Harry Potter References
On the show, many references have been added to the famous Harry Potter literary/film series like:
- The Test of My Love - Miley lies to Trey's parents saying that she used to live and studies in England, and when they ask her where,without thinking, she replies : "Hogwarts" (which is the most important magic school in the series, and is also where Harry, the main character of the saga, has studied) .
- No Sugar, Sugar - when Robby accidentally embarrassed Jackson in front of his girlfriend for his miraculous new school grades who he has recived, Jackson tells the girl : " He is not my real father, i was left on his door ... by a magician ". Referring, of course, to the opening scene in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, where Professor Dumbledore leaves Harry on the threshold of the Dursley house.
- He Ain't a Hottie, He's My Brother - when Lilly has an alleged crush on Jackson (in Miley dream), Jackson is trying to find a puppy's mother, softened by the gesture of the boy, she exclaims : "Awwww." And Miley replies her : Aw Lilly, come on, even Lord Voldemort, it would be nice with a puppy in his arms! "
- Welcome to the Bungle - while on the "Mack and Mickey" show Mickey asks Hannah Montana how she feels about the Potter books and Hannah says she likes to just waiting for the movies (causing an international crisis). Mack replies that he read them all while Mickey is still on Goblet of Fire.
- Super(stitious) Girl - when Miley looks for her anklet in the bathroom and finds a lot of long hair in the drain, she says, "Well, it's not in the drain. But l think Hagrid had this room before us."
It is very unlikely for a Reunion to happen. Miley Cyrus stated in a interview that she would not like it because it's a lot of time with her dad, Billy Ray Cyrus who played Robby Ray Stewart and as she put it, she sees him enough already. Other cast members would like a reunion though.
