The X-files

8X08 Per Manum

In the X-files basement office Scully finds Doggett speaking to Duffy Haskell, a man who contacted Mulder eight years before claiming his wife was a multiple abductee. Haskell, the president of the Ohio Mutual UFO Network explains that his wife recently died whilst giving birth to a baby. A baby she should not have been able to have, after being left barren by the experiments conducted on her. Haskell believes the doctors took the baby because it was alien. After Haskell leaves Doggett points out how similar Haskells wife's experience is to Scully's. She warns Doggett to stay out of her personal files but finds herself concerned with what she has heard. Scully visits Zeus Genetics in Germantown, Maryland where Haskell's wife gave birth, while investigating she stumbles on a room full of little jars containing deformed fetuses. Fearful Scully contacts her own doctor, Parenti in hope that he can compare her ultrasound with Haskell's wife. He agrees to her request and hangs up the phone, he is in the same jar filled room that Scully saw. When she returns to the X-files basement office, Doggett informs her that his investigation has revealed that Parenti was the doctor that the Haskell's consulted. Later at home Scully is visited by Mary Hendershot, who saw Scully at Zeus Genetics, she tells Scully that her baby and Scully's baby are in danger. Doggett is informed by Assistant Director Skinner that Scully is taking a leave of absence from the X-files but he does not tell Doggett why.
