Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone

Easter egg: On Disc 2, another way to get to the 7 deleted scenes. Follow the same previous listed steps of going through Diagon Alley to get your key, coins from Gringott's, and then your wand. Once you have your wand, back at the main menu, chose "Classrooms". Of the four classes, choose Potions. If you click on the mixing bowl, it will ask you to make three different potions, each requiring a combination of the ingredients of two test tubes. Note, these are the same potions that Snape asks Harry to list/name on the first day of class, testing him, and Harry doesn't know. You have to get all three to pass on to the keys. 1) How do you make the sleeping potion "Draught of Living Death"? Click on test tubes with Asphodel & Wormwood. 2) What two plants are also known as aconite? Click on Monkshood & Wolfsbane. 3) How do you cure a boil? Click on Snake fangs & Porcupine quills. Once you have done this successfully, you will be in the chamber of the keys. The steps from here are the same as mentioned previously.

Easter egg: On Disc 2, for the 7 deleted scenes: 1) In the Main Menu click the Owl - Diagon Alley. 2) To enter, choose the bricks in clockwise order from the left.

Then hit the Arrow to go back to Diagon Alley. 5) Click on the Ollivanders sign. 6) Pick a Wand Box, until the wand chooses you and then you'll be sent back to Diagon Alley. 7) Click on the Arrow to go back to the Main Menu. 8) Click the Wand on the table - Classrooms. 9) Place the cursor over the word- Transfigurations under the Cat and hit DOWN Arrow (or simply move the cursor directly to the *H* under the fire and skip to 12). 10) The two Owls under the fire will be highlighted. Hit Enter. 11) The *H* above the Owls is highlighted. Hit Enter. 12) Click on the Flute, above Fluffy's three heads. 13) Click on the tiny key with the bent wing tip at the door. Or pick any key. When you miss four times the correct key will be shown in the center of the screen, much much larger than the others. Click it. 14) Click on the short, round, yellow bottle in the back. Do this fast or you'll land in the Hospital Wing anyway. 15) In the Mirror of Erised click on the Stone.

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone mistake picture

Continuity mistake: At the snake exhibit, while Harry speaks with the Python the snake's body lies curled over a long wood log and a large rock. In the shot from outside the Python's exhibit, after the glass pane disappears Dudley falls over the rail and the snake is gone, not positioned differently, but altogether gone. In the next overhead shot inside the Python's exhibit, while Dudley falls the snake is back lying on the log and rock, in the same position as in the previous shots. (00:07:10)

Trivia: When Neville receives a Remembrall from his grandmother, it glows red to inform him that he forgot something. Neville says that he can't remember what he forgot. If you look closely, Neville is the only student in the Great Hall not wearing his robe. He most likely forgot to put his robe on.

Question: What ever made Snape suspicious of Quirrell? He couldn't have known that Voldemort was attached to Quirrell, or even that Quirrell supported Voldemort, because he surely would have reported either detail to Dumbledore. Then Dumbledore would have stopped Quirrell. So it isn't clear why he guessed, correctly, that Quirrell let the troll into the school or tried to kill Harry during the Quidditch game.

Answer: In the 7th book when Harry is looking into Snape's memory in the pensieve, Dumbledore mentions, "Keep an eye on Quirrell." This shows Dumbledore was suspicious of Quirrell and how Snape knew Quirrell may be up to something.
