What are your 3 favorite episodes? I meant to go with 1 but I just can't.

I would have to say "Bad Blood" in season 6 I think it was. The one where the little kid was a vampire and they showed it from both Mulder and Scullys viewpoints. It really cracked me up and I laughed the whole way thru it.

Also loved the one about the Alien who came to play baseball.(its called "For the love of the Game in season 3 I think, not for sure.) When the lightening flashed and you saw the alien reflection in the bus window, my NT daughter screamed. And the way the guy kept passing out when he saw it was reallly an alien is what would really happen
(in theoryas a way for the mind to protect itself supposedly.)

Also the "Cops" episode. At first I was really mad because I thought they had pre-empted X-Files for a stupid "Cops" episode. When Scully says "Because the FBI has nothing to hide" I really laughed.

I particularly enjoyed the one where there was a journalist writing an account of Scully and Mulder's adventures (Charles Nelson Riley played the character, I believe). It had a guest cameo by Alex Trebek.

I also enjoyed the one where Scully and Mulder pretended to be a young married couple who moved into a gated community, Arcadia, where people had been mysteriously disappearing. They went as "Laura and Rob Pietre" (which is a gag in itself). And she kept calling him "poopy head" as her "pet" name. Ah, homeowner's associations. I often suspected....

My favourite episode was "The Amazing Maleeni" (season 7, episode 8 ), about a young magician who took revenge on a mobster. It was very funny and had one surprising plot twist after the other, right until the end. Another favourite was "Field Trip" (season 6, episode 21), an episode consisting largely of hallucinations caused by fungi. "Tempus Fugit" (season 4, episode 17) was also very spooky, about an alien abduction from an airplane in mid-flight.

My favorite humorous episode was the one with mobsters going after the world's luckiest man. I believe it was called "Goldberg Variations".

My favorite scary episode was the one about the cursed doll, "Chinga". I think Stephen King wrote the script for that one.

I like the one with Pruitt Taylor Vince as the photographer who lobotomizes people with an icepick because he believes they have some kind of "unrest" in their heads. Turns out he has had a death wish the entire time because of the "unrest" in his head too.

The episode is really scary but very painful and sad too.

The episode is called "The Unnatural", and it is also one of my favorites. I'm also fond of "Clyde Bruckman's Final Repose", "Bad Blood", "D.P.O.", and yes, "Home".

The one with the green flying swarm of virus/insect thingies which get in through the tiniest of cracks etc, after a huge old tree is chopped down in a deep forest by aggressive logging. And the stretchy character coming through drain holes.

I like the earlier episodes in general because I think it makes a difference that the two stars still liked each other and looked so soft and innocent, whereas later on they look so hard and bitter or cynical etc.

"Roland" for the decent portrayal of someone with Autistic Disorder.

I like the aforementioned "icepick" episode too.

Mine too - it's called Je Souhaite, and my favourite bit is when Scully is putting yellow dust on the invisible man.

I also like the 'sit in a coffee shop and watch the world go by' ambition :D

I don't know the name, but there was a killer called "pusher" who used telekinesis to kill his victims. Also that mutant who hibernated in a wall and ate livers. Those were both good episodes.
