Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire is a 2005 fantasy-adventure film, based on J. K. Rowling's novel of the same name. The film is the fourth installment in the Harry Potter film series, although 1492 Pictures decided to leave the series. The film was directed by Mike Newell and produced by David Heyman. The screenplay was penned by Steve Kloves. The film stars Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson as Harry Potter, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger respectively. The film is set during the trio's fourth year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. A highly dangerous competition, the Triwizard Tournament, is being held at Hogwarts with only one student from each of the three competing schools selected to take part, but mystery occurs when the Goblet of Fire chooses Harry Potter as a fourth competitor.

Filming began in early 2004 and the scenes of Hogwarts took place at the Leavesden Film Studios. Five days after its release, the film had grossed over US$102 million at the North American box office, the highest first-weekend tally for a Harry Potter film, and enjoyed an immensely successful run at the box office, earning over $895 million worldwide, making it the highest grossing film of 2005 and the 8th-highest grossing film of all time. It was the third highest grossing film in the U.S. for 2005 making $290 million. As of September 2009 it is the unadjusted 13th highest-grossing film of all time. As of September 2009 it is currently the fourth-highest grossing Harry Potter film, behind Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix and Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.

The film was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Art Direction, but lost to Memoirs of a Geisha. However, the film won BAFTA Award for Best Production Design making it the only Potter film to win a BAFTA award. This was also the first Harry Potter film to receive a PG-13 rating by the MPAA and a 12A by the BBFC or its international equivalents (for sequences of fantasy violence and frightening images), the preceding films and the following Half-Blood Prince film adaptation having been rated PG or its international equivalents. This was the second Harry Potter film to be released in IMAX theaters.



Harry Potter has a dream about an event while it takes place. He sees an elderly man investigate a light that is shining in the house he looks after and overhears Lord Voldemort making plans with Peter Pettigrew and another man that Harry does not recognize. The caretaker is caught and murdered by the Dark Lord. Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger express concern over Harry's dreams. The Quidditch World Cup allows Harry to take his mind off his nightmares. However, followers of Voldemort known as Death Eaters terrorise and destroy the spectators' campsites after the match.

At Hogwarts, headmaster Albus Dumbledore introduces a new teacher, a man known for his powerful magic and his all-seeing glass eye, the ex-auror Alastor "Mad-Eye" Moody. Harry, along with his classmates, notices Moody frequently drinking from a flask. Dumbledore also announces that the school will host the Triwizard Tournament, in which one wizard from each of the three magic schools competes in three difficult tasks. The champions are selected by the Goblet of Fire, a magical cup into which the names of candidates are placed. Cedric Diggory is chosen to represent Hogwarts, Quidditch champion Viktor Krum is chosen to represent Durmstrang Institute, and Fleur Delacour is selected to represent Beauxbatons Academy of Magic. The goblet unexpectedly chooses a fourth champion, Harry. As Harry is underage and therefore should have been ineligible to compete, Hogwarts teachers and fellow students alike are suspicious.

In their first Defense Against the Dark Arts lesson, the students learn of the three Unforgivable Curses. The Imperius Curse causes absence of free will, the Cruciatus Curse causes unbearable torture, and the final curse, Avada Kedavra, causes death.

In the first task, each of the four champions are instructed to retrieve a golden egg guarded by a dragon. Moody advises Harry about which talent he should use to overcome the dragon, and the two ultimately decide upon flying. Harry summons his broomstick and retrieves the egg, which contains information about the second challenge. In exchange for previous aid, Cedric Diggory provides him with a clue that prompts him to open the egg underwater. With help from Moaning Myrtle, he learns that the second task entails the retrieval of "something precious" to each of the competitors from mermaids in the nearby Black Lake. In last-minute preparation for the task, long-time friend Neville Longbottom provides Harry with Gillyweed, which allows him to breathe underwater. Harry is the first to arrive at the location, and finds Ron, Hermione, Cho Chang and Fleur's sister, Gabrielle Delacour, in suspended animation. Finishing last in an attempt to free all four at once, Harry is awarded second place for "outstanding moral fiber."

