Fade to Klass County. About dawn. I presume. I have not actually seen dawn in...oh, approximately nine years. That's a lie, now that I think about it. Last summer, I was in a wedding and I had to get up at 3 in the morning so as to have my hair done in time for the 10 AM ceremony. That was not the easiest morning of my life, friends. Anyway, Scully explains that they didn't hear about the case right off the bat, since not enough time had elapsed for it to be considered a missing persons case before Chrissy popped up. Also, you know, because there's no reason the X-Files would get called in before the kids started yammering about the little green men.
Cut to Chrissy sitting in the car, alone and looking scarred from...you know, the anal probe or whatever happened to her on the ship. Scully voice-overs that Chrissy was suffering from "missing time," and had no idea what had happened to her or how she ended up where she did. Chrissy's clothes were on inside out and backward, Scully says (although they aren't, really, unless Chrissy is in the habit of wearing cardigans that button up the back, in which case I suspect that the aliens took her as a favor to the fashion police). Chrissy exhibited signs of physical abuse, Scully says. Jose Chung sighs that he's had a morning or two like that, and that it seems as though Chrissy's symptoms are in keeping with people who are... "Do you prefer the term 'abductee' or 'experiencer'?" he asks. Scully sighs that she prefers neither, but that Mulder uses "abductee." Jose Chung shares that he prefers the latter. "'I've just had an alien experience,'" he swaggers, "versus 'I've just been abducted!'" Scully has no response to this, so Jose Chung goes back to scribbling in his little leather book. "Regardless," Scully says, "the girl was considered neither at the time. She appeared to be a victim of date rape more than anything else."
