This episode is notable mainly for being Vince Gilligan's first script. I liked the dialogue between Mulder and Scully, although the rest of the characters are a little thin and the premise is absurd. Tony Shalhoub was fine as Dr. Banton, the Human Black Hole. It's always nice to see X make an appearance. And, as we know, Gilligan did improve.

Writer: Vince Gilligan
Director: James Contner
Originally aired: May 5, 1995

A police officer who was a student of Scully's from Quantico asks her to consult, unofficially, on a missing person's case.

Most Memorable Quote:
SCULLY: Having a little fun?
MULDER: What are you talking about?
SCULLY: Spontaneous human combustion?
MULDER: I have over a dozen case files of human bodies reduced to ash without any attendant burning or melting. Rapid oxidation without heat.
SCULLY: Let's just forget for the moment that there's no scientific theory to support it.
MULDER: (flippantly) Okay.

Mr. Monk and the Deadly Shadow. Gotta love deadly shadows.
The gap between the door and the floor should have been much higher (or the light source much lower), though, to get so far into the room. Tut, tut. And how does the shadow only affect stuff, when it's the victims' clothes?

"You don't think anyone could have squeezed in there?" - "You never know." Nice continuity there.
