Arbutus Ray (played by Patience Cleveland) was a nurse at a hospital in California where Samantha Mulder fled to after escaping from April Air Force Base in 1979. Ray had a vision of Samantha as dead, but no one believed her. Ray said that a group of men in suits had come after her, including one who smoked, but Samantha vanished before they could retrieve her. Ray relayed her story to Dana Scully and Harold Piller while Mulder waited near the car. (TXF: "Closure")
