Gillian Anderson: I don’t have to stand on a box. Sometimes when we’re in a situation walking side by side, like up to a door to pull out our badges and say we’re from the FBI, I have to step up onto something so that we’re on the same level. I mean, I don’t walk on boxes or have boxes attached to my feet. It’s funny: Sometimes I forget I’m on the box. Like, I’ll have this very serious moment in a very serious scene and I’ll turn to the camera and fall right off the box.
“Agent Mulder – I’m standing out here in the mud and rain, looking at two empty coffins, in a cemetery where we dug up someone – something – I can’t explain… listening to a wacked-out kid tell me she’s going to die because she has ‘the marks.’ And at this point, it wouldn’t surprise me if we both started howling at the moon.”
Dana Scully, in the original script for “The X-Files” pilot
