Goofs

When Mulder and Scully return to the cemetery to find the empty graves they begin to work out what's been going on and Scully says, "And the force summoned Theresa Nemman's body into the woods tonight." But it was Peggy O'Dell who was summoned that night and was killed running across the highway. Theresa Nemman phoned Mulder to tell him Peggy had been killed and approached the agents for protection at the scene of the hotel fire. She describes her previous experiences of having been summoned to the woods but she wasn't summoned that night. She is summoned the next night. See more »

Quotes

Special Agent Dana Scully: Agent Mulder. I'm Dana Scully. I've been assigned to work with you.
Special Agent Fox Mulder: Oh, isn't it nice to be suddenly so highly regarded. So who did you tick off to get stuck with this detail, Scully?
Special Agent Dana Scully: Actually, I'm looking forward to working with you. I've heard a lot about you.
Special Agent Fox Mulder: Oh really? I was under the impression that you were sent to spy on me.

I'm Obsessed with this show, it's that good!
28 January 1999 | by (St. Paul, MN) – See all my reviews

Everyone should watch the X-Files because the writing is superb, the acting is excellent, and the special effects will blow you away. The plots are always interesting and keep you on your toes, watch for tie-ins to other eps and numbers that keep popping up all over, special numbers. It keeps us hard core fans looking. Watch the X-Files and you will not be disappointed!
