Harry, Ron, and Hermione deal with escaped convict Sirius Black. Black, a supporter of Voldemort, escapes from the Azkaban prison and is now on the loose, trying to hunt down Harry. The staff stations devilish creatures called Dementors at the gates of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, but their ability to draw people's souls from their bodies make them as much a danger as a help. Meanwhile, Harry and his friends, now teenagers, are learning the Defense Against the Dark Arts from the new professor, Remus Lupin. Lupin coaches Harry on how to deal with Dementors.
Marge: Where did you send the boy, Vernon?
Vernon: St. Brutus's. It's a fine institution for hopeless cases.
Marge: Do they use a cane at St. Brutus's, boy.
Harry: Oh, yeah. Yeah, I've been beaten loads of times.
Marge: Excellent. I won't have this namby-pamby wishy-washy nonsense about not beating people who deserve it.
Stan: Whereabouts are you headed?
Harry: The Leaky Cauldron. That's in London.
Stan: Do you hear that, Ern? "The Leaky Cauldron. That's in London." [laughs]
Shrunken Head: The Leaky Cauldron. Hey, if you have the pea soup make sure you eat it before it eats you. [laughs maniacally]
Seamus: He's been sighted, he's been sighted. (places newspaper on the table)
Seamus: Sirius Black.
Hermione: Dufftown. That's not far from here.
Neville: You don't think he'd come to Hogwarts, do you?
Boy #2: With dementors at every entrance?
Seamus: Dementors? He's already slipped passed them once, hasn't he? Who's to say he won't do it again.
Boy #1: That's right. Black could be anywhere. It's like trying to catch smoke. Like trying to catch smoke with your bare hands.
Hermione: An Animagus is a wizard who elects to turn into an animal. A werewolf has no choice. With each full moon, when he transforms he no longer remembers who he is. He'd kill his best friend if he crossed his path. Furthermore, the werewolf only responds to the call of its own kind.
Trelawney: My dear, from the first moment you stepped foot in my class I sensed that you did not possess the proper spirit for the noble art of Divination. (points to a line on Hermione's palm) No, you see, there. You may be young in years but the heart that beats beneath your bosom is as shrivelled as an old maid's, your soul as dry as the pages of the books to which you so desperately cleave. (Hermione storms off) Did I do Something?
Sirius: Pettigrew's alive! (points at Ron, holding his rat) And he's right there!
Ron: Me?! He's mental!
Sirius: Not you! You're rat!
Ron: Scabbers has been in my family for--
Sirius: Twelve years? Curiously long life for a common garden rat! He's missing a toe, isn't he?
Ron: So what?
Harry: All they could find of Pettigrew was his f--
