               We home in on a snake crawling through the undergrowth.

               INT. DARK ROOM - NIGHT TIME

               An old man lights a gas oven with a match, he is preparing food. 
               He notices a light on in the large house opposite, he stops what 
               he's doing and walks to the door.
 
                                     OLD MAN
                         Bloody kids.

               He leaves the house and heads towards the light.

               
               EXT. DARKNESS

               The old man is wandering up to the house carrying a lit torch. 
               He opens the front door, inside is just as dark. He begins climbing 
               the stairs, we hear whispers and hushed voices coming from upstairs. 
               The old man waits outside the room where the conversation is 
               taking place and listens on.
 
                                     WORMTAIL
                         Oh no no no my Lord Voldemort. I only 
                         meant... perhaps if we were to do it 
                         without the boy..
 
                                     VOLDEMORT
                         NO! The boy is everything, it cannot 
                         be done without him and it WILL be done 
                         exactly as I say.
 
                                     UNKNOWN MAN
                         I will not disappoint you my lord.
 
                         
                                     VOLDEMORT
                         Good. First, gather our old comrades. 
                         Send them a sign.
 
               A snake slithers past the old man and into the room. 

                                     VOLDEMORT
                         Nagini tells me the old caretaker is 
                         standing outside the door.
 
               Wormtail stands in the doorway and looks at the old man. The 
               old man looks terrified.
 
                                     VOLDEMORT
                         Step aside so I can give our guest a 
                         proper greeting.
 
               A loud spell is cast and Harry wakes up in a flash of panic.
 
               
               
               INT. BEDROOM

                                     HERMIONE
                         Harry!

               Harry is flustered and still panicing.

                                     HERMIONE
                         Are you alright?

                                     HARRY
                         Hermione. Bad dream. When did you get 
                         here?
 
                                     HERMIONE
                         Just now. You?

                                     HARRY
                         Last night.

               Hermione goes over to Ron's bed.

                                     HERMIONE
                         Wake up. Wake up Ronald!

                                     RON
                         Bloody hell.

                                     HERMIONE
                         Honestly. Get dressed, and don't go 
                         back to sleep. Come on Ron! Your mother 
                         says breakfast's ready.
 
               
               EXT. GRASSLAND

                                     HARRY
                         Where are we actually going?

                                     RON
                         Don't know. Hey Dad! Where are we going?
 
                         
                                     ARTHUR
                         Haven't the foggiest, keep up!

                                     AMOS
                         Arthur! It's about time son.

                                     ARTHUR
                         Sorry Amos. Some of us had a bit of 
                         a sleepy start. This is Amos Diggory 
                         everyone, he works with me at the ministry. 
                         And this strapping young lad must be 
                         Cedric, am I right?
 
                                     CEDRIC
                         Yes sir. 

                                     AMOS
                         Merlin's beard, you must be Harry Potter.
 
                         
                                     HARRY
                         Yes sir. This way.

                                     AMOS
                         Great great pleasure.

               They shake hands.

                                     HARRY
                         Pleasure to meet you too sir.

               They walk on up the hill.

                                     ARTHUR
                         That's it sir, just over there.

                                     AMOS
                         Shall we? We don't want to be late.
 
                         
               Camera homes in on a boot on top of the hillside.

                                     HARRY
                         Why are they all standing around that 
                         manky old boot?
 
                                     FRED
                         That isn't just any old manky boot mate.
 
                         
                                     GEORGE
                         It's a portkey.

               Everyone is in a circle putting their hands on the boot.

                                     AMOS
                         Time to go. Ready?

                                     HARRY
                         What's a 'portkey'?

                                     AMOS
                         After 3. One... Two...

                                     ARTHUR
                         Harry!

               Harry rushes over and puts his hand on the boot.

                                     AMOS
                         Three!

               There's a white flash and suddenly they're all flying through 
               the air. Everyone cheers. 
 
                                     ARTHUR
                         Let go kids!

                                     HERMIONE
                         What??

                                     ARTHUR
                         Let! Go!

               Harry, Hermione and the young Weasleys crash to the ground with 
               a thump. Arthur, Amos and Cedric come down more gracefully.
 
               
                                     ARTHUR
                         I bet that cleared your sinuses eh?
 
                         
               Cedric helps Harry to his feet.

                                     HARRY
                         Thanks.

               They walk across the field and we see there's a massive crowd 
               gathered and cheering, tents are set up all over.
 
                                     ARTHUR
                         Well kids, welcome to the Quidditch 
                         World Cup!
 
               They walk into the crowd, taking in the sights. Music is playing 
               and people fly about overhead on brooms. They approach a small 
               tent.
 
                                     AMOS
                         Parting of the waves I think old chap, 
                         see you at the match.
 
               Amos and Cedric separate and walk off.

                                     HARRY
                         See ya later Cedric.

                                     ARTHUR
                         Home sweet home.

               
               INT. TENT

               They enter the tent, the inside is many times bigger than the 
               outside.
 
                                     ARTHUR
                         Girls. Choose a bunk and unpack. Ron, 
                         get out of the kitchen we're all hungry.
 
                         
                                     TWINS
                         Yeah get out of the kitchen Ron.

                                     ARTHUR
                         Feet off the table.

                                     TWINS
                         Feet off the table.

               They take their feet off the table and put them back on as soon 
               as Arthur has walked past.
 
                                     HARRY
                         (Smiling) I love magic.

               
               EXT. HILLSIDE

               We pan up the hillside onto a large stadium which seems to have 
               a huge number of floors.
 
               INT. STADIUM

               The Weasleys and Harry are finding their seats.

                                     RON
                         Blimey Dad, how far up ARE we?

               Lucius Malfoy and Draco are walking below them.

                                     LUCIUS
                         Well put it this way, if it rains... 
                         you'll be the first to know
 
                                     DRACO
                         Father and I are in the minister's box, 
                         by personal invitation of Cornelius 
                         Fudge himself.
 
                                     LUCIUS
                         Don't boast Draco. There's no need with 
                         these people. Do enjoy yourself won't 
                         you. While you can.
 
               The ceremonies begin. Balloons fly and fireworks go off.

                                     ARTHUR
                         Come on up, take your seats. I told 
                         you these seats would be worth waiting 
                         for.
 
                                     GEORGE
                         Come on!

                                     FRED
                         It's the Irish!

               Five green and white figures fly through the air on their brooms 
               leaving a colored trail behind them. A glittering leprechaun 
               appears in the sky and starts dancing. Everyone is excited.
 
               
                                     GEORGE
                         Here come the Bulgarians!

               Five red figures this time, one of them performs a stunt on his 
               broom. One of them appears on the large screen. The crowd begins 
               to chant 'Krum, Krum, Krum'. 
 
                                     WEASLEYS
                         Krum!!!

                                     GEORGE
                         Yes!

               Viktor Krum waves to the crowd.

                                     ANNOUNCER
                         Good evening! It gives me great pleasure 
                         to welcome each and every one of you 
                         to the final of the 422nd Quidditch 
                         World Cup. Let the match begin!
 
               
               INT. TENT

                                     RON
                         There's no one like Krum. He's like 
                         a bird the way he rides the wind. He's 
                         more than an athlete, he's an artist.
 
                         
               The twins are bumbling about in a comical way muttering 'KRUMMMM'.
 
               
                                     GINNY
                         Think you're in love Ron?

                                     TWINS
                         (Singing) Viktor I love you! Viktor 
                         I do!
 
               Harry joins in.

                                     BOYS
                         When we're apart my heart beats only 
                         for youuu!
 
