Near the end, Mulder and alternate Scully enter and run down a hallway and are stopped by a Nazi. The scene was shot aboard the Queen Mary and the hallway they are in runs down the spine of the ship almost from end-to-end. While the ship is at dock, this hallway is curved upwards at the front and back, because the ship was designed to flex a considerable amount while on the open water. While the ship was in use, children used to sit at either end of the hallway and wait for the middle of the ship to flex upwards, turning the hallway from an elongated U shape into a straight flat line. When this happened, the children at the ends of that hallway would be able to see each other briefly before the ship flexed downward again. See more
The action in this episode takes place prior to the United States' entry into World War II; the analogue to Scully claims to be working for the Office of Srategic Services (OSS), but that agency did not come into being until 13 June 1942, about six months after the US entered the conflict. However, since the WW2 era sequences are as likely to be a hallucination as time travel, this may be deliberate and based upon Mulder's lack of knowledge. See more
Don't ask too many questions. I don't care what you do, or who you do, or who you have to grease. I need that information, and I need it now. Are we clear on that?
The opening tag line reads 'Die Wahrheit Ist Irgendwo Da Draußen', German for 'The Truth Is Somewhere Out There'. See more
