* TraumaCongaLine: Skinner is subjected to this. He faces a possible divorce, wakes up after a one-night stand to see the woman he slept with dead, is pinned as a possible suspect in her murder, temporarily loses his job due to higher-ups questioning his reliability and learns that his soon-to-be divorced wife was struck by a car. Yet, he does not crack from all this stress.
* WhamShot:
** Skinner and Mulder are discussing the former's visions of an old woman in an interrogation room, with the next scene showing who is behind the two-way mirror. It's the Cigarette Smoking Man.
** When Judy calls the assassin who killed the prostitute, she pretends to meet him at the Ambassador Hotel for money. This is secretly a plan for Mulder and Scully to catch him, but the next scene casts doubt on that. The camera cuts to the assassin in his car, with the outside coming into view. It's Mulder, Scully and Judy making the deal, indicating that he knows that they are trying to do.
