The X Files The X Files The X Files

Welcome to InsideTheX, a complete and detailed collection of transcripts for every episode of "The X Files" and "The Lone Gunmen" to have been screened on TV. Also included are transcripts of "The X Files: Fight The Future (1998)", "The X Files: I Want to Believe (2008)" and a transcript of "The Simpsons - The Springfield Files", an episode featuring the FBI's finest. Each transcript contains the full dialogue, locations, scenery and background information where appropriate.

These transcripts are the very hard work of some very important people who took the time and effort to tirelessly produce them after each episode. This project started over 10 years back on Tiny Dancer's site, and since then every episode has been accounted for by dedicated fans. The truly magnificent CarriK in particular has made this possible, contributing more than 50 transcripts, including most of Series 5 and all of Series 6, 7 and nearly all of 8. Vic Vega also deserves a mention for contributing over 35 transcripts particularly Series 1 and 2. Season 9 was transcribed by X_Follower, Intrepidly, Alexandre Doctor-X, and myself. Transcripts for The Lone Gunmen were transcribed by Libby and myself.

DVD Commentaries/notes/articles/interviews: If you want to read transcripts of the DVD episode commentaries and assorted notes and script snippets, Libby has painstakingly typed them up and they are available from The Unofficial Website for Mitch Pileggi and The X-Files. A large collection of interviews and articles can be found at EatTheCorn.


Lastly, I really enjoy feedback on the site and the transcripts, so click here to let me know where you are visiting from. So far we have had visits from over 140 countries!

Happy Reading Guys!!
