He's Totally Resistible, Dude

Cue the montage of pictures of Donnie Pfaster as a child, looking crazier and crazier and nuttier and nuttier, and finally, the adult Donnie looking directly into the camera. "The conquest of fear lies in the moment of its acceptance," Mulder voice-overs. "In understanding that which scares us most is that which is most familiar, most commonplace. That the boy next door, Donnie Pfaster -- the unremarkable younger brother of four older sisters, extraordinary only in his ordinariness -- could grow up to be the devil in a button-down shirt. It's been said that the fear of the unknown is an irrational response to the excesses of the imagination, but our fear of the everyday -- of the lurking stranger, and the sound of footfalls on the stairs -- the fear of violent death and the primitive impulse to survive are as frightening as any X-File, as real as the acceptance that it could happen to you." Mark Snow turns up the scary music real, real high, and we fade to black. Donnie Pfaster makes me cry.
