Buffy The Vampire Slayer

Trivia: There have been several lines throughout the series have referred to Tuesday ('There's a demon trying to destroy the world and it's just another Tuesday night in Sunnydale' in Revelations and 'Dawn's in trouble. Must be Tuesday' in Once More With Feeling). These are references to the fact that, in the USA, Buffy is aired on a Tuesday.

Trivia: Buffy's prophetic dreams gave several hints about Dawn long before her arrival. In 'Graduation Day, Part 2', season 3, dream Faith tells her 'little sis' is coming', and in 'Restless', season 4, dream Tara warns her 'Be back before Dawn'.

Trivia: The 'Grrr Arrrg' monster at the end of each episode (ie. the mascot for Mutant Enemy Inc.) is something that alot of people watch through the credits to see. But if you watch at the end of 'Becoming', he walks past and says 'Boo hoo, I need a hug'...and at the end of 'Once More With Feeling' he sings his 'Grrr Arrrg'...and in the Episode 'Bargaining Pt. 1' Tara gives Giles a small monster as a goodbye present, 'Something to remind you of Sunnydale...' and then goes 'Grrr Arrrg'....Ain't little monster's grand. Also at the end of the Christmas episode where Angel tries to kill himself, the monster is wearing a santa hat, and, at the end of the graduation episode, the monster is wearing a mortar board.

Trivia: Buffy's chums are regularly referred to as 'The Scooby Gang' which is funny, because Sarah Michelle Gellar actually went on to become an original Scooby as Daphne in Scooby-Doo, the movie.

Trivia: Many elements of Xander's dream in 'Restless', season 4, were seen again in the season 6 episode 'Tabula Rasa'. In the dream, Spike wears a tweed suit and tells Xander he's in training to be a Watcher (Giles adds "Spike's like a son to me."), also mentioning 'A shark, but on land. A land shark'. In 'Tabula Rasa' Spike is under threat from a loan shark (literally a shark), disguises himself in a tweed suit and after a spell gone wrong believes he might be Giles' son.

Trivia: Buffy and Willow were the only characters who appeared in every episode. Because it would have been difficult to incorporate a storyline for him, Xander is missing only from "Conversations With Dead People."

Trivia: Before production began, an idea popped up that Buffy would be able to identify a vampire solely by their outdated clothes. While this idea was eventually abandoned, it was toyed with in "Welcome to the Hellmouth" when Buffy sees Willow talking to a vampire in 70s-style dress with his sleeves rolled up and his collar upturned.

Trivia: In the episode where we learn about Anya's past, there is a flashback to the "Once More With Feeling" episode. Just before Anya closes the door, if you listen very carefully you can hear a prequel to the Mustard Song. Once again it is sung by David Fury and I believe Marti Noxon sings the female part as a prequel to her parking ticket song, and sounds a bit like "Oh no. Mustard on my shirt," "Mustard, I'll never get it out." "My favorite red shirt." "Dryclean it.""How could you serve..." "Mustard."

Trivia: Nicholas Brendon, who plays Xander, in real life has a stuttering problem and can overcome it by knowing what he's going to say: e.g. scripted, rehearsed material. He said in an interview that he has slowly over the years gotten over the stuttering, but has to work hard at his craft at learning exact lines and rehearsing them over and over again. He doesn't do a lot of live interviews because of this.

Trivia: Joss Whedon also wrote the 1992 "Buffy" film. Because of the dramatic differences between his screenplay and the finished film, he doesn't consider it canon as established by the TV series. In fact, the series isn't based on the completed movie at all: it's based instead on the screenplay Whedon initially wrote.

Trivia: While Joss Whedon considers the 1992 movie non-canon, two characters were carried over: Buffy herself (obviously), and her first Watcher, Merrick. Merrick only made one appearance on the show, through a flashback, and was played by Richard Riehle; in the film, he was played by Donald Sutherland.

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.

Willow is turned into a ghost. Throughout the entire episode, she can't touch anything (can't turn the pages of a book, etc.), yet towards the end when she and Giles go to Ethan's shop, and she leaves, you can hear that she opened and closed the door, even though she can walk through walls and can't actually touch the door. The curtain moves when she leaves too.
