Buffy The Vampire Slayer

Grave (2) - S6-E22

Revealing mistake: As Willow is raising the satanic temple from the earth, we can see the support cables holding the temple upright from behind. This is plainly visible in the bottom right hand corner, complete with bright orange clasps on the temple itself.

Once More, With Feeling - S6-E7

All The Way - S6-E6

Normal Again - S6-E17

Continuity mistake: After Buffy decides not to take the antidote to the demon's venom, we cut to a scene at the mental institution. She says she wants to go home with her mum and dad. As she says this her dad puts his hand on Joyce's left arm. In the following shot, Joyce suddenly has her right hand on top of his when it wasn't in the previous shot.

Life Serial - S6-E5

Continuity mistake: When Buffy and Spike are in his crypt drinking whiskey, after Buffy says to him, "You have had so too much to drink at this point, I am cuttin' you off", she drinks a shot twice between shots.

Wrecked - S6-E10

Revealing mistake: Spike is supposedly naked in the building when he and Buffy awaken, but several times during the scene when he's asking her to stay, you can see the skin-tight, skin-coloured underpants he's wearing.

Seeing Red - S6-E19

Continuity mistake: Shortly after Spike tries to rape Buffy, he returns to his crypt and drinks a glass of vodka. Clem then arrives to watch television with him. During Spike and Clem's conversation, the position of the bottle of vodka constantly changes between shots.

Continuity mistake: When Willow kills the robot version of Warren, it lands on its back. But for the rest of the scene it is lying on its front.

Older And Far Away - S6-E14

Visible crew/equipment: When the Scoobies are attempting to leave Buffy's house by using magic, we see a close up shot of the house's front door knob. None of the Scoobies are reflected in the door knob even though they're standing right in front of it. There is also a fairly large black object reflected in it. A film crew perhaps?

Life Serial - S6-E5

Revealing mistake: In Jonathan, Warren and Andrew's van, whenever they're watching something on the monitors fed from their security cameras, you can see that the footage is actually pre-recorded due to the fact that the footage is being played through QuickTime media player.

After Life - S6-E3

Visible crew/equipment: When Dawn is possessed by the demon and breathes fire in the magic shop, in the bottom right corner of the screen in one of the shots, a metal tube can be seen blowing fire onto the set when it should be coming from Dawn's mouth. A hand can also be seen holding a blow torch, igniting the tube and then quickly pulling out of shot.

Normal Again - S6-E17

Factual error: After Buffy drags Xander down to the basement she locks the door and goes upstairs to find Dawn. When she locks the basement door, the handle is on the left side of the door and she turns the key to the right. In reality, a door with the handle on the left needs the key to be turned to the left to lock it. So Buffy did in fact unlock the door, not lock it.

Older And Far Away - S6-E14

Other mistake: As Spike follows Buffy into the hallway by her front door we see Spike's reflection in the mirror. Vampires do not have reflections, so Spike should not have been visible.

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.

Gone - S6-E11

Revealing mistake: When Buffy is invisible and in the social office in "Gone", she is searching for the summer files, and you can see a thumb picking them up. (00:20:40)

Villains - S6-E20

Revealing mistake: When Dawn gets back from school she goes up to Willow and Taras room and finds Tara lying dead on the floor. When Buffy comes in and finds her and comforts her, you can see Tara's chest moving as she takes a breath.

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.

5

Seeing Red - S6-E19

Continuity mistake: When Tara got shot, the blood on Willows shirt was spread out, but in the next shot, there were big clumps of blood.

5

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.

Bargaining (1) - S6-E1

[After saving Giles from a vampire.]
Spike: Awww, poor Watcher. Did your life flash before your eyes? Cup of tea, cup of tea, almost-got-shagged, cup of tea?

Homecoming - S3-E5

Question: In this episode Oz says "As Willow goes, so goes my nation". Is this a variation on a famous quote, and if so, which?

Jon Sandys Premium member

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.
