Notable Mentions
• Gillian Anderson’s least favorite aspect of the shoot was the sequence where Mulder and Scully are running through a field of corn stalks. As she was running behind the much taller David Duchovny, she kept getting smacked in the face by the leaves.
• Getting a bee to walk along Gillian Anderson’s shoulder was achieved by putting some pheromone in the air and gently blowing it with little fans in the direction they wanted the bee to move.
• Because of the demands of making the ongoing TV series (Season 5 was about to go into production), David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson were only available to work on the film for 75% of its shooting schedule.

Character Quotes
• I can’t. I won’t. Mulder, I’ll be a doctor, but my work is here with you now. That virus that I was exposed to, it has a cure. You held it in your hand. How many other lives can we save?
• Why did they assign me to you in the first place, Mulder? To debunk your work. To rein you in, to shut you down.
• Any thoughts as to why anybody would be growing corn in the middle of the desert?
• I saw your face, Mulder. There was a definite moment of panic.
• I don’t believe the FBI currently has an investigative unit qualified to pursue the evidence in hand.
• I have to be in Washington, D.C. in 11 hours for a hearing, the outcome of which might affect one of the biggest decisions of my life and here I am in the middle of nowhere, Texas, chasing phantom tanker trucks.
• Mulder, I can’t tell you what killed this man. I’m not sure anybody else could claim to either.
