On Christmas Eve, Mulder convinces Scully to put aside her gift wrapping and stake out a reputed haunted house. But they discover a pair of lovelorn spectres living inside the house who are determined to prove how lonely the holidays can be.

This ep had a great cast. The intro was incredible, too: What an excellent scene between M&S sitting in the cars.

However, I think they could have done a lot more with this ep. I think when they got into the middle of this ep when they were doing the character evaluations... I think the evaluations were a little off such that I didn't buy it. At the beginning of the ep, there is a theme that M&S are lonely. Lonely for each other, the way I read it. However, then we get into things like how Lyda says "you just want to prove him wrong". If she had said that in season 5 or earlier, I think it would have been more true. I'm just not buying what the ghosts have to say regarding their feelings at this point in time.

Other than that, good ep.

"5"

Another fantastic episode. I love how the ghosts try to play on M&S's fears, I love the snappy dialogue. THis is an instant xf classic for me.

I gave it a 2. Disappointingly un-spooky, for a good old-fashioned tale about a haunted house.

Excellent episode, we had a couple of great stars in Edward Asner & Lily Tomlin and I loved that they were trying to give insight into the relationship and personalities of Mulder and Scully. And we finally get Mulder and Scully exchanging gifts at the end. And we continue to wonder who stole Scully's car keys, so what if Mulder took them, Scully wanted to be there anyways because she loves spending time with Mulder.

Probably the best Christmas episode ever made!
