Excerpt from The Nitpicker's Guide for X-Philes by Phil Farrand
Jose Chung's From Outer Space
"The truth" goes for a wild ride when author Jose Chung comes to the Bureau. He is documenting a purported abduction of two teenagers in Klass County, Washington, and wants to include Dana Scully's version of events, since she and Mulder investigated the case. Of course, Chung has no more certainty of what actually happened in Klass County even after speaking with Scully, but here are some possibilities.
Depending on your viewpoint: Two teenagers either were or were not abducted by gray aliens--or they were abducted by a big red alien who abducted the gray aliens as well. Roky Crikenson may or may not have witnessed the abductions, but in either case he managed to pen a screenplay about a red alien named Lord Kinbote, who spoke in King James English. And the gray aliens may or may not have been aliens at all but merely air force personnel, in alien costumes, one of whom may have spoken with Mulder. On the other hand, Mulder simply may have spent that evening eating pie in a diner. Either way, at least we know that Mulder spent the following night in Scully's room, although he slept in a chair, and that may or may not have been because of a visit from the infamous Men in Black--one of whom may have looked just like Alex Trebek!
Klass County Washington
What actually happened to Harold and Chrissy?
There is no Klass County in Washington State.
Call me old-fashioned, but it just seems odd. We join the two young people featured in this episode, Harold and Chrissy, as Harold drives along some backwoods road and tells Chrissy that he's crazy about her. Chrissy smiles and says that she likes him a lot but it's their first date and she thinks they need time to get to know one another. Sage advice, indeed. Here's what I find strange: They are abducted moments later, and--in time--it is revealed that they had intercourse before the "aliens" appeared. In other words, Harold picks her up. They jump into the backseat. They jump each other. They have sex. They get dressed. Harold begins to drive her somewhere. Harold tells her he loves her. And Chrissy responds by saying that they need time to get to know each other?! Does anyone else out there think there's something wrong with this scenario?
