Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
In mid-20s New York, Newt Scamander, the British young activist wizard, arrives in town, holding a mysterious leather suitcase which shelters a wide array of diverse and magical creatures that exist among us. Amid an already fragile equilibrium of secrecy, and the increasing disasters ascribed to the dark wizard, Gellert Grindelwald, Newt's precious suitcase will be lost--and to make matters worse--several creatures will manage to escape. Before long, this situation will catch Senior Auror Percival Graves' attention who will target Newt, in the background of an invisible, devastating, and utterly unpredictable menace that still wreaks havoc on 5th Avenue. In the end, is there a hidden agenda behind Graves' intentions; moreover, what will happen to the remaining fantastic beasts still loose in the streets?

Who are you
Something is stalking our city
- Dougal, settle down now, please. (DOUGAL GRUMBLES) It won't be long.
- - British, huh? - Yes. - First trip to New York? - Yes. Anything edible in there? Livestock?
- Must get that fixed. Um... No.
- Welcome to New York. Thank you. Next.
- WITNESS: And it was like a... Like a wind. Or like a... Like a ghost. But dark. And I saw its eyes. Shining white eyes.
- A dark wind, with eyes? It's like a dark mass.
- And it dove down there. Down underground. Someone ought to do something about it. It's everywhere, this thing. It's out of control.
- Hey, you get anything? REPORTER: Dark wind. Blah, blah. PHOTOGRAPHER: Some sorta atmospheric hooey. Or electrical.
- REPORTER: Hey, you thirsty? No. I'm on the wagon. Promised Martha I'd lay off. (HISSING) - PHOTOGRAPHER: It's atmospheric. - (WALL CRACKING)
- Out of the way, folks. Coming through! MARY LOU: This great city sparkles with the jewels of man's inventions. Movie theaters, automobiles, the wireless, electric lights, - all dazzle and bewitch
- We have to fight. Join us, the Second Salemers, in our fight. Excuse me, doll. Just trying to get to the bank. MARY LOU: We have to fight together - for the sake of our... - Excuse me... MAN:
- What drew you to our meeting today? Oh, I was just passing. Are you a seeker? A seeker after truth?
- NEWT: I'm more of a chaser, really.
- MARY LOU: Hear my words. And heed my warning. (RUSTLING) And laugh if you dare.
- Witches live among us. We have to fight together for the sake of our children. For the sake of tomorrow. What do you say to that, friend?
- No, I was just... I was just waiting.
- (SIGHS) What brings you here? Same as you. You're here to get a loan to open up a bakery? Yes.
- - Well, may the best man win, I guess. - Excuse me.
- Hey! Hey, mister! Hey, mister. Hey, fella. Mr. Kowalski, Mr. Bingley will see you now.
- Okay. (EXHALES) Okay. (CHUCKLES NERVOUSLY)
- MR. BINGLEY: You're currently working
- in a canning factory. That's the best I can do. I only got back in, uh, '24. - Got back? - From Europe, sir. Yeah. I was part of the expeditionary forces there.
- - All right. - MR. BINGLEY: Mr. Kowalski... You gotta try the paczkis, okay? It's my grandmother's recipe. The orange zest just... - (SIGHS HAPPILY) - MR. BINGLEY: Mr. Kowalski. What do you pro

- Oh, so you're gonna steal the money, huh? - (ALARM BLARING) - Petrificus Totalus.
- No. Don't play that. - (CHITTERING) - Look.