Following an exchange with Mad Eye Moody, Ministry official Barty Crouch appears confused and troubled. Harry finds him dead shortly after the second task. While waiting in Dumbledore's office, Harry's curiosity leads him to look into Dumbledore's pensieve, causing him to revisit one of Dumbledore's memories. He witnesses a trial before the Wizengamot (Wizard Court) in which captured Death Eater Igor Karkaroff, the current headmaster of Durmstrang, denounces a number of Death Eaters, including both Severus Snape and Barty Crouch Jr. While Dumbledore vouches for Snape's integrity, Crouch Sr. is horrified at this revelation and disowns his son, sending him to Azkaban. Upon returning to reality, Dumbledore tells Harry that he is searching his memories for a clue as to why extraordinary events have taken place at Hogwarts since the start of the Triwizard Tournament. While walking the halls Harry is confronted by Snape, who believes Harry has stolen the ingredients for Polyjuice Potion, by which a person can change their appearance.

In the Triwizard Cup's third and final task, the four competitors are placed inside a large hedge maze, the challenge being to reach the cup first. Viktor Krum, acting under the Imperius curse, incapacitates Delacour and attempts to do the same to Cedric. Harry stops Cedric from attacking Krum, and the two run for the cup. When Cedric is trapped by vines, Harry frees him and the two claim a draw and touch the cup together.

The Triwizard Cup transports the two champions to a graveyard where Peter Pettigrew and Voldemort are waiting for Harry. Peter Pettigrew kills Cedric and traps Harry. Pettigrew performs a ritual that rejuvenates Voldemort, who then summons the Death Eaters and bids them to witness a duel between their lord and his nemesis. As Harry repels Voldemort's killing curse, a connection called Priori Incantatem occurs between their wands. Harry's wand forces Voldemort's to disgorge the spirits of the people Voldemort has most recently killed, including Harry's parents and Cedric. Harry is briefly protected by the spirits and escapes with Cedric's body using the cup.

Upon his return, Harry tells Dumbledore and Minister for Magic Cornelius Fudge that Voldemort has returned and is responsible for Cedric's death. Moody leads Harry back to the castle, where his questions make Harry suspicious. Upon the arrival of Dumbledore, Snape and McGonagall, Moody transforms into Barty Crouch Jr.; the Polyjuice Potion he kept in his flask wears off. The real Alastor Moody has been kept prisoner in a trunk.

As the representatives from Durmstrang and Beauxbatons depart, Dumbledore exhorts them to stand together against Voldemort, telling them that "in light of the recent events, the bonds of friendship made this year will be more important than ever."


Jarvis Cocker, Phil Selway, Jonny Greenwood, Steve Mackey, Jason Buckle and Steven Claydon cameoed as the members of the Weird Sisters.


Differences from the book

With the Goblet of Fire novel almost twice the length of Prisoner of Azkaban, the writers and producers reduced certain scenes and concepts to make the transition from page to screen. Director Mike Newell described the problem as one of "compressing a huge book into the compass of a movie".[2] This was achieved by "putting aside" all the components of the novel which did not directly relate to Harry and his journey.[2] Even producer David Heyman admitted missing many of the scenes which were removed.[3]

Goblet of Fire is the first film adaptation to not begin at Privet Drive; after the opening sequence, Harry awakens at the Burrow on the morning of the Quidditch World Cup.[4] This makes Goblet of Fire the first film in the series in which the Dursleys do not appear. The game play at the Quidditch World Cup was removed for timing reasons, leaving an abrupt temporal jump which some reviewers considered awkward or "rushed". In the book, Harry and many of the Weasleys supported Ireland, who won despite Victor Krum catching the "snitch", while in the film Harry and Ron supported Bulgaria, who apparently won by a large margin in the film.[5] In the film, the caretaker that Voldemort murders is not identified. In the novel, he is Frank Bryce, and his past is connected to Voldemort's — he almost got the blame, in the Muggle world, for Voldemort's murder of his father and grandparents, as they lived in the house of which he was caretaker. In the book, the groundskeeper witnesses a conversation between just Voldemort and Wormtail, not Voldemort, Wormtail and Barty Crouch, Jr. Heyman regretted the removal of S.P.E.W., Hermione's Society for the Promotion of Elfish Welfare; this omission was continued in the following film. No house elves have dialogue in the film, although a few appear very briefly during the Quidditch World Cup sequence.[3] Other scenes are shortened and amalgamated to include only the most essential plot details; the three Death Eater trials Harry witnesses in the Pensieve are merged into one sequence, and all of Sirius Black's lines are condensed into a single fireside conversation.[4]


