Quotes

Fox Mulder: Do you have that sandwich I asked you to bring?

Dana Scully: It's liverwurst.

Dana Scully: Mulder, you know that proper surveillance requires two pairs of agents, one pair relieving the other after 12 hours.

Fox Mulder: Article 30, paragraph 8.7?

Dana Scully: This isn't about doing it by the book. This is about you not having slept for three days. Mulder, you're gonna get sloppy and you're gonna get hurt. It's inevitable at this point.

Fox Mulder: A request for other agents to stake out Tooms would be denied. 'Til then, we have no grounds.

Dana Scully: Well then, I'll stay here. You go home.

Fox Mulder: They're out to put an end to the X-Files, Scully. I don't know why, but any excuse will do. I don't really care about my record, but you'd be in trouble just sitting in this car. And I'd hate to see you carry an official reprimand in your career file because of me.

Dana Scully: Fox...

Fox Mulder: [Rueful laughing] I... I... even made my parents call me Mulder. So... Mulder.

Dana Scully: Mulder, I wouldn't put myself on the line for anybody but you.

Fox Mulder: If there's an iced tea in that bag, it could be love.

Dana Scully: Must be fate, Mulder. Root beer.

[trying to distract Eugene Tooms]

Mulder: Excuse me. Could you help me find my dog? He's a Norwegian Elkhound. His name is Heinrick. I use him to hunt moose!

[after Skinner expresses disapproval about Mulder and Scully's unorthodox methods]

Dana Scully: Sir, the very nature of the X-Files cases often precludes orthodox investigation.

Walter Skinner: Are you suggesting the Bureau adopt different standards for you and Agent Mulder?

Dana Scully: No, sir.

Walter Skinner: Are you suggesting that Agent Mulder obstructs you from carrying out proper procedure?

Dana Scully: No, sir. If anything, I'm suggesting that these cases be reviewed with an open mind.

Walter Skinner: Maybe your mind has become too open.

[Skinner talks to Mulder in private]

Walter Skinner: Agent Scully, may I have a word with Agent Mulder, please?

[Scully leaves the room; the Cigarette Smoking Man stubs out a cigarette and lights a new one. Skinner takes off his glasses and sits next to Mulder]

Walter Skinner: Fox... you are one of the finest, most unique agents in the nearly sixty-year history of this institution. I mean, we were talking about you when you were in the academy. Now, most of us, including the director, feel that your talents are wasted on the X-Files. But we respect that you're deeply invested in those areas. But if these areas are creating such stress as to not only cause you to act inappropriately, but those agents close to you as well, then may I advise you to step away... for a while. Clear your head, take an extended vacation.

Fox Mulder: That's a good idea. Thanks for your concern.

[realizing he's not getting through, Skinner goes back to his desk and puts his glasses back on]

Walter Skinner: [quietly] You're forbidden to go near Eugene Tooms.

[Mulder gets up and prepares to leave]

Walter Skinner: Mulder...

[Mulder stops]

Walter Skinner: This was close. Any closer and a thousand friends at the Capitol won't be able to help you.

[reading a news article on Tooms's release, Briggs crumples it into a ball and tosses it away in disgust]

Detective Frank Briggs: [to Scully] If he gets away now, the next time he kills... you'll be nearly my age.

[Scully asks Briggs if anything about Tooms's earlier crimes felt wrong to him]

Detective Frank Briggs: There is one thing that never did sit quite right with me. When I investigated the killings in 1963, all five of the victims were found at the crime scene - all five.

Dana Scully: As with the four most recent murders.

Detective Frank Briggs: When I investigated the original Powhatan Mil killings in 1933, only four of the victims were found at the crime scene. However, there was a fifth person who was missing but never found. But this...

[He opens his old file box and lifts out a jar with a piece of a human liver]

Detective Frank Briggs: This was discovered at the Ruxton Chemical Plant while it was under construction, but it doesn't belong to any of the other victims.

Dana Scully: That doesn't prove it belonged to a person murdered by Tooms.

Detective Frank Briggs: I am positive that Tooms hid this particular victim because there was something about the body that could prove he was the killer.

Dana Scully: How do you know?

Detective Frank Briggs: A hunch. A good, old-fashioned hunch. You've got to be able to trust your instincts.

Dana Scully: And where do your instincts tell you Tooms buried the body?

Detective Frank Briggs: In the concrete where they poured the foundation of the chemical plant.

Dr. Aaron Monte: You nervous about tomorrow? Don't be. I know you think they won't let you out so I snuck a peek at the reports of the doctors that will testify at your review tomorrow, and they concur with my opinion that you're ready to be released from here, and rejoin the community. So, why don't we get some sleep and relax and I'll see you tomorrow at the review.

[Dr. Monte gets ready to leave the room]

Dr. Aaron Monte: Let's just keep our fingers crossed
