I Was Made To Love You - S5-E15

Continuity mistake: At the end of the episode when Buffy is sitting on the swing set with April, she tells April that Warren was proud of her and didn't mean to hurt her. Before she tells her this, April's hair is in front of one of the chains of her swing on the right side of her face. But after Buffy tells her, her hair is behind the chain of the swing.

Blood Ties - S5-E13

Continuity mistake: When Ben brings him and Dawn some hot chocolate, the cups containing the hot chocolate are in fact two cups, one inside the other, making a total of four separate cups. But once Ben reveals that he is in fact Glory, Dawn's two cups have suddenly changed to just one cup.

Triangle - S5-E11

Visible crew/equipment: In the final scene in the Magic Box where Buffy cries, in several shots of Buffy you can see, in the right of the shot, the sleeve of a white shirt, which none of the characters are wearing.

Into The Woods - S5-E10

Continuity mistake: When Buffy is hitting the punching bag near the end of the episode and Riley comes in she has bandages wrapped around both her hands but in the close up shot there is only a bandage on her left hand.

Out Of My Mind - S5-E4

Other mistake: Towards the end of the episode when Spike tells Buffy to stake him and removes his shirt, you can see that he has a tan on his upper back/neck to his hairline from wearing a t-shirt.

Fool For Love - S5-E7

Visible crew/equipment: When Spike picks up the money after Buffy has just said "you're beneath me", you can see the microphone "sender" under his leather jacket. (00:36:10)

Spiral - S5-E20

No Place Like Home - S5-E5

Audio problem: When Joyce comes downstairs and comments on the breakfast Buffy made, Dawn says 'Oh, Buffy helped,' but her mouth doesn't match what she's saying.

Real Me - S5-E2

Continuity mistake: When Buffy is fighting Mort in Harmony's lair, she knocks him up against the wall in a flurry of blows. In the next shot, he is several steps away from the wall and facing a different direction. (00:38:05)

Phoenix

Shadow - S5-E8

Revealing mistake: When Glory creates the demon snake thing, we see a CGI image of the creature, but Glory and Buffy are nowhere to be seen. When we are shown where they are standing, their position should have been visible when the snake demon was created. (00:27:05)

Crush - S5-E14

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the episode when Dawn goes to Spike's crypt we see Spike ascending from below. At first he does not have a cigarette tucked behind his left ear. A few frames later he does, then a few frames after that it is gone again.

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!

Homecoming - S3-E5

Question: In this episode Oz says "As Willow goes, so goes my nation". Is this a variation on a famous quote, and if so, which?

Jon Sandys Premium member

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.
