Cop: "I know it's not The Silence of the Lambs . . . it's what we do." ---

(Talking about Deep Throat)
Mulder: "You think he does it because he gets off on it?"
Scully: "No, I think he does it because you do." ---

Deep Throat: "Calling it a night Mr. Mulder?"
Mulder: "My mother usually likes me home before the street lights come on." ---

(Speaking to Deep Throat)
Mulder: "Y'know from day one this has been on your terms. I've gone along, been the dutiful son. So maybe this time we can cut through the Obi-Wan Kenobi bit and save me the trouble." ---

Scully: "OK, Mulder, but I'm warning you. If this is monkey pee. You're on your own." ---

Scully: "I know by now to trust your instincts."
Mulder: "Why? Nobody else does." ---

MIB: "Your cellular phone has been ringing off the hook."
Mulder: "I'm a popular guy. Why don't you answer it for me."
MIB: "Oh, I don't like talking on the phone. I have this thing about unsecured lines." ---

Deep Throat: "Trust no one." ---

Mulder: "I'm not going to give up. I can't give up. Not as long as the truth is out there."
