Storyline

In yet another crazed crossover, Leonard Nimoy narrates another tale of the supernatural, reminiscent of his days with "In Search Of." Realizing that even he's too drunk to drive after a night at Moe's Tavern, Homer stumbles through the woods and encounters a green glowing alien. Needless to say, nobody takes him seriously, except for "X-Files" FBI Agent Fox Mulder, who once again drags along his partner Dana Scully on another quest to prove the government is hiding the presence of UFO's from the public. However, even this mission may make a skeptic out of Mulder. Written by Daniel Timothy Dey

Goofs

When the town is waiting for the alien to appear, Homer asks a t-shirt salesman for two "Homer is a Dope" shirts, even though he was just told they were sold out. See more »

Quotes

Mulder: Look at this, Scully: there has been another unsubstantiated UFO sighting in the heartland of America. We've got to get there right away.
Scully: Well, gee Mulder, there's also this report of a shipment of drugs and illegal weapons coming into New Jersey tonight.
Mulder: I hardly think the FBI is concerned with matters like that.

My Favourite Episode,
10 June 2010 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

The Springfield Files is an outstanding Simpsons episode that is packed with one laugh after another from start to finish.It is without a doubt my favourite episode of the entire series,I love the storyline,the funny parts in literally every scene and the X Files Parody.I've seen this episode so many times and I still laugh at the exact same parts each time.Rhe Springfield Files is a really great Simpsons episode.

Homer decides to try a different drink on a Friday night,but after getting too drunk he is forced to walk home.He gets lost in a forrest and is convinced he saw an alien.He gets the FBI to help investigate what he saw.However,no one in Springfield believes him.