                                     FRED

                         gotta get out of here. Now.

               Some figures in pointed hoods carrying flaming torches are walking 
               across the campsite chanting ominous noises. The crowd is paniced 
               and rushing all over. Harry is trampled unconscious.
 
               
               EXT. OUTSIDE - TIME PASSED

               The crowds have all gone. A man walks through the rubble kicking 
               at things. He casts a spell which causes a bright flash and a 
               large ghostly skull forms in the sky with a snake crawling from 
               it. The man grins evilly, clearly demented. Harry stirs and witnesses 
               the man standing there. Harry runs. The familiar voices of Ron 
               and Hermione are calling for him.

                         a legendary event. The Tri-Wizard tournament. 
                         Now for those of you who do not know, 
                         the tri-wizard tournament brings together 
                         three schools for a series of magical 
                         contests. From each school a single 
                         contestant is selected to compete. Now 
                         let me be clear, if choosen you stand 
                         alone. And trust me when I say these 
                         contests are not for the faint hearted, 
                         but more of that later. For now please

                         of the Beauxbatons Academy of magic

               Dumbledore casts magic over a box which melds into a goblet containing 
               a blue flame.

                         merely write their name upon a piece 
                         of parchment and throw it in the flame

                         no turning back. As from this moment

               We see a suspicious character enter the room where the goblet

                         Ministry malcontent. And your new defence 
                         against the dark arts teacher. I'm here 
                         because Dumbledore asked me, end of 
                         story, goodbye, the end. Any questions? 
                         When it comes to the dark arts, I believe 
                         in a practical approach. But first, 
                         which of you can tell me how many unforgivable 
                         curses there are?

                         Because they are unforgivable. Use of

                         Correct. Now the ministry says you're 
                         too young to see what these curses do. 
                         I say different! You need to know what 
                         you're up against, you need to be prepared, 
                         you need to find somewhere else to put 
                         your chewing gum other than the underside

               Mad-Eye throws the chalk in anger.

                         about that. Gave the ministry quite 
                         a bit of grief a few years ago. Perhaps 
                         this will show you why.
 
               Mad-Eye pops open a jar with a spider in it.

                                     MAD-EYE
                         Hello. What a little beauty. 

               He uses his wand to send it around the class.

                                     MAD-EYE
                         Don't worry. Completely harmless.

               The class is unsettled.

                                     MAD-EYE
                         But if she bites... she's lethal!

               Draco laughs.

                                     MAD-EYE
                         What are you laughing at?

               Mad-Eye sends the spider onto Draco's face.

                                     MAD-EYE
                         Talented isn't she? What shall I have 
                         her do next? Jump out the window? Drown 
                         herself?
 
               Mad-Eye has the spider over a bucket of water, it's wriggling.
 
               
                                     MAD-EYE
                         Scores of witches and wizards have claimed 
                         that they only do did you-know-whose 
                         bidding under the influence of the imperious

                         nasty. The torture curse.
 
               Mad-Eye begins torturing the spider with magic, it squeals.

                         him, stop it!
 
               Mad-Eye stops. Neville is disturbed. Mad-Eye picks up the spider 
               which is still making a noise.
 
                                     MAD-EYE
                         Perhaps you could give us the last unforgivable 
                         curse Miss Granger.
 
               Hermione shakes her head. He casts a spell and the spider disintegrates.

                         There's a reason those curses are unforgivable, 
                         and to perform them in a classroom.

                                     HARRY
                         No sir.

                         The hell he is. The goblet of fire is 
                         an exceptionally powerful magical object, 
                         only an exceptionally powerful conjurer 
                         could have hoodwinked it. Magic way

                         of thought Mad-Eye.

                         That doesn't help Alastor. Leave this 
                         to you Barty.

                         The rules are absolute, the goblet of

                         name rising from that goblet these are

                                     SIR
                         I'm saying the devils are inside the 
                         walls. Igor Karkaroff, he was a deatheater. 
                         And no one, no one stops being a deatheater. 
                         Then there's Barty Crouch, heart of 
                         stone, sent his OWN son to Azkaban.
 
                         
                                     HARRY
                         Do you think one of them put my name 
                         in the goblet?
 
                                     SIR
                         I haven't a clue who put your name in 
                         that goblet Harry but whoever did it 
                         is no friend to you. People die in this 
                         tournament.
 
                                     HARRY
                         I'm not ready for this Sirius.

                                     SIR
                         You don't have a choice.

                                     HARRY
                         Someone's coming!

                                     SIR
                         Keep your friends close Harry.

               Ron enters the room.

                                     RON
                         Who you talking to?

                                     HARRY
                         Who says I was talking to anyone.

                                     RON
                         I heard voices. 

                                     HARRY
                         Maybe you're imagining things, wouldn't 
                         be the first time.
 
                                     RON
                         You're probably just practicing for 
                         your next interview I expect.
 
               Ron leaves. Harry goes to the fire again but Sirius is gone. 
               The newspaper in the fire has the headline "TEENAGE TRAGEDY".
 
               
               
               EXT. LAKESIDE

                                     NEVILLE
                         Amazing. Amazing.

                                     HARRY
                         Neville! You're doing it again!

                                     NEVILLE
                         Oh, right sorry.

                                     HARRY
                         (reading a book) Magical water plants 
                         of the highland Lochs?
 
                                     NEVILLE
                         Moody gave it to me. That day we had 
                         tea.
 
               Neville waves. Hermione and Ron are walking up to them.

                                     HERMIONE
                         (Whispering to Ron) We've already been 
                         through enough people why don't you 
                         just go and do it yourself? Ughh. What 
                         do you want me to say again?
 
               Ron whispers some words to Hermione. It's clear Ron and Harry 
               are not on speaking terms.
 
               Hermione walks up to Harry.

                                     HERMIONE
                         Ronald would like me to tell you that 
                         Seamus told him that Dean was told by 
                         Parvati that Hagrid was looking for 
                         you.
 
                                     HARRY
                         Is that right? Well.... what?

                                     HERMIONE
                         Uhhh...

               She walks back to Ron for more whispering and comes back.

                                     HERMIONE
                         Dean was told by Parvati that... Please 
                         don't ask me say it again. Hagrid's 
                         looking for you.
 
                                     HARRY
                         Well you can tell Ronald...

                                     HERMIONE
                         I'm NOT an owl!

               
               INT. FOREST

               Harry and Hagrid are walking through a dark forest.

                                     HAGRID
                         Did you bring your father's cloak like 
                         I asked you?
 
                                     HARRY
                         Yeah I brought the cloak. Hagrid where 
                         are we going?
 
                                     HAGRID
                         You'll see soon enough. Pay attention 
                         this is important.
 
                                     HARRY
                         What's with the flower? Hagrid have 
                         you combed your hair?
 
               Hagrid is looking more dapper than usual and is carrying a big 
               red flower.
 
                                     HAGRID
                         As a matter of fact I have. You might 
                         like to try the same thing now and again.
 
                         
               We hear animal noises. Madame Maxime calls out to Hagrid.

                                     MADAME MAXIME
                         Hagrid?

                                     HAGRID
                         Oh, the cloak. Put the cloak on.

               Harry does as he's told.

                                     HAGRID
                         Bonsoir Olympe.

                                     MADAME MAXIME
                         Oh Hagrid. I thought you weren't coming, 
                         I thought perhaps... you had... forgotten 
                         me.
 
                                     HAGRID
                         Couldn't forget you Olympe.

                                     MADAME MAXIME
                         What is it you want to show me? When 
                         we spoke earlier you sounded so exhilirated.
 
