Buffy The Vampire Slayer

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.

Intervention - S5-E18

Revealing mistake: When Buffy is walking alone into the desert, a man's legs are visible in the upper-right corner of the frame and remain visible for a second or two.

The Body - S5-E16

Revealing mistake: When the vampire attacks Dawn and Buffy in the morgue, in several shots you can tell that the vampire is wearing underwear. Corpses are meant to be stripped when they are brought to a morgue.

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.

Crush - S5-E14

Revealing mistake: When the porter is dragged back onto the train at the start you can see (more obviously if you watch in slow motion) that there's absolutely nothing grabbing him, not even someone's shadow.

Real Me - S5-E2

Revealing mistake: When Buffy, Giles and Dawn are in Giles' car, it's obvious that Giles isn't really driving it as he is barely concentrating on the road on several occasions.

Intervention - S5-E18

Revealing mistake: When Spike, Xander, Anya and the Buffybot are attacked by vampires in the cemetery, the grass for the cemetery moves underneath the vampires' feet as if it were a carpet. The cemetery was a sound stage and not an actual cemetery.

I Was Made To Love You - S5-E15

Revealing mistake: When Giles pushes Spike into the cabinet at the magic shop, you can see Spike's reflection in the glass of the cabinet's doors. But Spike is a vampire and therefore should have no reflection.

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.

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.
