Recap: The X Files S 07 E 06 The Goldberg Variation


  • AB Negative: Richie has a rare blood type, B-negative. And he's CMV negative. Cytomegalovirus, as Scully says.
  • Billy Needs An Organ: Richie has a hepatitis and he needs liver transplant. (Scully diagnosed him just by looking at him.) Alternatively, he could get in a special experimental treatment program in England. He's got a rare blood type and further complications.
  • Hey, It's That Guy!: Shia LeBeouf is the ill kid, while Weems is Carrie's Pet Homosexual from Sex and the City.
  • Littlest Cancer Patient: The ill kid, Richie. He likes baseball and is kinda cute.
  • Rube Goldberg Hates Your Guts: Henry Weems was an extremely lucky man. However, super extreme streaks of luck he experienced manipulated other people's luck, resulting in rather bizarre ends for them.
