"Am I to understand that you want me to debunk the x-files project, sir ?"
"Sorry, nobody down here but the FBI's most unwanted."
"Do you believe in the existence of extraterrestrials?"
"That's why they put the "i" in FBI."
"Agent Mulder believes we are not alone."
"Well, let's just say that this case has a special distinct smell to it, a certain paranormal bouquet."
Scully: "If I were that stoned..."
Mulder: "Whoo, if you were that stoned, what!?"
Mulder: "Tell me I'm crazy."
Scully: "Mulder, you're crazy."
Deep Throat: Your lives may be in danger.
Deep Throat: You've seen things that weren't to be seen. Care and discretion are now imperative.
Mulder: I saw someth...
Deep Throat: As I said, I can provide you with information, but only so long as it's in my interest to do so.
Mulder: What is your interest?
Deep Throat: The truth.
Mulder: I did see something. But it's gone. They took it from me. They erased it. You have to tell me what it was.
Deep Throat: A military UFO...
Deep Throat: Mister Mulder, why are those like yourself, who believe in the existence of extraterrestrial life on this Earth, are not dissuaded by all the evidence to the contrary.
Mulder: Because, all the evidence to the contrary is not entirely dissuasive.
Deep Throat: Precisely.
Mulder: They are here, aren't they?
Deep Throat: They've been here for a long, long time.
- Fox Mulder: Do you think I'm spooky?
- Dana Scully: Oh my God, Mulder. It smells like... I think it's bile.
- Fox Mulder: Is there any way I can get it off my fingers quickly without betraying my cool exterior?
- Dana Scully: Is this what it takes to climb the ladder, Colton?
- Tom Colton: All the way to the top.
- Dana Scully: Then I can't wait to you fall off and land on your ass.
Fox Mulder: I can't move. So I don't. I just lie there in bed.
Dr. Heitz Werber: Can you see your sister?
Fox Mulder: No, but I can hear her.
Dr. Heitz Werber: What is she saying?
Fox Mulder: She's calling out my name, over and over again. She's crying out for help. But I can't help her. I can't move.
Dr. Heitz Werber: Are you scared?
Fox Mulder: I know I should be, but I'm not.
Dr. Heitz Werber: Do you know why?
Fox Mulder: Because of the voice.
Dr. Heitz Werber: The voice?
Fox Mulder: The voice in my head.
Dr. Heitz Werber: What's it telling you.
Fox Mulder: Not to be afraid. It's telling me that no harm will come to her, and that one day she'll return.
Dr. Heitz Werber: Do you believe the voice?
Fox Mulder: I want to believe.
Fox Mulder: Then what can I say? How can I disprove lies that are stamped with an official seal?
Section Chief McGrath: That will be all, Mr. Mulder.
Mulder: You can deny all the things I've seen, all the things I've discovered, but not for much longer because too many others know what's happening out there. And no one, no government agency, has jurisdiction over the truth.
Section Chief McGrath: Why did you countermand my decision? Mulder's conduct was in clear violation not only of bureau procedures but of federal law.
Deep Throat: Yes.
Section Chief McGrath: I don't understand. The committee's case was air tight. You've ruined the last best chance we had to get rid of him.
Deep Throat: I appreciate your frustration, but you and I both know Mulder's work is a singular passion-- poses a most unique dilemma. But his occasional insubordination is in the end, far less dangerous.
Section Chief McGrath: With respect sir, less dangerous than what?
Deep Throat: Than having him exposed to the wrong people. What he knows... what he thinks he knows... Always keep your friends close, Mr. McGrath... but keep your enemies closer.
Dana Scully: Mulder, the truth is out there... but so are lies.
Fox Mulder: "Comon, Scully, it'll be a nice trip to the forest."
The Erlenmeyer Flask
Deep Throat: Trust... no... one.
Fox Mulder: "I'm not going to give up. I can't give up. Not as long as the truth is out there."
Little Green Men
Fox Mulder: I wanted to believe, but the tools had been taken away. The X-Files had been shut down. They closed our eyes... our voices have been silenced... our ears now deaf to the realms of extreme possibilities.
Fox Mulder: Noho on the rojo.
Fox Mulder: "It looks like I'm going to have to tell Skinner his suspect is a giant bloodsucking worm after all."
Duane Barry: They drew holes into my damn teeth!
X: "They only have one policy: Deny everything."
Cigarette Smoking Man: "Don't try and threaten me, Mulder. I've watched presidents die."
Dana Scully: "You think you can look into the face of pure evil, and then you find yourself paralyzed by it."
Die Hand Die Verletzt
Fox Mulder: "Did you really think you could call up the Devil and ask him to behave?"
Gregor: "We are the last remaining. Unless you protect us, we're already dead."
Alien Bounty Hunter: "Is the answer to your question worth dying for? Is that what you want?"
Fox Mulder: I saw David Copperfield make the Statue of Liberty disappear, once.
