Fox Mulder: I can feel you thinking.
Dana Scully: I'm sorry. I can't sleep.
Fox Mulder: Actually, I have a little something for that.
Dana Scully: Just a little something?
Fox Mulder: Thank you.
Fox Mulder: This is not an exact science. If it were me, I'd be on the guy 24/7. I'd be in bed with him kissing his holy ass.
ASAC Dakota Whitney: Father Joe is a convicted pedophile.
Fox Mulder: [surprised] ... Maybe I'd stay out of bed with him.
Assistant Director Walter Skinner: We will find him. I know Mulder. He'd get to a phone and call first. He wouldn't do anything crazy.
[Scully stares at him]
Assistant Director Walter Skinner: Not overly crazy.
Fox Mulder: Scully? Why would he say that?
[he pauses then follows Scully to her car]
Fox Mulder: "Don't give up." Why would he say such a thing to you?
Dana Scully: I think that was clearly meant for you, Mulder.
Fox Mulder: He didn't say it to me. He said it to you.
Dana Scully: Umm...
Fox Mulder: If Father Joe were the devil, why would he say the opposite of what the devil might say?
[she doesn't reply, though clearly attempting to rationalize]
Fox Mulder: Maybe that's the answer. You know, the larger answer.
Dana Scully: What do you mean?
Fox Mulder: Don't give up.
Dana Scully: Please don't make this any harder than it already is.
Fox Mulder: It's OK... OK.
Fox Mulder: [wrapping his arms around Scully, allowing her to rest her head on his chest] If you have any doubts, any doubts at all, just call off that surgery this morning. And then we'll get out of here.
[he loosens his embrace enough to look into her eyes]
Fox Mulder: Just me and you.
Dana Scully: As far away from the darkness as we can get?
Fox Mulder: I'm not sure it works that way. I think maybe the darkness finds you, and me.
Dana Scully: [as a tear rolls down her cheek] I know it does.
Fox Mulder: But let it try.
[they embrace again, this time pulling together in a long, passionate kiss]
Dana Scully: This stubbornness of yours, it's why I fell in love with you.
Fox Mulder: It's like you said. That's why we can't be together.
Dana Scully: Yeah, well, it's been fun.
Fox Mulder: Scully? Nobody's gonna make you sit next to him.
Dana Scully: Thanks, but I've already been taken for a ride. Anyway, he doesn't want me there.
Fox Mulder: I want you here.
Dana Scully: This isn't my life anymore, Mulder. I'm done chasing monsters in the dark.
Dana Scully: Listen to me! I need your help!
Agent Mosley Drummy: I'm sorry. I - I can't help you.
Dana Scully: Then let me talk to somebody there with some balls who can.
Assisting Nurse: Are you ready to begin, uh, Dr. Scully?
Dana Scully: [Scully scans around the room at all the other medical personnel, finally pausing for several seconds to look at three nuns observing through a window] Yes.
Dana Scully: What was it you were praying for in there, sir?
Father Joe: For the salvation of my immortal soul.
Dana Scully: And do you think God hears your prayers?
Father Joe: Do you think he hears yours?
Dana Scully: I didn't bugger 37 altar boys.
Father Joe: Oh.
Fox Mulder: That's a colorful way of puttin' it.
Dana Scully: Well, I have another word, if you'd like.
Fox Mulder: I'm sure you do.
Fox Mulder: Are you asking me to give up?
Dana Scully: No. I can't tell you to do that, Mulder. But I can tell you that I won't be coming home.
Dana Scully: You know, the truth is, I worrry about you, and the effects of long-term isolation.
Fox Mulder: [chuckling] I'm fine here. I'm happy as a clam.
Father Joe: And where do they come from, these appetites, these uncontrollable urges of ours?
Dana Scully: Not from God!
Father Joe: Not from me. I castrated myself when I was twenty-six.
Father Joe: Do you know why we live here, the men who call this vile box of monsters home? Because we hate each other, even as we hate ourselves, for our sickening appetites.
