The X Files (1998) Thirty-seven thousand years ago, a deadly secret was buried in a cave in Texas. Now the secret has been unleashed. And its discovery may mean the end of all humanity. When a terrorist bomb destroys a building in Dallas, Texas, FBI Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully are drawn into a dangerous conspiracy surpassing anything they've ever encountered. With the dubious assistance of a paranoid doctor, Mulder and Scully risk their careers and their lives to hunt down a deadly virus which may be extraterrestrial in origin - and could destroy all life on earth. Their pursuit of the truth pits them against the mysterious Syndicate, powerful men who will stop at nothing to keep their secrets safe, leading the agents from a cave in Texas, to the halls of the FBI, and finally to a secret installation in Antarctica which holds the greatest secret of all.

Movie Quote(s):
  • [after shooting the driver in 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.
  • Well-Manicured Man: Trust no one, Mr. Mulder.
  • 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. [Pops a sunflower seed into his mouth] Mulder: What are we doing up here, Scully? It's hotter than hell.
  • Mulder: Maybe we should call in a bomb threat to Houston. I think it's free beer night at the Astrodome.
Movie Trivia:
  • The final scene takes place in Foum Tatouine, which is an actual place, used for filming the scenes on the planet Tatooine in Star Wars (1977) and Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi (1983).
  • In the original trailer, the shot with Mulder & Scully running from the bees was used, albeit minus the SFX bees.
  • After consuming much alcohol and finding the bar's bathroom locked, Mulder relieves himself on a movie poster for Independence Day (1996). A line in Independence Day, spoken just after the first shot of the cable station, is "Yeah, I love X-Files too. I hardly get to see it."
  • Conrad Strughold (Armin Mueller-Stahl) was named for the real Strughold, a Nazi scientist who conducted experiments on prisoners during World War II.
  • Former LAPD bomb squad officer Herb Williams and former FBI agent William O. Heaton acted as advisors for the bomb sequence - and appeared in the movie as agents in a scene with Scully.
