Buffy The Vampire Slayer

Passion - S2-E17

Character mistake: In the computer room, Jenny asks Angel how he got into the school. Earlier in the series, Spike's gang attacked the school without being invited in. Jenny would have known about this and therefore should have known that vampires can get in.

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.

Doublemeat Palace - S6-E12

Continuity mistake: When Buffy's friends come visit her at work, WIllow is playing with some straws in a styrofoam cup next to the register which disappears a few shots later.

Phases - S2-E15

Visible crew/equipment: Right after Kane and Buffy's fight in the woods, in the shot right after Kane leaves, you can see set-lights above the clearing where they fought.

Consequences - S3-E15

Continuity mistake: In 'Consequences' Buffy says to Faith 'Less that 24 hours ago you killed a man'. In 'Bad Girls', Faith kills Finch in the alley on the first night. One night later Buffy and Angel are attacking Belthazor, the night after that is the night when Buffy dreams about drowning, so the night when Buffy says this is actually about 72 hours after the murder.

Show generally

Character mistake: Time and time again, Buffy or another of the Scoobies have gone a few metres away from a vampire and talked about them, shouldn't they be able to hear them? Because aren't they supposed to have heightened senses?

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.

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.

Potential - S7-E12

Visible crew/equipment: After the opening credits when the potential Slayers are in Buffy's kitchen deciding what their weapon of choice is, a camera crew is reflected in Vi's mace once Buffy and Andrew enter the room.

Listening To Fear - S5-E9

Character mistake: Willow refers to the Tunguska Blast of 1917. However, that event actually occurred in 1908.

Wild At Heart - S4-E6

Revealing mistake: Towards the end when Oz says to Veruca, "You don't wanna find out what I am", and partially turns into a Werewolf. You can tell that both of the actors were filmed separately for the CGI's sake as Oz stands out from the picture more than Veruca does. The same effect is obvious during "Doppelgangland" in season 3 where there are 2 Willows onscreen at once.

Some Assembly Required - S2-E2

Visible crew/equipment: As Buffy goes through the door with the "Keep Out" sign on it, the shadow of a camera can be seen on the left side of the door in the last few frames of the shot.

The Puppet Show - S1-E9

Revealing mistake: When Buffy breaks into the locker, the locker is already damaged. Probably from a previous take.

I Robot, You Jane - S1-E8

Plot hole: In "I Robot, You Jane", how exactly does Willow scan Moloch out of his book when the scan is only about two thirds the width of it?

Lover's Walk - S3-E8

Revealing mistake: Early on, Spike falls down drunk. He wakes up because his hand is on fire from the sunlight. When he runs away, a little bit of fire stays on the stones where his hand was when it started.

Chosen - S7-E22

Continuity mistake: In the very last episode, Chosen, in the shot right before Spike's amulet sends out the blast through the roof, you can see an ubervamp just about to pin him against the wall and in the next shot he is standing in the middle of the area backing up toward the stairs and then he sends out the blast. There would never be enough time between the shots for Spike to break free and then go and stand in the middle of the floor.

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.

The Zeppo - S3-E13

Continuity mistake: When Xander's being threatened, the knife moves from under his chin to the side of his neck between shots.

Jon Sandys

Superstar - S4-E17

Revealing mistake: When Tara is being chased by the monster and she falls, she says a spell and white smoke comes out of her hands but it is coming out of the sleeves of her shirt, the way she holds her hands up suggests this as well.

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.
