5×11 – Kill Switch

Mulder’s FBI profile hacked into by rogue AI. My heart goes out to anyone trying to make sense of the X-Files timeline here, as the dates for when Mulder graduated from Oxford and attended Quantico contradict each other IN THE VERY SAME SHOT.

6×05 – Dreamland II

Mulder got his BA in Experimental Psychology from Oxford on July 31, 1986.

Some of Mulder’s awards, presumably from the office, pre-fire.

Mulder’s FBI profile as of December 12, 1998 when he was on General Assignment and reporting to Kersh. We can see here that Teena Mulder’s maiden name was Kuipers. The badge number, phone number, and address are a little cut off in this shot, but they are:

Badge #: JTT047101111
Address:  2630 Hegal Place, Apt. 42, Alexandria, VA 23242
Phone: (202)555-9355

Tiger Woods 99 PGA Golf Tour. Pretty sure this is the only time we ever see any kind of game being played on Mulder’s computer, though it’s unclear if it was Mulder or Morris Fletcher who actually installed it. (Probably Morris.)

6×09 – Tithonus

Scully’s department transfer paperwork from 1994. Scully was attending med school at the University of Maryland when she was recruited by the FBI.

Fowley’s FBI profile from when Scully and the Lone Gunmen try to dig up more information on her background.

7×11 – Closure

Paperwork from the Treasury Department’s investigation into Samantha’s disappearance. (Note the state abbreviation here is wrong; it should be MA, not MD. The zip code does put it in the correct city and state, however.)

The document officially calling off the search for Samantha when Scully finds the burnt remains of the original in Teena’s trash can, showing that CGB Spender had signed off on it. The corner was folded in on the photocopy on file, obscuring this information.

11×07 – Rm9sbG93ZXJz

So many screens! Let’s get ready to check out the digital lives of Mulder and Scully. (I won’t be including ALL of the screens in this episode, because damn, that’s a lot of screens.)

Look, I know the sushi menu isn’t the most interesting thing in the episode, but I really like sushi, and I really like that Mulder and Scully like sushi. Also, Mulder’s touchscreen signature for his credit card.

The parking ticket that caused much timeline confusion, though the date is actually just a reference to writer Kristen Cloke and director Glen Morgan’s 20th wedding anniversary. (Kristen mentioned on Twitter that the date was not in the script, and she believes it was just a cute Easter egg put in by the art department.) The license plate number does match the one on his car in the episode, though.

Mulder’s laptop makes a reappearance, as well. He’s been using the same laptop since My Struggle, and it appears in a few episodes from Seasons 10 and 11.

Mulder’s credit card login and online statement. Obviously the credit card statement wasn’t meant to be looked at too closely. The amount charged at the sushi place doesn’t match what we saw on the payment screen in the restaurant. And how the hell do you get $194.35 out of an ATM?! Nice credit limit, though, Mulder.

[Screenshots] Home Décor (Evolving Post)

A place where we can admire the evolving state of Mulder and Scully’s (and friends’) home furnishings over the years.  Just a sampling of images to start, but this post will continue to be updated as time allows.

1×01 – Deep Throat

A rare glimpse into Mulder’s kitchen.  It looks like he’s cooking a can of Campbell’s Soup.

1x01_deepthroat_mulderskitchen01

 

1×12 – Beyond the Sea

And here’s Scully’s kitchen as she packs up some leftovers after dinner with her parents.

1x12_beyondthesea_scullykitchen01

 

And a little of Scully’s Christmas decorating in the background here.

1x12_beyondthesea_scullykitchen02

1×15 – Young at Heart

Several shots of Scully’s apartment in this episode.  Here she patrols the premises on high alert.

01x15_youngatheart_scullyapartment01

01x15_youngatheart_scullyapartment02

I think we all need to talk about this terrifying cat thing on Scully’s wall.

01x15_youngatheart_scullyapartment_terrifyingcatthing

It’s almost like people sitting down having a normal conversation… about weird salamander hands.

01x15_youngatheart_scullyapartment03

And a nice shot of her kitchen in the morning.

01x15_youngatheart_scullyapartment04

 

4×20 – Small Potatoes

Scully’s kitchen in Small Potatoes.

