[Harry knocks on the door of Professor Slughorn's room]
I'm sorry, sir. I wouldn't bother you if it weren't essential.
What's the matter with Wenby?
Very powerful love potion.
Very well. Better bring him in. I'd have thought you could have whipped up a remedy for this in no time, Harry.
I'd have thought that this called for a more practised hand, sir.
[Ron wraps his arms around Professor Slughorn and looks at him romantically]
Hello Darling. Fancy a drink?
Perhaps you're right.
- I'm sorry, sir.
I was just admiring your hourglass.
A most intriguing object.
The sand runs in accordance
with the quality of the conversation.
If it is stimulating, the sand runs slowly.
- If it is not...
- I think I'll be going.
You have nothing to fear, dear boy.
As to some of your classmates...
...well, let's just say they're unlikely
to make the shelf.
The shelf, sir?
Anyone who aspires to be anyone
hopes to end up here.
But then again, you already are someone,
aren't you, Harry?
Did Voldemort ever make the shelf, sir?
You knew him, didn't you, sir,
Tom Riddle? You were his teacher.
Mr. Riddle had a number of teachers
whilst here at Hogwarts.
What was he like?
I'm sorry, sir. Forgive me.
He killed my parents.
It's only natural
you should want to know more.
