Scully and Mulder investigate a possible encounter between a trucker and a UFO in Tennessee. For Mulder the evidence of a close encounter is overwhelming. With information from Deep Throat, who turns out not to be as useful as it has in the past, Mulder turns to the three Lone Gunmen for help in locating the truck as it makes its way across America. Scully is amazed the the Lone Gunmen's level of paranoia until she finds a bug in a pen in Mulder's desk. They follow the truck but it doesn't lead to a happy conclusion. Deep throat does explain his motivation, however. Written by
