“Very gratifying,” said Dumbledore mildly. “We all like appreciation for our own hard work, of course. But you must have had an
accomplice, all the same . . . someone in Hogsmeade, someone
who was able to slip Katie the — the — aaaah . . .”
Dumbledore closed his eyes again and nodded, as though he was
about to fall asleep. “. . . of course . . . Rosmerta. How long has she
been under the Imperius Curse?”
“Got there at last, have you?” Malfoy taunted...

Hog’s Head . . . or I appear to. It is as good a way as any of disguising
one’s true destination.”
...“Good evening, Rosmerta, good evening . . . forgive me, I’m off
