Quotes

Mayor Richard Wilkins: Well, what a day this is. A special day. Today is our centennial - the 100th anniversary of the founding of Sunnydale and I know what that means to all you kids... not a darn thing. Because today, something much more important happens - today you ...


Goofs

Throughout the series, in episodes with 'good' Angel, Angel does not have a reflection in windows and mirrors. This is explained as it being due to the fact that he is a vampire. Vampires do not cast a reflection as they do not have souls; however, as Angel has a soul he should therefore cast a reflection.


Crazy Credits

During seasons 6 and 7, the ones that took place on the UPN network, the final shot of the opening credits shows Sarah Michelle Gellar, as in all the previous seasons. The difference is that rather than those images being that of Buffy, they were of facsimiles of the Buffy character. For the majority of Season 6 the final image of the opening credits was of the Buffy Bot shortly before Glory ripped its head off and Season 7's image was of the First Evil, pretending to be Buffy while manipulating Spike. For some fans this plays to the idea that Buffy was somehow not the same after having been resurrected at the beginning of Season 6 through the end of the series run.


Alternate Versions

The DVD versions of the 2nd part of most two-part episodes omit the opening recap of the previous episodes. The US DVDs omit the recaps on all episodes.