Cigarette-Smoking Man: Nothing disappears without a trace. Burn it!
The Blessing Way
Bill Mulder: "If you were to die now, the truth will die and only the lies survive us."
Albert Holsteen: "For something to live, another thing must often be sacrificed."
Clyde Bruckman's Final Repose
Fox Mulder: "If coincidences are just coincidences, why do they feel so contrived?"
War of the Coprophages
Dana Scully: "Just don't look too hard, Mulder. You might not like what you find."
Scully: "Ich habe kein unruhe"
Scully: "speaking of Bill, is he coming ?"
Fox Mulder: "My name is Fox Mulder. Since my childhood, I have been obsessed by a controversial global phenomenon. Since my sister disappeared when I was 12 years old... in what I believe was an alien abduction. My obsession took me to the FBI, where I investigated paranormal science cases through the auspices of a unit known as the X-Files. Through this unit, I could continue my work on the alien phenomenon, and the search for my missing sister. In 1993, the FBI sought to impugn my work, bringing in a scientist and medical doctor to debunk it... which only deepened my obsession for the better part of a decade, during which time that agent, Dana Scully, had her own faith tested. In 2002, in a change of direction and policy, the FBI closed the X-Files, and our investigation ceased. But my personal obsession did not."
Fox Mulder: What? I wasn't gonna shoot the kid. I don't do stairs anymore.
Dana Scully: Mulder, back in the day, I used to do stairs and in three-inch heels.
Fox Mulder: Back in the day. Scully, back in the day is now.
Trashman: The people on the streets, the homeless, the street people, they ain't got no voice, right? They get treated like trash. I mean actual trash. It's like this: you throw your grande cup, or your pop bottle in the right trash can under the sink, recycle's here, trash there, you tie the little bag, you take it outside, put it in the right dumpsters. Pat yourself on the head. You're a good person, yeah? You did the right thing, you fought global warming, you love all the little animals. Well Friday come, Wednesday maybe, garbage man takes the trash away it's not your problem anymore. Magic! But it is your problem, because it piles up in the landfill and the plastics leak toxins into the water and the sky, but if you don't see a problem, there's no problem. Right? People treat people like trash.
Mulder and Scully Meet the Were-Monster
Stoner #2: What would you do if you were a werewolf?
Stoner #1: I'd get high all the time?
Dana Scully: We've been given another case, Mulder. It has a monster in it.
Fox Mulder: Since we've been away, much of the unexplained has been explained.
Fox Mulder: Scully, I gave up profiling before I gave up monsters. You've seen one serial killer, you've seen them all.
Guy Mann: Now, this model comes with 3,000 gigabertz of pixelbits.
Dr. Rumanovitch: It's easier to believe in monsters out there in the world than to accept that the real monsters dwell within us.
Fox Mulder: Okay, I'll do it, I'll kill you.
Guy Mann: Thanks mister, you're like the only nice person I've ever met.
Fox Mulder: So you're agreeing with me?
Dana Scully: No! You're bat-crap crazy!
Guy Mann: My transformation wasn't just physical but mental. I heard a voice in my head. My voice. I became conscious of my own self-consciousness, and then I had my very first thought: I'm naked! I became overcome by some irrational need to cover up.
Guy Mann: Alas, I was human again. I went back to work. But now that I had a job, all I could think about was how much I hated my job. But I was too overcome with human fear to quit. How would I pay my bills? Without a job, I'd... I'd never get a loan and start a mortgage, whatever that is. Already I was terrified I wasn't saving enough for my retirement. And what else was I supposed to do?
Guy Mann: You see, now I possess the one Darwinian advantage that humans have over other animals: the ability to BS my way through anything. I mean, it's better than camouflage!
Fox Mulder: You wouldn't happen to be, uh, BSing me right now all about this, would you?
Fox Mulder: Did you lose someone recently?
Guy Mann: Yeah, myself.
Dana Scully: I think, maybe, my phone isn't working right 'cuz guys don't send me pictures of their junk on it.
Agent Miller: Hello, anyone down here?
Dana Scully: Nobody but the FBI's most unwanted.
Dana Scully: [to Mulder] I've been waiting 23 years to say that!
Fox Mulder: How did it feel?
Dana Scully: Pretty good.
Gupta: The truth
[touches Mulder's chest over his heart]
Gupta: is in here.
Fox Mulder: Yeah, I've heard something like that.
Fox Mulder: You're never "just" anything, to me, Scully.
Dana Scully: This is dangerous.
Fox Mulder: When has that ever stopped us before?
Fox Mulder: I blacked out after Goldman's eyes popped out of his sockets. Believe me, you can't unsee that.
My Struggle II
Cigarette Smoking Man: I've controlled you since before you knew I existed.
Cigarette Smoking Man: Every man has his weakness. Mine was always just cigarettes.
Cigarette Smoking Man: I didn't set out to destroy the world, Mulder. People did.
My Struggle III
Cigarette Smoking Man: Mind if I smoke?
