After consuming much alcohol and finding the bar's bathroom locked, Mulder relieves himself on a movie poster for Independence Day (1996). A line in Independence Day, spoken just after the first shot of the cable station, is "Yeah, I love X-Files too. I hope I get to see it." However, the feeling wasn't mutual: Chris Carter loathed ID4 and had Mulder piss all over the film's poster to express his disdain for it. See more »
When Mulder is reading the article in the newspaper in the last Mulder/Scully scene (by the fountain) you can see that some pages of the paper are entirely blank - most noticeably, on the first shot of Mulder's face in this scene, and then again when he hands the paper to Scully. See more »
You have precious little time. What I've given you, the alien colonists don't yet know exists. The vaccine you hold is the only defense against the virus. It's introduction into an alien environment may have the power to destroy the delicate plans we have so assiduously protected for the last 50 years.

The video release has additional footage not shown in the theatrical release:
In the opening scene you now see more of the alien. In the theatrical release we see it fight off one of the cavemen, killing it, and the other caveman gets up to see it lying on the ground draining out the black blood (or what fans know as black oil). In the video release, we see it run off after it kills one of the cavemen, and when the other caveman gets up, he tracks it down and then kills it using the broken end of his torch.
In the scene with Mulder talking to the Well Manicured Man in the car, he reveals to Mulder that Samantha, Mulder's sister, was abducted by aliens at the request of her father, William Mulder, so she could be part of the colonization project, thus ensuring her survival in the colonization of Earth by the visitors. Also revealed is that when plans went awry, Mulder was intended, by his father, to seek the truth and reveal what had been done.
There is also an added scene in the video release with Mulder running down the street after the hospital scene.
I've met a LOT of people who whine that this is just a two-hour episode with a big budget. I don't see how that's a complaint. I mean, if one of the best-written, best-directed, most atmospheric shows on television makes a movie-length episode that can stand on its own...what's the problem? That still makes it more intelligent than 90% of the movies put out this summer.
