Bellatrix Lestrange: [Try to help Voldemort up] My Lord? My Lord?

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 (2010)
Lord Voldemort: Where will he be taken, the boy?
Severus Snape: To a safe house. Most likely the home of someone in the Order. I've been told he's been given every mannerr of protection possible. Once there, it will be impractical to attack him.

Lucius Malfoy: My Lord?
Lord Voldemort: [Mockingly] My Lord?

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.

Bellatrix Lestrange: [clears throat] My Lord, I'd like to volunteer for this task. I want to kill the boy.
[a scream from the cellar interrupts them]
Lord Voldemort: Wormtail! Have I not spoken to you about keeping our guest quiet?
Wormtail: Yes, my Lord. Right away, my Lord.
[Wormtail scuttles out]
Lord Voldemort: As inspiring as I find your bloodlust Bellatrix, I must be the one to kill Harry Potter.

Lord Voldemort: What say you, Pius?
Pius Thicknesse: One hears many things, my Lord. Which among them is the truth is not clear.
Lord Voldemort: Ha! Spoken like a true politician. You will, I think, prove most useful, Pius.

Lord Voldemort: To those of you who do not know: we are joined tonight by Ms. Charity Burbage, who until recently taught at Hogwarts School Of Witchcraft And Wizardry. Her speciality was Muggle Studies. It is Ms. Burbage's belief that Muggles are not so different from us. She would, given her way, have us... mate with them.
Bellatrix Lestrange: Blech!

Lord Voldemort: I have seen your heart, and it is mine.

Charity Burbage: [crying and pleading] Severus, please! We were friends...
Lord Voldemort: [Snape stares blankly at her. Voldemort raises his wand] Avada Kedavra!
Lord Voldemort: [Charity's body crashes onto the table. Voldemort caresses Nagini as she slithers across the table] Nagini... dinner.

Lord Voldemort: [voiceover as Tom Riddle] I have seen your heart and it's mine. I have seen your dreams, Ronald Weasley, and I have seen your fears...
Harry Potter: Ron! Don't listen to it!
Lord Voldemort: [voiceover as Tom Riddle] Least loved by the mother who craved a daughter. Least loved, by the girl who prefers your friend...
Harry Potter: Ron! Stab it!
Harry Potter: [as Riddle-Harry] We were better without you, happier without you.
Hermione Granger: [as Riddle-Hermione] Who could look at you beside Harry Potter? What are you, compared to the Chosen One...?
Harry Potter: Ron! It lies! Stab it! STAB IT!
Harry Potter: [as Riddle-Harry] Your mother confessed that she would have preferred me as a son...
Hermione Granger: [as Riddle-Hermione] Who wouldn't prefer him? What woman would take you? You are nothing... nothing... nothing to him...
[Riddle-Hermione and Riddle-Harry starts to kiss in the fog. Ron looks shocked. Ron's head turns to Harry, who freezes. A trace of scarlet glints in Ron's eyes]
Ron Weasley: NOOO!
[Ron raises the sword, stabs it through Riddle-Harry and Riddle-Hermione, and then reaches the locket, and then there's silence]

Lord Voldemort: [from trailer] I will be the one to kill Harry Potter.

Lord Voldemort: [from trailer] I must be the one to kill Harry Potter.

Lord Voldemort: [from trailer] I have seen more... and he is mine.


Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005)
Voldemort: The Boy-Who-Lived. How lies have fed your legend, Harry! Do you want to know what really happened thirteen years ago? Shall I divulge how I truly lost my powers? It was love. You see, when dear sweet Lily Potter gave her life for her only son, it provided him with the ultimate protection, I could not touch him. It was old magic, something I should have foreseen. But no matter, no matter, things have changed. I CAN TOUCH YOU... NOW!
[He places the pad of his finger on Harry's scar, and Harry immediately screams out in agony]
Voldemort: Astounding what a few drops of your blood will do, eh, Harry?

