Buffy The Vampire Slayer

Becoming (2) - S2-E22

Continuity mistake: When Joyce is being interviewed by the policemen at the house, you can see the number outside the house, but it says 163 instead of 1630, the number on which Buffy lives.

Becoming (2) - S2-E22

Continuity mistake: In "Becoming Part 2" At the end when Spike chokes Drusilla unconscious, he picks her up, one of her hands is resting on her stomach and the other is hanging to her side. It cuts to a shot of Spike looking at Angel and Buffy fighting then to Spike leaving with his back facing the camera. You can see that the hand resting on Drusilla's stomach moved to Spike's shoulder.

Becoming (2) - S2-E22

Factual error: When Angelus is torturing Giles in this episode he is seen with Giles' glasses, and he cleans them by breathing on the glass and wiping with a cloth. Vampires don't have breath, as Angel tells Xander in 'Prophecy Girl' from season one - even if he can force some air out of his body, it wouldn't be warm, moist air, which is needed for condensation to clean glasses with.

Becoming (2) - S2-E22

Other mistake: When Willow is attempting the spell in the hospital, the subtitles state that Xander is speaking a line of the incantation. It is actually Oz speaking - Xander is off rescuing Giles, as we see in the very next shot.

Becoming (2) - S2-E22

Plot hole: Spike makes it clear when talking to Buffy that he wants Angel dead. Yet later on, when Buffy confronts Angel and says she doesn't think she can take them all on alone, Spike only knocks Angel down when he easily could have staked or beheaded him.

Becoming (2) - S2-E22

Revealing mistake: Throughout almost the entire sword fight between Buffy and Angel, from the far away shots, its clear that the actors are stunt doubles. It's very visible when there is a shot from the top. (00:34:05)

Becoming (2) - S2-E22

Revealing mistake: When Buffy and Angel are sword-fighting, the camera pans up and to the side, you can see David Boreanaz's stunt double. His hair line is farther back then David Boreanaz's.

School Hard - S2-E3

Vampire: And when I kill her, it will be the greatest event since the crucifixion. And I should know, I was there.
Spike: You were there?! If every vampire who said he was actually at the crucifixion really was there, it would've been like Woodstock!

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.
