Special Agent John Doggett
Special Agent Dana Scully
When Martin is up for bail hearing, the prosecutor shows an evidence bag with the knife that is still bloody. Evidence would never be shown like that in a court room. Also, Martin is wearing hand cuffs and a corrections orange jump suit. Unless he provided a huge security threat he would be allowed to wearing proper clothes for trial.
At the end, when the killer has picked up the knife and has Vicky against his chest with the blade pressed against her throat, her head is very high up - towards the level of the killer's heart. Yet a moment later when he is shot in the back by Doggett and the bullets go straight through his chest, Vicky is much lower down. If Doggett had shot him in the original position he would have killed Vicky to! There is also the point that in an earlier episode Mulder is eaten up because he didn't take a shot quickly enough and because it's against FBI protocol to endanger a hostage. In this case, there's not even a warning given before shots are fired, and since the killer is shot in the back, they wouldn't have known in how much danger the hostage was in here.
When Martin takes out the nanny-cam from the bear, the lens-protection is on so the camera could not have recorded anything.
Martin: The passage of time in prisons is not in a cell of brick and mortar but in one of hopes dashed and tragedies unaverted. How precious, then, the chance to go back only to discover that in facing the past you must face up to yourself... that exiting the prison of time doesn't free you from the prison of your own character... one from which there is no escape.
Scully: Mr. Wells, are you saying that you don't remember the day that your wife was murdered? I'm talking about two days ago, Monday.
Martin: No, I don't... remember it, because for me, it hasn't happened yet.
Scully: You do realize that you're not going to be able to prove this, right? I mean, if, uh... if tomorrow is really the day before today, then we won't have had this conversation.
Doggett: Oh, for crying out loud.
Scully: It means you're going to have to tell us all over again.
Doggett: Yeah, well, uh... make sure I skip that freaking meeting.
Martin: Appreciate your coming to see me. Agent Scully, I especially wanted to talk to you.
Scully: It's nice to meet you. I'm sorry it's not under better circumstances.
Martin: This is the day we meet... something is happening to me... something I need to try to explain to you, to you both. I'm moving backward in time. Every morning I wake up, it's the day before. For me, yesterday was Thursday, the day before that was Friday, only it's all new to me. Every single morning I wake up, I can only remember what's happened the following day.
Doggett: Agent Scully, would you mind taking a closer look at his injuries, maybe check his scalp?
Martin: Listen. I don't know what I experienced. But what if it was a premonition? A glimpse of the future. I mean, you do hear about these kind of things.
Scully: Yes... You do. Mr. Wells, this shooting aside is there anything else that you remember before that?
Martin: Um... I was in DC... uh... for a sentencing hearing. I was staying at the Strand Hotel like you said.
Scully: That was three days ago, Mr. Wells. Are you telling us that you don't remember anything else? Not the murder of your wife?
Scully: Mr. Wells, we understand that you had an interesting morning in court. What is it that you'd like to speak with us about?
Martin: You're John's partner?
Doggett: For god sakes, Martin. Agent Scully. You know that. You met her yesterday.
Doggett: Yeah. Yesterday. Wednesday.
Scully:Are you saying that you don't remember? What is the last thing that you do remember?
Martin: Being shot by my father-in-law.
Doggett: You're wasting our time.
This is the first time that you get a glimpse of Agent Doggett's house.
The case number at the bail hearing in the teaser is the same as the production code of the episode (8ABX03).
Robert Patrick and Joe Morton worked together on Terminator 2: Judgement Day, where Patrick played the T-1000, and Morton was the creator of the future super computer, Miles Dyson.
'Redrum' is Murder spelled backwards. Besides being the key feature of this episode it is also a reference to the Stephen King novel and Stanley Kubrick film The Shining.
