The X-Files

Our Town - S2-E24

Other mistake: Unlike Mr Chaco, who has the brace clamped around his neck, Scully is clamped around the top of her head, which is a quite irrational way of executing a person, because the clamp does not serve as a stabilizer. In fact, in this arrangement, Scully is not fixed to the stand at all. (00:38:15)

Anasazi (1) - S2-E25

Other mistake: Immediately after a shot has been heard, Mulder, who is in flat #42, grabs his gun and rushes through the corridor passing by flat #47, which means he is still on the same floor. Within 10 seconds after the shot, the next-door lady is already aware of the crime. Not mentioning that 2 seconds later two policemen arrive at the scene. (00:07:21)

Duane Barry (1) - S2-E5

Other mistake: An agent and Scully analyze the fragment taken out from Duane Berry's body. The agent draws Scully's attention to "small markings", which are half a monitor size, and Scully naively asks where they are. (00:39:00)

Clyde Bruckman's Final Repose - S3-E4

Clyde Bruckman: You know, there are worse ways to go, but I can't think of a more undignified way than autoerotic asphyxiation.
Mulder: Why are you telling me that?
Clyde Bruckman: Look, forget I mentioned it. It's none of my business.

Trust No 1 - S9-E6

Question: After blowing up the car, when the NSA guy answers Scully's question, "How the hell do you know my size?" he says, "I know the name of your college boyfriend, your true hair colour, your ATM PIN number." This strongly suggests that red is not her true colour. Therefore, my question is: What is the true colour of Scully's hair?

Chop Luftmysza

Answer: He was being facetious. He doesn't specifically know that information, he was merely giving examples of the types of information he has access to.

Answer: Actress Gillian Anderson's natural hair color is strawberry blonde, which she dyed fiery red. (Although in the revival of the show she wears a wig).
