Storyline

With Mulder off on a week's mandatory leave, Scully is on her own and feeling put upon. While in Philadelphia she meets Edward Jerse who asks her out to dinner. Ed has recently gone through a nasty divorced. Despondent and more than a little drunk, he gets a tattoo. Soon after, he begins to hear voices and lashing out at work, loses his job and disposes of a neighbor who he thinks is responsible. After drinks, Scully gets a tattoo of her own but the next day two Philadelphia police detectives show up at Jerse's apartment investigating his neighbor's disappearance. Scully may have found a medical reason for Ed's hallucinations. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

Ed Jerse's neighbor and murder victim Kaye Schilling was inspired by Entertainment Weekly editor Mary Kaye Schilling, whom writers Glen Morgan and James Wong were upset with after the magazine panned a few episodes that they had written. At one point, the character uses a copy of the magazine to line a birdcage, the cover of which features a photo of frequent "X-Files" director R. W. Goodwin. See more »

Goofs

When someone gets a tattoo, the skin at and around the tattoo site is naturally a bit reddened for at least 24 hours, yet Ed Jerse's skin appears normal immediately after getting his tattoo. See more »

Quotes

Scully: Your contact, while interesting in the context of science fiction, was, at least in my memory, recounting a poorly veiled synopsis of an episode of Rocky and Bullwinkle.

Eenie, meenie, chili beanie, the spirits are about to speak?

Another Scully hates her job and wants a change episode. You think she'd learn that every time she does that she gets attacked by a psycho. I'm in love with Jodie Foster from Silence of the Lambs and I think that the character of Scully is very heavily influenced by Clarice. That being said this episode is a great one. I used to find it boring until I became a little more interested in character development than mythology storyline. In this episode Scully is out doing some of Mulder's busywork while he is "forced" to go to Graceland. Spiritual journey ha! Mulder kills me. As for the actual story of the episode it is interesting to learn a little more about Scully. She definitely is the type that is drawn to powerful men and as we see she is quite turned on by being overpowered by Jerse. Some of the banter and crazy statements made by Jerse to "the voice" are very entertaining. He was very welled acted. All in all I can only give this episode a 7/10.
