Buffy The Vampire Slayer

The Wish - S3-E9

Continuity mistake: Near the start of 'The Wish', the scene where Cordelia is talking to the Cordettes and meets Anya. During the close-ups of Harmony, Anya is standing to camera right of the brunette Cordette behind her. A few seconds later when the shot is further away Anya is standing camera left of the Cordette. (00:05:40)


Grave (2) - S6-E22

Continuity mistake: During the opening of the season 6 episode "Grave," Willow's nose starts bleeding and she gets blood on her upper lip. Over the next several shots the blood consistently keeps appearing and disappearing.

As You Were - S6-E15

Continuity mistake: When Buffy receives her letter from UC Sunnydale it says her address is 1630 Crestview, this doesn't sync up continuity-wise with the episode The Body as she tells the 911 operator that her address is 1630 Revello. She didn't move so it's a definite mistake.

School Hard - S2-E3

Continuity mistake: While studying at the Bronze, Buffy and Willow leave their books on the table to go and dance. Spike calls them outside to fight a vampire, and when Xander runs back inside to grab a stake the books have all been put back into Buffy's bag. (00:14:00 - 00:15:45)

Teacher's Pet - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: When Buffy finds Dr. Gregory's glasses on the lab floor she places them on the table, from the long shot she places them at the left end of the table near a plastic tub with a white lid, with the glasses open. Then it cuts to a close up where they are in front of a book on the right side of the table and are closed. Then cut back to the long shot and they are in the original place. (00:10:25)

Revelations - S3-E7

Continuity mistake: When the female watcher is being destroyed after Buffy cuts off her arm. Her sleeve is empty, which is not possible, as Buffy could not have removed the arm but not the sleeve. Also the arm on the floor is removed at the elbow, but the watcher has lost the entire arm in a previous shot.

Phases - S2-E15

Continuity mistake: When Willow is escaping from Oz the werewolf she runs into the library, where Giles is. In the first shot, he isn't wearing his glasses, then in the next shot he is, then he isn't, then again in the next shot he is. (00:37:05)

Seeing Red - S6-E19

Continuity mistake: When Buffy is fighting Warren at the end, there are several shots when it's clear that it's a stuntman playing Warren. The stuntman is taller and slimmer than Adam Busch, and the shape of his face is different, as is his hair in the front.

The Wish - S3-E9

Continuity mistake: When Buffy is walking forwards through Angel's dust in 'The Wish' there's a vampire running towards her, only a few steps behind. Then there's a shot of her walking forwards taken from another angle, then when we can see behind her again the same vampire hasn't moved forwards at all, he's still running from 3 steps behind her. (00:41:25)


The Harsh Light Of Day - S4-E3

Continuity mistake: When Spike finally gets into the area where the gem is and Harmony follows him up there, he puts on that necklace thinking it's the gem. When he realizes Harmony has the gem it shows him taking off the necklace. It cuts to another shot and then shows him again with the necklace, but minus the charm.

Becoming (1) - S2-E21

Continuity mistake: Drusilla kills Kendra by cutting open her jugular artery and leaving her to bleed to death. When Buffy enters a while later, there is not a drop of blood anywhere. (00:41:40 - 00:42:45)

School Hard - S2-E3

Vampire: And when I kill her, it will be the greatest event since the crucifixion. And I should know, I was there.
Spike: You were there?! If every vampire who said he was actually at the crucifixion really was there, it would've been like Woodstock!

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.
