"What I find fantastic is the notion that there are answers beyond the realm of science. The answers are there, you just have to know where to look."--Pilot 

"Agent Mulder believes we are not alone."--Pilot 

"Mulder, you're crazy."--Deep Throat 

"Then I can't wait 'till you fall off and land on your ass!"--Squeeze

Keep it up, Mulder, and I'll hurt you like that beast woman."--Jersey Devil  

"Wait....You think I'm right?"--Shadows 

"Yeah...ranks right up there with getting a pony and learning to braid my own hair."--Space

"Mulder, you just keep unfolding like a flower."--Fire 

"I'm here to tell you that if he dies because of what you've done, four days from now, no one will stop me from being the one to throw the switch and gas you out of this life for good, you son-of-a-bitch!"--Beyond the Sea 

"So what is our profile of the killer? 'Indeterminate height, weight, sex; unarmed, but extremely attractive'?"--Genderbender 

"Mulder, the truth is out there, but so are lies."--E.B.E. 

"A healer's greatest magic lies in the patient's willingness to believe; Imagine a miracle, and you're halfway there."--Miracle Man 

"Oh, a BRAIN-sucking amoeba."--Darkness Falls

"My instinct tells me that burial in cement is murder."--Tooms

"Mulder, TOADS just fell from the sky!"--Die Hand Die Verletzt 

"Do you recall what Barnum said about suckers?"--Humbug 

"Many of the things I have seen have challenged my faith and my belief in an ordered universe. But this uncertainty has only strengthened my need to know... to understand... to apply reason to those things that seem to defy it. It was science that isolated the retrovirus Agent Mulder was exposed to and science that allowed us to understand its behavior. And ultimately, it was science that saved Agent Mulder's life."--End Game

"Believing is the easy part, Mulder. I just need more than you. I need proof."--Nisei 

"Don't you see, Mulder? You're doing their work for them. You're chasing aliens that aren't there, helping them to create a story to cover the shameful truth. And what they can't cover they apologize for. Apology has become policy."--731

"Afraid that God is speaking...but that no one's listening."--Revelations 

"Mulder, I think the only thing more fortuitous than the evolution of life on this planet is that through purely random laws of biological evolution an intelligence as complex as ours ever emanated from it.

"Mulder, are you sure it wasn't a girlie scream?--War of the Coprophages

"Sure. Fine. Whatever."--Syzygy 

"Shut up, Mulder."--Syzygy

"Maybe we bury the dead alive."--Apocrypha 

"Please explain to me the scientific nature of 'the whammy.'"--Pusher 

"Mulder, you're nuts!"--Jose Chung's from Outer Space 

"I know it probably doesn't have the sense of closure that you want, but it has more than some of our cases."--Jose Chung's from Outer Space 

"Well, he didn't say 'bleep,' he said...."--Jose Chung's from Outer Space 

"They found your bleep'n UFO."--Jose Chung's from Outer Space  

"Whatever extreme cases I have encountered, I have always viewed through the lens of science."--Avatar

"Even if I knew for certain, I wouldn't change a day...well...maybe that Flukeman thing... I could have lived without that just fine."--The Field Where I Died 

"I left behind a career in medicine to become an FBI agent four years ago because I believed in this country. Because I wanted to uphold its laws, to punish the guilty, and to protect the innocent. I still believe in this country. But I believe there are powerful men in the government who do not. Men who have no respect for the law and who flaunt it with impunity...."--Tunguska 

"What I am saying is that there is a culture of lawlessness that has prevented me from doing my job. That the real target of this committee's investigation should be the men who are beyond prosecution and punishment. The men whose secret policies are behind the crimes that you are investigating."--Tunguska 

"Mulder, they're worms."--Leonard Betts 

"Your contact, while interesting in the context of science fiction, was, at least in my memory, recounting a poorly veiled synopsis of an episode of 'Rocky and Bullwinkle.'"--Never Again 

