Synopsis | Scully investigates a bizarre case in which a haunted doll has caused several victims to inflict wounds upon themselves.
Trivia | The alternative episode title is “Bunghoney”; since “chinga” is a slang word in Mexico, the episode was retitled overseas. “Chinga” is a project originally conceived by noted horror author Stephen King, who approached Chris Carter to do it because he is a fan of the show; then Carter stepped in to work the Mulder-Scully dynamic, and to make the story look like an X-File.
Quotes | Mulder: “Hell, maybe you don’t know what you’re looking for.” Scully: “Like evidence of conjury or the black arts or shamanism, divination, wicca or any kind of pagan or neo-pagan practice, charms, cards, familiars, bloodstones, or hex signs or any of the ritual tableaux associated with the occult, santería, vodun, macumba, or any high or low magic?” Mulder: “Scully…” Scully: “Yes?” Mulder: “Marry me.”
