The Calusari (2x21)
written by Sara Charno
DR. BURK: There's clearly a concentration of electromagnetic energy.
SCULLY: So you're saying that, uh, a ghost killed Teddy Holvey.
MULDER: It all checked out, Scully. (hands her the camera) I think from the information here, this is clearly some kind of poltergeist activity.
SCULLY: Mulder, this information is the same reason why you'll see a newspaper photo with Jesus' face appearing in the, in the foliage of an elm tree. It's a chance occurrence of light and shadow.
MULDER: You recognize this?
SCULLY: Sure, it's a swastika.
MULDER: It's also known as a gammadion or a fylfot. It's an ancient symbol used for protection or good luck. It's been used by various cultures since the middle ages.
SCULLY: Have you ever heard of Munchausen by Proxy?
MULDER: Yeah, my grandfather used to take that for his stomach.
SCULLY: It's when a parent or caretaker brings harm to a child by inducing medical symptoms, usually as a way of getting attention or status.
MULDER: Chem-lab analysis of the ash from the Holvey's house. No trace of any metal, no carbon, no oxygen, no nothing.
SCULLY: What do you mean?
MULDER: It contains nothing organic or inorganic. In fact, according to the technicians, this ash doesn't exist.
DR. BURK: Oh, wow. Haven't seen this for a while. Not since India, 1979.
MULDER: Before Chuck succumbed to the glamours of academia, he did a tour of duty on the old hippie trail.
DR. BURK: It's called vibuti - holy ash. Technically, it's known as an apport - something that materializes out of thin air.
SCULLY: Wait a second. Nothing just materializes out of thin air.
DR. BURK: You've read the Bible? You remember the story about Jesus creating the loaves and the fishes?
SCULLY: Yeah, but that was a parable.
DR. BURK: In 1979, I witnessed a guru named Sai Baba create an entire feast out of thin air.
HEAD CALUSARI: The evil that is here has always been. It has gone by different names through history - Cain, Lucifer, Hitler. It does not care if it kills one boy or a million men.
MAGGIE HOLVEY: Michael. He was Charlie's twin. He was stillborn. Steven and I agreed never to tell Charlie about it. My mother, she wanted to perform a ritual of separation when she heard of Michael's death, to divide their souls. She said if we didn't, the world of the dead would follow Charlie.
MULDER: (voiceover) The strange case of Charlie Holvey and the deaths that occurred during his possession by a dark and malevolent force are unsolved... The boy, who will celebrate his tenth birthday next month, remains under the watchful care of his mother. And though I believe him innocent of the crimes, I am disturbed by the warnings of the Calusari that neither innocence nor vigilance may be protection against the howling heart of evil.
