Daytime. Poor dead Bud is lying dead in a Bud-shaped hole in the ground. Moronica and Doggett stare down at him. Doggett's gray suit is just lovely. A TV news van pulls up behind them, cameramen spilling out like clowns from a clown car. "Smile," Moronica hisses. "All of Southern California is watching us scratch our heads in confusion." Doggett looks over his shoulder at the camera crew and just shrugs. "Let's go get some damn answers," he gruffs. Ha ha ha ha ha ha! Ah, Doggett, stop it! You're killing me. Ah, thinking any of us are going to get answers! You sweet, naïve man! If only. Doggett and Moronica knock on Oliver's front door. He flings it open and stares at them, somewhat wildly. "I've said all I'm going to say to you people!" he squeals. "You don't like it, go get your warrant!" He slams the door. Doggett and Moronica shrug, and head back into the yard. "He called your bluff," Moronica says, offering that maybe they really can get a warrant. Doggett rolls his eyes. "Yeah," he says. "'Judge, I want to toss the house of a man who makes people magically zoom into the sky. It has something to do with electricity and poltergeists and whatnot.' Yeah, that'll fly," he laughs. I think? That was a shout-out. In the recap of "Scary Monsters," I said: "Doggett thinks they can convince a judge to give them a warrant. I can see it now. 'Your honor, he had dirt on his hands! And his kid thinks a monster killed his cat!' That's totally going to fly." And I say "whatnot" all the time! Don't I? I do! Come on! Shout-out! Right? Right? Oh, shut up and just agree with me. So, Moronica and Doggett are standing in the yard, looking totally lost, when Doggett's cell phone rings. "So, the owner won't talk, huh?" Scully asks. Doggett sputters something about not knowing how she could have known that. "Smile, you're on TV," Scully tells him. Now that she's shed that pesky kid and is free to fly about the country at will, she's decided to come out to Los Angeles to see them. And she's at the L.A. field office with a man she thinks they're both going to want to meet.
