The falls of Arcadia!
23 August 2008 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Hilarious. This episode is brilliantly hilarious! There are so many classic moments that i wont even try to mention them. Mulder and Scully go undercover as a married couple(genius) to investigate the disappearance of several members of a planned community called The Falls Of Arcadia. Mulder is enjoying pretending to be Scully's husband while Scully doesn't like it one bit. Great acting from both David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson! This is one of the best monster episodes, even though the monster is only on screen for a couple of minutes. I thought the episode was one of the most fun to watch ever. And very re-watchable.

Mulder: Woman get back in here and make me a sandwich! (Scully throws her rubber gloves at his face) Mulder: DID I NOT MAKE MYSELF CLEAR!
