 Quotes
Stoner #2: What would you do if you were a werewolf?
Stoner #1: I'd get high all the time?

Dana Scully: We've been given another case, Mulder. It has a monster in it.

Fox Mulder: Since we've been away, much of the unexplained has been explained.

Fox Mulder: Scully, I gave up profiling before I gave up monsters. You've seen one serial killer, you've seen them all.

Guy Mann: Now, this model comes with 3,000 gigabertz of pixelbits.

Dr. Rumanovitch: It's easier to believe in monsters out there in the world than to accept that the real monsters dwell within us.

Fox Mulder: Okay, I'll do it, I'll kill you.
Guy Mann: Thanks mister, you're like the only nice person I've ever met.

Fox Mulder: So you're agreeing with me?
Dana Scully: No! You're bat-crap crazy!

Guy Mann: My transformation wasn't just physical but mental. I heard a voice in my head. My voice. I became conscious of my own self-consciousness, and then I had my very first thought: I'm naked! I became overcome by some irrational need to cover up.

Guy Mann: Alas, I was human again. I went back to work. But now that I had a job, all I could think about was how much I hated my job. But I was too overcome with human fear to quit. How would I pay my bills? Without a job, I'd... I'd never get a loan and start a mortgage, whatever that is. Already I was terrified I wasn't saving enough for my retirement. And what else was I supposed to do?

Guy Mann: You see, now I possess the one Darwinian advantage that humans have over other animals: the ability to BS my way through anything. I mean, it's better than camouflage!
Fox Mulder: You wouldn't happen to be, uh, BSing me right now all about this, would you?

Fox Mulder: Did you lose someone recently?
Guy Mann: Yeah, myself.

Dana Scully: I think, maybe, my phone isn't working right 'cuz guys don't send me pictures of their junk on it.

Darin Morgan did it again (8/10)
By Jack on 2017-09-07

Darin Morgan is a myth for any X-Files fan. He gave the series a brand new dimension when he wrote the famous episode "Humbug" from season 2. His episodes were funny, but always in a very profound and interesting ways.
I am very happy to say that he has done it again. "Mulder & Scully Meet the Were-Monster" is an excellent episode.

STORY
The story itself is brilliant. The episode tells the story of a monster who becomes human. That alone is a very original idea.

THEME
The theme alone is also brilliant. By becoming a man, the monster starts to go through the purpose of life and this provides us a reflection on our own.

SUMMARY
I give this episode an 8 out of 10. Superb. After the very bad introduction to this new season ("My Struggle"), it feels damn good to see this one.
