The Goldberg Variation

Season 7 Episode 6

Next up, a rather ‘spin off’ episode where Mulder and Scully meet the worlds luckiest man. He’s only trying to raise money to get some kid an operation, but ends up getting gangs and all sorts after him. Though without lifting his finger, he manages to thwart anyone getting in his way. Mulder seems to feel the knock on effects when attempting to fix someone’s plumbing, only to make it ten times worse… then fall through the floor into the apartment below. However after the gangs get a little pissed off with his refusal to die, they kidnap him, attempt to torture the lucky guy only to get involved in a rather elaborate accident. Scully doesn’t believe this guys luck and never does during the episode, despite all the rather ‘lucky things’ that happen.
