In a rare seasonal X-Files episode, Scully and her mother pay a pre-Yuletide visit to the home of Scully's brother, Bill Jr. (Pat Skipper). Upon arrival, Scully answers the phone and hears a plea for help -- from a woman who sounds eerily like her dead sister, Melissa (Melinda McGraw). The mystery deepens with the arrival of a detective (John Pyper-Ferguson) investigating an apparent suicide, the "victim's" young daughter (who looks just like a young Scully), and a brace of sinister Men in Black. Part one of a two-part story, "Christmas Carol" was written by Vince Gilligan, John Shiban, and Frank Spotnitz; the episode first aired December 7, 1997.
