Buffy The Vampire Slayer

Goodbye Iowa - S4-E14

Continuity mistake: When Buffy is talking to Riley, she puts the scarf on her head, on his hand. He talks to her and says "Maybe I am the bad guy," and in the next frame her scarf is back on her head again, then off again in the next frame. (00:24:20)

Superstar - S4-E17

Visible crew/equipment: After Tara is found in the Janitor's closet and brought back to her room as Willow & Buffy come in, there is a mirror to the left of the door. It has a scarf draped over it to prevent it from reflecting things it shouldn't, but the bottom right corner is still exposed and in it you can see glimpses of the crew moving around behind the camera.

Superstar - S4-E17

Continuity mistake: Right before Buffy snatches Jonathan's book off Anya and she says, "Hey, I was just at the part where he invents the Internet!" The book pages are blank, however, as Buffy snatches it from her, the pages have writing on them.

THGhost

Wild At Heart - S4-E6

Continuity mistake: When Oz leaves and holds Willow close to him, the position of their noses changes depending on the camera angle. In the shots of OZ they're pressed together and in the shots of Willow they're not.

This Year's Girl (1) - S4-E15

Continuity mistake: In the scene near the end when Faith is putting Joyce's lipstick on in the mirror and taunting her, it is obvious that the make-up department forgot to put Faith's tattoo on her upper arm. It's obvious if you watch back and forth between the mirror and the shot of Faith standing and turning, there is no evidence of a tattoo that has been established Faith has in the previous season.

Hush - S4-E10

Visible crew/equipment: The demons known as "The Gentlemen" always float about two inches off the ground. In one scene, two of them are moving through a park, and you can see the light blue cart they are standing on. (00:32:15)

The Initiative - S4-E7

Factual error: In "The Initiative," Riley is looking for Spike with a heat sensitive camera and says "we've got a cold one." If Spike was at room temperature as indicated on the sensor, he would be indistinguishable from from the air and objects in the room. (00:37:30)

The Harsh Light Of Day - S4-E3

Continuity mistake: When Spike finally gets into the area where the gem is and Harmony follows him up there, he puts on that necklace thinking it's the gem. When he realizes Harmony has the gem it shows him taking off the necklace. It cuts to another shot and then shows him again with the necklace, but minus the charm.

School Hard - S2-E3

Vampire: And when I kill her, it will be the greatest event since the crucifixion. And I should know, I was there.
Spike: You were there?! If every vampire who said he was actually at the crucifixion really was there, it would've been like Woodstock!

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.
