Fight The Future

BJUNES: You work for them too, don't you?

MULDER: Who?

BJUNES: You know who, you look like you might be one yourself.

SCULLY: We work for the FBI, Sir.

BJUNES: Who does the FBI work for?


BJUNES: What kind of Jew trick [resurrection] is this?

MULDER: A Jew pulled it off 2000 years ago.


KENNETH UNGAR: It's called the Sepher Vetzirah. The Book of Creation. The earliest known Hebrew text of man's mystical communion with the divine.


JACOB WEISS: Our synagogue has been vandalized 13 times in the last year. I heard a noise in the attic. I went up to see what it was and he attacked me. It was self-defense.

MULDER: Hanging a man in self defense?

JACOB WEISS: Is it any worse...?


KENNETH UNGAR: The early Cabolists... they believed that a righteous man could actually create a living being from the Earth itself. Fashioned from mud or clay... This creature could only be brought to life by the power of the word. In practical terms... by the direct application of certain secret letter combinations.

MULDER: Combinations found in that book?

KENNETH UNGAR: See... these pages, they're basically instructions for animating the inanimate. And this... this passage here talks about inscribing a single word on the Golem itself.


MULDER: What's the secret word?

KENNETH UNGAR: Emet. See... Aleph, Mem, Tau... Creates the word, Emet.

MULDER: I don't speak Hebrew, I don't know what that means.

KENNETH UNGAR: Truth. Emet means truth. See, Mr. Mulder, therein lies the paradox... because the danger of the truth is contained in the word Golem itself. Which means matter without form, body without soul.

MULDER: So the Golem is an imperfect creation.

KENNETH UNGAR Oh, kind of a monster, really. Unable to speak or feel anything but the most primitive of emotions. It runs amok. It has to be destroyed by its creator.

MULDER: Destroyed, how?

KENNETH UNGAR: By erasing the first letter, Aleph. Emet becomes met... which means dead. Again, Mr. Mulder... the power of letters, not just to create, but to kill.


MULDER: It's not a hoax, Scully. It never was.

SCULLY: Well, who do you think it is? Some kind of a ghost?

MULDER: A ghost is spirit without form. I believe what we're looking for and what we're seeing here, is... is form without spirit. Something called a Golem.

SCULLY: A Golem?

MULDER: It's kind of a man made monster described in Jewish folklore. It's fashioned through mud and then animated through mystical incantation.

SCULLY: Mud!
