Scully and Mulder travel to a small town when there are reports that five babies were recently born with vestigial tails. Four of the five women were artificially inseminated at the same clinic but the fifth claims to have had sex with Luke Skywalker. Scully thinks it's all nonsense but their focus soon falls on Eddie Van Blundht, a janitor at the fertility clinic. His father had been a circus performer but Eddie seems to have another power: to take the appearance of anyone around him. Things get interesting when he decides to pretend he's Mulder.

Writer Vince Gilligan
said that originally he wanted wings to be the "deformity" that the babies were born with, because he was afraid that tails wouldn't be very cute. Tails proved much easier to create digitally, though, so the wings were changed to tails in the script. See more
Van Blundht said that the name/ silent "h" is Dutch but the Dutch do not have a silent "H" between a "D" and a "T" in the language...In fact "Van Blundht" in any form, isn't a Dutch name at all..... Closed thing to that name is "Blunt" which in The Netherlands refers to special paper (flavored) to roll weed. See more
