Fight The Future

SCULLY: Mulder, you brought me out here on the pretense of investigating an unexplained death. Can you tell me why we're standing out here in the middle of a field looking at a dead goat?

MULDER: Well, according to eyewitnesses, the death we're investigating was preceded by a Fortean event. That's a highly unusual or infrequent meteorological phenomenon also known as a transient.

SCULLY: A transient.

MULDER: Yeah. Witnesses described a bright flash about 30 degrees off the horizon, then a hot yellow rain fell from a cloudless sky. Fortean researchers call these "liquid falls." Black and red rains are the most common, but there have also been reported cases of blue, purple and green rains.

SCULLY: Purple rain?

MULDER: Yeah. Great album. Deeply flawed movie, though.


MULDER: It doesn't make a whole lot of sense, Scully.

SCULLY: It makes perfect sense, Mulder. Admit it. You fell for it. Your "Fortean Event" turned out to be nothing more than the oldest story in the world. Two men. One woman. Trouble.


STEEN: What you're looking at, Agent Scully, is the most ubiquitous fungal spore known to mankind - dermatophytosis.

SCULLY: Athlete's foot?

STEEN: One of the survivors of countless extermination efforts. Historically underrated. And unfairly overshadowed by the ever-popular cockroach.


LOZANO: A man cannot live with vengeance in his heart.


MULDER: Scully, I've been thinking. I know that's dangerous, but just bear with me. These Fortean transients that the women described? They could have been caused by an object falling at a high rate of speed through the atmosphere creating a sonic boom and a flash of light. What astronomers call a bollide.

SCULLY: A bollide?

MULDER: Created by a meteorite or a piece of extraplanetary material - of which two thousand tons falls to the Earth every day. Now - now this yellow rain. Space debris could have fallen into a nearby lake superheating the water and sending it skyward. Which would mean this is alien.


MULDER: The truth is, nobody cares.
