Buffy The Vampire Slayer

Anne - S3-E1

Trivia: In the Buffy episode 'Anne' we are re-introduced to a character played by Julia Lee. Called Lily in this episode, she was previously called Chanterell in the season 2 ep 'Lie To Me'. At the end of the episode, Lily asks Buffy if she can be 'Anne', Buffy's L.A. persona, to which Buffy replies yes. It is interesting to note that Julia Lee returns later in several season 2 'Angel' episodes as Anne, though by now she has grown up significantly and is now running a hostel for runaway youth, something she once was...

Doppelgangland - S3-E16

Trivia: At the end of the episode, after vampire Willow has been returned to her reality, Willow talks about her evil twin. She says that she thinks her double was a little gay or something to that effect. Angel then begins to mention that the vampire personality of a person is a kind of mirror of what the person is or can be, but stops short of finishing the sentence. This is a hint to Willow's coming out of the closet about being a lesbian later on in the series.

Graduation Day (2) - S3-E22

Trivia: Joss Whedon is known for giving hints for future events. In Graduation Day Part 2 while Buffy is in a coma dream she speaks to Faith. Faith says "Oh yeah. - Miles to go - Little Ms. Muffet counting down from 7-3-0." 730 means 730 days (2 years). If you recall the poem that states miles to go before I sleep. In 730 days Buffy will die in the finale of season 5.

Lover's Walk - S3-E8

Trivia: The way Spike enters Sunndydale (driving into the sign) is a reference to the first time we met Spike in the season 2 episode "School Hard." Both times he drives into the sign, however in School Hard he steps out but in Lovers Walk he falls out, drunk. The music is even the same.

Anne - S3-E1

Trivia: I take it Joss Whedon hadn't heard of the chain of sex shops (and the company responsible for lingerie parties) called Ann Summers in the UK when he gave Buffy her middle name (Anne)?

Earshot - S3-E18

Trivia: The Columbine school massacre happened about a week before the episode was originally supposed to air. Since the episode dealt with a potential school shooting, the producers felt it was respectful and necessary to postpone the episode's airdate. Coincidentally, a similar event later happened to David Boreanaz when the Bones episode "Player Under Pressure" was postponed following the Virginia Tech massacre.

Anne - S3-E1

Trivia: Thought it interesting to note, in the season 3 opener 'Anne', the actor who plays Ken, Carlos Jacott, appears again in the 'Angel' season 1 episode, 'The Bachelor Party' as Richard, as a completely different demon. Re-incarnation or what?

Band Candy - S3-E6

Trivia: When their personalities are magically changed to their teenage selves, Giles and Joyce listen to the Cream song "Tales of Brave Ulysses" in one scene. Giles later listened to the song again in "Forever" after Joyce's funeral.

Gingerbread - S3-E11

Trivia: One of the names on the newspaper articles about the two dead children is "C. Meyer", as in Carey Meyer - one of the series' Production Designers.

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)

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.

More quotes from Buffy The Vampire Slayer

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.
