Anne - S3-E1

Revealing mistake: During the fight scene at the end when Buffy is fighting the demons you see her throw one of the demons off the platform. If you watch him fall you can see him land safely on a conveniently placed mat. (00:38:10)

Dead Man's Party - S3-E2

Audio problem: The drummer in Oz's band's movements don't match the song that is heard when we first see them performing at Buffy's house.

Dead Man's Party - S3-E2

Continuity mistake: When Buffy decides to leave again and goes to her room to pack, her door is three quarters shut when she goes in, half open when Willow comes in and almost fully open when Joyce comes in. At no point does anybody touch this door.

THGhost

Anne - S3-E1

Other mistake: In the episode 'Anne' Kenn tells Buffy that time in his hell dimension passes more quickly, that one day on Earth is the same as 100 years in his dimension. This means time goes roughly 36,000 times quicker. When Lily falls into the portal, it's at least 10 seconds until Buffy jumps in after her, but Lily is still just sitting there looking stunned. If times moves that much faster, 10 seconds would become over 4 days. Would Lily still have been just sitting there?

Anne - S3-E1

Continuity mistake: In episode 'Anne', when fighting the hell dimension demons Buffy's shoes change from trainers to plain pumps in different shots.

The Prom - S3-E20

Continuity mistake: When Angel finds Buffy's notepad on the floor, it jumps from one end of the table that he puts it on to the other between shots when Joyce comes round.

The Zeppo - S3-E13

Visible crew/equipment: As Xander shows Buffy and Willow his car, a camera man can be seen reflected on the right side of the car as he films it.

THGhost

Dead Man's Party - S3-E2

Continuity mistake: When Pat puts on the demon mask and punches Buffy into the bedroom door, she hits the door with her back and then falls to the floor on her face. In the immediate shot she hits the floor again, but this time on her back.

Graduation Day (1) - S3-E21

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene at Buffy's house, her mum comes into her room and says "Buffy, I'm home". As she says this a boom mic is visible above her head.

Earshot - S3-E18

Continuity mistake: The time on the clock, when Buffy spots Jonathan, changes dramatically between shots.

The Wish - S3-E9

Continuity mistake: Near the start of 'The Wish', the scene where Cordelia is talking to the Cordettes and meets Anya. During the close-ups of Harmony, Anya is standing to camera right of the brunette Cordette behind her. A few seconds later when the shot is further away Anya is standing camera left of the Cordette. (00:05:40)

Graduation Day (2) - S3-E22

Plot hole: In 'Graduation Day pt 2' the Mayor has his vampires stand at the bottom of the steps leading out of the school to stop any escaping students. The thing is, all the parents managed to escape out the side exits. Since the Mayor was expecting all the students to try and run too, why didn't he have these exits covered? (00:33:15)

Shay

Earshot - S3-E18

Other mistake: When Angel is in Buffy's room, feeding her the potion, the window is curtain-free, allowing the room to fill with sunshine which can be seen on Angel's back.

Revelations - S3-E7

Continuity mistake: When the female watcher is being destroyed after Buffy cuts off her arm. Her sleeve is empty, which is not possible, as Buffy could not have removed the arm but not the sleeve. Also the arm on the floor is removed at the elbow, but the watcher has lost the entire arm in a previous shot.

The Wish - S3-E9

Continuity mistake: When Buffy is walking forwards through Angel's dust in 'The Wish' there's a vampire running towards her, only a few steps behind. Then there's a shot of her walking forwards taken from another angle, then when we can see behind her again the same vampire hasn't moved forwards at all, he's still running from 3 steps behind her. (00:41:25)

Revelations - S3-E7

Revealing mistake: In 'Revelations' when Buffy and Faith are fighting, the kick Faith aims at Buffy's face right after she says 'We can work this out' very noticeably misses, but Buffy still reacts as though it landed. (00:36:15)

Shay

Amends - S3-E10

Factual error: In Amends, season three, one of the movies playing at the theater is 'Abilene,' which was not released until March 13, 1999 ; three months after this episode was aired (and probably five months after it was filmed, which is interesting). (00:43:10)

The Wish - S3-E9

Continuity mistake: Anyanka's demon face in "The Wish" is very different to her demon face any of the other times we see her ("Entropy", "Selfless" etc).

Shay

Gingerbread - S3-E11

Factual error: There is a short picture of a 17th century German newspaper. The actual text however not only is written in modern High German as opposed to Mid-High German, but also is full of errors (mixing female articles with male nouns is only one example). Funnily enough, Giles' incantation at the end of the episode is in correct German. (00:30:45)

The Wish - S3-E9

Continuity mistake: In the episode 'The Wish', when Xander stakes Angel he is thrown to Buffy's left, away from the machine. Seconds later as Buffy walks forward it cuts to a shot of Xander fighting to her right, on the other side of the machine. (00:41:25)

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.
