Scully and Mulder travel to a small town when there are reports that five babies were recently born with vestigial tails. Four of the five women were artificially inseminated at the same clinic but the fifth claims to have had sex with Luke Skywalker. Scully thinks it's all nonsense but their focus soon falls on Eddie Van Blundht, a janitor at the fertility clinic. His father had been a circus performer but Eddie seems to have another power: to take the appearance of anyone around him. Things get interesting when he decides to pretend he's Mulder. Written by
Did You Know?
When the officer is typing Eddie's name in the computer, in the first shot he types "Van Blundt, Ed" and he continues typing in the next shot, presumably finishing the first name (Eddie) and possibly the middle name. However, when Eddie points out he spelled his name wrong (Blundt instead of Blundht), the officer backspaces twice and types two letters. This would only fix it if he had typed "Van Blundt," as pressing backspace twice would delete the "t," allowing him to type ht, but seeing as he had already typed the full name it would have only deleted the last two letters of the first or middle name (whichever he last typed). Furthermore, even if he had done it from right after the comma, he didn't retype the comma. And finally, if you watch his typing very closely right before Eddie interrupts him, he's not even pressing the correct letters to type any part of Eddie's name. See more
I have a theory. Do you want to hear it?
Van Blundht somehow physically transformed into his captor and walked out the door, leaving no one the wiser?
Scully, should we be picking out china patterns or what?
