Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
(Scene 1: Harry Potter was born a wizard but after Voldemort, an evil wizard, kills his parents, he is raised by his relatives, the Dursleys, who treats him more like vermin than like a family member.)
Uncle Vernon: I'm warning you. If you don't control that 1)bloody bird, it'll have to go!
Harry: But she's bored. If I could only let her out... for an hour or two.
Uncle Vernon: Harumph. So you can send secret messages to your 2)freaking little friends? No, sir!
Harry: But I haven't had any messages from any of my friends. Not one - all summer.
Dudley: Who'd want to be friends with you?
Uncle Vernon: I should think you'd be a little more grateful. We've raised you since you were a baby, given you the food off our table, even let you have Dudley's second bedroom, purely out of the goodness of our hearts.
Aunt Petunia: Not now, Hopkins, not when the Masons arrive.
Uncle Vernon: ...which should be any minute! And, now, let's go over our schedule once again, shall we? Petunia, when the Masons arrive you will be...
Aunt Petunia: ...in the lounge, waiting to welcome them 3)graciously to our home.
Uncle Vernon: Good. And Dudley, you will be...
Dudley: I'll be waiting to open the door.
Uncle Vernon: Excellent! (Pause several seconds, to Harry, 4)menacing) And you?
Harry: I'll be in my bedroom, making no noise and pretending that I don't exist.
Uncle Vernon: Too right you will! With any luck this could well be the day I make the biggest deal in my career, and you will not 5)mess it up!
(Scene 2: When Harry enters his bedroom, the house elf Dobby is waiting for him who warns him that under no circumstances is he to return to Hogwarts, where a great danger is waiting for him.)
Dobby: (Jumping up and down on Harry's bed) Nah hah! Whoo hoo hoo! (Seeing Harry) Harry Potter! Such an honour it is!
Harry: Who are you?
Dobby: Dobby, sir. Dobby, the house elf.
Harry: Not to be rude or anything, but this isn't a great time for me to have a house elf in my bedroom.
Dobby: Oh. Oh, yes, sir. Dobby understands. It's just that, Dobby has come to tell you... it is difficult, sir... Dobby wonders where to begin.
Harry: Why don't you sit down.
Dobby: (Surprised) Sit down? Sit... sit down? Oooooh ho ho! (6)Wailing) Oooooh ho ho !
Harry: Dobby, please, I'm sorry, I didn't mean to offend you or anything.
Dobby: Offend Dobby!? Dobby has heard of your greatness, sir, but never has he been asked to sit down by a wizard, like an equal!
Harry: You can't have met many 7)decent wizards then.
Dobby: No! I haven't! It was an awful thing to say. (Stomping, pounding his head on the wall) Bad bobby! Bad bobby!
Harry: Dobby! Please Stop!
Dobby: Dobby had to punish himself, sir. Dobby almost 8)spoke ill of his family, sir.
Harry: Your family!
Dobby: The wizard family Dobby serves, sir. Dobby's bound to serve one family forever. If they ever knew Dobby was here... (shivery) oooo! But Dobby had to come. Dobby has to protect Harry Potter! To warn him! Harry Potter must not go back to Hogwart's School of 9)Witchcraft and 10)Wizardry this year. There is a plot; a plot to make the most terrible things happen!
Harry: What terrible things? Who's 11)plotting them?
Dobby: Ooh! Dare... can't ... say!
Harry: OK. I understand. You can't say.
Dobby: (Tearing sound) Erck! Ack! Aah...
(Scene 3: Harry meets the Malfoys in the Diagon Alley.)
Draco Malfoy: (Jealously) Bet you loved that, 12)didn't ya, Potter!? Famous Harry Potter! Can't even enter a bookstore without makin' the front page!
Ginny: Leave him alone!
Draco Malfoy: Alright, Potter, ya got yourself a girlfriend!
Lucius Malfoy: Now, Draco. Play nicely. (To Harry) Mr. Potter? (Introduce self) Lucius Malfoy. We meet at last. Forgive me, your scar is legend as, of course is the wizard who gave it to you.
Harry: Voldemort killed my parents. He was nothing more than a murderer!
Lucius Malfoy: Hmmm. You must be very brave to mention his name, or very foolish.
Hermione: Fear of a name only increases fear of the thing itself.
Lucius Malfoy: And you must be Miss Granger. Yes, Drake has told me all about you, and your parents... 13)Muggles, aren't they? (To Ron) Let me see. Red hair, 14)vacant expressions, 15)tatty, second-hand book... you must be at the Weasley's.
Arthur Weasley: Children! It's not in here! That side!
Lucius Malfoy: Where, where, where? Weasley senior.
Arthur Weasley: Lucius.
Lucius Malfoy: Busy time at the Ministry, Arthur -- those extra 16)raids. I do hope they paid you 17)overtime. But judging by the state of this, I'd say not. As for you, sir, a disgrace to the name of wizard. And they don't even pay you well for it?
Arthur Weasley: We have a very different idea about what disgraces the name of wizard, Malfoy.
