Ted Tonks: "I've got to say, Dirk, I'm surprised to run into you. Pleased, but surprised. Word was that you'd been caught."
Dirk Cresswell: "I was. I was halfway to Azkaban when I made a break for it. Stunned Dawlish, and nicked his broom. It was easier than you'd think; I don't reckon he's quite right at the moment. Might be Confunded. If so, I'd like to shake the hand of the witch or wizard who did it, probably saved my life."
