Ron: I know what that is! But Hagrid, how did you get one?
Hagrid: I won it! Off a stranger I met in the pub. Seemed quite glad to be
rid of it, as a matter of fact.
Hermione: Is that a dragon?
Ron: That's not just a dragon! That's a Norwegian Ridgeback! My brother
Charlie works with these in Romania.
Hagrid: Isn't he beautiful? Oh bless him, look, he knows his mummy! Hello,
Hagrid: Yeah. Why he's gotta have a name, got he? Don't you, Norbert? Te de
de de de! Oh! Woah! Woah! He'll have to be trained up a bit of course. Who's
Hagrid: Oh, dear.
Harry: Hagrid always wanted a dragon. He told me so the first time I ever met
Ron: It's crazy! And worse Malfoy knows.
Hermione: I don't understand. Is that bad?
Ron: It's bad.
McGonagall: Good evening. Nothing, I repeat, nothing gives a student the
right to walk about the school at night. Therefore as punishment for your
actions, 50 points will be taken.
McGonagall: Each. And to ensure it doesn't happen again, all four of you will
Malfoy: Excuse me, Professor. Perhaps I heard you wrong. I thought you said
the four of us.
McGonagall: No you heard me correctly, Mr. Malfoy. You see, honorable as your
intentions were, you, too, were out of bed after
hours. You will join your classmates in detention.
Filch: A pity they let the old punishments die. Was a time detention was
found you hanging by your thumbs in the dungeons. God, I'll miss the screaming.
You'll be serving detention with Hagrid tonight. He's got a little job to do
inside the Dark Forest. A sorry lot, this, Hagrid. Oh good God, man,
you're not still on about that
bloody dragon, are you?
Hagrid: Norbert's gone. Dumbledore sent him off to Romania to live in a
Hermione: Well, that's good, isn't it? He'll be with his own kind.
Hagrid: Yeah, but what if he don't like Romania? What if the other dragons
are mean to him? He's only a baby after all.
Filch: Oh, for God's sake, pull yourself
together, man. You're going into the Forest after all. Got to
have your wits about you.
Malfoy: The Forest? I thought that was a joke. We can't go in there. Students
aren't allowed. And there are... werewolves!
Filch: Ah, there's more than werewolves in those trees, lad. You can be sure
of that. Nighty- night.
Hagrid: Right, let's go.
1. After hours
意思是"After normal working hours, after closing time"，也表示"after legal or
established opening hours"，例如：I haven't time while the shop is open, but I can
see you after hours. 像那种after-hours club 指的就是a drinking club that remained
open later than similar establishments.
2. Be on
Be on 有几个常用的意思，我们来看一下：
1) Be taking medication or an illegal drug，例如：Are you on some antibiotic?
2）Be in favor of something or willing to participate，例如：We're going dancing
after the play--are you on? 3）Appear in a show, on T.V. or radio，例如：The news
won't be on tonight.
在这里，这个be on 和about 连用，表示"反复地/不停地谈论"，例如：You mean, the kind of thing Carol is
always on about.
