Buffy The Vampire Slayer

Angel - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: When Buffy leaves the Bronze (right before the Three attack her) to go home, she passes a strange-looking green-lit window. After the attack, she and Angel run past this window again, even though they're heading in the same direction Buffy was going anyway.

Sleeper - S7-E8

Continuity mistake: When Anya is sneaking into Spikes room after she closes the door the shot goes to spike and the sheet is lying square across his stomach and the camera goes back to Anya she then walks over to the chest of drawers and we see spike in the shot and the sheet is now lying at an angle so we can see his hip.

Pangs - S4-E8

Continuity mistake: When Buffy and Willow are talking about the sham of Thanksgiving Day at the groundbreaking ceremony, on one angle (the one where Buffy's face is shown) there is a strong wind blowing, moving their hair about, but in the other (when you can see Willow's face) their hair aren't moving.

Gone - S6-E11

Continuity mistake: In 'Gone', when invisible Buffy is typing on the social worker's keyboard the letter 'B' is pressed several times. When she prints what she's been typing seconds later it's revealed to be "All work and no play make Doris a dull girl", a phrase which contains no 'B's. (00:21:10)

Becoming (1) - S2-E21

Continuity mistake: In 'Becoming, part 1' as Buffy kneels over Kendra's corpse you can see the door over her shoulder, it stays closed all the time. There is a cut to a shot of Buffy from behind showing a cop raising his gun, but he couldn't have come through the door without us seeing him in the last shot. (00:43:10)

Shadow - S5-E8

Continuity mistake: When Buffy comes in to talk to her mum about the CAT scan, we hear her shut the door behind her. We then cut to a shot of Buffy, and can see the door slightly ajar in the background. (00:10:30)

Who Are You? (2) - S4-E16

Continuity mistake: When Adam enters the cave and is talking to the vampires and then pulls the head off of one of them, watch as he falls, his head is still visible when he is falling out of frame. (00:15:25)

Help - S7-E4

Continuity mistake: When Cassie and Dawn were talking, just before Cassie got kidnapped, Cassie put her hand on Dawn's shoulder, but in the next shot, her hands were by her side.

Wild At Heart - S4-E6

Continuity mistake: When we see Veruca eating at the table, she reaches for a cup as we see Oz coming up behind her. The shot changes and we see her turning around and reaching for the same cup again, though she never had time to put it down.

School Hard - S2-E3

Continuity mistake: When Buffy's fighting Spike at the end of the episode, there are times when it's obvious that it's James Marsters' stunt double. Spike's hair is platinum blonde, slicked back, and all one length in the back, while the stunt double's hair is more brassy, spiked in the front, and layered in the back.

The Wish - S3-E9

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the episode when Buffy is fighting the demon, she stabs it and the demon lands half on top of her. When they fall to the ground, you can see a big stain on her pants where the demon touched her. But when she stands up, her pants are clean.

Chosen - S7-E22

Continuity mistake: When Anya leads Andrew away to their station in the school, she goes from having her right arm over his shoulders to having her left arm over her shoulders between shots. She is off camera for a second, but not long enough to move to the opposite side of him and change hands.

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.

Answer: She has superpowers, ergo fast movement. The reason she outruns him so easily in "Touched" is that she stops trying to actually fight him and just dodges instead.
