Parenti Medical. 11:47AM. The office is deserted, which makes sense on a Saturday morning. Mulder jimmies the lock and he and Doggett creep inside. Doggett: we better not get caught. Mulder: we're not doing anything wrong. Jessica: other than breaking and entering. They split up to suss out the sitch. Man, these are two good-looking, tight-jeans-clad men. A show, featuring these two, in these jeans, crawling around, doing stuff? I would watch that show. Doggett slowly opens the door to Parenti's very own Dead Alien Babies in Jars room. "Hey, Mooooulder?" he calls. Mulder, in another room, starts to head for Doggett, but he's interrupted when Parenti himself opens a door almost right into him. In the room behind the good doctor, a young woman sits up in the stirrups and covers herself. "What are you doing here?" Mulder asks. "What are you doing here? I'm in the middle of very delicate medical procedure!" Parenti snits. Mid-snit, Doggett sticks his head of the Dead Alien Babies in Jars room. "This delicate medical procedure? Did it have anything to do with this?" he asks, gesturing over his shoulder.
The three of them charge into the Dead Alien Babies in Jars room. Doggett makes a disgusted face, while Mulder just looks around, upset. It's kind of interesting how they both react so emotionally to the Dead Alien Babies in Jars, while Scully just looked intrigued from a scientific standpoint. I know she's, you know, the science-y one, but she's also the one who got knocked up under suspicious circumstances. You think she'd at least begin to put two and two together, but Scully's mathematical abilities seem to have abandoned her along with her waistline. Parenti demands that they leave. "What is this, some kind of showroom?" Mulder spits. Parenti sputters that he's working to prevent the birth defects they see in those jars. Doggett and Mulder look skeptical. "Does that work include experimentation with alien embryos? Work that you would destroy to cover up such allegations?" Mulder grits. Parenti wonders where the two of them are getting such crazy ideas. "From Scully," Mulder says. Parenti irritably wonders why, if Mulder's suspicions are true, Scully's baby is all hunky-dory and fancy-free? "Is it?" Mulder asks. Everyone stares at each other. Then Mulder and Doggett leave, Mulder shooting Parenti one last dirty look.
