Continuity mistake: In Potions class, when Hermione stands before the cauldron explaining what she is smelling in her closeup, we see Neville behind her with the broad space to his right (viewer's left), just as she says, "Spearmint toothpaste". In the instant cut to the wideshot, Harry is now shoulder to shoulder with Neville, too fast for him to suddenly be standing that close to Neville. (00:34:35)
Harry and Dumbledore discover that Voldemort made seven Horcruxes - everyday objects that contain pieces of Voldemort's soul. Two have been destroyed, Tom Riddle's diary and a ring formerly owned by Voldemort. Harry and Dumbledore find a third - a locket in a cave. As they return to the castle, Malfoy appears and disarms Dumbledore. He tries to kill him but can't do it. Snape then appears and kills Dumbledore himself. He escapes along with Malfoy and the other Death Eaters. Harry opens the locket to find a note saying that the Horcrux is a fake, replaced by R.A.B.
Albus Dumbledore: Take my arm. That was fun. Most people vomit their first time.
Question: Instead of using the Pensieve to view Voldemort's and Slughorn's memories, wouldn't it have been much easier for Dumbledore to simply tell Harry of his first meeting with Tom and Harry simply asking Slughorn what he knew?
