Storyline

Mulder and Scully travel to the secretive Area 51 to meet a contact who has inside information on UFOs. Before they arrive, they get stopped by military personnel who tell them to turn back. A weird event occurs that results in Mulder switching bodies with Morris Fletcher, a "man in black" from Area 51, without anyone else knowing. Mulder takes advantage of this perfect disguise to infiltrate Area 51, while Fletcher uses the opportunity to escape the life he hates. Written by Muldernscully

The best
30 August 2008 | by See all my reviews

Season Six of The X-Files is stunning, its brilliant and impossibly good. And this episode is the highlight of season six. In one word its awesome. It is every X-Phile's wet dream of an episode. I truly believe this is one of the entire series finest episodes. The character of Morris Fletcher is hilarious, Michael McKean is pure gold playing him. David Duchovny gives his best performance here. He can be really funny. Scully gets angry at various points during the episode, which is good because she looks so hot when she's mad! Then Morris grabs her ass!!! Ha ha! This is my favorite episode ever. Truly funny. If you want to laugh out loud every two seconds then this is the episode for you. The very best ever!
