Episode: Sein Und Zeit Episode Number: 7x10 Tagline: The Truth is Out There
Title Translation: Being and Time
Skinner: Why are you here, Agent 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
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. ---
Mind if I turn on a light?
You're personalizing this case. You're identifying with your sister.
Mulder: What did I do? I provided a logical counterpoint.
Scully: You're personalizing this case.
(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: 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. ---
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.
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: 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.
