  • Trivia & Quotes
  • Quotes (14)

    • Eve 10: Hello, Eve 8. Eve 9: We've been waiting ... Eve 8: How did you know I'd come for you ? Eve 10: We just knew. Eve 9: We just knew.

    • Deep Throat: Actually I was just in the neighborhood... Wondered if I ever told you about the Lichfield Experiments. Mulder: No you haven't. Deep Throat: Well, it was the most interesting project. Highest level of classification. All records have since been destroyed. And those who knew of it, denied knowledge of its existence. It existed during the height of the cold war. We got wind the Russians were fooling around with Eugenics. Rather primitively, I might add. Trying to crossbreed top scientists, athletes... to come up with the superior soldier. Naturally, we jumped on the band wagon.

    • Scully: Time of death was estimated at 2:30 p.m. Same day, only three hours earlier than the Simmons murder. Mulder: That's Pacific standard time. That makes it the exact same moment. Scully: It appears we have two serial killers working in tandem. Mulder: No. Serial killers seldom work in pairs. And when they do, they kill together not separately.

    • Mulder: Are you at all familiar with the phenomena of cattle mutilations? Since 1967, over 34 states have reported unsolved cases of cattle mutilations. Trace evidence is remarkably similar. Incision marks of surgical precision. The area around the mouth and often the sexual organs have been removed. There's a substantial degree of blood loss but not a trace of blood at the scene. Scully: How could that be? Mulder: Exsanguination. If you were to stick a needle into the jugular of any living creature, the heart itself would act as a pump.

    • Scully: Well, there is the random possibility that two people can have an unrelated likeness. Mulder: And both just happen to see their fathers exsanguinated. I'd like to cut the odds of that in Vegas.

    Notes (5)

    • This episode was originally called "Girls from Greenwich".

    • The original choice to play the young twins were the Olsen Twins, but they couldn't make an appearance due to child labor laws in the United States (the Krievins twins are Canadian).

    • The band Eve6 got their name from this episode.

    • Cindy briefly watches the cartoon Eek! the Cat which later went on to depict Mulder and Scully in cartoon form.

    • The names of the little girls, Cindy and Teena, are also the names of the wives of writers Glen Morgan and James Wong.

    Trivia (10)

    • Mistake: At the road stop when the young Eves attempt to poison Mulder and Scully, the cashier tells them that they have to have keys to the restrooms. She hands the enormous key chains, but when Scully goes to unlock the bathroom door, you can clearly see that there's no keyhole.

    • Principal setting: Greenwich, Connecticut; San Francisco, California.

    • Mulder says that Digitalis is a South American plant that can be used as a paralytic drug. This is not true. Digitalis (|Foxglove) is native to Europe, Asia and North Africa. In large doses it can be fatal, in small, it is used to regulate heart beat etc. There is no evidence of it being used to paralyse anything.

    • Teena's nurse at the social services hospital heard Teena scream, but didn't hear the door to Teena's room being kicked in.

    • Conspiracy Info: Eugenics projects were carried out in the 1950s, at the height of the Cold War, laying the groundwork for the alien clones like the Gregors, Jeremiah Smith, Kurt Crawford, and the multiple Samanthas.

    • Mulder: Their own mini-Jonestown. Mulder is referring to the town of Jonestown in Guyana that was founded by Jim Jones, the leader of the Peoples Temple Cult, for the protection of his followers against nuclear fallout in case of a nuclear attack on the US. In 1978, the inhabitants committed mass suicide.

    • Eve 6: I am her, she is me, and we are all together. This line is a reference to a lyric from the Beatles' song "I am the Walrus".
