Episode Details


Guest Cast


Detective Morton: Security monitor records the victim entering the room with a woman at 10:13. Same monitor records a male leaving just after midnight.

Scully: Couldn't she have just changed clothes?

Detective Morton: Thought of that. Male is definitely a different person. Short hair and at least 30 pounds heavier. The video never recorded his entry nor the chippy ever leaving.

Scully: Well, we're 30 floors up, no other means of egress. Did the Medical Examiner establish a case of death?

Detective Morton: Guy blew an artery. Must have been some roll in the hay.

Scully: You think there's a new drug on the streets?

Mulder: The oldest drug, not even illegal. Each body showed the presence of huge amounts of pheremones.

Scully: The chemicals animals secrete? You mean sexual attractants?

Mulder: Radar Love, only about 100 times stronger than found anywhere in nature. Strong enough to produce anaphylactic shock or a coronary.

Scully: So you think sonebody's synthesizing them?

Mulder: It's been done, but in nowhere near these consentrations and hold on to your hat, Scully, because you're gonna love this. The pheremones we're talking about, they contain human DNA.

Mulder: I know, that is a puzzle.

Scully: So, what is our profile of the killer? Indeterminate height, weight, sex; unarmed, but extremely attractive?

Mulder: It gets weirder.

Scully: Aren't they famous for their abstinence and pure Christian ways?

Mulder: Yes, but it looks like one of them may have forgotten to clean under his fingernails.

Scully: There's something up there, Mulder.

Mulder: Ooh, I've been saying that for years.

[The path they are following through the woods peters out]

Mulder: Oh, for a 4-wheel drive.

Mulder: Now, this... that's... west. [Pointing in different directions]

Scully: What does the map say?

Mulder: That we should be there already. [Crumples up and drops the map]

Mulder: The Addams Family finds religion.

Scully: Take me back to the 20th century.

Scully: What are you doing?

Mulder: I'm going back for a little look-see.

Mulder: Maybe they went to the movies. [Noticing that all the Kindred are gone]

Mulder: What the hell were you doing back there?

Scully: I don't know.

Mulder: You don't know?

Scully: No.

Mulder: How're you feeling?

Scully: Better. A little embarrassed, actually.

Mulder: Why? You don't remember any of it.

Mulder: I know what I saw, Scully. And I saw you about to do the wild thing with some stranger.

Michael: The club scene used to be so simple. Off the record

Mulder: Scouts honor.

Scully: We can't rule out the possibility that who we're looking for is a transvestite.

Mulder: I think Don Juan in there knows the difference between the male and female of the species.

Scully: They had no means of transportation...

Mulder: No earthly means of transportation.
