"I can teach you how to bottle fame, brew glory, even stopper death – if you aren't as big a bunch of dunderheads as I usually have to teach."
— Severus Snape

Harry’s first potions class

Harry discovers that Professor Snape actively dislikes him when he embarrasses Harry in front of the rest of the class. However, some of the information Snape gives him was valuable later on, such as the ingredients for Wolfsbane Potion and the proper use of a bezoar to avoid poisoning.
