Scene 2

Scene 2

  • Harry retreats to his room, angry at everything large Marge said about his poor dead parents.
  • That night, he drags his trunk downstairs.
  • Vernon demands Harry set Marge right, but Harry pulls his wand on Vernon.

HARRY: Anywhere's better than here.

  • You tell him, Harry.
  • Harry drags his trunk through the dark, mean streets of Little Whinging.
  • With nowhere to go, he stops for a rest in a public playground.
  • The swings start swinging by themselves, like in a Korean horror movie.
  • Or maybe a Universal Wolfman flick: a mangy dog emerges from the bushes.
  • Before it can attack, the mysterious Knight Bus emerges from thin air and welcomes Harry aboard.
  • The bus driver, guided by a shrunken head, drives through the streets wilder than a Boston driver. (No offense, Bean Towners.)
