The Beginning (6x01)
written by Chris Carter
AD #1: I see your renowned arrogance has been left quite intact. You're asking us to accept this report of a spaceship buried under polar ice and your death-defying escape from it?
MULDER: The ice had become superheated by the ship as it rose beneath us, causing the ice to collapse.
AD #1: This entire story is essentially unintelligible and, therefore, encourages unintelligible analysis.
MULDER: Well, I was hoping that you'd look more closely at the reports of mine and Agent Scully's medical conditions.
AD #2: These spacelings, Agent Mulder... They weren't something I saw in Men in Black?
MULDER: I didn't see Men in Black.
AD #2: Well, it's a damn good movie.
AD MASLIN: And, so, the plot... I-I'm just trying to get this straight. The plot is for these spacelings to take over the planet aided by a group of men here on earth?
MULDER: A shadow conspiracy within our own government.
AD MASLIN: Who are growing corn in the middle of the desert which features pollen which was genetically altered to hold a virus which will be taken away by bees whose sting transmits the virus, causing the growth of an extraterrestrial biological entity inside the human host?
SCULLY: Mulder, I just want to remind you that by not informing local PD we are in technical violation of state laws prohibiting contamination of a crime scene.
Why do I bother?
SPENDER: Mulder will be back. As long as he lives, he won't give up.
CIGARETTE SMOKING MAN: Well, there's solutions, of course. Simple but extreme solutions. I've used these methods. They have their place. But not here.
SPENDER: You've killed men?
CIGARETTE SMOKING MAN: You can kill a man but you can't kill what he stands for... Not unless you first break his spirit. That's a beautiful thing to see.
SCULLY: Mulder, these are test results. DNA from the claw nail we found matching exactly the DNA from the virus you believe is extraterrestrial.
MULDER: That's the connection.
SCULLY: Which matches exactly DNA that was found in Gibson Praise.
MULDER: Wait a minute. I don't understand. You're saying that Gibson Praise is infected with the virus?
SCULLY: No. It's a part of his DNA. In fact, it's a part of all of our DNA. It's called a genetic remnant. It's inactive junk DNA. Except in Gibson it's turned on.
MULDER: So if that were true, that would mean that Gibson is in some part extraterrestrial.
SCULLY: It would mean that all of us are.
