Did You Know?

Starting at about 19 minutes in, the camera looks over Mulder's shoulder at the dashboard of the car he's "driving". Since neither the speedometer nor any other gauges are moving we can assume his car is on a flatbed under the control of another vehicle.See more »

The FBI has nothing to hide., 4 June 2007
Author: Muldernscully from Roy, Utah

Back in 2000, when this episode initially aired, if you missed the promo spots for X-Cops, you were in for a surprise. Opening up the X-Files with the Cops warning and theme would make you re-check the TV guide and make sure you were watching the right show. Wow. A collaboration between a fictional TV show and a reality TV show had to have been a first when X-Cops aired. This episode is so much fun, made all the funner if you're familiar with Cops. Besides having the Cops opening theme, the show also uses the Cops font for captioning locations and names. I envy the cop who got to frisk Scully. It's so funny to watch Scully's reactions to being filmed. Her acting has never been better than in this episode. I love it when she hides behind the door. I like Ricky the police sketch artist. His haircut reminds me of Sideshow Bob from the Simpsons. Steve and Edy are quite funny, though they make me squirm a little. Until I just looked it up on, I didn't get Mulder's line of "the Steve and Eydie?" It's a reference to a 60's and 70's husband and wife singing duo named Steve and Eydie. I also like Mulder's line that "bubblegum pink is a good color for Scully". It's funny to see Mulder completely enjoying Steve and Edy. Was that acting? Or could DD just not contain his laughter? Scully's line during the autopsy is great, smiling at the camera and saying, "the FBI has nothing to hide". And finally, when Scully laments that Mulder didn't get proof again of the paranormal, Mulder points at the camera and says "it all depends on how they edit it." Excellent episode! I laugh out loud the entire time I watch this episode every time. It is too fun.
