* ImprobablyHighIQ: Mostly an inversion of an ImprobablyLowIQ, in the episode Roland, the title character is portrayed as someone with at least moderate disabilities (eg, can't operate door opening system, limited speech capabilities, passing the time in his group home with young child activities such as stickers), but is said by Scully to have an IQ of slightly above 70, which is in the borderline category like Forrest Gump, and he usually should be indestinguishable in everyday situations from everyone else. It is suggest that he has autism which could account for some of these factors as well as his head rolling, (though he doesn't have most autistic tendencies like problems with eye-contact), but the well-known tendency is for IQ tests to significantly ''underestimate'' IQ in people with autism.

First was this (Scully is shot mostly seated, wearing jumpsuits, or in "unflattering angles"), then Scully got abducted just to avoid it. (Partly done because the character officially couldn't get pregnant.) (see WrittenInAbsence.)
