Carter on Anderson's pilot audition:
"Gillian looked like a street urchin but had a seriousness and gravity about her."
Anderson on her on-screen chemistry with Duchovny:
"It was always there, through months of winter and rain, through times of enjoying each other and not necessarily enjoying each other so much."
Duchovny on Mulder's odd tics:
"Mulder's porn habit came from [writers Glen] Morgan and [James] Wong. The sunflower seeds came from Chris. We did less sunflower eating as the years when on. It's hard to act with sunflower seeds."
Wong on the power of viewer input:
"I remember have a show air, then going online and interacting with fans. They inspired us. For instance, people were hating Scully because she didn't believe anything Mulder said. That caused Glen and I to write 'Beyond the Sea,' in which they switched roles."
Anderson on Scully's balls:
"I remember thinking, 'I'm not sure if I have the balls to pretend that I have the same balls as her.'"
Carter on how he wanted to use Anderson's real-life pregnancy on the show:
"My first impulse was 'Let's make it an alien baby.'"
Carter on the show's raison d'etre:
"[The] show was really about the search for God."
