Quotes

Scully: What are you thinking? Mulder?
Mulder: I'm thinking... I'm a guilty man. I've failed in every respect. I deserve the harshest punishment for my crimes.
Scully: You don't believe that.
Mulder: I believe... that I sat in a motel room like this with you when we first met... and I tried to convince you of the truth. And in that respect, I succeeded, but... in every other way... I've failed.

Bringing down the curtain on 9 years of pure brilliance...
17 May 2004 | by (Coventry, England) – See all my reviews

After 202 episodes spanning across nine years, the X-Files finally closes its doors. For die-hard fans, this two part finale is sure to satisfy, with expert performances from all the cast involved. The plot centres around a military tribunal with Agent Mulder on charge for the murder of a military man who can't be killed, Knowle Rohrer, a government super soldier. With Skinner acting as Mulder's defence, all of his allies from the past nine years testify on his behalf. I won't tell what happens from there on, just make sure you watch it! Superbly written and directed by Kim Manners and Chris Carter, this episode shows many twists and turns and highlights once again the fantastic on screen chemistry which Mulder and Scully share. Chris Carter has left the door open for another X-Files movie, so lets hope The X-Files makes a return to the big screen as soon as possible. To Chris Carter, I salute you, The X-Files 1993-2002, R.I.P
