MULDER: Hey, Scully, maybe if we get really lucky next time they'll let us clean toilet bowls.
SCULLY: You ready to quit?
MULDER: No. That would make way too many people way too happy.
AGENT RITTER: Hey, I'm confused. I thought we were trying to bust this guy not look for reasons to let him go.
SCULLY: I thought we were looking for the truth.
MULDER: Hey, Scully, uh, how's that X-File coming? And before you tell me that it's not an X-File...
SCULLY: It is.
FELLIG: I'm just there to get the shot. I don't take those people. He does.
SCULLY: Who's he?
FELLIG: That's him. He's the one who takes them.
SCULLY: You're saying that this is a photograph of Death itself?
FELLIG: It's a glimpse, just a glimpse.
SCULLY: Mr. Fellig, I know... that you know more about photography than I do but this is just a lens flare.
FELLIG: You're right. I do know more about photography than you do.
SCULLY: You know, most people want to live forever.
FELLIG: Most people are idiots. Which is one of the reasons I don't.
SCULLY: I think you're wrong. How can you have too much life? There's too much to learn, to experience.
FELLIG: 75 years... is enough. Take my word for it. You live forever, sooner or later you start to think about the big thing you're missing and that everybody else gets to find out about but you.
SCULLY: What about love?
FELLIG: What, does that last forever? 40 years ago I drove down to the city hall, down to the hall of records... record archives, whatever they call it. I wanted to look up my wife. It... bothered me I couldn't remember her name. Love lasts... 75 years, if you're lucky. You don't want to be around when it's gone.
SCULLY: Mulder, I don't even know how I entertained the thought. People don't live forever.
MULDER: No, no, I - I... I think he would have. I - I just think that… that death only looks for you... once you seek its opposite.