Box office

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire opened in the United Kingdom and United States on 18 November 2005, in Australia on 1 December, and a month later in 3,858 theatres including several IMAX theatres.

After an opening day of $40m at the North American box office and staying at #1 for three weeks, Goblet of Fire enjoyed a successful 20 week run in theatres, closing on 6 April 2006. The film set numerous records including the highest non-May opening weekend in the US and earned £14.9m in its opening weekend in the UK, a record which has since been beaten by the 2008 James Bond film, Quantum of Solace, which took in £15.4. Goblet of Fire drew $102.7 million its opening weekend at the North American box office, setting a new opening high for the franchise and selling about as many tickets as Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone did in its opening weekend. The debut marked the fourth $100 million weekend in history and as of July 2009 stands as the 12th largest opening weekend ever, behind The Dark Knight's $158.4 million, New Moon's $140 million, Spider-Man 3's $151 million, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest's $135 million, Shrek the Third's $121 million, Spider-Man's $114.8 million, Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End's $112 million, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen's $108.9 million, Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith's $108.4 million, Shrek 2's $108 million, and X-Men: The Last Stand's $102.8 million. In Mainland China the film generated 93 million yuan.[6]

Goblet of Fire earned almost US$896 million worldwide, making it the highest grossing international and worldwide release of 2005.

The film was also released in IMAX theatres and grossed a total of US $20,033,758 worldwide for a cumulative per screen average of $188,998 thus setting a new record and a new milestone for a digitally remastered 2-D IMAX release.[7]

In January 2006, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire surpassed the box office takings of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, to become the eighth highest-grossing film worldwide at the time, and the second highest-grossing film in the Harry Potter series, behind Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. As of July 2009 it is the fourth highest-grossing Harry Potter film behind The Philosopher's Stone, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix and Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.[citation needed]

The film ranks third in the North American box office (domestic) behind Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith and The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe for 2005 though both films rank lower than Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire in worldwide terms.[1]

Critical reception

The film received very favorable reviews from critics and as of July 2009 holds an 88% "Certified Fresh" approval rating overall and an 89% "Cream of the Crop" rating at Rotten Tomatoes.[8] Likewise at Metacritic, the film has the same score as The Prisoner of Azkaban, with both films receiving an 81 out of 100, which indicates "universal acclaim"; they are the most favourably reviewed Harry Potter films on the site. The New York Daily News praised the film for both its humour and its dark tone.[9] The young actors were praised for demonstrating a "greater range of subtle emotions",[10] particularly Daniel Radcliffe whom Variety described as delivering a "dimensional and nuanced performance".[11] New cast members were also praised: Brendan Gleeson's portrayal of Mad-Eye Moody was described as "colourful";[11] Miranda Richardson's scenes as Rita Skeeter were described as "wonderful";[9] and Ralph Fiennes's portrayal of Lord Voldemort was described as "sublime villainy".[12]

The maturity of Harry, Ron, and Hermione, among others, impressed most critics. While the major characters were portrayed as children in the previous films, "they have subtly transitioned into teenagers (in Goblet of Fire)" according to one USA Today reviewer. Harry has also physically matured since Prisoner of Azkaban. In the scene in the prefects' bathroom, Daniel Radcliffe's character is shown with significant axillary hair and muscle growth.

