Episode ThirteenMature

Scene 1:

[Harry and the gang are in library, frantically flipping through books.]

Hermione:I cannot (s) believe you spent all that time sunbathing instead of preparing for the next task.

Harry:Woah, woah, woah, (Harry places a hand on her shoulder) It takes time to look this good.

Ron:But how did you (s) work out the clue, Harry?

[Harry and Hermione drop what they are doing, and stare at Ron.]

Hermione:He hasn’t, Ron. That’s we why are (s) here.

Ron:(s away) … oh.

Harry:But we do know that (s) I must be underwater for a while.

Ron:Right. (s) And we’ve solved the mystery once again yay!

[Harry and Hermione look at each other, and then back at Ron.]

Hermione:Are you (s) alright, Ron?

Ron:Well, I took some stuff out of Snape’s pockets and then I ate them.

Harry:WHAT.

Hermione:RON, YOU IDIOT.

Ron:(s) EVERYONE’S YELLING SO I WANT TO YELL TOO.

Hermione:Emergency chloroform?

Ron:DID YOU JUST SAY WHAT I THOUGHT YOU JUST SAID?

Harry:Emergency chloroform.

Ron:OH NO THIS IS BAD VERY BAD HOW AM I-

[Hermione and Harry press a cloth to Ron’s mouth. Ron inhales deeply and passes out.]

Hermione: Well.

[Fred and George enter.]

Fred:McGonagall’s looking for Weasley and Granger.

George:And said not to worry, they’ll be in no danger.

Harry:But Ron’s (s) unconscious.

Fred:That does not matter.

George:He’s as mad as a hatter.

Hermione:(s) I’ll carry him.

[Hermione, carrying Ron, Fred and George leave the library leaving Harry alone.]

Harry:Right, I (s) must find a spell to-

[Harry collapses, and falls asleep. Behind him stands Madame Pince, holding a large book.]

Pince:That’ll teach you to talk in my library.

[Pince wanders off. Harry snores. Dramatic music.]

Scene 2:

[In the staffroom. Moody and McGonagall are chatting over tea.]

Moody:… and then he had this zipper on his forehead, right, so he opened it and voila! Standing in front of me is a-

[There is a knock on the door.]

McGonagall:Come in.

[Draco enters.]

Draco:You wanted me, sir?

Moody:Yes, that’s right, I need you to, uh, (searches around the room frantically) find out what this does.

[Moody reaches into his pocket and takes out a strange lump of metal. He throws the object at Draco, who catches it.]

Draco:You can rely (s) on me, sir!

[Draco begins to examine the object.]

Moody:(loudly) NOW, I WONDER HOW HARRY IS EVER GOING TO SURVIVE THE SECOND TASK BECAUSE IT IS MOSTLY UNDERWATER.

McGonagall:I personally hope he drowns (sips tea).  One less paper I need to mark.

Moody:(loudly) IF I WAS HIM, I WOULD USE GILLYWEED, WHICH CAN BE FOUND EASILY IF YOU KNOW WHERE TO LOOK.

McGonagall:Alastor, are you alright?

Moody:(loudly) WHY, IF YOU JUST TOLD A HOUSE ELF, THEY WOULD KNOW WHAT TO DO.

Draco:(drops object) I must (s) summon Dobby!

[Draco rushes out.]

McGonagall:What was all that?

Moody:Why, whatever do you mean? (sips tea)

[Dramatic music.]

Scene 3:

[Harry is rushing through the halls of Hogwarts.]

Harry:Oh, bollocks, the task is meant to start in seven minutes how am I going to get there on time?

[Harry dodges some Hufflepuffs, who call out “HEY!”]

Harry:I hope this Gillyweed Dobby gave me works.

[Harry reaches the shore of the lake, gasping for breath. The other three champions are already there, stretching.]

Bagman:All right there, Harry?

[Harry can’t breathe, so he doesn’t reply.]

Bagman:Jolly good.

[Bagman takes a deep breath.]

Bagman:Sonorus. (Begins to shout) WELCOME, TO THE SECOND TASK! MAY THE ODDS BE EVER IN YOUR FAVOUR. 3, 2, 1, GO!

Harry:What?

[A cannon soundsand Krum, Fleur and Cedric leap into the water.]

Harry:Oh, right.

[Harry wades into the water. He eats the gillyweed.]

Harry:That’s weird, I feel fi-

[Harry screams and falls into the water, clutching his neck. Everyone gasps.]

McGonagall:How unfortunate.

[Dramatic music.]

Scene 4:

[Draco and the gang are with the spectators, examining the lake.]

Goyle:Well, I’m (s) bored.

Crabbe:Same.

Draco:But, but what if (s) he’s truly dead?

Goyle:I don’t think so, no one seems worried.

[Draco hits Goyle in the face.]

Draco:THAT’S BECAUSE THEY DON’T CARE AS MUCH AS I DO.

Crabbe:I thought we were over this.

Draco:NEVER!

Scene 5:

[Harry is “underwater”, being half fish. The four people who they must rescue are tied up beside him.]

Harry:OH NO, THEY’RE ALL GOING (s) TO DIE!

[Harry starts to untie all of the knots, but a mermaid approaches him.]

Mermaid:Dude, you’re not meant to do that.

Harry:TRY AND STOP (s) ME.

[The mermaid comes up and starts to hug Harry.]

Harry:What are you- STOP THAT.

Mermaid:Man, you just need love.

Harry:I AM VERY UNCOMFORTABLE.

[Cedric comes along, looking completely normal.]

Harry:(frowns) Cedric, how come you’re alive and not drowning?

Cedric:(smiles) Technically, I don’t need to breathe.

Harry:WHAT.

[Cedric smiles at him, grabs Cho and swims off.]

Harry:WHAT.

[Krum comes along, half shark.]

Harry:Krum, you need to help me!

[Krum ignores Harry and grabs Hermione, untying her first and carrying her in his arms.]

Harry:KRUM, I AM IN THE EMBRACE OF A MERMAID AND I CANNOT GET OUT.

Mermaid:Hush, man.

[Krum eats the mermaid.]

Harry:Well, that was much better. (s) Thanks, Shark Boy!

[Krum swims off.]

Harry:Now back to my first dilemma. (s) Fleur is French, so she probably will never come.

[Cuts to Fleur, on the beach.]

Fleur:Je suis not going swimming dans la lac sans mon Chanel suit!

[Cuts back to Harry.]

Harry:Hmm…

[Harry grabs Ron and Fleur’s sister, and starts to swim back to shore.]

Harry:Merlin, you two are so freaking (s) heavy.

[Dramatic music.]

Scene 6:

[Draco and the gang are still on the shore.]

Crabbe:Draco, get up.

Draco:YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND. (s) HE IS DEAD.

Goyle:(s) But what about our feelings?

Draco:What (s) about them?

Crabbe:It pains us (s) so to see you like this.

Goyle:And we only want your (s) true happiness.

Draco:I, I-

Bagman:AND THERE IS POTTER, WITH, WHAT’S THIS? TWO CONTESTANTS!

[Harry appears at the edge, carrying Ron and Fleur’s Sister.]

Harry:Oh. My. God. (collapses).

Fleur:(rushes over) Oh mon Dieu! Tu es tres fort, monsieur.

[Fleur pashes Ron.]

Ron:… okay.

[Hermione comes rushes up.]

Hermione:You did it, Harry. You’ve completed the Second Task!

Harry:(groans) I need medical attention.

Ron:Yeah! (s) Way to go, Harry!

Harry:Please…

[Harry’s eyes close as he lies there, unmoving. Triumphant music.]
