Extract from Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them: The Original Screenplay

By J.K. Rowling

CREDENCE has found a toy wand. He stares, unable to draw his eyes from it.

Behind him, MODESTY enters.

MODESTY
Whatchoo doin’, Credence?

CREDENCE bangs his head on the bed in his haste to get out. He emerges, dusty and scared. He is relieved to see that it is only MODESTY but she, on seeing the wand, is terrified.

CREDENCE
Where’d you get this?

MODESTY
(frightened whisper)
Give it back, Credence. It’s just a toy!

The door bangs open. MARY LOU enters. Her gaze travels from MODESTY to CREDENCE and the toy wand – she is angrier than we have ever seen her.

MARY LOU
(to CREDENCE)
What is this?
