Goofs

In the episode just prior to this one ("Our Town"), Mulder knows of the Anasazi, since he mentions them when talking about cannibalism, which is the prevailing theory about how they were wiped out. Yet, he reacts to the old man's mention of them as if learning for the first time, and is all too willing to accept aliens returning to their home planet as an alternate explanation. See more »

Possible Easter Egg found that may have not been noticed
26 March 2017 | by way729See all my reviews

Just wanted to make notice of a possible Easter Egg that may have not been noticed. When Mulder returns to the front door of his apartment we see that the number of his apartment is "42". That may be a reference and honor to the Science Fiction Comedy book called "Life, The Universe, and Everything" written by Douglas Adams, of which the number "42" plays a part of the story. So correct me if I am wrong if this has no reference to the novel. Or even the related T.V. series that was made from his novel.
