The Field Where I Died (4x05)
MULDER: ...at times I almost dream
I, too, have spent a life the sages' way,
And tread once more familiar paths. Perchance
I perished in an arrogant self-reliance
Ages ago; and in that act, a prayer
For one more chance went up so earnest, so
Instinct with better light let in by death,
That life was blotted out-not so completely
But scattered wrecks enough of it remain,
Dim memories, as now, when once more seems
The goal in sight again...
SCULLY: How long have you been married to Ephesian?
MELISSA RIEDAL-EPHESIAN: A year.
MULDER: Does it bother you that he has other wives?
MELISSA RIEDAL-EPHESIAN: "And on that day, seven women shall take hold of one man, saying 'we shall eat our own bread, we shall wear our own apparel, only let us be called by thy name to take away our reproach.'"
SCULLY: That's quite a faith you have in Vernon there, Melissa. I'd have a tough time if my husband had so many children with other women.
SKINNER: Agent Scully, could this be some kind of a stall or a staged diversion? It's my understanding that multiple personalities are rare.
SCULLY: They're extremely rare. In fact, many in the psychiatric community do not believe that dissociative identity disorder exists.
SCULLY: You didn't even have the courage to tell Skinner what you really believe... that Melissa Riedal is being invaded by her past-life incarnations.
MULDER: Because he wouldn't believe me.
SCULLY: I don't believe that you feel responsible for those fifty lives... or Melissa Riedal. You are only responsible to yourself, Mulder.
MELISSA RIEDAL-EPHESIAN: Twenty-sixth of November. 1863. I was here. As were you [Mulder]. This is the field where I watched you die.
MULDER: Ghetto streets... shattered glass... bodies of the dead... I'm a woman... a Jewish woman... Poland. My son is with me. He is Samantha.
THERAPIST: Samantha? I thought Samantha was your sister. MULDER: In this life, she is my son. I see my father. He's dead in the street. He is Scully...
But now... he's gone on now... waiting for us. The souls... come back together... different... but always together... again and again... to learn. I can't go to my father. Gestapo is standing next to him. An officer... he's CIGARETTE-SMOKING MAN... evil returns as evil...
But love... love... souls mate eternal... my... husband... is taken away from me. To the camps. He is Melissa. We're always taken away.
I'm rising... I'm rising now... I'm rising now... high above... my body. Above the field. My face is bloody. Near the bunker... the federals are gone... my sergeant is also dead. He is Scully.
Sarah holds me. She is sad.
She is Melissa. She lives... near... the battle... Hamilton County... her name is Kavanaugh. Sarah Kavanaugh...
And my name... is Sullivan Biddle.
MULDER: My soul is tired. I want to rest.
MULDER: Dana, if, um... early in the four years we've been working together... an event occurred that suggested or somebody told you that... we'd been friends together in other lifetimes... always... wouldn't it have changed some of the ways we looked at one another?
SCULLY: Even if I knew for certain, I wouldn't change a day. Well, maybe that Flukeman thing. I could've lived without that just fine.
