  • Season 10 Episode 3: Mulder & Scully Meet the ...

  • The other headstone in the cemetary scene was inscribed to Jack Hardy, an assistant director on both Millennium and The Lone Gunmen, who has also since died.

  • The gravestone at which Mulder sets the flowers in the cemetary-walk scene is inscribed Kim Manners. Kim Manners is a long-time director of X-Files, who directed 52 episodes. The gravestone is inscribed with Kim Manners' actual birth-date and death-date, January 13, 1951 - January 25, 2009. It also is inscribed with the epitaph "Let's kick it in the ass," which Kim Manners was fond of saying.

  • Season 10 Episode 2: Founder's Mutation

  • St. Elizabeths Hospital

    Some scenes of the episode were set at St. Elizabeths Hospital. The official name is St. Elizabeths Hospital without an apostrophe before the "s". In the episode, the name is listed onscreen as "St. Elizabeth Hospital" without the "s". Mulder pronounces the name correctly with an "s" but the closed captioning spells it incorrectly as "St. Elizabeth's Hospital" with the apostrophe before the "s".

    The facility has treated the mentally ill as well as individuals who have committed crimes but were found not guilty by reason of insanity. The most famous modern patient is John Hinckley, Jr., who tried to assassinate President Reagan in 1981. He is still a patient there but is now allowed extended off-campus visits to his mother's house. St. Elizabeths is being redeveloped as the new headquarters for the U.S. Dept. of Homeland Security (West Campus) as well as a sports complex for the Washington Mystics and a practice center for the Washington Wizards (East Campus).

  • Season 10 Episode 1: My Struggle

  • At 24:11 in this episode when Mulder visits Skinner and his old office, there are still pencils in the ceiling panels that Mulder threw there during the Steven King episode S05E10, Chinga.

  • Season 9 Episode 20: The Truth (2)

  • The last scene mirrors a scene in the pilot where Mulder first opens up to Scully.

  • Season 9 Episode 19: The Truth (1)

  • In this episode, we see the fourth and final kiss between Mulder and Scully. While it is true that this is the fourth episode in which Mulder and Scully kiss, they share multiples kisses in this episode.

  • In this episode, we finally know for sure that Mulder is the father of William. When the guards are questioning him, he says he's thinking about his son and his mother.

  • Scully's full name is Dana Katherine Scully.

  • Mulder's full name is Fox William Mulder.

  • Season 9 Episode 18: Sunshine Days

  • When Doggett is transported up to the roof and finds himself upside down walking along the rafters, how come his tie remains in the position you'd expect if someone were standing upright? Surely it should have been dangling down - he was the one being affected, not his clothes. But gravity doesn't seem to follow the normal rules here.

  • Goof: When Oliver changes the house to the landscape, Doggett and Reyes stand up from the table and walk around. While doing so, they cast shadows both above and beneath the table (impossible in itself), while the table casts no shadows at all.

  • How could Agent Scully get an electric shock while doing the autopsy while she's wearing latex gloves which are strong insulators?

  • Goof: Agent Reyes states the real Brady Bunch house is on a studio backlot. The house is a real house located at 11222 Dilling Street, Studio City, California. It is owned by the McCallister family, who built a fence around the front yard a few years ago, because the fans trespassing to peek into the Bradys' living room -- which existed only on a Paramount sound stage.

  • Season 9 Episode 16: William

  • How is it that Mulder and Spender can have the same DNA if they are only half brothers. My understanding is that only twins will have the same DNA.

    In any event, Spender was a FBI agent as much as Mulder was. If they have the same DNA, the system should have logged 2 hits instead of just 1 hit on Mulder.

  • Season 9 Episode 15: Jump the Shark

  • Michael McKean played Lenny on Laverne and Shirley, a spin-off of Happy Days. Michael first appeared as Leonard 'Lenny' Kosnowski on Happy Days, the show that "Jump the Shark" was coined for (referring to the show where Fonzie jumped a shark tank). Today "jumped the shark" is slang used for any TV show that has tried too many gimmicks to promote ratings, or more generally to refer to anything that has gone on too long and lost its way.

  • During the funeral scene, it is obvious that the caskets are simply sitting on the ground and that there are no holes dug under them.

  • Since when are firedoors air-tight enough to contain a virulent virological plague?

  • Season 9 Episode 14: Scary Monsters

  • When Scully is doing the cat necroscapy with the barbecue tongs and a sharp knife, in her Marigold gloves and cooking apron, she is interrupted by a phone call. She asks the delivery guy to take over, but despite the fact that she has just been prizing open the dead and buried cat's ribcage, she doesn't give him any protection, and she seems fine to pick up the phone with her rancid cat encrusted gloves, and put it to her face. She's a doctor - the cat's been dead a while, could have had anything in its stomach, William is in an adjoining room. Her hygiene sure leaves a whole lot to be desired! Even live cats can carry diseases.

  • When Doggett shot the "monsters" in the beginning of the episode, a bullet hole should have appeared in the floor, but no mark was visible.

  • Season 9 Episode 13: Improbable

  • Goof: When the numerologist, Vicki Louise Burdick (Ellen Greene) is lying dead on the examination table at 22:45, you can see her eyes moving under her closed eyelids.
