(Sirius saying goodbye to Harry and Hermione...)
Sirius Black (to Harry): It's cruel that I spent so much time with James and Lily, and you so little. But know this: The ones that love us never really leave us. And you can always find them... in here. (to Hermione): You really are the brightest witch of your age.
Harry Potter: You see Sirius talking to me there? He's asking me to come live with him.
Hermione Granger: That's great.
Harry Potter: When we free him, I'll never have to go back to the Dursleys'. It'll just be me and him. We could live in the country... someplace you can see the sky. He'll like that after all those years in Azkaban.
(Dumbledore is stalling so Harry and Hermione can save Buckbeak...)
Albus Dumbledore: Minister, I really think I should sign as well.
Cornelius Fudge: Yes, very well. Perhaps it would be... Right there on the line... Your name only.
Albus Dumbledore: It's such a very long name... (Later, outside...) Now, look there.
Cornelius Fudge: Where?
Albus Dumbledore: Look beyond the rocks.
Cornelius Fudge: What am I supposed to see?
Albus Dumbledore: Professor Dippet had that ling planted when he was headmaster.
Cornelius Fudge: Oh, yes. Indeed, indeed.
Albus Dumbledore: And all the strawberries, you see?
Cornelius Fudge: I see no strawberries...
Albus Dumbledore: Mysterious thing, time. Powerful... and when meddled with, dangerous. Sirius Black is in the topmost cell of the Dark Tower. You know the laws, Miss Granger. You must not be seen. And you would do well, I feel, to return before this last chime. If not, the consequences are too ghastly to discuss. If you succeed tonight... more than one innocent life may be spared. Three turns should do it, I think. Oh, and by the way. When in doubt, I find retracing my steps to be a wise place to begin. Good luck.
Sirius Black: Sorry about the bite. I reckon that twinges a bit.
Ron Weasley: A bit? A bit? You almost tore my leg off!
Sirius Black: I was going for the rat. Normally, I have a very sweet disposition as a dog. In fact, more than once, James suggested that I make the change permanent. The tail I could live with. But the fleas, they're murder.
Severus Snape: I told Dumbledore you were helping an old friend into the castle. And now, here's the proof.
Sirius Black: Brilliant, Snape. You've put your keen mind to the task and come to the wrong conclusion. Now, if you'll excuse us, Remus and I have some unfinished business to attend to.
(Snape puts his wand at Sirius' throat...)
Severus Snape: Give me a reason. I beg you!
Remus Lupin: Severus, don't be a fool.
Sirius Black: He can't help it. It's habit by now.
Remus Lupin: Be quiet.
Sirius Black: Be quiet yourself, Remus!
Severus Snape: You two, quarrelling like an old married couple.
