Special Agent Fox Mulder: [Scully and Mulder are examining what appears to be an alien body found in a coffin] If it's not human, what is it?

Special Agent Dana Scully: It's mammalian. My guess is it's a chimpanzee or something from the ape family. Possibly an orangutan.

Special Agent Fox Mulder: Buried in the city cemetery in Ray Soames's grave. Try telling that to the good townsfolk or Ray Soames's family. I want tissue samples and X-rays. I'd like blood-typing, toxicology and a full genetic work-up.

Special Agent Dana Scully: You're serious?

Special Agent Fox Mulder: What we can't do here, we'll order to go.

Special Agent Dana Scully: You don't honestly believe this is some kind of extraterrestrial? This is somebody's sick joke.

Special Agent Fox Mulder: We can do those X-rays here, can we? Is there any reason we can't do them right now? I'm not crazy, Scully. I have the same doubts you do.

Special Agent Fox Mulder: When convention and science offer us no answers, might we not finally turn to the fantastic as a plausibility?

Special Agent Dana Scully: ...What I find fantastic is any notion that there are answers beyond the realm of science. The answers are there. You just have to know where to look.

Special Agent Fox Mulder: That's why they put the I in FBI.
