"The X-Files" Jose Chung's 'From Outer Space' (TV Episode 1996) Poster

Quotes

Jose Chung: For although we may not be alone in the universe, in our own separate ways, on this planet, we are all... alone.

Blaine: [about Scully and Mulder] One of them was disguised as a woman, but wasn't pulling it off. Like, her hair was red, but it was a little too red, y'know? And the other one, the tall, lanky one, his face was so blank and expressionless. He didn't even seem human. I think he was a mandroid.

Man in Black: Your scientists have yet to discover how neural networks create self-consciousness, let alone how the human brain processes two-dimensional retinal images into the three-dimensional phenomenon known as perception. Yet you somehow brazenly declare that seeing is believing!

Detective Manners: That's a bleepin' dead alien body if I ever bleepin' saw one.

Jose Chung: Evidence of extraterrestrial existence remains as elusive as ever, but the skies will continue to be searched by the likes of Blaine Faulkner, hoping to someday find not only proof of alien life, but also contentment on a new world. Until then, he must be content with his new job.

[Blaine, now a county lineman in a bucket lift, gets electrocuted by a power-pole transformer and screams]

Jose Chung: Others search for answers from within. Roky relocated to El Cajon, California, preaching to the lost and desperate.

Roky Crikenson: [Roky speaking before a small group seated on the floor] And so at each death, the soul descends further into the inner earth, attaining ever greater levels of purification, reaching enlightenment at the core. Assuming, of course, that your soul is able to avoid the lava men.

Jose Chung: Seeking the truth about aliens means a perfunctory 9-to-5 job to some. For although Agent Diana Lesky

[Scully reading the completed book "From Outer Space"]

Jose Chung: is noble of spirit and pure at heart, she remains, nevertheless, a federal employee. As for her partner, Renard Muldrake - that ticking time bomb of insanity - his quest into the unknown has so warped his psyche, one shudders to think how he receives any pleasures from life.

[Mulder in bed watching the Patterson-Gimlin bigfoot film]

Jose Chung: Chrissy Giorgio has come to believe her alien visitation was a message to improve the condition of her own world and she has devoted herself to this goal wholeheartedly.

Chrissy: [Harold tosses a pebble at her window to get her attention. She opens her window] Oh, it's you. What do you want?

Harold: I just wanted to tell you, I still love you.

Chrissy: Love. Is that all you men think about?

[Harold winces as she slams the window and turns away]

Jose Chung: Then there are those who care not about extraterrestrials, searching for meaning in other human beings. Rare or lucky are those who find it. For although we may not be alone in the universe, in our own separate ways, on this planet, we are all... alone.

[cue the X-Files theme music]

Detective Manners: [in Scully's flashback] Well, thanks a lot! You really bleeped up this case.

Scully: [retelling story] Well, of course he didn't actually say "bleeped." He said...

Jose Chung: I'm familiar with Detective Manners' colorful phraseology.

Jose Chung: Aren't you nervous telling me all this? After receiving all those death threats?

Blaine: Well, hey, I didn't spend all those years playing Dungeons and Dragons and not learn a little something about courage.

Jose Chung: [discussing the written statement of one of the witnesses to a UFO abduction] I don't know which was more disturbing, his description of the inner core reincarnated souls' sex orgy, or the fact that the whole thing was written in screenplay format.

Jose Chung: I was interested in how the CIA, when conducting the MK-ULTRA mind control experiments back in the 50's, had no idea how hypnosis worked. Or, what it was.

Scully: No one still knows.

Jose Chung: Still, as a storyteller, I'm fascinated how a person's sense of consciousness can be so transformed by nothing more magical than listening to words... mere words.

Man in Black: Even the former leader of your United States of America, James Earl Carter Jr., thought he saw a UFO once. But it's been proven he only saw the planet Venus.

Roky Crikenson: I'm a Republican.

Man in Black: Venus was at its peak brilliance last night. You probably thought you saw something up in the sky other than Venus, but I assure you, it was Venus.
