Professor McGonagall shot a sharp look at Dumbledore and said "The owls are nothing next to the rumors that are flying around. You know what they're saying? About why he's disappeared? About what finally stopped him?" It seemed that Professor McGonagall had reached the point she was most anxious to discuss, the real reason she had been waiting on a cold, hard wall all day, for neither as a cat nor as a woman had she fixed Dumbledore with such a piercing stare as she did now. It was plain that whatever "everyone" was saying, she was not going to believe it until Dumbledore told her it was true. Dumbledore, however, was choosing another Sherbet Lemon and did not answer. "What they're saying,” she pressed on, "is that last night Voldemort turned up in Godric's Hollow. He went to find the Potters. The rumor is that Lily and James Potter are — are — that they're — dead." Dumbledore bowed his head. Professor McGonagall gasped. "Lily and James… I can't believe it… I didn't want to believe it… Oh, Albus…" Dumbledore reached out and patted her on the shoulder. "I know… I know…" he said heavily. Professor McGonagall's voice trembled as she went on. "That's not all. They're saying he tried to kill the Potter's son, Harry. But he couldn't. He couldn't kill that little boy. No one knows why, or how, but they're saying that when he couldn't kill Harry Potter, Voldemort's power somehow broke — and that's why he's gone." Dumbledore nodded glumly.
麦格教授看了邓布利多一眼说道：“猫头鹰在今天的新闻中根本算不了什么。你知道人们怎么说吗？关于他为什么失踪以及是什么制止了他？” 很显然麦格教授已经谈论到点子上来了，这也是她一整天坐在冰冷僵硬的墙上的真正原因。无论是作为一只猫还是作为一个女人她都从来没有像这样盯过邓布利多。不管别人怎么说，她都不会相信，除非这话是由邓布利多中日说出。可是邓布利多只是拿起了另一只柠檬，一言不发。 “他们说，”她紧接着说，“昨天晚上福尔得摩特在哥里克山谷出现了。他是去找波特一家。流言说莉莉和詹姆斯·波特——他们——他们死了。” 邓布利多垂下头去。麦格教授则便咽地说。 “莉莉和詹姆斯……我不相信……我不愿意相信……喔，阿布思。” 邓布利多伸出手去拍她的肩膀，“我知道了……我知道了……”他沉重地说。 麦格教授的声音颤抖地接着说。“我还没有说完。他们说他想要杀死波特的儿子哈利。但是他杀不了那个小男孩，没有人知道其中的原因，但是人们说如果他杀不了哈利·波特，伏地魔的力量就会消失——这也是他离开的原因。”邓布利多皱着眉点了一下头。
