* In ''Some Assembly Required'', Giles mocks American Football (as compared to rugby) and Jenny hits back at him for "dissing [her] country's national pastime". Given that "the national pastime" is almost exclusively applied to baseball, this seems at first like sloppy writing, until it is revealed later in the season that [[spoiler: "Jenny" is actually Janna Kalderash, a daughter of the Romania-based gypsy clan Kalderash, sent to Sunnydale to keep watch over Angel - her slight misuse of US sports nomenclature is actually an early slip of the mask.]]

* In [[Recap/BuffyTheVampireSlayerS6E17NormalAgain Normal Again]], Buffy is flashing between two possible realities: The Buffyverse, where she is the slayer fighting demons and vampires, and an until-now unseen alternate universe where she has been institutionalized due to delusions of fighting demons and vampires. The episode leaves it unclear which (if either) reality is the "real" Buffyverse. Joss Whedon himself has said that [[ShrugOfGod either interpretation is valid]]. The Fridge Brilliance? Of ''course'' either interpretation is valid. In a fictional show, either "reality" is equally real, which is to say, [[BreakingTheFourthWall entirely fictitious]].

** It's actually heavily implied throughout the show that Xander's parents are abusive.

*** All other things aside, firearms are considerably more regulated than things like stakes or blades would be. In any case, they'd be much more difficult to get a hold of and train enough with to be proficient. Then again, Buffy has gotten a hold of anti-tank rockets more than once.

*** Spike mentions that humans know as much as they do about fighting vampires thanks to Dracula being an attention whore and [[Literature/Dracula getting a book written about him]]. Imagine how much worse it was in the old days when "stake through the heart" or "holy water" werern't commonly-known vampire weaknesses.

Added DiffLines:

** Maybe transformations are much easier for the original caster to undo. Or the difficulty of undoing them depends on the strength of the caster. Amy deratting Buffy would then be trivial compared to breaking the transformation Amy cast on herself.

* Season 3, 'Anne': When Buffy liberates a number of slave laborers from a demon sweatshop, she takes some of their tools / weapons in the fracas. The ones she keeps? A [[HammerAndSickle rubber mallet and a sort of sickle-y thing]].

** Always figured Buffys' replacement got called somewhere in the back end of China or DPRK or Myanmar or somewhere not speaking to the rest of the world. However, it seems the accepted logic is that the next slayer would be called after Faith bought it, as she was the last to recieve the slayer baton before someone phreaked the Call-box to make muliple calls
