Storyline

Mulder and Scully investigate the mental breakdown and disappearance of a U.S. Air Force officer, Col. Robert Budahas, once a well regarded test pilot. Mulder's research reveals that there is a pattern of breakdowns at Ellens Air Force base but Scully thinks there are any number legitimate medical reasons for what has happened. Mulder is soon in touch with local UFO enthusiasts and learns where in the area is best to view UFOs. He comes across two young people who regularly sneak onto the base through a hole in the fence to sit back and watch. Mulder believes the aircraft the locals are seeing were built using alien technology and it becomes apparent that the U.S. government is hiding something and will go to great lengths to keep it that way. Throughout, Mulder receives advice and a friendly warning from an unknown man, Deep Throat, who warns him to be careful and confirms Mulder's suspicions about aliens. Written by garykmcd

Goofs

When narrating her field report at the end, Scully says that she "can cooperate Mulder's account" of the UFOs at the base. She means "corroborate", not "cooperate". A later shot of her computer screen shows that she typed "corroborate" correctly. See more »

UFO technology
14 July 2008 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This is one of my favorite episodes, it introduces the character of Deep Throat(He was much better than Mr.X) to the series. This episode also features a guest appearance by Seth Green before he became famous.

There are some great Mulder and Scully moments that could bring a smile to your face, these two characters are the best pair ever. The last 10 minutes of the episode are a must-see. Mulder was so close to seeing the truth, but was prevented from doing so. Then Deep throat warns Mulder that "they" have been with us for millions of years. To sum it all up, its good.

Mulder: Scully tell me i am crazy!

Scully: Mulder... your crazy...
