While driving through northern Florida with two other FBI agents en route to a team-building seminar, Scully and Mulder are drawn into the disappearance of several men in a wooded area. Rumors are soon circulating in the nearby town that there are monsters in the woods. Mulder soon believes there is definitely something in the woods causing these deaths and nature itself may be seeking revenge in the form of invisible creatures. He and Scully go off into the woods and encounter the creatures firsthand.
Did You Know?
Mulder's line "Try any of that Tailhook crap on me, Scully, I'll kick your ass" is in reference to an incident that took place between September 8 and 12 in 1991. It was the Tailhook Association Symposium conference in Las Vegas, Nevada, in which more than 100 U.S. military officers allegedly sexually assaulted at least 83 women and 7 men. See more
You don't walk around in the woods with an unloaded weapon.
If the father and son were hunting, then the weapon would have been loaded. If they were simply hiking, then carrying a shotgun, loaded or not, would present a number of legal issues. Either way, an unloaded weapon is useless. See more
Mulder? We've got this conference. They're waiting.
Yeah. How do I say this without using any negative words, Scully?
You want me to tell them that you're not going to make it to this year's teamwork seminar.
Yeah. You see that? We don't need that conference. We have communication like that - unspoken. You know what I'm thinkin'.
