X-Files Easter Egg - Birthdays

This is probably pretty well known by know, but it's entertaining to watch for none-the-less. While watching an episode of TXF, be on the look out for the numbers 1121 and 1013. They can be anywhere (clocks, room numbers, case files, etc.) 1121 is the birthday of Chris Carter's wife, and 1013 is his own, hence 1013 Productions. There are also many other numbers that appear like that throughout the series, but at the moment I can't recall their specifics. Many websites will have a list of these if you're interested in finding out more.

In the episode where Mulder finds a bunch of abductee files in an abandoned West Virginia coal mine, he finds a folder with his name on it and his birthdate is 10/13/61. Which, of course, is a Friday the 13th.

It wasn't listed in her egg but there are a lot of number/birthdays that are used...one other popular one is 925 which is Gillian Anderson's daughter, Piper Maru's birthday. Just wanted it to be known.....even though most know it!

Re the comment on the number-plate GAT-123. I have seen this in two other movies (Beverley Hills Cop 1 or 2 on a sports car, and on another I don't remember ). I think it is a generic number plate the film studio uses in case the car isn't registered, or the owner wants to remain anonymous from those people who obtain registration details from the number to steal the car. It is like when every telephone number on a movie starts 555-xxxx - it is so people don't harass the owner of the real telephone number (and it really does happen!)

To X-Phile: No duh. She already said it was well known at the beginning of her egg.

Last night I was watching the X-files, and there was this taxi at the end. The (i guess ID) number of the taxi was 4613. Now, I had just been reading through these different eeggs on the X-Files, so I was watching for the number 1013. 4+6=10. 4613=1013! Also, the lady who was in the taxi looked at her watch earlier in the show, and the time was 10:13. nifty...

While it's true that many X-File fans know this, the casual veiwer doesn't. I would still consider it an Easter Egg, regardless of how many people know it's there or not. It's similar to Alfred Hitchcock appearing in most of his films. Everyone knows he did it, but it's still fun to watch for him.

It's both, which is why it's so odd.

I read the number 1111471 is a nonsense. They choose it because we x-philes are are always looking for some reason in the numbers. ^_^

10/13/56 is indeed Chris Carter's birthday and 11/21/48 is his wife's. Nothing to do with Roswell at all. As far as the 1111471 goes, it could have a meaning that was not leaked or could just be a fun way to get back at us for looking for eeggs everywhere ;) but I don't think anyone can claim to know about Chris Carter's intention but him. Besides, a lot of the inside jokes were made by the crew and not Carter himself so it could have a meaning to one of them we know nothing about. Finally, X-Phile1220, you ARE mistaken because 9/25 is indeed Gillian's daughter's birthday and not Gilligan's who was born in February.

Actually, 1013 means 10:13 pm, the time that the report of the Roswell, NM incident came over the radio.

The number 1111471 also appears in a lot of places like ID tags, file numbers, and--if anyone remembers the episode where there is a bomb on a train--passwords to deactivate bombs. I have NO idea what it means, though.

I've seen "GAT-123" on several license plates on the cars in some episodes. Any idea what this means, if anything ???

I think you should leave the number crap alone. Mostly there is no significance what-so-ever. Oh yeah, if you have seen this before 0,1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21,34,45,.... 42 isn't there, either is 1013, but if you take the 4th term(2) and the 2nd term(1), that makes terms 4 and 2, (42), and you multiply the terms (2 1) by two(the number of terms) you get 42, WOW!! You can get any number out of anything.

OKee....first off, the fact that its the time of Roswell really has nothing to do with it...and if i'm not mistaken, 9/25 is Vince Gilligan's Birthday, NOT Piper Maru's. As far as the number 1111471 goes (Mulder's badge number in F. Emasculata and the code for the train in 731) goes, Chris Carter meant it to have ZERO meaning whatsoever! :o)