- I'm taking you in. Taking me in where? Magical Congress of the United States of America.
- So you work for MACUSA. What are you, some kind of investigator?
- At least tell me you took care of the No-Maj. - The what? - The No-Maj. No-Magic. The non-wizard! Oh. Sorry, we call them Muggles. You wiped his memory, right? The No-Maj with the case?
- - Um... - Oh... That's a Section 3-A, Mr. Scamander. I'm taking you in.
- Sorry, but I do have things to do, actually. Well... (SCOFFS) You'll have to rearrange them. What are you doin' in New York anyway? I came to buy a birthday present. Couldn't you have done that
- Hey. By the way, we don't allow the breeding of magical creatures in New York. We closed that guy down a year ago.
- (TINA CLEARS THROAT) Major Investigation Department. - I thought you was... - Major Investigation Department. I got a Section 3-A.
- The International Confederation is threatening to send a delegation. They think this is related to Grindelwald's attacks in Europe. I was there. This is a beast. No human could do what this thin
- I made your position here quite clear, Ms. Goldstein. - Yes, Madam President. But I... - You're no longer an Auror.
- No, Madam President, but... Goldstein. There's been a minor... This office is currently concerned with very major incidents. Get out. Yes, ma'am.
- So you got your wand permit? All foreigners have to have them in New York. I made a postal application weeks ago.
- TINA: Scamander... And you were just in Equatorial Guinea? And I've just completed a year in the fields. I'm writing a book about magical creatures. Like an extermination guide? No, a guide to
- Did you just butt in on the investigative team again?
- Where have you been? What? Where'd she pick you up?
- Have you been tracking them Second Salemers again? Of course not, sir.
- Afternoon, Mr. Graves, sir. Afternoon, Abernathy. Mr. Graves, sir, this is Mr. Scamander. He has a crazy creature in that case, and it got out and caused mayhem in a bank.

- Collect your leaflets before you get food, children.
- I can't believe you didn't Obliviate that man. If there's an inquiry, I'm finished. Why would you be finished? I'm the one that's... I'm not supposed to go near the Second Salemers.
- What was that? Uh, moth, I think. Big moth. (PEOPLE CLAMORING)

- Then look for it. Look! Oh... His neck's bleeding. - He's hurt. - (GROANS) Oh... Wake up! Mr. No-Maj.
- Mercy Lewis, what is that? NEWT: It's nothing to worry about. That is a Murtlap.
- What else have you got in there?
- - You? - Hello. Easy, Mr... Kowalski. Jacob. You can't Obliviate him. We need him as a witness. I'm sorry. You've just yelled at me the length of New York for not doing it in the first place.
- Yeah, I admit that is a slightly more severe reaction than I've seen. But if it was really serious, he'd have...
- What? Well, the first symptom would be flames out of his anus. - He doesn't seem to... - This is balled up! It'll last 48 hours at the most. - I can keep him, if you want me to. - Keep him? (SC

- Now, they're just putting the papers to bed, as they say. (INDISTINCT CHATTER)
- Mr. Shaw. Sir. He's with the Senator. Never mind that, Barker. I wanna see my father.
- I'm so sorry, Mr. Shaw, but your son insisted. Father, you're gonna wanna hear this.
- Take the freaks with you. LANGDON: This is Father's office, not yours. And I'm sick of this. Every time I walk in here... SHAW SENIOR: Okay. That's it! Thank you.
- We hope you'll reconsider, Mr. Shaw. We're not difficult to find. Until then, we thank you for your time.
- Hey, boy! You dropped something.
- - (PAPER CRUMPLING) - Here you go, freak. Why don't you put that in the trash where you all belong?
- Okay. Before we go in... I'm not supposed to have men on the premises. In that case, Mr. Kowalski and I can easily seek other accommodations. - No, you don't. - (JACOB GRUNTS) - Watch your ste

- QUEENIE: Teenie, you brought men home.
- Gentlemen, this is my sister.
- Wanna put something on, Queenie? Oh, sure.
- So, who are they? That's Mr. Scamander. He's committed a serious infraction of the National Statute of Secrecy. - He's a criminal? - Uh-huh. And that's Mr. Kowalski. He's a No-Maj. QUEENIE: A N
- QUEENIE: Hot dog? Again? TINA: Don't read my mind. QUEENIE: Not a very wholesome lunch.
- (MUSIC CONTINUES, INDISTINCT)
- I really don't have a preference.
- You prefer strudel, huh, honey? (CHUCKLES) Strudel it is.
- (INHALES DEEPLY) Well, sit down, Mr. Scamander.
- We're not gonna poison you. (CREATURE SQUEAKS)
- It's your mother again. Somebody said something. What did they say? Tell me. Do you think I'm a freak? No. I think you're a very special young man, or I wouldn't have asked you to help me, now
- Mr. Graves, if I knew whether it was a girl or a boy... My vision showed only the child's immense power. He or she is no older than 10.
- I saw this child in close proximity to your mother. She I saw so plainly. That could be any one of hundreds... There's something else. Something I haven't told you. I saw you beside me in New Yo
- You're the one who gains this child's trust. You are the key. I saw this. You want to join the wizarding world. I want those things too, Credence. I want them for you.
- So find the child. Find the child and we'll all be free.
- QUEENIE: The job ain't that glamorous. I mean, I spend most days making coffee. Unjinxing the john. Tina's the career girl. (1920s MUSIC PLAYING ON RADIO) Nah, we're orphans. Ma and Pa died of D

