Storyline

Scully and Mulder head off to Georgia when there are reports of people disappearing around a local lake. Scully isn't sure why they're getting involved until she sees a highway sign advertising their own version of the Loch Ness monster called Big Blue. The latest victim is a park ranger, giving the FBI jurisdiction, but Scully thinks it's all nonsense. The killings continue and Mulder thinks there something very real out there. Scully comes around when she is affected by the 'monster' in a very personal way. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

Scully tells Mulder she named her dog after a character in "Moby Dick". She then starts comparing Mulder to Captain Ahab. In 2011, Gillian Anderson (Scully) plays the part of Elizabeth, the wife of Ahab in the TV presentation of "Moby Dick". See more »

Goofs

Mulder mentions a theory that Big Blue and similar lake monsters are pliosaurs. The theory is actually that the creatures are plesiosaurs (a different kind of prehistoric aquatic reptile, notable for their slender necks) and Big Blue is clearly depicted as such. See more »

Quotes

Scully: Living in the city, you forget a lot of things. You know, there you're always thinking about being mugged or hit by a car. It's not until you get back to nature that you realize that everything is out to get you. That's why my father always taught me to respect nature 'cause it has no respect for you.

A really fun episode
22 April 2008 | by (prejudicemadeplausible.wordpress.com) – See all my reviews

YAY for Quagmire! This fantastic season three episode isn't among most X-philes' favorites, but it's one of my more unorthodox choices. I enjoy this episode a great deal, and though I'm not a shipper I must admit that I loved when Mulder and Scully's respectful intellectual romance came into the forefront as it did here. Very subtle and nice, actually romantic rather than cliché and soap-opera-ish.

The plot is not the most original, that's for sure, but it doesn't matter because it is handled very, very well. Kim Newton only wrote two episodes of The X-Files, what a shame, as this is a very good script. The episode is beautifully directed by Kim Manners as well.

I'm one of Quagmire's biggest fans. Bye Queequeg! 10/10
