Episode Goofs
This episode seems to have some serious continuity problems. The previous three episodes seemed pivotal in the development of Mulder and Scully's characters, but this episode seems to be business-as-usual, which is odd, due to the life-changing experiences (comas, abductions, the murder of close family members) the agents have experienced.

Location goof: Oklahoma is where this episode it located, but we've never seen it look so forested and green. It's understood that The X-Files was filmed in Vancouver, but the accents sounded like they were from Beverly Hills, 90210.
