Harry had the distinct impression that she could smell him.. . . Why had he filled that bath with so much perfumed foam?
"Well... anyway... I'd try the egg in the water. That's what Cedric Diggory did."
"Come on!" Parvati hissed. "We're supposed to dance!"
"Well, I just thought I'd congratulate you again on your splendid performance against that Horntail, Harry," said Bagman. "Really superb."
Hermione's mouth fell open.
"Animal magnetism," said Ron gloomily, pulling stray threads out of his cuffs.
"Harry Potter must wake up, sir!"
The merpeople had grayish skin and long, wild, dark green hair. Their eyes were yellow, as were their broken teeth, and they wore thick ropes of pebbles around their necks. They leered at Harry as he swam past; one or two of them emerged from their caves to watch him better, their powerful, silver fish tails beating the water, spears clutched in their hands.

"Well, I dunno if that's what Dumbledore asked him to do, but he's definitely doing it,"
So Harry, thinking that he would soon have had enough of the library to last him a lifetime, buried himself once more among the dusty volumes, looking for any spell that might enable a human to survive without oxygen. However, though he, Ron, and Hermione searched through their lunchtimes, evenings, and whole weekends - though Harry asked Professor McGonagall for a note of permission to use the Restricted Section, and even asked the irritable, vulture-like librarian. Madam Pince, for help - they found nothing whatsoever that would enable Harry to spend an hour underwater and live to tell the tale.;