Negative criticism included the film's pace which The Arizona Republic described as being "far too episodic",[13] while described the film as "clunky and disjointed".[14] Another criticism was that the many supporting characters did not get enough screen time.[11][14] Some fans criticised the film for changing and leaving out too much of the source material, particularly those parts that developed character[15] and set-up events that occur later in the series.[16]

Home media

The film was released on DVD in North America on 7 March 2006. It was available in one- and two-disc editions, as well as part of an 8-disc box set that includes all four films to date.[17] The bonus disc features three interactive games, as well as seven behind the scenes featurettes. The film was also released in UMD format for PSP.

On its first day of release in North America, over 5 million copies were sold, recording a franchise high for first-day sales. Within its first week it sold over a total of 9 million units of combined sales of both the widescreen and full-screen versions of the DVD.[18]

The UK edition was released on DVD on 20 March 2006 and became the fastest selling UK DVD ever, selling six copies per second on its first day of release. According to the Official Charts Company, the DVD sold 1.4 million copies in its first week alone. It is also available in a two-disc edition with special features similar to the North American two-disc edition.[19][20]

The DVD currently holds the Guinness World Record for being the fastest selling DVD of all time. The achievement is added to the 2007 edition of The Guinness World Records book which includes a picture of the award being presented at Leavesden Film Studios in April.[21]

Warner Home Video announced the HD DVD edition of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire was to be released on 11 April 2006; however, due to the delayed release of Toshiba's HD DVD player, the HD DVD edition of Goblet of Fire was pushed back to 18 April 2006.[22] This deadline was also missed.

In the United States, the first five Harry Potter films were released on HD DVD and Blu-ray disc on 11 December 2007. They are available individually or in a gift set containing all five films and a set of collectible cards and bookmarks.[23] The Chinese DVD edition was released 2 weeks before the North American release as an effort to combat DVD piracy in China.

The Indian Version of the DVD was a two-disc special edition, which was released by Saregama home video on 7 April 2006.


The film was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Art Direction, but lost to Memoirs of a Geisha. At the 2006 Teen Choice Awards, the film won the award for Choice Movie Drama. The film won the BAFTA Award for Best Production Design, the only Potter film to win a BAFTA award as of July 2009.

At the 2006 Kids' Choice Awards, the film won the Blimp Award for Favorite Movie, becoming the first Harry Potter film to do so.

Wyrd Sisters lawsuit

In the run up to the film, Warner Bros. approached a Canadian folk group called the Wyrd Sisters to obtain permission to use the name THE WEIRD SISTERS for its Harry Potter Band. When a deal could not be made, the Canadian band filed a US$40-million lawsuit against Warner Brothers, the North American distributor of the film, as well as the members of the in-movie band (members of the bands Radiohead and Pulp, among others)[24] for the misuse of their group's name. The Canadian band also brought an injunction to stop the release of the film in its country as it contained a performance by the identically named fictional rock band. An Ontario judge dismissed this motion, and to avoid further controversy Warner Bros. rendered the band unnamed in the film and many derived products. However, the Winnipeg-based group continued to pursue the lawsuit; lead singer Kim Baryluk stated in her claim that “consumers will assume that the smaller and less famous Canadian band is trying to take advantage of the Harry Potter fame by copying the Harry Potter band’s name when in fact the reverse is true.”[25]

Harry Potter

  • I didn't put my name in that cup...I don't want eternal glory. I just want to be...
  • [Walks into the tent at the World Cup] I love magic.
  • [On attempting to ask girls out] Why do they have to travel in packs? And how are you supposed to get one alone long enough to ask them?
  • [To Voldemort] Have it your way.
  • [Dueling against Voldemort] Expelliarmus!
  • My eyes aren't glistening with the ghosts of my past!

