Buffy The Vampire Slayer

Never Kill A Boy On The First Date - S1-E5

Other mistake: In the famous scene where Buffy tells Giles, "If the Apocalypse comes, beep me," she grabs her pager from out of shot. Trouble is, she's standing in the middle of her hall and there's nowhere she could have picked the gadget up from.

xx:xx:xx

Anne - S3-E1

Other mistake: In the episode 'Anne' Kenn tells Buffy that time in his hell dimension passes more quickly, that one day on Earth is the same as 100 years in his dimension. This means time goes roughly 36,000 times quicker. When Lily falls into the portal, it's at least 10 seconds until Buffy jumps in after her, but Lily is still just sitting there looking stunned. If times moves that much faster, 10 seconds would become over 4 days. Would Lily still have been just sitting there?

The Puppet Show - S1-E9

Other mistake: When Sid gets into Buffy's bed and Buffy screams, her mum immediately comes into her room to find out what's wrong. Now, unless she sleeps on the landing, Buffy's mum is really quick at getting out of bed.

Earshot - S3-E18

Other mistake: When Angel is in Buffy's room, feeding her the potion, the window is curtain-free, allowing the room to fill with sunshine which can be seen on Angel's back.

Older And Far Away - S6-E14

Other mistake: As Spike follows Buffy into the hallway by her front door we see Spike's reflection in the mirror. Vampires do not have reflections, so Spike should not have been visible.

Add time

Something Blue - S4-E9

Other mistake: Just after Giles becomes completely blind, Spike gets up to get a book off of the mantle. When he does this you can, very briefly, see James Marsters reflected in the glass doors of the bookcase that was behind him, despite Spike being a vampire.

Never Leave Me - S7-E9

Other mistake: When Buffy pulls the knives out of the Bringers, there is no blood on them. Also, you can see the muscular arm of Buffy's stunt double pushing the knives into the Bringers.

Some Assembly Required - S2-E2

Other mistake: In all episodes where the high school football team is mentioned, they are called the RAZORBACKS but in this episode the cheerleaders cheer for the GREENBACKS (it wouldn't even make sense if this was a nickname as SHS colours are yellow and burgandy).

Bewitched, Bothered And Bewildered - S2-E16

Other mistake: Joyce tells Cordelia to grab some bandages for Xander from the bathroom upstairs. Joyce and Xander are in the kitchen and there is a small corridor that leads to the stairs, but Cordelia goes around the other way leading to the living room. Fair enough, Cordelia made a mistake. She isn't that bright. But she returns with the bandages coming back from the living room. Why come downstairs and then go all the way around through the living room when she could have just walked down the small corridor?

Becoming (1) - S2-E21

Other mistake: At the beginning of the episode when Giles visits the archaeologists who have obtained the obelisk, it appears to be much too tall/wide to have fit through the door.

Showtime - S7-E11

Other mistake: When The First (disguised as Eve) tells the Turok-Han to kill everybody except Buffy, it runs past her towards the exit of the crypt. The First then says, "Well, alone again", turns to face Spike and transforms into Buffy. In this shot, the Turok-Han can be seen still leaving the crypt, even though it had plenty of time to reach the exit and was running towards it at full speed.

Halloween - S2-E6

Other mistake: When Buffy and Willow find the picture of the noblewoman in the Watcher's Diaries, Buffy asks "Who is she?" and Willow replies "It doesn't say", but if you watch closely you can see that during the brief shot of the book her name is visible next to her picture.

Beauty And The Beasts - S3-E4

Other mistake: When Angel fights with Buffy in the forest you can see that he hasn't got shoes on, just socks. Later, when Buffy goes back to the mansion and Angel is chained up, he's wearing shoes. How did he manage to put them on, if he was in chains?

Add time

Innocence (2) - S2-E14

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?

The Harsh Light Of Day - S4-E3

Other mistake: We've seen before that vampires are fine as long as they aren't in direct sunlight, yet in this episode Spike is in the shade when Buffy removes the ring and he still starts fizzling.

Add time

Out Of My Mind - S5-E4

Other mistake: Towards the end of the episode when Spike tells Buffy to stake him and removes his shirt, you can see that he has a tan on his upper back/neck to his hairline from wearing a t-shirt.

Add time

School Hard - S2-E3

Other mistake: As Spike is walking down the hall, you can see a reflection of his head on a locker to his left.

Issabee

Lover's Walk - S3-E8

Other mistake: In the final scene, where Spike drives down the road while singing 'My Way' he turns the steering wheel significantly, but in the external shots the car is travelling down a straight road, with no bends. He is turning it sharply to the right as the camera cuts to outside, but the car continues straight ahead.

