Storyline

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 garykmcd

E.T. Phone Home!
14 April 2006 | by (Washington Terrace, Utah) – See all my reviews

E.B.E. kicks the mythology into high gear. This episode has everything: danger, suspense, deception, humor, wit, and action. Before this episode I had always referred to aliens as extra-terrestrials (E.T.). This was the first time I had heard the expression extra-terrestrial biological entity (E.B.E). Too bad Spielberg's film wasn't called E.B.E.. And of course, besides the excellent and exciting story, a good reason to see this episode is for the introduction of the Lone Gunmen, a trio of paranoid men who help Mulder out with their expertise from time to time. What makes this episode stand out is that previously Deep Throat has given Mulder information to help him on a case. In this episode, however, he intentionally misleads Mulder. It makes you wonder what Deep Throat's motives truly are. E.B.E. is a top-notch episode that helps you to see whether it's remotely plausible that someone might thing Scully is hot.
