Episode: First Person Shooter Episode Number: 7x13 Tagline: The Truth is Out There
Langly: Dudes! Agent Mulder, what's up, wild man? Welcome to the land
where silicon meets silicone.
She's packing a flintlock.
Byers: Ivan must have called him to go in and slay the ninja babe.
Ivan: What just happened?
Scully: Dressing up like high-tech warriors to play a futuristic version of Cowboys and Indians? What kind of moron gets his ya-yas out like that? ---
Mulder, what - what purpose does this game serve except to add to a
culture of violence in a country that's already out of control?
Scully: For the record, can you state your name, please?
. . . That you murdered two men. One with a 14th century broadsword
and the other with a flintlock pistol.
Mulder: I don't know about you, Scully, but I am feeling the great need to blast the crap out of something. ---

What is he doing?
Mulder: (to Maitreya) Hey. I bet you think you're going to kick my butt
up and down the block.
Mulder: Whoa! Stop right there! (Maitreya whips out the pistols. Mulder
drops his sword to the ground.)
Mulder: That's entertainment! ---
Mulder: (voiceover) We came, we saw, we conquered. And if the taste of victory is sweet the taste of virtual victory is not Sweet 'N Low, nor the bullets made of sugar. Maybe past where the imagination ends our true natures lie, waiting to be confronted on their own terms. Out where the intellect is at war with the primitive brain in the hostile territory of the digital world where laws are silent and rules disappear in the midst of arms. Born in anarchy with an unquenchable bloodthirst we shudder to think what might rise up from the darkness.
