X-ray lab. Scully critically eyes what I presume are Mulder's brain scans. Enter Skinman (that's the name of my latest album, by the way). Skinner is sad and dismayed that no one called and told him about Billy. Scully bitterly remarks that Billy's recovery is too good to be true: there is absolutely nothing wrong with him. Skinner doesn't understand why Scully isn't thrilled to pieces about that fact. She twists up her mouth and tells Skinner that Billy's case makes no medical sense. "Something's not right," she says. "He literally became a new person. And I don't mean the same person." Skinner furrows his big bald brow. "Do you think this has to do with an alien influence? Or a virus?" he asks. Scully wonders why he's asking her all these questions. "Do you know something?" she asks. "We're working against the clock!" Skinner purses his lips. "There may be a vaccine," he hesitantly says. Scully jumps at this news. Skinner warily informs her that the vaccine has a price. "This is about saving a man's life!" Scully exclaims. Skinner, master of doublespeak, looks at his shoes. "Yes, it is," he says.
