Episode: The Goldberg Variation Episode Number: 7x06 Tagline: The Truth is Out There
Joe Cutrona: Let's make this interesting. I'm raising you 15 large.
Henry: That's a straight flush, right? Beginner's luck. ---
Henry: $100,000 is all I need. Sorry. I had fun, though. Where can I cash out? ---
Guys, I think we're going up instead of down.
Scully: Hey, Mulder, it's me. What now?
This man fell 30 floors, plus the distance down this shaft, because
these doors just happened to be open-- straight through, nothing but
Scully: Was this basement thoroughly searched?
Scully: Maybe he just got lucky.
I think you're taking a flier here, Mulder. There's got to be at least
600 people with prosthetic eyes in the greater Chicago area. Mulder:
Yeah, but only this one Henry Weems made an appointment this morning
to get a new one.
Mulder: Come on, Scully. I'm feeling lucky. ---
You okay, Mulder?
Scully: So, here's the plan, as I see it: we inform the Chicago field office about Weems, leaving it to them to secure his testimony, you change your clothes . . . we fly back to D.C. by sunset and all is right with the world. ---
Come on, Mulder, this guy just got lucky. There's no X-File here.
Cause and effect: seemingly unrelated and unconnected events and occurrences
that appear unrelated and random beforehand but which seem to chain-react
in Henry Weems' favor.