                         
                                     HAGRID
                         You'll be glad you came. Trust me.
 
                         
               A dragon nearby gives a loud roar.

                                     MADAME MAXIME
                         Ahh, c'est magnifique!

               In an opening we see people are running about, dragons are roaring 
               and breathing fire.
 
                                     MADAME MAXIME
                         Can we get closer?

                                     HARRY
                         Dragons? That's the first task? You're 
                         joking.
 
                                     HAGRID
                         Come on Harry. They're seriously misunderstood 
                         creatures. 
 
               A huge flame fires up.

                                     HAGRID
                         Although, I have to admit that horntail 
                         is a right nasty piece of work. Poor 
                         Ron nearly fainted just seeing him you 
                         know.
 
                                     HARRY
                         Ron was here?

                                     HAGRID
                         Oh sure. His brother Charlie helped 
                         bring him over from Romania. Didn't 
                         Ron tell you that?
 
                                     HARRY
                         No he didn't. He didn't tell me a thing.
 
                         
               
               EXT. HOGWARTS - DAYTIME

               We're zoomed in on a badge, it depicts Cedric on a bright yellow 
               background. Then the badge spins and shows Harry on a green background 
               with the words "Potter Stinks" on it. As Harry walks along other 
               pupils aim insults at him saying he stinks. A young boy runs 
               past.
 
                                     BOY
                         Cedric rules!

                                     HARRY
                         Thanks.

               Harry gets to a doorway, two pupils stand in his way.

                                     BOY
                         Like the badge?

                                     HARRY
                         Excuse me..

               They laugh, Harry pushes his way through. He approaches Cedric 
               who is standing around with his friends. Cedric's friends hurl 
               off more insults.
 
                                     HARRY
                         (to Cedric) Can I have a word?

                                     CEDRIC
                         Alright.

               They walk away some distance.

                                     HARRY
                         Dragons. That's the first task. They've 
                         got one for each of us.
 
                                     CEDRIC
                         Are you serious? And Fleur and Krum, 
                         do they...?
 
                                     HARRY
                         Yes.

                                     CEDRIC
                         Right. Hey listen, about the badges. 
                         I've asked them not to wear them.
 
                         
                                     HARRY
                         Don't worry about it.

               Ron and Seamus are walking along. Harry approaches them.

                                     HARRY
                         (To Ron) You're a right foul git you 
                         know that?
 
                                     RON
                         You think so?

                                     HARRY
                         I know so.

                                     RON
                         Anything else?

                                     HARRY
                         Yeah. Stay away from me.

                                     RON
                         Fine.

               
               Draco calls out, he's sitting up a tree.

                                     DRACO
                         Why so tense Potter? My father and I 
                         have a bet you see. I don't think you're 
                         gonna last ten minutes in this tournament. 
                         He disagrees. He thinks you won't last 
                         FIVE.
 
                                     HARRY
                         I don't give a damn what you or your 
                         father thinks Malfoy. He's vile and 
                         cruel, and you're just pathetic.
 
               Harry walks away and Draco angrily tries casting a spell. Mad-Eye 
               appears and quickly turns Malfoy into a ferret.
 
                                     MAD-EYE
                         I'll teach you to cast when someone's 
                         back is turned.
 
                                     MCGONAGALL
                         Professor Moody what are you doing?
 
                         
                                     MAD-EYE
                         Teaching.

                                     MCGONAGALL
                         Is that a student?

                                     MAD-EYE
                         Technically it's a ferret.

               Mad-Eye is making the ferret hover around. He sends it up the 
               trouser leg of one of Draco's friends. He squirms and looks uncomfortable. 
               Everyone else is laughing. Mad-Eye winks to Harry and he laughs. 
               Eventually it comes back out and McGonagall turns Draco back 
               to normal.
 
                                     DRACO
                         My father will hear about this!

                                     MAD-EYE
                         Is that a threat! 

               Draco runs away. Mad-Eye shouts after him.

                                     MAD-EYE
                         I could tell you stories about your 
                         father that would curl even your greasy 
                         hair boy! It doesn't end here!
 
                                     MCGONAGALL
                         We never use transfigration as a punishment, 
                         surely Dumbledore told you that.
 
                                     MAD-EYE
                         He might've mentioned it.

                                     MCGONAGALL
                         Well you will do well to remember it.
 
                         
                                     MAD-EYE
                         (To Harry) come with me.

               
               INT. MAD-EYE'S ROOM

               Mad-Eye takes off his prosthetic leg and takes a seat.

                                     MAD-EYE
                         That's a foal glass. Lets me keep an 
                         eye on my enemies. If I can see the 
                         whites of their eyes they're standing 
                         right behind me.
 
               A noise emerges from a trunk on the floor and it shakes.

                                     MAD-EYE
                         Wouldn't even bother telling you what's 
                         in ther. You wouldn't believe it if 
                         I did. Now... what are you going to 
                         do about your dragon?
 
                                     HARRY
                         Oh... um... You know I just thought 
                         I'd...
 
                                     MAD-EYE
                         Sit. Listen to me Potter. Your pal Diggory, 
                         by your age he could take a whistle 
                         into a watch and have it sing you the 
                         time. Miss Delacour, she's as much a 
                         fairy princess as I am. As for Krum, 
                         his head may be filled with sawdust 
                         but Karkaroff's is NOT. They'll have 
                         a strategy, and you can bet that it'll 
                         play to Krum's strengths. Hmm? Come 
                         on Potter. What are your strengths?
 
                         
                                     HARRY
                         Um... I dunno.. I can fly. I mean I'm 
                         a fair flyer.
 
                                     MAD-EYE
                         Better than fair the way I heard it.
 
                         
                                     HARRY
                         But I'm not allowed a broom.

                                     MAD-EYE
                         You're allowed a wand.

               
               EXT. ARENA - TOURNAMENT STAGE 1

               The crowds are cheering, people are taking bets.

               
               INT. WAITING TENT

               Harry is pacing nervously. Hermione is standing by the tent door 
               whispering in.
 
                                     HERMIONE
                         Pssst! Harry? Is that you?

                         Yeah.

                                     HERMIONE
                         How are you feeling? OK? The key is 
                         to concentrate. After that you just 
                         have to...
 
                                     HARRY
                         Battle a dragon.

               Hermione enters the tent and they hug. A bright camera flashes, 
               Rita Skeeter the journalist approaches.

               Rita leaves and Dumbledore enters.

                                     DUMBLEDORE
                         Good day champions. Gather round please. 
                         Now you've waited, you've wondered and 
                         at last the moment has arrived. The 
                         moment only four of you can fully appreciate.

               Barty holds up a bag. Fleur takes out a little green dragon.

                                     HARRY
                         Nothing.

               Harry puts his hand in the bag and pulls out the dragon.

                                     BARTY
                         The hungarian horntail. These represent 
                         very real dragons, each of which has 
                         been given a golden egg to protect. 
                         Your objective is simple, collect the 
                         egg. This you must do, for each egg 
                         contains a clue without which you cannot 
                         hope to proceed to the next task. Any 
                         questions?
 
                                     DUMBLEDORE
                         Very well. Good luck champions. Mr Diggory

               INT. TENT 

               Harry is sitting alone nervously.

                                     DUMBLEDORE
                         (VOICEOVER THE LOUDSPEAKER) Three of 
                         our champions have now faced their dragons 
                         and so each one of them will proceed 
                         to the next task. And now our fourth 
                         and final contestant.
 
