* CallBack: There's a reference to the scene from [[Recap/TheXFilesS01E21Tooms "Tooms"]] where Mulder jokes to Scully "if there's iced tea in that bag, could be love," but that scene ends with her revealing she got him a root beer. This episode, Scully has a subtle [[spoiler:LoveEpiphany]] here, and makes Mulder tea.

* [[spoiler:LoveEpiphany: HugeGuyTinyGirl: The show came up with the ScullyBox because David Duchovny is almost a foot taller than Gillian Anderson. In the few scenes that were shot without the box (or Scully in very high heels), Anderson barely reaches Duchovny's shoulder. "all things" included a funny nod to their height difference as they both sit with their feet propped up on a coffee table. Hers barely reach the middle and his are almost hanging off the end.

* OldFlameFizzle: Scully and Daniel Waterston, though it wasn't mutual. He remained very much in love with her through the end of the episode, while she realized that over a decade had passed since she was a medical student seduced by her (very married) professor, and that she likes her life and who she is now. This realization also [[spoiler:led to the start of Mulder and Scully's romantic/sexual relationship]].

* RelationshipUpgrade: The show was never explicit about when it happened, but the leading candidate is this episode, which features Scully evaluating her past choices about life and relationships, leading up to a scene where she's getting dressed in Mulder's bathroom while he's asleep in bed, apparently naked.
