Episode Summary

The last known position of the USS Argent was in the Norwegian equivalent of the Bermuda Triangle until a boatload of survivors is found. What particularly catches Mulder's inquisitive eye is that all of these sailors appear to have aged many decades in the course of days.

Episode Details


Guest Cast


Scully: Something very strange is going on here, Mulder.

Mulder: Did they let you in to see Lieutenant Harper?

Scully: Yeah I saw somebody, but whether it was actually the Lieutenant...

Mulder: What do you mean?

Scully: He looked about 90 years old. Off by about half a century. You don't seem too surprised.

Mulder: All in all I've counted nine unexplained disappearances. Each of them passed through here, the 65th parallel.

Scully: Another Bermuda Triangle?

Mulder: It's more like a wrinkle in time if Lieutenant Harper is any indication.

Scully: What is it, Mulder? Why are they so afraid? My father spent the better part of his life at sea, he had a healthy respect for the ocean, but he never feared it. I see fear in these men's eyes.

Scully: Feeling any better?

Mulder: No. You're lucky you inherited your father's legs.

Scully: What?

Mulder: Sea legs.

Henry Trondheim: It's a ghost ship. I mean, look at all this corrosion. No one's been on this ship in 20... 30 years.

Henry Trondheim: I guarantee it was Olaffson's men took my boat and left him stranded here. It's just like these dogs to slit each other's throats.

Scully: Mulder, what do you know about free radicals?

Mulder: Is this a quiz?

Mulder: Trondheim, you keep an eye on Olafsson.

Henry Trondheim: Where are you going?

Scully: Mulder where are we going?

Mulder: I'm not sure yet, but we don't have much time to get there.

Olafsson: You saw what happened to the Captain. It only takes a few hours. But you don't have to die.

Henry Trondheim: We all have to die.

Olafsson: Not like this.

Mulder: I think I lapped George Burns...

Henry Trondheim: Why don't you just go ahead and shoot me. If you think that I'm going to let Mulder have another drop!

Mulder: You're almost out of pages. It's good you kept a record.

Scully: Trondheim's locked himself in the sewerage hold. He's backflushed all our water and he's keeping it for himself. I looked everywhere. And this is all I could find... It's sardine juice, half a dozen lemons and... the water from a snow globe.

[Mulder licks his lips]

Scully: It's not Evian but...

Mulder: You know, I always thought when I got older, I'd maybe take a cruise somewhere. This isn't exactly what I had in mind... The service on this ship is terrible, Scully. It's not fair... It's not our time. We still have work to do...

Scully: As certain as I am of this life, we have nothing to fear when it's over.
