Fight The Future

SKINNER: Why are you here, Agent Mulder?

MULDER: I want this case.

SKINNER: I'm fairly certain I've got more than enough competent Agents in here.

MULDER: Ooh, I can see that.

SKINNER: This is a kidnapping, Agent Mulder. A little girl snatched from her bedroom. Basic missionary-style FBI work. It's not an X-File.

MULDER: I'm aware of the facts.

SKINNER: We're trying to rule out all possibilities before we start making any statements.

MULDER: That's what I'm talking about-- ruling out other possibilities.

SKINNER: I can't just give you the case. I have to follow protocol. Behavioral gets first crack, then the people down at N.C.M.E.C.

MULDER: Two, three, four hours-- this case is going to be a circus. Every starstruck attorney in America is going to want to represent these people for free. If somebody doesn't ask the right questions right now they may never get asked.


SCULLY: What are you doing, Mulder?

MULDER: There's something in that abduction note that I've seen before.

SCULLY: That's not what I mean. You're personalizing this case. You're identifying with your sister.

MULDER: My sister was taken by aliens. Did I say anything about aliens, Scully?

SCULLY: There are a lot of good agents up there in Skinner's office who do not have the patience for this.

MULDER: What did I do? I provided a logical counterpoint.

SCULLY: You told them that they were wrong, Mulder.

MULDER: And they are.


MULDER: So how do you explain those two notes written ten years apart could contain the same obscure phrase?

SCULLY: I can't explain it, Mulder, but you're doing exactly what I said. You're personalizing this case.

MULDER: No, I'm going to solve this case. I am going to solve it.

SCULLY: How?

MULDER: I'm going to find those kids.

SCULLY: What if they're dead, Mulder? Don't go looking for something you don't want to find.


MULDER: ...Federal investigation of the case will continue but will no longer focus on the LaPierres as primary suspects. We, uh, we will intensify our search for Amber Lynn and we remain hopeful of her eventual safe return.

SKINNER: Intensify our search where? The twilight zone?

MULDER: I have a corroborating witness.

SKINNER: In state prison.

MULDER: There's a material connection between these two women.

SKINNER: The only connection, Agent Mulder, is you. I've got people busting their butts on this thing, Agent Mulder. Putting together hard evidence, real evidence while you're out gathering Grimm's Fairy Tales from convicted murderers.

MULDER: It doesn't make sense. It's incomprehensible in any kind of a real world way.

SKINNER: I deal in the real world, Agent Mulder. You begged onto this case as part of the solution. All you've done is hand our only suspects the Twinkie Defense.


SCULLY: Sir?

SKINNER: What? What is it, Agent Scully?

SCULLY: I need to have a word with Agent Mulder.

SKINNER: It can wait.

SCULLY: No, it can't, sir.

MULDER: What is it, Scully?

SCULLY: Mulder, your mom's dead.
