Buffy The Vampire Slayer

Passion - S2-E17

Deliberate mistake: After Jenny pushes the janitor's cart into Angelus and runs up the stairs, there's no physical way he could be waiting for her at the top of the stairs (even with vampiric speed). Joss Whedon has admitted in interviews that he put in this blatant continuity error as the situation is a staple of the horror genre (girl runs from villain, only to find him standing right in front of her).

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.

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.

Jon Sandys

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.

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.

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.

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.

Amends - S3-E10

Factual error: In Amends, season three, one of the movies playing at the theater is 'Abilene,' which was not released until March 13, 1999 ; three months after this episode was aired (and probably five months after it was filmed, which is interesting).

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).

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.

All The Way - S6-E6

Continuity mistake: When a vampire kicks through a car window trying to hit Buffy, some shards are still standing in the window frame. The angle changes, and the shards are gone.

Twotall

Gingerbread - S3-E11

Factual error: There is a short picture of a 17th century German newspaper. The actual text however not only is written in modern High German as opposed to Mid-High German, but also is full of errors (mixing female articles with male nouns is only one example). Funnily enough, Giles' incantation at the end of the episode is in correct German.

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.

Lover's Walk - S3-E8

Continuity mistake: In the episode Lover's Walk, when Spike is threatening Willow at the factory, in the long shots Willow's hair is up over her face, and in the close-ups it isn't. The pointed bit of the bottle is at the top or bottom in different shots too.

Doublemeat Palace - S6-E12

Continuity mistake: As Buffy is being trained at the register, the receipt at the top of the register switches in every shot.

Earshot - S3-E18

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Buffy is fighting the big scary lunch lady, look closely in the far away shots because you can see that the big lunch lady is now a skinny little stunt double.

xx:xx:xx

The Weight Of The World - S5-E21

Continuity mistake: When Glory is griping about human emotion, her arms change between wide shots and closeups.

xx:xx:xx

Phoenix

Witch - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: When Xander and Willow are talking in the hall about his invisibility, the pen Willow toys with changes position back and forth between front and reverse shots.

Phoenix

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).

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.
