Trivia

The idea exploring the secret military experimental use of low-frequency waves is based on two real-life military experiments, Project HAARP and Project ELF. The former is an army experiment dealing with electromagnetic radiation in the Earth's ionosphere, and the second is a navy experiment dealing with long wavelengths or "Extreme Low Frequencies".

Goofs

As Scully walks into the Crumps yard and her flashlight illuminates an old chaise lounge, a person wearing a white tank top runs out from the bushes and off screen to the right. No reference to this person is made in the story. See more »

Go West Young Man (AND STEP ON IT!)
24 July 2006 | by (Lindenhurst, IL) – See all my reviews

Another decent offering from the pen of Vince Gilligan.

A pre-"Malcolm in the Middle" Bryan Cranston plays Patrick Crump, a deranged guy who eventually hijacks Mulder via gunpoint and has him driving west at high speeds. It has something to do with his severe head ringing (& possible deadly combustion--his wife just experienced it), and the pressure only seems to be relieved by heading towards the left coast. Only Mulder could relate to this guy's plight, and actually bond with his captor before the all night ride is completed.

Meanwhile, Scully seems to have solved the case with a possible remedy for Mr. Crump, and will meet them at the ocean. Check it out to see if our Dynamic Duo can hook up at the Pacific and somehow rectify Mr. Crump's big problem.
