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

Scully's dog is named Queequeg after the fictional character in the 1851 novel Moby-Dick by American author Herman Melville. The chief harpooner aboard the Pequod, Queequeg is the first principal character encountered by the narrator, Ishmael. This episode displays many elements in common with Moby-Dick, particularly the obsession with a large, evasive aquatic animal. See more

I called him Ahab and he called me Starbuck. So I named my dog Queequeg. It's funny, I just realised something.
It's a bizarre name for a dog, huh?

Scully, are you coming on to me?
