Dumbledore: Witness for the defense, Albus Percival Wulfric...Brian...Dumbledore.
Fudge: You, you got our message that the time and place of the hearing had been changed, did you?
Dumbledore: I must have missed it. But by a happy mistake I arrived at the Ministry three hours early.
[Pause]
Dumbledore: Charges?
Fudge:The charges against the accused are as follows; that he did knowingly and in full awareness of the illegality of his actions, produced a Patronus charm in the presence of a Muggle. Do you deny producing said Patronus?
Harry: No, I--
Fudge: [Interrupting Harry] And you were aware that you were forbidden to use magic outside school while under the age of seventeen?
Harry: Yes.
Conrelius Fudge: Witches and wizards of the Wizengamot--
Harry: I was only doing it because of the Dementors!
Amelia Bones: Dementors? In Little Whinging?
Fudge: That's quite clever. Muggles can't see Dementors, can they boy? Highly convenient.
Harry: I'm not lying, there were two of them and if I hadn't--
Fudge: [Interrupting Harry] Enough! I'm sorry to interrupt what I'm sure would have been a very well reversed story, but since you can produce no witnesses of the event--
Dumbledore: Pardon me Minister, but as it happens we can.
