Storyline

Well known author Jose Chung is writing a book about the claimed alien abduction of a young couple that was subsequently investigated by agents Mulder and Scully. With Mulder unavailable, Scully provides most of the information on the case. Chrissy and Harold were out on a date when their car suddenly lost all power in the middle of nowhere. From that point on however, their stories and that of the others involved in the investigation begin to vary considerably. It all equally leads to several possible conclusions. Written by garykmcd

Quotes

Blaine: [about Scully and Mulder] One of them was disguised as a woman, but wasn't pulling it off. Like, her hair was red, but it was a little too red, y'know? And the other one, the tall, lanky one, his face was so blank and expressionless. He didn't even seem human. I think he was a mandroid.

How the Hell should I know?
5 April 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Just spent 5 hours transcribing the last several pages - the line "a ticking time-bomb of insanity"......!!!!!!!!

Jose: "What really happened to those kids on that night" Mulder: How the hell should i know?

Crap - i wasn't looking - but there was NO LINE that i could improve. The build up - and the last lines -- is what this is for - nothing I've seen TV/movie - matches this ending.

Im profoundly envious - of this whole script - and this last line:

"then there are those who care not about extraterrestrials - searching for meaning in other human beings -- rare or lucky are those who find it - for although we may not be alone in the Universe - in our own separate ways - on this planet - we are all alone."