Add time

Never Leave Me - S7-E9

Other mistake: When Buffy is talking about Spike's trigger she says, "He's a bomb and I need to know how to defuse him." The DVD subtitles misspell "defuse" as "diffuse."

xx:xx:xx

Phoenix

Lies My Parents Told Me - S7-E17

Other mistake: Robin uses the song that Spike's mother sang to him to provoke him into attacking him. The song is played on his computer through Apple's media program "iTunes". He clicks his computer's mouse to start the song, but when we see the monitor the cursor isn't placed on the Play button. Robin doesn't jostle the mouse when he presses it, it remains completely still on the desk. And the only way to play a song through iTunes using a single mouse-click is by clicking on the Play button.

I Robot, You Jane - S1-E8

Other mistake: Willow's computer beeps twice when her first email from Malcolm is received through before she is kidnapped by Fritz, but only beeps once when the second email is received.

Seeing Red - S6-E19

Other mistake: At the Bronze, when Warren punches Xander the first time, Warren never actually punches him, and Xander starts to go up in the air before you even hear the sound of the punch.

Surprise (1) - S2-E13

Other mistake: When Buffy and Angel escape from Spike, Dru and the Judge they jump down into the sewer, then run all of five metres before going up the ladder to escape. When they come out of the sewer they are in a very open area with the factory nowhere in sight. They have not travelled far enough for this to be the case.

Smashed - S6-E9

Other mistake: The newspaper that Xander is reading in the library has the same text over and over again and does not at all match the headlines.

Doppelgangland - S3-E16

Other mistake: In "Doppelgangland", Vampire Willow struggles to remember Cordelia's name. However, it is still Willow, she knew Cordelia from being human (we see this in The Wish as well).

Consequences - S3-E15

Other mistake: When the detective is interviewing the woman in the alley he says "So you heard the man scream about what time?", but Finch didn't scream as he died.

Same Time, Same Place - S7-E3

Other mistake: We're shown a variety of photographs and pictures of different members of the gang at one point. One of those, the one of Xander and Anya, is actually a shot from the episode "Something Blue". I doubt very much that during the events in that episode, someone conveniently decided to take a photograph.

Phoebe

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.

Add time

I Was Made To Love You - S5-E15

Other mistake: According to Buffy's watch, the first scene with her, Dawn and Joyce starts at 4:23 PM and ends at 4:24 PM. But the scene lasts much longer than that.

Show generally

Other mistake: In episode "Helpless" in season 3, after the council member bitten by the crazy vampire rises, his bite marks heal. But in season 7's "Lies My Parents Told Me," it shows Spike's mother already risen and her bite marks are still there.

First Date - S7-E14

Other mistake: When Buffy, Spike and Principal Wood are driving, how does Principal Wood notice Spike in the rear view mirror if vampires don't cast a reflection?

Add time

The Prom - S3-E20

Other mistake: When we first see one of the Hellhounds at the clothes store that Cordelia works at, it jumps through the window, smashing the glass, and then attacks a customer who's wearing a tuxedo. But the Hellhound attacks the customer several seconds after it smashes through the window, giving the customer a chance to escape. But the customer just stands there unaware of the Hellhound, having not heard the window being smashed.

Killed By Death - S2-E18

Other mistake: In the basement when Death throws Ryan to the floor, Ryan lands pretty softly considering that he was just thrown pretty hard.

Amends - S3-E10

Other mistake: During this episode near the beginning, Xander says something about Giles not liking Angel to the effect of, "he killed his girlfriend (Jenny) and tortured him." However, the subtitles say "tortured her," not "him."

Never Leave Me - S7-E9

Other mistake: When Robin Wood is burying Jonathan, Jonathan's face flinches when the first heap of dirt lands on his legs.

Prophecy Girl - S1-E12

Other mistake: The Master's skeleton, before it is destroyed, looks to be female and not male. (Note the wide hips and large birth canal-like hole.) Also in the Next season's "When she was bad," they have another shot of the same skeleton, however the hips are much smaller and more male.

Graduation Day (2) - S3-E22

Other mistake: At the end the library that was rigged with explosives blows up. But the school's main entrance and the clock tower blow up as well, even though they are not rigged with explosives.

THGhost

Something Blue - S4-E9

Other mistake: In the scene where Spike escapes from a blind Giles, he pushes Giles out of the way and does not get a shock to the head from the chip in his head, which normally goes off with the most minor hint of violence.

Quotes

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.

Mistakes

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.

Trivia

In addition to singing "Rest in Peace," James Marsters also played the song's guitar track.
