J. #AtoZChallenge - The re-opening of The X-Files

My 2015 Blogging from A to Z April Challenge theme is The re-opening of The X-Files. I'm not going to reiterate the known facts about the show, but share with you how it ruled my life for 9 seasons and beyond.

J = Jose Chung's From Outer Space

An alien abduction of two teenagers with different versions of the same facts prompts a science-fiction novelist to write a book about the incident. However, no one involved with the investigation can tell him the full story with any accuracy.

Hands down one of the funniest episodes The X-Files ever put out. From awesome guest stars to alien autopsies to blankitty-blank bleep to bad manuscripts to Men In Black to spaceships to sweet potato pie!

THIS is what good TV is all about.


Special Agent Stormy the Weather Gnome here.
When you get bored of listening to her drivel about her favorite TV show, make sure you drop down to the bottom of the posts to see me. I'm sharing funny quotes from the show.

JOSE CHUNG: That is odd. Because almost every day I was there, I ate lunch at that diner and became dear friends with the cook. He told me a story about the night you're talking about.
(He looks at another set of notes. Cut back to the diner. Mulder walks in.)
JOSE CHUNG: A man walked into his place...
MULDER: Sweet potato pie.
(Chung continues talking.)
JOSE CHUNG: Sat down, ordered sweet potato pie, identified himself as F.B.I. Agent Mulder.
(Mulder sits and holds up his badge. The cook walks over and takes out a piece of pie.)
JOSE CHUNG: He then questioned my friend.
(The cook puts down a piece of pie in front of Mulder.)
MULDER: You ever seen a UFO in these parts?
(Mulder takes a huge bite. The cook watches him. Chung talks again.)
JOSE CHUNG: He then ordered piece after piece, each time asking another question.
(The cook picks up the empty plate and puts another one down.)
MULDER: You ever experienced a period of "missing time?"
(He takes another huge bite. Later, the cook replaces that empty plate with one with another piece of pie.)
You ever had the suspicion that you've been abducted by aliens?
(Another piece of pie is soon to come.)
Have you ever found a metal implant in your body?
(The cook shakes his head. Mulder digs into another piece of pie.)
Have you checked everywhere?
(The cook looks at him. Mulder stands and puts a bill down on the counter.)
JOSE CHUNG: He ate a whole pie in that fashion, then got up and left. My friend never saw him again.