Lord Voldemort

  • The Boy Who Lived. How lies have fed your legend, Harry! Shall I reveal what really happened that night thirteen years ago? Shall I divulge how I truly lost my powers? [Whispers] Yes, shall I? It was love. You see, when sweet, dear, Lily Potter gave her life for her only son, she provided 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 him... now... Astounding what a few drops of your blood will do eh, Harry?
  • Pick up your wand, Potter! You've been taught how to duel, I presume? First, we bow to each other. Come now, Harry. The niceties must be observed. Dumbledore wouldn't want you to forget your manners, would he? I said, bow!
  • Crucio!
  • I'm going to kill you, Harry Potter. I'm going to destroy you. After tonight, no one will ever again question my powers. After tonight, if they speak of your name, they'll speak only of how you begged for death, and I, being a merciful lord... obliged.
  • [when Harry hides behind a gravestone] 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!
  • Avada Kedavra!
  • [To the onlooking Death Eaters during Priori Incantatem] Do nothing! He's mine to finish! HE'S MINE!

Ron Weasley

  • (In the great hall speaking to the staff and students) Today...we acknowledge a really terrible loss... Cedric Diggory was as you all know, acceptionally hard-working, infinitely fair-minded, and a fierce, fierce friend. Now I believe you all have the right to know exactly how he died. (getting up) You see, Cedric Diggory was murdered! By Lord Voldemort! The ministry of magic, does not wish me to tell you this. But not doing so I think would be an insult to his memory. Now the pain we all feel, reminds me... reminds us. That though we may come from different places, and speak in different tongues. Our hearts beat as one. The bonds of friendship we made this year, will be more important than ever. You remember that, and Cedric Diggory would not have died in vain. You remember that, and we will celebrate a boy... who was kind, and honest, and fair, and true. Right to the very end.

[Professor Moody's first lesson]
Moody: Alastor Moody. [Writes his name on the board] Ex-Auror, Ministry malcontent...and your new Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher. I'm here because Dumbledore asked me. End of story, good-bye, the end. Any questions? [No one raises their hand] When it comes to the Dark Arts, I believe in a practical approach. But first, who can tell me how many Unforgivable Curses there are?
Hermione: Three, sir.
Moody: [Writes "Unforgiveable" on a blackboard] And they are so named?
Hermione: Because they are unforgivable. The use of any one of them will...
Moody: [finishing her sentence] Earn you a one-way ticket to Azkaban. Correct! The Ministry of Magic says you're 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! [Seamus takes some gum out and puts it under his desk] You need to find another place to put your chewing gum besides the under-side of your desk, Mr. Finnegan!
Seamus Finnegan: [Whispering] No way. The old codger can see in the back of his head.
Moody: [Throws the piece of chalk at Seamus] And hear across classrooms! Now, which curse shall we see first? WEASLEY!
Ron: Yes?!
Moody: Stand! Give us a curse.
Ron: Well, my dad did tell me about one. The Imperius Curse.
Moody: Oh, yeah. Your father would know all about that. Gave the Ministry a bit of grief a few years ago. Perhaps this will show you why.

[Moody has just finished his Imperius Curse demonstration on an enlarged spider by sending it flying around the classroom]
Moody: Scores of witches and wizards have claimed that they only did You-Know-Who's bidding...under the influence of the Imperius Curse. But here's the rub: How do we sort out the liars? Another, another. Longbottom, is it? Professor Sprout tells me you have an aptitude for Herbology.
Neville: [Nervously] There's the, um, the Cruciatus Curse.
Moody: Correct! Correct! Come. [the spider comes back] The Torture Curse. [Aims his wand at the spider] Crucio!
[The spider makes a terrifying squealing sound, seriously bothering Neville, who is watching it up close]
Hermione: Stop it! Can't you see it's bothering him? Stop it!
Moody: [Snaps back into reality; Walks over and places the spider on Hermione's desk] Perhaps you could give us the last Unforgivable curse, Miss Granger. [Hermione shakes her head] No? [Points his wand at the spider] Avada Kedavra! [The spider falls, dead. Harry is watching from a desk across.] The killing curse. [looks at Harry] Only one person is known to have survived it...and he's sitting in this room.

