Special Agent Chesty Short: Gas, expenses . . . the motel rooms alone.
By FBI standards these numbers are out of control.
Mulder: We could start sharing rooms. ---
Short: Investigating your sister's abduction and the government conspiracy
around it. Both of which have been resolved, correct?
Mulder: Nothing has been resolved exactly.
Short: In this case report here it's concluded your sister is dead as
well as the men who took her. This is your handwriting here on the report,
Short: So, what exactly is left to investigate? ---
Covarrubias: Your release has been arranged.
Krycek: Marita Covarrubias. The last time I saw you, I left you for
Marita: Alex, if it was strictly up to me, I'd leave you here to rot,
Short: But you don't believe in aliens?
Scully: I've seen things that I cannot deny. ---
I can't do my job from an office, I promise you.
Short: Nowadays, the most advanced space exploration is done sitting
in an office, Agent Mulder. Why? It's just too damn expensive putting
men in outer space.
Mulder: I'm not looking in outer space.
Short: Bringing us to the point. If you spend so much time and money
looking for aliens, responsibly, you should narrow your search.
Mulder: To where?
Short: Wherever they are. It's not unreasonable. It's just a matter
of reducing your vision. ---
I think I'm in big trouble.
Scully: Oh, Mulder, how many times have they tried to shut us down?
Mulder: Yeah, but I never actually assaulted an auditor before.
Scully: Did you hurt him?
Mulder: I reduced his vision a little bit. ---
Mulder (to Billy Miles): Oregon, seven years ago. You had multiple abduction
It happening again, Billy?
Billy: Yeah, but not to me this time. ---
More alien abductions, Scully.
Scully: I don't know how we could possibly justify the expense.
Mulder: We'd probably turn up nothing.
Scully: Let's go waste some money. ---
I was worried about you, Alex.
Krycek: Cut the crap, old man.
CSM: I heard about your incarceration.
Krycek: You had me thrown in that hellhole. ---
Mulder: Deja vu all over again.
Det. Miles: That (faded orange X)was there already in case you're wondering
at all about it.
Scully: I watched Agent Mulder paint that there seven years ago.
Det. Miles: What for?
Mulder: To mark an anomalous electrical disturbance-- the kind where
time gets bent or goes missing or where your car loses power and dies
in the middle of the road. ---
Mulder: Nothing's all you seem to find out here, Detective. ---
It's not worth it, Scully.
Mulder: I want you to go home.
Scully: Oh, Mulder, I'm going to be fine.
Mulder: No, I've been thinking about it. Looking at you tonight, holding
that baby . . . knowing everything that's been taken away from you.
A chance for motherhood and your health and that baby. I think that
. . . I don't know, maybe they're right.
Scully: Who's right?
Mulder: The FBI. Maybe what they say is true, though for all the wrong
reasons. It's the personal costs that are too high. Mulder: There so
much more you need to do with your life. There's so much more than this.
There has to be an end, Scully. ---
It's there, Alex. I'm certain of it. Hidden in plain sight.
Krycek: You listen to me. If you're going to play games, the two of
them, Mulder and Scully, they're going to beat me to it.
CSM: Are you saying that Mulder and Scully are there looking for the
Krycek: They're looking for a missing deputy.
CSM: Well, they're looking for the right thing but in the wrong place.
Krycek: You sent me looking for a ship.
CSM: Find the deputy. Find the ship. ---
Mulder: These abductees aren't just systematically being taken. They're
not coming back. ---
Mulder: What's our punishment this time? Thumbscrews or 40 lashes? Come
on in, Walter. Sit a spell. This could be the last time you take a trip
down to these offices. ---
Mulder: Oh well yeah, stick to a budget they say your making a contribution,
but push the limits of your profession, and they say you're out of control.
Skinner: You could bring home a flying saucer and have an alien shake
hands with the President . . . what it comes down to Agent Mulder is
. . . they don't like you.
Mulder: Well, we didn't bring home a flying saucer . . . or an alien.
Skinner: Yeah . . . so I've been told. ---
Krycek: You've got every reason to want to see me dead. But you've got
to listen to me now. You have the singular opportunity.
Mulder: Here or you want to step outside. ---
I'm giving you the chance to change that, to hold the proof.
Mulder: Why me and why now?
Krycek: I want to damn the soul of that Cigarette Smoking Son-of-a-Bitch.
Mulder: You're not going back out there. I'm not going to let you go
back out there.
Scully: What are you talking about?
Mulder: It has to end sometime. That time is now.
Scully: Mulder . . .
Mulder: Scully, you have to understand that they're taking abductees.
You're an abductee. I'm not going to risk . . . losing you.
Scully: I won't let you go alone. ---
This is starting to feel like the snipe hunt I was afraid of.
Mulder: There's no such thing as a snipe, sir. ---
Billy Miles and other known abductees in Bellefleur, Oregon. They all
experienced anomalous brain activity.
Byers: Electro-encephalitic trauma.
Scully: Which is exactly what Mulder experienced earlier this year.
Langley: I don't understand.
Scully: There was something out there in that field. It knocked me back.
Because it didn't want me. Mulder thinks that it's me that's in danger
of being taken.
Frohike: When it's Mulder who's in danger . . . Scully? (Scully faints.)
Gunmen: Scully! Whoa! You okay? Oh, gee. ---
Nurse Greta: What are you doing?
Krycek: Sending the Devil back to Hell. ---
CSM: As you do to Mulder and to me . . . you do to all of mankind, Alex.
Scully: I already heard.
Skinner: I lost him. I don't know what else I can say. I lost him. I'll
be asked . . . what I saw. And what I saw, I can't deny. I won't.
Scully: (crying) We will find him. I have to. ---
Sir, um . . . there's something else I need to tell you. Something that
I need for you to keep to yourself. I'm having a hard time explaining
it. Or believing it. But, um . . . I'm pregnant.
