J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series' screen adaptation has gone on to become a cult franchise. These films have given many memorable quotes and moments which have become so common around the world that people do not even realise they are using Harry Potter quotes. Here are a few common Harry Potter references used in television series and other films that viewers did not know about:

Orange Is the New Black

Orange Is the New Black is touted to have lots of Harry Potter quotes and references which most viewers have missed. In fact, the books play a big role in the show as the prisoners inside Litchfield prison are almost always seen pouring over the pages of Harry Potter. The character of Taystee constantly uses Harry Potter quotes or makes references to Harry Potter films. At one point, she tells Piper that she is a “cold-stone Slytherin”.  In Orange Is the New Black, the prisoners even have a discussion on which Hogwarts house everyone should be in.
