A convict in Mississippi is reprimanded by a dictatorial warden, who puts the convict in a solitary confinement box located outside during a huge storm in which several tornadoes touch down. When the storm subsides, the box has been destroyed, but its former occupant has escaped and wreaks havoc on those that wronged him. Mulder and Scully try to figure out his next move and how the convict is able to move through seemingly impassable barriers.
Scully: Spontaneous human combustion.
Mulder: (in disbelief) Scully.
Scully: Well, isn't that where you're going with this?
Mulder: Dear Diary, today my heart leapt when Agent Scully suggested spontaneous human combustion.
Scully: Mulder, there are one or two somewhat well-documented cases.
(Mulder nods and averts his eyes from her)
Scully: Mulder, shut up.
Just after Rawls is hit by the car, splitting him in two, Scully is shown looking over her right shoulder through the hole in the phone booth. In the next shot, Rawls' boy is shown and Scully moves her body to shield him from the scene, which culminates in the next shot showing her exactly as she had been shown a moment earlier.
