Demons - S4-E23

Factual error: The date stamp says that it is April 12 and Scully says that it is Sunday, but April 12, 1997 was a Saturday. (00:03:10)

Leonard Betts - S4-E12

Factual error: When Scully is performing the autopsy on Leonard Betts' severed head, she states "As remains are incomplete, all observations refer to a decapitated head." This phrasing is redundant. The proper terminology would be "disembodied head." As a medical doctor, Scully should know this.

Tempus Fugit (1) - S4-E17

Factual error: Gonzales shot himself in the forehead but he's got the back of his head intact - no exit wound. (00:27:40)

Tempus Fugit (1) - S4-E17

Factual error: In the background the full moon is visible and it's early morning (approx. 6:00 AM). However, at the start of the episode we see the full moon at night (approx. 19:50). Due to the fact that these are consecutive days, this situation is impossible from an astronomic point of view. (00:14:35)

Terma (2) - S4-E9

Factual error: The last number on the truck's license plate is "77." On Russian plates the last two/three digits stand for a registration place. "77" is a number for Moscow, but the Gulag is located in Krasnoyarsk region, so the number should be different. Besides, the format of the plate (LDDDDL|DD) is incorrect - the correct one is LDDDLL|DD (L - letter, D - digit). (00:11:05)

Tunguska (1) - S4-E8

Factual error: This is probably the first time in history of civilized mankind that a person with a diplomatic visa is full-body-cavity searched, not to mention the illegal opening of the diplomatic bag. (00:04:05)

Musings of a Cigarette-Smoking Man - S4-E7

Factual error: In the US classified information system there is "compartmented information", but there's no "compartmentalised information." (00:08:00)

Never Again - S4-E13

Factual error: The first time we see Ed's tattoo, it is supposed to have been freshly done and he even removes the new bandage. However, there is no blood or excess ink on his arm, no redness around the lines, no swelling at all; no way at all that it could be a fresh tattoo.

[After spilling coffee on his lap.]
Mulder: Great, now my crotch will be up all night.



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.



Scully's father and the man Mulder thought was his father were both named William. Mulder's actual father, Cancer Man, was played by William B Davis. Scully and Mulder's son was also named William.
