Once again we hear a dial tone when someone is talking on a cell phone. When CSM hangs up after talking to Krychek, we see Krychek holding his cell phone and we hear a dial tone.
At the beginning, when the sheriff hits the deputy's car and sees him with his eyes all burned, he turns to see the bounty hunter version of the deputy and he has three or four dripping green bullet wounds. Yet the sheriff just stands there staring at him for quite some time, looking perplexed. As far as the X-Files lore goes, the gas from the blood attacks people's eyes almost immediately. Why does it take so long with him?
When Scully is doing the autopsy on Anson Stokes, she uses yellow dust to make him visible again. She begins with his face, after which we cut to where she has done the entire body. We can also see his hair, even though it's not made yellow, but is the original brown colour.
In this episode Mulder mentioned Mark Twain trailpark. Mark Twain was a very successful author. His books included, Huckleberry Fin and the Adventures of Tom Sawyer.
When Leslie wishes for his brother to come back; he comes back, "as is." Why doesn't he come back invisible?
When Anson (Kevin Weisman) is splashing through the mud puddle while invisible at 15:05, we should have been able to see the muddy water on his legs and feet. We should have also been able to see the dried mud on his legs and feet when he was lying dead on the side of the road at 15:45, as clothes or anything he is "wearing" does not turn invisible with him.
31:57 - Angry man walks away from cell bars, but at 31:59 when shot changes to Scully his arms are back on the bars.
In one of the last scenes in the episode "Fight Club". The person that was fighting Bert Zupanic in the ring was WWE superstar Rob Van Dam.
Despite the fact it makes for a neat little ending, showing Mulder & Scully's battle scars - as soon as the first set of twins come into the auditorium, everyone in the place starts to fight with each other.
Then when the second set arrive it gets worse, and yet during that scene there's no indication that either agent was affected. Mulder is surveying the scene and avoiding the violence going on around him. Scully is smiling to have introduced the second boxer guy. Surely if the effect of having these people in the same location was as automatic as we'd seen previously, everyone should have been fighting from the outset, including Mulder & Scully.
Why is Mr Saperstein in Mulder's office when Scully explains what has happened? Especially considering he doesn't have a visitors clip, and the fact he is smoking in the FBI headquarters.
Scully tells Burt that Betty lived in a blue house and later tells Mulder that she found Lulu, who lived in a pink house. Betty actually lived in the pink house and Lulu lived in the blue one.
Towards the end of the autopsy scene, Scully has her back to the wall while talking to Mulder on her phone. If you look closely, you can see the crew member's shadows moving across the wall behind her.
When the cell phone rings during the scene in the crypt, Mulder uncovers the dead body with the phone in its hand. The display on the phone says "Micah Hoffman". Why then would they assume that it was Micah Hoffman's phone since caller ID indicates who is calling, not who owns the phone.
This episode was loosely based on the real life case of Mark Hofmann who many believe is the one of the most successful forgers in history. He successfully fooled the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to buying counterfeit documents that cast the church in bad light.
Given that Scully had already surmised that the bug larvae were being transferred by inhaling smoke, and knew from where it was coming, how come nobody was wearing any protection, like a gas mask or something when they went to investigate the guy responsible? Even as Skinner goes to step on the cigarette to put it out towards the end, it is still giving off significant amounts of smoke and he knew the dangers. Seems a little incongruous.
The music Mulder is dancing to after the theme is played is: Moby - The Sky Is Broken. It also features prominently throughout the episode.
When the sheriff goes to visit Jenny in the hotel room, he gets up in the middle of the night. In spite of the room being murky you can see daylight coming in through the windows, the same daylight that is coming through the next morning when Jenny is being attacked by the chimera.
Even with Easter Sunday at its latest, you would not see blooming roses, fully green trees, and other blooming flowers in Vermont at that time of year. In most cases, foliage would just be budding out and in some cases there might even still be significant snow on the ground.
There is much made of ravens in the episode, but from the look of it, the birds used weren't actually ravens. The common raven is a very large bird - up to almost 30 inches in length at maturity. They also have little 'beards' of feathers. These look more like crows, which belong to the same family.
The title of this episode seems to either be meaningless or be spelled wrongly. En Ami is french for: in friend. Relating to this episode they either meant: Entre Amis = Among Friends or En Amitié = In Friendship. Which would both suit the context.
Despite the oddity of the title in French, it creates a cross-language pun: While the title might be pronounced as the English word "enemy", the French version implies "friend".
Correction: Actually, "En Ami" makes perfect sense in French, there is no direct translation, but it would mean something along the lines of "as a friend".
