SCULLY: This outside source, Mulder, what's his interest in this case? What does he want us to uncover?
MULDER: I don't know.
SCULLY: And you're not suspicious that we're being used?
MULDER: We've got dead bodies and confessed murderers. If we're being used, it's to find out the connection. That's what I'm interested in.
MULDER: I just watched thirty-six hours of Bernard Shaw and Bobbie Batista. I'm about ready to kill somebody too.
MULDER: So you think that because Patnik saw this war criminal on television, he was somehow inspired to go out and murder these people?
SCULLY: Well, recent studies have linked violence on television to violent behavior.
MULDER: Yeah, but those studies are based on the assumption that Americans are just empty vessels ready to be filled with any idea or image that's fed to them like a bunch of Pavlov dogs and go out and act on it.
SCULLY: But they believe that the causal connections are there, Mulder.
MULDER: They, studies have also shown causal connections between cow flatulence and the depletion of the ozone layer. What you're talking about is pseudo-science used to make political book.
SCULLY: The doctor suggested amphetamine abuse. Maybe that coupled with, with the disturbing images he was watching, pushed him over the edge.
MULDER: All I know is television does not make a previously sane man go out and kill five people, thinking they're all the same guy. Not even "Must-See TV" could do that to you.
SCULLY: I think television plays a large part in both of these murderers' lives.
MULDER: As it does in almost every American home, but television does not equal violence.
BYERS: You know the way television works?
MULDER: Yeah, you click it on, you have a picture.
LANGLY: It's a rapid series of still pictures fired against the tube.
MULDER: I'm red-green color blind.
SCULLY: I was so sure, Mulder. I saw things and I heard things, and... it was just like the world was turned upside-down. Everybody was out to get me.
MULDER: Now you know how I feel most of the time.
MULDER: Why kill them if you wanted me to expose them?
X: Those were always my orders, Agent Mulder. I was just hoping you'd get to them first.
MULDER: And uncover what? What were they trying to do, manipulate people's behavior? Alter their decision making-process? What to buy, who to vote for?
X: You think they'll stop at commerce and politics?
