In Occlumency lessons, Harry sees a vision of his parents.
He tells Snape those memories are private.
Oh, not to Voldemort, Snape tells him. Harry's just like his father—lazy, arrogant, and weak.
Harry is ticked. Snape better not be talking smack about his father. He was an awesome guy.
No, Snape tells Harry, his father was a straight up jerk. Just like Sirius.
Harry's finally had it with Snape. He gets mad and casts a spell to go into Snape's mind and sees something pretty unpleasant.
Harry sees a memory of his father taunting Snape when they were both about fifteen years old at Hogwarts. James hoists Snape upside down in the air as the crowd around him laughs and he threatens to take off "Snivelly's trousers."
Harry is shaken when he comes out of the memory. Why would his father be so cruel?
Snape tells him their lessons are over and that Harry needs to get out of his office.
In the hall, Harry runs into Fred and George Weasley comforting another member of Dumbledore's Army.
When Umbridge tells them that naughty children deserve to be punished Fred and George mention that their future lies outside the world of academia. Oh, this should be good.