               Harry enters the rocky arena. The crowd are cheering his name. 
               He sees the golden egg sitting alone, he makes a run for it but 
               the dragon appears. Harry's forced to retreat behind a rock as 
               the dragon flames him. Harry stumbles and falls around the arena.
 
               
                                     HERMIONE
                         Your wand harry! Your wand!

               Harry summons a broom. He jumps on and flies off, the dragon 
               gives chase. The dragon bursts through the crowd and they look 
               stunned.
 
               
               EXT. HOGWARTS SKY

               Harry is flying at high speed around the Hogwarts buildings. 
               The dragon cuts him off and whips him off his broom, he lands 
               on the roof of Hogwarts, hanging on for dear life. The dragon 
               is clambering across the roof, strewing tiles as it goes. Harry 
               reaches his broom but it's stuck. He jerks it loose and lets 
               go of the roof just in time before the dragon swipes at him. 
               He falls a long way but regains control. He flies on to an area 
               with a bridge, he flies through a gap in the bridge but the dragon 
               crashes into it and falls into the water.
 
               
               INT. ARENA

               The crowds are mostly silent. We see Harry flying towards us 
               and the crowd erupts. He goes straight for the golden egg.
 
               
               
               INT. HOGWARTS

               Harry is lifting the golden egg, people around him cheering. 
               The Weasly twins have Harry sitting on their shoulders.

                         Go on Harry, what's the clue?

               Seamus hands Harry the golden egg.

                                     HARRY
                         Who wants me to open it? You want me 
                         to open it?
 
               He opens the egg and a loud horrific screech comes out, he closes 
               it again.
 
                                     HARRY

               He opens the egg and the horrible screech noise comes out.

                                     MYRTLE
                         I'd try putting it in the water if I 
                         were you.
 
                                     HARRY
                         Myrtle!

                                     MYRTLE
                         Long time no see.

               The ghostly figure of little Myrtle flies around.

                                     MYRTLE
                         I was circling a blocked drain the other 
                         day and could swear I saw a bit of polyjuice 
                         potion. Not being a bad boy again are 
                         you Harry?
 
                                     HARRY
                         Polyjuice potion! Kicked the habit. 
                         Myrtle, did you say try putting it in 
                         the water?
 
               Myrtle flies around again and gets in the water.

                                     MYRTLE
                         Well. That's what he did. The other 
                         boy, the handsome one. Cedric.
 
               Harry takes the egg and puts it under the water.

                                     MYRTLE
                         Well go on, open it.

               Harry does so and goes underwater himself. He hears a voice singing.
 
               
                                     VOICE SINGING
                         Come seek us where our voices sound. 
                         We cannot sing above the ground. An 
                         hour long you'll have to look, to recover 
                         what we took.
 
                                     HARRY
                         Myrtle, there aren't Merpeople in the 
                         black lake are there?
 
                                     MYRTLE
                         Ahhh, very good. Took Cedric ages to 
                         riddle it out. Almost all the bubbles 
                         were gone...
 
               Myrtle laughs and Harry is embarrassed.

               
               INT. COMMON ROOM

                                     HERMIONE
                         Harry, tell me again.

                                     HARRY
                         Come seek us where our voices sound.
 
                         
                                     HERMIONE
                         The black lake, that's obvious.

                                     HARRY
                         An hour long you'll have to look.

                                     HERMIONE
                         Again obvious, though I must admit potentially 
                         problematic 
 
                                     HARRY
                         Potentially problematic? When was the 
                         last time you held your breath under 
                         the water for an hour Hermione?
 
                                     HERMIONE
                         Look Harry, we can do this. The three 
                         of us can figure it out.
 
               Mad-Eye Moody appears in the doorway.

                                     MAD-EYE
                         Hate to break up this scholar session 
                         but Professor McGonagall would like 
                         to see you in her office. Not you Potter, 
                         just Weasly and Granger.
 
                                     HERMIONE
                         But sir, the second task is only hours 
                         away and...
 
                                     MAD-EYE
                         Exactly. Presumably Potter is well prepared 
                         by now and could do with a good night's 
                         sleep. Go. Now! Longbottom!
 
               Neville appears from behind a bookcase.

                                     MAD-EYE
                         Why don't you help Potter put his books 
                         back.
 
                                     NEVILLE
                         You know, if you're interested in plants 
                         you'd be better with Gorshok's Guide 
                         to Herbology. Do you know there's a 
                         wizard in Nepal whose growing gravity 
                         resistant trees?
 
                                     HARRY
                         Neville. No offense, but I really don't 
                         care about plants. Now if there's a 
                         Tibetan turnip that will allow me to 
                         breathe underwater for an hour then 
                         great.
 
                                     NEVILLE
                         I don't know about a turnip but you 
                         can always use gilliweed.
 
               
               EXT. LAKESIDE

               The Weasly twins are shouting, busy taking bets. Harry is walking 
               along with Neville, he has some green plantlife in his hand.
 
               
                                     HARRY
                         You're sure about this Neville.

                                     NEVILLE
                         Absolutely.

                                     HARRY
                         For an hour.

                                     NEVILLE
                         Most likely.

                                     HARRY
                         Most likely?

                                     NEVILLE
                         Well there is some debate among herbologists 
                         as to the effects of freshwater versus 
                         saltwater.
 
                                     HARRY
                         You're telling me this now? You must 
                         be joking.
 
                                     NEVILLE
                         I just wanted to help.

                                     HARRY
                         Well that makes you sight better than 
                         Ron and Hermione. Where are they anyway?
 
                         
                                     NEVILLE
                         You seem a little tense Harry.

                                     HARRY
                         Do I?

                                     DUMBLEDORE
                         (Over a loudspeaker) Welcome to the 
                         second task. Last night something was 
                         stolen from each of our champions. A 
                         treasure of sorts. These four treasures, 
                         one for each champion, now lie on the 
                         bottom of the black lake. In order to 
                         win each champion need only find their 
                         treasure and return to the surface. 
                         Simple enough. Except for this, they 
                         will have one hour to do so and one 
                         hour only. After that they'll be on 
                         their own.
 
                                     MAD-EYE
                         (To Harry) Put that in your mouth.
 
                         
               Harry puts the gilliweed in his mouth and starts choking.

                                     DUMBLEDORE
                         (Continued) You may begin at the start 
                         of the cannon.
 
               The cannon fires and the champions enter the water, three of 
               them dive in while Harry is pushed. Underwater the effects of 
               gilliweed take hold, Harry's hands and feet become webbed. 
 
               
               
               EXT. ABOVE WATER

                                     SEAMUS
                         What's the matter with him?

                                     FRIEND
                         I don't know I can't see him.

                                     NEVILLE
                         Oh my god I've killed Harry Potter!
 
                         
               Harry flies into the air like a dolphin and the crowd cheer.
 
               
               
               EXT. UNDERWATER

               Harry swims among the fish and rocks. Singing voices start echoing. 
               We see Fleur get trapped, she screams. 
 
               
               EXT. ABOVE WATER

                                     DUMBLEDORE
                         (Over the loudspeaker) The Beauxbatons 
                         champion Miss Delacour has unfortunately 
                         been forced to retire. She will take 
                         no further part in this task. 
 
               
               EXT. UNDERWATER

               Harry is still searching around. He hears muffled screams. He 
               finds Ron, Hermione, Cho Chan and a blonde girl from Beauxbatons 
               tied in place by their ankles. Cedric is there, he takes Cho 
               with him. Harry sets about freeing Ron and Hermione but vicious 
               merpeople appear.
 
                                     HARRY
                         But she's my friend too!

                                     MERPERSON
                         Only one.

