'Not a big surprise, though, is it?' said Harry. 'Not after what happened to Katie.'
"Yeah, I'm really going to tell you, because it's your business, Potter," sneered Malfoy. "You'd better hurry up, they'll be waiting for 'the Chosen Captain' — 'the Boy Who Scored' — whatever they call you these days."

"For the last time, just forget about Malfoy," Hermione told Harry firmly.
'Up here,' said Harry, and he crossed the common room and led the way through the door to the boys' staircase.
