Storyline

After Mulder drives a stake through the heart of a would be vampire, he and Scully review what happened before they meet Assistant Director Skinner. Their recollection of the case is significantly divergent. They had gone to Texas to investigate a death by exsanguination and Scully thinks that someone is playing at being a vampire. Her autopsy finds a high level of chlorohydrate in the dead man's system. There's soon a second victim and she finds that both victims had eaten pizza. As she recalls it, she saved an incapacitated Mulder and tried to capture the culprit. Mulder's recollection is somewhat different. It was he, not Scully who developed the key clues in the case including the fact that the victim's shoes were untied and then discovering a second victim in a runaway RV. Before they can speak to Skinner, they have to return to Texas when the vampire Mulder killed seems to have disappeared. Written by garykmcd

Creep!
24 February 2011 | by See all my reviews

By far, this has got to be the funniest X-files episode I've ever seen! It's laugh-out-loud funny! What I like about it are the two different viewpoints of the same events, Mulder's and Scully's. It's really like they're a married couple who see the same exact things in a totally different way. It's hilarious! Especially because there's so much truth to it. And Luke Wilson is just too stinkin' funny! This is a must see for any X-Files fan, or anybody wanting a good laugh!

Two favorite lines:

"Yall must be da guvment peepuhl!"

"Creep!"
