The X-files

6X05 Dreamland II

Morris Fletcher recants Mulder's life from his sister's disappearance, to his time at Oxford, his FBI training and his first assignment at Behavioural Science. And then he went mad, turned away from his brilliant career and spent his time shaking his fist at the sky and muttering about conspiracies to anyone who will listen. But Morris is going to change all that. Mulder is not adapting to his new identity quite as easily. He is free at least, after the Black Box he attempted to show to Scully turns out to be a fake, his fellow Area 51 colleagues assume he was trying to scam the FBI in an attempt to discover the identity of the informant in their midst. Scully is sanctioned by Assistant Director Kersh and put on suspension for two weeks, Morris invites her to dinner under the pretence of easing her pain. When she arrives, Morris has tidied up and uncovered a bedroom in Mulder's apartment. As he attempts to seduce her, prompted by his strange behaviour she handcuffs him to the bed and accuses him of being Morris not Mulder. Morris admits that it is true, but claims not to know how to reverse the switch. Scully takes Morris to see the Lone Gunman, but they are unable to provide any suggestions. The situation looks hopeless until one of the Area 51 employees uncovers evidence that suggests that the switch will reverse itself, if they are in the right place at the right time. Acting on this Scully takes Morris to meet Mulder where the switch first occurred in an attempt to restore normality. Part Two

Noteworthy Quote

General Wegman: "There comes a time when you... look back instead of forward... See the sum of your life. My entire career has been spent hiding the truth from the American people destroying, in a way, that which was most precious to me."
