* When ''Series/TheAdventuresOfBriscoCountyJr'' was cancelled, some of the crew ended up getting jobs on this show. Flash forward a few years to "Terms of Endearment" and its big guest star, Creator/BruceCampbell. In his book, ''If Chins Could Kill: Confessions of a B Movie Actor'', Campbell described the experience as like "coming home."

* Mulder hallucinating hanging out a Texan bar with the Lone Gunmen (and Skinner) while on a magic mushroom trip in "Babylon". If you want to believe the MaybeMagicMaybeMundane aspects of the episode, it could even be seen as the Gunmen's ghosts using Mulder's expanded consciousness to have a good time with their friend.

* The tribute to Kim Manners in the same episode. During the scene between Mulder and Guy in the cemetery, one of the tombstones bears the X-Files director's name. Mulder even puts some flowers on it.

* In "Mulder and Scully Meet The WereMonster", Mulder is going through a mid-life crisis of faith that all his monster-hunting have turned out to be fakes or easily provable mundane acts. At the end of the episode, when he shakes hand goodbye with Guy - a hapless lizard monster cursed with a human bite - Mulder watches Guy's transformation back to lizard and has his faith restored.

* The fact that both Scully and Mulder are coping over the loss of their son William to adoption, for the sake of protecting the child from what they fear could happen to him. While it borders on TearJerker, they're both aware this was the only way they could ensure he'd be safe.

* Kumail Nanjiani getting cast in the revival. It could almost be seen as a thank you for all the work his ''X-Files Files'' podcast did to raise the profile of the show while it was off the air. Bonus points for his role being in "Mulder and Scully Meet the Were-Monster", the Darin Morgan-penned episode. Fans of the podcast will know the Darin Morgan episodes tend to be Kumail's favourites.

** Also from that episode, Frohike comes by Scully's apartment to offer condolences over Mulder's supposed death. He can tell that his presence has taken her aback (due in part to him being partially drunk, and holding a near-empty bottle in one hand), and apologizes before attempting to leave. Scully then invites him inside, where Frohike reminisces that Mulder really was one of the better people to be around.

* Mulder and Scully having an impromptu slow-dance at the very end of the "The Post-Modern Prometheus". That episode itself was something of a Moment of Awesome for the season or series which earned it seven Emmy nominations and a parade of rave reviews enhances the good feeling. Creator/DavidDuchovny would go on to say that whatever came after, for him, that one moment would always remain his favorite.

* Something implied but never directly touched upon during Scully's abduction arc is in the interesting friendship Maggie and Mulder form during this time; it's implied that they supported each other through it. Between "Acension" and "One Breath" Maggie goes from calling him "Agent Mulder" to "Fox", which almost no one calls him. He is there when Maggie views the headstone she ordered for Dana, and all through the horrible news in "One Breath". She even tells Mulder that he is welcome to sit with her and Melissa after they take Scully off of life support. She also calls him from the hospital when she's found, and either she or Melissa called him later in the episode to tell him that she had come out of her coma. This connection comes up a couple more times in the series, most notably in the episode "Wetwired".
