    Great episode. I love John Diehl here as Pinker, who is both creepy and funny ("You know, there is something that is just so nice about putting on a new pair of socks. I don't know what it is"). There was also something so funny about Pinker showing up naked everywhere, and then saying stuff like "TREVOR!! Hey buddy!", as if there's no problem at all with what he's doing. Not much Mulder and Scully interaction here, although we do get a few good one-liners from the pair. Most of the action pivots on the "monster of the week" and his extended family. Only complaint about them is Robert, who acts like a complete jerk with very little explanation. Would you break up with your wife-to-be if you find out she "stole" $90,000? Maybe, but I'd be more mystified than angry. Just one point I was confused about.

    Definitely worth watching. Season Six is my favorite season of the show.
