Orderly: What's wrong with him?
Dr. Cabrera: What's wrong with him is he's going to die. ---

Skinner: (voiceover) Every minute of every day we choose. Who we are. Who we forgive. Who we defend and protect. To choose a side or to walk the line. To play the middle. To straddle the fence between what is and what should be. This was the course I chose. Trying to find the delicate balance of interests that can never exist. Choosing by not choosing. Defending a center which cannot hold. So death chose for me. ---

Nurse: Do you remember what happened?
Skinner: I was boxing. I must've gotten tagged.
Nurse: Yes, you did. At least you didn't get your ear bit off. That's something, right? ---

Electronic Voice: Walter . . . Skinner.
Skinner: Who is this?
Electronic Voice: Have . . . you heard . . . the news? It's . . . in . . . you.
Skinner: What is this?
Electronic Voice: You . . . have . . . 24 hours . . . to go.
Skinner: What is this? What do you want?
Electronic Voice: You . . . are . . . already dead. ---

Dr. Plant: Well, the good news is . . . your dilation's back to normal. Plus you still have both your ears. (Skinner chuckles politely.)
Skinner: I heard that one. ---

Dr. Plant: I'm going to release you. But I suggest that you rethink the boxing. You're not 20 anymore. ---

(Mulder finds Skinner lying on the couch in his dark office.)
Skinner: What is it, Agent Mulder?
Mulder: I just, uh . . . I thought I'd poke my head in and say hey.
Skinner: (weakly) Hey. ---

Mulder: (to Scully) He's going to tell you he's all right.
Skinner: That's because there's nothing wrong with me. ---

Skinner: (sarcastically) Oh. This is about you.
Mulder: Or about the X-Files.
Skinner: You are so paranoid, Mulder. You're not even on the X-Files anymore.
Scully: I know. But you are. You still supervise them.
Mulder: What happened today? Anything out of the ordinary?
Skinner: I'm not going to play this game. ---

Mulder: This morning, you woke up . . .
Skinner: I woke up.
Mulder: Alone?
Skinner: Yes. Alone. ---

Scully: Wait a second. Back up. It can't be. That's Kenneth Orgel. An advisor to a Senate subcommittee on ethics and new technology.
Skinner: He's a scientist?
Scully: A physicist. Very well known, as far as physicists go. ---

Scully: Sir, if this man poisoned you, you should be off your feet and under a doctor's care.
Skinner: If this man poisoned me I'm going to put a gun to his head, find out why and ask him how he's going to make me well. ---

Tunisian Man: (something Arabic and angry)
Mulder: Yeah, so's your mom. ---

Tunisian Man: (something Arabic and angry)
Mulder: Hey, give it a rest, huh?! ---

Scully: In fact, I'm not even sure what I'm looking for.
Dr. Plant: Well, you're lucky. He's on a government HMO. No one's even bothered to handle his samples yet. ---

Mulder: (looking at the hairs from the wig) Don't hate me 'cause I'm beautiful. ---

Scully: You've been our ally more times than I can say.
Skinner: Not the kind of ally that I could have been. ---

Senator Matheson: Your friend is already dead.
Mulder: I don't believe that.
Senator Matheson: If you pursue this, Fox, they will kill you.
Mulder: Not before I expose you and your role in this. ---

Mulder: I will stop this!
Senator Matheson: It's too late, Fox. It's too late! ---

Skinner: So you still think this is about you? About the X-Files?
Mulder: Yes. Yes, I do. And I have an idea who may be behind all this. But I'd need your authority to continue the investigation. Skinner: I have neither the authority nor the will to allow your continued inquiry into this matter. You'll perform your duties as directed by AD Kersh and only AD Kersh.
Scully: Sir?
Skinner: This matter's closed, Agents. Am I clear? ---

Skinner: I've been expecting you to show up.
Unseen Man: You know I can push the button any time.
Skinner: What do you want from me? What's this about, Krycek?
Krycek: All in good time.
