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.

However, when the shot changes and he drinks it, he tips the cup almost 45 degrees before putting his lips to the cup and drinking. If the cup had been as full as previously shown, the blood would have begun pouring out long before Spike ever drank form it.

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.

Mistakes

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.

Trivia

In addition to singing "Rest in Peace," James Marsters also played the song's guitar track.
