  • I (still) need...a wand.
  • A wand? (Well) , you'll want Ollivanders. No place better. Run along there, but wait. I (just) got one more thing I got to do. Won't be long.
  • Hello? Hello?
  • I wondered when I'd be seeing you, Mr. Potter. It seems (only) yesterday that your mother and father were in here buying their first wands. Ah. Here we are. (Well) , give it a wave.

  • Curious, very curious.
  • Sorry, but what's curious?
  • I remember every wand I've (ever) sold, Mr. Potter. It (just) so happens that the phoenix, whose tail feather resides in your wand gave one other feather, just one. It is curious that you should be destined for this wand when its brother gave you that scar.
  • And who owned that wand?
  • Oh, we do not speak his name. The wand chooses the wizard, Mr. Potter. It's not (always) clear why, but I think it is clear that we can expect great things from you. After all, He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named did great things...terrible, yes, but great.
