Fight The Future

MULDER: (voiceover) Two men, young, idealistic -- the fine product of a generation hardened by world war. Two fathers whose paths would converge in a new battle -- an invisible war between a silent enemy and a sleeping giant on a scale to dwarf all historical conflicts. A 50-years war, its killing fields lying in wait for the inevitable global holocaust.

Theirs was the dawn of Armageddon. And while the world was unaware, unwitting spectators to the hurly-burly of the decades-long struggle between heaven and earth there were those who prepared for the end; who measured the size and power of the enemy, and faced the choices: stand and fight, or bow to the will of a fearsome enemy. Or to surrender -- to yield and collaborate. To save themselves and stay their enemy's hand. Men who believed that victory was the absence of defeat and survival the ultimate ideology ... No matter what the sacrifice.


MULDER: There must be some kind of mistake. I signed up for the aromatherapy treatment.


MULDER: In secret from the alien colonists. The hybrid program was in cooperation with the aliens but the conspirators never intended to succeed ... to finish the work.

MARITA COVARRUBIAS: They were buying time.

MULDER: To make a vaccine and build a weapon.

MARITA COVARRUBIAS: But Cassandra Spender happened.

MULDER: She's the first, isn't she? She's the first successful alien/human hybrid.

MARITA COVARRUBIAS: If she is... and the aliens learn a hybrid exists... colonization of the planet will begin. With no stopping it.


SCULLY: Mulder, I can prove what you're saying or I can disprove it but not when Diana Fowley is keeping us from even seeing her. Mulder, ask yourself why there is no information whatsoever on Special Agent Diana Fowley. Why she would suddenly happen into your life when you are closer than ever to the truth. I mean, you ... you ask me to trust no one and yet you trust her on simple faith.

MULDER: Because you've given me no reason here to do otherwise.

SCULLY: Well, then I can't help you anymore.

MULDER: Scully, you're making this personal.

SCULLY: Because it is personal, Mulder. Because, without the FBI, personal interest is all that I have. And if you take that away then there is no reason for me to continue.


MULDER: You gave them your children! You gave them your wife! You sent them away ... like they were things.

CIGARETTE SMOKING MAN: We sent them away, Agent Mulder, because it was the right thing to do.

MULDER: You sent them away to be tested on.

CIGARETTE SMOKING MAN: We sent them so they would come back to us. Don't you see? You can't think these choices were made lightly. They were the most painful decisions of our lives. Watching our families' faces...


MULDER: You're a liar. My sister wasn't taken from any hangar. She was abducted from our home right in front of me.

CIGARETTE SMOKING MAN: Because your father was late to understand the necessity. That he, too, must give up one of his children to the alien colonists. The aliens insisted on it. It was the only way they would give us the one thing that we needed. The one thing without which we could not proceed. You see, the alien fetus would give us the alien genome... the DNA with which we could make a human hybrid. A new race, Agent Mulder. An alien/human hybrid who could survive the holocaust.


AD KERSH: You have answers now? Why didn't I hear about those answers before?

MULDER: I've had answers for years.

AD KERSH: Then why didn't we hear about them?

MULDER: Nobody ever listened.


AD KERSH: Who burned those people?

MULDER: They burned themselves. With a choice made long ago by a conspiracy of men who th... thought they could sleep with the enemy. Only to awaken another enemy.

AD KERSH: What the hell does that mean?

MULDER: It means the future is here, and all bets are off.

AD KERSH: Agent Scully, make some sense.

SCULLY: Sir, I wouldn't bet against him.
