Fight The Future

SCULLY: According to my briefing, the prisoners escaped by hiding in a laundry cart.

MULDER: I don't think the guards are watching enough prison movies.


SCULLY: That's right. We have orders to work with the federal marshals on this manhunt.

TAPIA: Either of you two ever run an escaped convict operation?

MULDER: No.

TAPIA: Well, then you'd be a real big help if you just try to stay out of the way.

MULDER: Oh, we'd be happy to as soon as we can talk to someone in charge.

TAPIA: I'm in charge here.

MULDER: Apparently not or you'd know why our involvement was requested.


MULDER: Well, this isn't the type of thing the F.B.I. normally gets called in on. I got a feeling we're not being told the entire story here.

SCULLY: I've got the same feeling, Mulder.

MULDER: Do you think you could get in there and find out what's going on?

SCULLY: I can try. Where are you going?

MULDER: To see if I can get in the way.


MULDER: My badge number is JTT04710111.


SCULLY: You work for Pinck Pharmaceuticals? How did this happen?

OSBOURNE: We finance exploration of new species from the rain forest with potential drug applications. Three months ago, a field entomologist disappeared in Costa Rica.

SCULLY: Disappeared how?

OSBOURNE: We're not sure. He just sent us some samples of an insect.

SCULLY: Like this? I found this buried in one of the dead prisoners.

OSBOURNE: Faciphaga Emasculata. We were interested in it because of the dilating enzyme it secretes.

SCULLY: Is this what caused the outbreak?

OSBOURNE: No, no, not precisely. The F. Emasculata is a parasitoid, a bug that carries a parasite. In this case, a deadly parasite that attacks the immune system. The pustules are part of the natural reproductive cycle. They're full of the larvae that you see there in the scope.

SCULLY: So the contagion only spreads when the pustules erupt and the larvae that are expelled burrow into the new host.

OSBOURNE: Agent Scully... you were there when the pustule erupted on me... which means you may also be infected.


MULDER: Why weren't we told the truth?

CIGARETTE-SMOKING MAN: We didn't know the truth. What we knew would only have slowed you down.

MULDER: But innocent people could be infected! What you knew could have prevented that.

CIGARETTE-SMOKING MAN: How? In 1988, there was an outbreak of hemmoragic fever in Sacramento, California. The truth would have caused panic. Panic would have cost lives. We controlled the disease by controlling the information.

MULDER: You can't protect the public by lying to them.

CIGARETTE-SMOKING MAN: It's done every day.


MULDER: Okay, listen, Scully. I need to know how this happened. I want you to start documenting everything you can get your hands on. People have to know about the cover-up.

SCULLY: The public?

MULDER: It's a public health crisis.

SCULLY: Mulder, we can't leak this, not until we know more. The fugitive that you're looking for... he might not even be infected.

MULDER: Yeah, but what if he is?

SCULLY: If this gets out prematurely, the panic is going to spread faster than the contagion. Mulder, we can't let this be known.

MULDER: What if someone dies because we witheld what we knew?

SCULLY: What if someone dies because we didn't? There'll be a time for the truth, Mulder, but this isn't it.


SKINNER: Why are you telling me this, Agent Mulder?

MULDER: Because I wanted you to hear it from me before you read it in the papers.

SKINNER: I'd seriously reconsider bringing this to the media if that's your intention.

MULDER: The public has a right to know so it doesn't happen again.

SKINNER: And you're going to prove this elaborate conspiracy with a, an empty package and a dead insect? Leave it alone, Agent Mulder. The epidemic was contained.

MULDER: Eighteen people are dead, and if you're helping them cover the truth behind those deaths, then you're just as guilty as they are.

SKINNER: You really have no idea who you're dealing with, do you?


MULDER: That's why we were given this assignment, right? They knew all along... so that even if we succeeded in finding the truth, we'd be discredited as part of it. Am I right? Am I right?!

SKINNER: You never had a chance, Agent Mulder. For every step you take, they're three steps ahead.

MULDER: Well, what about you, where do you stand?

SKINNER: I stand right on the line that you keep crossing.
