Title Translation: Being and Time


Skinner: Why are you here, Agent Mulder?
Mulder: I want this case. ---

Mulder: Two, three, four hours -- this case is going to be a circus. Every starstruck attorney in America is going to want to represent these people for free. If somebody doesn't ask the right questions right now they may never get asked.
Skinner: You've got till noon. Mulder . . . the agents in my office . . . they have a pool going.
Mulder: They think she's dead. Don't bet on it. ---

Mulder: Mr. and Mrs. LaPierre, I want you to understand something because it's going to get very confusing from here on in. But whatever else the FBI says or does they're going to try their damnedest to find your little girl. ---

Scully: Mind if I turn on a light?
Mulder: Yeah. I do. ---

Scully: You're personalizing this case. You're identifying with your sister.
Mulder: My sister was taken by aliens. Did I say anything about aliens, Scully. ---

Mulder: What did I do? I provided a logical counterpoint.
Scully: You told them that they were wrong, Mulder.
Mulder: And they are. ---

Scully: You're personalizing this case.
Mulder: No, I'm going to solve this case. I am going to solve it.
Scully: How?
Mulder: I'm going to find those kids. ---

Mulder: (on video) . . . Federal investigation of the case will continue but will no longer focus on the LaPierres as primary suspects. We, uh, we will intensify our search for Amber Lynn and we remain hopeful of her eventual safe return.
Skinner: (pausing the video) Intensify our search where? The twilight zone? ---

Skinner: I deal in the real world, Agent Mulder. You begged onto this case as part of the solution. All you've done is hand our only suspects the Twinkie Defense. ---

Scully: Sir?
Skinner:What? What is it, Agent Scully?
Scully: I need to have a word with Agent Mulder.
Skinner: It can wait.
Scully: No, it can't, sir.
Mulder: What is it, Scully?
Scully: Mulder, your mom's dead. ---

Mulder: Whoever took my sister. Look at this place. I mean, it's like . . . it's-it's all staged -- the pills, the oven, the tape. It's like a bad movie script. They would . . . they would have come here and they would have threatened her. She would be upset; they would have to sedate her. I would look for a, uh . . . a needle puncture mark or something else in her system besides these pills.
Scully: Oh, no, Mulder. Please don't ask me to do this.
Mulder: Scully, who else can I ask?
Scully: An autopsy, Mulder? I mean, it's one thing on a stranger but you're my friend, and she's your mother . . .
Mulder: I know, but if you don't do it, I might never know the truth. ---

Teena Mulder (on Mulder's answering machine): Fox, it's your mother. I'd hoped you'd call upon your return but I haven't heard from you. I'm sure you're busy. There are . . . so many emotions in me I wouldn't know where to start. So much that I've left unsaid, for reasons I hope one day you'll understand. ---

Mulder: Scully, these parents who've lost . . . who've lost their children . . . They've had visions of their sons and daughters in scenarios that never happened but which they describe in notes that came through them as automatic writing and words that came through them psychically from old souls protecting the children. My mother must have written a note like that herself. Describing the scenario of my sister's disappearance of her, of her abduction by aliens. Don't you see, Scully? It never happened. All these visions that I've had have just been . . . they've been to help me cope, to help me deal with the loss but . . . I've been looking for my sister in the wrong place. That's . . . what my mother was trying to tell me. That's what she was trying to warn me about. That's why they killed her.
Scully: Your mother killed herself, Mulder. I conducted the autopsy. She was dying of an incurable disease. An untreatable and horribly disfiguring disease called Paget's Carcinoma. She knew it. There were doctor's records. She didn't want to live. ---

Scully: Mulder, she was trying to tell you to stop. To stop looking for your sister. She was just trying to take away your pain. ---

Skinner: You think their daughter's dead.
Scully: Well, what about the handwritten note?
Mulder: I don't know what that means. I don't know what is the truth and what isn't anymore. I'm way too close to this case to make any kind of sound judgment. In fact, I would like to ask for you to let me off this case, please, and I'd like to take some time off.
