Major Goof - When Jackie throws the soup at Pinker, it passes through his clothes as well as his body; but Pinker can only make his body pass through objects, nothing else. This is illustrated by the way his clothes slid down the wall as he passed through it later in the episode.
When Scully and Trevor are locked in the telephone booth, Scully whispers "shit" when Pinker grabs the rock. Guess it missed the censors.
When June drives the car through Pinker, he gets cut in half with the windshield and Pinker's body goes through the engine block. Mulder comes and turns off the car's engine a minute later. But since Pinker has passed through the engine, the material would've changed, and the engine would have crumbled under the combustion or inertia forces.
Note to the above: Inertia would have kept the car going fast enough the kill Pinker. Also they never show us the engine so we can assume it did break down under the hood.
Why did Scully wonder why Pinker was still looking for the money he stole when it seemed from her next sentence like she had already figured out that he was really looking for his child?
Two of the episode's characters, Dr. Detweiler and Karin Berquist, take their names from Over the Rhine, a Cincinnati-based band featuring husband and wife duo Linford Detweiler and Karin Bergquist. Over the Rhine released an album entitled "Good Dog Bad Dog" in 1996, where some of the episode's canine focus likely came from as well.
Some transcripts describe the language spoken by the two boat hands at the start of the episode as Cantonese (it is noted that the ship has a 'Chinese' name) but they count down before open the crate in Japanese? There are certain similarities between the Japanese, Cantonese and Mandarin languages and dialects but they seemed to switch from one whole language to another.
This episode sees the return of the "I Want To Believe" poster. Karin Berquist had one and it arrives at the office at the end of the episode and Mulder puts it up.
When Mulder first discovers the hole in his neighbour's lawn and is lifting the grass, camera equipment is visible on the right side of the screen.
When Scully is doing her videoing, she mentions that Skinner had suggested they go undercover as 'prospective homebuyers'. Yet I don't know of any community - perfect or not - that allows 'prospective' buyers to move in with all their furniture and other bits and pieces. They even have the mailbox changed to show their names. And they certainly wouldn't be able to dig up the lawn for a reflection pool if they didn't own the property! Especially given the rule-heavy nature of this community.
EDIT: The case could've begun with them posing as prospective homebuyers to make the undercover more believable. I doubt they just picked out the community and immediately moved in.
When Cami gets up from dinner to walk the dog, you can see clearly that it is bright with daylight outside. When they get outside, however, it's nighttime.
Another thing wrong with Mulder's watch is that in this episode it has the date on it (the 7th and the 9th), but in the same spot in the previous episode "Monday" it had the day Mon. and Tues.).
When Scully starts filming she gives the date as February 24th but in the close up shots of Mulder's watch the date is the 7th and then the 9th.
How can Lt. Kraskow predict that they have "a body on the floor" due to the shot fired? One gunshot doesn't mean anyone has to be hurt, and everyone is actually lying down on the floor to begin with, as is common with hostage/robbery situations.
The first time we see Mulder's watch in this episode, the face is silver, but all the other times, the face is black, as it appears also in "Arcadia".
Mulder's waterbed is shown with a leak spraying water in the air. This might happen if one or more people were lying on the bed or pressing down on the mattress, but the fountain continues to spray when he is out of the bed. Waterbed leaks don't spray so much as ooze. Furthermore, the amount of water lost to cause the degree of saturation on the carpet (not to mention leaking into the apartment below) would mean that the bed would have lost most or all of its water, leaving Mulder waking up lying on the bottom of the mattress box.
Goof: When Mulder and Scully are in the laundry room of the Shipley's house, Mulder is carrying a small flashlight and Scully is carrying a large one. In the next scene, Scully is carrying a small one as well.
Addition: If you notice, the flashlights change throughout the episode, from the small handheld units to the larger battery pack ones.
At time index 29:37, Mulder stands ready with his firearm. It can be clearly seen that there is no magazine fitted to the weapon.
The location stamp states that the Elder's residence is in Silver Springs, Maryland. This is incorrect. The correct name of the city is Silver Spring.
Right after the young kid is killed for his tennis shoes, Fellig is confronted by the murderer and you can clearly hear the sound of a switchblade knife opening. When the knife is shown in Fellig's back and later in the evidence bag, however, it is a butterfly knife and not a switchblade.
Louis Brady had a 'Felon wanted by the FBI' file in 1929, but the FBI wasn't called the FBI until 1935; until then it was just the 'Bureau of Investigation'.
