MULDER: Modell refers to himself as "pusher". Technically speaking, all of his victims' wounds were self-inflicted. This man has a unique ability to force his will upon others - to push his victims into hurting or killing themselves.
SECOND MARSHALL: Say what?
MULDER: OK, look, this is all you need to know. Do not trust this man, do not talk to him, do not engage him in conversation, even if he is unarmed. Approach him only with extraordinary caution, and then only with adequate backup.
FIRST MARSHALL: So what's adequate backup?
MULDER: Adequate backup? Every cop you can lay your hands on.
SCULLY: Is it possible that he could have mentioned you to Robert Modell?
LINDA BOWMAN: No, no, I sincerely doubt it. You see, Nathan and I, we were only married two months.
MULDER: How long did you know him?
LINDA BOWMAN: Well... it was two months and two days. Well, why wait when it's true love? You never know how long you have.
MULDER: No, you don't.
SKINNER: I just want to say you did a good job.
MULDER: How's that?
SKINNER: Nobody could have figured this out but you. You knew it was Linda Bowman and not Modell. You were way ahead of me.
MULDER: I almost killed my partner.
SKINNER: Mulder, despite that, you prevailed. You won her game.
MULDER: Then how come I feel like I lost?
