Mulder's badge number is JTT047101111.
Scully's is JTT03316613.
Scully drinks her coffee with cream,
but no sugar.
Mulder is red/green colorblind.
(Does that mean he can't tell how bright Scully's hair is?)
Mulder and Scully always get rental
cars from the same rental company (Lariat).
Mulder first fires his gun in the episode
In "Shadows," the cars have no license
plates. They have either been removed or blacked out.
Scully first fires her gun in the epidose
"Ghost in the Machine."
Max Fenig's NICAP hat can be found on
various coat racks throughout the series, generally on the one in Mulder's
apartment. (NICAP stands for National Investigative Committe on Arial Phenomena.)
In the episode "Fire," there was dialoge
cut from the final version in which Scully says "Well, never let it be
said that you wouldn't walk through fire for a woman, Mulder." To
which Mulder replies: "And never let it be said that I wouldn't do it for
you again, Scully."
Also in "Fire," in the scene where Scully
is typing on the computer, the footage was taken directly from "Squeeze."
Even the photos on the desk are the same.
In the episode "Beyond the Sea," Scully
says to Boggs, "If he dies because of what you've done..." however, what
was originally scripted was "If I lose him because of what you've done..."
The autopsy number in "The Host" is
#DP112148. (Dori Pearson is Chris Carter's wife. Her birthday
is 11/21/48.) The body being autopsied is John Doe #101356. (Chris
Carter's birthday is 10/13/56.)
While filming "Duane Barry," Gillian
Anderson was very pregnant, and so as an in-joke, Scully is buying pickles
and ice cream at the grocery store in this episode.
In "Aubrey," in the scene where BJ Morrow
discovers the body in the basement, when Mulder and Scully come running
down the stairs, Scully trips a little, and Mulder reaches out a hand to
catch her (you'll have to look closely).
In "Irresistible," when Mulder and Scully
go out to the graveyard, one of the stones behind them says "Ray Soams."
It's the grave stone used in the Pilot episode.
Also in "Irresistible," it was originally
scripted for Mulder to kiss Scully on the forehead when she finally collapses
into his arms.
In "Clyde Bruckman's Final Repose,"
while Clyde is trying to pick up psychic clues from different materials,
he holds up a blue scrap of fabric and proclaims that it's Mulder's, torn
from his New York Knicks T-shirt. This is a direct reference to "Beyond
the Sea," in which Mulder gives Boggs a scrap of blue fabric, only to tell
him later (after he puts on quite a show of obtaining information from
it) that it was torn from his NY Knicks shirt.
In the beginning of "Pusher," Robert
Patrick Modell is at the supermarket, and on the cover of a tabloid at
the checkout counter, there is a picture of the Flukeman with a headline
that reads something like "Monster spotted off Atlantic coast."
Also in the episode "Pusher," in the
scene where Mulder goes into the hospital looking for records on Modell
(just before Modell comes up behind him and just after he tells Scully
what he found), if you look closely at Mulder's lips, it appears as though
he mouths "I love you." Of course, why he'd be saying that at that
point in the episode, I have no idea.
In the book Moby Dick, the character
of Queequeg was a cannibal.
Darin Morgan, who played Eddie Van Blundht
and wrote many episodes (including "War of the Coprophages") also played
the Flukeman in "The Host." He is also long-time writer Glen Morgan's
In a scene cut from "Home," when Mulder
and Scully are examining the baby in the very small room, Mulder bumps
into Scully who shoots him a curious look. Mulder quips that it was
his penlight and Scully says "I thought it was a long-standing curiosity
In "Small Potatoes," when fake Mulder
is trying to seduce Scully, she is wearing pants, but when the real Mulder
bursts through the door and Scully pushes Van Blundht away from her, you
can see that her knees are bare... hmmmm...
There was an improvized kiss on the
lips in the hallway scene in "Memento Mori" that was removed from the final
cut of the episode. Along with this was an extra line that Scully
said at the end of her monologue: "But there is one thing that I
am most certain of... that as long as I'm able, I need to be with
you. Searching for the truth."
In the episodes "Unusual Suspects" and
"Travelers," the Mulder of the early 90's is wearing a wedding ring...
I hate to think what this could mean, considering who he was supposedly
involved with at the time... ::shudder::
An improvised line cut from th episode
"Post Modern Promethius," right after the waitress pours coffee on him,
has Mulder saying "Why'd you go and do that for? Now my crotch is
going to be up all night!" hehe.
The cross necklace that Scully wears
in the movie is different from the one she wears in the show- it is much
Vince Gilligan tries to work his girlfriend's
name (Holly Hartwell Rice) into every episode that he writes. Examples:
Holly- Sharon Modeski's alias in "Unusual Suspects," Sheriff Hartwell in
"Bad Blood," Holly in "Pusher," and Detective Rice in "Folie a Deux."
There was some alleged rejected dialogue
from the episode "One Son," in the decontamination shower scene in which
Scully says "My my..." and Mulder replies "Right back at you, Red..."