"Not everything is about you, Mulder. This is my life."--Never Again 

"Mulder, whatever you found or whatever you might find, I think that we both know that right now the truth is in me, and that's where I need to pursue it."--Memento Mori 

"I'm fine....Quit staring at me, I'm fine!"--Memento Mori 

The Memento Mori Journals 

For the first time, I feel time like a heartbeat, the seconds pumping in my breast like a reckoning. The numinous mysteries that once seemed so distant and unreal, threatening clarity in the presence of a truth entertained not in youth, but only in its passage. I feel these words as if their meaning were weight being lifted from me, knowing that you will read them and share my burden, as I have come to trust no other. That you should know my heart, look into it, finding there the memory and experience that belong to you, that are you, is a comfort to me now as I feel the tethers loose and the prospects darken for the continuance of a journey that began not so long ago, and which began again with a faith shakened and strengthened by your convictions. If not for which I might never have been so strong now as I cross to face you and look at you incomplete, hoping that you will forgive me for not making the rest of the journey with you.

In med school I learned that cancer arrives in the body unannounced, a dark stranger who takes up residence, turning its new home against itself.  This is the evil of cancer, that it starts as an invader, but soon becomes one with the invaded, forcing you to destroy it but only at the risk of destroying yourself.  It is science's demon possession, my treatment, science's attempt at exorcism.  Mulder, I hope that in these terms you might know it and know me and accept this stranger some may recognize but cannot ever completely cast out. And if the darkness should have swallowed me as you read this, you must never think there was the possibility of some secret intervention, something you might have done. And though we've traveled far together, this last distance must necessarily be traveled alone.

I have not written to you in the last 24 hours because the treatment has weakened my spirit as well as my body. Mulder, it's difficult to describe to you the fear of facing an enemy which I can neither conquer nor escape. Penny Northern has taken a downturn. I now look at her with a respect that can only come from one who is about to walk the same dark path. Seeing her I can't help but see myself in a month or a year. I pray that I have her courage to face this journey. Mulder, I feel you close though I know you are now pursuing your own path. For that I am grateful, more than I could ever express. I need to know you're out there if I am ever to see through this.

"Dog years? Thank you."--Tempus Fugit 

"Oh, promise me this isn't leading to something really embarrassing."--Tempus Fugit 

"You sure know how to make a girl feel special on her birthday."--Tempus Fugit 

"Look, we still haven't celebrated my birthday, Pendrell. I'm not going to let you off the hook like this."--Max 

"He's an FBI agent, and he's not going to die."--Max

"Mulder, what are these people dying for? Is it for the truth or for the lies?"--Max 

"I think you were actually kindred spirits in some deep, strange, way....Men with Spartan lives, simple in their creature comforts, if only to allow for the complexity of their passions."--Max

"I realize I didn't even know his first name."--Max

"I think that you appreciate that there are extraordinary men and women and extraordinary moments when history leaps forward on the backs of these individuals. That what can be imagined can be achieved. That you must dare to dream, but that there's no substitute for perseverance and hard work...and team work; because no one gets there alone. And that while we commemorate the greatness of these events and the  individuals who achieved them, we cannot forget the sacrifice of those who made these achievements and leaps possible."--Max 

"If he would lie for you what makes you think he wouldn't lie to you."--Synchrony 

"Did he have a light saber?"--Small Potatoes 

"On behalf of all the women in the world, I seriously doubt that this has anything to do with consensual sex."--Small Potatoes 

"I would have thought that after four years you'd know exactly what that look was."--Elegy 

"I guess I never realized how much I rely on him before this. His passion....He's been a great source of strength that I've drawn on."--Elegy 

"Mulder, you are not 'really good.'"--Demons 

"Are you going to shoot me? Is that how much this means to you?"--Demons 

"This is not the way to the truth, Mulder. You've got to trust me."--Demons 

"...I'm concerned that this experience will have a lasting effect... Agent Mulder undertook this treatment hoping to lay claim to his past. That by retrieving memories lost to him, he might finally understand the path he's on. But if that knowledge remains elusive, and if it's only by knowing where he's been that he can understand where he's going, then I fear Agent Mulder may lose his course; and the truths he's seeking from his childhood will continue to evade him, driving him more dangerously forward in impossible pursuit."--Demons 

