Trivia

The newspaper that Mulder reads in his apartment is called the DC MUSE, a subtle allusion to the band MUSE, who released their debut album, Showbiz, the same year this aired. The font for the newspaper is clearly the band's logo, which was incorporated See more »

Goofs

In several shots, the milagro charm, given to Scully by Phillip Padgett, is blank on both sides. When shown in a close up, there is clearly a burning heart on one side of the charm. As Scully turns it in her fingers as she explains to Mulder that it was Padgett who gave it to her, you can see that it is flat and unmarked on both sides. See more »

Quotes

Mulder: Mr Padgett... you can go. We apologise for our mistake. You're free to finish your book.
Phillip Padgett: Thank you. I made a mistake myself.
Mulder: What's that, Mr Padgett?
Phillip Padgett: In my book, I'd written that Agent Scully falls in love but that's obviously impossible. Agent Scully is already in love.

Scully's Beating Heart
11 August 2008 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This episode is unique to say the least. It is really scary and weird thats for sure. Probably the weirdest episode of The X-Files ever. It shows the darker side of the human imagination, and a fatal attraction the writer Padgett has for Scully. Padgett develops an obsession with Scully and decides to write about her, which has deadly consequences. I love how the ending is so ambiguous and leaves you with more questions than answers. Was it all just imagined or did it actually happen? This episode is a classic X-File , and one of my favorites for sure. It has to be watched carefully and with full attention. Probably the best in season six.
