Synopsis | Mulder and Scully investigate the death of an infant with disturbing birth defects, and the trail of clues leads to a murderous clan of inbred mutants.
Trivia | “Home” is the first episode of the series to receive a viewer discretion warning. After its initial airing, FOX took it out of rotation (the only time in The X-Files history that this happened) for three years. The network offered to lift the ban and allow the episode to be repeated if the bludgeoning scene was removed; however, screenwriters Glen Morgan and James Wong refused. The episode eventually returned to FOX on Halloween 1999.
Quotes | Mulder: “Is there some secret farmer trick to get these things moving?” Scully: “I don’t know. Naa-ram-ewe! Naa-ram-ewe!” Mulder: “Yeah, that’ll work.”
