The X-Files

The X-Files (1993)

5 corrected entries in season 6

Drive - S6-E2

Corrected entry: Watch the odometer in Mulder's car. When we first get a shot of it the counter is at about 2092, the when he runs out of gas it is at 2043.


Correction: The digit under the indicator is not 0 and the number is not 2043. It is probably 2, 7 or 9. It is especially clear when compared to the shape of other 0s on the odometer.

One Son (2) - S6-E12

Corrected entry: At the end of the season 1 finale, The Erlenmeyer Flask, CSM is seen placing the alien embryo (pickled in a jar) in a box somewhere deep in the Pentagon's storage facility - yet in season 6's One Son, the embryo is back in the flask, in the freezing solution where Scully found it in the first place.



Correction: The Smoking Man, who put the embryo in the pentagon's vast storage room in season 1, has direct access to the pentagon at all times and is extremely high up in the ranks of the conspirators, it's more than plausible that he could have taken the embryo back from storage and returned it to the freezing containment if it was needed for further tissue/testing.


How The Ghosts Stole Christmas - S6-E6

Corrected entry: At the beginning, when Scully is parked in her car next to Mulder's, she says 'it's Christmas Eve, I have wrapping to do'. The shot turns to the gifts in the back of her car and every one of them is already wrapped.

Correction: I fail to see how this is a mistake, she did not say she had to wrap all the packages in her car just that she had wrapping to do, which she does with the other packages. Many stores offer complimentary gift wrapping and it is very common to see people out shopping with some packages wrapped and others in need of wrapping.


Rain King - S6-E8

Corrected entry: This whole episode takes place six months after Valentine's Day (August) when the episode aired in January. Another thing wrong is that Mulder and Scully are on the case when they're currently off the X-Files. The mayor even said that the FBI gave the case to them.

Correction: The date an episode takes place does not always have to coincide with the air date. The case they are sent to investigate by the FBI is a fraud claim against the Rain King, not an X-File. They both still work for the FBI.

Tithonus - S6-E10

Corrected entry: During the interview with Fellig, Agent Ritter gives the date as January 4th [1999]. Since the episode started the day before, it seems harsh for the FBI to be forcing Mulder and Scully (and several other agents) to be doing background checks on the Sunday after New Year's.

Correction: Ok, New year is the passing from December 31st to January 1st. So if you say the interview was on the 4th and they met the day before meaning the 3rd they werent working right after New years. It was in fact 2 days after New Year.

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



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.



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.