               What looks like a shark approaches at high speed. We see that 
               it has legs and it's Viktor. He takes Hermione and heads for 
               the surface. Harry frees Ron. 
 
               
               EXT. ABOVE WATER

               Cedric and Cho emerge, the crowd cheers. Viktor and Hermione 
               next, the crows chants 'Krum, Krum, Krum'. The Beauxbatons girls 
               look worried.
 
               
               EXT. UNDERWATER

               Harry looks over and sees the blonde girl that Fleur was unable 
               to rescue. He loosens her rope too and starts heading for the 
               surface with the both of them. He's attacked and gets held down, 
               he pushes Ron and the girl towards the surface.
 
               
               EXT. ABOVE WATER

               Ron and the girl come up, they are coughing but safe. They're 
               helped out of the water by a girl from Beauxbatons. Underwater 
               Harry casts a spell which propels him towards the surface, he 
               flies out and lands on the decking where the crowd are.
 
                                     DUMBLEDORE
                         Harry! 

                                     BARTY
                         Get him another towel.

                                     DUMBLEDORE
                         I want all the judges over here now.
 
                         
                                     FLEUR
                         (To Harry) You saved her, even though 
                         she wasn't yours to save. My little 
                         sister!
 
               Fleur kisses Harry on the face.

                                     FLEUR
                         Thank you! And you... (Looks to Ron). 
                         You helped!
 
                                     RON
                         Well... yeah... a bit

               Fleur kisses him too.

                                     RON
                         Merci.

               Hermione comes up to Harry with a towel.

                                     HERMIONE
                         Harry!

                                     HARRY
                         Hermione

                                     HERMIONE
                         Are you alright? You must be freezing! 
                         Personally I think you behaved admirably.
 
                         
               Hermione kisses Harry on the head.

                                     HARRY
                         I finished last Hermione.

                                     HERMIONE
                         Next to last.

                                     DUMBLEDORE
                         Attention! Attention! The winner is... 
                         Mr Diggory!
 
               Cedric and his friends cheer.

                                     DUMBLEDORE
                         For showing unique command of the bubblehead 
                         shark. The way I see it, Mr Potter would 
                         have finished first had it not been 
                         for his determination to rescue not 
                         only Mr Weasly but the others as well. 
                         We've agreed to award him second place! 
                         For outstanding moral fibre.
 
               
               As they're walking away from the lake Harry's friends are cheering 
               him.
 
                                     FRED
                         All that moral fibre eh?

                         Blimey even when you go wrong it turns 
                         out right.
 
                                     GEORGE
                         Well done 'moral fibre'.

               
               Barty Crouch is waiting for Harry.

                                     BARTY
                         Congratulations Potter, fine achievement. 
                         Well done boy. I'm sorry we haven't 
                         spoken, after all your story is one 
                         I've heard many times. Quite remarkable. 
                         Tragic of course, to lose one's family. 
                         Never whole again are we? Still, life 
                         goes on. And here we stand. I'm sure 
                         your parents would be very proud today 
                         Potter.
 
               Mad-Eye approaches them.

                                     MAD-EYE
                         Bartimus! Not trying to lure Potter 
                         into one of the ministry's summer internships 
                         are we? Last boy who went into the department 
                         of ministries never came out!
 
               Barty walks away from him.

                                     MAD-EYE
                         And they say I'm mad.

               
               EXT. DARK FOREST

                                     HAGRID
                         So I remember, I remember when I first 
                         met you all. Biggest bunch of misfits 
                         I've ever set eyes on. Always reminded 
                         me of myself a little. And here we all 
                         are, four years later.
 
                                     RON
                         We're still misfits.

                                     HAGRID
                         Maybe. But we've all got each other, 
                         and Harry of course. Soon to be! The 
                         youngest! Tri-Wizard champion there's 
                         ever been! Hooray!
 
               They walk on singing the Hogwarts song. Harry holds his head 
               in pain. On the ground he sees Barty Crouch laying lifeless.
 
               
                                     HARRY
                         Mr Crouch?

               
               INT. HOGWARTS DARK ROOM

                                     DUMBLEDORE
                         A man has died here. And he won't be 
                         the last, you must take action.
 
                                     FUDGE
                         I will not. In times like these the 
                         wizard world looks to its leaders for 
                         strength Dumbledore.
 
                                     DUMBLEDORE
                         Then for once show them some.

                                     FUDGE
                         The tri-wizard tournament will not be 
                         cancelled. I will not be seen as a coward.
 
                         
                                     DUMBLEDORE
                         But surely that is what's right, no 
                         matter what others think.
 
                                     FUDGE
                         What did you say? What did you say to 
                         me?
 
                                     MAD-EYE
                         Excuse me gentlemen, it may interest 
                         you to know that this conversation is 
                         no longer private.
 
               Mad-Eye points to the door. Harry enters.

                                     FUDGE
                         Harry! Harry how good to see you again.
 
                         
                                     HARRY
                         I can come back later Professor.

                                     DUMBLEDORE
                         Oh not necessary Harry the minister 
                         and I are done. I'll be back in a moment. 
                         Minister, after you. Harry do feel free 
                         to indulge in a liquorice snack in my 
                         absence, but I have to warn you they're 
                         a little bit sharp.
 
               Harry is left alone in the room. He puts his hand in the snackbowl 
               and takes a handful. It turns into a small creature which nips 
               at his hand.
 
                                     HARRY
                         Agh!

               A compartment in the wall opens, there's a glowing blue pool 
               of water there. He looks in. He falls and lands in another time 
               and place. It's a courtroom, the walls have a red glow. Dumbledore 
               is seated next to where Harry is.
 
               
               INT. COURTROOM

                                     HARRY
                         Professor?

               The man seated next to Dumbledore speaks.

                                     MAN
                         Professor.

               Dumbledore and the man shake hands. Their handshake goes through 
               Harry's body, he appears to be some kind of ghost with no presence. 
               Proceedings begin, a cage is raised from inside the floor.
 
               
                                     BARTY
                         Igor Karkaroff, you have been brought 
                         from Azkaban at your own request to 
                         present evidence to this counsel. Should 
                         your testimony prove consequential. 
                         Counsel may be prepared to order your 
                         immediate release. Until such time you 
                         remain in the eyes of the ministry a 
                         convicted deatheater. Do you accept 
                         these terms?
 
                                     IGOR
                         I do sir.

                                     BARTY
                         What do you wish to present?

                                     IGOR
                         I have names sir. There was a Rosier, 
                         Evan Rosier.
 
                                     BARTY
                         Mr Rosier is dead.

                                     IGOR
                         Dead? 

                                     MAD-EYE
                         (To Dumbledore) Yeah took a piece of 
                         me with him though didn't he.
 
               Mad-Eye points to his mechanical eye.

                                     IGOR
                         I didn't know.

                                     BARTY
                         If that is all the witness has to offer...
 
                         
                                     IGOR
                         No! No! There was Rookwood, he was a 
                         spy.
 
                                     BARTY
                         Augustus Rookwood? Of the department 
                         of ministries.
 
                                     IGOR
                         Ya ya, the same. He passed information 
                         to you know who from inside the ministry 
                         itself.
 
                                     BARTY
                         Very well. Counsel will deliberate. 
                         In the meantime you will be returned 
                         to Azkaban.
 
                                     IGOR
                         NO! WAIT! PLEASE! I have more. Snape, 
                         Severus Snape.
 
                                     DUMBLEDORE
                         The counsel is very much aware you have 
                         given evidence on this matter. Severus 
                         Snape was indeed a deatheater and prior 
                         to Lord Voldemort's downfall turned 
                         spy for us at great personal risk. Today 
                         he's no more a deatheater than I am.
 
