudley] See you, Big D.
RON WEASLEY
[as Cattermole] Oh, my God. What am I gonna do? My wife's all alone downstairs.
HARRY POTTER
[as Runcorn] Ron, you don't have a wife.
RON WEASLEY
[as Cattermole] Oh, right.
YAXLEY
Cattermole. It's still raining inside my office. That's two days now.
BELLATRIX LESTRANGE
(Involving Hermione) The same won't be said for this one.
RON WEASLEY
Like hell! (Charges upstairs to strike at Bellatrix) Expelliarmus!
AUNT PETUNIA
I have lived in this house for twenty years, and now in a single night, I'm expected to leave.
HARRY POTTER
They'll torture you. If they think for a moment you know where I'm going, they'll stop at nothing.
AUNT PETUNIA
[Pause] You think I don't know what they're capable of? You didn't just lose a mother that night in Godric's Hollow, you know. I lost a sister. [leaves]

VERNON DURSLEY
Come on Dudley, hurry up!
DUDLEY DURSLEY
I still don't understand why we have to leave.
VERNON DURSLEY
Because, it's not safe for us here anymore.
