Episode: Invocation Episode Number: 8x06 Tagline: The Truth is Out There
Sheriff Sanchez: "I took his prints... It's him. Boy should be a
teenager by now, but look at him. Explain to me how that can be."
Sheriff Sanchez: "There's lots of files. There's just not much in them. We never even had a suspect."---
Scully: "Okay. Well, what we've got here is a healthy seven-year-old
boy who was born 17 years ago."
Doggett: "You want to talk about it, Billy? You know, maybe you think bad things happened to you because you've been a bad boy... but I'm here to tell you, that's not true. The bad guy is the one who took you away and it's up to you and me to get the bad guy. See, 'cause as big and tough as I am, I can't do it alone. I need your help. Can you tell me about him, Billy? What's his name? What did he look like?" ---
Doggett: "I just want to put the person who did this out of business. Billy just didn't show up. He got away or was let go. And if he can talk, he can tell us by who. Or he can look at photos in the files and point to the man who did this so this doesn't happen to some other little boy."---
Scully: "What showed up is that Billy is the same boy who was taken
ten years ago."
Doggett: "So, what's the punch line? Where are you saying he's been?"
Scully: "There are... X-File cases that describe similar paranormal
findings. Alien abductees who came back with anomalous medical stats."
Doggett: "Look, I want to catch this guy, Agent Scully, whatever it takes." ---
Doug Underwood: "We should have tried to get more answers. We were
too quick to pull him out of the hospital."
Scully: "Well, I hate to say this... but I think that the best thing for Billy and his family is if he's removed to an institution under the observation of people who are experienced in these things."---
Scully: "This is not a normal child, Agent Doggett, and this is
not a normal act."
Doug Underwood: "This is great. Now, I've got a psychic sitting
in my living room who's going to tell me what's wrong with my son."
Doug Underwood: "What am I left with? A kid who stabs knives into his brother's mattress? You don't know the half of it. He gives everyone but his mother the creeps with that stare of his."---
Sharon Pearl (psychic): "Is this going to happen?"
Sharon Pearl (psychic): "You're no doubt confused, Agent Doggett. I take psychic readings not see through walls."---
Sharon Pearl: "There are very powerful forces at work here. Working through this boy. Drawing him to his brother. I feel this force... I feel this force..." (looks at Doggett) "...coming through you. You lost someone just like Billy." ---
Scully: "It's impossible, Agent Doggett, like everything else about
this case. Like how Billy can be in his home one minute and then in
Ronnie's car the next. Everything about this case is impossible."
Sheriff Sanchez: "Agent Doggett, Agent Scully, I got bad news on top of worse. Josh, the Underwood's other little boy, has disappeared. I'm not joking, not even close."----
Doggett: "I've got to talk to this kid, Agent Scully. I'm absolutely sure." ---
Scully: "Okay, the clothes, the age and condition of the bones, the
location of the grave. There is no doubt that that is Billy Underwood's
skeleton that is in that grave."
Scully: "Look, I know where you are with this. I have been there.
I know what you're feeling - that you've failed and that you have to
explain this somehow. And maybe you can."
Scully: "But maybe that's explanation enough. That that's not Billy's
brother lying in that grave, too. That that man who did this is never
going to be able to do it again. Isn't that what you wanted, Agent Doggett?"