"I have strength, and I'm not going to come running back now. It's just not who I am. I'd be lying to myself and to you."--Gethsemane 

"Mulder, the only lie here is the one that you continue to believe."--Gethsemane 


"The cruelest ironies are those consecrated by the passage of time, chanced and occasioned by shocking discovery. I had joined Agent Mulder on the X-Files because of my background in the medical sciences. My assignment was to question his work, to debunk his investigations, and to reign him back into the FBI mainstream. Now, as fate would have it, I am calling on these very same skills to prove that he has been the target of a scheme orchestrated by someone close to us in the FBI. Someone we have trusted above all others, involved in a highly organized plot to keep a dangerous secret from the light of day." --Redux 

"I have few short hours to conduct these tests before I must appear before an FBI panel to explain myself. And as I am ready to lie to them about Agent Mulder, I am also ready to confront them with proof--proof extracted from this tiny organism--that could blow open a conspiracy of global consequence."--Redux 

"If my work with Agent Mulder has tested the foundation of my beliefs, science has been and continues to be my guiding light. Now I'm again relying on its familiar and systematic methods to arrive at a truth, a fact that might explain the fate that has befallen me. An investigation that began without, now turning within."--Redux 

"If science serves me to these ends, it is not lost on me that the tool with which I've come to depend on absolutely cannot save or protect me, but only bring into focus the darkness that lies ahead."--Redux 

"That would mean that for four years we've been nothing more than pawns in a game...that it was a lie from the beginning."--Redux 

"Mulder, these men....You give them your faith, and you're supposed to trust them with your life."--Redux 

"It's got to happen. Everything in my life depends upon it."--Redux 

"All lies lead to the truth. Isn't that right?"--Redux 

"What I have here is proof undeniable that the men who gave me this disease were also behind the hoax. A plot designed to lead to Agent Mulder's demise and to my own, planned and executed by someone in this room. What I have here is scientific evidence."--Redux 

"Mulder, if I can save you, let me. Let me give at least some meaning to what's happened to me."--Redux II 

"I think that everybody here has their heart in the right place, but I need it to be my decision." --Redux II 

"Have you ever witnessed a miracle, Dr. Zuckerman?"--Redux II 

"I've come so far in life on simple faith, and now when I need it the most, I just push it away." --Redux II 

"I must remind you that this goes against the Bureau's policy of male and female agentsconsorting in the same hotel room while on assignment."--Detour 

"Mulder, we're in Western Florida. The closest thing to primitive down here is living in a beachfront retirement condo."--Detour 

"I identified with Betty's bustline."--Detour 

"You know, Mulder, sometimes I think some work on your communication skills wouldn't be such a bad idea."--Detour 

"What would that be filed next to? The cockroach that ate Cincinnati?"--Detour 

"Maybe if it rains sleeping bags, you'll get lucky."--Detour 

"When I was fighting my cancer, I was angry at the injustice of it and its meaninglessness, and then I realized that that was the struggle--to give it meaning; to make sense of it."--Detour 

"There has to be a scientific explanation for this."--Detour 

"Is there anything that you *don't* believe in, Mulder?"--Post Modern Prometheus 

"Several months ago, I learned that as a result of my abduction--of what they did to me--that I cannot conceive a child....I just never realized how much I wanted it until I couldn't have it."--Christmas Carol 

"To be honest, I've started to question my priorities since I was first diagnosed with cancer, and I feel like I've been given a second chance."--Christmas Carol 

"Ever since I was a child, I never allowed myself to get too close to people. I've avoided emotional attachments. Perhaps I've been so afraid of death and dying, that any connection just seemed like a bad thing--something that wouldn't last. But I don't feel that anymore."--Christmas Carol 

"I don't believe in fate. I think we have to choose our own path."--Christmas Carol 

