Gemara 115a [line 10]:
The words "Amar Hilel"
should be "Amar Rav Hilel"
This is the correct Girsa, and is found in the Rosh and the Ba'al ha'Itur (Dikdukei Sofrim #3, Minchas Yehudah)
 Rashbam 115b DH Bala Maror Lo Yatza:
The words "u'Lefi ha'Kasuv b'Sefarim"
should be "u'Lefi ha'Kasuv b'Sefarav"
(The Rashbam is referring to the Sefarim of Rashi.)
 Rashbam 115b DH v'Ein Oker Es ha'Shulchan:
The words "*v'Keivan* d'Lo Matzi l'Meimar"
should be "*Keivan* d'Lo Matzi l'Meimar" (RASHASH)
 Rashbam 115b DH v'Ein Oker Es ha'Shulchan:
The words "*Im* Hayah Magbiho la'Tavshil"
should be "*v'Im* Hayah Magbiho la'Tavshil" (RASHASH)
*1*) [line 1] L'ACHAR SHE'MILEI KEREISO ... - Rav Chisda contends that although Mitzvos Tzerichos Kavanah, it would be proper to recite the Berachah of "Al Achilas Maror" the first time one eats Chazeres, with the intention to fulfill the Mitzvah of Maror then.
2) [line 10] NEICHROCH - bind (i.e., hold) together
3) [line 14] MITZVOS EIN MEVATLOS ZU ES ZU
(a) As a general rule, a combination of two items thoroughly mixed together has the Halachic status of the ingredient which is in the majority. This is called Bitul of the Mi'ut in the Rov. If two food items which had not been previously mixed are chewed together in one's mouth, they will inevitably mix to some degree, leading to at least a partial Bitul of one of the items.
(b) The consumption of a k'Zayis of Maror, a k'Zayis of Matzah, and a k'Zayis of the Korban Pesach held together may therefore lead to at least part of one of these k'Zeisim becoming Halachically Batel. For this reason, it should be incumbent upon one who wishes to be sure that he has fulfilled these Mitzvos to eat a k'Zayis of each of these items separately.
(c) Some Tana'im, however, are of the opinion that "Ein Mitzvos Mevatlos Zu Es Zu" -- any items eaten in fulfillment of a Mitzvah do not annul one another's Halachic status. This is because all such items belong to one category; namely, that of Mitzvos (this is similar to the concept of Min b'Mino Eino Batel -- see Background to Pesachim 65:10). One may therefore consume that which is necessary to perform a number of different Mitzvos together without fear that the various foods will cancel each other out.
4) [line 19] SHE'HAYAH KORCHAN B'VAS ACHAS - that he would bind [a k'Zayis of Maror, a k'Zayis of Matzah, and a k'Zayis of the Korban Pesach] together [when the Beis ha'Mikdash was standing]
*5*) [line 23] TALMUD LOMAR, "(AL MATZOS U'MERORIM) YOCHLUHU" - These Tana'im disagree with Hillel from that which the verse stresses "Yochluhu" -- "you shall eat it", as opposed to simply stating "Yochlu" -- "you shall eat". It would have been clear from the context that the Pasuk was referring to the Korban Pesach.
*6a*) [line 30] LO K'HILLEL - not like Hillel, who maintains a) that one may eat Matzah, Maror, and the Korban Pesach held together (RASHBAM); b) that one must eat Matzah, Maror, and the Korban Pesach held together (TOSFOS DH Ela)
b) [line 30] LO K'RABANAN - not like the Rabanan, who maintain a) that one may not eat Matzah, Maror, and the Korban Pesach held together (RASHBAM); b) that one need not eat Matzah, Maror, and the Korban Pesach held together (TOSFOS DH Ela)
7) [last line] KOL SHE'TIVULO B'MASHKEH TZARICH NETILAS YADAYIM (KOL HAPOSEL ES HA'TERUMAH, METAMEI MASHKIN LIHEYOS TECHILAH)
(a) The various levels of Tum'ah are: 1) Avi Avos ha'Tum'ah, 2) Av ha'Tum'ah, 3) Rishon l'Tum'ah, 4) Sheni l'Tum'ah, 5) Shelishi l'Tum'ah, and 6) Revi'i l'Tum'ah. If Terumah becomes a Shelishi, it is Pesulah. This means that although it may not be eaten, it does not affect other Terumah to make it a Revi'i. Such Terumah may not be eaten, although one may benefit from it through burning it.
(b) The Chachamim decreed that a liquid which comes into contact with a person or object which can be Metamei Terumah (i.e. a Sheni l'Tum'ah) becomes a Rishon l'Tum'ah. They did so in order that people should be careful to guard liquids against becoming Tamei. It is far easier for liquids to become Tamei than for dry food to become Tamei, since liquid does not require Hechsher ("preparation" for becoming Tamei through contact with one of the seven liquids which cause that condition; see Background to 20:2). Liquids become Tamei as soon as Tum'ah touches them (Pesachim 18b).
(c) The Rabanan further decreed that unless one has been careful since last washing his hands to keep them Tahor, they are assumed to have the status of a Sheni l'Tum'ah. Therefore, if one wishes to handle a vegetable dipped in a liquid such as Maror, he should first wash his hands. This is because should he come into contact with the liquid, it will become a Rishon l'Tum'ah, after which point one is forbidden to drink it (TOSFOS DH Kol).
8) [line 1] L'SHAKU'EI B'CHAROSES - to submerge it in Charoses
9a) [line 1] KAPA - a) poisonous acid found in bitter herbs and onions (RASHBAM) ; b) a worm which lives in various foods (RABEINU CHANANEL; see also Background to Eruvin 29:23)
b) [line 4] ME'REICHA MAYIS - a) is rendered harmless; b) dies, due to the vapors emanating from the Charoses
10) [line 6] NISH'HI - leave
11) [line 6] AGAV CHALYEI - due to the sweetness
12) [line 8] ADBEREI - led; took on a walk
13a) [line 9] TIBUL RISHON - Karpas
b) [line 10] TIBUL SHENI - Maror
14) [line 11] B'ALMA - generally speaking (should one find himself dipping twice)
15) [line 18] AGADTA - the Hagadah
16) [line 19] BALA MATZAH - one who swallowed Matzah [without chewing it]
17) [line 20] LO YATZA - has not fulfilled his obligation [to eat Maror, since the Torah requires one to taste the bitterness of the Maror (see RASHI for an alternate Girsa)]
18) [line 21] SIV - a fibrous substance which grows just under the surface of a date palm
19) [line 25] OKRIN - remove
20) [line 30] KA MADLEI TAKA - they were taking away (lit. raising) the table
*21*) [line 33] "LECHEM ONI" - The Torah describes Matzah as "Lechem Oni" -- "poor man's bread." The word "Oni" is spelled Ayin Nun Yud, but is pronounced as if there is a Vav between the Ayin and the Nun.
22) [line 35] SHE'ONIN ALAV DEVARIM HARBEH - that many things are answered upon it; i.e., the Hagadah, which is recited when Matzah is on the table
23) [last line] DARKO B'PERUSAH - is used to [eating only some of his bread, and putting] a piece [away to eat later]