                         
               Igor protests loudly.

                                     IGOR
                         It's a lie! Severus Snape remains faithful 
                         to the dark lord.
 
                                     BARTY
                         Silence!

               Barty hits the gavel repeatedly.

                                     BARTY
                         Unless the witness possesses any name 
                         of genuine consequence this session 
                         is now concluded.
 
                                     IGOR
                         Oh no no no no no. I heard about one 
                         more.
 
                                     BARTY
                         What's that?

                                     IGOR
                         The name...

                                     BARTY
                         Yes?

                                     IGOR
                         I know for a fact this person took part 
                         in the capture, and by means of the 
                         cruciatus curse, torture of the aurer 
                         Frank Longbottom and...
 
                                     BARTY
                         The name! Give me the wretched name!
 
                         
                                     IGOR
                         Barty Crouch! ... Junior.

               Barty Crouch junior begins to run. Mad-Eye zaps him with magic, 
               he falls into the center of the court. The crowd is in uproar. 
               Guards seize Barty junior.
 
                                     BARTY JR
                         Get your hands off me you pathetic little 
                         men. Hello father.
 
                                     BARTY
                         You are no son of mine.

                                     BARTY JR
                         GAHHHH!

               Harry steps out of the blue pool and we're back in the darkened 
               room.
 
                                     DUMBLEDORE
                         Curiosity's not a sin Harry, but you 
                         should exercise caution. It's a pensieve, 
                         useful if like me you find your mind 
                         a wee bit stretched. It allows me to 
                         see what small things I've already seen. 
                         You see Harry I've searched and searched 
                         for something, some small detail. Something 
                         I might have overlooked, something that 
                         would explain why these terrible things 
                         have happened. Every time I get close 
                         to an answer it slips away, it's maddedning.
 
                         
                                     HARRY
                         Sir, Mr Crouch's son, what happened 
                         to him?
 
                                     DUMBLEDORE
                         He was sent to Azkaban. Destroyed Barty 
                         to do it. But he had no choice, the 
                         evidence was overwhelming. Why do you 
                         ask?
 
                                     HARRY
                         It's just that I had a dream about him. 
                         It was in the summer, before school. 
                         In the dream I was in a house and Voldemort 
                         was there only he wasn't quite human, 
                         and Wormtail was there too and Mr Crouch's 
                         son.
 
                                     DUMBLEDORE
                         Have there been other dreams like this?
 
                         
                                     HARRY
                         Yes. Always the same one. Sir... these 
                         dreams, what I see, you don't think 
                         it's actually happening do you?
 
                                     DUMBLEDORE
                         I think it's unwise for you to linger 
                         over these dreams Harry, I think it's 
                         best that you simply...
 
               Dumbledore puts up his wand and pulls a quivering string of magic 
               out from his head.
 
                                     DUMBLEDORE
                         Cast them away.

               
               INT. CORRIDOR

               Harry is walking along, we hear raised voices from inside the 
               herbs store.
 
                                     IGOR
                         It's a sign Severus, you know what it 
                         means as well as I.
 
               The door opens and they see Harry. He looks at them. Igor leaves.
 
               
                                     SEVERUS
                         Potter! What's your hurry? Congratulations, 
                         your performance in the black lake was 
                         inspiring. Gilliweed, am I correct?
 
                         
                                     HARRY
                         Yes sir.

                                     SEVERUS
                         Ingenious. A rather rare herb gilliweed, 
                         not something found in your every day 
                         garden. Nor is this, know what it is?
 
                         
                                     HARRY
                         Bubble juice sir?

                                     SEVERUS
                         Veritaserum. Three drops of this and 
                         you-know-who himself will spill his 
                         darkest secrets. The use of this on 
                         a student is regrettably forbidden, 
                         however should you ever steal from my 
                         personal stores again, my hand might 
                         just slip over your morning pumpkin 
                         juice. 
 
                                     HARRY
                         I haven't stolen anything.

                                     SEVERUS
                         Don't lie to me. Gilliweed might be 
                         innocuous, but boomslang skin? lacewing 
                         flies? You and your friends are brewing 
                         polyjuice potion and believe me I'm 
                         going to find out why.
 
               Severus closes the door in Harry's face.

               
               EXT. ARENA

               Music is playing and a large crowd is gathered. The champions 
               emerge.
 
                                     DUMBLEDORE
                         Earlier today Professor Moody placed 
                         the tri-wizards cup deep within the 
                         maze. Only he knows its exact position. 
                         Now as Mr Diggory...
 
               The crowd cheer on hearing his name.

                                     DUMBLEDORE
                         (continued) and Mr Potter tied for first 
                         position they will be the first to enter 
                         the maze. Followed by Mr Krum...
 
               The bulgarian crowd go nuts.

                                     DUMBLEDORE
                         (continued) The first person to touch 
                         the cup will be the winner. I've instructed 
                         the staff to patrol the perimeter, if 
                         at any point should a contestant wish 
                         to withdraw from the task he or she 
                         need only send up red sparks with their 
                         wands. Contestants, gather round.
 
                         
                                     DUMBLEDORE
                         (To the contestants) In the maze you'll 
                         find not dragons or creatures of the 
                         deep. Instead you'll face something 
                         more challenging. You see, people change 
                         in the maze. Oh find the cup if you 
                         can, but be very weary you could just 
                         lose yourselves along the way.
 
                                     MAD-EYE
                         Champions! Prepare yourselves.

               Cedric hugs his father.

                                     DUMBLEDORE
                         On the count of three... ONE...

               The cannon goes off. Mr Filch shrugs comically. Dumbledore groans. 
               Harry and Cedric enter the maze through different entrances. 
               The entrance closes up behind Harry. Heavy mist sets in, we pan 
               out to see the maze is many stories tall. Harry starts traversing 
               the maze, creature noises are all around.
 
               Cedric is walking along, the maze walls begin to close in on 
               him. He makes a run for it. Fleur is running around scared, she 
               is attacked and knocked down. Viktor comes along and sees she's 
               unconscious on the ground, he walks on. Harry sees Fleur being 
               swallowed into the undergrowth.
 
                                     HARRY
                         Fleur? Fleur!

               He's too late she's disappeared. He sends up a red spark into 
               the air. A heavy wind starts blowing, walls are closing in, Harry 
               runs. Harry sees something shining in the distance and he moves 
               towards it Viktor tries to zap him but misses.
 
                                     CEDRIC
                         Get down!

               Harry ducks and Viktor gets zapped by Cedric. Cedric runs up 
               and kicks the wand out of Viktor's hand. He points his wand at 
               Viktor's body as if to finish him off, Harry runs up and intervenes.
 
               
                                     HARRY
                         No stop! He's bewitched Cedric.

               They struggle.

                                     CEDRIC
                         Get off me!

                                     HARRY
                         He's bewitched!

               The two of them begin running towards the cup. The undergrowth 
               grabs Cedric and he falls to the ground. Harry looks back. Cedric 
               is pinned down with no means of escape.
 
                                     CEDRIC
                         Harry! Harry!

               Harry zaps the plantlife and Cedric wriggles free. Harry helps 
               him up.
 
                                     CEDRIC
                         You know for a moment there I thought 
                         you were gonna let it get me.
 
                                     HARRY
                         For a moment so did I.

                                     CEDRIC
                         Some game huh?

                                     HARRY
                         Some game.

               The wind starts blowing again.

                                     CEDRIC
                         Go. Take it, you saved me!

