  • Mum? Dad?
  • Ron! You've really got to (see) this! Ron! You've got to (see) this! Ron, Ron, come on. Get out of bed!
  • Why?
  • There's something you've got to (see) . Now, come on!
  • Come on. Come. Come (look) , it's my parents!
  • I only (see) us.
  • (Look in) properly. Go on. Stand there. There. You (see) them, don't you? That’s my dad.
  • That's me! Only, I'm head boy and I'm holding the Quidditch cup! And bloody hell, I'm Quidditch Captain too! I (look) good.
  • Harry, do you think this mirror shows the future?
  • How can it? Both my parents are dead.
  • Back again, Harry? I (see) that you, like so many before you, have discovered the delights of the Mirror of Erised.

  • So, then it shows us what we want? Whatever we want?
  • Yes...and no. It shows us nothing more or less than the deepest, most desperate desires of our hearts.
  • Now you, who have never known your family, you (see) them standing beside you.
  • But remember this, Harry. This mirror gives us neither knowledge nor truth. Men have wasted away in front of it, even gone mad.
  • That is why tomorrow it will be moved to a new home, and I must ask you not to go (looking for) it again.
  • It does not do to dwell on dreams, Harry, and forget to live.