Harry: [after being Portkeyed away from the maze during the Third Task Harry suddenly realizes where they are] Cedric, we have to get back to the cup. NOW.
Cedric Diggory: What are you talking about?
Harry: [Flames burst beneath a huge stone cauldron as the door to a nearby house opens, revealing someone carrying a blanket-wrapped bundle. Harry drops to his knees, clutching his scar in agony] AAAAAGH!
Cedric Diggory: Harry, what is it?
Harry: Get back to the cup!
Cedric Diggory: [Cedric stands up, wand at the ready to defend both himself and Harry] Who are you, what do you want?
Voldemort: Kill the spare!
Peter Pettigrew: AVADA KEDAVRA!
Harry: NO! CEDRIC!
[Harry can only watch as Cedric is blasted off his feet and hits the ground behind him, dead]

Voldemort: Harry! I'd almost forgotten you were here, standing on the bones of my father. I'd introduce you, but rumor has it you're almost as famous as me these days.

Voldemort: [looking at Cedric's body] Awww, tsk, tsk, tsk...
[nudges Cedric's face with his foot]
Voldemort: Such a handsome boy.
Harry: Don't touch him!

Voldemort: Don't you turn your back on me, Harry Potter! I want you to look at me when I kill you! I want to see the light leave your eyes!
Harry: [facing Voldemort] Have it your way!
Voldemort, Harry: [both shouting together] Avada Kedavara!/Expelliarmus!

Voldemort: My wand, Wormtail.

Voldemort: I'm going to kill you, Harry Potter. I'm going to destroy you. After tonight, no one will ever again question my power. After tonight if they speak of you, they'll only speak of how you begged for death. And how I being a merciful Lord... obliged.

Voldemort: Nagini tells me that the old Muggle caretaker is standing right outside the door. Step aside, Wormtail, so that I can give our guest a proper greeting. Avada Kedavra!

Voldemort: You've been taught how to duel, I presume? First we bow to each other
[Voldemort bows, Harry does not]
Voldemort: Come now, Harry, the niceties must be observed. Dumbledore would not want you to forget your manners. I said, "Bow."
[uses a curse to make Harry bow]

Voldemort: [after the Death Eaters have Apparated to the graveyard] Welcome, my friends. Thirteen years it's been, and yet, here you stand as if it were only yesterday. I confess myself... disappointed. Not one of you tried to find me...
[running around and angrily ripping masks off several followers]
Voldemort: Crabbe! Macnair! Goyle! Not even you, Lucius.
Lucius Malfoy: [sinking to the ground] My Lord, had I detected any sign... a whisper of your whereabouts...
Voldemort: Oh there were signs, my slippery friend, and more than whispers.
Lucius Malfoy: I assure you, my Lord, I have never renounced the old ways. The face I have been obliged to present since your... absence...
[removes his hood]
Lucius Malfoy: That is my true mask.


Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (2002)
Tom Marvolo Riddle: Funny, the damage a silly little book can do, especially in the hands of a silly little girl.

Tom Marvolo Riddle: How is it that a baby 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 Marvolo Riddle: Voldemort is my past, present, and future.

[to Tom Riddle]
Harry: [smiling] I bet Dumbledore saw right through you.
Tom Marvolo Riddle: He certainly kept an annoyingly close watch on me after that!
[walks around Harry]
Tom Marvolo Riddle: I knew it wouldn't be safe to open the Chamber again while I was still at school so I decided to leave behind a Diary, preserving by 16-year old self in its pages so that ond day, I would be able to lead another to finish Salazar Slytherin's noble work!

Harry: You. You're the Heir of Slytherin. You're Voldemort.
Tom Marvolo 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 Marvolo Riddle: Dumbledore's been driven out of this castle by the mere memory of me!

Tom Marvolo Riddle: So this is what Dumbledore sends his great defender. A songbird and an old hat.

