Episode: The Sixth Extinction   Episode Number: 7x01   Tagline: The Truth is Out There
Working Title: The Syndicate


Scully: I will continue here as long as I can . . . as long as you are beset by the haunting illness which I saw consume your beautiful mind. What is this discovery I've made? How can I reconcile what I see with what I know? I feel this was meant not for me to find but for you . . . ---

Amina Ngebe: They'll take this as a sign to leave what you have found alone, a bad omen.
Scully: Caused by the ship out there?
Amina Ngebe: Mmm. Caused by God . . . who will be much less helpful than those men if we are to continue this work. ---

Scully: I feel you slipping away from me with every minute I fail here. What are the elusive meanings I cannot see that are hidden here? If I could understand it, know how it affected you, learn how to use its power to save you. ---

Dr. Barnes: This craft that's come ashore? Its extraterrestrial origins?
Scully: You don't even believe in that.
Dr. Barnes: Nor do you. But here we are.
Scully: I'm here only to help my partner. ---

Kritschgau (living in a dump): You know, I had a job . . . with a government pension coming and two years ago, Fox Mulder asked me to do him a favor -- blow the whistle on Uncle Sam's UFO propaganda mill. And all it got me was this swanky address. ---

Skinner: I don't know how long we can keep him out of that unit. We can be held responsible.
Kritschgau: You asked me to come down here. You better be prepared to accept the responsibility, Mr. Skinner. ---

Mulder: They're coming. ---

Mulder: She knows. (Fowley)
Skinner: You can read her mind?
Mulder: Yeah. We got to act fast.
Skinner: The doctor's on his way.
Mulder: No doctors. Get me Scully.
Skinner: I don't know where she is. ---

Mulder: What's causing this is alien. That's why my doctors can't help me.
Kritschgau: I don't believe in aliens, Agent Mulder. I think you know that.
Mulder: I do. That's why I need you. ---

Scully: I'm only here to help my friend.
Dr. Barnes: You can't help him. You're wasting your time reading it.
Scully: It has power.
Dr. Barnes: It IS power . . . the ultimate power. Your friend just got too close. ---

Kritschgau: We developed this to test remote-viewing capabilities. It works much like a card trick. You tap the monitor where the saucer image appears when it appears or when you think it does. Okay? Mulder: (half-hearted attempt at making a joke) Who ya gonna call? ---

Primitive African Man: (to Scully) Some truths are not for you. ---

Scully: Turn us around.
Amina Ngebe: Not back to the beach.
Scully: No . . . I'm going home. ---

Skinner: I know what you're doing.
Kritschgau: I'm trying to help him.
Skinner: No, this isn't about him -- it's about you, it's about revenge against the government for trying to destroy your life.
Kritschgau: I was destroyed to protect what Mulder knew all along. Now he's the proof-- he's the X-File.
Skinner: We can't just keep shooting him full of drugs. It's gone too far!
Kritschgau: How far should it go?! How far would Mulder go?! ---

Scully: I have been on a plane for 22 hours. I have to see him. ---

Scully: He's not dying.
Skinner: I'm afraid it's true.
Scully: He's not dying. He is more alive than he has ever been. He's more alive than his body can withstand and what's causing it may be extraterrestrial in origin. ---

Skinner: They're going to deny you access.
Scully: Maybe as his partner... but not as his doctor. (She turns and leaves the office.) ---

Scully: Mulder, it's me. I know that you can hear me. If you can just give me some sign. I want you to know where I've been . . . what I found. I think that, if you know, that you could find a way to hold on. I need you to hold on. I found a key . . . the key . . . to every question that has ever been asked. It's a puzzle . . . but the pieces are there for us to put together and I know that they can save you if you can just hold on. Mulder . . . please. Hold on.
