[walks in front of Harry with a straight face] Yes?
[hesitates and looks at his scarred hand] Nothing.
[bends down] That's right. Because deep down you know that you deserve to be punished. Don't you Mr. Potter?
[Dumbledore has arrived at Harry's trial, which was moved up]
Oh! Albus... I see you got our notice about the time change of the hearing...
I must have missed it; but by a happy mistake, I arrived at the Ministry three hours early.
You sent for me, Headmistress?
Ah, yes. The time has come for answers, whether he wants to give them or not. Have you bought the Veritaserum?
I'm afraid you have used up all my stores interrogating students, the last of it on Miss Chang. Unless you wish to poison Potter - and I assure you, I would have the greatest sympathy if you did - I cannot help you.
It appears there is a connection between the Dark Lord's mind and your own. Whether he is, as yet, aware of this connection is for the moment unclear. Pray he remains ignorant.
You mean if he knows about it then, he'll be able to read my mind.
Read it, control it, unhinge it. In the past it was often the Dark Lord's pleasure to invade the minds of his victims, creating visions designed to torture them into madness. Only after extracting the last exquisite ounce of agony, only when he had them litterly begging for death would he finally... kill them. Used properly, the power of Occlumency will help shield you from access or influence. In these lessons I will attempt to penetrate your mind. You will attempt to resist. Prepare yourself! Legillimens!
So how are we going to get to London?
Look, it's not that I don't appreciate everything you've done, all of you, but - but I've got you into enough trouble as it is. [walks past everyone]
Dumbledore's Army's supposed to be about doing something real. [Harry stops turns around to face them]
Or was all that just words to you?
...Maybe you don't have to do this all by yourself, mate.
...So how are we going to get to London?
We fly, of course.
