X-Files Easter Eggs: Did You Catch These In-Jokes From Episodes 1 and 2?

The truth is out there. The wink-wink-nudge-nudge meta references are in here.

Fox’s X-Files proved that it understands and appreciates its fans by slipping some visual in-jokes — commonly referred to as Easter eggs — into its two-night premiere. And because we’re just as obsessed as the rest of you, we’ve gathered those moments from Sunday and Monday’s episodes here for your alien-loving selves to peruse at your leisure.

Familiar faces? Shout-outs to behind-the-scenes staff? One really unfortunate poster? It’s all here. (And we’ll be back next week with all the OMG YES! tidbits from Episode 3.)

Gather those eggs by clicking through the gallery below, then make sure to hit the comments with any we might’ve missed!

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    Yes, those two actors!! I remember them now that you mentioned it. I mostly remembered them from Supernatural episodes. I caught the Gilligan reference right away.

    And of course everybody should know (and love) that poster. My brother still has one hanging in his home office.

    How about the fact that the basement office still has only ONE office and only Mulder’s name plate on the door? After 23 years, poor Scully is still left out.

    Christine Willes was in another one of my all time favorite shows… Dead Like Me! She was Delores.

    The iconic poster was also seen in Mulder’s home office in the I Want to Believe movie. Exactly how many copies did he have?

    Not sure an actor playing a new part counts as an Easter egg. The show routinely cast good actors in multiple roles, especially up in Vancouver with its regular pool of talent.