- Oh! You slay me. I ain't never really talked to a No-Maj before. Huh. Really?
- I'm just saying, don't go getting attached. He's gonna have to be Obliviated. It's nothing personal. Oh, hey, you okay, honey? So, Ms. Goldstein, I think Mr. Kowalski could do with an early nigh
- Don't ask. Hey, you guys can bunk in here.
- Uh, I thought you might like a hot drink.
- JACOB: (SIGHS) Wow! Psst! Hey. Mr. Scamander, look, cocoa.
- Toilet's down the hall to the right. Thanks.
- Very much. (DOOR CLOSES) (WHISTLES)
- NEWT: Come on. (FOOTSTEPS RECEDING)
- - (OBJECTS CLATTERING) - (GRUNTS) (BOTH BUZZING) NEWT: Will you sit down? Good idea.
- That's definitely the Murtlap. You must be particularly susceptible. See, you're a Muggle, so our physiologies are subtly different.
- - Stay still. - Ah... That should stop the sweating. And one of those should sort the twitch.
- Come on. Whatcha got there? This, the locals call Swooping Evil. Not the friendliest of names. It's quite an agile fella.
- I've been studying him, and I'm pretty sure that his venom could be quite useful if properly diluted. Just to remove bad memories, you know? (SCREECHING)
- Probably shouldn't let him loose in here, though. (DOOR OPENS) Come on.
- (THUNDER RUMBLING) NEWT: Come on. Down you come. (SCREECHING)
- Thank Paracelsus. If you'd have got out, that could've been quite catastrophic. So he's the real reason I came to America.
- To bring Frank home. (SCREECHING) Wait. No, sorry. Stay there. - He's a wee bit sensitive to strangers. - (SCREECHING) Here you are. Here you are. He was trafficked, you see. I found him in Egy
- To the wilds of Arizona. (SCREECHES)
- (DISTANT RUMBLING) All right, here they come.
- Here who comes? - Graphorns. - (WHIMPERS) - Hey! - You're all right.
- - JACOB: Oh! - Hello. Hello. (GRAPHORN SNUFFLING) So they're the last breeding pair in existence. So if I hadn't managed to rescue them, that could've been the end of Graphorns forever. (SNUF
- JACOB: What, you rescue these creatures? NEWT: Yes, that's right. Rescue, nurture and protect them. And I'm gently trying to educate my fellow wizards about them. - (CHIRPS) - Come on.
- Titus, Finn. Poppy, Marlow, Tom. (SQUEAKING) He had a cold. He needed some body warmth. JACOB: Aww... All right, on you hop. (TRILLING) (GASPS) He has some attachment issues. Now, come on, P

