The X-Files

Arcadia - S6-E15

Continuity mistake: When Mulder and Scully are moving into the house, there is a shot of Mulder's watchface which reads that the date is the 7th. A few minutes later, Scully is walking around with a video camera, and narrating and she says the date is February the 24th.

Alpha - S6-E16

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the Riley Animal Hospital sign lights up, the time comes across the bottom of the screen saying 6:21 p.m. The scene then cuts to inside the animal hospital. However, the clock inside does not read 6:21. It reads somthing roughly before 6.

Three of a Kind - S6-E20

Continuity mistake: When Frohike plays the slot machine, the first position on the reel shows a single bar. After Byers spots Suzanne, the camera goes back to Frohike and the first position now is not a single bar. There wouldn't have been enough time between the shots for Frohike to have another pull of the machine.

The Unnatural - S6-E19

Continuity mistake: It seemed strange that Mulder was surprised not to find the Arthur Dales he knew at his apartment, when in "Agua Mala," he learned that Dales had moved to Florida.

Terms of Endearment - S6-E7

Continuity mistake: During the conversation with Scully regarding Wayne Weinsider, Mulder says "I don't know why. I'm not a psychologist", which must be a big surprise for all viewers, to say the least. Mulder graduated from Oxford University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology (e.g. "Dreamland II") and he worked for some time as a profiler for the FBI (e.g. "Young at Heart").

Field Trip - S6-E21

Continuity mistake: At Mulder's 'funeral' around when there is a knock at the door, we see Frohike raise his bottle to take a swig. The shot cuts to facing Scully and we can see Frohike further in the background and his bottle is nowhere to be seen, when he should've been mid-swig.

Mistakes

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.

Trivia

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.
