During breakfast Neville receives a Remembrall from his grandmother. In the afternoon, Harry has his first flying, which is taught by Madam Hooch. Neville falls off his broomstick, breaking his wrist. While Draco Malfoy makes fun of him, Parvati Patil quarrels with Pansy Parkinson of Slytherin.
Draco flies away with the remembrall which Neville lost during his fall and Harry chases him. He catches it just before it falls on the ground after Draco had thrown it into the air. Instead of punishing him for flying while he was not allowed to, Professor McGonagall takes Harry to Oliver Wood, captain of the Quidditch team. Harry is told he will be the new Seeker, and he will recieve a broom; either a "Nimbus Two Thousand" or a "Cleansweep Seven" Harry finds out when talking to Fred and George that they are Beaters on the Quidditch team. Then they tell Harry they have to go because Lee Jordan believes he has found a new secret passageway out of the school; probably behind the statue of Gregory the Smarmy.
Draco challenges Harry to a wizard's duel in the Trophy Room at midnight. At midnight, when Harry and Ron leave, they meet with Hermione and Neville and they all go together. Hermione tries to talk them out of it, saying that if either of them gets caught, she won't rest until she's learned the Curse of the Bogies Quirrell told them about, to use on them. Draco does not show up for the duel. He had tricked them into coming hoping they would get caught. They almost get caught by Filch and Mrs. Norris. Trying to get back to Griffindor tower, Peeves tries to get them caught as well. When they reach the end of a corridor at a locked door, Hermione opens it with the spell Alohomora and they enter. They find a three-headed dog guarding the room and escape again, returning finally to Griffindor tower.
