Visible crew/equipment: During the Quidditch match Harry's broomstick tries to shake him off, due to the spell. After Hermione tells Ron, "Leave it to me," in Harry's last close-up before he flips over, the seat that is attached to the broomstick, to make it more comfortable for Dan Radcliffe to sit on, is entirely visible. Glimpses of other seats can be had during the match as well. (01:20:50)
Harry, Ron, and Hermione believe that Professor Snape is going to try to steal the Philosopher's/Sorcerer's Stone which is hidden in the castle. They attempt to beat him to it. When Ron is injured, Hermione stays with him and Harry continues on to confront Snape. However, Harry finds Professor Quirrell instead. He is standing in front of the Mirror of Erised, which is apparently holding the stone somewhere. Quirrell explains that it was he who had been trying to steal the stone and that Snape had actually been trying to protect it. A voice from under Quirrell's turban instructs him to use Harry to get the stone. When Harry looks into the Mirror, the stone appears in his pocket. The mysterious voice says to Quirrel, "Let me speak to him." Quirrell removes his turban revealing the face of Voldemort on the back of his head; Voldemort had been using Professor Quirrel to stay alive like a paracite. Under Voldemort's orders, Quirrell attempts to take the stone from Harry, choking him. When Quirrel touches Harry, he dissolves into ashes. Voldemort, now without a body, escapes. In the Hogwarts infirmary, Professor Dumbledore explains that when Harry's mother died to save his life, this act left him with a magical protection which saved him from Quirrel and Voldemort. The Philosopher's/Sorcerer's Stone is destroyed, meaning Nicholas Flamel will die. The heroic acts of Harry, Ron, Hermione, and Neville win Gryffindor the Hogwarts House Cup. Hagrid gives Harry a photo album as he leaves home for the summer, although Harry says he's "not going home; Not really."
Trivia: For anyone who hasn't read the book: The inscription on top of the Mirror of Erised says "erised stra ehru oyt ube cafru oyt on wohsi". If you read the inscription backwards it says "I show not your face but your heart's desire".
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.
