Skinner: "In short Agent Scully, it is your responsibility to see that these cases are by the book."
Scully: "I understand, however conventional investigation of these cases may decrease the rate of success." ---

Mulder: "Do you think they would have taken me more seriously if I had worn the grey suit?" ---

(Old man who Tooms was going to stay with): "It's kinda cramped down there, but I'm sure you can squeeze in there." Tooms: "Yes, I'm sure I can." (accompanied by the trademark Tooms creepy smile.) ---

Mulder: (to Tooms) "Excuse me! Could you help me find my dog? He's a Norwegian Elkhound. His name is Heinrich. I use him to hunt Moose." ---

Scully: "Can you determine the cause of death? My instinct says that burial in cement is murder." ---

Scully: "Mulder, It's getting a little ripe in here, don't you think?"
Mulder (pulls air freshener out of glove box): "Pine scented." ---

Mulder: "No, you'd be in trouble just sitting in this car. And I'd hate to see you carry an official reprimand in your career file because of me."
Scully: "Fox --"
Mulder (laughing): "I -- I even made my parents call me Mulder. Mulder.
Scully: "Mulder, I wouldn't put myself on the line for anybody but you."
Mulder: "If there's an iced tea in that bag, it could be love."
Scully: "It must be fate, Mulder. Root beer."
Mulder: "huuh!"
Scully: "You're delirious. Go home and get some sleep." ---

Skinner: "Agent Scully, you wouldn't be lying to me would you?"
Scully: "Sir, I would expect you to place the same trust in me as I do in you." ---

Mulder: "You can get the next mutant." ---

Skinner: "Have you read this report? Do you believe them?"
CSM: "Of course I do."
