The episode was designed to look as though it had been shot in four long takes. This was accomplished through editing, however, and some cuts are actually quite easy to detect. The last act has the most edits in it, and is the only cut that wasn't disguised. See more
The action in this episode takes place prior to the United States' entry into World War II; the analogue to Scully claims to be working for the Office of Srategic Services (OSS), but that agency did not come into being until 13 June 1942, about six months after the US entered the conflict. However, since the WW2 era sequences are as likely to be a hallucination as time travel, this may be deliberate and based upon Mulder's lack of knowledge. See more
