The X-Files

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)

Eve - S1-E11

Other mistake: Eve 6 says that ordinary human beings have 46 chromosomes, while the Adams and the Eves have 56 chromosomes. This makes 10 additional chromosomes. However, Eve 6 also mentions that they have additional chromosomes number 4, 5, 12, 16, and 22 - only 5 additional chromosomes. (00:22:40)

The Erlenmeyer Flask - S1-E24

Other mistake: Deep Throat says that Mulder and Scully are standing in the very room, where "the first human-alien hybrid was created." However, only in the "Patient X" episode, are we told that it is Cassandra who has just become the first successful human-alien hybrid. (00:28:00)

Fallen Angel - S1-E10

Other mistake: The fourth photo could not have been taken by Mulder, because he is shooting craft's pictures from elevation, while this photo is taken from the ground level. (00:08:45)

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. (00:15:40)

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.

Ghost in the Machine - S1-E7

Other mistake: When Jerry Lamana goes up in the elevator in the Eurisko building, the "thirteen floor" message is missing. (00:20:55)
