Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (2004)
Stan Shunpike: Welcome to the Knight Bus, emergency transport for the stranded witch or wizard. My name is Stan Shunpike and I will be your conductor this evening.

Stan Shunpike: What you doin' down there?
Harry: I fell over.
Stan Shunpike: What you fell over for?
Harry: I didn't do it on purpose.
Stan Shunpike: Well come on then! Let's not wait for the grass to grow!

Stan Shunpike: Take her away, Ern.
Shrunken Head: [With a Jamaican accent] Yeah, take it away, Ernie! Fasten your safety belts, clench your buttocks! It's going be a bumpy ride!

Stan Shunpike: What did you say your name was again?
Harry: I didn't.
Stan Shunpike: Well, whereabouts are you headed?
Harry: The Leaky Cauldron! That's in London.
Stan Shunpike: D'you hear that, Ern? The Leaky Cauldron, that's in London.
Shrunken Head: Ah, the Leaky Cauldron! If you have the pea soup, make sure you eat it before it eats you!

Harry: [in reference to Sirius Black on the front cover of the Daily Prophet] Who is that? That man?
Stan Shunpike: Who is that?... Who is... THAT is Sirius Black that is! Don't tell me you've never been hearing of Sirius Black?

Stan Shunpike: He's a murderer. Got himself locked up in Azkaban for it.
Harry: How did he escape?

Harry: Yeah... him I've heard of.

[while hurtling through London in the Knight Bus]
Harry: But the Muggles! Can't they see us?
Stan Shunpike: Muggles? They don't see nothing, do they?
Shrunken Head: No, but if you jab them with a fork, they feel it!
[laughs]

Stan Shunpike: [on the Knight Bus with Harry, who is looking around] Come on, come on, move on!
[clears throat, gives Harry a ticket, and knocks on the window next door]
Stan Shunpike: Take her away, Ern.
Shrunken Head: [next door] Yeah! Take it away, Ernie! It's going to be a bumpy ride!
[Ernie starts up the Knight Bus and drives it quite quickly while things slide back and forth]
Shrunken Head: Ha Ha Ha Ha!