                                     HARRY
                         Together, on three. One, two, three!
 
                         
               
               EXT. GRAVEYARD

               Harry and Cedric have ported to a graveyard. 

                                     CEDRIC
                         You ok?

                                     HARRY
                         Yeah, you?

                                     CEDRIC
                         Where are we?

                                     HARRY
                         I've been here before.

                                     CEDRIC
                         It's a portkey. Harry the cup is a portkey.
 
                         
                                     HARRY
                         I've been here before in a dream. Cedric, 
                         we have to get back to the cup? Now!
 
                         
                                     CEDRIC
                         What are you talking about?

               Harry lets out a shout and holds his head, he is in pain.

                                     CEDRIC
                         What is it?

                                     HARRY
                         Get back to the cup!

               We see Wormtail and Voldemort nearby. 

                                     CEDRIC
                         Who are you? What do you want?

                                     VOLDEMORT
                         Kill the spare.

               Wormtail casts a spell and kills Cedric.

                                     HARRY
                         Cedric!

               Cedric lays dead on the ground.

               Wormtail pulls Harry closer, a status grabs hold of Harry and 
               traps him.
 
                                     VOLDEMORT
                         Do it, now!

               Wormtail drops something into a cauldron, Harry watches on. 
 
               
                                     WORMTAIL
                         Bones of the father, unwillingly given. 
                         
 
               A bone hovers in the air under Wormtail's control, he drops it 
               into the cauldron.
 
                                     WORMTAIL
                         Flesh of the servent willingly sacrificed. 
                         
 
               He takes a knife and slashes his arm over the cauldron.

                                     WORMTAIL
                         Blood of the enemy forcibly taken.
 
                         
               He takes the knife to Harry and cuts at his arm. Harry shouts. 
               Wormtail takes the knife over to the cauldron and lets the drops 
               fall into it.
 
                                     WORMTAIL
                         The dark lord shall rise again. 

               The cauldron bursts into flame and a reformed Voldemort emerges.
 
               
                                     VOLDEMORT
                         My wand Wormtail.

               Wormtail hands him the wand and bows deeply.

                                     VOLDEMORT
                         Hold out your arm.

                                     WORMTAIL
                         Master. Thank you master.

                                     VOLDEMORT
                         The other arm Wormtail.

               Wormtail looks concerned, but does it anyway. Voldemort sticks 
               the wand into Wormtail's arm. The sky changes, others have been 
               summoned.
 
                                     VOLDEMORT
                         Welcome my friends. Thirty years it's 
                         been, and yet you stand before me as 
                         though it were only yesterday. I confess 
                         myself disappointed, not one of you 
                         tried to find me. 
 
               Voldemort begins slashing angrily at the hooded figures. 

                                     VOLDEMORT
                         Not even you, Lucius. 

                                     LUCIUS
                         My lord. Had I detected any sign or 
                         even a whisper of your whereabouts.
 
                         
                                     VOLDEMORT
                         There were signs my friend, and more 
                         than whispers. 
 
                                     LUCIUS
                         I assure you I never renounced the old 
                         ways. The face I have been obliged to 
                         present each day since your absence, 
                         that was my true mask.
 
                                     WORMTAIL
                         I returned.

                                     VOLDEMORT
                         Out of fear, not loyalty. Still you 
                         have proved yourself useful these past 
                         few months Wormtail.
 
               Voldemort grants Wormtail a new hand.

                                     WORMTAIL
                         Thank you master, thank you.

                                     VOLDEMORT
                         (To Cedric's corpse) Oh, such a handsome 
                         boy. 
 
                                     HARRY
                         Don't touch him.

               Harry struggles to get free.

                                     VOLDEMORT
                         Harry! I'd almost forgotten you were 
                         here. Standing on the bones of my father. 
                         I'd introduce you but word has it you're 
                         almost as famous as me these days. The 
                         boy who lived. How lies have fed your 
                         legend Harry. Shall I reveal what really 
                         happened that night thirteen years ago? 
                         Shall I divulge how I truly lost my 
                         powers? It was love. You see when dear 
                         sweet Lily Potter gave her life for 
                         her only son she provided the ultimate 
                         protection. I could not touch you. It 
                         was old magic, something I should have 
                         forseen. But no matter, no matter. Things 
                         have changed, I can touch you now!
 
                         
               Voldemort puts his hand on Harry's head and he screams.

                                     VOLDEMORT
                         Astonishing what a few drops of your 
                         blood will do eh Harry? Pick up your 
                         wand Potter. I said pick it up, get 
                         up. Get up! You've been taught how to 
                         duel I presume yes? First we bow to 
                         each other. Come on now Harry the niceties 
                         must be observed, Dumbledore would not 
                         want you to forget your manners now 
                         would he? I said bow!
 
               Voldemort forces Harry to bow with magic.

                                     VOLDEMORT
                         That's better. And now...

               Voldemort casts at Harry and he wriggles in pain.

                                     VOLDEMORT
                         Atta boy Harry, your parents would be 
                         proud. Especially your filthy mongrel 
                         mother. I'm going to kill you Harry 
                         Potter, I'm going to destroy you. After 
                         tonight no one will ever again question 
                         my powers. After tonight if they speak 
                         of you they'll speak only of how you 
                         begged for death, and I being a merciful 
                         lord obliged. Get up.
 
               Voldemort pulls Harry to his feet, Harry begins to move away.
 
               
                                     VOLDEMORT
                         Don't you turn your back on me Harry 
                         Potter I want you to look at me when 
                         I kill you, I want to see the lights 
                         leave your eyes.
 
               Harry takes steps toward Voldemort.

                                     HARRY
                         Have it your way.

               They both cast and their streams of magic meet. They both struggle.
 
               
                                     VOLDEMORT
                         Do nothing. He is mine to finish. He's 
                         mine!
 
               Shapes form in the surrounding magical energy. We hear Dumbledore's 
               voice.
 
                                     HARRY'S DAD
                         (voice) Harry when the connection is 
                         broken you must get to the portkey. 
                         We can delay it for a moment to give 
                         you time but only a moment, do you understand?
 
                         
                                     CEDRIC
                         (voice) Harry take my body back will 
                         you? Take my body back to my father.
 
                         
                                     HARRY'S MOTHER
                         (voice) Let go. Sweetheart you're ready. 
                         Let go! Let go!
 
               The connection breaks, Harry runs over to Cedric's body and summons 
               the cup over to them. In an instant the port out. Voldemort looks 
               angry.
 
                                     VOLDEMORT
                         No!

               
               EXT. ARENA

               Back at the arena Harry appears with Cedric's body. The crowd 
               don't understand what has taken place and they all cheer, triumphant 
               music starts to play. Harry weeps on Cedric's body. 
 
                                     DUMBLEDORE
                         Harry! Harry!

               Dumbledore tries to prize Harry from Cedric's body.

                                     DUMBLEDORE
                         Tell me what happened!

                                     HARRY
                         He's back, he's back! Voldemort's back. 
                         Cedric, he asked me to bring his body 
                         back. I couldn't leave him, not there.
 
                         
                                     DUMBLEDORE
                         It's alright Harry. It's alright, he's 
                         home, you both are.
 
                                     FUDGE
                         Keep everybody in their seats. A boy 
                         has just been killed. The body must 
                         be moved Dumbledore, there are... too 
                         many people.
 
                                     AMOS
                         Let me through! That's my son! My boy!
 
                         
               Amos breaks down wailing. The crowd look on distraught.

               
               INT. DARKENED ROOM

               Mad-Eye Moody enters and closes the door behind him. Harry is 
               in the room still sobbing. They sit. 
 
