Episode Details


Guest Cast


Young Smoking Man: [to Mulder] You're a little spy.

Mulder: What do you think it was?

Scully: it was some kind of seizure, some kind of acute physiological disturbance. I couldn't tell if you lost consciousness, but definitely some kind of clotic event. Kind of an electrical storm in the brain.

Mulder: Brought on by what?

Scully: That's what a specialist is going to have to tell you, Mulder.

Mulder: I feel really... good... right now.

Scully: Mulder, you are not really good.

Scully: They'd like to ask you some questions. I told them about your condition. You don't have to speak to them if you don't want to.

Mulder: You mean not without my attorney present.

Scully: Mulder, I refuse to believe that you had any part in this.

Mulder: I had those peoples' blood on my shirt, Scully. I was missing for two days. I have no recollection of my actions during those two days. There were two rounds discharged from my gun. I had the keys to this house, the keys to their car. Do the words Orenthal James Simpson mean anything to you? [Detective Curtis walks up to the car]

Detective Curtis: How you feeling, Agent Mulder?

Mulder: I'm a little confused.

Scully: Mulder, I'm going to get you out of here.

Mulder: You're a doctor, not a lawyer, Scully.

Mulder: Scully, you don't have to do this.

Scully: Mulder, you have to help me out. There is nothing here that points directly to your guilt. I mean, unless somebody can show me with absolute certainty that you were holding the weapon that killed those two people, that the rest of the narrative is far too convenient and suspect. The drug in your system already suggests other explanations.

Mulder: What, that I was partying with a few senior citizens?

Scully: You're jailing an innocent man.

Detective Curtis: Yeah. Well... this way he won't get lost for two days and do something else he won't remember.

Scully: This is the office of the psychologist that treated Amy Cassandra. Have you been here before?

Mulder: I don't know, but we found my car.

Mulder: I'm fine.

Scully: No, I am not going to take that as an answer. You do not belong at work. You need to be somewhere where you can be monitored. You are a danger to yourself and a danger to me. Are you hearing me?

Mulder: Give me the car keys.

Scully: No. You're not driving, you're not doing anything until these symptoms go away.

Mulder: I don't want these symptoms to go away. Whatever's happening, whatever treatment I've received, is allowing me to go back into my unconscious. The truth is in there — recorded. And I've gotten access to it. What happened to my sister, the reason she was taken, it's beginning to become clear to me. And I need to know that. Now give me the car keys.

Scully: To go where?

Mulder: My mother's, in Greenwich.

Scully: Okay. But I'm driving.

Teena Mulder: I am your mother and I will not tolerate any more of your questions.

Doctor Goldstein: I did nothing wrong.

Mulder: You put a hole in my head!

Scully: What was the last thing he said to you?

Doctor Goldstein: He said he was going to exorcise his demons.

Scully: Are you going to shoot me, Mulder? Is that how much this means to you? Mulder, listen to me. You have been given a powerful hallucinogen. You don't know that these memories are yours. This is not the way to the truth, Mulder. You've got to trust me.
