A lot of actors who appeared in this film have appeared throughout popular sci-fi/fantasy shows:
T.W. King - FBI Agent on Roof - Andy Treadeau in Charmed.
Gary Grubbs - Fire Captain - Roger Burkle in Angel (and a past X-Files episode).
Steve Rankin - Field Agent - Tara McClay's Father in Buffy The Vampire Slayer.
Lucas Black - Stevie - Caleb in American Gothic. One of Stevie friends in the film was played by Christopher Fennell, who also played Caleb's best friend Boone in American Gothic.
Terry O'Quinn - Darius Michaud - John Locke in Lost. Terry O'Quinn is also famous for playing Peter Watts in Millennium, another Chris Carter-created TV show. Although Millennium was later proven to exist in the same universe as X-Files following a the season 7 crossover episode 'Millennium', the character he plays here is entirely separate.
Scully's exact address is:
107 E. Cordova St. Apt. 35
Georgetown, VA 24026
Mulder: You told me you had answers!
Kurtzweil: Yes, but I don't have them all.
(After shooting the driver the head)
Well-Manicured Man: Get out of the car.
Mulder: (expecting to be next) Why? The upholstery is already ruined.
Well-Manicured Man: Your aliens, Agent Mulder, your little green men arrived here millions of years ago.
Bronschweig: (On the phone) It's Bronschweig. Sir, the impossible scenario we never planned for? Well, we better come up with a plan.
Mulder: You know, one is the loneliest number.
Skinner: Agent Mulder, you and I both know that if it looks bad, it's bad for the FBI. Blame has to be assigned somewhere.
Scully: I saw your face Mulder. There was a definite moment of panic.
Mulder: You've never seen me panic. When I panic, I make this face.
Bronschweig: So much for little green men.
Strughold: He is but one man. One man alone cannot fight the future.
Scully: (after tricking Mulder into the door being locked) I had you.
Mulder: No, you didn't.
Scully: Oh, yeah. I had you big time.
Mulder: (To Scully) Whaddya want? Coke, Pepsi, saline IV?
Cigarette Smoking Man: Everybody down below. We may have a security breach. If you're not armed, arm yourselves.
Mulder: What are we doing up here, Scully? It's hotter than hell.
Scully: Here I am in the middle of nowhere, Texas, chasing phantom tanker trucks.
Scully: Are you drunk, Mulder?
Mulder: I was until about 20 minutes ago.
Scully: Was that before or after you decided to come here?
Langly: What can we do?
Mulder: You can strip Byers naked.
Mulder: I need your clothes.
(Mulder wakes up and sees that he is in the hospital)
Mulder: What am I doing here?
Byers: The bullet grazed your brow and glaced off your temporal plate.
Langley: Three centimeters to the left and we'd all be playing harps right now.
Fox Mulder (on the phone, looking at the bomb): Scully, you know that face I just showed you? I'm making it again.
Scully: Any thoughts as to why anybody would be growing corn in the middle of the desert?
Mulder: Those could be giant Jiffy-Pop poppers.
Mulder: Five years together Scully, how many times I been wrong? Never. Not driving, anyway.
Mulder: I owe you everything, and Scully, you owe me nothing.
Scully: I need this building evacuated and cleared out in ten minutes. I need you to get on the phone and tell the fire department to block off the city center in a one mile radius around the building. Don't think! Just pick up the phone and make it happen!
Mulder: Whatever happened to playing a hunch, Scully? The element of surprise, random acts of unpredictability? If we fail to anticipate the unforeseen or expect the unexpected in a universe of infinite possibilities, we may find ourselves at the mercy of anyone or anything that cannot be programmed, categorized or easily referenced.
Mulder: Maybe we should call in a bomb threat to Houston. I think it's free beer night at the Astrodome.
Mulder: Awww, I woke you... Did I wake you?
Mulder: Why not? It's three in the morning...
Scully: (After regaining consciousness, whispering in Mulder's ear) I had you big time.
Well-Manicured Man: Trust no one, Mr. Mulder.
Mulder: (to Byers, Langly and Frohike) Oh my God. Cowardly Lion. Scarecrow. Toto!
Scully: Why did they assign me to you in the first place, Mulder? To debunk your work, to rein you in, to shut you down.
