Doublemeat Palace - S6-E12

Continuity mistake: When Timothy shows Buffy how to use the grill, there is a wood-handled grill press, and another tool, right in front of the button panel. However, after he says, "It eliminates variation," in the close-up as he presses the button, both tools as well as the transparent plastic glove he wears have all vanished. (Another mistake notes a different close-up with a disappearing glove.) (00:17:25)

Doublemeat Palace - S6-E12

Continuity mistake: When Buffy is assigned to the grill, as Timothy explains the process he's wearing a short-sleeved orange/white stripe uniform. In the close-up, when he places the second patty on the grill, Timothy is wearing a 3/4 sleeve, dark blue shirt. (00:17:15)

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

Continuity mistake: When the vampire breaks the glass with his head, the remaining glass disappears.


The Wish - S3-E9

Visible crew/equipment: There's a boom mic visible when Cordelia is talking to Harmony and the other Cordettes. It's the first scene in the alternate universe and they're standing inside a classroom of Sunnydale High (Cordy says something about going to the Bronze).


Restless - S4-E22

Revealing mistake: In Xander's dream, when he climbs into the back of the ice cream van, for a split second before the window goes out of view the backdrop cuts out and the blue screen is visible. Only visible in widescreen version.


Phases - S2-E15

Continuity mistake: When Willow shows up at Oz's house to talk, her hair keeps switching back and forth between being behind her back or in front of her shoulders.

Showtime - S7-E11

Continuity mistake: Towards the end of the episode, during Buffy's fight with the Turok-Han, at the construction location, her shoes are very obviously some sort of practical flat shoe, but during her speech afterwards, she is wearing fashion boots with heels.

Normal Again - S6-E17

Revealing mistake: Right at the beginning of the episode just before we see Warren squirt Jonathan with water, we see Buffy on one of their security cameras. The footage of her is pre-recorded as the progress bar for QuickTime Media Player is visible at the bottom of the screen. The window was moved down to hide this fact, but not far down enough to hide it completely.


Normal Again - S6-E17

Continuity mistake: After Buffy decides not to take the antidote to the demon's venom, we cut to a scene at the mental institution. The doctor talks to her about ridding her mind of the things that support her "hallucinations". As he talks to her about this, the position of his hands change from pressed together in front of him to in his pockets between shots.


Bargaining (1) - S6-E1

Visible crew/equipment: At the beginning of the episode after the Buffybot kills the remaining vampires and the rest of the gang is grouped together, the shadow of a boom mic can be seen below a tall gravestone behind Giles, far right of the screen.


Intervention - S5-E18

Continuity mistake: When the gang are fighting Glory's minions, one of them knocks Giles to the ground and then tries to choke him. As Giles hits the ground he lands facing downwards so we can't see his face. But when the minion is chocking him in the shot immediately afterward, he is suddenly facing upwards.


I Was Made To Love You - S5-E15

Audio problem: When Spike arrives at the magic shop with a burning blanket over his head, he throws it to the ground and stomps on it, yelling, "Fire! Fire!" As he yells "Fire! Fire!" however, his lips aren't moving.


Spiral - S5-E20

Visible crew/equipment: When Ben arrives in his car and discovers the Knights of Byzantium, the shadow of a camera on a crane can be seen in the bottom left corner of the screen as he pulls up.


A New Man - S4-E12

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene in Xander's basement a stage light is reflected in his television's screen. It isn't the light coming from his lamp because the reflection in the television's screen is still there once he turns it off.


Doppelgangland - S3-E16

Revealing mistake: Near the end when the good Willow says goodbye to the evil Willow and hugs her, there is a shot of the back of the good Willow's head and the evil Willow's face. You can tell that the good Willow is a body double wearing a wig - there's something circular near her scalp, possibly an elastic band.


Passion - S2-E17

Audio problem: Jenny prints off the translation for the Ritual of Restoration from her computer, then spots Angel sitting across the room from her. As she gets up and starts walking towards him the sound of the printer can be heard but the paper has already finished printing.


Superstar - S4-E17

Revealing mistake: When Jonathan assists Buffy at the beginning of the episode, he enters through the glass ceiling of the mausoleum, which shatters into squares. Although the audio is the sound of glass shattering, the pieces of "glass" flutter down, revealing that the squares are paper - simply for the safety of the actor during the stunt. (00:05:00)


Chosen - S7-E22

Continuity mistake: As Buffy runs through the collapsing school her hand moves up and down the length of the scythe, between shots, with no time for her to move it.


Once More, With Feeling - S6-E7

Audio problem: In the final song "Where Do We Go From Here", you can hear Spike still singing even after he has apparently stopped. He and Buffy continue singing until after the line 'When do the trumpets cheer'. It is noticeable because James Marsters sings the word 'cheer' slightly out of sync with everyone else.

Doublemeat Palace - S6-E12

Continuity mistake: When Buffy is being offered the 'doublemeat medley' burger by her boss, the burger looks different in close up than in the long shots. In the close shot, the burger looks overall bigger, more filling is visible and there is more lettuce sticking out.

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.



The accent that Giles uses as his teenage self is Anthony Head's natural accent.
