Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 (2011)
Ginny Weasley: [Harry, Ron, Hermione, and Neville have entered the Room of Requirement] Harry!
Harry Potter: Hi there.
[pauses waiting for a response from Ginny, then addresses Hermione]
Ron Weasley: Six months she hadn't see me, it's like I'm a Frankie First Year. I'm only her brother...
Seamus Finnigan: She's got lots of them, but there's only one Harry.
Ron Weasley: Shut up Seamus.

Neville Longbottom: It doesn't matter that Harry's gone.
Seamus Finnigan: Stand down Neville!
Neville Longbottom: People die every day. Friends, family. Yeah, we still lost Harry tonight. He's still with us, in here.
[Points to his heart]
Neville Longbottom: So's Fred, Remus, Tonks... they didn't die in vain. But YOU will. 'Cause you're wrong! Harry's heart did beat for us! For all of us! It's not over!
[He pulls the Sword of Gryffindor from the Sorting Hat]
Harry Potter: [Harry suddenly drops from Hagrid's arms and aims at Nagini] Confringo!
Bellatrix Lestrange: [In the sudden confusion, scores of Death Eaters begin to apparate away from Hogwarts] No! No, come back! Lucius! Come back! Come back and fight!
Harry Potter: I'll lure him into the castle. We have to kill the snake.

Neville Longbottom: Right then, so what's the plan Harry?
Harry Potter: Okay, there's something we need to find, something hidden here in the castle, and it may help us defeat You-Know-Who.
Neville Longbottom: Right, what is it?
Harry Potter: We don't know.
Dean Thomas: Where is it?
Harry Potter: We don't know that either. I realise that's not much to go on.
Seamus Finnigan: That's nothing to go on.

Minerva McGonagall: Why don't you confer with Mr. Finnigan? As I recall, he has a particular proclivity for pyrotechnics.
Seamus Finnigan: I can bring it down!
Minerva McGonagall: That's the spirit, now away you go.

Neville Longbottom: It doesn't matter that Harry's gone.
Seamus Finnigan: Stand down, Neville.
Neville Longbottom: People die everyday! Friends, family. Yeah, we lost Harry tonight. He's still with us, in here. So's Fred, Remus, Tonks, all of them. They didn't die in vain. But you will! Because you're wrong! Harry's heart did beat for us, for all of us. It's not over!


Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (2001)
Seamus Finnigan: I'm half and half. Me dad's a muggle; Mam's a witch. Bit of a nasty shock for him when he found out.

Seamus Finnigan: Eye of rabbit, harp string hum, turn this water into rum.
[he checks the goblet, then tries again]
Seamus Finnigan: Eye of rabbit, harp string hum...
Harry: What's Seamus trying to do to that glass of water?
Ron: Turn it to rum. Actually managed a weak tea yesterday! Before...
[explosion]

Seamus Finnigan: [in Charms class] Wingardium Leviosa. Wingard...
[BOOM]
Harry: [to Professor Flitwick] I think we're going to need another feather over here, Professor.

[deleted scene]
Ron: [Neville comes hopping in, his legs apparently stuck together] Leg-Locker Curse?
Harry: Malfoy.
Ron: You have *got* to start standing up to people, Neville.
Neville Longbottom: [wobbling uncontrollably] How? I can barely stand at all!
Seamus Finnigan: [jumping up, wand at the ready] I'll do the counter-curse!
Neville Longbottom: No, that's all I need... you to set my bloody kneecaps on fire!
Seamus Finnigan: [slamming his wand down] I don't appreciate the insinuation, Longbottom. Besides, if anyone cares to notice, my eyebrows have completely grown back!
[stalks off angrily, showing a large chunk of hair missing from the back of his head]
Harry: I found him!
[hands Ron a Chocolate Frog card of Dumbledore]
Ron: 'Dumbledore is particularly famous for his defeat of the Dark Wizard Grindelwald in 1945-'
Harry: Go on.
Ron: '-for his discovery of the 12 uses of Dragon Blood, and his work on alchemy with his partner Nicolas Flamel!'
Harry: I knew the name sounded familiar, I read it on the train that day.
Hermione: [Beaming excitedly] Follow me!
[the Trio tears out of the Great Hall, leaving poor Neville still flailing around]
Neville Longbottom: Hey, wait, where are you going? What about the counter-curse?
[Before he can say another word he topples over backwards, sparking a fresh round of laughter from the other students]


Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005)
Professor Moody: Alastor Moody. Ex-Auror, Ministry malcontent, and your new Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher. I am here because Dumbledore asked me. End of story, goodbye, the end! Any questions? When it comes to the Dark Arts I believe in a practical approach. But first, which of you can tell me how many Unforgivable Curses there are?
Hermione: Three, sir.
Professor Moody: And they are so named?
Hermione: Because they are unforgivable. The use of any one of them will...
Professor Moody: Earn you a one-way ticket to Azkaban. Correct. The Ministry says you are too young to see what these curses do. I say different! You need to know what you're up against. You need to be prepared...
[as he turns to the blackboard again, Seamus ducks under his desk]
Professor Moody: You need to find another place to put your chewing gum besides the underside of your desk, Mr. Finnegan!
Seamus: [whispering] No way, the old codger can see out of the back of his head!
Professor Moody: [throws a piece of chalk at him] And hear across classrooms!

Seamus: It's not like I *try* to blow things up, exactly, it just sorta happens. You gotta admit though, fire is fascinating.

[Moody takes a drink from his flask]
Seamus: What do you suppose he's got there?
Harry: I don't know, but I don't think it's pumpkin juice.

Seamus: Blimey! That's one big woman.


Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (2004)
Seamus Finnegan: [standing in front of the Fat Lady] She won't let me in! She just won't!

[the Fat Lady has finally let them into Gryffindor Tower; both Harry and Seamus are talking at the same time]
Harry: She's still doing it, after three years, I mean...
Seamus Finnegan: I can't believe she still does that...
Harry, Seamus Finnegan: [together] She can't even sing!


Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (2007)
Seamus Finnigan: Me mam didn't want me to come back this year.
Harry Potter: Why not?
Seamus Finnigan: [sarcastically] Let me see... because of you! The Daily Prophet's been saying a lot of things about you, Harry. About Dumbledore as well.
Harry Potter: And your mum believes them?
Seamus Finnigan: Well, no one was there the night Cedric died.
Harry Potter: Oh, well I guess you should read the Prophet then, like your stupid mother. It'll tell you everything you need to know.
Seamus Finnigan: Don't you dare talk about my mother like that!
Harry Potter: I'll have a go at anyone who calls me a liar!

Seamus Finnigan: [in the grand hall] Harry! I... uh... I wanted to apologize. I know with everything me mam is saying in the Prophet is all very druddle. So, what I'm really trying to say is that... I believe you.


Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (2002)
Prof. Sprout: Oh, Longbottom's been neglecting his earmuffs.
Seamus Finnigan: No, ma'am, he's just fainted.
Prof. Sprout: [pauses and sighs] Yes, well, just leave him there.
