The X-Files revival kicked off with one of the longest, most complicated monologues from Mulder (David Duchovny) in the series' history. Now, in this exclusive behind-the-scenes video, Duchovny explains what went into his epic conspiracy rant in "My Struggle."

"In a way, that was good to do probably the hardest Mulder-like scene right off the bat first. Those facts and fingers need to be at your fingertips or else they don't sound right," Duchovny says in the video above. "In fact, you have to say them so fast that people don't know that you're actually not making any sense. That's one of the tricks."

To get more behind-the-scenes looks at The X-Files revival, The X-Files — The Event Series is available on Blu-ray and DVD on June 14. And if you're feeling nostalgic, the complete series boxset is available the same day!
