Buffy The Vampire Slayer

Halloween - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: 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. (00:34:05)

Killed By Death - S2-E18

Continuity mistake: While Buffy is in the hospital, they zoom in on the bedside clock changing from 2:26 to 2:27. In the next shot of Buffy, you can see the clock in the background and it reads 12:15.

What's My Line? (1) - S2-E9

Plot hole: If Spike and his gang only take a few hours to break through the door to Ford's club in 'Lie To Me' (which we are told is six feet of solid steel), why can't Angel break through a thin wire door that visibly shakes every time he hits it, given the same amount of time? (00:38:05)

Phases - S2-E15

Continuity mistake: When Willow is running from the werewolf she falls and there's a big mud stain on her pants. In the next scene when she runs into the library it's gone. (00:37:00)

Phases - S2-E15

Audio problem: As Buffy says to Xander, "Tell that to Theresa. She could have used my defending before she was ripped apart by a..." and Xander finishes her sentence by saying, "Werewolf", his lips don't match what he says.

THGhost

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

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).

School Hard - S2-E3

Continuity mistake: While studying at the Bronze, Buffy and Willow leave their books on the table to go and dance. Spike calls them outside to fight a vampire, and when Xander runs back inside to grab a stake the books have all been put back into Buffy's bag. (00:14:00 - 00:15:45)

Inca Mummy Girl - S2-E4

Audio problem: When Xander, Willow and Ampata meet up at The Bronze, the song the band is playing is at the point of a guitar solo. If you watch Oz (who has already been established as 'lead guitarist') on stage in the background; he's blatantly NOT playing that solo. The hand movements don't match up.

Phases - S2-E15

Continuity mistake: When Willow is escaping from Oz the werewolf she runs into the library, where Giles is. In the first shot, he isn't wearing his glasses, then in the next shot he is, then he isn't, then again in the next shot he is. (00:37:05)

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?

Chosen answer: "So goes the nation" seems to have been used on many occasions, with various different US states in the "As .... goes" section. Most commonly it seems to be California that's considered to lead the way, but probably most other states have appeared in the lead role at some point or another. Other things have also been used - no less a person that Pope John Paul II said "As the family goes, so goes the nation...". The origin of the quote format is unclear - in US politics it goes back into the 19th century, when it was Maine that held the title spot, but, while no definitive origin is known, it seems highly likely that it goes back considerably further than that.