Lucius Malfoy: Clever! Associating with Muggles! And I thought your family could sink no lower. I'll see you at work.
Draco Malfoy: (To Harry) See you at school.
(Scene 4: Mrs. Weasley sends Ron a Howler by owl.)
Neville: Bloody bird's a menace!
Ron: Oh, No!
Draco Malfoy: Look everyone. Weasley's got himself a Howler!
Colin: Go on Ron, I ignored one from my gramps, once. It was horrible!
Howler: (Mrs. Weasley yells) Wild Weasley! How dare you steal that car! I am absolutely disgusted! Your father's now facing an enquiry at work, and it's entirely your fault! If you put another toe out of line, we'll bring you straight home! (Sweetly) Oh, and Ginny, Dear. Congratulations on making Gryffindor. Your father and I are so proud!
(Ron sits stunned, and the Howler smashes itself into pieces.)
(Scene 5: In Hogwarts, strange things start to happen. People are becoming petrified, and no-one knows what is doing it. The students are told the story of the Chamber of Secrets.)
Professor McGonagall: Yes, Miss Granger?
Hermione: Professor, I was wondering if you could tell us about... the chamber of secrets.
Professor McGonagall: Very well. Now you all know, of course, that Hogwarts was founded over a thousand years ago by the four greatest witches and wizards of the age. Godrick Gryffindor, Helga Hufflepuff, Rowena Ravenclaw, and Salazar Slytherin. And three of the founders 18)coexisted quite 19)harmoniously. One did not.
Ron: Three guesses who.
Professor McGonagall: Salazar Slytherin wished to be more 20)selective about the students admitted to Hogwarts. He believed magical learning should be kept within all magic families; in other words, purebloods. Unable to sway the others, he decided to leave the school. Now, according to legend, Slytherin had built a hidden chamber in this castle known as the chamber of secrets. Though shortly before 21)departing, he sealed it, until that time when his own true 22)heir returned to the school. The heir, alone, would be able to open the chamber and 23)unleash the horror within and, by so doing, 24)purge the school of all those who, in Slytherin's view, were unworthy to study magic.
Professor McGonagall: Well, naturally, the school has been searched many times. No such chamber has been found.
Hermione: Professor, What exactly does legend tell us lies within the chamber?
Professor McGonagall: Well, the chamber is said to be home to something that only the heir of Slytherin can control. It is said to be the home of a 25)monster.
(Scene 6: An unordinary diary provides the clues for Harry and his friends to the chamber where Harry sees the deadly Ginny and Tom Marvolo Riddle, the diary's owner. Tom then tells Harry his secrets.)
Harry: Ginny! Oh, Ginny, please don't be dead! Wake up! Wake up! Please wake up.
Tom: She won't wake.
Harry: Tom!? Tom Riddle!? What do you mean she won’t wake?
Tom: She's not. She's still alive. But only just.
Harry: Are you the ghost?
Tom: Her memory preserved in a diary for fifty years.
Harry: She's cold as ice! Oh Ginny. Please don't be dead. Wake up. You've got to help me, Tom. This basilisk....
Tom: It won't come until it's called.
(Picking up Harry's wand on the ground.)
Harry: (Vigilantly) Give me my 26)wand, Tom.
Tom: You won't be needing it.
Harry: Listen, we've got to go. We've got to save her!
Tom: I'm afraid I can't do that, Harry. You see, as poor Ginny grows weaker, I grow stronger. Yes, Harry, it was Ginny Weasley who opened the chamber of secrets.
Harry: No, she couldn't. She wouldn't.
Tom: It was Ginny who set the basilisk on the 27)mudbloods and Filcher's cat. It was Ginny who wrote the threatening messages on the walls.
Tom: Because I told her to. You'll find I can be very... 28)persuasive. Not if Ginny knew what she was doing. She was, shall we say, in a kind of trance. Still the power of the diary began to scare her and she tried to 29)dispose of it in the girl's bathroom. And then, who should find it, but you... the very person I was most anxious to meet.
Harry: Why did you want to meet me?
Tom: I knew I had to talk to you; meet you if I could. So I decided to show you my capture of that 30)brainless old Hagrid to gain your trust.
Harry: Hagrid's my friend. And you 31)framed him, didn't you?
Tom: It was my word against Hagrid's. Only Dumbledor seemed to think he was innocent.
Harry: I bet Dumbledor saw right through you.
Tom: He certainly kept an annoyingly close watch on me after that. I knew it wouldn't be safe to open the chamber again when I was still at school, so I decided to leave behind a diary, preserving my sixteen year old self in its pages, so that one day I would be able to lead another to finish Salazar Slytherin's noble work.
Harry: Well, you haven't finished it this time. In a few hours, the 32)mandrake draft'll be ready and everyone who's 33)petrified will be alright together.
Tom: Haven't I told you? Killing mudbloods doesn't matter to me anymore. For many months now, my new target... has been you. 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: Voldemort is my past, present and future!
