* Mulder in "Chinga" is supposedly watching a tape of the "World's Deadliest Swarms", though the moaning noises and the viewer knowing his favorite form of entertainment would suggest otherwise.
** There are a ''lot'' of hints throughout the series that Mulder loves adult entertainment. This little exchange in "Excelsis Dei", for example:
--->'''Scully:''' Good morning.\\
'''Mulder:''' ''(Slightly panicked)'' Whatever tape you found in that VCR, it isn't mine.\\

* To start, there's "Home", one of the most infamous episodes of the whole show, and the only one that was never shown on Fox again for several years after its premiere (it can now be seen on DVD and streaming). A {{Mundanger}} that starts with an inbred family burying a hideously deformed baby outside their farmhouse and gets worse from then on, it's an episode that would likely push an R-rating as a film. The rest of the story features moments like a family being beaten to death with baseball bats, impromptu death traps, and the reveal that [[spoiler: the Peacock family sons keep their limbless mother under the bed and try to impregnate her--in fact, the eldest brother is the father of the other two, and [[BizarreHumanBiology all three]] are the father of the dead baby.]] How it got past the censors with just a viewer discretion warning is still a mystery worthy of a Mulder and Scully investigation.
