Synopsis | Mulder and Scully search for a killer in a Florida town inhabited by sideshow performers.
Trivia | “Humbug” is the first straighforward comedy in the series. Initially, FOX was reluctant about the episode; they thought it would damage the show. The departure from the series’ usual style made some of the crew, including director Kim Manners, nervous. Chris Carter, David Duchovny, and Gillian Anderson were open-minded about it, and looked at it as a nice change of pace.
Quotes | [Mulder falls on a bed of nails] Scully: “Mulder, are you okay?” Mulder: “It’s more comfortable than a futon.”
