Mulder: ". . . failed to mention on his INS application that he spent the better part of his 20's in an insane asylum." ---

Scully: "He was arrested last week for the serial murders of at least seven men." ---

Mulder: "You thought all they (Uzbekistan) produced were great hockey players." ---

Scully: "The level of violence and overkill here would suggest the work of a very angry individual."
Mulder: "Or individuals. If you count the spirit Mastau says possessed him during the murders." ---

Mastau: "Leave me alone."
Scully: "You have a nice soft bunk, sir. Why aren't you using it?"
Mulder: "Cause he's been working. Haven't you, John?" ---

Patterson: "So what is it Mulder? Little green men? Evil spirits? Hounds of Hell?"
Mulder: "Scully, this is Bill Patterson. He runs the investigative support unit out of Quantico."
Scully: "Yes, I know. Behavioral Science, you wrote the book. It's an honor, sir."
Patterson: "Is that what you think? That the suspect is possessed by some dark spirit?"
Scully: (smiling) "No, not at all, sir."
Patterson: (eyeing Mulder) "Strange company you keep, then."
Mulder: (laughing to himself) "That's what always amazed me about you, Bill. How you never fit your own profile. No one would ever guess how really mean-spirited you are." ---

Mulder: "Patterson never liked me."
Scully: "I thought you were considered the fair-haired boy when you joined the bureau."
Mulder: "Not by Patterson."
Scully: "Why not?"
Mulder: "Didn't want to dirty my knees. Couldn't quite cast myself in the role of the dutiful student."
Scully: "You mean you couldn't worship him."
Mulder: "Something like that, yeah." ---

(Scully gets spooked by a cat)
Scully: "Now our guys must have locked it in here."
Mulder: (Look under the bed at cat) "Pss-pss." (Cat hisses at him and ducks into hole in wall) "Uh no, he's obviously got his own key to the place." ---

Mulder: "I've got a few theories, I'm just trying to stitch them together right now."
Patterson: "With your face stuck in a library book!"
Mulder: "You said it yourself, Bill. If you want to know the artist look at the art. I'm finally agreeing with you." ---

Patterson: "I have to say . . . I'm really disappointed in you."
Mulder: "Well I wouldn't want to disappoint you by not disappointing you." ---

Scully: "Look, when I couldn't reach you I went to your apartment. I saw your new wallpaper." ---

Skinner: Are you worried about Agent Mulder?
Scully: (Obviously scared and upset) No sir.
Skinner: Off the record.
Scully: (Silence . . . The look . . .)
Skinner: So am I. ---

Mulder: "It's Nemhauser. But you already knew that, didn't you?"
Patterson: "What is this?"
Mulder: "You killed him, Bill. When he suspected it was you. You killed him."
Patterson: "Are you out of your mind?"
Mulder: "Not me. Not now." ---

Patterson: "My advice to you Scully -- let Mulder do what he has to do. Don't get in his way and don't try to hold him back . . . because you won't be able to." ---

Mulder: "We work in the dark. We do what we can to battle with the evil that would otherwise destroy us. But, a man's character's fate is defined as not a choice but a calling. Yet sometimes the weight of this burden causes us to falter, breaching the fragile fortress of our mind, allowing the monsters without to turn within and we are left alone, staring into the abyss . . . into the laughing face of madness." ---

Mulder: "What he really meant is if you want to catch a monster you have to become one yourself."
