Out Of Mind, Out Of Sight - S1-E11

Visible crew/equipment: At the very end, as the invisible girl gets taken along a corridor by the FBI agents, check the top of the screen - a boom mike creeps in as the agent says his line, then is withdrawn.

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?

THGhost

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.

THGhost

The Harsh Light Of Day - S4-E3

Continuity mistake: When Spike finally gets into the area where the gem is and Harmony follows him up there, he puts on that necklace thinking it's the gem. When he realizes Harmony has the gem it shows him taking off the necklace. It cuts to another shot and then shows him again with the necklace, but minus the charm.

Real Me - S5-E2

Visible crew/equipment: When Willow and Tara are talking about Dawn, just as Willow turns around from hanging her picture to say "help?", a boom mike drops in from the top of the screen. (00:18:35)

Anne - S3-E1

Revealing mistake: When Buffy runs in front of the car you can see knee pads on her knees. You have to look quite closely because they are the same colour as her tights. (00:15:00)

Him - S7-E6

Visible crew/equipment: During the scene where Willow and Anya fall in love with RJ after he visits Buffy's house, and everyone but Dawn runs off to do their thing, the camera pans to Dawn and a woman with a maroon, long sleeved shirt is briefly visible standing on the stairs to Dawn's right.

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. (00:34:00)

Prophecy Girl - S1-E12

Continuity mistake: When Buffy drowns in Prophecy Girl, she falls into the pool with her hair tied in a ponytail and her arms under her. When she is discovered by Angel and Xander, her arms are by her sides and her hair is loose. (00:33:55)

The Harsh Light Of Day - S4-E3

Continuity mistake: When Spike pins Harmony to the wall, his hands change from flat against her to grasping her shoulders, depending on the angle. (00:12:00)

Intervention - S5-E18

Continuity mistake: Huge continuity gaffe. When Anya and Xander see Spike and the robot in the graveyard it is nightime. Xander goes back to speak to Spike almost immediately and sees Glory's followers kidnapping him. He wakes goes back to Buffy's house and from there they, again almost immediately, go looking for Glory's house - and it is the broadest of broad daylight. You could see it was still night before they left through the windows of the house. It also begs the question of how they got Spike from Glory's house back to his crypt in the sunlight since they had no blanket. (00:26:20 - 00:28:50)

Revelations - S3-E7

Revealing mistake: In 'Revelations' when Buffy and Faith are fighting, the kick Faith aims at Buffy's face right after she says 'We can work this out' very noticeably misses, but Buffy still reacts as though it landed. (00:36:15)

Shay

The Puppet Show - S1-E9

Visible crew/equipment: When Buffy is searching through the backstage area (before the chandelier falls on her), there is a mirror in the background. At one point in the mirror, you can see the reflection of a crew member. Pause for a better look but it can be seen at normal speed.

Guy

The Killer In Me - S7-E13

Continuity mistake: Spike tells Buffy about drugs The Initiative would give him when his chip started firing after he was first captured. This is wrong in two ways: firstly, we saw most of Spike's time in captivity, and he escaped before they could drug him, and secondly, he didn't even know he had a chip until he escaped and tried to kill Willow.

Shay

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.

Shay

Tabula Rasa - S6-E8

Continuity mistake: When Buffy and Dawn are discussing Buffy's new name choice Dawn's hair changes repeatedly between shots. First it's over her shoulders, then behind, she has a clip in one shot, then she doesn't.

The Wish - S3-E9

Continuity mistake: Anyanka's demon face in "The Wish" is very different to her demon face any of the other times we see her ("Entropy", "Selfless" etc).

Shay

Gone - S6-E11

Revealing mistake: The entire time invisible Buffy is on Spike's bed, she makes absolutely no impression on the mattress and sheet underneath her. (00:29:55)

Phoenix

The Wish - S3-E9

Continuity mistake: In the episode 'The Wish', when Xander stakes Angel he is thrown to Buffy's left, away from the machine. Seconds later as Buffy walks forward it cuts to a shot of Xander fighting to her right, on the other side of the machine. (00:41:25)

Bargaining (1) - S6-E1

[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.
