Working Title: The Ghosts That Stole Christmas, The Ghosts Who Stole Christmas


Mulder: I almost gave up on you.
Scully: Sorry. Checkout lines were worse than rush hour on the 95. If I heard "Silent Night" one more time I was going to start taking hostages. ---

Scully: Mulder, tell me you didn't call me out here on Christmas Eve to go ghost busting with you.
Mulder: Technically speaking they're called apparitions. ---

Mulder: You don't believe in ghosts?
Scully: That surprises you?
Mulder: Well . . . Yeah. I thought everybody believed in ghosts. ---

Scully: Mulder, if it were any other night I might let you talk me into it but the halls are decked and I got to go. ---

Mulder: There's nothing to be afraid of.
Scully: I'm not afraid, okay?
Mulder: Ghosts are benevolent entities. (Sound of chains clanking from above.)
Mulder: Mostly.
Scully: You are not scaring me, Mulder. ---

Mulder: Tell me you're not afraid.
Scully: All right. I'm afraid . . . but it's an irrational fear. ---

Maurice: You drink? Take drugs?
Mulder: No.
Maurice: Get high?
Mulder: No.
Maurice: Are you overcome by the impulse to make everyone believe you? ---

Maurice: You've probably convinced yourself you've seen aliens. You know why you think you see the things you do? Mulder: Because I have seen them? ---

Scully: You don't know me. And you don't live here. This isn't your house.
Lyda: You wouldn't think so, the way I'm being treated.
Scully: Well, then why is all the furniture covered?
Lyda: We're having the house painted.
Scully: Well then where's your Christmas tree?!
Lyda: We're Jewish. Boo. ---

Mulder: What happened to the star-crossed lovers?
Lyda: Oh, let me tell you the romance is the first thing to go. ---

Mulder: It's you. You're Lyda, and that was Maurice. But you've aged.
Lyda: I hope your partner finds you a lot more charming than I do.---

Lyda: The bodies under the floor -- maybe that was just some kind of Jungian symbolism. Or maybe . . . there's a secret lovers' pact.
Mulder: (sighing with a smile) We're not lovers.
Lyda: And this isn't a pure science. But you're both so attractive and there'll be a lot of time to work that out. (holds a gun out to him) Go ahead, take it. ---

Maurice: Do you realize how seriously disturbed that man is? ---

Scully: Mulder . . . None of that really happened out there tonight . . . That was all in our heads, right?
Mulder: I-it must have been.
Scully: Mmm. Not that, uh, my only joy in life is proving you wrong.
Mulder: When have you proved me wrong?
Scully: Well . . . Why else would you want me out there with you?
Mulder: You didn't want to be there?
Mulder: Oh, that's, um . . . That's self-righteous and . . . narcissistic of me to say, isn't it?
Scully: No, I mean . . . Maybe I did want to be out there with you.
