The X-Files (1993)

60 mistakes in season 3

731 (2) - S3-E10

New this month Revealing mistake: At the very beginning of the scene when the bomb is shown, in the lower part of the screen a moving red spot appears which probably comes from the reflection of the bomb's red diode in the camera.

Paper Clip (3) - S3-E2

Visible crew/equipment: When Mulder and Scully enter the abandoned mine through a doorway, the viewer can see at right in the distance a number of people sitting on a wall, and one crouching in front of the wall with what looks like a dog. They are sitting still, but there is still movement there.

Syzygy - S3-E13

Visible crew/equipment: When Scully says "This is rumor panic" you see the camera shadow following her on the lower left side of screen.

The Blessing Way (2) - S3-E1

Continuity mistake: When Mulder experiences his near-death trance state his body is lying, apparently lifeless, in a star spangled sky. As the camera tracks in on him the toes on his right foot twitch, just after Deep Throat begins to speak. The foliage covering his chest also changes position between shots. In the wide shot he is covered up to the armpits. But the first close up shows his chest is exposed. Then in later close ups it is covered again.

Clyde Bruckman's Final Repose - S3-E4

Visible crew/equipment: When the agent says "I'm Kline, this is Havez" the boom mic is by the light on the ceiling.

2Shy - S3-E6

Piper Maru (1) - S3-E15

Continuity mistake: When Skinner walks into the cafe (the time he gets shot) another man is just walking out, leaving a table with a used glass and coffee cup. The waitress is in the back, getting Skinner a cup of coffee (she couldn't have cleaned the other table yet), but when we look over Skinner's shoulder you can see that the other table is cleared and has a clean coffee cup (turned upside down) on it.

Oubliette - S3-E8

Factual error: Scully stops Mulder from performing CPR on Amy when, as a medical doctor, she should have known that it is possible to revive cold-water drowning victims long after the heart stops.

The Walk - S3-E7

Deliberate mistake: It's completely impossible that the sound of the tape(that sounds like "Fox Maytrink") is in fact "Your time has come,Killer".

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.

731 (2) - S3-E10

Continuity mistake: If you watch closely you can see that Mulder runs the key card through the door scanner the wrong way, scanning nothing but plastic.

Revelations - S3-E11

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.

Grotesque - S3-E14

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.

xx:xx:xx

The Walk - S3-E7

Continuity mistake: General Callahan tells Mulder that the man he saw in his office said his name, but all he said was, "Your time has come, killer".

xx:xx:xx

Nisei (1) - S3-E9

Continuity mistake: When Senator Richard Matheson tells Mulder about the four Japanese Nationals had been murdered, he says that the murders had occurred several weeks ago. But when Mulder brings Scully up to speed a scene or two later, he tells her that someone must have been able to identify the four doctors who were performing the autopsy because they were murdered YESTERDAY.

xx:xx:xx

The Walk - S3-E7

Continuity mistake: General Callahan, who is referred to as General Callahan throughout the episode by Mulder, gets called "Lieutenant" Callahan in the last scenes in the steam-room, while lying on the floor.

Syzygy - S3-E13

Continuity mistake: When Scully arrives to investigate the kid who was crushed by the bleachers the time stamp says 5:10AM. It seems strange that the investigation would start the next morning, unless the high school holds basketball practice at 3:00 in the morning.

xx:xx:xx

Apocrypha (2) - S3-E16

Continuity mistake: Mulder recalls to Scully that he saw Krycek being pulled out of the car and then saw the bright flash, but he only came to just in time to see the flash.

xx:xx:xx

Talitha Cumi (1) - S3-E24

Continuity mistake: In the pre-credits sequence when the gunman is shot by the police officer, he initially clutches a wound on his right side. When he is shown lying down, the bullet wound is higher up and on his left side.
