Scott will introduce himself!
"Good morning," he says to the girl.
"I'm not that forgettable, am I?"
"I got lost. Professor Slughorn helped me find my way here. I was over near the kitchens."

"I like most things he doesn't like, and don't like the things he does. It's our special way of bonding."
"He wasn't in Slytherin. I'll be getting a letter about shaming my family soon, I bet."

"Yeah, I don't like him that much. Now I get to be here, so I won't have to see him for a while. Parents can't visit, can they?"
"Did you have breakfast?"
