Goofs

When Mulder and Scully are discussing zombies, Scully explains to Mulder how zombies and the like are just figments of the imagination. However, in the earlier episode The X-Files: Millennium, Scully encounters a zombie toward the end of the episode. She shoots at, and is attacked by, the zombie. She even reports such to A.D. Skinner. It seems unrealistic that an FBI agent would forget a past experience that was so unsettling. See more »

Quotes

Fox Mulder: You know Scully, I was just thinking about Lazarus, Ed Wood, and those Tofurkey-eatin' zombies. How come when people come back from the dead, they always wanna hurt the living?
Scully: Well, that's because people can't really come back from the dead, Mulder. I mean, ghosts and zombies are just projections of our own repressed cannibalistic and sexual fears and desires. They are who we fear that we are at heart. Just mindless automatons who can only kill and eat.

A good ghoulish time
13 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

With the Syndicate gone and the answer to Mulder's sister's disappearance finally answered, there are many more stand-alone episodes in the series. I've seen a lot of fans dislike Seasons 6 & 7 because of the increase in stand-alones and the increase in the show's humor. Not for me. This episode (directed by Duchovny) is an example of the cast just having a good time. The show doesn't have to be all about aliens, conspiracies, and seriousness all the time. The bubble bath scene alone is priceless! Plus, how many times do we get to see Scully laugh? There are outtakes where they would have to stop shooting for a period of time because Gillian Anderson couldn't stop laughing. All in all, this episode shows the actors in a somewhat different light and it's enjoyable to see.
