Buffy The Vampire Slayer

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?

Halloween - S2-E6

Other mistake: When Buffy and Willow find the picture of the noblewoman in the Watcher's Diaries, Buffy asks "Who is she?" and Willow replies "It doesn't say", but if you watch closely you can see that during the brief shot of the book her name is visible next to her picture.

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).

Bewitched, Bothered And Bewildered - S2-E16

Other mistake: Joyce tells Cordelia to grab some bandages for Xander from the bathroom upstairs. Joyce and Xander are in the kitchen and there is a small corridor that leads to the stairs, but Cordelia goes around the other way leading to the living room. Fair enough, Cordelia made a mistake. She isn't that bright. But she returns with the bandages coming back from the living room. Why come downstairs and then go All The Way around through the living room when she could have just walked down the small corridor?

Becoming (1) - S2-E21

Other mistake: At the beginning of the episode when Giles visits the archaeologists who have obtained the obelisk, it appears to be much too tall/wide to have fit through the door.

School Hard - S2-E3

Other mistake: As Spike is walking down the hall, you can see a reflection of his head on a locker to his left.

Surprise (1) - S2-E13

Other mistake: When Buffy and Angel escape from Spike, Dru and the Judge they jump down into the sewer, then run all of five metres before going up the ladder to escape. When they come out of the sewer they are in a very open area with the factory nowhere in sight. They have not travelled far enough for this to be the case. (00:39:15)

Becoming (2) - S2-E22

Other mistake: When Willow is attempting the spell in the hospital, the subtitles state that Xander is speaking a line of the incantation. It is actually Oz speaking - Xander is off rescuing Giles, as we see in the very next shot.

When She Was Bad - S2-E1

Other mistake: At the end of the episode Willow mentions going to the Bronze on a Wednesday night, Buffy also mentions to Giles that she got almost everyone killed on the second day of school. From the different clothing being worn each day, it's obviously been more than 2 school days and should instead be Thursday by the end of the episode.

Killed By Death - S2-E18

Other mistake: In the basement when Death throws Ryan to the floor, Ryan lands pretty softly considering that he was just thrown pretty hard.

Killed By Death - S2-E18

Other mistake: Buffy freaks out when she's first taken to the hospital. Joyce tells the gang it was because her cousin died when they were young, but in season one episode "Angel" Buffy has no problem being in the hospital, same with later seasons.

The Puppet Show - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: After Buffy finds Morgan's brain, Willow pulls up Morgan's school file on one of the library computers without even touching the keyboard. One moment the monitor is on the desktop, the next it's showing Morgan's file.

Homecoming - S3-E5

Question: In this episode Oz says "As Willow goes, so goes my nation". Is this a variation on a famous quote, and if so, which?

Jon Sandys Premium member

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.
