  • Trivia

    • When Deputy Wetzel is cutting the crime seal at the crack house, the wording on the seal says Los Angeles Sheriff's Department. This is incorrect. The actual name is the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

    • When Mulder is trying to break up the fight between Steve and Edy, he sits down and says "Let's all relax." During this scene, David Duchovny starts to laugh but manages to regain his composure and finish the scene.

    • When Mulder says something like "We have to find this Chantara," you can tell he starts to mess up his line and begins to laugh.

  • Quotes

    • Mulder: (To Steve and Edy) Have either of you seen anything like this? (Shows them the sketch of the werewolf)
      Edy: Ooh, no!
      Mulder: Or this? (Shows them the sketch of Freddy Krueger)
      Edy: Ooh, no! That's goin' to give me nightmares!

    • (Scully and Mulder are getting ready to drive to a crime scene, and one of the COPS camera men tries to get in the car with them)
      Scully: No, you go with someone else.

    • Scully: Oh, God. More of you?

    • Woman: Why are they filming this?
      Scully: (Smiling falsely through gritted teeth at the camera) Because the FBI have nothing to hide!

    • Wetzel: It's hard to have a fast track career in law enforcement, when everybody thinks you're nuts.
      Mulder: Tell me about it.

    • Sheriff: Sir. Sir. We got your suspect. (Sketch artist shows them a drawing of Freddy Krueger) Ah, claw monster. Boy, you know, they kill him in every movie and he just keeps coming back.

    • Mulder: What is it, Scully?
      Scully: What is it? Mulder, have you noticed that we're on television?

    • As always, Vince finds a way to get his girlfriend's name (Holly) into his episodes. In this case, the police first find Mulder and Scully on Holly Street.

  • Allusions

    • Edy: I'm ready for my close up.

      This is the well quoted line from the 1950 movie Sunset Boulevard. The actual line spoken by Norma Desmond is, "All right, Mr. DeMille, I'm ready for my close-up." and is the last line of the movie.

    • Character Names: Steve and Edy
      The names of the characters Steve and Edy in this episode are a reference to Steve Lawrence and Eydie Gorme, a husband and wife singing duo in the 60's and 70's, known popularly as just "Steve and Eydie"

    • Film reference: The Blair Witch Project
      This episode appears to be an allusion to Blair Witch, not only for being filmed with a hand held camera, but also for the scene with the camera falling to the floor, the handprints on the wall, and also because we never do get to see the "monster".
