Tempus Fugit (1) - S4-E17

Other mistake: Sergeant Louis Frish had not enough time to walk down from the air traffic control tower to meet the agents since he was on the top of it when Mulder and Scully drive up to the tower - two persons can be seen on the top of the tower.

Tempus Fugit (1) - S4-E17

Factual error: In the background the full moon is visible and it's early morning (approx. 6:00 AM). However, at the start of the episode we see the full moon at night (approx. 19:50). Due to the fact that these are consecutive days, this situation is impossible from an astronomic point of view.

Terma (2) - S4-E9

Factual error: The last number on the truck's license plate is "77." On Russian plates the last two/three digits stand for a registration place. "77" is a number for Moscow, but the Gulag is located in Krasnoyarsk region, so the number should be different. Besides, the format of the plate (LDDDDL|DD) is incorrect - the correct one is LDDDLL|DD (L - letter, D - digit).

Terma (2) - S4-E9

Character mistake: Vassily Peskov speaks Russian with a strong accent. This is because the actor who plays Peskov (Jan Rubes) was from former Czechoslovakia.

Tunguska (1) - S4-E8

Factual error: This is probably the first time in history of civilized mankind that a person with a diplomatic visa is full-body-cavity searched, not to mention the illegal opening of the diplomatic bag.

Home - S4-E2

Other mistake: When the attackers leave the sheriff's house they walk and run as normal people, although in previous scenes they walk in a clumsy way. The same in the scene with chasing pigs.

Herrenvolk (2) - S4-E1

Continuity mistake: In the beginning, when the Bounty Hunter gets out of his car, Jeremiah Smith says nothing. However, in the same scene at 42:08 in the "Talitha Cumi" episode, Jeremiah says "He is here to kill me."

Revealing mistake: Henry's right eye is glass, yet its pupil dilates and constricts respective to the amount of light to which it's exposed.

The Sixth Extinction (2) - S7-E1

Factual error: When Skinner is at Kritschgau's apartment building, the time stamp onscreen says it's 5:05 AM, but when Kritschgau answers his door, he says it's 6:00 in the morning. Plus it is shown to be broad daylight outside. The sun is never up that early in Washington, D.C.

Serious B

Tithonus - S6-E10

Continuity mistake: Malcolm Wiggins stabs Alfred Fellig in the back three times, including once in the middle of his back to the right of his spine. However, when Scully is examining Fellig's back later in the episode, he has at least six stab wounds, and all of them are around his shoulder blades.

Serious B

Dreamland (1) - S6-E4

Visible crew/equipment: When Mulder is driving away from the gas station, crew members as well as some filming equipment can be seen reflected in the car's body. Mulder is in a pretty desolate area, so seeing people reflected in the car's body would in all likelihood be crew members and not random citizens.

Serious B

Dreamland (1) - S6-E4

Revealing mistake: When Mulder - whilst trapped in the body of Morris Fletcher - is doing various poses in front of the mirror, several of his movements and the corresponding movements from the realized reflection of Morris Fletcher are slightly out of sync with each other.

Serious B

Travelers - S5-E15

Continuity mistake: Young Arthur Dales has a cleft chin, but old Arthur Dales does not.

Serious B

Kitsunegari - S5-E8

Revealing mistake: When Scully pries open the mouth of the man who died from being forced to ingest paint, his eyes twitch.

Serious B

Detour - S5-E4

Revealing mistake: When Agent Kinsley finds Mulder and Scully in the hole, you can tell the forest background behind him is a blue screen because he has a white outline around his head, particularly noticeable by his hair, making him look very superimposed.

Shadows - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: Just as Mulder and Scully are entering the interrogation room to question Lauren for the second time, Mulder is holding a thin stack of paper, folded in half in his right hand. In one shot, these are folded horizontally. In the immediate next shot, they are now folded vertically.

Clyde Bruckman's Final Repose - S3-E4

Continuity mistake: Clyde Bruckman commits suicide by placing a plastic bag over his head until he asphyxiates. However, when Mulder and Scully first discover him you can see in the shot just before Scully holds his hands that there is no plastic bag around his head (may only be visible in widescreen format).

Serious B

Clyde Bruckman's Final Repose - S3-E4

Revealing mistake: When Mulder and Scully discover Clyde's dead body, if you look closely you can see Clyde's left eye twitching.

Serious B

Pusher - S3-E17

Continuity mistake: Agent Frank Burst screams "Stop!", but in the previous shot the police car was already stopped, although deputy Scott Kerber has just pushed the accelerator.
