Buffy The Vampire Slayer

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).

Becoming (1) - S2-E21

Continuity mistake: Drusilla kills Kendra by cutting open her jugular artery and leaving her to bleed to death. When Buffy enters a while later, there is not a drop of blood anywhere. (00:41:40 - 00:42:45)

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.

Inca Mummy Girl - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: When Buffy opened the trunk for the first time, the corpse of the real Ampata is lying with its head to the right of the trunk. When she opens it the second time, the corpse is lying with its head on the other side.

I Only Have Eyes For You - S2-E19

Continuity mistake: When Buffy is waiting in Principal Snyder's office, the 1955 year book slides off the bookshelf and lands open, but when Buffy walks over to pick it up, the book is closed.

Becoming (2) - S2-E22

Continuity mistake: When Joyce is being interviewed by the policemen at the house, you can see the number outside the house, but it says 163 instead of 1630, the number on which Buffy lives.

Innocence (2) - S2-E14

Continuity mistake: In Innocence, when the Scoobies are in the library, Oz (I think) says for the crew to meet outside Xander's house a half hour later. Then we cut to Buffy strolling through Sunnydale High in broad daylight, then back to Oz's van outside the military base and it's last night again. (00:23:15 - 00:29:20)

School Hard - S2-E3

Continuity mistake: When the Anointed One is killed by Spike, he disintegrates into dust. But in the overhead shot, there is no dust on the floor, even though it should have fallen through the bottom bars of the cage.

When She Was Bad - S2-E1

Audio problem: When Giles and Miss Calender are walking through the halls at the beginning of the episode there's a kid at the vending machine, we hear the coins rattling but he never puts money into the slot. In fact, the money doesn't go anywhere near the slot.

I Only Have Eyes For You - S2-E19

Audio problem: When Giles looks through the window of a door at the high school and sees the janitor yelling at the teacher, the janitor's lips don't match with what he is yelling.

Surprise (1) - S2-E13

Continuity mistake: Near the beginning when Buffy and Willow are talking about Willow getting together with Oz, Buffy's hair is in front of her ears. Then she turns to face Willow to say, "You think he's too old 'cause he's a senior? My boyfriend had a bicentennial," and in that shot change, her hair switches to behind her ear then goes back to being in front of her ears in the next shot without her every touching her hair.

When She Was Bad - S2-E1

Revealing mistake: When all the vampires are saying "for the dark", and one gets staked, there's a mark on his shirt where the stake's about to come through before it actually happens. Plus Buffy's hands are in the wrong place for her to have pushed that stake through, as well as there being no stake in her hand when the vampire gets dusted. Not only that, but the mark isn't even close to the vampire's heart to begin with. (00:34:50)

Becoming (1) - S2-E21

Continuity mistake: In 'Becoming, part 1' as Buffy kneels over Kendra's corpse you can see the door over her shoulder, it stays closed all the time. There is a cut to a shot of Buffy from behind showing a cop raising his gun, but he couldn't have come through the door without us seeing him in the last shot. (00:43:10)

School Hard - S2-E3

Continuity mistake: In this episode, when Giles is looking for information about Spike, he finds that Spike is barely 200. But, in season four episode seven we find out that Spike is actually 126. Which would make him 124 in "School Hard."

Bad Eggs - S2-E12

Revealing mistake: At the very beginning of the episode, Lyle's reflection can be seen in the tiles on the floor in the shopping mall.

Some Assembly Required - S2-E2

Continuity mistake: In the episode 'Some Assembly Required' Eric takes photos of Cordelia and Buffy near the start, when he's developing them later the poses in the photos are different to the way the girls were standing at the time. (00:06:40 - 00:19:05)

School Hard - S2-E3

Continuity mistake: When Buffy's fighting Spike at the end of the episode, there are times when it's obvious that it's James Marsters' stunt double. Spike's hair is platinum blonde, slicked back, and all one length in the back, while the stunt double's hair is more brassy, spiked in the front, and layered in the back.

I Only Have Eyes For You - S2-E19

Revealing mistake: After Buffy has entered the wasp-filled school there's a shot of the others standing outside waiting for her. In the establishing long shot if you look closely you can see they used the same shot as earlier in the episode - Buffy is standing there with them. (00:34:10)

Touched - S7-E20

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.

Touched - S7-E20

Question: How come Buffy can move so fast when she's fighting Kaleb?

Answer: She has superpowers, ergo fast movement. The reason she outruns him so easily in "Touched" is that she stops trying to actually fight him and just dodges instead.
