Doublemeat Palace - S6-E12

Trivia: In the season 6 episode "Doublemeat Palace", Buffy has to get a job working at a local fast food joint. The writers went out of their way to make it seem like the most miserable, degrading job ever. After this episode aired, several fast food franchises in real life like Burger King pulled their ads from Buffy in protest.

Tabula Rasa - S6-E8

Trivia: Tabula Rasa is a philosophical term. It's a school of thought founded primarily by John Locke and it holds that human beings are born as "blank slates" - that is, they have no knowledge or experience. This is contrasted with a belief system that all humans have certain ideas at birth; "God exists" is one commonly put forward.

Seeing Red - S6-E19

Trivia: This is the only episode where actress Amber Benson is acknowledged in the opening credits. This was done with the intent that the death of her character, Tara, at the end of this episode would be more of a surprise for the audience.

Seeing Red - S6-E19

Trivia: Many gay and lesbian rights groups were angered by the decision to kill Tara. Joss Whedon has argued that the decision was made not because Tara was gay, but because she was involved with Willow; had Willow remained with Oz, he would have been killed instead. Killing Tara was a way for the writers to advance Willow's storyline and transform her into Dark Willow for the season finale.

Once More, With Feeling - S6-E7

Trivia: When the woman is singing about her parking ticket, if you turn up the volume you can hear her last line of song 'and im not wearing any underwear' very faint, but its there

Tabula Rasa - S6-E8

Trivia: The episode, Tabula Rasa, is very aptly named. Tabula Rasa (Latin) means 'blank slate' (which refers to being born 'blank' and that intellect and behavior only comes from experience and perception) and is appropriate since the characters lost all their memories due to Willow's spell.

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)

The Yoko Factor (1) - S4-E20

Question: At the last moment before leaving for good, Angel pauses to tell Buffy "I don't like him" [Riley], to which she replies with a large smile "Thank you." Why does she take this comment surprisingly well? From an ex boyfriend to her new boyfriend? It's not like it sounds like a friendly warning of any sort, nor a joke given the tense situation between the two guys in the episode. And the smile on Buffy's face does not make her response look ironic either, more like loving/caring. Is that a cross over reference to another dialogue in the Angel series?

AnthonyA

Chosen answer: Angel is saying that he is still jealous and Buffy recognizes that this is his way of saying he wishes that they could be together. That is why they both smile.
