Special Agent Fox Mulder
Special Agent Dana Scully
Assistant Director Kersh
Goof: Howard identifies Lana Chee as a Hopi who lives on the nearby Moapa Reservation. The Moapa Reservation is inhabited by the Moapa Paiute tribe, not the Hopi, who actually have their own reservation in northeastern Arizona.
There is another mistake in the mirror scene. For the whole mirror sequence, in which Mulder dances in front of the mirror, the reflection he sees, and the viewer sees, is that of Morris Fletcher. However, once Fletcher's wife Joann walks in, the reflection in the mirror is now Mulder's and not Fletcher's.
Goof: How did Morris know Scully's name? It could've been argued that the men in black had a file on Mulder and Scully, but it's made obvious by their questions when "Morris" gets back in the car, that they did not know who the two agents were, specifically.
Answer: Morris asked to see ID before they switched bodies so he could have easily gotten her name when they flashed their badges.
There is a noticeable mistake in the mirror scene between David Duchovny and Michael McKean. When they're bending over and shaking their asses, McKean's hand is on what would be the left leg of his underwear and he's pulling it down just a little bit while Duchovny isn't.
When Mulder (who is in the body of Morris Fletcher) tries to convince Scully that he is indeed Mulder, we see him reflected in the real Morris Fletcher's side mirror as David Duchovny and not Michael McKean. In all other reflections in mirrors and windows he appears as Michael McKean.
(Awkwardly exiting from Morris' kitchen as everyone ignores him)
Mulder: Okay! Well, uh, everybody have a good day at your various, uh.... (Looks around, no one's paying attention. Nods.) All right.
Terrence: Yo, Dad.
Mulder: Hey Terry.
Terrence: Not Terry.
Terrence: Terrence. Terry's for wusses.
Mulder: (mutters) And Terrence isn't?
Howard: It's happened again.
Mulder (as Morris): What's happened again?
Howard: Let's get out of here.
Mulder (as Morris): We got to help this man.
Howard: We got to help ourselves. Whatever caused this could come back.
Mulder (as Morris): We can't just leave him here.
Morris (As Mulder): Hey... Hey, Dana. How's it going?
Scully: Mulder, where have you been?
Morris (As Mulder):Oh, sorry, I just got a little lost on my way in.
Scully: You got lost.
Morris (As Mulder): I'm just a little, you know, little lost in my head.
Morris (As Mulder): Yeah. One of those days. Yeah.
Mulder: Milepost 134. Two miles to go.
Scully: I'm all a-tingle. So, Mulder, this supposed clandestine source who's contacted you. How do we know that he's not just another crackpot, whose encyclopedic knowledge of extraterrestrial life isn't derived exclusively from reruns of Star Trek?
Mulder: Because of where this particular crackpot works. Groom Lake. Area 51. Where the military has conducted...
Scully: ...for the past 50 years, classified experiments involving extraterrestrial technology.
Mulder: It's all our questions. The proof that we've suspected but never been able to hold in our hands. That... that proof is here.
Mulder (as Morris): How do we get the lizard out of the rock?
Howard: Who says we can?
Mulder: Ladies and gentlemen, Mr. Johny Cash.
Joanne: Morris! What about Chris?
Mulder (as Morris): Chris?
Chris: You said you'd give me an answer today.
Joanne: Her nose. You said you'd give her an answer about her nose.
Mulder (as Morris): Um . . . I think . . .
(Chris gives him a little girl look.)
Mulder (as Morris): I think she's a little young for plastic surgery don't you think?
(Chris cries again.)
Joanne: Oh, for God's sake, Morris -- a nose ring! She said she wants a nose ring!
Chris: I hate you! I wish you were dead.
Mulder (as Morris): Well, my work here is done. Have a nice day.
Mulder (as Morris): I'm Mulder. I'm really Mulder. I switched bodies, places, identities with this man Morris Fletcher the man that you think is Mulder, but he's not. Of course you don't believe me. Why was I expecting anything different? Your full name is Dana Katherine Scully. Your badge number is... Hell! I don't know your badge number. Your mother's name is Margaret. Your brother's name is Bill Jr. He's in the Navy and he hates me. Lately, for lunch, you've been having this six-ounce cup of yogurt, plain yogurt, into which you stir bee pollen because you're on a bee pollen kick even though I tell you you're a doctor and you should know better.
Scully: Look... Any of that information could have been gathered by anyone.
Mulder (as Morris): Even that yogurt thing? That is so you. That is so Scully. Well, it's good to know you haven't changed. That's somewhat comforting.
One of the signature backstage moments of the entire 6th season occurred during a particularly bleak morning at the distant Lancaster location during the filming of the two-parter. David Duchovny emerged from his trailer and said, "When is this show moving back to Los Angeles?". Within days, dozens of X-Files insiders were wearing T-Shirts emblazoned with the exact same question.
The scene in which Mulder encounters his own reflection - as Fletcher - in Morris' bedroom mirror is a near-recreation of the famous mirror scene between Groucho and Harpo Marx in the classic 1933 comedy Duck Soup. This scene was also reenacted by Harpo and Lucille Ball in a famous 1955 episode of I Love Lucy.
The scraggly desert gas station had to be built from scratch.
The character of Morris Fletcher would later appear in numerous episodes of "The Lone Gunmen", the season 6 X-Files episode "Three of a Kind" and the season 9 episode "Jump the Shark".
The man-in-black Morris Fletcher is named after Michael McKean's son, Fletcher McKean.
As noted, Dreamland is the nickname for Area 51, the Air Force base near Groom Lake, Nevada which is reputed to be the US Government's base for conducting experiments with alien technology. "Dreamland" actually stands for "Data Repository Establishment and Management Land".
Mulder: Ladies and gentleman, Mr. Johnny Cash.
Mulder says this after he opens Morris Fletcher's closet, which is filled with black suits. Legendary singer-songwriter Johnny Cash (1932-2003) was nicknamed the "Man in Black" because he usually performed wearing dark clothing. In 1971, Cash wrote a song called "Man in Black," in which he said that wearing black was an expression of mourning for people who had suffered or died, including American soldiers killed in the Vietnam War.
