Scully: "I'm sorry, Agent Doggett, I didn't realise that you had an appointment."
Doggett: "This is Duffy Haskell. He says he knows you or you know him."
Scully: "I'm sorry. I don't remember."
Duffy Haskell: "I contacted you about my wife. About eight years ago because she was an alien abductee."
Scully: "That was before my time here. But, uh, is there something I can help you with?"---

Duffy Haskell: "My wife gave birth to an alien."
Scully: "I thought you said that your wife was murdered."
Duffy Haskell: "That's the reason they did it."---

Duffy Haskell: "Kath was a multiple abductee. The aliens did these procedures on her. Tests and whatnot. One procedure would give her cancer while another one would cure her. Stuff like that. For years, you see. And then, this year, they came right into our bedroom and implanted an alien embryo in Kath."---

Scully: "Thank you, Agent Doggett. I'm sure the rest of my afternoon can't possibly be so amusing."
Doggett: "I thought you'd find it interesting, actually."
Scully: "Interesting? As in preposterous and outrageous?"
Doggett: "Well, unless I'm mistaken you already knew that man's story. The abduction the tests, a bout with cancer then a remission."
Scully: "What exactly are you getting at?"
Doggett: "That's your story, Agent Scully. I'd say right down to a tee. I mean, except for the pregnancy. It's all right there in the X-Files."
Scully: "Well, I appreciate your thoroughness, Agent Doggett, and your familiarity with the X-Files cases in those cabinets, but my personal files are my personal files. Okay?"
Doggett: "Sure, of course." ---

Mulder: "There you are. I've been looking all over for you."---

Mulder: "Mmm. Then what's wrong?"
Scully: "I'm... I'm sorry I haven't told you. I don't know why I haven't. I mean, you were always there for me during my illness but, um..."
Mulder: "Don't make me guess."
Scully: "I was left unable to conceive with whatever test that they did on me. And I am not ready to accept that I will never have children."
Mulder: "Scully, there's, um, there's something I haven't told you either and I hope you, uh, forgive me and understand why I would have kept it from you."
Scully: "What?"
Mulder: "During my investigation into your illness I found out the reason why you were left barren. Your ova were taken from you and stored in a government lab."
Scully: "What? You found them?"
Mulder: "I took them directly to a specialist who would tell me if they were okay."
Scully: "I don't believe this."
Mulder: "Scully, you were deathly ill, and I... I couldn't bear to give you another piece of bad news."
Scully: "Is that what it was? It was bad news?"
Mulder: "The doctor said that the ova weren't viable."
Scully: "I want a second opinion." ---

Doggett: "I wasn't exactly clear on what you wanted to do about this guy Haskell. About his wife's story."
Scully: "There's nothing to do." ---

Dr Parenti: "Dana? What's wrong?"
Scully: "I'm afraid."
Dr Parenti: "Tell me what it is."
Scully: "I want you to look at something for me. Right away. It's an ultrasound."
Dr Parenti: "Well, I'm not in my office right now. Can you send it over there? I'll look at it as soon as possible."
Scully: "I want you to compare it to mine."---

Dr Parenti: "Ms Scully? Got a good report for you. I've looked at the ova you've given me and consulted with some of my colleagues. We all feel that with the proper approach we might be successful. Got a good chance to get you pregnant."
Scully: "Oh... It's too good to be true."---

Dr Parenti: "I don't want to lay odds but it's not out of the realm of possibility if we start soon."
Scully: "We can start right away?"
Dr Parenti: "Well, you need a father, of course. I can get you genetic counselling on finding an anonymous donor if that's what you want... unless you already have someone in mind."
Scully: "Yeah... I, uh... I just have to figure out how to ask him." ---

Scully: "You didn't see anything strange?"
Dr Parenti: "Why do you ask that?"
Scully: "I just want to be sure. I've had... complications."
Dr Parenti: "It's normal to be worried."---

