Scene 9

Scene 9

  • At dinner, there are reports of Sirius being sighted in the area.
  • But don't worry. The Dementors are on guard. They kill plants just by walking by. We hope Hogwarts has the budget for extra gardeners this term.
  • In Defense against the Dark Class, there's a boggart inside a wardrobe.
  • What does it look like? Is it something you find inside your nose? No, that's a booger.
  • Lupin teaches them the riddikulus charm to repel boggarts.
  • But what boggarts really hate is laughter. Every time you watch Broad City, a boggart cries.
  • Lupin brings Neville forward for a demonstration.

LUPIN: I want you to imagine Professor Snape in your grandmother's clothes.

  • The wardrobe opens, and out comes Snape.
  • Neville uses the charm to transform his black robes into his grandmother's furs. Frankly, Snape looks fab in that getup.
  • A comic montage of shape-shifting follows.
  • When it's Harry's turn, the boggart takes the form of a Dementor.
  • Lupin jumps in to defend him. His fear? The full moon.
  • Either he's a werewolf, or he's afraid of Snape bending over and lifting his robes.
  • Lupin sends the evil scary moon away with a riddikulus charm, and we're back to normal.
  • Or as normal as things get at Hogwarts.
