What kind of questions should I expect in an interview going from contractor to permanent employee

This is the first time I've ever had to do this. I've been contracting at a place for almost a year and a half now. A permanent position is opening, they've advertised it to both the current contractors and outside people. Now a couple of us contractors and a external person are being interviewed. It's the same job responsibilities I've had as a contractor, so they should know I'm technically qualified at this point.
The only thing I can think of is some soft people skills question like why do you want to be a permanent employee, what can you bring to the table as an employee that you can't as a contractor and things like that.
The first of those, I think I have covered. The second I'm not so sure. So, if you've done this before, what has been asked of you? If you were the interviewer, what would you ask? Any suggestions on a good answer for the second question I thought of?