Dr Parenti: "You bet. Your only concern right now is when you're going to tell the FBI. Can't keep it a secret forever, Dana. You're going to start showing soon."
Scully: "Right." ---

Doggett: "Agent Scully, I just got a call from a Dr Parenti's office. About an ultrasound you left there this morning."
Scully: "Dr Parenti is my doctor."
Doggett: "Come on, Agent Scully."
Scully: "You don't believe me?"
Doggett: "That ultrasound is the one Duffy Haskell left here yesterday. Dr Parenti is one of the doctors he consulted with during the course of that pregnancy."
Scully: "Excuse me, Agent Doggett, but are you investigating me?"---

Scully: "You are jumping to conclusions."
Doggett: "No, I'm just trying to do my job, only it gets hard to do if the person you're working with is keeping secrets and telling lies."---

Scully: "Parenti is my doctor. Is that so strange? Is there something about him I don't know?"
Doggett: "No. But Duffy Haskell is a piece of work. I'll tell you that much."---

Skinner: "As president of the Ohio Mutual UFO Network you sent Agent Mulder a series of very threatening letters which he passed on to me, Mr Haskell. Something of a habit with you, sir. Writing letters... threatening letters. Isn't it?"
Duffy Haskell: "No one will believe me."---

Skinner: "Mr Haskell, we're sorry for your loss, but if you persist in these threats and in disseminating these stories we're going to have to enter your name in the federal system as a dangerous individual."
Duffy Haskell: "I'm alone now because of them. They took everything from me. And there are other women out there just like Kath." ---

Dr Lev: (answering phone) "Zeus Genetics, Dr Lev speaking."
Duffy Haskell: "They called me back here to the FBI to poke holes in my story."
Dr Lev: "As we knew they would."
Duffy Haskell: "We still risk losing Hendershot."
Dr Lev: "Then it's time to let her go."---

Scully: "Obviously you've had some time to think about my request."
Mulder: "Um, it's... it's not something that I get asked to do every day. Um, but I am absolutely flattered. No, honestly."
Scully: "Okay, if... if you're trying to politely say 'no', it's okay. I understand."
Mulder: "See what's weird is... this sounds, and this sounds really weird, I know, but I just wouldn't want this to come between us."
Scully: "Yeah. I know... I understand. I do."
Mulder: "Well... the answer is 'yes'."
Scully: "Um... Well, I'll call Dr Parenti and... I assume that he'll want to meet you and go through the, uh, the donor procedure."
Mulder: "At that part, I'm a pro." ---

Doggett: "Am I missing something here?"
Skinner: "Agent Doggett as Assistant Director in charge of your assignment Agent Scully has come to me and asked to take a leave of absence."
Doggett: "Hey, great. Can I ask why?"
Scully: "No."
Doggett: "So I'm the X-Files now? Just me?"---

Skinner: "Agent Scully isn't quitting the FBI. She's just going away."
Doggett: "Thanks for getting me out of bed to give me the news. Drop me a line if you get a chance." ---

Skinner: "You've got to tell him, Scully."
Scully: "I can't." ---

Scully: "Agent Doggett? I want you to understand."
Doggett: "What is it you want me to understand, Agent Scully? The secrets or the lies?"
Scully: "I told you... I'm not doing anything behind your back."
Doggett: "You're supposed to watch my back, Agent Scully."
Scully: "If I was putting you at risk in any way you can be sure that I wouldn't let you down. I hope you know that. I only know what you tell me. I've got to go." ---

Dr Miryum: "You're Scully? Agent Scully?"
Scully: "Yes, Dana Scully. This is Ms Hendershot. Mary Hendershot."
Dr Miryum: "I'm Dr Miryum. These are the best team of obstetricians one could hope to assemble. Now you tell them what you told me."
Scully: "Ms Hendershot believes that she is carrying a baby that is not her own. That, by whatever means, at 40 weeks she is about to give birth to something inhuman."---

Mary Hendershot: "I can't trust my doctors."
Scully: "She believes, and with possible good reason, that her life may be in danger. That women just like her have been murdered in childbirth."---

