Monica Reyes: You're hurting for her, I know. Agent Scully.
John Doggett: I don't know how she's doing it in there. With everything she's feeling. What she's afraid of.
Monica Reyes: You know all too well.
John Doggett: Let's leave the past in the past.
Monica Reyes: It was your fear, too. Those three days we looked for your son. The fear of finding what we did. I understand. That's why you're so determined to find Mulder alive.
John Doggett: It's why I can't stand here and listen to all this mumbo jumbo about spaceships.
Monica Reyes: I saw what I saw, John. I'm not going to lie to you. But whatever it was, it led to this. It's the man I saw in the field. He goes by the name Absalom. A religious zealot who escaped a shoot-out in Idaho. Where he was the nominal leader of a doomsday cult who believed aliens would take over the world at the millennium. Disgraced when they didn't, he fled and tried a more ecumenical scam - credit card fraud. I ran the plate on the pick-up truck. It's registered to a farm about an hour from here.

Scully: Do you want me to ask Mulder?
Agent Colton: Okay, if he wants to come and do you a favour, great. But make sure he knows this is my case. Dana, if I can break a case like this one, I'll be getting my bump up the ladder. And you, maybe you won't have to be Mrs. Spooky any more.

TV Show: The X-Files
Mulder: Why would I make them so uncomfortable?
Scully: It probably has to do with your reputation.

Mulder: Spooky? Do you think I'm spooky?

TV Show: The X-Files

Agent Colton: You can't be serious.
Mulder: Do you have any idea what liver and onions go for on Reticula?

Mulder: Great.
Scully: What?
Mulder: You shouldn't have told them. They have no jurisdiction.
