References to Harry Potter
In 2003, after giving birth to Wyatt Halliwell, Piper, Phoebe, Paige and Leo Wyatt try to come up with possible names for the then nameless baby. After Leo suggests the name Peter, the sisters object to it saying he may get teased for it since his gender was a surprise. Paige then says "I'm thinking that's probably true, although he could just zap them onto a roof like Harry Potter would or something," and Phoebe then suggests the name Potter Halliwell but it is soon shot down.
A copy of the Harry Potter books are kept at Magic School Library. Mr. Monkeyshines attempted to ban it, along with The Lord of the Rings and The Wizard of Oz, despite Miss Donovan's protests, but Headmistress Paige Matthews ruled in Miss Donovan's favor.
Tyler Michaels makes a reference to Harry Potter. When Piper tells him to leave the Magic School because it's not safe, Tyler replies by saying that Harry Potter gave permission to the older students of Hogwarts to stay and fight during its big battle. Leo then tells him, that the Magic School is not Hogwarts and that he's not officially a student yet anyway.
