wendelah1: Mulder watching Scully walk off in a huff (I fucked that up)

This is one of the grossest episodes of television I have ever seen. Exploding pustules! Massive boils! The scene below where Scully has a beetle taped to her arm to determine whether or not she's infested with this DISEASE-CARRYING PUSTULE-CAUSING PARASITE makes me squirm and I'm not usually squeamish. To quote Mulder on this issue:"I hate insects." Exactly.

Sorry. Wrong episode. But "F. Emasculata" does have something in common with "War of the Corprophages," other than that they're both about bugs, I mean. Mulder and Scully are separated during most of the episode, pursuing the investigation independently: Scully as a scientist, and Mulder as a chaser-after-the-bad-guys person.

Synopsis: After a mysterious fatal illness infests a prison population, two prisoners who may be carrying the contagion manage to escape. The CDC is already on site and the US Marshals are already in pursuit of the escaped convicts. Nevertheless, for reasons that will never become entirely clear, Mulder and Scully are sent by the FBI to investigate.

Most Memorable Quote:
Skinner: For every step you take they're three steps ahead.
Mulder: What about you, where do you stand?
Skinner: I stand right on the line you keep crossing.