"It begins where it ends--in nothingness. A nightmare born from deepest fears coming to me unguarded. Whispering images unlocked from time and distance. A soul unbound, touched by others but never held, on a course chartered by some unseen hand. The journey ahead promising no more than my past reflected back upon me until at last I reach the end--facing a truth I can no longer deny. ever."--Emily 

"I can protect her too."--Emily 

"I am a medical doctor, and the decisions that I make are reasonable and right."--Emily 

"Do you think that I don't want what's best for this child? Do you think that I'm not trying to save her life?"--Emily 

"Mulder, whoever brought this child into this world didn't intend to love her."--Emily 

"You were right. This child was not meant to be."--Emily 

"Who are the men who would create a life whose only hope is to die?"--Emily 

"I'm on vacation."--Chinga 

"I was hoping for something a little more helpful."--Chinga 

"New England hospitality. Heard about it all my life... Finally got a chance to experience it for myself."--Chinga 

"I've been thinking that maybe we need to explore other possibilities... Well, maybe we need to keep our minds open to extreme possibilities."--Chinga 

"That looks like something out of Jules Verne. We're suppose to eat that?"--Chinga 

"Mulder, are there any references in occult literature to objects that have the power to direct human behavior? a doll, for instance?"--Chinga 

"Oh, I don't know. I think some things are better left unexplained."--Chinga 

"And what was your role in this? Were you the bass player?"--Killswitch 

"Your name is Esther Nairn?"--Killswitch 

"Oh, right. Death from above."--Killswitch 

"Aren't you worried it's gonna track you down, Esther? Hunt you down with its particle beam?"--Killswitch 

"Did anyone think to check his email?"--Killswitch 

"I didn't do the...with the thing!"--Bad Blood 

"Tonight? I just put money in the Magic Fingers!"--Bad Blood 

"Hoo-boy!"--Bad Blood 

"If there's a point, Mulder, please feel free to come to it."--Bad Blood 

"Anyway, I was drugged."--Bad Blood 

"It's not that Mexican goat-sucker either."--Bad Blood 

"Yee-haw."--Bad Blood 

"What do you mean you want me to do another autopsy? And why do I have to do it right now? I just spent hours on my feet doing an autopsy all for you! I do it all for you, Mulder! You know, I haven't eaten since six o'clock this morning. And all that was was a half of a cream cheese bagel, and it wasn't even real cream cheese, it was light cream cheese! And now you want me to run off and do another autopsy? What the hell  happened to you?"--Bad Blood 

"Don't you touch that bed!"--Bad Blood 

"Creep."--Bad Blood 

"You're saying that I actually hit him two times? And then he sort of flew at me like a flying squirrel?"--Bad Blood 

"Why would a real vampire need fake fangs? I mean...for the sake of arguement."--Bad Blood 

"Mulder, it's not just me. Nobody in their right mind will ever believe that story."--Bad Blood 

"Shouldn't that be my picture next to that headline?"--Patient X 

"You look constipated, actually."--Patient X 

"Well I guess I'm done here. You seem to have invalidated your own work. Have a nice life."--Patient X 

"Mulder, why are you tiptoeing around the obvious facts? I mean, this is Skyland Mountain. We're right back here on Skyland Mountain."--Patient X 

"You know Mulder, maybe you shouldn't be so quick to rule out what Cassandra Spender has to say."--Patient X 

"Mulder, when I met you five years ago, you told me that your sister had been aliens--that that event had marked you so deeply that nothing else mattered. I didn't believe you, but I followed you on nothing more than your faith that the truth was out there--based not on facts, not on science, but on your memories that your sister had been taken from you. Your memories were all that you had...."--The Red and the Black 

"Whether you trust them or not, they've led you here--and me, but I have no memories to either trust nor distrust. And if you ask me now to follow you again, to stand behind you in what you now believe, without knowing what happened to me out there, without those memories....I can't...I won't."--The Red and the Black 

"OH MY GOD!"--The Red and the Black 

"How else did she see...batvision?"--Mind's Eye 

"Father, I'm an FBI Agent. I've taken it as my code and purpose to uphold the law, to save lives." --All Souls 

