Episode: The Beginning Episode Number: 6x01 Tagline: The Truth is Out There
Carpool Man: Hurry up! Uh, next time,
maybe take a leak before we leave work. Okay, Dipwads?
Carpool Man: Not you, too, Sandy? Sorry, man. You got to hold it till you get home. ---
AD Maslin: Agent Mulder . . . Agent
Mulder, I'm reading here a very pie-in-the-sky report about global domination
plans by vicious, long-clawed spacelings? Is there going to be data
to back this vague, omnibus account?
AD #2: These spacelings, Agent Mulder
. . . They weren't something I saw in Men in Black?
Mulder: Which we will prove now that
the X-Files have been reopened.
Mulder: Next time, I'll wear a clown suit and do balloon tricks. ---
Mulder: The only reason I was in there
was because you assured me there was a scientific basis for what we
CSM: I trumped up a story about a crazy Indian on the loose. Never underestimate the public's willingness to blame the Red Man for . . . anything they can't explain. ---
(Mulder is working again on piecing
together the burned files in his new office. Skinner walks in)
Mulder: Was there a vote?
Spender: Is that something for me?
Mulder: (giving a weak thumbs-up) Diana, back on your feet. I guess that's the only way you could stab me in the back. ---
Scully: Mulder, I just want to remind you that by not informing local PD we are in technical violation of state laws prohibiting contamination of a crime scene. (She realizes Mulder is not listening. Under her breath.) Why do I bother? ---
Mulder: Aw. Somebody broke a nail.
Mulder: There wasn't an attack. I think it was celebrating its birthday. ---
Gibson: It's not here. Why don't
you believe me when you're so afraid of me?
Mulder: I don't see there's any argument
here. You admit yourself that the crime report is a lie.
Engineer #1: Wake up, Homer.
Spender: Authorized officers and personnel
only. This is a closed area.
Gibson: You think they were butchers.
Mulder: How did you get in our car?
Gibson: You want to make me well but
you're just thinking about yourself and what you can learn from me.
(Mulder steps in a gooey puddle. They
kneel down and he dips his fingers in it.)
Mulder: There's something in there.
(Mulder reaches back in and drags out a large blob of tissue. It drops
to the floor and he kneels down to look at it closely. Mulder's cell
phone ringing scares them both and he jumps back up.) Mulder: (on phone)
Scully: (on phone) I don't know . . . I don't know, but I think we're on to something. We're on to something huge -- a link. Mulder: (on phone) I'll call that bet and raise you. ---
Spender: Mulder will be back. As long as he lives, he won't give up. ---
CSM: You can kill a man but you can't kill what he stands for . . . Not unless you first break his spirit. That's a beautiful thing to see. ---
Mulder: It would help if you'd shut
the door. It would make it harder for them to see that I'm totally disregarding
everything I was told.
Mulder: They can't take away the X-Files, Scully. They tried. ---
Mulder: So if that were true, that
would mean that Gibson is in some part extraterrestrial.
