FBI Suit: Do you think Agent Mulder confides in you, Agent Scully? Scully: Of course. He’s my partner. CHRIS #1 TROLL CARTER: Your partner? Weren’t you originally assigned to Agent Mulder to debunk his work? Scully: Yes sir, that is how you wrote the Pilot.
[Mulder has an idea and looks something up in an actual phonebook instead of googling it because it’s 1994 and google won’t be invented for another 5 years. If you remember this do you feel old yet because I sure do.]
Krycek: You know, Chernobyl, Exxon Valdez, Three Mile Island - they were all linked to sleep deprivation. The U.S. Department of Transportation estimates that over 190,000 fatal car crashes every year are caused by sleepiness. Mulder: Do they estimate how many people are put to sleep listening to their statistics?
Scully: Mulder, I got the impression you didn’t believe him either. Mulder: I didn’t want to incite his already clearly aggravated imagination, but there is a weird feel to this place. Maybe there’s some truth to those rumors. Scully: I think he incited your imagination. I think this case is nothing more than a murderer taking advantage of local folklore. I mean, there’s nothing odd about — [commences raining frogs] Mulder: So, lunch? Scully: Mulder, toads just fell from the sky! Mulder: I guess their parachutes didn’t open. You were saying something about this place not feeling odd?
William Scully: Hello, Starbuck. It’s Ahab. People would say to me, “Life is short. Kids - they grow up fast. Before you know it, it’s over.” I never listened. To me, life went at a proper pace. There were many rewards until the moment that I understood I would never see you again, my little girl. Then my life felt as if it had only been one breath, one heartbeat. I never knew how much I loved my daughter till I could never tell her. In that moment, I would have traded every medal, every accommodation for just one more second with you. We’ll be together again, Starbuck, but not now. Soon.
