Fight The Future

PRISONER: It is wonderful- the persistence of life.


CIGARETTE-SMOKING MAN: I heard Mulder was captured in Tunguska. I hear now he's escaped. Wake the Russian Bear and it may find we've stolen its honey.


SCULLY: Several of the men on this committee are lawyers. It is my experience that lawyers ask the wrong question only when they don't want the right answer.

SKINNER: Unless Agent Mulder has already found the answers they're looking for.

SCULLY: Or someone wants to make sure that he doesn't find out.


SCULLY: Sir? I need your permission to book two airfares to Boca Raton, Florida. It shouldn't take more than twelve...fifteen hours...but in the event that it does, I need you to stall the committee tomorrow, for the purpose of...

SKINNER: If you explain it to me, Agent Scully, I'm going to have to explain it to them. I suggest you do everything in your power to make it back for tomorrow's session...or I can't help you.


SENATOR SORENSON: What evidence are you then presenting us with today?

SCULLY: Documents and interviews in support of a wide-ranging conspiracy to control a lethal bio-toxin that is, in fact, extra-terrestrial in origin.

SENATOR SORENSON: Well...uh....what are we talking about...? Little green men, here?

SCULLY: No, sir. Not at all.

MULDER: Why is this so hard to believe? When the accepted discovery of life off this planet is on the front page of every newspaper around the world? When the most conservative scientists and science journals are calling for the exploration of Mars and Jupiter? With every reason to believe that life and the persistence of it is thriving outside our own terrestrial sphere? If you cannot get past this, then I suggest this whole committee be held in contempt, for ignoring evidence that cannot be refuted.
