Recurring use of the numbers: 1013 - Ten Thirteen is the name of Chris Carter's production company; his birthday is 13 October 1956. 1013 is also the silo number that Alex Krycek is locked into in season 3, and 10:13 is the time where start some episodes (or a scene that's dated at this time). The number 1121 also appears often; it is creator Chris Carter's wife, Dori's, birthday. See more »
There would have been several layers of supervision between Muldaur and Scully and Deputy Director Skinner, who would have been far too busy to personally supervise their section. See more »
You have to be willing to see.

Scully, you have to believe me. Nobody else on this whole damn planet does or ever will. You're my one in five billion.

The opening credits of the first 7 seasons include an extreme close-up of an eye blinking. In the 8th season credits, the eye belongs to 'Gillian Anderson (I)'. See more »
I find it hard to comment on The X- Files because it simply transcends words. It's an intelligent masterpiece, an epos of beautifully complicated scenarios, plots and characters. Eruditely taking on the grayest of areas, confronting those things under your bed and inside your closet thus bringing new meaning to the fears brought on by conventions and the imprudent obstinacy of social norms. The script, the actors and the direction make the most unbelievable seem believable and the unfathomable- unfathomably real. So thought provoking that if you really let yourself dwell in its essence, it can change the way you see the world, if only just by believing in the conviction that The Truth Is Out There.
