[Draco is sitting at the window of the hospital wing, staring at the Quidditch pitch, bandaged up.]
Draco: Oh, how I wish I could join them. (sighs) But alas, my injuries will not permit me.
[Madam Pomfrey appears, leading Crabbe and Goyle]
Pomfrey: See? I told you he wasn’t dead.
Crabbe: (rushes to Draco’s side) Draco, are you okay?
Draco: CRABBE! (Draco embraces Crabbe) I missed you so much.
Crabbe: (flustered) I… missed you too. (Hugs back fiercely)
Goyle: It’s so good to see you (s) well.
Draco: (s)… who are you?
[The Gryffindor team are getting a pep talk from Wood]
Wood: It’s rainy. (s) But the spirit of the Gryffindor house lives on.
[Entire team stands up and cheers]
Angelina: So… so inspring. (starts to sob)
Fred: Now let’s go out and win!
George: Put Hufflepuff in the bin!
[They go out chanting]
Harry: That was (s) glittertastic, Oliver.
Oliver:Just stay on your broom, Potter.
[At the Quidditch pitch. It is raining. Hufflepuff and Gryffindor are about to play. The two captains are shaking hands]
Harry:(to Fred and George) Who’s the Hufflepuff captain.
Fred:That is Cedric Diggory.
George:Notice how he’s so sparkly.
[Madam Hooch blows her whistle. The players start “flying” around]
Harry:Now where is the snitch? (Pause) (s) There is it! Oh, no, wait that’s just Diggory’s hair. Wait, there it is!
[Harry starts to chase the snitch and is led away from pitch. Suddenly a dog appears]
Harry:(s) My death has been foretold!
[The dog runs away at the sight of approaching Dementors]
Dementor 1:oh hay vampire
Dementor 2:ar wiu gonna have sex or wta
Dementor 3:yeh I toats no everything whers hagird
Harry:I CAN’T TAKE THIS ANYMORE! (he fainst and falls off his broom)
[Cedric flies in and grabs snitch.]
Cedric:YES! (sees Harry) Oh, what a shame.
Dementor 1:hi, fello vamrpie
[Cedric screams and runs away.]
[Draco is still sitting by the window. He is talking to Crabbe. Goyle is not there.]
Draco:Why do I remember you but not Goyle?
Crabbe:Maybe it’s because we have stronger (s) feelings for each other.
Draco:I don’t- (s) what’s that?
Crabbe:Huh? (turns around) That’s a fruit bowl.
Draco:But what’s in (s) it?
[Harry is in the hospital bed. The Gryffindor Quidditch team and Hermione are gathered around. Hermione is holding the remnants of Harry’s broom)
Ron:(s) Is he breathing?
[Madam Pomfrey walks by]
[Pomfrey walks off. Harry wakes up]
Harry:What? I- Ron!
Harry:(s) Fred! (s) George!
Fred and George:(in unison and s) Harry!
Harry:(s) Oliver? Did we win?
Wood:No. Cedric got the snitch right after you fainted. Said he never saw you.
Hermione:Your broom- somehow it (s) broke. (Shows pieces of broom) It fell into the Whomping Willow.
Harry:(s) But I was nowhere near the Whomping Willow.
Ron:Why are there sparkles on it?
(Cuts to video montage of all the good times Harry had with his broom; flying with it, laughing with it, on a picinic with it by the lake)
Harry:I’d like to be alone (s) with the… remainders.
Ron:(s) I’ll stay for-
[Everyone troops out. Harry stares at broken pieces of broom. Tragic music]
[Crabbe and Goyle are sitting in the Slytherin dorms]
Goyle:Crabbe, we’ve got to make him (s) remember me.
Crabbe:(s) I agree. He’s gone… weird. He won’t stop carrying around this apple.
Goyle:There must be something we can do. (s) Anything!
Crabbe:Well, we do know one thing that heals all wounds and mends all injuries.
Crabbe:It’s risky but-
Goyle:But what? (s) What is it?
Crabbe:(s and long, dramatic pause) … Music.
[After a DADA class. Harry and the gang are packing up their books. Lupin is staring vacantly into space]
Harry:You go (s) ahead.
[Ron stomps out. Hermione hesitates, and then runs off after Ron]
Harry:Professor, can I (s) talk to you?
[Lupin does not move]
Harry:Awesome. (takes seat opposite Lupin) Did you hear about the match?
Lupin:(makes noise similar to: ) Euargh…
Harry:Then you would know about my… about my Nimbus (voice breaks)
[Lupin continues to stare at nothing]
Harry:The Dementors, (s) why do they affect me so? Worse than (s) others? Is it because the Dementors feed off bad memories and I have more than others, since my mother was killed before my eyes?
[Lupins head slumps a little]
Harry:Wow. (Pause) Also, Professor, do you think you can teach me how to defend myself against (s) Dementors?
Harry:Sweet. Next term it (s) is.
[Harry goes away. Lupin jumps in his seat]
Lupin:Huh? Must have fallen asleep. (Pause) Meh.
[Lupin goes back to sleep]
[Draco is under a tree, intensely staring at an apple. Crabbe and Goyle come along, each respectively holding a bass and a violin.]
Draco:(s) What? Can’t you see I’m busy?
Crabbe:There’s something we’d like to (s) play for you.
Goyle:We call it “Draco Really Acts Perfectly- Perhaps Lately it’s Enough”.
[Endure roughly three minutes of pure noise. Moment of silence follows]
[Draco hugs Goyle. Goyle hugs back. Crabbe decides to join in. Friendship music]
[In Gryffindor common rooms. Harry and Ron are playing cards, Hermione is reading and Ginny is sitting by the fire, staring at Harry. Dean and Seamus rush up]
Dean:(s) Guess- oh hey, Ginny.
Ginny:(blushes and mumbles something) Hey.
Harry:(testily) What do you want, (s) Dean?
Seamus:There’s a (s) Hogsmeade trip next weekend!

Harry:(s) Could it be…?
Ron:What’s an animagus?
