Synopsis | Mulder and Scully go undercover, posing as a married couple, to investigate strange happenings in a planned suburban community.
Trivia | Originally, the main antagonist in “Arcadia” was an infamous individual who was terrorizing the neighborhood and becoming a sort of metaphorical bogeyman; eventually, the story was re-written to include an actual monster – a Tulpa creature. The crew members gave the creature a variety of nicknames: “Gumby on Steroids”, “Mr. Butterworth”, “Fecal Fred” and “Sh*t Monster”. The airing of “Arcadia” 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?”
