Mrs. Cole:
I must admit to some confusion receiving your letter, Professor Dumbledore. In all the years Tom's been here, he's never once had a family visitor. There have been... incidents with the other children. Nasty things.
[opens the door]

Mrs. Cole:
Tom? You have a visitor.
Albus Dumbledore:
How do you do, Tom?
Tom Riddle - Age 11:
[without turning around]
Go.
[cut to a short time later, as Dumbledore sits opposite Tom]

Tom Riddle - Age 11:
You're the doctor, aren't you?
Albus Dumbledore:
No, I'm a professor.
Tom Riddle - Age 11:
I don't believe you. She wants me looked at. They think I'm... different.
Albus Dumbledore:
Well, perhaps they're right.
Tom Riddle - Age 11:
I'm not mad.
Albus Dumbledore:
Hogwarts is not a place for mad people. Hogwarts is a school. A school of magic. You can do things can't you, Tom? That other children can't.
Tom Riddle - Age 11:
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?
Albus Dumbledore:
Well, I'm like you, Tom. I'm different.
Tom Riddle - Age 11:
Prove it.
[Dumbledore turns and looks at the wardrobe, which bursts into flames. Something rattles on the inside]

Albus Dumbledore:
I think there's something in the wardrobe trying to get out, Tom.
[Tom opens the wardrobe, and dumps out the contents]

Albus Dumbledore:
Thievery is not tolerated at Hogwarts, Tom. At Hogwarts you will be taught not only how to use magic, but how to control it. Do you understand me?
[Dumbledore starts to leave]

Tom Riddle - Age 11:
I can speak to snakes, too. They find me... whisper things.
[Dumbledore stops, looking surprised]

Tom Riddle - Age 11:
Is that normal, for someone like me?

Transcript:
I admit some confusion upon
receiving your letter, Mr. Dumbledore.
In all the years Tom's been here,
he's never once had a family visitor.
There have been incidents
with the other children. Nasty things.
Tom, you have a visitor.
How do you do, Tom?
Don't.
- You're the doctor, aren't you?
- No.
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'm different.
Prove it.
I think there's something in your wardrobe
trying to get out, Tom.
Thievery is not tolerated at Hogwarts,
Tom.
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.
Whisper things.
Is that normal for someone like me?
Did you know, sir? Then?
Did I know I'd just met the most
dangerous dark wizard of all time? No.
If I had, I...
Over time, while here at Hogwarts...
...Tom Riddle grew close
to one particular teacher.
Can you guess
who that teacher might be?
You didn't bring Professor Slughorn back
simply to teach Potions, did you?
No, I did not.
You see, Professor Slughorn possesses
something I desire very dearly.
And he will not give it up easily.
You said Professor Slughorn
would try to collect me.
