Quotes

Jenn: The only thing you people are cursed with is stupidity. All of you. Everybody. Mankind. Everyone I have ever come into contact with without fail. Always asking for the wrong thing.
Mulder: You mean making the wrong wishes.
Jenn: Yeah, it's always: "Give me money. Give me big boobs." "Give me a big hoo-hoo." "Make me cool like the Fonz." Or whoever's the big name now.
Mulder: You been out of circulation a long time.
Jenn: So what? In 500 years, people have not changed a bit.
Dana Scully: 500 years.
Jenn: Granted, they smell better now ...

I wish...
13 August 2007 | by (Sandy, UT, United States) – See all my reviews

Je Souhaite is a great episode. I have said before that Season 7 is one of my favorites even though often times it seems that many didn't like it very much. I think the Je Souhaite is among the great lighthearted episodes. It is always nice to take a break from the serial killers and monsters and just have a simple episode and I think that is one thing that this season does very well although some may argue a little too often. "The Amazing Maleeni", "The Goldberg Variation", and "Fight Club" are other examples of lighthearted episodes that I enjoy from this season. The only complaint I have for Je Souhaite is at times the genie seems to be overacting her boredom. But hey such is life. She does have other good shining moments.

I will only mention a few of my favorite scenes. The whole invisible autopsy and Scully's fun little dust scene are great. This of course leads to one of the other great moments when the body disappears and Scully doubts what she observed when Mulder tells her she can't deny it now because she saw it. I love how Mulder groans at this part. It perfectly sums up 7 years of frustration in dealing with a skeptic partner who won't believe anything she doesn't understand even when she stares it in the face. I also enjoy, as gruesome as it is, watching that poor guy trying to talk without any lips. Haha! This is an entertaining episode and although not necessarily anything super special I still give it a 8/10.
