Buffy The Vampire Slayer

Doomed - S4-E11

Continuity mistake: In the season 4 episode "Doomed," during the fight at the Hellmouth, Willow throws the sack of bones to Spike, who catches them and looks startled. In the very next shot of Buffy fighting one of the demons, Spike can be seen in the upper left corner of the screen, with empty hands, quite calmly watching the fight. (00:36:35)

When She Was Bad - S2-E1

Revealing mistake: As Willow, Cordy, Miss. Calendar and Giles are wheeled over the bones of the Master, Giles goes past and his hand brushes against the bones - the skeleton bends, revealing that it is rubber. (00:36:10)

The Initiative - S4-E7

Continuity mistake: At the party where Riley is talking to Buffy by the stairs, when he first comes over there is no one in the corner on the stairs but in the next shot there are two people who disappear two shots later.

After Life - S6-E3

Continuity mistake: When Anya was possessed, she cut her right cheek, but in the next shot, her left cheek was cut and she was cutting her right cheek again.

Beauty And The Beasts - S3-E4

Revealing mistake: In the teaser of "Beauty And The Beasts", when Jeff is running through the woods, you can see in the top left corner of several shots a lamp being used to light the scene.

Shay

Storyteller - S7-E16

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Xander and Anya have had their "one more time" and are lying in the cellar bed talking, the shot is on Xander and he is speaking. When he finishes speaking Anya starts, but the camera stays focussed on him, however, you can see part of Anya's face in the shot and her mouth is not moving despite the fact she is talking.

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.

School Hard - S2-E3

Plot hole: Willow and Cordy disappear during a vampire attack. We later see that they spent the entire night hiding out in a closet, but wouldn't Buffy have gone looking for them once the vampires were gone? She knew they had run off somewhere (she mentions it to Giles when she gets a stake from the library). Instead she just goes home, leaving them still missing as far as anyone knows. (00:41:25)

Shay

Tabula Rasa - S6-E8

Continuity mistake: In the beginning of the show, Buffy has two necklaces on, one long and one short. However, when Buffy, as Joan, is telling everyone her plan to get away from the vampires, she only has the short necklace on. Then when she is outside, running from Spike, as Randy, both necklaces are back on.

Fool For Love - S5-E7

Visible crew/equipment: When Spike picks up the money after Buffy has just said "you're beneath me", you can see the microphone "sender" under his leather jacket. (00:36:10)

Nightmares - S1-E10

Revealing mistake: When Xander punches out the evil clown if you freeze-frame you can see the punch missed the clown by quite a distance, I noticed it without freezing it but it's better to see if you do. (00:35:35)

The Zeppo - S3-E13

Continuity mistake: In the school near the end, one of the dead guys looks through the round window into the library and says 'wow'. In the long shot from within the library, his face isn't in the window. Back to the shot of the window, he's still there.

Doppelgangland - S3-E16

Continuity mistake: Whenever we see the two Willows together in this episode we see that Vampire Willow is understandably very pale in comparison to the living Willow. However, in the library with Cordelia, when Vampire Willow says 'How about dinner?' her face is no longer pale.

Gone - S6-E11

Revealing mistake: When Buffy is at the desk of the social assistant you can see the white wire at the left of the keyboard. The white wire controls the fake keyboard: you can see the wire moving. (00:20:50)

Two To Go (1) - S6-E21

Continuity mistake: When Willow is outside the jail just before she starts pulling bricks out, there are two policemen walking past the open door, but a split-second later as the shot moves out to look up at the window, they disappear.

Spiral - S5-E20

Continuity mistake: Near the end of the episode when Buffy runs out of the shack, after Glory and Dawn, for a brief second you see Spike's head, but a scene later you see Spike and the others run out of the building.

Graduation Day (2) - S3-E22

Continuity mistake: When Buffy wakes up in the hospital bed you can you can see the black strap of her tank top underneath the gown. Then when she gets out of bed on walk to Faith, and it shows her walking through the hall you can see a white spaghetti top through the gown.

Wrecked - S6-E10

Visible crew/equipment: Just after Dawn says "I like the trailers", we fade to black/commercials, then up again. Keep a close eye on the left side of the screen - you can see what looks like someone's hand flash into frame for a second, despite Dawn being alone in the room - looks like the director's hand signalling action. (00:25:50)

Revealing mistake: After the demon throws Buffy into a wall, she crashes to the ground. As she backs away, you can see the blue crash mat she landed on in the bottom left of the screen. (00:33:55)

The Wish - S3-E9

Visible crew/equipment: Just after Cordelia says "let's go to the Bronze", check the top of the screen - a microphone drops into shot for Harmony's line "is that a joke?" (00:16:20)

[After saving Giles from a vampire.]
Spike: Awww, poor Watcher. Did your life flash before your eyes? Cup of tea, cup of tea, almost-got-shagged, cup of tea?

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?

AnthonyA

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.
