Mulder, you okay?
Mulder: Yeah. For a guy who was, uh . . . in a coffin not too long ago
I think I'm doing pretty damn good. I don't quite have my legs under
me . . . yet. ---
Mulder: Something looks different.
Scully: It's clean.
Mulder: Ah . . . that's it. (looks in the fish tank.) Missing a molly.
Scully: Yeah. She wasn't as lucky as you. ---
I know all I need to know.
Marion: Want to bet? (Absalom looks at the book that Marion is holding
out. It's: "THE COMING APOCALYPSE.")
Marion: Put a rise in your Levi's? ---
I've had a partner for the last several months. He was assigned to help
me find you.
Mulder: Mission accomplished. Does he know what he's doing at all, this
Skinner: About the paranormal? Not much.
Mulder: I see. Then maybe the question is not who fired this magic bullet,
but whether or not it was a lone gunman. ---
office. Mulder makes himself comfortable.)
Scully: Mulder . . .
Mulder: Who says you can't go home again?
Scully: What are you doing here?
Mulder: What's it look like?
Skinner: It looks like you want to give them real ammunition to use
on you, that's what it looks like.
Mulder: Hey, I am just down here visiting my buds. Where is this Agent
Doggett anyway? What kind of hours does he keep? ---
Anything to do with this? This Absalom abductee class picture?
Scully: Yes . . . It does. Why?
Mulder: Because I noticed that the man who was shot on the White House
lawn is one of the men in that photograph. Top right hand corner. In
profile. Howard Salt, if I'm not mistaken. (Scully looks at the photo,
glances resignedly at Skinner, then back to Mulder.)
Scully: He's right. You're right.
Mulder: Consider that a freebie. The next one's going to cost you. ---
Why? What else do you know?
Mulder: Oh, I don't know anything. But you know me, I got a real big
hunch. This Howard Salt was a multiple alien abductee, worked for the
U.S. Census Bureau. Wanted to get word to the President, unspecified
grievances. What do you want to bet those grievances were?
Scully: You think he knew something?
Mulder: I think they killed him for it.
Skinner: The man jumped the White House fence. He had a gun.
Mulder: Once again, I'm a betting man. I'm betting he had more than
Scully: Mulder, you make it sound like this was a conspiracy.
Mulder: Ooh. There's that word again.
Skinner: You're being paranoid, Mulder. Even for you.
Mulder: Do you want to hear something really paranoid? The FBI gets
its way, there's going to be nobody down here to ask the paranoid questions.
Nobody to find those faces in those photographs. Surely not this Agent
Mulder, I know you know this, but if anything leaves this room you could
be in violation of the law.
Mulder: Really? When I was dead I was hoping maybe they changed the
Scully: Mulder, just being here could be used by Kersh as cause for
Mulder: Then why don't you shut the door so he doesn't find out. ---
Mulder, you've been through an ordeal that defies all logical explanation.
How can you think that these two men have the answers when they defy
all standard of credibility?
Mulder: Since when has an X-File not defied a certain standard of credibility?
At least that's the way it used to work. ---
Mulder, if you go down the X-Files will go down, too. I mean, theoretically,
they could put you in prison for what you're doing here.
Mulder: Yeah, well, compared to where I just was, prison would be a
Princess cruise. ---
closes an office laptop and removes the hard drive.)
Scully: What are you doing?
Mulder: I'm going to book myself on that Princess cruise.
Scully (taking the hard drive from him): I'll book it for you. ---
You know, it's really not fair. You've been dead for six months and
you still look better than me. But not by much. (Frohike hugs him.)
Mulder: Melvin. I'd be a whole lot happier to see you if you'd just
take your hands off my ass. ---
Well, just remember, boys, this is America. Just because you get more
votes doesn't mean you win. ---

Frohike: (on radio) Mulder? What the hell's that?
Doggett: Your life's in danger if you don't get out now.
Mulder: (on radio) Just a fly buzzing around the window.---
