Synchrony - S4-E19

Plot hole: Scully's statement that she was 23 when she wrote her senior thesis in college throws off her timeline of college, med school, residency, FBI Academy, Quantico teaching assignment for two years, and X-Files assignment at 28. Her undergraduate degree in Physics should have been completed when she was 20 or 21 to allow at least 4 or 5 years for her medical training.

Musings of a Cigarette-Smoking Man - S4-E7

Synchrony - S4-E19

Deliberate mistake: When the unconscious, naked Asian doctor is removed from the warming tub, his hands are clasped over his crotch to protect his modesty, despite the fact that he shouldn't be able to do that, since he isn't conscious and his previously frozen limbs are now pliable and relaxed due to the heat.
