The Goldberg Variation (7x02)
written by Jeffrey Bell
MULDER: Technically, falling 300 feet and surviving isn't a crime.
SCULLY: And your theory is?
MULDER: What if this man had some kind of special capability? Some kind of genetic predisposition towards rapid healing, or tissue regeneration?
SCULLY: So, basically, what if we were looking for Wile E. Coyote? You're saying that he is invulnerable, right? You know in 1998, there was a British soldier who plummeted 4,500 feet when his parachute failed and he walked away with a broken rib.
MULDER: What's your point?
SCULLY: My point is that if there's a wind gust, or a sudden updraft and, plus, if he landed in exactly the right way, I mean, I don't know. Maybe he just got lucky.
MULDER: What if he got really, really lucky? That's your big scientific explanation, Scully? I mean, how many thousands of variables would have to convene in just the right mixture for that theory to hold water?
SCULLY: I don't know.
MULDER: Well, thousands.
SCULLY: You okay, Mulder?
MULDER: Yeah, it's all right. My ass broke the fall.
RICHIE LUPONE: ... everything happens for a reason... only just sometimes it's hard for us to see.
