The Truth - S9-E19

Release - S9-E17

Other mistake: When Doggett starts clawing at the freshly plastered wall, he does so at just below his eye-level and blood starts pouring from the hole he makes. The dead woman inside the wall was stabbed in the lower abdomen; there's no way that blood from the abdominal wound would've seeped through the wall at the level he was digging.

Nothing Important Happened Today II (2) - S9-E2

Factual error: Deputy Director Alvin Kersh tells Agent Doggett a story about King George III, who, on July 4th, 1776, the same day the American colonies declared their independence, allegedly made an entry in his diary: "Nothing important happened today." However, according to Arnold Hunt, curator at the British Library, King George III never kept a diary.

Nothing Important Happened Today II (2) - S9-E2

Factual error: After a short examination of Shannon McMahon with a stethoscope and blood pressure meter Scully definitely claims that physically Shannon is absolutely normal. However, this type of examination cannot reveal any of Shannon's supernatural abilities. In order to prove or disprove that Shannon is a supersoldier, Scully could only examine if she could breathe underwater.

Trust No 1 - S9-E6

Continuity mistake: When Scully reads the alleged printout of the email sent to her by Mulder, it says: "Dearest Dana: I've resisted contacting you for reasons I know you appreciate...I want to come home, to you, to William", but when Scully has previously viewed this message in the internet café, it had a different form: "I've resisted contacting you for reasons I know you continue to appreciate...I want to come home. To you, and to William."
