Buffy The Vampire Slayer

Teacher's Pet - S1-E4

Corrected entry: Doctor Gregory is giving the class a lecture about ants. But he projects an image of a beetle onto the wall behind him.


Correction: Actually there was a beetle and an ant in the projection behind him, he even points to the ant just before he turns the projector off.

Prophecy Girl - S1-E12

Corrected entry: Xander looks for Angel's help to save Buffy from the Master, yet, no human knew where Angel lived, so how would Xander know where Angel lived?


Correction: Earlier in the episode Giles calls Angel on the phone. The audience is previously unaware of the info that Giles knows his phone number, so there is no reason we would know whether or not his address is also known.

Angel - S1-E7

Corrected entry: In the scene where Buffy is walking away from Willow and Xander to leave the Bronze, you see her holding a dark jacket right after she feels Angel's presence behind her. As she is walking down the street you can see she is wearing a dark jacket, either dark brown or black. The following scene, she is still walking but wearing a light baby blue colored jacket.



Correction: This is a lighting issue. If you look closely, the jacket is slightly reflective and if there is shadowing due to angles or low light the color is indeterminate.

Angel - S1-E7

Corrected entry: When Angel and Buffy are running away from three vampires chasing them, as Buffy runs into her house she seems to shout 'David come on' instead of Angel (David Boreanaz).


Correction: She says "get in, come on".

Nightmares - S1-E10

Corrected entry: In the scene where the Bogeyman comes down the hospital corridor and Buffy (who has been turned into a vampire as part of her nightmare) attacks him, she steps into direct sunlight, then runs and jumps the bogeyman in a sunny corridor, without any apparent ill effects.


Correction: She's been made into a vampire by the boy's nightmares warping reality. Vampires in his nightmares might be able to walk in sunlight just fine.

Witch - S1-E3

Corrected entry: When Cordelia see one of the girls trying out for the cheerleading squad, she makes the comment "Who does she think she is, a Laker Girl?", Charisma Carpenter was a Laker Girl in real life.

Correction: She was a cheerleader for the San Diego Chargers, which makes this not really trivia.

Maria Santos

Out Of Mind, Out Of Sight - S1-E11

Corrected entry: When Angel is speaking to Giles in the library about the book of prophecy, he is standing in direct sunlight through the window.

Correction: Though it appears to be a window due to the angle of the shot, it is in fact a square light, and it can be seen through an actual window that it is night time.

The Harvest (2) - S1-E2

Corrected entry: On the night of the Harvest, Cordelia says that she is going to the Bronze - its a Friday. Strangely enough, everyone seems to be back at school the next day - a Saturday.

00:18:20 - 00:42:50


Correction: There is nothing in the school scene after the Harvest stating that it is the following day. It could be the Monday.

The Harvest (2) - S1-E2

Corrected entry: The stake Xander uses to kill Jesse disappears immediately afterward. It's not in Xander's hand, but if it was buried in Jesse's chest it would have clattered to the ground as he turned to dust.



Correction: If a stake in in a vampires chest & not touching another person then the stake also turns to dust (this has happened to various other vampires in the series).

Angel - S1-E7

Corrected entry: In the episode "Angel" in series one, in the best tradition of old Western movies, Darla seems to have a limitless supply of bullets in the final shoot out - despite never reloading her guns.

00:38:10 - 00:39:05

Correction: She fires less than thirty shots and each of her two guns has fifteen. Angel stakes her before she needs to reload.

Teacher's Pet - S1-E4

Corrected entry: At the end of the episode, "Teachers Pet," Buffy picks Dr. Gregory's glasses from off the floor, opens the closet where his lab coat is hanging and places the glasses in the pocket. As she closes the door, the camera moves to the bottom of the closet and you can see about four or five bug eggs, one of them cracks open and then the show ends. What happened with the eggs?

Correction: We don't know, but there are numerous possibilities. The simplest one is that without the care of their mother, the eggs or the newborns were not able to survive.


I Robot, You Jane - S1-E8

Corrected entry: How does Buffy manage to follow Dave to the CRD building so easily when he's driving and she isn't? Even with Buffy's superspeed she can't run as fast as a car - she would lose Dave in a few minutes.

Correction: We don't know the route Dave took from the high school to CRD. Dave has to follow the rules of the road such as stopping at red lights & not endangering other road users. Buffy can also use short cuts such as cutting through gardens & other types of property.

The Harvest (2) - S1-E2

Corrected entry: Cordelia tells Buffy there's no cover charge to get into the Bronze, but later that episode, right before the vampires attack the Bronze, the bouncer is taking money from people on their way in.

00:18:20 - 00:31:50

Correction: The bouncer demands ID from the approaching vampire pack and gets upset when they don't show him any, but he didn't get any ID from Buffy or other patrons. It's possible that the bouncer has an understood relationship with underage clubgoers: pass over some cash instead of ID. Buffy would have learned about this earlier from Cordelia (after Cordelia insulted Willow but before Buffy went to speak to her).


The Harvest (2) - S1-E2

Corrected entry: When Buffy is gathering supplies in her bedroom, we see all of the usual vampire fighting supplies, such as crosses, holy water, and stakes. In addition to these, she has a jar of communion wafers. What are these supposed to do against a vampire?

Correction: According to Dracula and other legends, the Host repulses vampires just like crosses do (though there is no evidence that they actually harm them, perhaps explaining why they are not seen anywhere else on the show).


Welcome To The Hellmouth (1) - S1-E1

Corrected entry: In Welcome to the Hellmouth when Buffy is looking for the vampire with Willow, she snaps a leg off a chair. However, when she tries to stake Cordelia with it, it has magically turned into a proper stake.

Correction: No it isn't - you can see it in the shot on Buffy's face when she is pinning Cordelia - the stake tip is slanted like the table leg.


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

Corrected entry: In 'Never Kill A Boy On The First Date' Giles says he has no instruction manual, but it's later revealed in 'What's My Line' that there's a Slayer Handbook.


Correction: Giles tells Buffy that HE has no instruction manual. The Slayer Handbook is for the Slayer, not the Watcher.

Prophecy Girl - S1-E12

Corrected entry: The Master is described as a vampire, albeit a very old one, but when staked, his skeleton remains so that it can be used in the next series. Why doesn't it turn to dust like every other vampire?

Correction: The Master is the oldest vampire known - thats exactly why. He's so old, his body is too powerful to simply collapse into dust with the poke of a piece of wood. This was actually stated in one episode of Buffy, although not in such mundane terms.


Out Of Mind, Out Of Sight - S1-E11

Corrected entry: In 'Out of Mind, Out of Sight' Giles says that it's a lack of people noticing her added to the mystical strength of the Hellmouth that turned Marcy invisible, but at the end of the episode it's revealed that there's a whole classroom of people who have turned invisible. How did all of them turn invisible without the Hellmouth's influence?


Correction: At the end of the series you learn that there are other Hellmouths. Giles even states that there's one in Cleveland.

The Puppet Show - S1-E9

Corrected entry: How come the other performers seem to have disappeared during the climactic fight between the Scoobies and the Demon in the Puppet Show? Come to think of it, why are the audience so quiet too?

Correction: They were getting ready to go on, and as for the audience they were waiting for the show to start.

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.



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