Scully and Mulder investigate the murder of someone who was burned alive in a funeral parlor crematorium. The autopsy reveals that he was missing several vital organs - an eye, a kidney - and Scully immediately suspects that the man was selling his organs, any of which would fetch a very high price. Working with a local Chinese-speaking detective, Glen Chao, Mulder gets a lead when they find pieces of hell money, fake currency that is used as a symbolic offering. It all leads them to a deadly game among newly arrived immigrants in need of real money. Written by

A kidney, a portion of the liver, a cornea, bone marrow - a person can lose these things and live to cash the social security checks.
He won't be cashing any social security checks any time soon.
