Synopsis | Mulder and Scully go undercover, posing as a married couple, to investigate strange happenings in a planned suburban community.
Trivia | The crew members gave the creature a variety of nicknames: “Gumby on Steroids”, “Mr. Butterworth”, “Fecal Fred”, and “Sh*t Monster”. The creature (a psychologically manifested compilation of garbage) posted a major challenge because it was not easy to envision what it should look like; there was a lot of reediting, cutting, visual effects jiggering, and darkening to give the monster its best look possible. As a result, the airing of the episode was delayed by two weeks due to monster-related special effects.
Quotes | Mulder: “You want to make that honeymoon video now?” Scully: “Rob and Laura Petrie?” Mulder: “Pee-trie.” Scully: “Mulder, if we ever go undercover again I get to choose the names, okay?”