4x20_smallpotatoes_scullykitchen01

7×07 – Orison

We get to see a lot of Scully’s apartment in Orison and since there’s some running from room-to-room, it may be a good episode to get a better understanding of the layout (at least as it stands in Season 7).

A couple nice shots of Scully’s apartment, but it’s really Mulder’s bedroom that steals the show here.

10×05 – Founder’s Mutation

Our first look at Scully’s new living quarters after moving out of the Unremarkable House.  Is it an apartment?  A house?  A rented out hotel room?  It’s not really clear, as we really only see a bedroom with a desk, the drawer of which contains a single photo of William and no sign of any other lived-in clutter.  There’s also a floor lamp somewhere to the left.

10x05_foundersmutation_scully01

The episode’s promo picture from this scene actually provides a slightly better view of the overall layout compared to the tighter shots featured in the final episode.

 

FoundersMutation_promo_Scully_bedroom

 

10×04 – Babylon

A brief shot of Scully’s bedroom from Babylon shows the room in some cooler tones with some potentially re-arranged furniture (or whatever that is in the foreground).  What is that white thing on the bed in both episodes?  Could it be Scully’s silky pajamas?

10x04_babylon_scully01

 

11×07 – Rm9sbG93ZXJz

Rm9sbG9ZXJz gives us the only look at Scully’s residence in Season 11, but we get to see quite a bit of it. Also plenty of great interior and exterior shots of the Unremarkable House on top of that.

Nice wide shot of the ground floor from this angle.

[Screenshots] The Glasses Master Post (Evolving Post)

Because glasses are sexy.  A screenshot gallery featuring the times Mulder and Scully donned corrective lenses.  Post will be updated as I make my way back through the series.

1×79 – Pilot

The first episode starts us off with a wealth of glasses shots featuring both of our favorite agents.

When we meet Mulder for the first time, he’s wearing glasses.

1x00_pilot_mulderglasses01

 

Scully wears glasses in the Pilot on multiple occasions.

Like reading on the plane.

1x00_pilot_scullyglasses01_600

And doing an autopsy.

1x00_pilot_scullyglasses02

And typing on her laptop before Mulder drops by.

1x00_pilot_scullyglasses03
And typing on her laptop again before the power goes out.

1x00_pilot_scullyglasses04

 

I’m not sure if any other episode in the entire series has so much hot glasses action.

 

1×01 – Deep Throat

Scully looks so sophisticated in her glasses as she waits for Mulder at the beginning of Deep Throat.

01x01_deepthroat_scullyglasses01

 

Who the fuck is this weirdo?

01x01_deepthroat_scullyglasses02

1×21 – Born Again

While looking through documents, Scully is crushed beneath the weight of her own shoulder pads.  And is also wearing glasses.

2×03 – Blood

Scully’s glasses make an appearance in two different scenes.

2x03_blood_glasses01

2x03_blood_glasses02

 

2×07 – 3

The saddest Scully glasses.  ;_;  Still, it says something about the prominence of Scully’s glasses in the early days that Mulder would hold onto them along with her badge and her cross.

3×09 – Nisei

Mulder glasses make a nice little appearance in Nisei.

nesei03_mulderglasses

4×20 – Small Potatoes

Casual Friday night scientific research at home Scully glasses.

7×01 – The Sixth Extinction

Scully glasses are few and far between now, but this episode gives them a lot of screentime.  Scully glasses in Africa!  Now I need to go back and screencap all of the glasses in between!

11×08 – Nothing Lasts Forever

The series’ penultimate episode sees the triumphant return of the long lost Mulder glasses!! Mulder’s new bifocals, er… progressive lenses… are featured prominently in a few different scenes.

[Screenshots] Screenshot Comparison – Conduit

Image quality comparison! Samples for this set include Netflix (US, 2014), the original Season 1 DVD release (Region 1), and the HD remaster that aired on ZMAXX in Germany. It’s possible that the image quality on Netflix can vary with connection speed. I’m not sure how the ZMAXX version was captured, so I don’t know how that might affect the quality. I’m also not sure if there were any differences (such as in compression) between the original Season 1 DVD box set released in 2000 and any later printings. Updated to include capture from 2015 Blu-ray release.
