And they do. He's Air Force. Just as Mulder gives Scully this telling tidbit of information, the Air Force shows up, led by a guy who looks like Kyle McLachlan, but more dead inside. Blah blah AWOL blah blah dead blah blah blah blah Mulder tricks Dead Inside into giving him the other pilot's name blah blah blah blah the body's disappeared. "So, what else is new?" Scully asks. Mulder runs off to retrieve the video from Geeky.
Geeky's sitting on his mattress on the floor, watching the video. Someone knocks on the door, but he bursts through it before Geeky even gets off the floor. It's Jesse Ventura, and he's ready to kick some geek ass. Over Geeky's weak protests, Jesse Ventura rips off the top of Geeky's VCR and wrenches out the videotape. The other man in black hauls Geeky up by his collar. Geeky gives the second guy a big familiar, pleased smile. "Hey!" he chirps. Then he notices what Jesse Ventura is doing to his VCR. "You have no right to suppress this!" he repeats. "Roswell! Roswell!" Jesse Ventura responds to this by hoisting Geeky almost above his head and then cracking Geeky's spine over his leg. Geeky passes out and Jesse Ventura tosses him on the floor. If I said I never wanted to do that, I would be lying.
Geeky explains that he came to when Mulder smacked him across the face. "Where's the tape?" Mulder spits. "He took it," Geeky yelps. Mulder slaps him again! "Who?" he asks. "The other men in black," Geeky whines. "If I find out you lied to me, you're a dead man," Mulder says, tossing Geeky's head back against the mattress and dramatically exiting.
Geeky finishes his tale and looks up balefully at Jose Chung. I notice that Geeky has an "I Want to Believe" poster on his wall, too. "I never saw him again," Geeky says of Mulder. Jose Chung wonders if Geeky isn't somewhat nervous, talking about these events in light of all the death threats he's received from various seemingly dangerous men. Geeky explains that you don't play Dungeons or Dragons for years without "learning a little something about courage." Jose Chung chuckles and makes a note of this. Literally.
Scully voice-overs that, "after not recovering the tape," Mulder headed back to the motel. "And that's when his version of things gets a little...odd," she says, over a shot of Mulder driving past a beat-up looking naked guy. He slams on the brakes and flips a bitch to chase down the naked guy. I have no comment about that. He pulls up alongside Naked Guy. "Lieutenant Jack Sheaffer?" Mulder asks. Jack reaches in the open car window and grabs Mulder's collar. "This is not happening! It's not happening!" he yelps.
