Mulder: "I was a dead man. Now I'm back." ---

Mulder: "There are truths out there that aren't on that tape." ---

Scully: I went to your father's funeral. I told your mother that you'd be ok.
Mulder: How did you know?
Scully: I just knew. ---

Scully: "Whatever happened to Klemper?"
Langly: "He's still here. Living very well at the expense of the American taxpayer." ---

Frohike: "Unbelievable! We thought you were history!"
Mulder: "You're gonna have to wait a little bit longer for my video collection, Frohike." ---

WMM: "This is not a profession for men who make mistakes. My god, you presume to make us believe and simply fix it with enough bullets?" ---

Scully [to Klemper]: "History may be the only justice you'll ever know." ---

WMM: "What did you tell him, Victor?"
Klemper: "I told him that you were the most venal man I ever met." ---

Scully: "What do you think your father would have been doing here?"
Mulder: "I dunno . . . but he never came home wearing a miner's cap." ---

Scully: "What do you think?"
Mulder: "I'd like to try door number one, Monty." ---

Mulder: "I think with a crow bar and a small nuclear device it might be able to get through one of these things." ---

Mulder: "Lots of files."
Scully: "Lots and *lots* of files!" ---

WMM [to Mulder]: "You've become your father." ---

Mulder: "Is there more?"
WMM: "More than you'll ever know." ---

Mulder: "You'd be surprised what's not on the map in this country. And what the government will do to keep it that way." ---

Skinner: "What do you possibly hope to find Agent Mulder?"
Mulder: "Why they killed my father, what happened to my sister, and what they did to Agent Scully." ---

CSM: "What did I tell you, Mr. Skinner. I don't negotiate. Especially with punks like you who think they can bluff me." ---

CSM: "What is this?"
Skinner: "This is where you pucker up and *kiss my ass*!" ---

Scully: "I've heard the truth, Mulder. Now what I want are the answers."
