"So, how do I look?"
"The kind witch at the shop said that it's a beautiful set of robes, and I had to agree."
"Well, Albus, I…"
"I, particularly, think it is an astonishing color, don't you?"
"And the design is certainly marvelous."
"This texture… Amazing!"
"Speechless, my dear? That was exactly my reaction when I first laid eyes on these robes"
"Don't try to sound stern, when I can see it in your face you're stunned by the beauty of this material"
"Stunned, yes, but not…"
"Well, I must say I knew you would like them."
"Admit it that you didn't think I could go shopping and come back with something that good, Minerva."
"I knew it!"
"Yes, but this…"
"Isn't it the most wonderful piece of clothing you have ever seen?"
"Yes, I knew you're going to see through my point of view."
"Albus, hear me out."
"But isn't it what I've bee doing for the last ten minutes or so?"
"These robes, Albus Dumbledore, are terrible!"
"Didn't you mean 'terrific'?"
"Shut up, your old coot"
"Thank you. Now, let's start. First and foremost, the design is horrible."
"DON'T! The images are outrageous. For Merlin's sake, lemon drops, Albus?"
"My dear, I…"
"I can't hear you. The texture is odd, to say the least"
"I think it is…"
"I don't care what you think. I'm not finished yet."
"The color, oh, the color is the worst part of it all"
"But the color is…"
"Exactly, isn't it wonderful?"
"Exactly, isn't it incredibly unbelievable?"
"Well, maybe not so unbelievable. Only you would wear robes made of this hideous purple thing with lemon drops stamped on it!"
"So this is about the lemon drops, then?"
"No! It's about this purple thing. Albus, it's ridiculous. Oh, Merlin, what's this? Is it… shining?"
"Yes, you discovered what's so special about this color. It's shiny!"
"Oh, Merlin. Oh. Dear. Merlin. Please don't let anybody see me with him, please."
"Why, Minerva, I…"
"Albus, please say you're not planning to wear it in public"
"Actually, the Ministry Ball seemed a good…"
"Don't you dare think of it! I won't allow it."
"Because I'm going to the Ball with you, and I don't want this purple thing following me around."
"It would be me 'following you around', not the purple thing, as you like to call it"
"It doesn't matter. Oh, Merlin, I'm having a headache. Hide these robes from me, NOW!"
"What am I supposed to do with them?"
"Take them off!" and with a flick of her wand, his robes vanished, and he was left wearing only his knickers. "Much better" she said as she walked up to him and put her arms around his neck.
"What now, my dear?"
"Now, we do this." And she kissed him.
"A wonderful idea" he said when they broke the kiss.
"I lied, by the way"
"Yes. The robes looked wonderful on you. I just wanted you out of them"
