The X-Files Forever



31 Days of Halloween, Day 26: “Via Negativa” – Season 8

Synopsis | Doggett and Skinner try to avert the mysterious murder spree of a drug-induced cult leader who leaves no trace of evidence at the crime scenes.
Trivia | Curiously, Frank Spotnitz was inspired to write “Via Negativa” after a tube of toothpaste that, when opened, would have blood come out; since he was unable to think of any real-world scenario involving that idea, he eventually came up with the episode’s concept of dreams and nightmares. It is one of Robert Patrick’s favorite episodes.
Quotes | Doggett: [to Skinner] “Just ’cause I’m assigned to the X-Files you want me to think like Scully or Mulder would. You got the wrong guy. I need facts, not wild ideas.”

31 Days of Halloween, Day 25: “Roadrunners” – Season 8

Synopsis | Scully evades Doggett’s help in pursuing a dangerous cult that worships a slug-like creature.
Trivia | Some cameramen freaked out during the production of “Roadrunners” due to its graphic nature. The parasitic creature was designed to look like a banana slug, and was created via animatronics.
Quotes | Scully: “Look, I, uh… I wanted to apologize. I… I left you out of this case, and that was a mistake on my part. It was almost a fatal mistake.” Doggett: “It was. You screwed up.” Scully: “And I won’t do it again.” Doggett: “I appreciate it.”

31 Days of Halloween, Day 21: “X-Cops” – Season 7

Synopsis | Mulder and Scully are followed documentary-style by a Cops camera crew as they investigate an unseen entity on the streets of Los Angeles.
Trivia | The episode’s original title is “Bad Boys”. “X-Cops” is one of two episodes of the series to take place in real time. At some point, David Duchovny was a possible choice to direct it; time constraints and plans for him to direct “Hollywood A.D.” made it necessary to select another director. It ranks as the most-watched stand-alone episode of Season 7 with 16.6 million viewers – original US broadcast. It serves as a fictional crossover with the series Cops.
Quotes | Scully: “Look, Mulder, you want to talk about werewolves to me you can knock yourself out. I may not agree with you, but at least I’m not going to hold it against you. But this… Mulder, this could ruin your career.” Mulder: “What career? Scully, I appreciate it. You don’t want me looking foolish. I do. I appreciate that.” Scully: “I don’t want me looking foolish, Mulder.”

31 Days of Halloween, Day 17: “Terms of Endearment” – Season 6

Synopsis | Mulder winds up pursuing a man whom he believes is actually a demon bent on fathering a child.
Trivia | “Terms of Endearment” marks the third time Mulder and Scully encounter a demonic entity. Earlier versions of the script were lighter on human interest and heavier on pure shock value – at one point, there was a birth to a serpent, not a demon baby. Interestingly, that bit is later recovered for the seventh season episode “Signs & Wonders” – a horrifying scene wherein a woman gives birth to snakes.
Quotes | Scully: “Mulder, we are supposed to be doing background checks, not chasing X-Files.” Mulder: “Scully, Spender just round filed this case – it’s unconscionable.” Scully: “And what do you call rooting through his trash?”
