The Puppet Show - S1-E9

Visible crew/equipment: When Buffy, Willow, Xander and Giles all agree that Morgan is their one suspect, a camera and a cameraman can be seen in the reflection of the glass in the door labeled "Librarian", right after Buffy says, "Uh, priority check, Giles." A boom mic is also reflected in the top right of the glass when Buffy finishes her line with "talent show murder!" The mic can be seen throughout the rest of the scene from two different camera angles.

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

I Robot, You Jane - S1-E8

Continuity mistake: Buffy's birthdate starts at 1979. In "I Robot, You Jane", when the demon pulls up Buffy's file in the school system, it shows her year of birth as 1980 and her year as sophomore. But when her file comes up on the student's computer screen, it's changed to 1979 and that she is a senior. It wasn't until towards the end of season 1 in "Nightmares" that her birth year is 1981 (on her tombstone before she comes out as a vampire).

Angel - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: Vampires can't enter a house unless invited. Throughout Buffy this appears to be some kind of force field, as if the vampire has run into a brick wall. But in this episode, the vampire chasing Buffy and Angel gets its arm through Buffy's front door.

The Harvest (2) - S1-E2

Audio problem: When everyone is in the Bronze - just before the vamps show up - you hear the first line of a song being played, Ballad For Dead Friends by Dashboard Prophets, cut to outside and you see the vamps strolling along and killing the doorman, then cut back into the Bronze and the same line plays again. This is a total error in cutting the show, it is stated there is no live band but still the same line plays twice when that is not how the song goes.

The Harvest (2) - S1-E2

Audio problem: When Buffy kills the vampires dragging Xander at the beginning, we hear two impact sounds but don't hear either of them turn to dust. They were only a few feet away and there was no other sound to cover it up.

The Pack - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: When Willow hides under the table in the classroom after fleeing the pack, we see that it is on legs and doesn't touch the floor. Yet when Xander comes in and scans the room, he sees the table but Willow's feet aren't visible, even though they should be judging by the height of the table from the floor.

Witch - S1-E3

Teacher's Pet - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: When Buffy finds Dr. Gregory's glasses on the lab floor she places them on the table, from the long shot she places them at the left end of the table near a plastic tub with a white lid, with the glasses open. Then it cuts to a close up where they are in front of a book on the right side of the table and are closed. Then cut back to the long shot and they are in the original place.

Nightmares - S1-E10

Continuity mistake: In the scene where we see Buffy's mum drop her off at school, when Buffy is worrying that her dad will not show up, we firstly see Joyce's seatbelt is on. We then see her again and it is still on. However after the shot goes back from Buffy to herself, we can see her seatbelt is off. Then when the shot comes back to her again it is back on.

Nightmares - S1-E10

Revealing mistake: When Xander punches out the evil clown if you freeze-frame you can see the punch missed the clown by quite a distance, I noticed it without freezing it but it's better to see if you do.

Nightmares - S1-E10

Revealing mistake: When Willow opens the door to the basement to look for Buffy, the shot looking up the basement's staircase shows Willow's shadow on the inside of the door. In the previous shot when she opened the door, it opens towards a wall and a staircase to the second floor. But there is no light source coming from the wall or the staircase, giving the impression that the basement was filmed on a separate set.

Prophecy Girl - S1-E12

Other mistake: The Master's skeleton, before it is destroyed, looks to be female and not male. (Note the wide hips and large birth canal-like hole.) Also in the Next season's "When she was bad," they have another shot of the same skeleton, however the hips are much smaller and more male.

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.