Doggett: "I'm in the dark pretty much most of my time on the X-Files, Joe."---

Agent Farah: "Got a little something you may want to shine a light on. You had me run this guy Duffy Haskell's prints, right?"
Doggett: "I hate to say that case is closed now, Joe."
Agent Farah: "From what I found, it's been closed since 1970. When David Haskell, same prints, was buried in a Virginia cemetery - USMC honour guard ceremony."
Doggett: "You're kidding."
Agent Farah: "I kid you not. Looks like you got yourself a real spook."
Doggett: "Or a snake in the grass." ---

Dr Miryum: "At your stage, the foetus is still only about eight centimetres, but we should still be able to get a pretty clear picture of its development. There it is. You see it?"
Scully: "Yeah."
Dr Miryum: "I see two legs, two arms and hands. I see what would appear to be a healthy baby at 14 weeks."
Scully: "Are you sure?"
Dr Miryum: "The picture doesn't lie, Agent Scully. Hard to tell, but... would you like to know the sex?"
Scully: "I just want to be certain that it's okay."---

Doggett: "The man was in my office, Knowle. Military records show he died in 1970. What the hell's the story?"
Knowle Rohrer: "Possible. He's intelligence."---

Doggett: "He wanted us to investigate the murder of his wife. He claims she was an alien abductee. Look... I don't buy this crap but if the guy's CIA he wasn't just in my office killing time."
Knowle Rohrer: "Why go to the trouble at all?"
Doggett: "All I can think is that there must be documentation in our files of a conspiracy to hide the truth."
Knowle Rohrer: "About what, extraterrestrials?"
Doggett: "Look, it's not my work. It's the woman I work with - an Agent Scully."---

Doggett: "I can't get a straight answer on that which leads me to believe that this was a set-up from the start - that this guy Haskell came to us with his story to get Agent Scully to go wherever she's gone."
Skinner: "I can tell you that she's in a safe place, Agent Doggett. A hospital."---

Doggett: "Look, this involves doctors. Doctors who may have killed pregnant women. Now, a hospital could be the worst place in the world for her. Tell me where Scully is."---

Scully: "Who are you?"
Knowle Rohrer: "That's not important. Get in the car. We're going to get you out. Go."
Scully: "This woman could give birth at any minute. I hope you realise that."
Knowle Rohrer: "You're in good hands. These men are experienced field medics."
Scully: "Where are you taking us?"
Knowle Rohrer: "We're going to get you to the closest hospital where we can make sure this kid is born safe."---

Knowle Rohrer: "Agent Scully... we're going to have to sedate you."
Scully: "No!" ---

Doggett: "Lie down, Agent Scully. You're not taking any more chances."
Scully: "What happened to me?"
Doggett: "You're okay. You're fine. And your baby's fine. But you're very, very lucky."---

Scully: "What about Ms Hendershot?"
Doggett: "She's resting fine, too."
Scully: "What about her baby?"
Doggett: "Six pounds, eight ounces. A boy."
Scully: "Oh, my god. They switched it. Agent Doggett, they switched it on her."---

Doggett: "It's over, Agent Scully."---

Doggett: "They say you overreacted to everything. They say you overreacted to fears you had about Ms Hendershot's pregnancy, to the fears you had about your own."---

Scully: "It was all planned. You know that. From the moment that man walked into our office. We were used to get at Ms Hendershot's baby. And now we are being used to cover it up. Oh, my god."
Doggett: "At least you're okay. Why didn't you tell me?"
Scully: "I was afraid. Afraid that they'd use it against me to take me off the X-Files so that I couldn't find Mulder."
Doggett: "I told you I'd help you. I said we'd find him." ---

Mulder: "Scully? I must have dozed off. I was waiting for you to get back. It didn't take, did it?"
Scully: "I guess it was too much to hope for. It was my last chance."
Mulder: "Never give up on a miracle."---
