Buffy The Vampire Slayer

Tabula Rasa - S6-E8

Trivia: In the episode 'Tabula Rasa', Buffy says to Spike 'A vampire with a soul? How lame is that?', a dig at spin-off show 'Angel'.


Tabula Rasa - S6-E8

Trivia: Tabula Rasa is a philosophical term. It's a school of thought founded primarily by John Locke and it holds that human beings are born as "blank slates" - that is, they have no knowledge or experience. This is contrasted with a belief system that all humans have certain ideas at birth; "God exists" is one commonly put forward.


Tabula Rasa - S6-E8

Trivia: A Dictionary definition of the phrase "Tabula Rasa" is: Latin, smoothed or erased tablet. 1) the mind in its hypothetical primary blank or empty state before receiving outside impressions. 2) something existing in its original pristine state. Fitting, don't you think?

Tabula Rasa - S6-E8

Trivia: The episode, Tabula Rasa, is very aptly named. Tabula Rasa (Latin) means 'blank slate' (which refers to being born 'blank' and that intellect and behavior only comes from experience and perception) and is appropriate since the characters lost all their memories due to Willow's spell.

Halloween - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: Willow is turned into a ghost. Throughout the entire episode, she can't touch anything (can't turn the pages of a book, etc.), yet towards the end when she and Giles go to Ethan's shop, and she leaves, you can hear that she opened and closed the door, even though she can walk through walls and can't actually touch the door. The curtain moves when she leaves too. (00:34:05)

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?


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.
