X-Files Pilot part ix – Set-Ups and Pay-Offs

In scene 18, at around the 24 minute mark (the midpoint) Mulder checks his watch. It’s 9.03.

Then, in scene 29, about 7 minutes later, this is paid off when Peggy O’Dell dies, run over by a truck at exactly 9.03.

What is interesting to note is that the first watch, Mulder’s is digital.

The second watch, Peggy’s is traditional.

Furthermore, in scene 34, both Mulder and Scully refer to this particular time.

What other set-ups and pay-offs are in this pilot?