- Mr. Scamander? Oh, call me Newt. Newt. I don't think I'm dreaming. What gave it away? I ain't got the brains to make this up.
- Would you mind throwing some of those pellets in with the Mooncalfs over there?
- - Yeah, sure. - Just over there's... (JACOB CHUCKLES) Bugger. Niffler's gone. Course he has, little bugger. Any chance to get his hands on something shiny.
- JACOB: What did you do today, Jacob? (LAUGHS) I was inside a suitcase. Hey. Oh, hello, fellas. - All right. All right. - (ALL SQUEAKING) Take it easy. Take it easy.
- (CHUCKLING) Cutie. There it is.
- - NEWT: Step back. - (GASPS) Step back. (BREATHING HEAVILY) - What's the matter with this? - I said, step away.
- What the hell is this thing? It's an Obscurus. I need to get going. Find everyone who's escaped, before they get hurt. Before they get hurt? Yes, Mr. Kowalski. So they're currently in alien ter
- So where would you say that a medium-sized creature who likes broad open plains, trees, sort of waterholes, that sort of thing. Where might she go? In New York City? - Yes. - Plains? (CHUCKLES
- Central Park. And where is that exactly? Where is Central Park?
- Well, look... I would come and show you, but don't you think it's kind of a double-cross? The girls take us in, they make us hot cocoa... Now you do realize that once they see that you stopped
- (STAMMERS) I won't remember any of this? (EXHALES SHARPLY)
- All right, yeah, okay. I'll help you.
- Credence, where have you been?
- I was looking for a place for tomorrow's meeting.
- There's a corner on 32nd Street that could...
- I'm sorry, Ma. I didn't realize it was so late.
- - I was watching you at dinner. - Yeah. People like you, don't they, Mr. Kowalski? Well, I'm sure people like you, too, huh? Not really, no. I annoy people.
- Why did you decide to be a baker? Well, um... Because I'm dying in that canning factory. Everyone there's dying. It just crushes the life out of you. - Do you like canned food? - No. Yeah, me

- (GULPS) Lion. (LION GROWLING)
- NEWT: You know, New York is considerably more interesting than I'd expected.
- (OSTRICH SCREECHING) (WHIMPERS)
- Put this on. But why would I have to wear something like this? Because your skull is susceptible to breakage under immense force.
- But we made 'em cocoa. (LOWING CONTINUES) All right.
- Here, you just, um, pop this on. Okay. Now there's absolutely nothing for you to worry about. Tell me, has anyone ever believed you when you told them not to worry? Well, my philosophy is that
- (CREATURE LOWING) She's in season. She needs to mate. (SPITS)

- - Reparo. - (BABOON CHITTERING)
- Tree! They're exactly the same.
- Same thing. Newt! (ERUMPENT LOWING) (GRUNTS) No, don't. - (SCREECHES) - I'm so sorry.

- In you hop. (FOOTSTEPS RECEDING)
- ANNOUNCER: Ladies and gentlemen... Tonight's keynote speaker needs no introduction from me. He's been mentioned as a future president. And if you don't believe me, just read his daddy's newspaper
- Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the senator for New York, Henry Shaw. (AUDIENCE CHEERING)
- SENATOR SHAW: And it's true, we have made some progress. But there is no reward for idleness. So just as the odious saloons have been banished... (FEEDBACK)
- So now the pool halls, and these private parlors... (SNARLING)

- Who's been killed? Where is this man?
- Oh, hello, Minister. MOMOLU: Theseus Scamander? The war hero? No. This is his little brother. And what are you doing in New York? I came to buy an Appaloosa Puffskein, sir. Right. What are you
- SERAPHINA: Goldstein, who is this? This is Jacob Kowalski, Madam President. He's a No-Maj who got bitten by one of Mr. Scamander's creatures. WITCH: No-Maj? Obliviate him. WIZARD: Obliviate him.
- Merlin's beard. You know which of your creatures was responsible, Mr. Scamander?
- No creature did this. Don't pretend. You must know what that was. Look at the marks.
- - That was an Obscurus. - (ALL GASP) (CROWD MURMURING) SERAPHINA: You go too far, Mr. Scamander. There is no Obscurial in America.
- Impound that case, Graves. - Wait, no. Give that back. - Arrest them. (GRUNTING)
- Don't hurt those creatures. Please. You don't understand. Nothing in there's dangerous. - Nothing. - We'll be the judges of that. Take them to the cells. Don't hurt those creatures. Nothing in
- I'm so sorry about your creatures, Mr. Scamander. I truly am.
- Can someone please tell me what this Obscurial, Obscurius thing is, please?
- There hasn't been one for centuries.
- I met one in Sudan three months ago.
- There used to be more of them, but they still exist.
- It was before wizards went underground, when we were still being hunted by Muggles. Young wizards and witches sometimes tried to suppress their magic to avoid persecution.
- So, instead of learning to harness or to control their powers, they developed what was called an Obscurus.
- It's an unstable, uncontrollable dark force that busts out and attacks.
- Obscurials can't survive long, can they? There's no documented case of an Obscurial surviving past the age of 10.
- The one I met in Africa was 8 when she...
- What are you telling me here? That Senator Shaw was killed by a kid?

