Two F.B.I. Agents, Fox Mulder the believer and Dana Scully the skeptic, investigate the strange and unexplained, while hidden forces work to impede their efforts.
In one episode, Scully tells Mulder (David Duchovny) that she thinks Téa Leoni has a crush on him, to which Mulder responds, "How could Téa Leoni have a crush on me?" In real-life, Leoni and Duchovny were married.
Sometimes we must come full circle to find the truth. Why does that surprise you?
Scully: Mostly, it just makes me afraid.
Reverend Finley: Afraid?
Scully: Afraid that God is speaking... but that no one's listening.
In many episodes it is clear that the agents are not in the region of the country or the world, described in the captions or the script. This especially becomes evident when the series began filming in Southern California and the vegetation and the terrain clearly could have only been that region.
Beginning from season 03, the opening title sequence reduced its run time for the episodes dealing with Mulder and Scully's personal life.
The 'previously on The X Files' segments are missing from the DVD Season boxset releases.
