Buffy The Vampire Slayer

Wild At Heart - S4-E6

Continuity mistake: When Veruca comes to Oz's cage to spend the night there, she tosses her jacket onto the round stone thingie (knob?) at the end of the stairs, and it covers the whole thing. However, when Willow discovers them in the morning and Veruca goes to pick up her jacket, you can see that it has moved. Willow didn't touch it when she entered, and both Oz and Veruca were locked up so they couldn't get anywhere near it. (00:26:35 - 00:29:20)

When She Was Bad - S2-E1

Continuity mistake: In the season two episode, 'When She Was Bad', in the scene where Buffy smashes the masters skeleton with a sledge-hammer she smashes the rib cage to pieces. Suddenly the rib cage has again become completely intact and she smashes it to hell again. (00:40:35)

Flooded - S6-E4

Continuity mistake: When Anya and Xander were arguing outside Buffy's house, Xander had a lipstick mark on the bottom of his lips, but in the next shot, it was on the side of his lips and in the shot after that, the mark was above his lips.

Anne - S3-E1

Continuity mistake: When Buffy fights the guards and says, "Anyone who isn't having any fun here follow me," the top under her jacket is purple. In the next shot, when she turns to walk out, it is green, then back to purple when we see her again.

Beer Bad - S4-E5

Continuity mistake: When Xander is showing Willow and Buffy his fake ID and the view of the shot is from behind Xander, he is holding the card with his thumb and middle finger. Switch to the view from behind Willow and it's being held with his thumb and index finger. Then it switches to behind Xander again and it's back to thumb and middle finger.

Help - S7-E4

Continuity mistake: Towards the end, when Buffy stops the arrow, when she first grabs it her hand drops down to Cassie's mouth level, and her arm's bent at the elbow. When we cut to another angle it's now held at arm's length and at about eye level.

The Zeppo - S3-E13

Continuity mistake: In the basement scene, with Jack and Xander, the bomb counts down from 13 to 10 seconds. Then after Xander says his line, the bomb again shows 13 seconds.

Becoming (2) - S2-E22

Continuity mistake: In "Becoming Part 2" At the end when Spike chokes Drusilla unconscious, he picks her up, one of her hands is resting on her stomach and the other is hanging to her side. It cuts to a shot of Spike looking at Angel and Buffy fighting then to Spike leaving with his back facing the camera. You can see that the hand resting on Drusilla's stomach moved to Spike's shoulder.

The Weight Of The World - S5-E21

Continuity mistake: When Glory challenges Dawn to name one person who can cope with life on earth, there is a close up of Dawn answering "Buffy". In this shot, the black mark (where she has been annointed) that is there before and after, has completely disappeared. (00:24:05)

Once More, With Feeling - S6-E7

Continuity mistake: When Buffy is singing "Something to Sing About", she sings the verse beginning 'All the joy life sends, family and friends', and we see that Anya and Tara are stood in the background, about 3 metres apart from each other. However, for one shot, they appear less than 1 metre from each other. (00:42:05)

Graduation Day (1) - S3-E21

Continuity mistake: In Graduation Day Part 1, when Faith and Buffy are fighting, Faith throws Buffy into the wall near the TV, but the TV is intact. A few shots later, there is debris on the floor, glass and such, from the TV, and when it's shown again, the TV is unbroken. This happens a few times. In Graduation Day Part 2, when Faith and Buffy are talking in the apartment, the TV is broken again. (00:38:05)

Choices - S3-E19

Continuity mistake: After Buffy slams the Gavrok spider thing on the ground with her back, she gets pulled up by Angel. We see this shot from the back, and we see that the Gavrok is no longer on the floor or on her jacket. In the very next shot, we see Angel kick it across the floor. Where did it come from?

Into The Woods - S5-E10

Continuity mistake: When Buffy is hitting the punching bag near the end of the episode and Riley comes in she has bandages wrapped around both her hands but in the close up shot there is only a bandage on her left hand.

Goodbye Iowa - S4-E14

Continuity mistake: When Buffy is talking to Riley, she puts the scarf on her head, on his hand. He talks to her and says "Maybe I am the bad guy," and in the next frame her scarf is back on her head again, then off again in the next frame. (00:24:20)

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.
