Favorite Quotes:

* Fran: That paper goes to every house in Raytown.
Mama: Well sure, they throw it on your porch whether you want it or not. All it does is lay out there and tip off the burglars that nobody’s home.

* Fran: I tell you there is a book in me.
Mama: It’s gonna stay in there too.

* Mama: I need a beer. The only way I’m gonna keep from going crazy is to stay half lit.

* Mama: I haven’t told her yet. I have to think of the right words.
Ellen: How about “Fran, I shafted you.”

* Mama: You don’t need that damn studio. For twenty years you’ve been sitting on that book like a hen trying to lay an egg.
Fran: For your information I have finished the first three chapters.

* Mama: How did this smut get into my house?
Fran: That is my book!!!

Synopsis: Aunt Fran is not eating breakfast as fast as Mama would like. Mama is worried she will be late for the start of a sale. The phone rings and it’s Fran’s editor from the newspaper. She runs off to the paper to edit her article and Mama has no way to get to her sale. They argue. Fran asks her to finally clean out the room she is using as a studio to write a book. Fran threatens to move out if the room doesn’t get cleaned out. Vint comes over with the kids and some laundry. He drops a bomb on Mama that he and the kids were evicted and have no place to live. Mama agrees to let them move in. Ellen comes over to get her stuff, but she is upset because she is late for a pedicure. They reminisce about old times. Vint falls down the stairs. As Vint and the kids are moving stuff into the house, Naomi their neighbor pops in. She’s complaining about Mama’s tree dripping wax on her car and driveway. Naomi threatens a lawsuit. Vint comes in and she forgets about her car and starts flirting with him. She does a little cheer. Vint is taken by her. Naomi asks if Vint can take care of the tree. She then asks him out and he happily accepts. In all the madness Fran comes home and asks what’s going on. When Fran finds out she has lost her studio and that Vint and the kids are moving in she has a conniption fit. Sonya stumbles across Fran’s book and starts reading it to Mama, who calls it smut. Mama is shocked she was actually writing. Fran has a total meltdown and threatens to move out. She calms down. Mama hollers supper. Fran is suddenly filled with excuses regarding moving out.

Favorite Quotes:

* Scully: Am I to understand that you want me to debunk the X Files Project, sir?

* Mulder: Sorry, nobody down here except the FBI’s most unwanted.

* Scully: What I find fantastic is any notion that there are answers beyond the realm of science. The answers are there. You just have to know where to look.

Synopsis: A female is running through a forest, during a storm. She sees a bright light and a male walks toward her and they disappear. She is found dead the next day. One of the detectives identifies the body. At FBI Headquarters, Agent Dana Scully arrives. She is interviewed by several higher ups. She is assigned to work with Agent Mulder on the X Files. She is to debunk the X Files project. She goes to Mulder’s office in the basement. He believes Scully has been sent to spy on him. Mulder shows her slides of the dead woman in the forest. Then several others who all have the same unidentified protein. The two fly to Oregon to investigate. Scully notices some discrepancies on the autopsy reports. Mulder informs her he is having one body exhumed. Their radio goes insane on the road. They pull over. Mulder marks the road where it happened. They drive to the cemetery where the body is being exhumed. The medical examiner is quite ticked off. The casket falls, it opens as it does, and inside they find something that does not look human. Scully does an autopsy on the remains, and says its not human, it’s most likely and orangutan. There is a weird metallic implant in the nasal cavity. At the hotel Mulder tells her he’s going for a run, she says good night. They speak to the patients doctor, who believes he was suffering from post traumatic stress. He tells them he is treating two people who were classmates of the deceased. They live at the hospital. Billy is in a waking coma and Peggy is in a wheelchair. Peggy has the spots on her back, like the rest of the victims. Scully yells at him to get the truth. He tells her he thinks the kids have been abducted by what’s and not who’s. Scully wants to know why the kids where in the forest. They go to the forest where she was found. Mulder’s compass spins out of control. Scully takes a dirt sample. A weird sound gets her attention. She sees a bright light as she calls out for Mulder. A man with the Sheriff pulls a shotgun on them and threatens to arrest them. They are escorted back to their car. Scully shows Mulder the strange dirt. While driving the bright light happens again. The car dies. He sees they lost 9 minutes and he sees the mark he sprayed on the road. And while they are out the car, it restarts on it’s own. Back at the hotel Scully checks her back, and finds marks. She showers Mulder. He tells her they are mosquito bites. They stay up talking. Mulder tells Scully about his sisters abduction and how he came to be working the X Files. Mulder gets a weird call from a woman telling him that Peggy O’dell was dead. Mulder and Scully go to the scene. They are told that she ran in front of a truck. Mulder doesn’t know how because she was in a wheelchair. They go back to the hotel and it’s on fire. The coroner’s daughter finds them and asks for help. She is scared she will wind up like the others, as she finds herself in the woods but doesn’t know she gets there. Her nose starts to bleed and her father comes and gets her. Because of all the weirdness they go to the cemetery to check out the rest o te graves. But when they get there, both graves have been dug up. Scully tells Mulder that Peggy’s watch had stopped shortly after 9. They go to visit Billy Miles at the hospital. Scully examines his feet and finds traces of dirt. She found the same dirt from Billy’s feet that she found in the forest. They go back to the forest that night. they hear a scream and they plunge into the forest to help. Scully gets conked on the head by a sheriff. Mulder is also stopped by a sheriff. Billy is there with another girl to kill. Mulder sees the dots on his back. Scully walked into view and sees a bright light. Billy is talking again. The girl isn’t dead. The marks are gone from his back. Billy is taken to FBI Headquarters and question about seeing the light. He tells of his abduction and that they put something in his head. Scully is questioned about her report. She’s told she has no evidence. She hands over the metal inserted in the nose of the victim she autopsied. She states the metal could not be identified. Mulder calls Scully and tells her all the paperwork and evidence is gone, that no charges will be filed. The smoking man puts the piece of evidence that Scully gave him in a secure vault in the Pentagon.

Book: The Real Science Behind The X Files by Anne Simon, PH.D.

I am a fan of The X Files. But there are things in the show that completely creep and/or freak me out. I only recently discovered this book. I had stumbled upon an article that mentioned it. I tried to find a Kindle version to read, but sadly, this does not yet exist. So I went to my local library, where they had a copy, and checked it out.

At first I was worried that I would not understand most of what would be in the book because I don’t have a background in science. But Anne put everything into terms that were easily understandable. I have to admit I was extremely relieved when she said “flukeman” would never be a reality. I breathed a sigh of relief. Other than Tooms, Flukeman scares me the most. I’ll take an alien any day over either of them.

This book actually explains how about a dozen episodes came about. Additionally, it explains the science behind those episodes. But she also brings attention to the fact that a lot of stuff that happens in The X Files is just a more exaggerated version of what’s happening on our planet.

It was quite interesting to learn that the scientist character of Anne Carpenter was based on Anne Simon.
