Fight The Future

SCULLY: You lied. You have seen this before, I can tell. You lied to them.

MULDER: I would never lie. I willfully participated in a campaign of misinformation.


MULDER: It's not important who they are but what they have and I'm sure they have no idea because they pulled us in. I have X-Files. Each case with an element of what we saw tonight. Residual electrostatic charge, internal mutilation without any external causality...

SCULLY: How can the esophagus be crushed without the neck even being touched?

MULDER: Psychokinetic manipulation.

SCULLY: Psychokinesis? You mean how Carrie got even at the prom?

MULDER: The Russians were doing studies on it. The Chinese still are. Their findings are kept secret.


MULDER: What if it's possible somehow to raise a body's electrostatic charge to levels we've been seeing and use that energy to affect objects?

SCULLY: If a person could generate that much energy, their body would break down. They'd start glowing like those lights.

MULDER: Well there's evidence of this all through the x-files. Furniture moving untouched, objects levitating, unexplained electrical discharges. Frequently people who have psychokinetic power are unaware of their own capability.

SCULLY: Are you saying Lauren Kyte crashed our car?

MULDER: Either that or a poltergeist.

SCULLY: They're heeeere...


MULDER: You don't see too many bosses graves without people dancing on it.


SCULLY: I think Howard Graves faked his own death.

MULDER: Do you know how difficult it is to fake your own death? Only one man has pulled it off, Elvis.


MULDER: You may be right.

SCULLY: Wait, you think I'm right?


MULDER: What are you doing, Scully? You don't believe.

SCULLY: Mulder, there's no such thing as ghosts or psychokinesis. I'm sure there's an explanation. But I believe that she believes. And my priority is to get to her help us stop Dorland.

MULDER: Well, we may have just sacrificed our best opportunity to observe spectral phenomena.

SCULLY: I'm giving us a chance to solve a case that's tangible instead of chasing after shadows.


MULDER: Hey, Scully. Do you believe in the afterlife?

SCULLY: I'd settle for a life in this one.

MULDER: Have you ever seen the Liberty Bell?

SCULLY: Yes.

MULDER: You know, I've been to Philadelphia a hundred times and I've never seen it.

SCULLY: You're not missing much. It's just a big bell with a big crack, and you have to wait in a long line.

MULDER: Yeah, but I'd really like to go.

SCULLY: Why now?

MULDER: I don't know. How late do you think they stay open?