- GRAVES: You're an interesting man, Mr. Scamander. Mr. Graves.
- You were thrown out of Hogwarts for endangering human life. - That was an accident. - With a beast. Yet one of your teachers argued strongly against your expulsion. Now,
- what makes Albus Dumbledore so fond of you?
- I really couldn't say. So setting a pack of dangerous creatures loose here was
- just another accident. Is that right? Why would I do it deliberately? To expose wizardkind. To provoke war between the magical and non-magical worlds. Mass slaughter for the greater good, you me
- Yes. Quite. I'm not one of Grindelwald's fanatics, Mr. Graves.
- I wonder what you can tell me about this, Mr. Scamander.
- It's an Obscurus. But it's not what you think. I managed to separate it from the Sudanese girl as I tried to save her. So I wanted to take it home to study it. But it cannot survive outside that
- That is a parasitical, magical force that killed a child. What on earth would you use it for?
- You fool nobody, Mr. Scamander. You brought this Obscurus into the City of New York in the hope of causing mass disruption, breaking the Statute of Secrecy and revealing the magical world. You k

- Hey, Sam. Does Cecily know you been seeing Ruby?
- - How did you... - Let me Obliviate this guy, and she'll never hear about it from me.
- What are you doing? Hush. Teen's in trouble. I'm trying to listen. Jacob, where's Newt's case? I think that guy Graves took it. Okay. Come on. What, you're not gonna Obliviate me? Of course not
- Aberto. He would know some fancy spell to lock his office.
- Okay, let's get the good stuff outta you.

- Where you going? I, uh... I'm sick, Mr. Abernathy. (COUGHS) Again? Oh. Uh... Whatcha got there? Ladies' things. You wanna take a look? I don't mind. Good gravy. No. (CHUCKLES) I, uh... You g
- Credence, have you found the child?
- (WHIMPERING) My boy, the sooner we find this child, the sooner you can put that pain in the past where it belongs.
- I want you to have this, Credence. I would trust very few with it.
- And when you find the child, you touch this symbol, and I will know and I will come to you.
- Do this, and you will be honored among wizards forever.
- The child is dying, Credence.
- Your grandfather kept pigeons? Mine bred owls. I used to love feeding them. TINA: Graves always insisted the disturbances were caused by a beast. We need to catch all your creatures so he can't
- - Invisible? - Yes. Most of the time. He does, um...
- - How do you catch something... - With immense difficulty.
- Gnarlak. - Excuse me? - Gnarlak. He was an informant of mine when I was an Auror. He used to trade in magical creatures on the side. He wouldn't happen to have an interest in paw prints, would

- Six shots of Gigglewater and a Lobe-Blaster, please.
- Are all No-Majs like you? No. I'm the only one like me.
- I've arrested half of the people in here. You can tell me to mind my business, but I saw something in that death potion back there.
- I saw you hugging that Second Salem boy. His name's Credence. His mother beats him.
- She beats all those kids she's adopted, but she seems to hate him the most.
- And she was the No-Maj you attacked?
- That's how I lost my job. I went for her in front of a meeting of her crazy followers. They all had to be Obliviated. It was a big scandal. (WHISPERS) It's him. (SINGING) 'Cause love drives all
- You're the guy with the case full of monsters, huh? News travels fast. I was hoping you'd be able to tell me if there've been any sightings.
- You got a pretty big price on your head, Mr. Scamander. Why should I help you instead of turning you in? I take it I'll have to make it worth your while. Um... Let's consider it a cover charge.
- (SCOFFS) MACUSA's offering more than that.
- Frozen Ashwinder egg. Oh, you see, now we're...
- That's a... That's a Bowtruckle. - Right? - (SQUEAKS) - No. - Oh, come on. They pick locks, am I right? You're not having him. Well... Good luck getting back alive, Mr. Scamander, what with

