Episode Details


Guest Cast


Krycek: Your authority isn't recognised here. Only your lies.

Marita Covarrubias: These are UN peace keepers. This is a mission of mercy.

Krycek: This is a mission of fear. Yours and the men you work for.

Krycek: You tell them to kiss my American ass. [He spits at Marita Covarrubias' feet]

Mulder: A conspiracy, wrapped in a plot, inside a government agenda.

Spender: I'd like to build a reputation here. Not be given one.

Scully: I think I understand.

Well-Manicured Man: [answering phone] Yes.

Krycek: Well, look who's answering the bat-phone!

Well-Manicured Man: Alex Krycek.

Krycek: Those guys too cheap to offer you a pension plan?

Well-Manicured Man: Where are you?

Krycek: I'm in town, actually. New York City.

Scully: Shouldn't that be my picture next to that headline? [All this conjecture about little green men — false, dangerous, delusional] Or is that you just having a little fun?

Mulder: Do I look like I'm having fun, Scully?

Scully: You look constipated, actually.

Mulder: That would make sense. I've had my head up my rear end for the last five years.

Scully: This wouldn't have anything to do with Cassandra Spender?

Mulder: Cassandra Spender is living proof that the truth I've been so boldly seeking for the last five years is the truth of a madman.

Scully: How's that?

Mulder: One more anal-probing, gyro-pyro levitating ecoplasm alien anti-matter story and I'm going to take out my gun and shoot somebody.

Scully: Well... I guess I'm done here. You seem to have invalidated your own work. Have a nice life!

Mulder: You know? You... you try to reveal what's hidden, you try to incite people with the facts, but they'd rather believe some insane nonsense, refusing to believe what our government is capable of.

Scully: You've come a long way, Mulder.

Mulder: Yeah, and still nobody believes me. [Scully is reading the article and gasps] What?

Scully: Cassandra Spender was abducted at Skyland Mountain. That's where I was taken, where Duane Barry took me.

Mulder: The woman is a nut, Scully!

Scully: It says here that she has an implant, at the base of her neck.

Mulder: Where the government no doubt removed her brain? Isn't that what her son's doctors say, Scully?

Scully: Oh, no, he, uh, he asked if you please not talk about this with anyone.

Mulder: Wish granted! [Walking out of the office]

Scully: Mulder, why are you tiptoeing around the obvious fact here? I mean, this is Skyland Mountain. We're right back here on Skyland Mountain.

Mulder: And you think it's related to your abduction from the same place?

Scully: Well you can't deny the connection.

Mulder: You think this is some kind of an abduction scenario?

Scully: No. I'm not saying that.

Mulder: Do you have any evidence of that?

Scully: What do you mean by evidence?

Mulder: That's what I'm asking you.

Scully: Well, you going to give me your theory then?

Mulder: No... I'm going to give you an explanation.

Spender: Agent Mulder, my name's Jeffery Spender.

Mulder: Oh, the son of... the prophet.

Scully: You know Mulder, maybe you shouldn't be so quick to rule out what Cassandra Spender has to say.
