McGonagall: Welcome to Hogwarts. Now, in a few moments, you will pass through these doors and join your classmates. But before you can take your seats, you must be sorted into your houses. They are Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, and Slytherin. Now, while you are here, your house will be like your family. Your triumphs will earn you points. Any rule breaking, and you will lose points. At the end of the year, the house with the most points is awarded the House Cup.
Neville: Trevor! Sorry.
McGonagall: The sorting ceremony will begin momentarily.
Draco: It's true then, what they're saying on the train. Harry Potter has come to Hogwarts. This is Crabbe and Goyle. And I'm Malfoy. Draco Malfoy. Think my name's funny, do you? No need to ask yours. Red hair, and a hand me down robe? You must be a Weasley. We'll soon find that some wizarding families are better than others, Potter. You dont want to go making friends with the wrong sort. I can help you there.
Harry: I think I can tell the wrong sort for myself, thanks.
McGonagall: We’re ready for you now. Follow me.
McGonagall: Can you wait along here please.
McGonagall: When I call your name, you will come forth, I shall place the sorting hat on your head, and you will be sorted into your houses. Hermione Granger.
Hermione: Oh, no. Okay, relax.
Ron: Mental that one, I'm telling you.
Sorting Hat: Ah, right then...hmm...right. Okay...Gryffindor!!
McGonagall: Draco Malfoy.
Sorting Hat: SLYTHERIN!
McGonagall: Ronald Weasley.
Sorting Hat: Ah! Another Weasley. I know just where to put you...Gryffindor!!
McGonagall: Harry Potter.
Sorting Hat: Hmm...difficult, very difficult. Plenty of courage I see. Not a bad mind, either. There's talent, oh yes. And a thirst to prove yourself. But where to put you?
Harry: Not Slytherin. Not Slytherin.
Sorting Hat: Not Slytherin, eh? Are you sure? You could be great, you know. It’s all here in your head. And Slytherin will help you on your way to greatness! There's no doubt about that! No? Well, if you're sure...had better be...GRYFFINDOR!!
