During the fight scene between Mulder and X, a crew person's hand is clearly visible moving upward on the far right hand side of the frame.
At the beginning, when the healer heals the shooter, he mysteriously repairs the damage to the shirt of the man. The man Scully talks to still has the hole in the shirt. Why didn't the man repair that too?
Mulder is red/green colour blind.
About the episode's halfway point, Mulder is trying to call Scully from a cell phone in his car. The tones heard imply he dials only seven numbers. In
1992 the telecommunication industry began to introduce "overlay plans" as a means to introduce new area codes. In this model, one fixed geographic area would concurrently have multiple valid area codes throughout. Overlay plans introduced a new inconvenience: mandatory 10-digit dialing (i.e., the area code must be included), even for local calls, in the affected area. This would be particularly true of cell phones and calls in and around large cities, like Washington D.C.
Braddock Heights, Maryland; Washington, D.C.
Scully uses the name "The Cancer Man" for the first time, describing the character also called "The Cigarette Smoking Man" or "CSM".
Actually Mulder uses the name "The Cancer Man" for the first time in the second season episode "One Breath".
Well, this might be more of a goof on X's part but, after X kills the two men near the end of the episode he puts the gun in one of the dead men's hands. This is wrong because when someone dies they won't hold on to anything they may have had in there hands they drop it. It would have been a better move to just drop the gun by the guy.
Scully fires 6 rounds at the hotel room door, though we are later told she fired only 4.
There was no car next to the pole that Mulder climb before he climbed it. But when he comes down, he steps on a trunk of a car.
When Mulder creeps around the house shortly before the end of the episode the timestamp shows 5:17PM, but a few minutes later Dr. Stroman says "It's almost seven o'clock.".
Blue Ridge Mountains, Georgia.
Heuvelman's Lake is actually named after Belgian cryptozoologist Bernard Heuvelmans who wrote the massive volume "In the wake of the Sea Serpents"
This episode is one of the few notable episodes in which the story line does not deal with any paranormal or supernatural forces.
The teenagers featured licking the toad in the scene on the dock appeared earlier in the season in the episode "War of the Coprophages."
In Heuvelmans Lake appears on souvenir mugs in The X-Files: The Game.
When Mulder and Scully are checking on Mrs. Skinner's car, you can see there is a punch in the front-left side.
The next car that they're examining, the one that "pushed her out of the road", they find scratches in the same side (left-front), This would mean that the car didn't push her out, but they crashed. In that case, the damages would be greater than they look like.
There's no way that two cars have the marks on the same side, unless they have crashed front to front.
Re the above goof: The character was originally written as a man, but when actress Tasha Simms was cast instead, the first name was changed in the script, but never changed in the closing cast credits.
When Mulder and Scully are examining the dead prostitute, you can see her eyes moving beneath her eyelids.
