Albus Dumbledore:
[to Harry]
What you are looking at are memories. In this case containing to one individual. Voldemort. Or as he was known then, Tom Riddle.
[takes a memory]

Albus Dumbledore:
This file contains the most particular memory. The day I first met him. I'd like you to see it. If you want.
[Harry takes the memory, poors its contents into the Pensieve, puts his head in the Pensieve, and watches Mrs. Cole leading a younger Dumbledore to Tom Riddle]

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

Mrs. Cole:
Tom, you have a visitor.
Albus Dumbledore:
How do you do, Tom?
Tom Riddle - Age 11:
Go.
[Dumbledore seats himself]

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.
[a puzzled expression comes across Riddle's face]

Albus Dumbledore:
You can do things, can't you, Tom? Things to the children, Tom.
Tom Riddle - Age 11:
I can make things move without touching them. I can make animals do what I want without touching 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:
I'm like you, Tom. I'm different.
Tom Riddle - Age 11:
Prove it.
[Dumbledore conjures a fire in the wardrobe]

Albus Dumbledore:
I think there's something in your wardrobe that's trying to get out, Tom.
[Riddle opens the burning wardrobe and finds a small box rattling, while the flames disappear]

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

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

Tom Riddle - Age 11:
Is that normal for someone like me?
[Dumbledore looks at Riddle and Harry suddenly takes his head out of the Pensieve]

Transcript:
He seemed to all the world
a student like any other.
His name?
Tom Riddle.
Today, of course...
...he's known all over the world
by another name.
Which is why, as I stand looking out
upon you all tonight...
...I'm reminded of a sobering fact.
Every day, every hour...
...this very minute, perhaps...
...dark forces attempt to penetrate
this castle's walls.
But in the end,
their greatest weapon is you.
Just something to think about.
Now, off to bed. Pip-pip.
That was cheerful.
History of Magic is upstairs,
ladies, not down.
Mr. Davies! Mr. Davies!
That is the girls' lavatory.
Potter.
Oh, this can't be good.
Enjoying ourselves, are we?
- I had a free period this morning.
- So I noticed.
I would think you would want to
fill it with Potions.
Or is it no longer your ambition
to become an Auror?
It was, but I was told I had to
get an "Outstanding" in my O.W.L.
So you did, when Professor Snape
was teaching Potions.
However, Professor Slughorn is perfectly
happy to accept N.E.W.T. s students...
...with "Exceeds Expectations."
Brilliant. Um...
- Well, I'll head there straightaway.
- Oh, good, good.
Potter, take Weasley with you.
He looks far too happy over there.
I don't wanna take Potions.
This is Quidditch trials coming up.
I need to practice.
Attention to detail
in the preparation...
...is the prerequisite of all planning.
Ah.
Harry, my boy, I was beginning to worry.
We've brought someone with us, I see.
Ron Weasley, sir.
But I'm dead awful at Potions,
a menace, actually.
- I'm gonna...
- Nonsense, we'll sort you out.
Any friend of Harry's is a friend of mine.
Get your books out.
I haven't actually got
my book yet, and nor has Ron.
Get what you want from the cupboard.
Now, as I was saying,
I prepared some concoctions this morning.
Any ideas what these might be?
- Yes, Miss...?
- Granger, sir.
That one there is Veritaserum.
It's a truth-telling serum.
And that would be Polyjuice Potion.
It's terribly tricky to make.
And this is Amortentia...
...the most powerful
love potion in the world.
It's rumored to smell differently to each
person according to what attracts them.
For example, I smell...
...freshly mown grass,
and new parchment, and...
...spearmint toothpaste.
Amortentia doesn't create
actual love. That would be impossible.
But it does cause
a powerful infatuation or obsession.
And for that reason, it is probably
the most dangerous potion in this room.
Sir? You haven't told us
what's in that one.
Oh, yes.
What you see before you,
ladies and gentlemen...
...is a curious little potion
known as Felix Felicis.
But it is more commonly referred to as...
- Liquid luck.
- Yes, Miss Granger. Liquid luck.
