Pilot

Special Agent Dana Scully is partnered with Special Agent Fox Mulder to validate his work on a special project called The X-Files. While he is a believer in the paranormal, fuelled by a lost memory where his sister was abducted by aliens; she is a scientist and prefers to look for rational, logical explanations. Their first case takes them to Oregon, to investigate the unsolved murders of several High School classmates, whom "Spooky" Mulder believes have been experimented on by aliens.

Squeeze

One of Scully's friends from the FBI academy, now working in the Violent Crimes Unit asks her to assist him on a homicide investigation involving no clear MO or point of entry, with the hope that it will save her career and Scully accepts, while finally realising what a joke she and Mulder are considered to be. Mulder reviews the case and he notices that similar homicides occurred in 1903, 1933 and 1963. When he helps capture Eugene Tooms, Mulder mentions the other murders and his credibility is weakened.
