  • Season 7 Episode 6: The Goldberg Variation

  • Goof: Maurice (the convenience store proprietor) twice claims Henry's discarded lottery ticket, the first time when he says that anything in the trash "belongs to the store" and again when Mulder reports that Maurice told him that the punk's dying wish was for Maurice to keep it. In any case, Illinois law prohibits employees of lottery vendors from profiting off tickets sold where they work.

    Furthermore, there should have been no need for Henry to discard the ticket. Scratch-off games, whatever the winnings, in both Illinois (when the episode takes place) and Wisconsin (where the lottery ticket was from) always pay in lump sums, not installments. (In Illinois' multi-state lottery that features multi-million dollar payoffs, winners have the option of collecting in installments or a lump sum).

  • Error in Geography: Although the entire episode took place in Chicago, the lottery tickets sold at the convenience store were from the Wisconsin lottery.

  • Season 7 Episode 5: Rush

  • Even though the man himself is moving at super speed. When he opened and closed the locker door and car door, you would still be able to hear them close or slam.

    _ _ _

    Even when moving at super speed, wouldn't it be difficult to co-ordinate your movements at that speed? Especially for a newly empowered Tony.

  • When the bullet is seen passing through Max and about to hit Chastity, it is perfectly formed just like it would be when still attached to the casing. In reality, bullets deform significantly when they enter an object such as a human body - typically looking more like a mushroom than a bullet.

  • In the scene from the CCTV footage, there should have been a longer pause while the flashlight was removed from the locker. Not just the kid rushing in and straight out again in 1/33rd of a second.

  • Max tells Scully she must have been a "Betty" back in the day, which is slang for a hot chick.

  • The dates on the academic discipline and progress forms for Max are not in accord with the order of the episode, coming after the Millennium episode. Supposedly the changes in his behavior and grades started a few months before, but the reports are from a few years ago.

  • If he is moving faster than the eye can see then so should whatever he is holding, therefore you shouldn't have been able to see the table or the chair etc,

    However, you would see the table and chair move if he threw or pushed it.

  • Season 7 Episode 4: Millennium

  • At the beginning of the episode, right before the agents meet Frank Black, they show the outside of Hartwell Psychiatric Hospital. The shot of the building shows that it is daytime. When they show Mulder and Scully walking down the hall, and speaking with Frank Black, it is very dark.

  • When Skinner hands Mulder and Scully the Millenium Groups symbol, we can see that it's a Ouroboros. This is the same symbol that Scully got tattooed on her back in Never Again.

  • Season 7 Episode 3: Hungry

  • The air date of this episode was November twenty-first, Chris Carter's wife's birthday.

  • Season 7 Episode 2: The Sixth Extinction II: ...

  • When Mulder is laying on top of the operating table, we clearly see that he is strapped down to it. When Scully comes and they have that brief conversation he goes to hug her and is no longer strapped down.

  • Medical Reference: Phenytoin
    Scully mentions that Mulder has been injected with phenytoin. Phenytoin is the generic form of the drug Dilantin. The most common use of this medication is the prevention of convulsions in seizure disorders such as epilepsy.

  • Season 7 Episode 1: The Sixth Extinction (2)

  • 11:09 Mulder writes on Skinner's hand one way, but the next time it is shown it is different 14:43

  • When we see Scully writing down the translations of Navajo words for the nucleotides in DNA, adenine, guanine, thymine and cytosine, Scully has written the first one as "ademine".

  • Season 6 Episode 22: Biogenesis (1)

  • When Mulder and Scully are examining the artifact in his office, there are pencils hanging from the ceiling tile over Mulder's desk in the background. Presumably this is a habit that Mulder has had at least since the episode, "Chinga," although they cannot be the same pencils since the office burned down at the end of season 5.

  • The establishing outside shot of the Hospital Mulder went to was also used that same year as San Francisco Memorial Hospital on the show Charmed. In this episode, the hospital is supposed to be in Georgetown.

  • Season 6 Episode 21: Field Trip

  • Goof: Mulder's car is nowhere to be seen at the end when they are rescued.

  • When Scully approaches the area where Mulder's car was left, she is driving the coroner's pickup truck. And while the decal on the door of the truck clearly states Boone County Coroner, the truck has a US Government license plate on the front. In actuality it should have a county plate.

  • In one of the final scenes, Mulder discovers that they are still hallucinating, because their skins are unmarked even though they spent several days covered in digestive acids. Later, when they are really rescued from the acids, their skins still show little sign of being eaten at for several days.
