The Harvest (2) - S1-E2

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.

The Harvest (2) - S1-E2

Audio problem: When Buffy kills the vampires dragging Xander at the beginning, we hear two impact sounds but don't hear either of them turn to dust. They were only a few feet away and there was no other sound to cover it up. (00:01:00)

Angel - S1-E7

Audio problem: Buffy's scream and Joyce's scream are completely identical. The same scream was obviously used for both of them. (00:16:25 - 00:26:55)

Inca Mummy Girl - S2-E4

Audio problem: When Xander, Willow and Ampata meet up at The Bronze, the song the band is playing is at the point of a guitar solo. If you watch Oz (who has already been established as 'lead guitarist') on stage in the background; he's blatantly NOT playing that solo. The hand movements don't match up.

Enemies - S3-E17

Audio problem: While Faith is stabbing the demon in his apartment, we hear the sound of her knife going through, and him yelling in pain. However, the last sound of her stabbing him comes a little late: The knife isn't even touching him.

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.

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.

First Date - S7-E14

Touched - S7-E20

Spike: You listen to me. [Kneels in front of her.] I've been alive a bit longer than you, and dead a lot longer than that. I've seen things you couldn't imagine, and done things I prefer you didn't. I don't exactly have a reputation for being a thinker. I follow my blood, which doesn't exactly rush in the direction of my brain. So I make a lot of mistakes, a lot of wrong bloody calls. A hundred plus years, and there's only one thing I've ever been sure of: you. [Buffy looks away; he reaches toward her face.] Hey, look at me. I'm not asking you for anything. When I say, "I love you, " it's not because I want you or because I can't have you. It has nothing to do with me. I love what you are, what you do, how you try. I've seen your kindness and your strength. I've seen the best and the worst of you. And I understand with perfect clarity exactly what you are. You're a hell of a woman. You're the one, Buffy.
Buffy: [Quietly.] I don't wanna be the one.

The Yoko Factor (1) - S4-E20

Question: At the last moment before leaving for good, Angel pauses to tell Buffy "I don't like him" [Riley], to which she replies with a large smile "Thank you." Why does she take this comment surprisingly well? From an ex boyfriend to her new boyfriend? It's not like it sounds like a friendly warning of any sort, nor a joke given the tense situation between the two guys in the episode. And the smile on Buffy's face does not make her response look ironic either, more like loving/caring. Is that a cross over reference to another dialogue in the Angel series?

AnthonyA

Chosen answer: Angel is saying that he is still jealous and Buffy recognizes that this is his way of saying he wishes that they could be together. That is why they both smile.
