Continuity mistake: When Xander is showing Willow and Buffy his fake ID and the view of the shot is from behind Xander, he is holding the card with his thumb and middle finger. Switch to the view from behind Willow and it's being held with his thumb and index finger. Then it switches to behind Xander again and it's back to thumb and middle finger.

Audio problem: When Giles and Anya are talking to the demon, trying to get him to open the portal to Beljoxa's Eye, when you see Anya's face from the side, her lips don't sync up with what she is saying, and sometimes her lips are moving to words when she doesn't have any lines at all.

Visible crew/equipment: When Xander is in the bathroom after Buffy called him to look for the talisman, he bends down and grabs the talisman that lays under the sinks. As he stands the camera pans up to the mirrors and on the left side you can see the reflection of a crew member crouching over the hole to the old school. It's not the female manifest spirit as the clothes are wrong and she then appears from a different part of the room.

Audio problem: When everyone is in the Bronze - just before the vamps show up - you hear the first line of a song being played, Ballad For Dead Friends by Dashboard Prophets, cut to outside and you see the vamps strolling along and killing the doorman, then cut back into the Bronze and the same line plays again. This is a total error in cutting the show, it is stated there is no live band but still the same line plays twice when that is not how the song goes.

Question: I know the name of this episode is a Biblical reference because of mention of Bethlehem, but what exactly does Slouching Toward Bethlehem mean, I haven't seen the episode in a while but I think it is only mentioned when Lorne says "Do the words Slouching Toward Bethlehem mean anything?" Which doesn't explain much.

Factual error: When Giles and Cordelia are driving to save the girls from getting burned at the stake and are making the potion to make the demon show his true face Giles tells Cordelia to shred the Wolfsbane. This is a huge mistake as any Witch will know (my sister pointed this out to me) that Wolfsbane is highly poisonous and should never be touched with bare hands and Cordelia didn't have gloves or anything.
Audio problem: When Buffy has just killed the Suvolte demon and Riley is found out to have not told her it was a tracking only mission Sam says something like 'If we weren't under time constraints, I'd rip you a new one.' Riley then says 'Stand down soldier.' Buffy asks Sam, 'Is he your boss?' And Sam replies 'He wishes. We better regroup.' But her lips to not move when she says they have to regroup. You can see her mouth on screen and she is just smiling, not moving her lips at all.
Continuity mistake: When Buffy receives her letter from UC Sunnydale it says her address is 1630 Crestview, this doesn't sync up continuity-wise with the episode The Body as she tells the 911 operator that her address is 1630 Revello. She didn't move so it's a definite mistake.

Trivia: A Dictionary definition of the phrase "Tabula Rasa" is: Latin, smoothed or erased tablet. 1) the mind in its hypothetical primary blank or empty state before receiving outside impressions. 2) something existing in its original pristine state. Fitting, don't you think?

Trivia: There are a lot of running jokes that Peter Kay uses, if you have seen his two live shows then you will have heard 'Garlic bread?' and 'Cheese cake?' in the first episode of series one they use the same joke for 'Head sets?' also the 'I said ping pong balls, not King Kong's balls.' is used in series two, as well as Kay's second live show.
