The X-Files

Space - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: Mulder and Scully are driving after the women to the command center, it is raining hard. The woman has an accident and Mulder stops to check on her, it isn't raining anymore. They were right behind her. (00:15:50)

Ascension (2) - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: Krycek & Mulder leave FBI Headquarters, to go to Skyland Mountain, in a blue sedan - only in the next sceene - as Mulder is driving and almost falls asleep, the color of the sedan has changed to maroon. (00:12:40)

Musings of a Cigarette-Smoking Man - S4-E7

Other mistake: When the CSM is aiming at the door, it must be quite difficult for him because it seems that he forgot to take off the protective lid from the night vision rifle sight. (00:35:10)

Chop Luftmysza

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.

Conduit - S1-E4

Other mistake: In the scene where Mulder and Scully are first visiting Darlene Morris, there is a split-second shot of Mulder examining residue on his fingers that is edited in between Mulder and Scully ascending the steps to the porch and knocking on the door. It's as if the sequence was initially longer with Mulder discovering a suspicious substance before he and Scully knocked on the door that was not completely edited out. (00:07:20)

Dod Kalm - S2-E19

Factual error: Mulder refers to a Royal Navy vessel that sailed from Leeds. No large ship can sail from there - it is at least 50 miles from the coast.

Hollywood A.D. - S7-E19

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where Scully is performing the autopsy on Micah Hoffman, you can see a shadow of someone moving across the wall behind her. (00:23:35)

Mind's Eye - S5-E16

Other mistake: When Marty is being transferred and 'sees' herself because the killer is watching her, she should have seen herself viewed through a wire fence, as the killer was standing behind one.

Three of a Kind - S6-E20

Continuity mistake: When Frohike plays the slot machine, the first position on the reel shows a single bar. After Byers spots Suzanne, the camera goes back to Frohike and the first position now is not a single bar. There wouldn't have been enough time between the shots for Frohike to have another pull of the machine. (00:10:15)

Emily (2) - S5-E7

Continuity mistake: Mulder says that Scully was abducted and missing for four weeks. In "Duane Barry," the date stamp is given as August, then in "3," when Mulder returns to the X-Files office he turns the calendar all the way to November. Since Scully is returned the next episode after this, she must have been missing for at least 3 months, not 1. (00:06:20)

End Game (2) - S2-E17

Factual error: The flag in Skinner's office is hung upside-down. (00:28:00)

Biogenesis (1) - S6-E22

Factual error: In this episode, Mulder says, "In 1996, a rock from Mars was found in Antarctica." The rock ALH84001 was found in 1984, and the announcement that it may contain life came in 1996. (00:17:55)

731 (2) - S3-E10

Revealing mistake: When Mulder finds the Japanese doctor dead on the floor of the train bathroom, the man's eyes are open. Just before the shot cuts to the girl and boy at the door, he closes his eyes.

War of the Coprophages - S3-E12

Factual error: In the scene where Mulder, the police officer and the doctor are in the doctor's room, the time on the clock reads 8:40. The doctor announces that he going to the bathroom. The scene cuts to him in the bathroom and then back to the doctor's office with Mulder and the police officer. Another cop comes in and says, "Come to the bathroom, something's happened." The clock still reads 8:40.

Born Again - S1-E22

Continuity mistake: When Scully is doing the exam on the dead guy on table, he blinks and breathes. (00:12:05)

All Souls - S5-E17

Revealing mistake: During the autopsy, right after Scully has the vision of her daughter, the body of Paula Koklos can be seen to move (watch her hands and neck). (00:24:05)

Soft Light - S2-E23

Continuity mistake: After the meeting with Dr. Davey, we cut to Mulder sitting in the train station trying to figure out what Dr. Banton was doing in the video. We see an overhead shot of the station, which shows a column in the far distance. Watch carefully: the shot never loses sight of the column, and you can see random passersby walk towards the column, but NO Scully. As the camera moves downwards to focus on Mulder in the foreground, Scully suddenly appears from behind the column, as if she had been walking towards it all this while. Obviously, she had been standing behind the column until her cue to come out. (00:19:45)

Little Green Men - S2-E1

Continuity mistake: When Mulder is in the tower and Scully has just found him the sweat patches on his shirt change in between shots. (00:40:00)

Chaz1003

Fight Club - S7-E20

Continuity mistake: Scully tells Burt that Betty lived in a blue house and later tells Mulder that she found Lulu, who lived in a pink house. Betty actually lived in the pink house and Lulu lived in the blue one. (00:00:30 - 00:13:25)

Triangle - S6-E3

Factual error: The alternate version of Scully is identified as an OSS agent, but the OSS did not exist in 1939. (00:34:35)
