The X-Files

Pilot - S1-E1

Question: Does anyone know the actual events that this episode was based on?

Chosen answer: The title screen on the pilot episode actually said "based on documented accounts" not "actual events" which is kind of true - there are many claims of alien abduction - so technically the caption isn't false, but the episode was entirely fictional and not based on any real occurence.

Pilot - S1-E1

Question: When they're flying on the plane, Scully starts breathing deeply and looks like she's afraid of flying. Has this ever been explained later? In all the later episodes, they never say she was afraid of flying.

Chosen answer: She's afraid in this scene because the plane has encountered turbulace and is diving down. No fear of flying has ever been mentioned.

Mistakes
