The X-files

7X15 En Ami

Mulder and Scully investigate the case of a young boy's miraculous cure in Goochland, Virginia after Scully discovers a newspaper outside her apartment highlighting the case. The boy's parent's religious beliefs prevented their son Jason, who was suffering from cancer, from seeking medical treatment. Scully interviews the boy Jason, who tells her that some angels, who looked like men, told him not to be afraid and then pinched him on the back of the neck. Scully examines his neck and finds evidence of a wound, indicating the possibility that he has a chip implanted there. When Scully returns to her car, she is shocked to find the Cigarette Smoking Man waiting, he claims to have saved Jason's life, like he saved Scully's life, and that he was the person who sent the newspaper to alert her to the case. He also tells Scully that he is dying and wants to pass on the cure to her. Scully does not fully trust the Cigarette Smoking Man, but the chance to get hold of a cure for cancer is something she, as a doctor can not ignore. Scully calls Mulder to tell him she will be out of town for a few days on a family emergency. Mulder worried by Scully's behaviour confides in Assistant Director Skinner about his concerns. With the help of the Lone Gunman, they discover evidence on Scully's computer that someone has been forging e-mail from her to a contact in the Department of Defense named Cobra. Mulder fears that the Cigarette Smoking Man is behind it and that Scully's life is in danger.

Noteworthy Quote

Cigarette Smoking Man: "A dying man who wants to make right, to share his secrets, to bequeath this cure to millions of others just like that boy."

Scully: "So you want to give it to us."

Cigarette Smoking Man: "To you, Agent Scully. I've tired of Mulder's mule-headedness, his foolish ideas of overthrowing the system."
