Biogenesis (1) - S6-E22

Factual error: In this episode, Mulder says, "In 1996, a rock from Mars was found in Antarctica." The rock ALH84001 was found in 1984, and the announcement that it may contain life came in 1996. (00:17:55)

Biogenesis (1) - S6-E22

Continuity mistake: When Mulder and Scully first see the artifact rubbing in Skinner's office, the rubbing is quite faint and lightly done. A couple of times during the episode, the rubbing becomes darker and heavier drawn.

Biogenesis (1) - S6-E22

Continuity mistake: At The End, when Scully is trying to wipe sand and water from the moving tide away from a section of spacecraft, she stands up and the camera pans out; she is suddenly 3 feet away from the ship and several more away from the tide line.

Biogenesis (1) - S6-E22

Factual error: This episode begins with Scully doing a voice-over about the incredible nature of our universe. The scene is very impressive visually, and would have been from the aspect of her oral presentation had it not been for a major error in the script. She says (more than once) that the universe is made up of matter and gas. This should have been "matter and energy". Gas is a form of matter.

Biogenesis (1) - S6-E22

Continuity mistake: When the two pieces combine into one and burst up into the Bible, in the first shot the neighboring books are leaning against the Bible, while in the following shot they are arranged in a neat pile. (00:05:30)

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).
