"The X-Files: One Son (#6.12)" (1999)

FBI Deputy Director Alvin Kersh: What the hell does that mean?
Mulder: It means the future is here, and all bets are off.

FBI Deputy Director Alvin Kersh: As are we, Assistant Director.

FBI Deputy Director Alvin Kersh: [to Scully and Skinner] Anything leaves this building about aliens or alien abductions or any other nonsense that might cast the Bureau in a ridiculous light, then you can forget about looking for Agent Mulder. You'll both be looking for new jobs.

The X Files: Resist or Serve (2004) (VG)
Alvin Kersh: The walking dead? An alien virus? Government Cover-Ups? Your report sounds like the plot of a bad video game.


"The X-Files: Existence (#8.21)" (2001)
FBI Deputy Director Alvin Kersh: I'm to take this story seriously? These incidents at the FBI, this account of Agent Scully's birth - I'm to submit this report as quality investigative work, as representative of actual fact?
John Doggett: I signed the report there, sir.
FBI Deputy Director Alvin Kersh: Yeah, I see it, John. And I see her signature here, too.
[turns to Agent Reyes]
FBI Deputy Director Alvin Kersh: ... on an X-File? I'd like to know when you assigned yourself, Agent Reyes.
Monica Reyes: Agent Doggett assigned me, sir.
FBI Deputy Director Alvin Kersh: Agent Doggett cannot just assume the authority of this office.
John Doggett: I assume it because this office is under investigation for a late night meeting between you, Agent Crane, and an intelligence operative named Knowle Rohrer.
Monica Reyes: Both men were presumed dead, but are now missing, in actual fact.
[they begin to walk out of Kersh's office]
FBI Deputy Director Alvin Kersh: You investigate what *I* tell you.
John Doggett: And you put me on the X-Files: that's what I'm investigating.


"The X-Files: Without (#8.2)" (2000)
FBI Deputy Director Alvin Kersh: So much here is undetermined, as remain the whereabouts of Mulder. But some of your... facts... like, "a man falls from a cliff and disappears," "an agent has his throat crushed by an assailant who vanishes into thin air." This reads like a piece of pot-boiled science-fiction.
John Doggett: You mean it reads like an X-File.
