Goofs: Giles translates "the darkness breathes" in Latin as "tenebrae respiratis". That means "you, the darkness, are breathing". The correct Latin translation is "tenebrae respirant". ("Darkness" is singular in English and "tenebrae" is plural in Latin).

  • When Amy arrives home after school on the day the test reveals her as a witch, she walks through a short gate in front of her porch and slams it closed. In the next shot, you can clearly see the gate behind Amy and it is standing wide open.
  • Cordelia gets out of the Driver's Ed car and shuts the door. In the next scene, the door is open, and when the truck hits it, it slams the door shut, although the door was, as far as we have seen, already shut.
  • While Buffy, Willow and Xander are in the lab making the witch revealing potion, Willow pours the finalized mixture into a test tube and fills the tube to the top. When Buffy takes the tube, it is barely a 1/4 full.
  • When Cordelia is driving, there is a crew member in the back of the car.
