Harry: Mum? Dad?
Harry: Ron! You've really got to see this! Ron! You've got to see this! Ron, Ron, come on. Get out of bed!
Harry: There's something you've got to see. Now, come on!
Harry: Come on. Come. Come look, it's my parents!
Ron: I only see us.
Harry: Look in properly. Go on. Stand there. There. You see them, don't you? That’s my dad
Ron: 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?
Harry: How can it? Both my parents are dead.
Dumbledore: Back again, Harry? I see that you, like so many before you, have discovered the delights of the Mirror of Erised. I trust by now you realize what it does. Let me give you a clue. The happiest man on earth would look into the mirror and see only himself, exactly as he is.
Harry: So, then it shows us what we want? Whatever we want?
Dumbledore: 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.
