The X-Files

Ghost in the Machine - S1-E7

Other mistake: It's incomprehensible why such an intelligent COS has to print out the stolen data on Scully’s monitor, risking being exposed.

Shadows - S1-E6

Shadows - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: During the car crash, when the shot is taken from the outside of the car, Mulder keeps his head turned left, while in the shot from the car interior his head is turned right towards Scully.

Squeeze - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: When filmed from the back, Tom is stopping Mulder from entering the crime scene by laying his hand on Mulder’s chest, while in the front shot his left hand remains free.

Genderbender - S1-E14

Revealing mistake: When Mulder is examining the residue on the mouth of the deceased man in the beginning, the dead body's right eye twitches.

Serious B

Deep Throat - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: When complaining about the lack of connection in the first take Scully holds the handset directed downwards, but in the next shot she holds it upwards.

Deep Throat - S1-E2

Revealing mistake: During the hard braking due to avoiding the collision with the unknown agency cars, notice that there are stunt people sitting in the car instead of Mulder and Scully.

Deep Throat - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: Face-on Scully rests her elbow on the car side window frame with her wrist waving freely, while in the back shot she grabs the handle over the window (this error repeats at least three times in a row every time the shot changes).

Deep Throat - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: When Mulder gives Scully the map obtained from the bartender, she holds it in her hand in different ways in each consecutive shot.

Pilot - S1-E1

Character mistake: Scully says that it was Teresa Nemman who was summoned into the woods tonight, while in fact it was Peggy Odell.

Pilot - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: Filmed from the front, Scully nods down but in the next shot when filmed from the back she still keeps her head straight and only after a while she nods it down.

Pilot - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: The place Mulder and Scully find the “X” sign is different from the place Mulder originally painted it (e.g. leafy bush, no fence etc.).

Pilot - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When Mulder, Scully, and Dr Glass stop, in the first shot Mulder’s hands hang down and the doctor’s are in his pockets, while in the next shot Mulder’s hands are rested on his waist and the doctor’s hang loosely.

Pilot - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: In the shot taken from the front of the car Scully touches her hair with her right hand, while in the next shot her right hand rests on the car’s door.

Tooms - S1-E21

Other mistake: Being chased by Tooms underneath the escalator, Mulder climbs out of the manhole in front of the escalator, and hits the switch to activate the escalator. Tooms is then being dragged away from the manhole, but the direction of movement of the escalator below the floor would actually have dragged him towards the manhole where Mulder and Scully are.

Existence (2) - S8-E21

Continuity mistake: Just before Skinner shoots Alex Krycek in the head, Alex is lying weakly on the ground, having already been shot twice. However, as Skinner makes the kill shot, Alex is suddenly standing and falls to the ground upon impact of the bullet, with no time (or strength) for him to have risen. Also, the last shot of the dead Alex shows his face and his nostrils flare from breathing.

Chimera - S7-E16

Plot hole: The subject of the stakeout - the religious man dressed as a female prostitute to 'put the other prostitutes at ease' before trying to 'save' them - is shown when Scully is on the phone telling Mulder about it; the man has a very masculine face, a hairy stomach and is in no way convincing. It's extremely unlikely that such an obvious cross-dressed male would fool such a large amount of people.

Three Words - S8-E16

Continuity mistake: When Mulder sits at the computer terminal in the census records room, we see two empty boxes on the screen, one for an ID and one for a password. The shot cuts to Mulder, then back to the screen and shows him typing the password, while the ID has already been typed in; it is very long and there wasn't time in between shots or nearly enough clicks of keys for Mulder to have entered that ID.

Hungry - S7-E3

Continuity mistake: After Rob returns to his apartment after throwing out the trash bag with the bloody shirt inside, his mouth starts bleeding and he goes to the bathroom. He removes his false teeth and a few of his real teeth start falling out; he has a small smear of blood on his bottom lip when the camera is looking at him but his mouth is clean when the shot changes to his reflection in the mirror, with no time in between for him to wipe it.
