Guest Cast


Krycek: I handed this bust to you, Mulder.

Mulder: Oh come on, Krycek.

Krycek: Who do you think sent you those receipts?

Scully: How'd you get involved with these men? [Terrorists]

Krycek: They found me in North Dakota. They liberated me on a salvage hunt. Hey, you go underground, you got to learn to live with the rats.

Mulder: I'm sure you had no trouble adapting.

Krycek: These men are pathetic revolutionaries, who kill innocent Americans in the name of bonehead ideologies.

Mulder: You're full of crap, Krycek. You're an invertebrate scum sucker whose moral dipstick's about two drops short of bone dry.

Krycek: I love this country!

Scully: What do you want, Krycek?

Krycek: Same thing you do. To find the man who tried to kill me. [to Mulder] The same man that's esponsible for your father's death... [to Scully] your sister's.

Scully: You want this man brought to justice?

Krycek: You can't bring these men to justice. They're protected. The laws of this country protect these men under the name of National Security. They know no law.

Mulder: They why don't you put a bullet in his head like you did that man out there?

Krycek: These men, they fear one thing — exposure. You expose him, expose his crimes, you destroy the destroyer's ability to destroy.

Mulder: The only thing that will destroy this man is the truth.

Krycek: The truth, the truth... There is no truth. These men just make it up as they go along. They're the engineers of the future. They're the real revolutionaries. I can get them for you too.

Mulder: We can't help you, Krycek.

Krycek: Mulder, this is just one bomb I'm sitting on. You didn't ask me how many more I know about.

Scully: I s this some kind of a joke?

Krycek: What?

Mulder: Show him.

Krycek: What is it?

Mulder: Expose it for him, Scully. [Scully shows Krycek the contents of the diplomatic pouch — a rock] What did you get for Halloween, Charlie Brown?

[Mulder drags a handcuffed Krycek to Skinner's apartment]

Mulder: This man has information about extreme right militia, that could save the lives of innocent Americans.

Skinner: He'll be safe here. [Skinner punches Krycek in the stomach] Relatively safe.

[Skinner handcuffs Krycek to his balcony handrail]

Krycek: You can't leave me out here. I'm going to freeze to death.

Skinner: Just think warm thoughts.

Scully: What I'm worried about is you, Mulder. How far you'll go. And how far I can follow you.

[Mulder pulls into to he long-term airport parking lot and gets out of the car]

Krycek: Mulder, you're not...

Mulder: I'm leaving the window rolled down. If I'm not back in a week I'll call Agent Scully and to come bring you a bowl of water.

[Mulder returns to the car to find out what Krycek is yelling]

Mulder: What did you say to me?

Krycek: What?

Mulder: You called me a bad name. [Krycek swears at Mulder in Russian] You speak Russian, Krycek?

Krycek: My parents were Cold War immigrants. What's it to you?
