[Slughorn is snipping tentacular leaves through a window in the greenhouse; Harry, who is walking by, notices Slughorn and walks up behind him. Slughorn is startled]
Aaauughh!... Merlin's beard, Harry!
Oh, sorry, sir, I should've announced myself. Cleared my throat. Coughed. You probably feared I was Professor Sprout!
Yes, I did actually!... What made you think that?
Oh, well, just the general behavior, sir - the sneaking around, jumping when you saw me... Are those tentacular leaves, sir? They're very valuable, aren't they?
Ten Galleons a leaf to the right buyer!... Not that I'm familiar with any such back alley transactions, but one does hear rumors. My own interests are purely academic, of course.
Personally, these plants always kind of freak me out.
No need to disfigure me, Albus.
Well, I must say you
make a very convincing armchair, Horace.
It's all in the upholstery. I come by the
stuffing naturally. What gave me away?
- Oh, yes, introductions.
Harry, I'd like you to meet
an old friend and colleague of mine...
...well, you know who this is.
What's with all the theatrics, Horace?
You weren't, by any chance,
waiting for someone else?
I'm sure I don't know what you mean.
All right, the Death Eaters have been
trying to recruit me for over a year.
Do you know what that's like?
You can only say no so many times, so
I never stay anywhere more than a week.
Muggles who own this
are in the Canary Islands.
Well, I think we should put it back
in order for them, don't you? Mind.
That was fun.
- Do you mind if I use the loo?
- No, of course.
Don't think I don't know
why you're here, Albus.
