Buffy The Vampire Slayer

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.

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)

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

Visible crew/equipment: In the last scene after Buffy jumps through the window into her mother's room, Faith and Buffy begin to fight. The two wrestle into the hall and begin to roll down the stairs. There is a side view shot then a front view shot. In the front view shot you can see a camera moving downward just outside the bannister and out of shot. Only visible in widescreen versions.

The Freshman - S4-E1

Visible crew/equipment: When Buffy and Xander are doing some research, check the left side of the screen in a wide shot, when Xander asks "how far back do the disappearances go?" You may need to turn the brightness up, but there's a boom mike bobbing around. (00:34:25)

Where The Wild Things Are - S4-E18

Visible crew/equipment: When Xander and Anya pull over in the ice-cream van, the front windscreen is very reflective. To avoid reflecting the camera crew, a giant screen was put in front of the ice-cream van - which, ironically, is reflected in the windscreen. It isn't a reflection of another vehicle parked in front of them as the thing that is reflected is a curved shape.

Pangs - S4-E8

Visible crew/equipment: During the scene of the siege at Giles', there is a shot where an Indian guy jumps through the window and helps himself by holding on to the sill. If you look to the left side of the screen, you can see it's a moving wall and that several hands of crew members are holding it so it doesn't shake.

Wild At Heart - S4-E6

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where Willow visits Xander to discuss what may be going on with Oz; towards the end of the scene, when the camera is on Willow, you can see the sound mike at the top left of the screen next to the green crate in two different shots.

A New Man - S4-E12

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene in Xander's basement a stage light is reflected in his television's screen. It isn't the light coming from his lamp because the reflection in the television's screen is still there once he turns it off.

THGhost

Goodbye Iowa - S4-E14

Visible crew/equipment: When Buffy and Riley are talking at the crime scene, where he tells her about Maggie Walsh's death, one of the camera shots has a very visible black border around the entire edge of the screen as if the lens shade was visible in front of the lens and could be seen in the shot. (00:18:20 - 00:19:40)

Halloween - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: 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. (00:34:05)

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.

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.
