Synopsis | Scully and Doggett investigate several killings involving a terrifying bat-like creature.
Trivia | “Patience” is the first episode of the series to not feature David Duchovny’s name in the opening title sequence; before this, he is absent in only two episodes out of 163. The human-bat hybrid is inspired by the comic book villain, Man-Bat – one of the arch-nemeses of Batman.
Quotes | Doggett: “The guys upstairs were making some noise about this case – about what’s in our field report. Scully: “Yeah. You’ll get used to it. I, uh… I never had a desk in here, Agent Doggett, but I’ll see that you get one.”
