The G-Men...er, G-People, and Bruckman, begin combing the woods for AllThoseLetters's body, but they're not having a ton of luck. Bruckman tells them that the first time he ever saw someone's death was the night Buddy Holly died. Then he wrote an eight-minute song about it, which Madonna recently remade, much to his disdain. Actually, he tells them that he was a big fan of the Big Bopper, who also died in the plane crash that killed Holly. "'Chantilly Lace,'" he says. "That was the song." Mulder and Scully just sort of look at him, not seeing how the Big Bopper is germane to the story at hand. Bruckman explains that the Big Bopper wasn't even supposed to be on the plane with Buddy Holly. He won the seat from somebody else by flipping a coin for it. "Imagine all the things that had to occur, not only in his life, but in everybody else's, to arrange it so on that particular night, the Big Bopper would be in a position to live or die, depending on a flipping coin," he continues. "I became so obsessed with that idea that I eventually became capable of seeing the specifics of everybody's death." Scully sort of pooh-poohs that explanation. Well, actually, she totally pooh-poohs it. "Where's the body?" she asks. The three of them impotently look around the forest. "I guess I can't see the forest for the trees," Bruckman comments.
The trio trudges back to the car, only to find it stuck in the mud. Bruckman and Mulder get out to help unstick it. The wheels spin in the muck, splattering Mulder's nice pretty expensive suit. As Mulder bemoans the state of his ensemble, Bruckman grimaces, and points. A mud-covered hand is lodged underneath the front passenger-side wheel of the car. Wow -- when he says "this is the spot," he really means it, eh?
Back at Bruckman's apartment, Mulder presents the man of the hour with a teeny, tiny bit of fiber. It's the only evidence from the body they found, Mulder says, and may be something from the killer. Bruckman snarks that he thought the FBI had labs for that kind of thing. "Yes. Yes, we do," Scully says pointedly. Mulder ignores her -- not in a mean way, just in the way the two of them tend to ignore each other when one of them is trying to make a point and the other is not helping -- and points out that a similar fiber was found on another victim, and that they've already sent that out to the lab.
