Mulder (singing): "Happy Birthday dear Special Agent Dana Katherine Scully, Happy Birthday to You . . . I didn't know it was your birthday, Scully." (keeps clapping)
Scully: "Mulder, you've never remembered my birthday in the four years I've known you."
Mulder: "That's the way I like to celebrate. It's every four years, like dog years."
Scully: "Dog years? Thank you."
Mulder: (smiling) "You're welcome. Oh, I got something for you."
Scully: "You've got to be kidding me."
Mulder: "It's just something that reminded me of you."
Scully: "What, an alien implant?"
Mulder: "Two, actually. I made them into earrings." (gives her a keychain)
Scully: "Apollo 11."
Mulder: (smiling) "Read the back."
Scully: "Commemorating Apollo 11 and the mission to the moon, July 1969. I'm touched."
Mulder: "It's um. . ."
Sharon Graffia: "Excuse me, are you Scully and Mulder?"
Scully: "Oh, promise me this isn't leading into something really embarrassing." ---

Scully: "You sure know how to make a girl feel special on her birthday." ---

Mulder: "Nine minutes, Scully. Do you remember the last time you remember seeing nine minutes?" ---

Mulder: "Does your policy cover the acts of extraterrestials?" ---

Scully: "Are you accusing these men of covering evidence?"
Mulder: "These men? No. These men are trained to identify moving parts: hydraulics, electronics. They're trained to reconstruct those parts in the past to arrive at the present but they can't do that because someone has stolen the past from them. Nine minutes of it. Nine minutes that became a lifetime to those passengers and now for their families. Someone has got to figure out what happened in those nine minutes. Somehow we've got to get that back." ---

Mike: "They've got their hands full."
Mulder: "Yeah, coming up with all that inconclusive evidence." ---

Diver: "Have you worked at this depth before?"
Mulder: "Not exactly."
Diver: "What exactly is your experience?"
Mulder: "Once I, uh . . . I got a quarter off of the deep end of the 'Y' pool . . ."
