Parting Gifts - S1-E10

Character mistake: When the bidding for Cordelia in the auction reaches $20,000, somebody bids for $30,000 after the auctioneer has said "going once, going twice" and they end up winning. The auctioneer should have in fact restarted saying "going once, going twice" after the $30,000 bid was made.

Blind Date - S1-E21

Character mistake: Angel comments that Vanessa was acquitted because of a hung jury. A hung jury means the jury couldn't come to a unanimous decision; the case would require a new trial, while an acquittal means the jury found her not guilty, and she couldn't be tried again for the crime.

Smile Time - S5-E14

Character mistake: While Gunn and Lorne are interrogating Framkin he sings a couple bars of a song "Courage and Pluck". However, though he has the ability to read people when they sing, and in fact in the very next episode knows that Fred is about to fall from just the words "you make me happy", Lorne doesn't read him.

Lord Mordo

Judgment - S2-E1

Continuity mistake: Right after Cordelia has her vision, Wesley goes to the whiteboard. In the "Case" column he writes "N.D.U.O." underneath what looks like "CARYNSS" crossed out. But once they find out that it is a Prio Motu demon and Angel writes it on the whiteboard, "N.D.U.O." disappears even though Angel did not rub it off.

Waiting In The Wings - S3-E13

Cordelia: You want I should distract him? Make with the nice-nice while you slip by?
Angel: Don't be stupid. I'm that guy and the most beautiful woman I've ever seen is making eyes at me? It's either a bachelor party or a scam.
Cordelia: What did you just call me?
Angel: I'm sorry. You're not stupid.
Cordelia: No, after that.
