JACOB

How do I get a drink in this joint?

Out of nowhere, a thin bottle of brown liquid zooms towards him. He catches it, stunned.

The head of a HOUSE-ELF peers up at him from behind the bar.

HOUSE-ELF

What? Ain’t you ever seen a house-elf before?

JACOB

Oh, no, yeah, no, yeah of course I have… I love house-elves.

JACOB tries to act nonchalant – he removes the cork from the bottle.

JACOB

My uncle’s a house-elf

The HOUSE-ELF – not fooled – raises himself up, leaning on the bar to stare at JACOB.
