Ron: I have to admit I thought I was going to miss that last one. I hope Cormac's not taking it too hard. He's got a bit of a thing for you, Hermione... Cormac.
Hermione: He's vile.
Harry: Have you ever heard of the spell, Sectumsempra?
Hermione: No, I haven't. If you had a shred of self-respect, you'd hand that book in.
Ron: Not bloody likely. He's top of the class. He's even better than you, Hermione. Slughorn thinks he's a genius.
Hermione: I'd like to know whose that book was. Let's have a look, shall we?
Hermione: Why not?
Harry: The binding is fragile.
Hermione: "The binding is fragile"?
Ginny: Who's the Half-Blood Prince? Who? That's what it says right here. This book is property of the Half-Blood Prince.
Hermione: For weeks, you carry around this book. Practically, sleep with it, and yet you have no desire to find out who the Half-Blood Prince is.
Harry: I didn't say I wasn't curious and I don't sleep with it.
Ron: Well, it's true. Well, I got a nice chat before I go to bed. And all you do is that bloody book. It's like being with Hermione.
Hermione: Well, I was curious so, I went to...
Harry & Ron: The library? And?
Hermione: And nothing. I couldn't find a reference anywhere to the Half-Blood Prince.
Ron: There we go. That settles it, then.
Dwarf: Yeah, uh...hoping to find you in the Three Broomsticks. Uh no, emergency choir practice from the freighthorse.
Harry: Does anyone fancy a butterbeer?
Slughorn: A chum of mine was sledging down Clagsby Hill. We had a very long, home-made Norwegian style sledge. We hurtled down, we hit what most...
Harry: Ron, sit aside me.
Waiter: Something to drink?
Hermione: Three butterbeers and some ginger in mine, please.
Ron: Oh, bloody hell.
Hermione: Ron, see they're only holding hands. And snogging.
Ron: I'd like to leave.
Hermione: What? You can't be serious.
Ron: That happens to be my sister.
Hermione: So? What if she looked at me and saw you snogging me? Would you expect her to get up and leave?
Slughorn: Hey, my boy.
Harry: So wonderful to see you.
Slughorn: And you, and you.
Harry: So what brings you here?
Slughorn: Oh, Three Broomsticks and I go way back further than I care to admit. could remember when it was One Broomstick. All hands on deck, Granger. Listen, my boy, in the old days, I used to throw together the occassional supper party. Select a student or two. Would you be game?
Harry: I consider it an honor, sir.
Slughorn: You'd be welcome too, Granger.
Hermione: I'd be delighted, sir.
Slughorn: Splendid! Look for my owl. Good to see you, Wallenby.
