The Gift - S5-E22

Continuity mistake: In the last episode of Season 5 we see Spike thrown off the tower by Doc. Spike somehow manages to change from black trousers and boots into blue jeans and white shoes mid-air. He's back in black by the time he hits the ground.

Intervention - S5-E18

Revealing mistake: When Spike is playing with the Buffybot in his crypt and has her throw him onto his bed to stake him, the shot of him landing on the bed and the Buffybot climbing on top him is portrayed by stunt doubles. The shot is then interwoven with another shot of the actual actors. But it's very obvious due to the poor editing.

The Body - S5-E16

Continuity mistake: The drawing that Dawn drew in her art class after she learns of Joyce's death is not the same one she had earlier. The original drawing had large black areas and the new one shows those areas much lighter.

Tallicame

Intervention - S5-E18

Continuity mistake: Huge continuity gaffe. When Anya and Xander see Spike and the robot in the graveyard it is nightime. Xander goes back to speak to Spike almost immediately and sees Glory's followers kidnapping him. He wakes goes back to Buffy's house and from there they, again almost immediately, go looking for Glory's house - and it is the broadest of broad daylight. You could see it was still night before they left through the windows of the house. It also begs the question of how they got Spike from Glory's house back to his crypt in the sunlight since they had no blanket.

The Weight Of The World - S5-E21

Continuity mistake: When Glory is griping about human emotion, her arms change between wide shots and closeups.

Checkpoint - S5-E12

Continuity mistake: In the series 5 episode 'checkpoint' when Buffy has just accidently axed the dummy, watch her blindfold. It goes from being pushed up above her forehead on her hair, to being right down by her eyes. This changes between every shot.

xx:xx:xx

Plot hole: When Buffy talks to Xander at the end and he tells her to stay with Riley, she mentions that he is going at midnight. But earlier in the episode, Riley doesn't tell Buffy he is going at midnight, he says "Transport's leaving tonight" first, and at the end of the conversation he says "Unless you give me a reason to stay, I'm leaving tonight". Nowhere in this episode does he tell Buffy that he's leaving at midnight.

Spiral - S5-E20

Revealing mistake: Watch the shot of Glory as she is hit by the truck at the beginning of the episode (easier to see in slow-mo/frame-by-frame). She isn't hit by the truck at all. It goes right past her. A simple optical illusion used in filmmaking for decades.

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.
