Quotes

Scully: Mulder, I can't kid myself. People live with cancer. They carry on, and so will I. You know I've got things to finish, to prove to myself, to my family, but for my own reasons.
Mulder: Come on back. The truth will save you, Scully. I think it'll save both of us.

Remember you will die
21 October 2008 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Memento Mori probably is my all time favorite mythology episode. Scully is finally diagnosed with cancer. Gillian Anderson's performance in this episode was amazing, this episode will tug at your heart strings. Anderson's emotional force and touching facial expressions work the best here. David Duchovny was terrific too. The Scully centered episodes always tend to be the best ones, eg: "Beyond the Sea" but Duchovny really holds this episode together like he did on season two's "One Breath". The Lone Gunmen also make an appearance, trying to help Mulder find a cure for Scully. "Memento Mori" is as good as the series gets: there is action, humor, emotion, tragedy, all thrown in to the mix. This episode is as personal as it gets. It is truly the best piece of "X-Files" mythology out there.
