Mulder: It sounds to me like that's witchcraft or maybe sorcery that
you're looking for there.
Scully: No, I don't think it's witchcraft, Mulder, or sorcery. I've
had a look around and I don't see any evidence of anything that warrants
that kind of suspicion.
Mulder: Maybe you don't know what you're looking for.
Scully: Like evidence of conjury or the black arts, or shamanism, divination,
wicca or any kind of pagan or neo-pagan practices. Charms, cards, familiars,
bloodstones, or hex signs or any kind of ritual tableaux associated
with the occult, santeria, voudoun, macumba, or any high or low magic.
Mulder: Marry me. ---
Mulder: Hey, morning, sunshine.
Mulder: Yeah. I was a little worried about you. ---
Mulder: You didn't rent a convertible,
Mulder: Are you aware of the statistics of decapitation?
Scully: Mulder, I'm hanging up. I'm turning off my cell-phone. I'm back
in the office on Monday.
Mulder: You shouldn't uh . . . talk and drive at the same time either.
Are you aware of the statistics hello? ---
Mulder: Mulder . . . (picking up the
phone watching an unseen video with lots of moaning)
Scully: Mulder, it's me.
Mulder: I thought you were on vacation . . .
Scully: I am . . . I'm . . . I'm up in Maine.
Mulder: Huh, I thought you didn't want to be disturbed. You wanted to
get out of your head for a few days.
Scully: I don't. I . . . I mean, I do. I . . . What are you watching,
Mulder: It's the World's Deadliest Swarms. Um, you said you were gonna
be unreachable. What's going on? ---
Mulder: Maybe there's a scientific
Scully: A scientific explanation?
Mulder: Yeah, a medical cause. Something called Corea.
Scully: Dancing sickness . . .
Mulder: Yeah, St. Vitus' Dance. Affects groups of people, causing unexpected
outbursts of, uh . . . uncontrollable jerks and spasms.
Scully: Yeah, but it hasn't been seen or diagnosed since the Middle
Ages . . .
Mulder: You're obviously not a fan of American Bandstand.
Scully: Thanks for the help (hangs up)
Chief: That your partner?
Chief: I'm sorry for eavesdropping but maybe he's got some insight on
Chief: I see . . . ---
Scully: Well, maybe we need to keep
our minds open to... extreme possibilities.
Chief: Okay, but aren't you on vacation? ---
(Answering the cell-phone) Scully:
Mulder: Well, hey! I thought you weren't answering your cell-phone.
Scully: Then why'd you call? ---
Scully: Mulder, are there any references
in occult literature to... objects that have the power to... direct
human behavior? Mulder: What... types of objects?
Scully: Uhm, like a doll for instance?
Mulder: You mean like Chuckie?
Scully: (Embarrassed) Yeah, kinda like that. ---
Mulder: You didn't find a talking
doll, did you Scully?
Scully: No, no... course not, uh...
Mulder: I would suggest that you should check the back of the doll for
a.. a... plastic ring with a string on it. That would be my first...
Mulder: Yeah. Hey, does this have
something to do about this case you were working on?
Scully: That case... Oh... yes. Yes, it does.
Mulder: Did you solve it?
Scully: Me? No. No.... I was... I was...on vacation. Just getting out
of my own head for a few days. What about you? Did you... get anything
done while I was gone?
Mulder: Oh God, I mean it's amazing what I can accomplish without incessant
meddling and questioning into everything I do. It's just... (Two pencils
land in Mulder's lap from up above. Scully looks up, and there are 100
pencils stuck into the ceiling! She looks down again at Mulder, who's
Mulder: There's got to be an explanation...
Scully: Oh, I don't know. I think some things are better left unexplained.
