Storyline

Scully and Mulder are called in when a businessman is found dead in his office. The doors and windows were locked from the inside and the only other possible opening is an extraordinarily small air vent, which no person could possibly go through. The dead man also had his liver torn out. There is also a strange elongated fingerprint on the vent which leads Mulder to find two sets of old cases the first dating to 30 years ago and the other 30 years before that. All of the victims had their livers torn out of their bodies. More importantly, the elongated fingerprint is an exact match, despite the long interval in between events. Mulder is convinced that the killer is the same man who comes out of hibernation every 30 years to feed his appetites. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

Doug Hutchison is one of the two actors that played the character of Tooms, a liver eating mutant, in the episodes "Squeeze" and "Tooms". Hutchinson is actually a vegetarian, or was at the time. After filming "Tooms" he sent the liver of an animal to Chris Carter as a thank you for the opportunity to play a character on "The X-Files". See more »

Goofs

When Tooms's grabs Scully's leg, his arm is completely out, yet in the next shot of him it's further inside again. See more »

"What was that?" "I think it was something in the vent." "Well go check it out!" "Fine!" "Say Hello to Eugene!" "AAAAHHH!"

Whoa! Right from the top sailing beginning to the bottom breaking end, this max floor chill ride keeps on going! Man Tooms is my favorite villain! Love him! Haven't got the chance to see "Tooms" yet, though, but wow! What an amazing villain! This could quite possibly be one of my favorite X Files episodes! Look out for other comments by foxy_mulder (me!) and if you haven't seen Squeeze, see it! The third episode of Season One attracted me. I saw every episode of season one except Pilot, Deep Throat, Tooms, and Roland. I love this show and recommend it immediately. What a great episode! I'm signing out now, and best wishes to you all.
