There was an episode a while back wherein Scully and Mulder investigate a
town for vampirism. I don't remember the particulars, but it is "narrated"
through the eyes of both characters, and the telling of the case is
influenced by the way they each see each other as well as other people.
For instance, the Sheriff, who appeared to Scully as handsome, appeared to
Mulder as a buck-toothed rube. Has anyone else seen this episode?
