Goofs

At about 9:12, FBI Agent Fox Mulder is not wearing a glove when he picks up the prosthetic eye that falls out of the laundry cart onto the floor. As an investigator, handling evidence from a person of interest at a location related to a crime, he should be wearing a glove to avoid placing his fingerprints on the prosthetic eye and to avoid cross contaminating the evidence.
