SCULLY: Did you get a composite?

MULDER: Yeah, looks like Kevin was abducted by Homer Simpson's evil twin.


OWEN JARVIS: No. I'm not the one that wants to hurt him.

SCULLY: If it's not you, then who is it?

OWEN JARVIS: I was only asked to protect the boy.

MULDER: By who? Who asked you to protect him?

OWEN JARVIS: God.

MULDER: God! That's quite a long distance call, isn't it?


OWEN JARVIS: You don't understand, unless someone protects Kevin ...

MULDER: It's the end of the world as we know it, right?

OWEN JARVIS: He who has ears, let him hear.

MULDER: And he that has a tongue, let him speak. Now tell me where he is!


OWEN JARVIS: You believe me, don't you? I mean, you must wear that [cross] as a reminder.

SCULLY: Mr. Jarvis, my religious convictions are hardly the issue here.

OWEN JARVIS: But they are. How can you help Kevin, if you don't believe? Even the killer, he believes.

MULDER: And townsfolk wonder why I sleep in on Sunday.


SCULLY: Mulder, would you do me a favor? Would you smell Mr. Jarvis?

MULDER: You want me to smell him? What am I supposed to be smelling?

SCULLY: You don't detect a faint floral odor? Mulder, this man's body is in no way decomposing normally. In catechism, we learned of instances like this - so-called "incorruptibles", whose bodies wouldn't decay and who emitted a smell of flowers.

MULDER: You're serious?

SCULLY: St. Cecilia, St. Francis ...

MULDER: And now you're suggesting that this is St. Owen?


MULDER: Scully, those stories you're referring to are mostly regarded as hagiographic fabrications, not historical truths, just like the occurrence of the stigmata.

SCULLY: Well, what do you think this is?

MULDER: This man? He was rather abnormal in life, maybe he's decomposing abnormally.

SCULLY: Well, isn't a saint or a holy person just another term for someone who's abnormal?

MULDER: Do you really believe that?

SCULLY: I... believe in the idea that God's hand can be witnessed. I believe He can create miracles, yes.

MULDER: Even if science can't explain them?

SCULLY: Maybe that's just what faith is.


MULDER: Have you heard of Jerusalem Syndrome?

SCULLY: Yeah, it's when people who visit the Holy Land suffer religious delusions induced by the journey.

MULDER: Yeah, they return home convinced they're the Messiah, Moses, the Virgin Mary, even the Devil himself.


SCULLY: ... I'm still not sure.

MULDER: Sure of what exactly?

SCULLY: How Kevin was able to be in two places at once... just like St. Ignatius was able to do in the Bible.

MULDER: That was in the Bible. It's a parable, it's a metaphor for the truth, not the truth itself. Why didn't Kevin conveniently bi-locate when Owen Jarvis abducted him from the shelter?

SCULLY: How is it that you're able to go out on a limb whenever you see a light in the sky, but you're unwilling to accept the possibility of a miracle? Even when it's right in front of you.

MULDER: I wait for a miracle every day. But what I've seen here has only tested my patience, not my faith.


PRIEST: Perhaps you saw these things because you needed to.

SCULLY: To find my way back?

PRIEST: Sometimes we must come full circle to find the truth. Why does that surprise you?

SCULLY: Mostly, it just makes me afraid.

PRIEST: Afraid?

SCULLY: Afraid that God is speaking ... but that no one's listening.