                                     MAD-EYE
                         Are you alright Potter?

               Harry nods.

                                     MAD-EYE
                         Does it hurt?

                                     HARRY
                         Not so much now.

                                     MAD-EYE
                         I'd better take a look at it.

               We see Harry's arm, it has a skull and snake marking.

                                     HARRY
                         The cup was a portkey. Someone had bewitched 
                         it.
 
                                     MAD-EYE
                         What was it like? What was he like?
 
                         
                                     HARRY
                         Who?

                                     MAD-EYE
                         The dark lord. What was it like to stand 
                         in his presence?
 
                                     HARRY
                         I dunno. It was like I'd fallen into 
                         one of my dreams. One of my nightmares. 
                         
 
               Mad-Eye starts shaking and struggling for air, he reaches for 
               his bottle but it's empty. He rushes to a chest with other bottles 
               and struggles to find one.
 
                                     MAD-EYE
                         Were there others? In the graveyard, 
                         were there others?
 
                                     HARRY
                         Um. I don't think I said anything about 
                         a graveyard Professor.
 
                                     MAD-EYE
                         Marvellous creatures dragons aren't 
                         they? Do you think that miserable oaf 
                         would have led you into the woods if 
                         I hadn't suggested it? Do you think 
                         Cedric Diggory would have told you to 
                         hold the egg under the water if I hadn't 
                         have told him first myself? Do you think 
                         Neville Longbottom the witless wonder 
                         could have provided you with gilliweed 
                         if I hadn't have given him the book 
                         that led you straight to it? Huh??
 
                         
                                     HARRY
                         It was you from the beginning. You put 
                         my name in the goblet of fire. You bewitched 
                         Krum. But...
 
               Mad-Eye makes sobbing noises making fun of Harry.

                                     MAD-EYE
                         You won because I made it so Potter. 
                         You ended up in that graveyard tonight 
                         because it was meant to be so. And now 
                         the deed is done. The blood that runs 
                         through these veins runs within the 
                         dark lord. Imagine how he will reward 
                         me when he learns that I have once and 
                         for all silenced the great Harry Potter.
 
                         
               A flash of magic occurs and Mad-Eye is knocked into the wall. 
               Dumbledore and Severus come rushing in. Dumbledore takes Mad-Eye 
               by the neck...
 
                                     DUMBLEDORE
                         Severus...

               Severus administers some veritaserum. Mad-Eye wriggles demonically.
 
               
                                     DUMBLEDORE
                         Do you know who I am?

                                     MAD-EYE
                         Albus Dumbledore.

                                     DUMBLEDORE
                         Are you Alastor Moody? Are ya?

                                     MAD-EYE
                         No.

                                     DUMBLEDORE
                         Is he in this room? Is he in this room?
 
                         
               We see a nod.

                                     DUMBLEDORE
                         Harry get away from there!

               Dumbledore approaches the chest. The chest opens, it contains 
               a series of smaller chests. When the final chest is open we see 
               that there's a pit within holding a man the real Alastor Moody.
 
               
                                     DUMBLEDORE
                         Are you alright Alastor?

                                     ALASTOR
                         I'm sorry Albus.

                                     HARRY
                         That's Moody, but then who's...?

               Dumbledore holds up one of Mad-Eye's Bottles.

                                     SEVERUS
                         Polyjuice potion.

                                     DUMBLEDORE
                         Now we know who's been stealing it from 
                         your store Severus.
 
               Dumbledore looks into the pit.

                                     DUMBLEDORE
                         We'll get you up in a minute.

               Alastor Moody groans. The Mad-Eye Moody they have captive in 
               a chair begins to twitch about restlessly making strange noises. 
               He appears to be transforming. He rips off his fake eyepiece 
               which falls on the floor, we see that he's transformed into Barty 
               Crouch Junior.
 
                                     DUMBLEDORE
                         Barty Crouch Junior.

                                     BARTY JR
                         I'll show you mine if you show me yours.
 
                         
               Barty Jr rolls up his sleeve to reveal a skull and snake marking.
 
               
                                     DUMBLEDORE
                         Your arm Harry.

                                     BARTY JR
                         You know what this means don't you? 
                         He's back. Lord Voldemort has returned.
 
                         
                                     DUMBLEDORE
                         Send an owl to Azkaban, think they'll 
                         find they're missing a prisoner.

                         I'll be welcomed back like a hero.

                         Perhaps. Personally I've never had much 
                         time for heroes.
 
               
               INT. ASSEMBLY ROOM

                                     DUMBLEDORE
                         (Speaking to all pupils) Today we acknowledge 
                         a really terrible loss. Cedric Diggory 
                         was as you all know, exceptionally hard 
                         working, intricately fair minded. And 
                         most importantly a fierce fierce friend. 
                         I think therefore you have the right 
                         to know exactly how he died. You see, 
                         Cedric Diggory was murdered by Lord 
                         Voldemort. The ministry of magic does 
                         not wish me to tell you this. But not 
                         to do so I think would be an insult 
                         to his memory. Now the pain we all feel 
                         at this dreadful loss reminds me, reminds 
                         us that while we may come from different 
                         places and speak in different tongues, 
                         our hearts beat as one. In light of 
                         recent events the bonds of friendship 
                         we made this year will be more important 
                         than ever. Remember that and Cedric 
                         Diggory will not have died in vain, 
                         you remember that. And we'll celebrate 
                         a boy who was kind and honest and brave 
                         and true right to the very end.
 
               
               INT. BEDROOM

               Harry is sitting on a bed, Dumbledore walks in.

                                     DUMBLEDORE
                         I never liked these curtains. Set them 
                         on fire in my fourth year, by accident 
                         of course. I put you in terrible danger 
                         this year Harry I'm sorry.
 
                                     HARRY
                         Professor, when I was in the graveyard 
                         there was a moment... um... when Voldemort's 
                         wand and mine sort of connected.
 
                                     DUMBLEDORE
                         Priorium Contatum. You saw your parents 
                         that night didn't you? They reappeared.
 
                         
               Harry nods.

                                     DUMBLEDORE
                         No spell can reawaken the dead Harry 
                         I trust you know that. Dark and diffiult 
                         times lie ahead. Soon we must all face 
                         the choice between what is right what 
                         is easy. But remember this, you have 
                         friends here. You're not alone.
 
               
               EXT. HOGWARTS

               There's a large crowd gathered, the pupils are going home. Viktor 
               Krum gives Hermione a kiss and hands her some paper.
 
                                     VIKTOR
                         Write to me. Promise.

                                     HERMIONE
                         Bye.

               Ron is sitting alone. The french sisters approach him, they both 
               in turn give him a kiss on the head.
 
                                     FLEUR
                         Au revoir Ron.

               The Beauxbatons girls leave in uniform, the crowd applauds. The 
               Durmstrang boys leave too, shaking hands as they go.

                         Do you think we'll ever just have a 
                         quiet year at Hogwarts?
 
                                     HERMIONE
                         No.

                                     HARRY
                         No I don't think so.

                                     HERMIONE
                         Everything's going to change now isn't 
                         it?
 
                                     HARRY
                         Yes.

                                     HERMIONE
                         Promise you'll write this summer. Both 
                         of you.

                         Well I won't. You know I won't!

                                     HERMIONE
                         Harry will won't you?

                                     HARRY
                         Yeah. Every week.

               They look over the balcony, the flying horses pulling a carriage 
               head off into the distance. The Bulgarians' ship goes underwater.
 
               
               
               FADE OUT.
