We all want to believe that our faith will be justified, that our quest will meet a redemptive end. As he sits in the office, throwing pencils not at the ceiling but at the I Want To Believe poster, Scully arrives, and Mulder – with David Duchovny.
Frank Spotnitz said that "In terms of making of the movie, we've brought together as many people as we can, not just from The X-Files but from all the shows that we did here in Vancouver — Harsh RealmMillennium and The Lone Gunmen — and our crew is populated with all these faces that we'd worked with, over the past fifteen years. And there's even some people from the L. The exterior of Monica Bannan's house was actually filmed in Pemberton, British Columbia, Canadaa location that Spotnitz found to be beautiful but extremely cold.
Although the location is shown in exterior shots incorporated into the scene in which Fox Mulder DuchovnyWhitney Amanda PeetDrummy Alvin "Xzibit" Joinerand Father Joe Billy Connolly drove to the missing agent's home, the same scene also includes footage of the actors that was filmed on a stage, using a rear projection to show the exterior from inside the car. The latter method was used for all the shots in which any of the travelers appear. Key scenes were also filmed in Riverlands.
The set was an old roller rink or at least sounded like one, as it was very noisy. During filming, Carter placed a carrot juice bottle on the table of the set, having just finished the drink, as he thought it would be "a nice sort of Mulder touch.
One of the pictures on the wall of Mulder's office was by Douglas Couplandwho was featured in the real Monica Reyes' gallery and had written a book Carter liked which was called Hey Nostradamus! Snow that can be seen outside the dorms was actually fake snow that was imported by the crew and fabricated by the film's Special Effects Department. Bill Roe and Mark Freeborn worked together to create a creepy green glow on the location using green lights.
The production crew also created their own factory smoke for chimneys in the background, as Carter came to the opinion that the smoking chimneys made the location look like London. The interior of Joe's apartment was another set and was exactly like the real apartment except that it was slightly bigger. A trans-light was incorporated into the set to resemble daylight visible through a window of the apartment.
The set also had a porch that was used for some shots in the scene where Mulder and Scully were outside the apartment. Title[ edit ] The code name Done One was used as the film's working title during filming, with location signs labeled as "Done One Productions. I Want to Believe.

Carter referred to the title as a "natural title", saying that it pertained to "a story that involves the difficulties in mediating faith and science. This title is a popular phrase among X-Files fans. It is featured on the UFO poster above Mulder's desk. I Want to Believe: InCarter called Mark Snowwho by that time lived in LondonUnited Kingdom and said he wanted him to return for another film.
Snow was positive to the idea, but filming got bogged down by contract issues between Fox and Carter. When Mulder questions him about his visions, Joe reveals that, in his "mind's eye", he sees the female victim being assaulted and putting up a fight, hears the noise of dogs barking and has the feeling that the victim is still alive.
The X-Files: I Want to Believe
Scully makes it clear, during this questioning, that she detests Father Joe, doubting both the validity of his prayers and his claims of paranormal ability, before rushing outside in frustration. Mulder approaches her as she leans over a balcony outside, startling her, and they discuss Father Joe, with Scully apologizing for her conduct — even though Mulder praises her actions — and further explaining her doubts.
Mulder reveals that he is about to accompany Whitney, Drummy and Father Joe on a journey to determine the former priest's psychic capabilities, but — rather than join them, as Mulder suggests — Scully instead leaves. As the four participators of the investigation travel in their FBI car, Mulder further reveals his identity to Father Joe, who learns of Mulder's previous assignment on the X-files as well as the abduction of his sister by aliensa long time ago, and realizes that she is now dead.
The team visit a house similar to Agent Bannan's but, despite Joe originally claiming that the missing agent was taken and attacked there, he later apparently senses it is not the same building involved in the crime and crosses the short distance to the actual building. As Agent Drummy follows Father Joe away to inspect the surrounding area, ASAC Whitney explains to Mulder her skepticism regarding the supposed psychic and tells Mulder that her decision to include him in their search effort was unpopular at the FBI, but that she needs the insights he gained by investigating other psychics, work that — according to Whitney — impressed her.
Father Joe cries tears of blood. Moments later, Father Joe falls to his knees in the snow and apparently has a psychic vision of Agent Bannan's abduction, but the demonstration is met with skepticism from Agent Drummy and culminates in the former priest crying tears of blood. Meanwhile, in Our Lady of Sorrows Hospital, Scully speaks with Christian in his ward but his eagerness to leave causes her to realize he has been scared by the sight of Father Ybarra, who stands in a corridor outside.
Advising the boy not to be afraid, Scully vacates the room to meet with Father Ybarra and passionately discusses Christian with him, arguing that the boy's test results are not in his purview. He refutes this and, even after he hands her a set of the test results upon her request for them, he states that there are better facilities available for Christian, as the hospital will not be able to heal the boy.
When a nearby accidental clatter distracts Father Ybarra, Scully hurries away from him. She enters her office and sits at her desk where she opens the folder of test results and starts to cry but, noticing a colleague looking across at her, she composes herself, taking another file and a packet of tissues from her desk drawers as her colleague retreats from the room.