Madame Maxime: It's wrong, I tell you!
Igor Karkaroff: You French tart! Everything is a conspiracy theory with you!
Dumbledore: Quiet! I can't think!
Igor Karkaroff: Everything is a conspiracy theory!
Madame Maxime: I protest!
Dumbledore: Harry!
Madame Maxime: I protest!
Dumbledore: Harry. [Grabs him] Did you put your name in the Goblet of Fire?
Harry: No, sir.
Dumbledore: Did you ask one of the older students to do it for you?
Harry: No, sir.
Dumbledore: You're absolutely sure?
Harry: Yes. Yes, sir.
Madame Maxime: But of course he is lying!
Moody: The hell he is! The Goblet of Fire is an exceptionally powerful magical object. Only an exceptionally powerful Confundus Charm could have hoodwinked it. Magic way beyond the talents of a fourth-year!
Karkaroff: You seem to have given this a fair bit of thought, Mad-Eye!
Moody: It was once my job to think as dark wizards do, Karkaroff. Perhaps you remember?
Dumbledore: This doesn't help, Alastor! Leave this to you, Barty.
Barty Crouch, Sr.: The rules are absolute. The Goblet of Fire constitutes a binding magical contract. Mr. Potter has no choice. He is, as of tonight...a Triwizard champion.

Professor McGonagall: This can't go on, Albus. First the Dark Mark, now this?
Dumbledore: What do you suggest, Minerva?
Professor McGonagall: Put an end to it. Don't let Potter compete.
Dumbledore: You heard Barty. The rules are clear.
Professor McGonagall: Well, the devil with Barty. And his rules. And since when did you accomodate the Ministry?
Professor Snape: Headmaster, I too find it difficult to believe this mere coincidince. However, if we are to truly discover the meaning of these events, perhaps we should, for the time being...let them unfold.
Professor McGonagall: What? Do nothing? Offer him up as bait? Potter is a boy, not a piece of meat!
Dumbledore: I agree...with Severus. Alastor, keep an eye on Harry, will you?
Moody: I can do that.
Dumbledore: Don't let him know, though. He must be anxious enough as it is...knowing what lies ahead. Then again, we all are.

[Rita Skeeter is interviewing Harry in a broom cupboard.]
Rita Skeeter: This is cozy.
Harry: It's a broom cupboard.
Rita Skeeter: You should feel right at home then. [Forces Harry to a lower part of the cupboard] Don't mind if I use a Quick-Quotes Quill, do you?
Harry: Oh. Uh, no.
Rita Skeeter: So tell me, Harry. Here you sit, a mere boy of twelve--
Harry: I'm fourteen. Sorry.
Rita Skeeter: About to compete against three students, not only vastly more emotionally mature than yourself, but to have mastered spells you wouldn't attempt in your dizziest daydreams. Concerned?
Harry: I-I don't know. I haven't really thought about it. [looks at the quill, which is writing on its own]
Rita Skeeter: Just ignore the quill. Then, of course, you're no ordinary boy of twelve, are you?
Harry: [annoyed] Fourteen.
Rita Skeeter: Your story's legend. Do you think it was the trauma of your past that made you so keen to enter such a dangerous tournament?
Harry: I didn't enter.
Rita Skeeter: Of course you didn't. Everyone loves a rebel, Harry. [To the quill] Scratch that last part. [the quill obeys] Speaking of your parents, were they alive, how do you think they'd feel? Proud? Or concerned that your attitude shows, at best a pathological need for attention, at worst a psychotic death wish?
Harry: [looks at the quill's notes] Hey! My eyes aren't "glistening with the ghosts of my past"!

[Hermione is delivering a message from Ron to Harry, since neither boy is speaking to each other.]
Hermione: Ronald would like me to tell you that Seamus told him that Dean was told by Parvati that Hagrid is looking for you.
Harry: Is that right? can tell him...wait...what?
Hermione: [Goes back to Ron, talks to him quietly for a few seconds, then walks back] Dean was told by Parvati that...that...Please don't ask me to say it again! Hagrid is looking for you. [starts to walk away]
Harry: Well you can tell Ron-
Hermione: [furiously] I'M NOT AN OWL!

Draco Malfoy: Why so tense, Potter? My father and I have a bet, you see. I don't think you're gonna last ten minutes in the tournament...he disagrees. He thinks you won't last five! [laughs]
Harry: [enraged] I don't give a damn what your father thinks, Malfoy. He's vile, and cruel...and you're just pathetic.

