Episode Summary

Mulder and Scully's latest case begins with the rape and battery of a nurse in a Massachusetts convalescent home. What makes it an X-File is her claim that her attacker was invisible. But upon their arrival, they discover that the unrest is not limited only to the live-in residents.

Episode Details


Guest Cast


Jerry Tiernan: Hey, guess who died this afternoon? Mrs Richardson.

Upshaw: Face plant right in a bowl of pudding.

Nurse Charters: I don't suppose either one of you bothered to change her room?

Jerry Tiernan: Oh no, no. We left that for you.

Hal Arden: Gung said we could watch the rest of the fight.

Nurse Charters: Yeah, well do I look like Gung to you?

Hal Arden: No, you got a better figure. [Gropes nurse]

Nurse Charters: You want to keep that hand, Hal, you'd better let go.

Hal Arden: How about a little sponge bath?

Nurse Charters: How about I take care of these wandering hands of yours. [Struggles to place Hal's hands in the bed restraints] Come here.

Hal Arden: You like strapping me down, don't you?

Nurse Charters: Oh yeah, I really get off on it.

Scully: Good morning.

Mulder: Whatever tape you found in that VCR isn't mine.

Scully: Good, because I put it back in that drawer with all those other videos that aren't yours.

Mulder: Well, this definitely isn't mine. [Looking at screen]

Nurse Charters: Look, when you bathe somebody every day for five years, you get to know more about them than you really need to.

Hal Arden: You got to be kidding me. What do I think of her claims? I should be in the Guinness record book. I'm 74 years old. I've got plumbing older than this building. [Hal shows Mulder and Scully his plumbing] And it doesn't work much better either.

Mulder: Thank you for sharing.

Hal Arden: [to Mulder] Oh, I didn't mean to step on your toes there. [After propositioning Scully]

Hal Arden: I thought Nurse what's-her-name said she was rogered by a ghost. I may have one foot in the grave, but I certainly can't fly down hallways... spreading amore.

Mulder: Apparently not.

Hal Arden: If that's what it's like... if that's what it's like in heaven, lord take me now!

Scully: What do you think, Mulder?

Mulder: About the guy's plumbing?

Scully: What if there's a connection?

Mulder: Between the rape case and the Alzheimers? You mean when they're not drawing childlike pictures, they're brutal sex offenders?

Mulder: So you think that Michelle Charters was raped by a 74 year old schizophrenic.

Scully: It's possible.

Mulder: An invisible 74 year old schizophrenic...

Scully: Well, maybe it's not the medication, maybe it's the place itself.

Mulder: Are you saying that the building's haunted? Because, if you are, I think you've been working with me too long, Scully.

Jerry Tiernan: [to Stan Phillips] What are you? Track star all of a sudden?

Dr Grago: Just what do you expect to find? [From the post-mortem results]

Mulder: I'm not sure exactly.

Scully: Mulder, mushrooms aren't medication. They taste good on hamburgers, but they don't raise the dead.

Mulder: Shamans have been using them for centuries to gain entrance to the spirit world.

Scully: I think you've been reading too much Carlos Castanedo.
