Dumbledore is helping Harry to train for dueling. Harry makes some offhanded remarks about being spry for a corpse and Dumbledore is disturbed by his lack of interest in the world around him. They prepare for the duel.

HARRY: I’m ready.

(Harry and Dumbledore practice dueling during the song)
You're not ready for the world outside
You keep pretending, but you just can't hide
I know I said that I'd be standing by your side
But I...
Your path's unbeaten and it's all uphill
And you can meet it, but you never will
And I'm the reason that you're standing still
But I...
I wish I could say the right words
To lead you through this land.
Wish I could play the father
And take you by the hand [reaching out his hand, then pulls it back]
Wish I could stay
But now I understand
I'm standing in the way.
(As DUMBLEDORE continues singing, we cut to the magic shop. HERMIONE walks in as RON has his back turned. RON doesn't see HERMIONE).
DUMBLEDORE: Your friends’ cries, you won't hear at all
(HERMIONE walks quickly toward the back, crying, looking at the herb in her hand, begins to climb the steps to the loft.)
'Cause you know I'm here to take that call
So you just lie there when you should be standing tall
But I...
I wish I could lay your arms down
And let you rest at last
Wish I could slay your demons
But now that time has passed
Wish I could stay
We start with standing fast
But I’m standing in the way.
DUMBLEDORE: I'm just standing ... in the way.
(end )

HARRY: (turns to Dumbledore) Did you say something?

Dumbledore just looks at him.

Hermione looks in a book and sees a picture of the wildflower she had found from Ron. The text next to the picture reads: “Lethe’s Bramble. Used for augmenting spells of forgetting and mind control.” Hermione looks over at Ron, stricken, and begins to sing:

"Under Your Spell/Standing: Reprise"
I'm under your spell
God, how can this be?
Playing with my memory
You know I've been through hell
Ron, don't you see?
There'll be nothing left of me
You made me believe.
DUMBLEDORE: Believe me, I don't wanna go
DUMBLEDORE/HERMIONE: And it'll grieve me 'cause I love you so
(Ron and Harry are talking, oblivious to the singing)
DUMBLEDORE(in duet):
Wish I could say the right words
To lead you through this land
Wish I could play the father
And take you by the hand
HERMIONE(in duet):
Wish I could trust that it was just this once
But I must do what I must
I can't adjust to this disgust
We're done and I just
Wish I could stay
Wish I could stay
Wish I could stay
Wish I could stay...
(end )

Moaning Myrtle comes bursting in at the end of the song, shoving one of the merman in before her.

MYRTLE: Lookie lookie what I found.

RON: Is this the demon guy?

MYRTLE: Works for him. Has a nice little story for Harry, don’t you? (pushes the merman forward) Come on, then. Sing.

MERMAN: (speaking The mermen refused to sing) The Dark Lord has Harry’s friend hostage in the Sea Cave because she summoned him and at midnight he’s gonna take her to the Death Eaters to be his Queen.

DUMBLEDORE: What does he want?

MERMAN: (pointing to Harry) Him. Plus chaos and insanity and muggles and mudbloods burning up…

The merman swims away (The editor would like to note again that the mermen have incredible powers to move about on land)

HERMIONE: I just left her for a minute…

HARRY: It’s not your fault. Dumbledore, what’s the plan?

NEVILLE: Plan, shman, lets mount up!


(everyone turns to him, shocked)

LUNA: Ginny may have had the wrong idea in summoning the Dark Lord but I’ve read about some of these child-bride deals and they never end well. Maybe once.

RON: We’re not just gonna stay here…

DUMBLEDORE: Yes we are. Harry is going alone.

Harry leaves the D.A.D.A. classroom in order to go to the Sea Cave and save Ginny from Voldemort. Unbeknownst to him, his friends decide to come and help him, after all, and follow soon after Harry leaves. Harry reductor curses down the door of the Sea Cave. It smashes to pieces.

VOLDEMORT: Showtime! (evil laugh )
