Did You Know?

Trivia

Goofs

Knowle Rohrer is not wearing a USMC haircut, he's actually far from it. An E-8 MSgt would be more squared away than that. See more »

Quotes

Monica Reyes: What is the point of all of this? To destroy a man who seeks the truth or to destroy the truth so no man can seek it? Either way, you lose.

Crazy Credits

In the main title for the ninth season, a piece of paper flashes across the screen listing "FBI Contacts: Witnesses and Contributors." The names on the list are screen names of the series' on-line fans. For episodes #9.01-#9.11, the names were randomly picked from various X-Files message boards. For episodes #9.12-#9.19, the names came from contest entries. See more »

Alternate Versions

In the alternate series ending, "Toothpick Man" (Alan Dale) hands George W. Bush (Unknown actor) a note. Bush reads it and asks "What do you want me to do? I thought this was being handled. The truth is out there now." TM replies "The truth has always been out there Mr. President. The people just don't want to believe." TM leaves and W stares out at the Washington Monument quietly. This ending can be found on the Region 1 DVD in the special features section. See more »

A fitting finale to a miraculous series
7 March 2005 | by tRiVi8LSee all my reviews

This 2-hour finale of the acclaimed TV Series, THE X-FILES, is a fitting send off of the show from the small screen to the big screen. From Mulder to Scully, Reyes to Doggett, Skinner, CSM, to some nifty tricks up the sleeve by Chris Carter, Frank Spotnitz, Gilligan, Manners, et al, this 2-hour episode does not disappoint! While the series finale does not untangle all the strings, the creators and talent do twine most of the strings together into a nice farewell. Die hard fans and casual viewers alike will find it thoroughly enjoyable. And, fear not, for this series finale marks the end of the television portion of THE X-FILES and marks the starting point of film versions to come!! Stay tuned for second THE X-FILES feature film in 2006! THE TRUTH IS OUT THERE
