Buffy The Vampire Slayer

Tabula Rasa - S6-E8

Continuity mistake: In the beginning of the show, Buffy has two necklaces on, one long and one short. However, when Buffy, as Joan, is telling everyone her plan to get away from the vampires, she only has the short necklace on. Then when she is outside, running from Spike, as Randy, both necklaces are back on.

Gone - S6-E11

Revealing mistake: When Buffy is at the desk of the social assistant you can see the white wire at the left of the keyboard. The white wire controls the fake keyboard: you can see the wire moving. (00:20:50)

Two To Go (1) - S6-E21

Continuity mistake: When Willow is outside the jail just before she starts pulling bricks out, there are two policemen walking past the open door, but a split-second later as the shot moves out to look up at the window, they disappear.

Wrecked - S6-E10

Visible crew/equipment: Just after Dawn says "I like the trailers", we fade to black/commercials, then up again. Keep a close eye on the left side of the screen - you can see what looks like someone's hand flash into frame for a second, despite Dawn being alone in the room - looks like the director's hand signalling action.

Once More, With Feeling - S6-E7

Continuity mistake: During the final song, everyone, including Spike, sings "When Does the End Appear?", however, one shot later, Spike is seen starting to sing the word "appear" again and then he stops.

Bargaining (2) - S6-E2

Continuity mistake: When Spike is looking out the window at the demons rampaging in the street outside Buffy's house, Dawn can be standing behind him with her hair trailing down below her breasts. In the next shot, when Spike pulls her away from the window, her hair is pulled back behind her shoulders despite her not having moved. (00:53:10)

Flooded - S6-E4

Continuity mistake: In 'Flooded', Jonathon reads a few things off the board listing the Trio's ultimate aims. One of the things he reads out is "prototype jet-packs that actually fly", but when the list is shown a few seconds later jet packs aren't mentioned on it. (00:27:10)

Normal Again - S6-E17

Continuity mistake: In the basement, immediately after Buffy pulls her hand out of the demon's chest, her fist is completely dry. Two shots later, it is covered in gooey demon fluid. (00:40:35)

Bargaining (1) - S6-E1

Continuity mistake: After the 'hell hogs' interrupt the ritual, Xander pulls Willow out of the way. He then tells Anya and Tara to "take off." which they appear to do, starting to run Into The Woods. But then in the next shot, they are back standing still in the clearing (on the left of the shot).

Seeing Red - S6-E19

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the episode, Buffy is running from the large saws and jumps out the door, she sits up and you can see the book is fully intact and in one piece. After the opening credits Tara picks up the same book and it falls apart from being cut in half.

Once More, With Feeling - S6-E7

Audio problem: During Buffy's first song she does a spinning kick to a vampire's face as she sings, "I've been making shows of trading blows, just hoping no one knows." But as she spins, her lips are not moving.

Bargaining (2) - S6-E2

Visible crew/equipment: When Buffy and Dawn are at the top of the metal tower, and Buffy is still very dazed from being called back, there is an overhead shot with a piece of the tower falling down; if you look left of the falling piece, you can see a guy wearing a hard hat walking about.

Smashed - S6-E9

Continuity mistake: When Dawn and Buffy were talking in Willow and Tara's room, Dawn's necklace went from being above her top, to underneath her top.

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.

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.
