The Sixth Extinction (2) - S7-E1

Factual error: When Mulder is visited by his mother, he definitely shows brain activity, because he is "talking" with her, however there are only flat lines on the monitor. In a similar situation in "The Sixth Extinction" episode, when Kritschgau and Skinner ask him questions and he anticipates them, the monitor shows intensive bursts.

Millennium - S7-E4

Continuity mistake: When Scully stops by the fence that leads to the necromancer's property, there is only one red car parked that seems to be Frank Black's car. It seems that Mulder's car and the necromancer's car vanished into thin air.

Milagro - S6-E18

Other mistake: When Padget supposedly tears out his heart with his hand and keeps it in his hand, one can see that the heart's blood vessels were not torn out but must have been precisely cut with some surgical tool.

Milagro - S6-E18

Other mistake: Padget hands over one page of his book to his imagined character who is invisible to anyone else except him. Therefore, the page should hover in the air for an external observer. However, Scully watches his apartment on a monitor and notices nothing strange.

Arcadia - S6-E15

Plot hole: Big Mike was attacked by the creature, because his bulb was broken just for a couple of seconds. It would mean that even if something like this happened to somebody else by accident, this person would also be killed by the creature. That would drastically increase the kill rate in the community.

Suggested correction: That was the whole point of the creature, to enforce the HOA rules so that no violations occurred, even by accident. Although prior to the attack, Gene Gogolak describes Big Mike as a weak link that had to be dealt with, so the bulb was just an excuse to attack him.

Irresistible - S2-E13

Visible crew/equipment: As Scully rolls down the stairs with the killer at the end of the episode, once they reach the bottom a hand pops out from the left side of the screen.

Humbug - S2-E20

Visible crew/equipment: When Mulder and Scully are talking to the owner of the trailer park and he is berating Mulder, you can see the edge of the lens in the upper left corner of one shot. This is because the lens used was of a wide angle almost fish-eye type and the edge of the lens itself can occasionally creep into the frame on most cameras.

Ghost in the Machine - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: When we watch Scully typing from behind, the text she types is ahead of the text we saw at a distance in the previous shot.

Duane Barry (1) - S2-E5

Revealing mistake: The answering machine at the end appears to not be plugged into any phone line. The shot shows the phone jacks on the right side of the machine are empty. In order for an answering machine to work at least one of those ports would need to be hooked to the phone.

Two Fathers (1) - S6-E11

Plot hole: It is virtually impossible that such a conspiracy-experienced, cautious, and wise person as the Second Elder would be so naive and careless to just let the "Dr. Openshaw" faceless alien to his house, knowing from the CSM that Dr. Openshaw had died that evening.

Pusher - S3-E17

Character mistake: Pusher says that he read in Scully's files that she had shot Mulder, although after Pusher's visit in the Computer Records Office Skinner says that Pusher checked only Mulder's files.
