Some of your classmates... well, let's just say they're...
Some of your classmates... well, let's just say they're unlikely to make the shelf.
[Slughorn points to a wall of portraits of past "Slug Club" members]
Anyone who aspires to be anyone ends up here. But then again, you already are someone, aren't you, Harry?
Did Voldemort ever make the shelf, sir?
You knew him, didn't you, sir? Tom Riddle? You were his teacher.
Mr. Riddle had a number of teachers whilst he was here at Hogwarts.
What was he like?
I'm sorry, sir. Forgive me. He killed my parents.
I... of course, it's only natural you should want to know more. But I'm afraid I must disappoint you, Harry. When I first met young Mr. Riddle, he was a quiet, albeit brilliant boy committed to becoming a first-rate wizard. Not unlike others I've known. Not unlike yourself, in fact. If the monster existed, it was buried deep within.
How do you do, Tom?
- You're the doctor, aren't you?
I am a professor.
I don't believe you.
She wants me looked at.
They think I'm different.
Well, perhaps they're right.
I'm not mad.
Hogwarts is not a place for mad people.
Hogwarts is a school.
A school of magic.
You can do things, can't you, Tom?
Things other children can't.
I can make things move
without touching them.
I can make animals do what I want
without training them.
I can make bad things happen
to people who are mean to me.
I can make them hurt...
...if I want.
Who are you?
Well, I'm like you, Tom.
I think there's something in your wardrobe
trying to get out, Tom.
Thievery is not tolerated at Hogwarts,
At Hogwarts, you'll be taught not only
how to use magic, but how to control it.
You understand me?
I can speak to snakes too.
They find me.
Is that normal for someone like me?