- (WHISPERING) Demiguise are fundamentally peaceful, but they can give a nasty nip if provoked.
- You two, head that way. And try very hard not to be predictable.
- (SCREECHING IN DISTANCE) TINA: Was that the Demiguise? NEWT: No. But I think it might be the reason that the Demiguise is here.
- NEWT: Its sight operates on probability, so it can foresee the most likely immediate future.
- What did you just say? NEWT: This is my fault.
- I thought I had them all but, uh, I must have miscounted.
- (RUSTLING) It was babysitting that?
- Occamies are choranaptyxic. So they grow to fill available space.
- (CLINKING) - (GLASS SHATTERS) - (SCREECHING) - (GROANS) - (CHITTERS)
- - (CLINKING) - (SCREECHING) - Whoa. Whoa! - (GASPS) Whoa!
- - We need an insect! - Huh? Any kind of insect and a teapot.
- Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa.
- Oh! No! I got it! I'll get it! (GRUNTING)
- (BOTH PANTING) Choranaptyxic. They also shrink to fit the available space. (SCREECHING)
- Tell me the truth. Was that everything that came out of the case? That's everything. And that's the truth.
- (SIGHS) NEWT: Here she comes. You happy to be home? Yeah. Bet you're exhausted, buddy. Come on. Just place him in the middle there. There you go. That's right. (OCCAMIES TRILLING)
- Right. I think we need to talk.
- I wouldn't have let him keep you, Pickett. Think I would rather chop off my hand than get rid of you after everything that you've done for me. Now, come on.
- Think we've talked about the sulking before, haven't we? Pickett?
- Come on, give me a smile. - Pickett, give me a... - (BLOWS RASPBERRY)
- All right. Now that is beneath you.
- Who is she? Oh, that's no one.
- I've heard of that family. Aren't they kind of, you know... Please don't read my mind.
- Sorry, I asked you not to. I know. I'm sorry. I can't help it.
- People are easiest to read when they're hurting. I'm not hurting.
- Anyway, it was a long time ago.
- That was a real close friendship you had at school.
- Neither of us really fitted in at school.
- - So, we became quite... - You became real close?
- You need a giver. What are you two talking about?
- NEWT: Uh, nothing. QUEENIE: School. - School. - Did... Did you say school? Is there a school? A wizardry school here in, uh, America? Of course. Ilvermorny. It's only the best wizard school i
- (SOBBING) The Obscurial was here. Where did she go?
- Didn't you tell me you had another sister?
- (SOBBING) Please, help me. - Where's your other sister, Credence? - I need help. The little one. Where did she go? - Please, just help me. - (GRUNTS)
- Your sister's in grave danger.
- GRAVES: What is this place? CREDENCE: Ma adopted Modesty out of here. From a family of 12. She misses her brothers and sisters. She still talks about them.
- I could smell it off you the minute I met you. What?
- You have magical ancestry but no power. But you said you could teach me. You're unteachable. Your mother's dead. That's your reward. I'm done with you.
- Modesty. There's no need to be afraid.
- I'm here with your brother, Credence.
- Out you come now. (HISSING) (CEILING CRACKING)
- Credence. I owe you an apology. I trusted you.
- I thought you were my friend. I thought you were different.
- You can control it. Credence.
- I don't think I want to, Mr. Graves.
- JACOB: Is that it? That's the Obscurial thing?
- That's more powerful than any Obscurial I've ever heard of.
- If I don't come back, look after my creatures. Everything that you need to know is in there. What? They're not killing it.
- Newt! You heard him. Look after them.
- Keep hold of that, honey. - No, no, no, no. - (PANTING) I can't take you. - Please, let go of me, Jacob. - Hey. Hey. You're the one that said I was one of yous. Right? It's too dangerous.
- GRAVES: To survive so long with this inside you, Credence, is a miracle. You are a miracle.
- Come with me. Think of what we could achieve together. (GROANS)
- TINA: Newt! It's the Second Salem boy. He's the Obscurial. He's not a child. His power must be so strong he's somehow managed to survive.
- Tina, you're always turning up where you're least wanted.
