  • Drusilla has a powerful thrall and is a Seer (can't remember if you've mentioned this earlier, @DeadlyDuo)
  • Xander lost his virginity to Faith
  • Robin was raised by his mother's Watcher, Bernard Crowley
  • Giles wanted to be a fighter pilot as a child (or possibly a grocer :))
  • Spike does not speak Chinese
  • Xander stole Willow's Barbie
  • Xander and Willow used to have sleepovers (or at least share a bed) when they were in footie pajamas
  • The Bronze is an all-ages club, with an entry fee and stamps for underage customers (or are the stamps for the over 21 crowd?)
  • Faith brutally injured Kakistos enough to blind him on one eye
  • Joyce met Hank during a school dance, she was dateless, he wasn't (I think it was college, but could've been high school)
  • When she's drunk, Anya tends to see Allen Funt

I´m not sure if anyone already mentioned it, but...

Fred loves tacos! (I find that absolutely adorable :))

13349

Angel: "Where would Fred go?"
Gunn: "We could hit all the local taco stands. (Everyone looks at him) Joke! - Kind of."
Angel: "Come on, guys, think! What do we know about Fred?"
Gunn: "Well, I knew about the tacos."
:p 🤣 😂

The staircase to Giles' bedroom goes over the front door.

Willow broke a yellow crayon on the first day of kindergarten.

Spike took on his name very soon after he was sired, possibly within days or weeks, as the Yorkshire flashback took place in 1880 and Angelus says they barely got out of London.

Add to that: Giles does not have a spare bedroom! No matter how many fanfic authors write that he does, doesn't change the facts! :D
His bathroom also seems to be behind the kitchen.

I think it's adjacent to the kitchen ... but I could be mistaken

Spike's car doesn't have seatbelts because it is a black DeSoto Fireflite 1959 car. Seatbelts didn't become standard until 1968. Therefore Spike's car would not be legal today and very possibly wasn't legal back in the 90s either.

I guess it must depend on the country you're from because a car like that would absolutely be legal to drive in Denmark, so long as you didn't have kids under a certain age in it without adding seatbelts to it. In fact, the strange thing about classic cars with no seatbelts is that they are entirely legal and you can't be pulled over for not wearing one. Must be different laws in the UK :)

Same in Oz. It'd be a bigger crime to install seatbelts in such classics!

Must be because you would absolutely get fined for not wearing a seatbelt here. I guess the mantra in Denmark must be "If you want to risk killing yourself in a car crash, feel free, but don't risk killing the kids!"

actually no, this is the law:
The vast majority of cars have seat belts, but in some cases, a vehicle won't have them fitted. This is generally only the case with classic cars. The laws regarding cars without seat belts states that no children under 3 are allowed to travel in the vehicle, and that children over 3 must sit in the back seats.
(looks like we can kill ourselves too, yay)
