The Great Mutato loved Cher. He listened to her music all the time, playing it loud and dancing while intruding on other peoples' homes. He also had a shrine dedicated to her in his basement home, and enjoyed her film Mask. To celebrate his entry into the real world, Mulder and Scully took The Great Mutato to a Cher performance. Even Mulder and Scully had a good time dancing together at the show. (TXF: "The Post-Modern Prometheus")
