Trivia

Scully asks Mulder how many times he's seen "Plan 9 from Outer Space", to which he replies "42". This is a long running geek reference from The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy as "The Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, The Universe, and Everything." It's also Mulder's apartment number.

Goofs

The shot at 6m 35s purports to show "Christ's Church Washington DC". There is a church by that name in the city, but it is not this one shown. See more »

Quotes

Fox Mulder: You know Scully, I was just thinking about Lazarus, Ed Wood, and those Tofurkey-eatin' zombies. How come when people come back from the dead, they always wanna hurt the living?
Scully: Well, that's because people can't really come back from the dead, Mulder. I mean, ghosts and zombies are just projections of our own repressed cannibalistic and sexual fears and desires. They are who we fear that we are at heart. Just mindless automatons who can only kill and eat.
Fox Mulder: Party pooper. Well, I got a new theory. ...

A good ghoulish time
13 January 2007 | by kahurleySee all my reviews

With the Syndicate gone and the answer to Mulder's sister's disappearance finally answered, there are many more stand-alone episodes in the series. I've seen a lot of fans dislike Seasons 6 & 7 because of the increase in stand-alones and the increase in the show's humor. Not for me. This episode (directed by Duchovny) is an example of the cast just having a good time. The show doesn't have to be all about aliens, conspiracies, and seriousness all the time. The bubble bath scene alone is priceless! Plus, how many times do we get to see Scully laugh? There are outtakes where they would have to stop shooting for a period of time because Gillian Anderson couldn't stop laughing. All in all, this episode shows the actors in a somewhat different light and it's enjoyable to see.
