Hermione Granger: Oh, Harry! Are you all right? We overheard them talking about the dementor attack. You must tell us everything. Ron Weasley: Let the man breathe, Hermione. Hermione Granger: And this hearing at the Ministry. It's just outrageous! I've looked it up, they simply can't expel you. It's completely unfair! Harry Potter: There's a lot of that going around, Hermione. So what is this place? Ron Weasley: Headquarters. Hermione Granger: Of the Order of the Phoenix. It's a secret society. Dumbledore formed it back when they first fought You-Know-Who. Harry Potter: You couldn't have put this in a letter, I suppose. I've gone all summer without a scrap of news. Ron Weasley: We wanted to tell you, mate. Really, we did. Only... Harry Potter: Only what? Hermione Granger: Only Dumbledore made us swear that we wouldn't tell you anything. Harry Potter: [pause] Dumbledore said that? But why would he want to keep me in the dark? Maybe I could help. After all, I'm the one who saw Voldemort return, I'm the one who fought him, I'm the one who saw Cedric Diggory get killed!


Harry walks in, Hermione runs to him and hugs him. They fill Harry in, after which he is not happy.
