X-FILES EPISODE FEATURES PLASTIC PINK FLAMINGO
In the X-Files episode entitled "Arcadia", a plastic pink flamingo made it's acting debut. Muldar and Scully were undercover in a gated community investigating a series of missing persons who were suspected of being murdered. They were posing as Rob and Laura Petry.
It seems that anyone who broke the highly restricted rules of the neatly manicured gated community was killed by a strange creature that spontaneously formed out of the garbage from the landfill that this community was built on top of. The leader of the community could summon the creature to take care of those who broke the rules.
Muldar, in blatant disregard for the regulations, placed a plastic pink flamigo on the lawn.
