The Blessing Way
Albert Hosteen (Floyd Red Crow Westerman): There is an ancient Indian saying that something lives only as long as the last person who remembers it. My people have come to trust memory over history. Memory, like fire, is radiant and immutable. While history serves only those who seek to control it.
CSM: I want Mulder and I want those files!
Albert Hosteen: You’ll find nothing here.
Scully to Skinner: With all due respect, sir, I think you overestimate your position in the chain of command.
Scully: How much have you had to drink?
Frohike (Tom Braidwood) holding up a bottle: Do you recycle?
Bill Mulder (Peter Donat): The lies I told you were a pox and poison to my soul. And now you are here because of them.
Skinner: You wanna bring me a smoking gun, Scully? Then bring me the tape. Otherwise go home and let us do our job.
The back of Scully’s neck sets off the metal detector
Security Guard: You wearing a necklace or something?
Scully: No, not today.
Security Guard: Then what the hell is that?
Albert Hosteen: You must be careful now to end the ceremony properly. When you leave, you must not do any work, change your clothes, or bathe for four days.
Mulder: That’s really going to cut into my social life.
Scully: You’re not protecting me, you’re protecting yourself.
Well-Manicured Man (John Neville): Why should that surprise you? Motives are rarely unselfish.
Scully: What kind of business are you in?
Well-Manicured Man: We predict the future. The best way to predict the future is to invent it.
