The I In Team - S4-E13

Continuity mistake: The first shot of Maggie Walsh being impaled from behind with the skewer indicates that there is no one standing close by, judging by the amount of negative space around her. However, following shots reveal that the skewer is coming straight out of Adam's wrist, therefore he should have been visible in the previous shot.

Graduation Day (1) - S3-E21

Continuity mistake: In 'Graduation Day, Part 1' when Giles stabs the Mayor, as he takes the foil out of his chest you can see a wound on his shirt. When the shot changes it has disappeared. I know the Mayor is invincible and his wound heal in seconds, but it still takes a second or two for his wounds to close up, they don't just disappear. (00:15:40)

When the camera pans back, you can see Buffy is out of view, and is nowhere to be seen.

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.

Touched - S7-E20

Question: How come Buffy can move so fast when she's fighting Kaleb?

Answer: She has superpowers, ergo fast movement. The reason she outruns him so easily in "Touched" is that she stops trying to actually fight him and just dodges instead.
