Buffy The Vampire Slayer

Halloween - S2-E6

Corrected entry: The vampire Angel fights in Buffy's house was never invited in.


Correction: The vampire who came rushing in for Angel to fight was one of the spell-affected humans. Only appearances and behaviors changed the humans. None of the supernatural "rules" apply so that person with more or less a glamour prohibiting their own control wouldn't need an invite.


Halloween - S2-E6

Corrected entry: In "Halloween," when Willow is walking by Oz's car, when they show Oz, the steering wheel is on the left side of the car. They aren't in England.


Correction: You dont have to be in England to have a car with the steering wheel on the other side of the car. I've seen several left sided cars in the States.


Halloween - S2-E6

Corrected entry: After Buffy smashes Larry into the vending machine, a Diet Dr Pepper comes out. However you can see in earlier shots that there is no button for Diet Dr Pepper.

Correction: All it takes is for the person stocking the machine to place the wrong drink in the machine for this to happen. I've worked at one place where you never got what you ordered from the machine because the supplier kept stocking it wrong. In fact, in Graduation Day Part 1, Willow says: "Oh trusty soda machine, I push you for Root Beer, you give me Coke."


Halloween - S2-E6

Corrected entry: When the gang are in Buffy's house and she sees the picture of herself standing alone, instead of saying the line "I would never wear that low apparel" she fluffs her line and said "I would never wear this that low apparel" The shot changes between the words "this" and "that" so it looks like they tried to cut out the mistake in words but didn't succeed. (00:26:30)

Correction: The line, written with pauses, goes "I would never wear this. That low apparel...", at which point Buffy trails off in disbelief. It isn't a fluffed line, it is an attempt to convey confusion delivered a little too fast.


Halloween - S2-E6

Corrected entry: In the season two episode 'Halloween' only the people who got their costumes from Ethan's store are meant to change into what they are dressed as when the spell is cast. However, Xander changes, despite having told the girls in an earlier scene that he got his fatigues from an army surplus store - not from Ethan's

Correction: He bought the toy gun at Ethan's and it had the curse.


Goodbye Iowa - S4-E14

Continuity mistake: When Buffy is talking to Riley, she puts the scarf on her head, on his hand. He talks to her and says "Maybe I am the bad guy," and in the next frame her scarf is back on her head again, then off again in the next frame. (00:24:20)

Homecoming - S3-E5

Question: In this episode Oz says "As Willow goes, so goes my nation". Is this a variation on a famous quote, and if so, which?

Chosen answer: "So goes the nation" seems to have been used on many occasions, with various different US states in the "As .... goes" section. Most commonly it seems to be California that's considered to lead the way, but probably most other states have appeared in the lead role at some point or another. Other things have also been used - no less a person that Pope John Paul II said "As the family goes, so goes the nation...". The origin of the quote format is unclear - in US politics it goes back into the 19th century, when it was Maine that held the title spot, but, while no definitive origin is known, it seems highly likely that it goes back considerably further than that.
