Beyond The Sea (1x12)
"The Truth Is Out There"
MULDER: At the age of six, Luther Boggs slaughtered every pet animal in his housing project. When he was thirty, he strangled five family members over Thanksgiving dinner and then sat down to watch the fourth quarter of the Detroit - Green Bay game. Some killers are projects of society. Some act out past abuses. Boggs kills because he likes it.
SCULLY: And they've requested you speak with him?
MULDER: Actually, he's requested to speak to me.
SCULLY: Why you?
MULDER: He read my profile on him and he believes I'm the only one who truly understands what he is.
MULDER: Why did you lie in your police report?
SCULLY: I thought it would be a better explanation under the circumstances.
MULDER: What you're really saying is that you didn't want to go on record admitting that you believed in Boggs! The bureau would expect something like that from "Spooky" Mulder, but not Dana Scully.
SCULLY: I thought that you'd be pleased that I opened myself to extreme possibilities.
MULDER: Dana... open yourself up to extreme possibilities only when they're the truth.
SCULLY: You set us up. You're in on this with Lucas Henry. This was a trap for Mulder because he helped put you away. Well, I came here to tell you that if he dies because of what you've done, four days from now, no one will be able to stop me from being the one that will throw the switch and gas you out of this life for good, you son of a bitch!
BOGGS: There was that one time when I was fourteen and my parents had gone to bed and I snuck downstairs all alone. Got one of my mom's cigarettes and went out onto the porch in the dark. I was so scared. My heart was beating, I mean, they would have killed me if they knew. But I was so excited. Not 'cause of the cigarette, I mean, it was gross, but because I wasn't supposed to.
MULDER: Dana. After all you've seen, after all the evidence, why can't you believe?
SCULLY: I'm afraid. I'm afraid to believe.
