Hermione Granger: [Walking out of Dumbledore's office, now knowing what he must do, Harry sees Ron and Hermione holding each other on the Grand Staircase. Upon hearing his footsteps, Hermione stands up to face him]Where have you been?
Ron Weasley: We thought you went to the Forest.
Harry Potter: I'm going there now.
Ron Weasley: Are you mad? No. You can't give yourself up to him.
Hermione Granger: What is it, Harry? What is it you know?
Harry Potter: There's a reason I can hear them... the Horcruxes. I think I've known for awhile. [Realization dawns on Hermione]
Harry Potter: And I think you have too.
Hermione Granger: [She begins to cry]I'll go with you!
Harry Potter: No. Kill the snake. Kill the snake and then it's just him. [Hermione runs to hug him. Harry glances over her shoulder and looks at Ron, knowing it may be the last time he ever sees either of his best friends]
