[Harry watches a faked memory of Tom Riddle at a Slug Club dinner party.]

Horace Slughorn:
[To Tom] I'd like to know where you get your information. More knowledgeable than half the staff, you are. [Someone in Tom's gang laughs]

Tom Riddle:
Sir, is it true that Professor Merrythought is retiring?

Horace Slughorn:
[Eating pineapple] Now, Tom, I couldn't tell you if I knew, could I? By the way, thank you for the pineapple. You're quite right, it is my favorite. But how did you know?

Tom Riddle:
[Thinks of a response] Intuition.

Horace Slughorn:
[Smiles, then looks at a clock that has gone off] Good gracious, is it that time, already? Off you go, boys, or Professor Dippet will have us all in detention. [Everyone but Tom leaves. Tom taps the hourglass, and Slughorn notices Tom is still there] Look sharp, Tom. Don't want to be caught out of bed after hours. Is something on your mind, Tom?

Tom Riddle:
Yes, sir. You see, I couldn't think of anyone else to go to. The other professors, well, they're not like you. They might misunderstand.

Horace Slughorn:
Go on.

Tom Riddle:
[Approaching Slughorn] I was in the library the other day, in the Restricted Section, and I read something rather odd about a bit of rare magic, and I thought, perhaps, you could illuminate me. It's called, as I understand it... [He makes an unintelligable sound and Slughorn stares in bewilderment.]

Horace Slughorn:
I beg your pardon? I don't know anything about such things and if I did, I wouldn't tell you! Now get out of here at once AND DON'T EVER LET ME CATCH YOU MENTIONING IT AGAIN! [The memory becomes cloudy and ends]

[Harry watches Slughorn's real memory, which starts with Tom tapping the hourglass]

Tom Riddle:
[approaching Slughorn] I was in the library the other day, in the Restricted Section, and I read something rather odd about a bit of rare magic. It's called, as I understand it... Horcruxes.

Horace Slughorn:
I beg your pardon?

Tom Riddle:
Horcruxes. I came across the term while reading and I didn't fully understand it.

Horace Slughorn:
I'm not sure what you were reading, Tom, but this is very dark stuff. Very dark indeed.

Tom Riddle:
Which is why I came to you.

Horace Slughorn:
[Stares at Tom for a second] A Horcrux is an object in which a person has concealed part of their soul.

Tom Riddle:
But I don't understand how that works, Sir.

Horace Slughorn:
One splits ones soul and hides part of it in an object. By doing so, you are protected, should you be attacked and your body destroyed.

Tom Riddle:
Protected?

Horace Slughorn:
That part of your soul that is hidden lives on. In other words, you cannot die.

Tom Riddle:
[Looks into the fireplace] And how does one split his soul, sir?

Horace Slughorn:
I think you already know the answer to that, Tom.

Tom Riddle:
Murder.

Horace Slughorn:
Yes. Killing rips the soul apart. It's a violation against nature.

Tom Riddle:
[Adjusting ring on his finger, the same one in present day Dumbledore's office] Can you only split the soul once? For instance, isn't seven...

Horace Slughorn:
Seven? Merlin's beard, Tom! Isn't it bad enough to consider killing one person? To rip the soul into seven pieces... This is all hypothetical, isn't it, Tom? All academic?

Tom Riddle:
[Smiling] Of course, sir. It'll be our little secret.

[Memory goes cloudy and ends]

Albus Dumbledore:
Good evening, Draco. What brings you here on this fine, spring evening?

Draco Malfoy:
Who else is here? I heard you talking.

Albus Dumbledore:
I often talk aloud to myself. I find it extraordinarily useful. Have you been whispering to you yourself, Draco? Draco, you are no assassin.

Draco Malfoy:
How do you know what I am?! I've done things that would shock you!

Albus Dumbledore:
Like cursing Katie Bell and hoping that, in return, she would bear a cursed necklace to me? Like replacing a bottle of mead with one laced with poison? Forgive me, Draco, but I cannot help feeling these actions are so weak that your heart couldn't really be in them.

Draco Malfoy:
He trusts me! I was chosen! [reveals the Dark Mark on his left arm]

Albus Dumbledore:
I shall make it easy for you... [raises his wand]

Draco Malfoy:
Expelliarmus!

Albus Dumbledore:
[wand flies out of his hand] Very good, very good. [door opens in the distance] You're not alone? There are others? How?

Draco Malfoy:
The Vanishing Cabinet in the Room of Requirement. I've been mending it.

Albus Dumbledore:
Let me guess; It has a sister? A twin?

Draco Malfoy:
At Borgin & Burke's. They form a passage.

Albus Dumbledore:
Ingenius. Draco, years ago, I knew a boy who made all the wrong choices. Please let me help you.

Draco Malfoy:
[breaking into tears] I don't want your help! Don't you understand? I have to do this! I have to kill you! Or he's going to kill me...

Bellatrix Lestrange:
[walking into the astronomy tower followed by Death Eaters] Well, look what we have here. Well done, Draco!

Albus Dumbledore:
Good evening, Bellatrix. I think introductions are called for.

Bellatrix Lestrange:
Love to, Albus, but I'm afraid we're on a bit of a tight schedule. [to Draco] Do it!

Fenrir Greyback:
He doesn't have the stomach... just like his father. Let me finish him in my own way.

Bellatrix Lestrange:
No! The Dark Lord was clear; The boy's to do it. This is your moment. Do it! Go on, Draco! NOW!

Severus Snape:
No. [steps in]

Albus Dumbledore:
Severus... please.

[short pause]

Severus Snape:
Avada Kedavra!

[The spell hits Dumbledore. He is knocked over the rail behind him and falls from the tower]