"Father, I told you I had a sin to confess, but for the sin of which I'm guilty, I'm not sure you can offer forgiveness. An innocent girl is dead because of me. I could have saved her life, but I let her die." --All Souls 

"As much as I have my faith, Father, I am a scientist, trained to weigh evidence. But science only teaches us how, not why."--All Souls 

"I brought Agent Mulder on the case to help temper my feelings, to keep them from clouding my judgement. I wouldn't admit it to him, but as we stood there, I felt as if Father Gregory were speaking directly to me in a language only I could understand."--All Souls 

"I was raised to believe that God has his reasons, however mysterious."--All Souls 

"I told myself that it was all in my head, an hallucination brought on by my emotional connection to the case, but that's not what it was, Father. I was meant to see Emily for a purpose--to save these girls."--All Souls 

"I've seen things, things that have made me question if there aren't larger forces at work here."--All Souls 

"Maybe that's what faith is."--All Souls 

(Hotel clerk) "Are you the wife?" (Scully) "Not even close."--Pine Bluff Variant

"Exactly what agency are you guys from? (pause) Obviously not the Office of Information."--Pine Bluff Variant 

"You knew about this all along! You knew about this the whole time!"--Pine Bluff Variant 

"Folie a Deux--A madness shared by two."--Folie a Deux 

"Analyze the data...with an eye to the parapsychological."--The End 

"Mulder, whatever you may believe, this time, they may have won."--The End 

THE X-FILES MOVIE: Fight the Future

"I had you big time."--FTF 

"Don't think! Just pick up the phone and make it happen!"--FTF 

"There's no time!"--FTF 

"Are you drunk, Mulder?"--FTF 

"I don't know what killed this man. I'm not sure anybody else could claim to either."--FTF

"I'm already way past the point of common sense here."--FTF 

"We've got two choices. One of them is wrong."--FTF 

"They haul gas in tanker trucks. They haul oil in tanker trucks. They do not haul viruses in tanker trucks."--FTF 

"You're on the verge, Mulder. Please don't do this to me."--FTF 

"If we quit now, they win."--FTF 

"I don't believe the FBI currently has an investigative unit qualified to pursue the evidence in hand."--FTF 


"Why do I bother?."--The Beginning 

"You told me that my science kept you honest...that it made you question your assumptions...that by it, I'd made you a whole person. If I change wouldn't be right...or honest."--The Beginning 

"It comes down to a matter of trust. I guess it always has."--The Beginning 

"I'm asking you to trust my judgement. To trust me."--The Beginning 

"Save your own ass, sir. You'll save your head along with it."--Triangle 

"I want you to do me a favor. It's not negotiable. Either you do it, or I kill you. You understand?"--Triangle

"I'm a gun ready to go off, so don't test me, Spender. Don't even think about trying to weasel me!"--Triangle 

"I don't care what you do or who you do or who you have to grease."--Triangle 

"That rat bastard!"--Triangle 

"You did something incredibly stupid."--Triangle 

"Oh, brother."--Triangle 

"I want you to close your eyes, and I want you to think to yourself, 'there's no place like home.'"--Triangle

"I'm all a-tingle."--Dreamland I 

"Not us. We, we just keep on driv'n...."--Dreamland I 

"Don't you ever want to stop? Get out of the damn car?"--Dreamland I 

"Whatever happened to protecting our contacts, protecting our work?" -- Dreamland I

"Mulder, you are acting BIZARRE!"--Dreamland I 

"You know what would be fun?"--Dreamland II 

"'Baby' me and you'll be peeing through a cathetar."--Dreamland II 

"I'd kiss you if you weren't so damned ugly...."--Dreamland II

"A man... controlling... the weather." --Rain King

"My Irish Aunt Olive has more Cherokee in her" --Rain King

"Mulder, did they check you for head trauma?" --Rain King

"The blind leading the blind." --Rain King

"Well it sems to me that the best relationships, the ones that last, are frequently the ones that are rooted in friendship. You know one day you look at the person and you see something more than you did the night before - like a switch has been flicked somewhere - and the person who was just a friend is suddenly the only person you can ever imagine yourself with." --Rain King