[Moody has turned Draco Malfoy into a ferret for trying to curse Harry.]
Professor McGonagall: Professor Moody, what are you doing?
Moody: [Flipping the Malfoy-ferret in the air] Teaching.
Professor McGonagall: [shocked] Is that a...Is that a student?!
Moody: Technically, it's a ferret.

Malfoy: My father will hear about this!
Moody: Was that a threat?!
McGonnagall: Professor Moody--
Moody: Is that a threat?!
McGonnagall: Alastor!
Moody: I could tell you stories about your father that would curl even your greasy hair, boy!
McGonnagall: Alastor!

McGonnagall: Alastor! [Moody listens] We never use Tranfiguration as a punishment! Surely, Professor Dumbledore told you that.
Moody: Might've mentioned it.
McGonnagall: Well, you will do well to remember it.
[As McGonnagall walks away, Moody sticks his tongue out at her, behind her back.]

Ron: I reckon you'd have to be barking mad to put your name in the Goblet of Fire.
Harry: Caught on, have you? Took you long enough.
Ron: Well, I'm the not only who thought you'd done it. Everyone was saying it behind your back.
[Harry glares around the room; the others sheepishly avoid his eyes.]
Harry: [sarcastic] Brilliant. That makes me feel loads better.
Ron: Least I warned you about the dragons.
Harry: Hagrid warned me about the dragons.
Ron: No, no, no. I did. No, don't you remember? I told Hermione to tell you that Seamus told me that Parvati told Dean that Hagrid was looking for you, Seamus never actually told me anything, so it was really me all along. I thought we'd be all right, you know, after you'd figured that out.
Harry: [confused] ...Who? Who could possibly figure that out? That's completely mental.
Ron: Yeah. Isn't it? I suppose I was a bit distraught.
Hermione: Boys.

Professor McGonagall: The house of Godric Gryffindor has been a beacon in the wizarding world for nearly ten centuries, and I will not have you besmirching it in one night by acting like a bumbling, babbling band of baboons.
George/Fred: [to each other] Try saying that five times fast. [together] Bumbling, babbling band of baboons! Bumbling, babbling band of baboons! Bumbling... [Both walk off screen]

Professor McGonagall: [About the Yule Ball] Inside every girl, a secret swan slumbers, longing to burst forth and take flight.
Ron Weasley: [To Seamus] Something's about to burst out of Eloise Midgen, but I don't think it's a swan.

[Ron and Harry are dressed up for the Yule Ball; Harry has on much more flattering robes.]
Ron: What are those?! What are those?
Harry: My dress robes.
Ron: Well, they're all right! No lace, no dodgy little collar...
Harry: Well, I expect yours are more...traditional—
Ron Traditional?! They're ancient! I look like my great aunt Tessie. [sniffs clothing in armpit area] I smell like my great aunt Tessie!
[They look in the mirror]
Ron: Murder me, Harry.

Parvati: [Looking at Hermione] She looks beautiful!
Harry: [Looking at Cho] Yeah, she does... Wha- [Turns around and sees Hermione coming down the stairs. Noticing how beautiful she really looks, he smiles gently, agreeing with Parvati]

Boy from Durmstrang: [To Parvati] May I have your arm?
Parvati: [looks back at Harry then says to the boy] Arm? Leg? I'm yours! [goes to dance with him]

[Hermione is Krum's date at the Yule Ball; Ron is clearly jealous]
Ron: (Talking about Krum) He’s using you.
Hermione: How dare you! Besides, I can take care of myself.
Ron: Doubt it, he’s way too old.
Hermione: What? Is that what you think?
Ron: Yeah, that’s what I think!
Hermione: You know the solution then, don’t you?
Ron: Go on.
Hermione: Next time there’s a ball, pluck up the courage and ask me before somebody else does, and not as a last resort!
Ron: [backs away, knowing she's right] Well...that-that-that...that’s just completely off the point...Harry!
Hermione: Where have you been? Never mind. Off to bed, both of you!
[Harry looks at Ron]
Harry: What's wrong?
Ron: They get scary when they get older.
Hermione: Ron, you spoiled EVERYTHING!!

