Did You Know?


If you look closely at the papers that both Mulder and Scully print out with the "contact" information on them, one column reads "10.13" over and over again. "10-13" is the name of Chris Carter's production company as well as his birthday (October 13, 1956). See more »


Mulder notes to his tape recorder that the main lights don't work in the receiver room, but that the instrument lights are still working. After he finds Jorge, the ceiling lights seem to work thereafter. This is especially visible when Moulder records that state of Jorge's body to his tape machine. See more »


Scully: I was told by the Assistant Director that Mulder was gone.
Agent Morris: So?
Scully: So, whenever he's away, I feed his fish.

O.K. Not really. Little Green Men starts season two off on the right foot. The X-Files has been shut down. Mulder and Scully have been separated and re-assigned to different area. It's very interesting to see what life is like for these two, not being assigned to the x-files. Senator Matheson shows up to get Mulder fired up again about alien contact. Mulder flies on down to Puerto Rico where he meets up with Jorge. The drama picks up as Scully attempts to locate Mulder. Scully shows us her slight-of-hand abilities for the first time when trying to hide the computer print-out from the other agents in Mulder's apartment. There's an exciting chase scene in the jungles of Puerto Rico. It's great, towards the end, when Skinner asserts his distaste for the Cigarette Smoking Man by kicking him out of his office. Mulder gets his fire back for uncovering the truth, and it's great!
