"T?" asked Hermione, looking appalled. "Even lower
than a D? What on earth does that stand for?" "Troll," said
George promptly. Harry laughed again, though he was not sure
whether or not George was joking. He imagined trying to conceal
from Hermione that he had received T's in all his O.W.L.s and
immediately resolved to work harder from now on.
"Yeah, Quirrell was a great teacher," said Harry loudly,
"there was just that minor drawback of him having Lord Voldemort
sticking out of the back of his head."
The chapter begins at breakfast on Monday morning, the second week of
classes. It then covers Harry's classes for Monday and Tuesday,
and ends with Hermione asking Harry to teach Defense in the Gryffindor
Common Room, Tuesday night. Since the first week of classes began on 2 September, these two days must be the 9th and 10th.
