Trivia: During Buffy's dream at the start of the episode Surprise, we see Willow sitting in the Bronze with a small monkey. Willow says, in French, "L'hippo a piqué ses pantalons" which translates as "The hippo has stolen his trousers." At the end of the episode What's My Line Part 2, when talking about Animal Crackers, Oz and Willow talk about the monkey being the only one to wear trousers, the hippo questioning why he hasn't got any, and the monkey being French.
Trivia: Before production began, an idea popped up that Buffy would be able to identify a vampire solely by their outdated clothes. While this idea was eventually abandoned, it was toyed with in "Welcome to the Hellmouth" when Buffy sees Willow talking to a vampire in 70s-style dress with his sleeves rolled up and his collar upturned.Cubs Fan
Trivia: In the episode where we learn about Anya's past, there is a flashback to the "Once More With Feeling" episode. Just before Anya closes the door, if you listen very carefully you can hear a prequel to the Mustard Song. Once again it is sung by David Fury and I believe Marti Noxon sings the female part as a prequel to her parking ticket song, and sounds a bit like "Oh no. Mustard on my shirt," "Mustard, I'll never get it out." "My favorite red shirt." "Dryclean it.""How could you serve..." "Mustard."
Trivia: In the episode 'The Replacement' Buffy asks what they're going to do with the 2 Xanders who then say 'Kill us both Spock'. This is a reference to an episode of Star Trek where Kirk ended up with an evil twin and Spock didn't know which one to kill, the real Kirk told Spock to kill them both so Spock killed the other one.Kara
Trivia: Nicholas Brendon, who plays Xander, in real life has a stuttering problem and can overcome it by knowing what he's going to say: e.g. scripted, rehearsed material. He said in an interview that he has slowly over the years gotten over the stuttering, but has to work hard at his craft at learning exact lines and rehearsing them over and over again. He doesn't do a lot of live interviews because of this.Randy DeShong
Trivia: Joss Whedon also wrote the 1992 "Buffy" film. Because of the dramatic differences between his screenplay and the finished film, he doesn't consider it canon as established by the TV series. In fact, the series isn't based on the completed movie at all: it's based instead on the screenplay Whedon initially wrote.Cubs Fan
Trivia: Semi obvious, but I thought it was funny. Several episodes back, Jenny bought an orb of Thessala, and the shopkeeper adds as an aside that he sold a few as paperweights last year. In this episode they need an orb to complete the curse, and Giles says he has one, then adds in an embarrassed way "I've been using it as a paperweight".Jon Sandys
Trivia: At the end of the episode, after vampire Willow has been returned to her reality, Willow talks about her evil twin. She says that she thinks her double was a little gay or something to that effect. Angel then begins to mention that the vampire personality of a person is a kind of mirror of what the person is or can be, but stops short of finishing the sentence. This is a hint to Willow's coming out of the closet about being a lesbian later on in the series.