"Look, if you want to save this man listen to what I am saying." --S.R. 819

"Yeah you got so much game I'm wondering if you've got and work left in you." --Two Fathers

"Mulder this stinks and not just because I think that woman is a ... well I think you know what I think that woman is." --One Son

"You ask me to trust no one and yet you trust her on simple faith." --One Son

"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." --One Son 

"So stand back or make yourself useful, but stay out of my way."--Agua Mala

"Mulder, this is not reality." --Field Trip

"No, it is NOT the obvious answer." --Field Trip

"Mulder can't you just for once, just for the novelty of it, come up with the simplest explanation - the most logical one - instead of automatically jumping to UFOs or Bigfoot." --Field Trip

"Will this all end one day? Life no longer passing to life, the earth left barren like the stars above like the cosmos?  Will the hand that lit the flame let it burn down? Let it burn out? Could we, too, become extinct? Or if this fire of life living inside us is meant to go on, who decides? Who tends the flames?  Can He reignite the spark even as it grows cold and weak?" --Biogenesis


"I came in search of something I did not believe existed. I've stayed on now, in spite of myself. In spite of everything I've ever held to be true. I will continue here as long as I can... as long as you are beset by the haunting illness which I saw consume your beautiful mind. What is this discovery I've made? How can I reconcile what I see with what I know? I feel this was meant not for me to find but for you ? to make sense of-- make the connections which can't be ignored... connections which, for me, deny all logic and reason. What is this source of power I hold in my hand-- this rubbing-- a simple impression taken from the surface of the craft? I watched this rubbing take its undeniable hold on you, saw you succumb to its spiraling effect. Now I must work to uncover what your illness prevents you from finding. In the source of every illness lies its cure." --The Sixth Extinction

"He's not dying. He is more alive than he has ever been. He's more alive than his body can withstand and what's causing it may be extraterrestrial in origin." --The Sixth Extinction

"Mulder, it's me. I know that you can hear me. If you can just give me some sign. I want you to know where I've been... what I found. I think that, if you know, that you could find a way to hold on. I need you to hold on. I found a key... the key... to every question that has ever been asked. It's a puzzle? but the pieces are there for us to put together and I know that they can save you if you can just hold on. Mulder... please. Hold on." --The Sixth Extinction

"Are you asking me to pray?" --The Sixth Extinction II: Amor Fati

"I don't know what to believe anymore. Mulder, I was so determined to find a cure to save you that I could deny what it was that I saw and now I don't even know... I don't know... I don't know what the truth is ? I don't know who to listen to. I don't know who to trust." --The Sixth Extinction II: Amor Fati

your sister. She was just trying to take away your pain."

"I'm going to go home, take a shower for, I don't know eight or nine hours, burn the clothes that I'm wearing and then... sleep until late spring." --Chimera

"Time passes in moments... moments which, rushing past define the path of a life just as surely as they lead towards its end. How rarely do we stop to examine that path, to see the reasons why all things happen, to consider whether the path we take in life is our own making or simply one into which we drift with eyes closed. But what if we could stop, pause to take stock of each precious moment before it passes? Might we then see the endless forks in the road that have shaped a life? And, seeing those choices, choose another path?" --all things

"I'm in love with Associate Producer Walter Skinner." --Hollywood AD

"What I'm thinking, Mulder, is how familiar this seems. Playing
Watson to your Sherlock. You dangling clues out in front of me one by one. It's a game, and... and, as usual, you're, you're holding something back from me. You're not telling me something about this case."
--Fight Club

"Well, I guess that's why they put the "I" in the FBI." --Fight Club

"Maybe it's the whole point of our lives here, Mulder-- to achieve that. Maybe it's a process that one man shouldn't try and circumvent with a single wish." --Je Souhaite
