Dod Kalm - S2-E19

Factual error: Mulder mentions the USS Eldridge as disappearing from Philadelphia (and later reappearing in Norfolk) "nine months after Roswell", i.e., May 1948. In fact, the supposed incident took place much earlier - in February 1943, according to almost all reliable sources.

Christmas Carol (1) - S5-E6

Continuity mistake: Scully's FBI badge number that she gives to the phone company is different to the one she gives in season 4's "Teliko".

Grotesque - S3-E14

Continuity mistake: When Scully and Mulder first visit John Mostow he says that he drew all the pictures of Gargoyles, which would have been a pretty good act considering he was in a strait jacket and would not have been allowed to have paper and drawing materials anyway.

Schizogeny - S5-E9

Continuity mistake: After her father is pulled out of the window, Lisa leans out and there is no glass left on the sill, she even places her hands on it. Later when Mulder and Scully look at it, there is all sorts of jagged edges on the sill.

Genderbender - S1-E14

Continuity mistake: After the part where the head Kindred woman tells Mulder and Scully "I asked you not to interfere", Mulder leads Scully away. From one camera angle, he is leading her away by the hand. In the same scene, but from a different camera angle, he has his arm around her. When we go back to the first camera angle, he is once again leading her away by the hand.

Miracle Man - S1-E18

Continuity mistake: In the establishing shot of the courthouse the subtitle reads "Kenwood County Courthouse" but you can read on the building that it is the "DeKalb County Courthouse".

E.B.E. - S1-E17

Continuity mistake: In the scene at the start, when the police car passes the truck, clearly it is daylight, but right after the truck shuts down it is completely dark.

Revelations - S3-E11

Factual error: After the agents meet with Kevin's father in the mental institute, Scully lists the medication that he is on: haloperidol, loxapine, and chlorpromazine make sense, but the fourth medication - LARGACTIL - is in error. Not only is it a brand-name of chlorpromazine, but it is not available in the USA, it is a CANADIAN drug.

Requiem - S7-E22

Continuity mistake: In this episode, both Mulder and Scully say that the last time they were in Oregon was 7 years ago. A previous episode this season dealt with the millennium, so we know this episode took place in 2000. So seven years ago would be 1993, the year the show first aired. But in the Pilot episode, the corner of the screen reads their location in Oregon and March 7, 1992. 8 years ago.

Eve - S1-E11

Continuity mistake: We see Cindy and Teena at the table talking with Eve 7, drinking out of paper cups. Later on, when Mulder picks up a cup from the table, it's made of glass.

Leonard Betts - S4-E12

Factual error: When Scully is performing the autopsy on Leonard Betts' severed head, she states "As remains are incomplete, all observations refer to a decapitated head." This phrasing is redundant. The proper terminology would be "disembodied head." As a medical doctor, Scully should know this.

Serious B

Unrequited - S4-E16

Deliberate mistake: When Mulder is about to go into the metal detector he puts his gun on the counter. He goes through the metal detector on his cell phone but his keys set it off, when he steps through again it doesn't go off. No cell phones can go through metal detectors without setting it off.

Dutton1987

Kill Switch - S5-E11

Continuity mistake: In the same season episode "Unusual Supects" Fox Mulder's file lists him as Fox William Mulder. The A.I. discovers a similar file but the name is just Fox Mulder.

Little Green Men - S2-E1

Continuity mistake: When Fox Mulder is having the flashback when Samantha was abducted, he looks at the doorknob, in the close-up he is still looking at the doorknob but it has changed colour.

Tempus Fugit (1) - S4-E17

Other mistake: When Mulder opens the body bag containing the "partial" remains of Max Pfennig (AKA Paul Gidney) a pulse can be seen beating in the right side of the corpse's neck.

Ghost in the Machine - S1-E7

Audio problem: When Jerry uses the elevator, the voice of the computer reads out the floors as "twenty-third floor, fourth floor, fifth floor" etc, missing out the "twenty-" prefix until the 29th floor. The DVD subtitles list these numbers with their prefix, so this was not intentional.

Eve - S1-E11

Continuity mistake: When Dr. Kendrick/Eve is talking to the two little girls and she's clearing up the mess on the table, the position of the straw changes between shots.

Chaz1003

Talitha Cumi (1) - S3-E24

Visible crew/equipment: While Fox is fighting the agent in underground garage you see a crew person on the right side of screen for split second.

Nisei (1) - S3-E9

Continuity mistake: When Senator Richard Matheson tells Mulder about the four Japanese Nationals had been murdered, he says that the murders had occurred several weeks ago. But when Mulder brings Scully up to speed a scene or two later, he tells her that someone must have been able to identify the four doctors who were performing the autopsy because they were murdered YESTERDAY.

Kitsunegari - S5-E8

Continuity mistake: How was Modell tried and convicted in 1996 if he only woke up six months ago? Six months before this episode would be at least mid 1997.
