Seth Green Is In This One (season one, episode one)

“Deep Throat” – 1×01

Episode Summary:
Mulder and Scully investigate the disappearance of an Air Force Lt. Colonel named Robert Budahas, despite a warning from a mysterious figure that they should stay away from the case. After seeing mysterious lights flying over an airbase and interviewing the suddenly-returned Lt. Col., Mulder sneaks onto the military base, only to encounter a UFO at close range — and then have his memory of the experience erased by military doctors. Scully rescues Mulder from the base, and they return to FBI headquarters empty-handed.

The beginning

Military police are storming a house! There’s a…naked shivering man with bad skin!

Ooh, Seth Green is in this one!
He’s not the naked shivering guy.
