Mulder doubts there are any coy-wolves in Eastwick Connecticut, but there are definitely coy-wolves in the area, first the police officers confirm the coy-wolves walk right into town, Second, all forests in Connecticut are suspected to be populated by Coy-wolf populations, and heavy ones at that. Almost all Eastern Coyotes are at least 30% wolf and 10% dog and are classified as coy-wolves. Mulder should just be doubting the attack was by a coy-wolf. See more »

Dana Scully: [sighs] I just hope that it's over.
Fox Mulder: I only hope that it is, too.
Dana Scully: [after a long pause] That woman went up in flames.

Dana Scully: Maybe it was the gates of hell.
[pauses and takes a deep breath]
Dana Scully: Let's get out of this town, Mulder.