Scully is left alone, staring sorrowfully down at the files in front of her. In MacLaren Natatoriumthe man who chased and caught Agent Bannan stalks a swimmer, Cheryl Cunninghamwatching her from the hidden depths of the water. The woman later exits the building and, as she walks to her car, the engine of a nearby snowplow roars, making her jump, but the vehicle soon drives away. While later driving along an icy side road, she encounters the snowplow again and tries to overtake it but the truck, driven by her stalker from the pool, pushes her car off the road, causing her to crash, relatively unharmed, into a hay bale in a snow-covered field.
The dangerous driver of a snowplow peers through the window of Cheryl Cunningham 's car at her, moments before he abducts her. The man stops and reverses his snowplow on the road, then walks over to her car where, even though she is at first under the false impression that he has come to her rescue, he breaks her window, while she is struggling to unbuckle her seatbelt, before causing her to lose consciousness and continuing to abduct her.
Part Two Edit Mulder and Scully talk, whilst in bed together. In their home, Mulder and Scully are lying together in bed but Scully is having difficulty sleeping so she talks to Mulder about the issue troubling her, telling him about Christian and the boy's predicament for the first time. She questions Godregarding the boy, and wonders whether a strong connection she feels to Christian is due to the loss of their son, Williambut Mulder dismisses this possibility.
After he persuades her to go to sleep, the couple kiss but Scully humorously complains he has a scratchy beard and, before she begins to completely relax, she remembers to tell him about her discovery that, weirdly, traces of an animal tranquilizer had been discovered in the tissue of the severed arm, news that now keeps Mulder awake. Within moments, he is on his feet and moves to the bathroom, followed there by Scully.
He prepares to shave himself while pondering the evidence, recalling that Father Joe mentioned he heard the noise of dogs barking and cried tears of blood. Even though it is late at night, Scully answers a call from ASAC Whitney, who is a passenger in a car with Agent Drummy, driving, as well as Father Joe, and tells Scully that the FBI group are following a new lead provided to them by the former priest.
Doubting Father Joe's repetitive descriptions of his own supposed visions, Drummy convinces ASAC Whitney to allow him permission to dismiss the tired searchers. Mulder turns to Father Joe, who claims he now sees the face of an anonymous person whose eyes stare out of a surface like through dirty glass. When Father Joe starts to pensively walk away, heading for a nearby tree line, Mulder asks Scully what Joe's description means, but she ignores the question, instead accusing Mulder of still, after years, looking for his sister and urging him to finally accept that his sister is beyond saving.

In an attempt to ignore her, Mulder calls the departing FBI team back and they trudge after Father Joe, following him towards the tree line and then to a clearing in the forest, where he and Mulder begin to dig. While the manual excavation continues, resulting in the discovery of a block of solid ice that is buried in the snow and contains at least one body of a deceased woman staring out of the dirty glass of the ice, the team are unaware that one of the abductors, the snowplow driver, is in the vicinity as he maneuvers his truck along a forest track, stops the vehicle — knocking over a sign that reads "no hunting" — and takes a bag that drips blood from the back of the truck before he walks, hauling the bag, to the edge of a cliff, overlooking the team.
He seems concerned, as he gazes down at the search effort, but moves away again.Mulder & Scully - s11e03 - Bed Scene
As the FBI team disperses below the cliff and agents hurry to find equipment that will enable them to exhume the block of ice, Scully watches in concern as Mulder walks out of the clearing but she whirls in alarm to face Father Joe, who is standing behind her and tells her not to give up.
The snowplow driver steers his truck to a metal gate surrounding a complex where dogs are kept in cages and Cheryl Cunningham has been secured in a wooden box with virtually nothing more than a small slit, out of which she peers. She screams with desperate appeals for release and, when two Russian men dressed in white surgical garb crouch down next to her box, she urges them to help her but they soon move out of sight. Her kennel is transported through the complex, while she demands to know where she is and sees the snowplow driver talking to two other people dressed in surgical attire.
An injured abductor cries tears of blood. Her cage halts near the man who was attacked by Agent Bannan and who is now lying on an operating table, under a green surgical shroud, still bearing the facial wounds from his assault, as tears of blood fill his eyes and trickle down the sides of his face.
In the conference room at Our Lady of Sorrows Hospital, Father Ybarra finishes informing staff and doctors on the hospital's decision to relocate Christian to a hospice, as Scully enters.
She disputes this arrangement but eventually relents and quietly takes a seat as Father Ybarra begins to turn his attention to the discussion of other matters although, moments later, Scully speaks up to present the controversial option of treating Christian's condition with a form of stem cell therapy, which she insists is not the choice of hospital administration to make but her own.
As she withdraws from the room, Father Ybarra recommends that she consult "the highest authority" on the matter, claiming he already has done so. As scientists work all around him, Mulder calls Scully from QuanticoVirginia. Mulder records a message on her answering machine, informing her, while scientists constantly work on the ice block behind him, that eleven cleanly amputated human limbs, taken from victims, and more traces of the animal tranquilizer have been found in the ice.
After Whitney arrives just as he ends the call, Mulder excitedly claims he has a hunch that they are close to solving a dozen murders but Whitney indicates that her priority is finding Agent Bannan.
Later, surrounded by curious FBI agents in a conference room within the same facility, Father Joe attests to having a vision of Cheryl Cunningham and, inspired by his account, Mulder asks Whitney to make preparations for them to investigate the recent kidnapping.
