Harry doubled back to see who had spoken and met Professor Lupin, looking around his office door.
"Still in the showers," said Fred. "We think he's trying to drown himself."
"Hogsmeade," said Harry, in a would-be casual voice.
In an instant, Ron and Hermione had both placed hands on the top of Harry's head and forced him off his stool and under the table. Dripping with butterbeer and crouching out of sight, Harry clutched his empty tankard and watched the teachers' and Fudge's feet move toward the bar, pause, then turn and walk right toward him.
"What's the score?"

"You said it's harder if there are loads of them," said Harry.
"Here --" Lupin handed him a Chocolate Frog. "Eat this before we try again. I didn't expect you to do it your first time; in fact, I would have been astounded if you had."
"That explains a great deal," said Professor McGonagall tartly.
"How are you getting through all this stuff?" Harry asked her.
Further to our inquiry into the attack by a hippogriff on a student in your class, we have accepted the assurances of Professor Dumbledore that you bear no responsibility for the regrettable incident.