- SERAPHINA: Contain this. Or we are exposed, and it'll mean war.
- Credence. Credence, I can help.
- (OFFICERS SCREAMING) (ROARS)
- - Bar the area. - AUROR: Yes, sir. I don't want anyone else down there. (GASPS)
- I'm here to help you, Credence. I'm not here to hurt you.
- I've met someone just like you, Credence.
- A young girl who'd been imprisoned. She had been locked away, and she'd been punished for her magic.
- That thing killed my son. I want justice. I'll expose you for who you are and what you've done.
- (CAMERAS CLICKING) (PEOPLE CLAMORING) (LAUGHS)
- Don't do this. Please. NEWT: Keep talking, Tina. Keep talking to him. He'll listen to you. He's listening.
- I know what that woman did to you.
- You need to stop this now. Newt and I will protect you.
- This man, he's using you. GRAVES: Don't listen to her, Credence. I want you to be free. It's all right.
- Shh! Don't! - You'll frighten him! - GRAVES: Wands down! Anyone harms him, they answer to me. - Credence. - Credence. (SHUSHING) TINA AND NEWT: No! GRAVES: No! (SCREAMING)
- GRAVES: Credence. (PANTING) You fools.
- Do you realize what you've done? SERAPHINA: The Obscurial was killed on my orders, Mr. Graves. GRAVES: Yes. And history will surely note that, Madam President.
- What was done here tonight was not right. He was responsible for the death of a No-Maj. He risked the exposure of our community. He has broken one of our most sacred laws. A law that has us scutt
- I refuse to bow down any longer. SERAPHINA: Aurors, I'd like you to relieve Mr. Graves of his wand and escort him back...
- Accio! (PANTING) (BREATHING HEAVILY)
- Do you think you can hold me?
- We'll do our best, Mr. Grindelwald.
- Hey. I figured somebody ought to keep an eye on this thing.
- Thank you. We owe you an apology, Mr. Scamander, but the magical community is exposed. We cannot Obliviate an entire city.
- I was intending to wait until we got to Arizona.
- But it seems that now you're our only hope, Frank.
- - (ALL GASPING) - (PEOPLE SCREAMING) (GASPS)
- (LIGHTNING CRASHES) - (WIND WHOOSHING) - (THUNDER RUMBLING)
- NEWT: They won't remember anything. That venom has incredibly powerful Obliviative properties.
- We owe you a great debt, Mr. Scamander.
- Now, get that case out of New York. Yes, Madam President.
- Obliviate him. There can be no exceptions.
- I'm sorry, but even one witness... You know the law.
- Hey. (CHUCKLES) This is for the best. Yeah. I was... I was never even supposed to be here. (VOICE BREAKING) I was never supposed to know
- Everybody knows Newt only kept me around because...
- Hey, Newt, why did you keep me around? Because I like you.
- Because you're my friend. And I'll never forget how you helped me, Jacob. (VOICE BREAKING) Oh... Hey... I'll come with you. (BOTH CHUCKLING) We'll go somewhere. We'll go anywhere. (LAUGHS WEAK
- (SNIFFLES) Jacob... It's okay. It's okay.
- (SIGHS DEEPLY) It's just like waking up, right?
- - (BOTH GRUNTING) - I'm so sorry. Sorry.
- NEWT: Dear Mr. Kowalski. You are wasted in a canning factory.
- Please take these Occamy eggshells as collateral for your bakery. A well-wisher.
- Well... - It's been, um... - Hasn't it?
- Listen, Newt, uh... I wanted to thank you. What on earth for? Well, you know... If you hadn't said all those nice things to Madam Picquery about me, I wouldn't be back on the investigative team
- Try not to need investigating for a bit. I will. A quiet life for me from now on. Back to the Ministry. Deliver my manuscript. I'll look out for it. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
- Does Leta Lestrange like to read? Who? The girl whose picture you carry.
- I don't really know what Leta likes these days. - Oh. - 'Cause people change. - Yes. - I've changed. I think. Uh... Maybe a little.
- I'll send you a copy of my book, if I may. I'd like that.
- I'm so sorry. How would you feel if I gave you your copy in person?
- Where'd you get your ideas from, Mr. Kowalski? I don't know. I don't know. (LAUGHING) They just come. Here you go. Don't forget this. Enjoy. Hey! Hendry. Storage, all right? Thanks, pal.
