Lover's Walk - S3-E8

Continuity mistake: In the episode Lover's Walk, when Spike is threatening Willow at the factory, in the long shots Willow's hair is up over her face, and in the close-ups it isn't. The pointed bit of the bottle is at the top or bottom in different shots too. (00:19:20)

Lover's Walk - S3-E8

Continuity mistake: In the scene when Spike was in Buffy's kitchen with Joyce, Buffy keeps him down on the table and grips Spike by the throat. She uses her left hand (in the close shot it is also the left hand) but in the next scene when Angel is also in the kitchen and Spike hits Buffy's hand, she uses her right hand (Spike hits her right hand).

Lover's Walk - S3-E8

Other mistake: In the final scene, where Spike drives down the road while singing 'My Way' he turns the steering wheel significantly, but in the external shots the car is travelling down a straight road, with no bends. He is turning it sharply to the right as the camera cuts to outside, but the car continues straight ahead.

Lover's Walk - S3-E8

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Xander and Willow are stuck in the factory Xander wakes up you'll notice that the blood on his side burn closest to his ear constantly changes lengths from shot to shot. It goes from under the chin to slightly below where the blood on the other side of his side burn is. (00:30:30)

Lover's Walk - S3-E8

Revealing mistake: Early on, Spike falls down drunk. He wakes up because his hand is on fire from the sunlight. When he runs away, a little bit of fire stays on the stones where his hand was when it started.

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.
