Trivia

Producer R.W. Goodwin recalled how he knew that he was working on The X-Files (1993) when he overheard director Rob Bowman saying to make-up artist Toby Lindala "I need the pus to go from left to right". See more »

Goofs

At one point Dr. Osborne tells Scully: "We finance exploration of new species for the rain forest with potential drug applications." As spoken this line doesn't make sense - it really should be: "We finance exploration of the rain forest for new species with potential drug applications." It's unclear whether the error was the actor's or the screenwriter's. See more »

Quotes

Scully: According to the briefing, the prisoners escaped while hiding in a laundry cart.
Mulder: I don't think the guards have been watching enough prison movies.

Oh its vile
4 January 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This episode, well, this episode is hard to review. The case its self is quite good, its fast paced, has quite a gripping climax and if you can handle it, will probably maintain your interest for the 42 or so minutes. But, for me who has real problems with anything to do with spots, boils, and, the 'stuff' inside them,,, it was just GROSS. Its by far the most gross episode I've seen and makes the worm scene in Ice, and the Scully neck scene in roadrunners seem lovely! It is just absolutely disgusting right from before the credits begin! If you think that you're fine with all that sort of stuff, then don't get me wrong there's an enjoyable episode here. But for some, and i hate to say it, but maybe for me, its just too gross! You have been warned!
