Albus Dumbledore: You heard Barty. The rules are clear.

Minerva McGonagall: Well, the devil with Barty and his rules. And since when did you accommodate the Ministry?

Hermione Granger: Professor... I was wondering if you could tell us about the Chamber of Secrets.

Minerva McGonagall: Very well. You all know, of course... that Hogwarts was founded over a thousand years ago... by the four greatest witches and wizards of the age: Godric Gryffindor, Helga Hufflepuff... Rowena Ravenclaw and Salazar Slytherin. Now, three of the founders coexisted quite harmoniously. One did not.

Ron Weasley (to Harry): Three guesses who.

Minerva McGonagall: Salazar Slytherin wished to be more selective... about the students admitted to Hogwarts. He believed magical learning should be kept within all-magic families. In other words, pure-bloods. 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 departing, he sealed it... until that time when his own true Heir returned to the school. The Heir alone... would be able to open the Chamber... and unleash the horror within, and by so doing... purge the school of all those who... in Slytherin's view, were unworthy to study magic.

Hermione Granger: Muggle-borns.

Minerva McGonagall: Well. Naturally, the school has been searched many times. No such chamber has been found.

Hermione Granger: Professor? What exactly does legend tell us lies within the Chamber?

Minerva McGonagall: 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 monster.

Minerva McGonagall: Perhaps, it'd be more useful if I were to transfigure Mr. Potter and yourself into a pocket-watch. That way, one of you might be on time.

Albus Dumbledore: Exactly. He's far better off growing up away from all of that. Until he's ready.

Minerva McGonagall: Do you think it wise to trust Hagrid with something as important as this?

Albus Dumbledore: Ah, Professor, I would trust Hagrid with my life.

Professor McGonagall: Bravery doesn’t forgive stupidity.

Draco Malfoy: Sorry about your floor, Minerva.

Professor McGonagall: I dare say it’s my fault for owning a chimney.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Quotes

It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn’t much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband and father of three school-age children. While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places. (Wikia) │ Written by J. K.
