"I know, but I promised my mum I'd go so I could learn spells to protect myself on the job," Greg explains, "and save people who deserve it." "So Hufflepuff or Gryffindor?" The hat asks him. "Which do you think will get me the attention of that cute boy you just put in Ravenclaw?" Greg replies. "GRYFFINDOR!" The hat shouts. "Thank you," Greg whispers.
