The Blessing Way (2) - S3-E1

Continuity mistake: When Mulder experiences his near-death trance state his body is lying, apparently lifeless, in a star spangled sky. As the camera tracks in on him the toes on his right foot twitch, just after Deep Throat begins to speak. The foliage covering his chest also changes position between shots. In the wide shot he is covered up to the armpits. But the first close up shows his chest is exposed. Then in later close ups it is covered again. (00:14:25)

The Blessing Way (2) - S3-E1

Plot hole: Mulder is pulled from the escape hole previously dug by the hybrid aliens to escape the train car. When they pull him out they show alien bodies remaining in the hole. Mulder never revisits the train car despite knowing there's a high probability of finding hard evidence, in this case some actual bodies. There's no way Mulder would just assume there's no evidence remaining there and not go have a look for himself. Same goes for Cancerman who thought he had destroyed the evidence.

Clyde Bruckman's Final Repose - S3-E4

Clyde Bruckman: You know, there are worse ways to go, but I can't think of a more undignified way than autoerotic asphyxiation.
Mulder: Why are you telling me that?
Clyde Bruckman: Look, forget I mentioned it. It's none of my business.

Trust No 1 - S9-E6

Question: After blowing up the car, when the NSA guy answers Scully's question, "How the hell do you know my size?" he says, "I know the name of your college boyfriend, your true hair colour, your ATM PIN number." This strongly suggests that red is not her true colour. Therefore, my question is: What is the true colour of Scully's hair?

Chop Luftmysza

Answer: He was being facetious. He doesn't specifically know that information, he was merely giving examples of the types of information he has access to.

Answer: Actress Gillian Anderson's natural hair color is strawberry blonde, which she dyed fiery red. (Although in the revival of the show she wears a wig).
