Corrected entry: When Lt. Col. Stans tries to kill himself by submerging himself in boiling water using the hydrotherapy tub, he sets the gauge to 200 (where it stays). The water boils as planned, but water doesn't boil that low. This takes place in Maryland; assuming an elevation of 3,360 feet, water shouldn't boil until 206°. (00:01:25)
Corrected entry: Eddie's ability to shape-shift is attributed to every muscle in his body being striated. While that's a reasonable explanation as to how he can change his face, it doesn't explain how he is able to change his hair. He has short hair and is balding, but when he mimics Mulder, he is able to match Mulder's longer and thicker full head of hair.Phaneron
Corrected entry: The CSM wants to publish his book. It is quite odd that he has to submit it to some publishing houses and suffers from being ridiculed. Using his practically infinite power he could publish or just order to publish the story whenever he pleases. (00:23:10)Chop Luftmysza
Corrected entry: At the crash site of Flight 549, Scully says "The plane came in nearly vertical at 300 miles per hour." yet the fly-over view of the debris field shows it spread out over hundreds of feet. Unfortunately, on 9/11 we learned when large commercial aircraft crash straight into the ground, they leave massive, smoking holes. First responders at Flight 93 were not even aware they were looking at a crash site.stevewaclo
Corrected entry: When Mulder, Scully and the other police officers are digging Ray Soames's grave, one strap of the coffin breaks and the coffin falls and starts to roll. When it hits a tombstone and opens, you can see there's a normal size body in the coffin. When they look into the coffin, there's this small alien body. (00:13:35)sam68
Corrected entry: After Mulder storms from the cinema at the end, Scully finds him sitting in the messy, deserted graveyard movie set. However, since the movie was premiering, which happens months after filming is completed, it makes no sense that the set would appear as if it was finished with that same day or that week.Purple_Girl
Corrected entry: In this episode, Mulder and Scully are watching a film about them that was shot sixteen months ago. But that would have been sometime in late 1998, when Mulder and Scully were not on the X-Files. But yet they're in Skinner's office at the beginning. If they had shot the film in consistency with the current timeline, (2000) then the film would have been shown in late 2001. But in that time, Mulder was missing and Scully had a newborn. if anything, she would have seen the movie with Doggett. Somebody didn't plan ahead... (00:04:05)
Corrected entry: Up to this point in the series, Samantha has been shown by the Smoking Man to Fox. In this episode it appears Fox has completely forgotten the fact that he already saw his sister alive on more than one occasion and appears to back on the belief that she's missing and has accepted the fact that she is dead.
Corrected entry: When we first see Scully, going into the office at the beginning of the episode, we see when she is on her way to the office and when she enters it she is wearing her badge, yet when the shot changes, it is no longer on her, then when she comes out she is wearing it again.

Corrected entry: Mulder takes out spray paint from the trunk. The problem is that the car isn't his but it was rented. It’s not plausible that all the cars in the rent-a-car company were equipped with spray paint. It is also doubtful that Mulder anticipated the paint use and bought it on purpose.

Corrected entry: At the end of the season 1 finale, The Erlenmeyer Flask, CSM is seen placing the alien embryo (pickled in a jar) in a box somewhere deep in the Pentagon's storage facility - yet in season 6's One Son, the embryo is back in the flask, in the freezing solution where Scully found it in the first place.

Visible crew/equipment: I don't know if this is visible in all formats, but on the newest UK release on DVD, watching in widescreen, it's amazingly obvious. When Mulder recovers from the vampire attack, he gets up from the floor and breaks up a chair to make a stake. There is a shot of his feet as he smashes the legs off and bends to pick up a piece. In the bottom left hand corner of the screen, you can see a crew member's hand carefully and quickly placing a piece of wood on top of the pile for Mulder to pick up.