Tom Marvolo Riddle: Let's match the power of Lord Voldemort, Heir of Salazar Slytherin, against the famous Harry Potter.

Tom Marvolo Riddle: Haven't I told you? Killing Mudbloods doesn't matter to me any more. For many months now, my new target has been you.

Harry: [writing inside Tom Riddle's diary] My name is Harry Potter.
[the words disappear, then other words appear in the diary]
Tom Marvolo Riddle: Hello, Harry Potter, my name is Tom Riddle.
Harry: [writing] Do you know anything about the Chamber of Secrets?
Tom Marvolo Riddle: [word appears] Yes...
Harry: Can you tell me?
Tom Marvolo Riddle: No...
[Harry sighs in frustration, but then sees the next words, and get excited]
Tom Marvolo Riddle: But I can show you... Let me take you back 50 years ago... 13th June.
[the pages turn to this date, then Harry is swept inside the diary]

[Tom watches wizards carry a dead student away]
Dumbledore: Riddle. Come.
Tom Marvolo Riddle: [looks upstairs and sees Dumbledore, who is fifty years younger] Professor Dumbledore.
Harry: Dumbledore?
Dumbledore: It is not wise to be wandering around this late hour, Tom.
Tom Marvolo Riddle: Yes, Professor. I suppose I-I had to see for myself if the rumors were true.
Dumbledore: I'm afraid they are, Tom. They are true.
Tom Marvolo Riddle: About the school, as well? I don't have a home to go to. They wouldn't really close Hogwarts, would they, Professor?
Dumbledore: I understand, Tom. But, I'm afraid Headmaster Dippet may have no choice.
Tom Marvolo Riddle: Sir, if it all stopped. If the person responsible was caught...
Dumbledore: Is there something you wish to tell me?
Tom Marvolo Riddle: No, sir. Nothing.
Dumbledore: [he examines Riddle, but then shrugs it off] Very well, then. Off you go.
Tom Marvolo Riddle: Goodnight, sir.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (2009)
Mrs. Cole: I must admit to some confusion receiving your letter, Professor Dumbledore. In all the years Tom's been here, he's never once had a family visitor. There have been... incidents with the other children. Nasty things.
[opens the door]
Mrs. Cole: Tom? You have a visitor.
Albus Dumbledore: How do you do, Tom?
Tom Riddle - Age 11: [without turning around] Go.
[cut to a short time later, as Dumbledore sits opposite Tom]
Tom Riddle - Age 11: You're the doctor, aren't you?
Albus Dumbledore: No, I'm a professor.
Tom Riddle - Age 11: I don't believe you. She wants me looked at. They think I'm... different.
Albus Dumbledore: Well, perhaps they're right.
Tom Riddle - Age 11: I'm not mad.
Albus Dumbledore: Hogwarts is not a place for mad people. Hogwarts is a school. A school of magic. You can do things can't you, Tom? That other children can't.
Tom Riddle - Age 11: I can make things move without touching them. I can make animals do what I want without training them. I can make bad things happen to people who are mean to me. I can make them hurt, if I want... Who are you?
Albus Dumbledore: Well, I'm like you, Tom. I'm different.
Tom Riddle - Age 11: Prove it.
[Dumbledore turns and looks at the wardrobe, which bursts into flames. Something rattles on the inside]
Albus Dumbledore: I think there's something in the wardrobe trying to get out, Tom.
[Tom opens the wardrobe, and dumps out the contents]
Albus Dumbledore: Thievery is not tolerated at Hogwarts, Tom. At Hogwarts you will be taught not only how to use magic, but how to control it. Do you understand me?
[Dumbledore starts to leave]
Tom Riddle - Age 11: I can speak to snakes, too. They find me... whisper things.
[Dumbledore stops, looking surprised]
Tom Riddle - Age 11: Is that normal, for someone like me?

Tom Riddle - Age 16: Intuition.
