My notes on the book make the strange claim that he only appears in exactly three scenes. I cannot believe that I ever cared to count, but my memory of the book agrees with this count. I can only recall:
- Harry first encountering Dobby in his bedroom. I think there's a blink-and-you'll-miss it reference to Dobby before this, but I'm not sure.
- Harry and Dobby talking in a hospital bed.
- Dobby protecting Harry at the end.
Is my count accurate? Or are my notes as unreliable as I suspect?
