Thrown off of a 30-story building by mobsters to whom he owed money, Henry Weems (Willie Garson) not only survives the fall, but walks away completely unharmed. Soon afterward, one of Henry's would-be murderers is himself killed in a bizarre fashion. With only one clue to go by -- an artificial eye, made to order for the uncannily lucky Weems -- Mulder and Scully conduct an investigation which leads them to a potential fatal "Rube Goldberg" device. First telecast December 12, 1999, "The Goldberg Variation" was written by Jeffrey Bell.
