FBI Evidence Lab. Agent "Never Seen Him Before" Crane sifts through charred evidence from the Zeus Genetics blaze. He's irritated that Doggett called him into the office on this crazy wild goose chase: he was at his kids' baseball game, for Pete's sake! Because he's as American as apple pie! He's all that's good and true in this world! He's like fireworks and hot dogs and chocolate cake and fried chicken (I'm hungry) all rolled into one! And he's still bitching when Mulder strolls in. Crane snips that Mulder must have put Doggett up to weekend duty. "You don't have to answer to him, you know," he prisses. "He's out of the Bureau now." Doggett's all, whatever. Is Crane Doggett's new partner? Did I sleep through an episode where we established that? Anyway, Doggett strolls over to Mulder, who tells him that Dr. Lev is missing. And he probably got all burned up. Doggett wonders what, exactly, they're looking for in all this burned-up stuff. Mulder: blah X-Files blah. Doggett grouses that Mulder is wasting Doggett's wild weekend of gun-cleaning and race-watching. "And Skinner was coming over later. To...uhhh...help me...with...my gun." Mulder doesn't hear this slip (because I made it up), and asks Doggett whether he knew that the co-founder of Zeus Genetics was Dr. Parenti, Scully's erstwhile obstetrician. Doggett's all, dude! Mulder's all, I think we ought to pay the illustrious doctor a visit.
