Mulder: "Okay, I'm going to take my left hand and reach into my pocket and get my ID, okay? Just don't shoot me. I got shot once and I didn't much care for it . . ." ---

Scully: "Hey . . . How you feeling?"
Mulder: "Like I got a bad case of freezer burn." ---

Scully: "Thanks for ditching me . . ." ---

Scully: "Did you find what you were looking for?"
Mulder: (whispering) "No . . . no. But I found something I'd thought I'd lost. Faith to keep looking . . ."