Mulder: But you saved me! As difficult and as frustrating as it's been sometimes, your goddamned strict rationalism and science have saved me a thousand times over! You've kept me honest, you've made me a whole person. I owe you everything, Scully, and you owe me nothing. I don't know if I wanna do this alone. I don't even know if I can and if I quit now, they win.
Scully: Well, we're FBI Agents.
Kid: You're not FBI Agents.
Mulder: How do you know?
Kid: Cause ya'll look like door-to-door salesmen.
Well-Manicured Man: Kill Mulder, we take the risk of turning one man's quest into a crusade.
Strughold: Then you must take away what he holds most valuable. That with which he can't live without.
Mulder: A plague?
Kurtzweil: The plague to end all plagues, Agent Mulder. A silent weapon for a quiet war. The sytematic release of an indiscriminant organism for which the men who will bring it on still have no cure! They've been working on this for fifty years! While the rest of the world have been fighting gooks and commies, these men have been secretly negotiating a planned armageddon!
Mulder: Negotiating with whom?
Kutzweil: I think you know. The timetable has been set. It will happen on a holiday, when people are away from their homes. The president will declare a state of emergency, at which time all government, all federal agencies, will come under the power of the Federal Emergency Management Agency. FEMA, the secret government.
Mulder: And they call me paranoid.
Detective: (about Dr. Kurtzweil) You looking for him for some other reason?
Mulder: Yeah, I had an appointment for a pelvic examination.
Mulder: I'm the key figure in an on-going government charade, the plot to conceal the truth about the existence of extraterrestrials. It's a global conspiracy, actually, with key players in the highest levels of power, that reaches down into the lives of every man, woman, and child on this planet. So, of course, no one believes me. I'm an annoyance to my superiors, a joke to my peers. They call me Spooky. Spooky Mulder, whose sister was abducted by aliens when he was just a kid and who now chases after little green men with a badge and a gun, shouting to the heavens or to anyone who will listen that the fix is in, that the sky is falling and when it hits it's gonna be the shit-storm of all time.
Mulder: Whatever you told them in there, Scully, you don't have to protect me.
Scully: All I told them was the truth.
Mulder: They're trying to divide us on this and we can't let them.
Scully: Mulder, they have divided us. They're splitting us up.
Several actors who have appeared in previous and/or future episodes of the show guest starred in the feature movie: Terry O'Quinn (Aubrey, Trust No1) Steve Rankin (Orison), Gary Grubbs (Our Town) and Jason Beghe (Darkness Falls).
When Mulder is in the alleyway by the bar, there's a poster of the film "Independence Day" nearby. Chris Carter hated the film and deliberately wanted Mulder to relieve himself by it.
Exterior shots of the Well-Manicured Man's residence in London were shot at a house in Pasadena that was used as the exterior location of the Wayne Manor in the "Batman" television series.
Although there were nearly 300,000 bees used during the shooting of the dome scene, only a handful of crew members were stung.
When the crew was shooting the cornfield scenes, a teenager had managed to get past security and was hiding inside the cornfield. He was able to videotape the actors in the field and the huge white domes. He sold the footage to a local news station and thus revealed some of the key locations for the X-Files movie nearly a year before the movie was due to hit the big screen.
Of the three young actors playing Stevie's friends, only one had any previous acting experience.
When Gillian Anderson was filming the rooftop scene, she had an allergic reaction to the sunscreen used by the make-up department to simulate sweat.
During the first week of principal photography, the second-unit crew was stranded for 2 days on a glacier near Vancouver as bad weather conditions prevented the helicopter, which had taken them up there, to come and pick them up. They spent the night in the ice station set while the temperature outside dropped down to the low twenties.
The movie had a budget of just under $60 million.
The movie was shot during the hiatus between the the fourth and fifth season of "The X-Files".
In order to prevent the crew from making copies of the script and posting it on the Internet, the script was printed on red paper with the name of the owner placed diagonally over each page.
To protect the secrecy surrounding the movie, the project was given the 'code' title "Blackwood" during its production. However, the online X-Philes community quickly found out about the code title and started speculating about its possible meaning. Some ideas were even more out there than others as theories alluding to Edgar Allen Poe and MTV VJ Nina Blackwood were posted on the Internet. They were all wrong however, as "Blackwood" only refers to a fictional town in Dallas where some of the story is set.
The movie only had a preproduction period of 10 weeks. This is extremely short as a normal feature film of this scale would prep from eight months to a year.
