  • Mulder: You know that manslaughter is the least serious murder charge?
  • Scully: You don't say.
  • Mulder: Manslaughter. Literally, the slaughter of a man. Sounds brutal, doesn't it?
  • Scully: Heinous.
  • Mulder: Yet it's the most socially acceptable form of murder.
  • Scully: So you think we should change the name.
  • Mulder: Yes, I do. How about "inadvertent life-ending"?
  • Scully: "Unintentional snuff-out".
  • Mulder: How about "I can't believe it's not murder"?
