Did You Know?


When Josepho is calling in his contact report he makes the same old Hollywood error of using the word 'REPEAT' over the radio. The correct terminology to use is, "I SAY AGAIN' and you only do so if the person you're talking to asks for a confirmation of your message. It is an age old Hollywood cliché that a whenever a character speaks on a radio they have to relay the message twice to accentuate the drama. See more »


Scully: I'm on my way. That was Agent Doggett again. They're waiting. Mom, I've got to go.
Margaret Scully: It's the middle of the night, Dana. I just don't understand what can't wait 'til tomorrow.
Scully: Mom, it's important. I wouldn't go if it weren't.
Margaret Scully: Yes, I know, Dana. You say it's about getting answers.
Scully: Answers about William, Mom.
Margaret Scully: I know you're worried about him... that there are things about him that you just can't explain - but even if you were to get those answers what would it change?
Scully: Mom, he's my child.
Margaret Scully: And you ...

Salome UFO cultists asks King Kerod Scully to bring him the head of Mulder the Baptist?
12 February 2009 | by (Sandy, UT, United States) – See all my reviews

So now that Scully's baby is gone, the FBI launches a task force to find him but Scully decides to launch her own personal task force like always. I always think its funny whenever someone goes missing on this show and the FBI launches a search team seems like Mulder and/or Scully and/or Skinner is always mad. If I weren't a viewer of the show and instead an actual FBI agent busting my butt trying to find this kid then I would think Scully was a pompous ungrateful bitty because she leaves the office and starts talking about how its a joke and all. Anyway, Doggett is in the hospital and apparently Reyes thinks that because TLG were ambushed and lost the baby that they are not to be trusted. You're one to be talking little miss been on the show less than a year. Scully and Reyes go to FBI cult guy's hospital with the healer artifact from the space ship and make him talk and tell them what is going on and why and then they are caught and leave the room and Charles Widmore super soldier kills FBI cult guy making it look like Reyes and Scully probably did it. Scully slips out and goes to find the cult and save her baby. William opens the UFO they found by crying a bunch and everyone blows up except him and Scully and Reyes find him and something something blah blah blah I forget. We do get a slight indication that Brad Follmer is gonna pull a Skinner and actually turn out not being a bad guy but just a jerk face in the beginning because that's what you do at the FBI. Oh and Reyes prays to Doggett when he's sleeping and then Doggett wakes up and thanks her. 6 out of 10.
