  • Trivia

    • Although 'Rocky' thinks of himself as Scully's partner, he is actually just a scientist with specialist knowledge. When Scully and Rocky enter Dylan's house, having found the door open, in what appear to be all sorts of suspicious circumstances, it seems very odd that Scully would allow him to be responsible for looking around the ground floor whilst she takes the upstairs, especially when he's only armed with a pheromone tester! As an FBI agent, wouldn't she want to clear the house first before allowing civilians in? Or even call for backup since she's the only armed officer. Given that they know there is a definite possible danger. I know it's a funny scene, but procedurally it's more than a little suspect.

      It is also quite odd that they would not turn on any lights in the house!
