Other mistake: When Angel, Drusilla and The Judge enter the mall, The Judge kills a pedestrian as he tries to get away. But no other pedestrians that are in the mall notice - A big blue guy just set a man on fire and disintegrated him into tiny pieces in a public mall and NOBODY noticed?

Innocence (2) - S2-E14

Continuity mistake: In Innocence, when the Scoobies are in the library, Oz (I think) says for the crew to meet outside Xander's house a half hour later. Then we cut to Buffy strolling through Sunnydale High in broad daylight, then back to Oz's van outside the military base and it's last night again. (00:23:15 - 00:29:20)

Innocence (2) - S2-E14

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Drusilla and the new reformed Angelus are in the shopping mall and they got blown over the side after Buffy fires the grenade launcher at the Judge, you can tell that it was Mike Mass and not David Boreanaz that got blown over the side.

Innocence (2) - S2-E14

Continuity mistake: When Buffy wakes up she is wearing metallic nail polish, yet when she went to sleep previously, she has no nail polish on. Later in a scene where Buffy is dreaming about her night with Angel she has the nail polish on again, even though that took place the night before when she did not have her nails painted. (00:01:15)

Innocence (2) - S2-E14

Continuity mistake: When Willow catches Xander and Cordelia kissing in the library, the hair next to Willow's right ear moves between shots as her and Xander are talking in the hallway.

Innocence (2) - S2-E14

Continuity mistake: When the Judge is blown up, Drusilla and Angel leap from the balcony. In mid-air, they somersault and their backs are facing the ground as they fall, but a second later they land on their stomachs.

Innocence (2) - S2-E14

Revealing mistake: Drusilla's reflection can be seen in the metal part of what appears to be the base of a shopping mall map just as she's getting up after the Judge has been blown up.

Innocence (2) - S2-E14

Continuity mistake: When Buffy is told that Angel has become Angelus, she mentions "I should have known. When I saw him at the house he was different", but her earlier conversation with him took place not at the house but at his apartment. This isn't just a strange turn of phrase - the scene was originally shot at the Summers house, but was changed to Angel's apartment for more emotional resonance.

Innocence (2) - S2-E14

Plot hole: After losing his soul, Angelus kills Jenny Calender's uncle, who is a descendant of the gypsy clan who cursed him. But, since there is nothing to suggest the uncle's room is in a public location, Angelus couldn't have gotten in the room without an invitation.

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.
