Other mistake: After AD Skinner is finished being interviewed by the police, Mulder asks him about why he would employ the services of a prostitute. Skinner looks at him in shock and Mulder says "You didn't know she was a prostitute did you?" I find it hard to believe that at no point in the interview did the police not mention to Skinner the dead woman he woke up next to, after spending the night with her, was a prostitute.

Nisei (1) - S3-E9

Other mistake: It seems that the first round fired by the hit squad destroys the camera or its power supply unit, because the satellite transmission is interrupted exactly at the moment the squad enters the train car. However, the members of the squad firstly shoot in the glass and then at the doctors. (00:06:25)

Oubliette - S3-E8

Other mistake: There is too much light on the ceiling for the tiny hole Amy accidentally discovers on the wall. In one shot it is plain to see that there are other light sources. (00:20:00)

Pusher - S3-E17

Other mistake: The FBI crest outside the main FBI building is incorrect as it has the words UNITED STATES BUREAU OF INVESTIGATION on it instead of FEDERAL BUREAU OF INVESTIGATION.

Bad Blood - S5-E12

Visible crew/equipment: I don't know if this is visible in all formats, but on the newest UK release on DVD, watching in widescreen, it's amazingly obvious. When Mulder recovers from the vampire attack, he gets up from the floor and breaks up a chair to make a stake. There is a shot of his feet as he smashes the legs off and bends to pick up a piece. In the bottom left hand corner of the screen, you can see a crew member's hand carefully and quickly placing a piece of wood on top of the pile for Mulder to pick up.

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?

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).
