Factual error: After the agents meet with Kevin's father in the mental institute, Scully lists the medication that he is on: haloperidol, loxapine, and chlorpromazine make sense, but the fourth medication - LARGACTIL - is in error. Not only is it a brand-name of chlorpromazine, but it is not available in the USA, it is a CANADIAN drug.
Continuity mistake: When the bank manager goes to open the door for the brinks truck containing the robbers, the clock on the wall reads 9:45. When the robbers are taking him back to the vault, a couple of shots of the skull-masked robber shows the clock reading about 9:43.
Factual error: Mulder mentions the USS Eldridge as disappearing from Philadelphia (and later reappearing in Norfolk) "nine months after Roswell", i.e., May 1948. In fact, the supposed incident took place much earlier - in February 1943, according to almost all reliable sources.
Continuity mistake: When Scully and Mulder first visit John Mostow he says that he drew all the pictures of Gargoyles, which would have been a pretty good act considering he was in a strait jacket and would not have been allowed to have paper and drawing materials anyway.
Continuity mistake: In this episode, both Mulder and Scully say that the last time they were in Oregon was 7 years ago. A previous episode this season dealt with the millennium, so we know this episode took place in 2000. So seven years ago would be 1993, the year the show first aired. But in the Pilot episode, the corner of the screen reads their location in Oregon and March 7, 1992. 8 years ago.
Continuity mistake: At the end of this episode when Mulder is talking to Marty through her jail cell, the position of their hands change. In one shot, Mulder's hand is covering hers, and in the next, each of their hands are gripping the cell bars. This goes back and forth a few times.
