Recap: The X Files S 06 E 02 Drive


  • Ambiguously Jewish: Once again, an anti-Semitic character suggests that Mulder is Jewish.
  • Asshole Victim: Patrick Crump.
  • Conspiracy Theorist: Patrick Crump believes in a Jewish conspiracy.
    MULDER: Well, on behalf of the international Jewish conspiracy I just need to inform you that we're... almost out of gas.
  • Hero Stole My Bike: Mulder is forced to "borrow" a car from a random guy at the pump. Unusually for the trope, he's held responsible and AD Kersh chews him for it.
  • Hey, It's That Guy!: It's Hal!!! Or rather Heisenberg who plays Patrick Crump.
    • It's his performance from this episode that convinced Vince Gilligan that Bryan Cranston could play a dark, serious character.
  • Monster of the Week: A case not connected to mythology, but it was found out that the government and the army were to be blamed for the mysterious disease.
  • Shaggy Dog Story
  • Your Head Asplode: Your head will explode through your ear if you don't drive - and drive faster - in the right direction. Ew.