[Harry is in a memory of Dumbledore's using the pensieve]
Barty Crouch Sr.: Igor Karkaroff, you have been brought from Azkaban at your own request. Should your testament prove consequential we may be willing to order your eminent release. Until such time you will remain in the eyes of the Ministry convicted Death Eater. Do you accept these terms?
Igor Karkaroff: I do, sir.
Barty Crouch Sr.: What do you wish to offer?
Igor Karkaroff: I have names, sir. There was Rosier, Evan Rosier.
Barty Crouch Sr.: Rosier is dead.
Alastor Moody: [to Dumbledore] Took a piece of me with him.
Barty Crouch Sr.: Is that all you have to offer?
Igor Karkaroff: Wait! I have more! There was Rookwood.
Barty Crouch Sr.: Augustus Rookwood of the Department of Mysteries?
Igor Karkaroff: Yes, the same. He gave information to You-Know-Who from inside the Ministry itself.
Barty Crouch Sr.: Very well, the council will deliberate. Until such time you will return to Azakaban.
Igor Karkaroff: Wait, wait. I have more. What about Snape, Severus Snape?
Dumbledore: I have given evidence on this matter. Snape was indeed a Death Eater prior to Lord Voldemort's downfall turned spy gave a great personal risk. Today he's no more a Death Eater than I am.
Igor Karkaroff: Lies! He is still faithful to the Dark Lord.
Barty Crouch Sr.: Order! Unless the witness has any genuine name of consequents, this section is now concluded.
[Barty Crouch Junior stands up and starts to leave]
Igor Karkaroff: Oh, no, no. I heard one more. I know for sure that this man took part in the torture by use of the Cruciatus curse of the Auror Frank Longbottom and his wife.
Barty Crouch Sr.: The name. Give me the wrenched name!
Igor Karkaroff: Barty Crouch! [Gasps from the crowd, Karkaroff pauses for effect] Junior.
[Barty Crouch Jr. tries to escape but is attacked by a spell used by Alastor Moody]
Barty Crouch Jr.: Get off of me, you pathetic little men! [He is brought before his father] Hello, father. [flicks his tongue]
Barty Crouch Sr.: You're no son of mine.

Professor Snape: A rather rare herb, gillyweed. Not something found in your everyday garden. Nor is this. [He faces Harry and holds up a small bottle of a clear liquid] Know what it is?
Harry: Bubble juice, sir?
Professor Snape: Veritaserum. Three drops of this and You-Know-Who himself would spill his darkest secrets. The use of it in a student is, regrettably, forbidden. However, should you ever steal from my personal stores again my hand might just slip over your morning pumpkin juice.
Harry: I haven't stolen anything.
Professor Snape: Don't lie to me. Gillyweed may be innocuous, but boomslang skin, lacewing flies? You and your little friends are brewing Polyjuice Potion, and believe me I'm going to find out why!

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 stands and faces Voldemort]
Harry: Have it your way. Expelliarmus!
Voldemort: (at the exact same moment) Avada Kedavra!

Barty Crouch Jr.: I'll be welcomed back like a hero!
Dumbledore: Perhaps! Personally I've never had much time for heroes.

(In the Gryffindor Dormitory)
Dumbledore: (knocks on the door and walks in speaking to Harry alone) I never liked these curtains. I set them on fire in my fourth year. On accident, of course. Harry, I put you through a lot of danger this year. I'm sorry.
Harry: the graveyard there was a moment when my wand...and Voldemort's wand sort of...connected-
Dumbledore: Priori Incantatum....You saw your parents that night didn't you, Harry? They appeared to you. (Harry nods, smiling) No spell can awaken the dead, Harry. I trust you know that. (Harry nods slowly, somewhat disappointed) Good boy. Dark times lie ahead. Soon we must all face the choice, between what is right....and what is easy. But you have friends here...and a home. You're not alone.
