Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (2009)
Horace Slughorn: What about you, Miss Granger? What do your parents do in the muggle world?
Hermione Granger: Ah, my parents are dentists.
Horace Slughorn: And is that considered a dangerous profession?

Horace Slughorn: [showing Harry pictures] I taught the whole Black family, except Sirius, it's a shame. I got Regulus when he came around of course, but I would have liked the set.

Horace Slughorn: [talking to Harry about his fish] It was a student who gave me Francis. One Spring afternoon I discovered a bowl on my desk, just a few inches of clear water in it. Floating on the surface was a flower petal. As I washed, it sank. Just when it reached the bottom, it transformed into a wee fish. It was beautiful magic, wondrous to the behold. The flower petal had come from a lily, your mother. The day I came downstairs, the day the bowl was empty, was the day your mother...

Horace Slughorn: [shocked] Harry!
Harry Potter: [imitating Slughorn and hyper from the Felix potion] Sir!

Horace Slughorn: Thank you for the pineapple, you're quite right, it is my favorite - but how did you know?
Tom Riddle - Age 16: Intuition.

Horace Slughorn: [in regard to returning to Hogwarts] All right, I'll do it! But I want Professor Merrythought's office, not that water closet I had before. And I want a raise, these are mad times we live in. MAD!

Horace Slughorn: Harry! I must insist you accompany me back to the castle immediately!
Harry Potter: That would be counterproductive, sir!
Horace Slughorn: What makes you say that?
Harry Potter: No idea!

Horace Slughorn: Exactly how did you get out of the castle, Harry?
Harry Potter: Through the front door sir.

Horace Slughorn: [during Aragog's funeral] Farewell, Aragog. King of the arachnids. Your body will decay... but your spirit lingers on and your human friends find solace, the loss they have sustained.

Rubeus Hagrid: [talking about Aragog] I had him from an egg, you know? Tiny little thing he was when he hatched. No bigger than a Pekingese. A Pekingese, mind you!
Horace Slughorn: How sweet! I once had a fish... Francis. He was very dear to me. One afternoon, I came downstairs and... it vanished. Poof.
Rubeus Hagrid: That's very odd, isn't it?
Horace Slughorn: Yes, doesn't it? But that's life! I suppose, you - you go along with and suddenly... poof.
Rubeus Hagrid: Poof.
Harry Potter: Poof.

Horace Slughorn: I would have thought an expert potion-maker like yourself could whip up an antidote for a love potion in no time, Harry?
Harry Potter: Well, sir, I think this called for a more practiced hand.
Ron Weasley: [throws his arms around Slughorn] Hello, darling. Fancy a drink?
Horace Slughorn: Perhaps you're right.

[after exposing Slughorn's disguise]
Albus Dumbledore: I must say, Horace, you make a very convincing armchair.
Horace Slughorn: Oh, thank you. It's all in the upholstry.
[pats his stomach]
Horace Slughorn: I come about the stuffing naturally.

[Slughorn is snipping tentacular leaves through a window in the greenhouse; Harry, who is walking by, notices Slughorn and walks up behind him. Slughorn is startled]
Horace Slughorn: Aaauughh!... Merlin's beard, Harry!
Harry Potter: Oh, sorry, sir, I should've announced myself. Cleared my throat. Coughed. You probably feared I was Professor Sprout!
Horace Slughorn: Yes, I did actually!... What made you think that?
Harry Potter: Oh, well, just the general behavior, sir - the sneaking around, jumping when you saw me... Are those tentacular leaves, sir? They're very valuable, aren't they?
Horace Slughorn: Ten Galleons a leaf to the right buyer!... Not that I'm familiar with any such back alley transactions, but one does hear rumors. My own interests are purely academic, of course.
Harry Potter: Personally, these plants always kind of freak me out.

Harry Potter: What brings you here, sir?
Horace Slughorn: [good-naturedly/drunkenly] Oh, the Three Broomsticks and I go way back! Farther back than I care to admit! Ho ho ho... Why I can remember when it was just ONE Broomstick!
[Slughorn chuckles and spills his drink all over the table, splashing Hermione; she jumps away]
Horace Slughorn: Whoops! All hands on deck, there, Granger!

[Harry persuades Slughorn to hand over his true memory]
Horace Slughorn: Please don't think badly of me when you see it. You have no idea what he was like... even back then.

Ron Weasley: [he puts his arms around Professor Slughorn thinking he is Romilda Vane] Hello darling fancy a drink?
Horace Slughorn: Perhaps you're right Harry.

Harry Potter: [Harry knocks on the door of Professor Slughorn's room] I'm sorry, sir. I wouldn't bother you if it weren't essential.
Ron Weasley: Where's Romilda?
Horace Slughorn: What's the matter with Wenby?
Harry Potter: [Whispers] Very powerful love potion.
Horace Slughorn: Very well. Better bring him in. I'd have thought you could have whipped up a remedy for this in no time, Harry.
Harry Potter: I'd have thought that this called for a more practised hand, sir.
Ron Weasley: [Ron wraps his arms around Professor Slughorn and looks at him romantically] Hello Darling. Fancy a drink?
Horace Slughorn: Perhaps you're right.

Horace Slughorn: [from trailer]
[to class]
Horace Slughorn: What you see here before you is a curious little potion. It does cause infatuation or obsession.

Horace Slughorn: [from trailer] Now get out of here at once!

Horace Slughorn: [from trailer] These are mad times we live in! Mad!

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 (2011)
Flitwick, Molly Weasley, Professor Horace Slughorn: Protego Maxima, Fianto Duri, Repello Inimicum.

Hermione Granger: [the Trio walks through the courtyard] Where is everybody?
[They open the doors to the Great Hall. It is a total wreck, lined with students, teachers, the injured, and the dead. Ron walks in first, followed by Hermione, then Harry, who passes everyone almost as if he is in a daze, unable to comprehend what is going on around him]
Professor Horace Slughorn: [Applying Dittany to a wound on Filch's arm] Harry...
Professor Pomona Sprout: [Dealing with a student's wound] Oh come on, what's the matter with you?
Professor Sybil Trelawney: [Sitting next to Padma Patil and pulling a sheet over a teacher's body] Oh, she's passed.
Padma Patil: There, she's gone.
Ron Weasley: [the next sight stops Harry dead in his tracks. The Weasley family are gathered around the body of Fred. Ginny and Percy both stand motionless. Bill holds a crying Fleur. Molly's head is buried on her dead son's shoulder. Arthur is trying to comfort George as best he can. George sees Ron and grabs onto him for dear life, sobbing uncontrollably. Ron kneels over Fred's body and lays his head down on his chest as Molly gently strokes both of their heads] No! No! NO!
[Stunned, Harry glances to his left and sees the body of Remus and Tonks]
