Margaret Scully (Sheila Larken): Let me go. I have to get in!
Mulder: Mrs. Scully? She’s not in there.
Margaret Scully: Where is she? Where is she?

Skinner (Mitch Pileggi): According to the reports I’ve reviewed, Agent Scully’s research states that Duane Barry’s propensity for violent, deviant behavior is due to brain damage from a bullet wound in the head. Is this the operational opinion?
Krycek (Nicholas Lea): Yes sir.
Skinner: Is there another?
Krycek: He’s convinced he’s going to be abducted by aliens. That by taking someone to the abduction site he won’t be abducted himself.
Skinner: That he’s following orders from alien voices in his head?
Krycek: Yes.
Skinner: Well that’s an interesting spin on the Nuremberg Defense.

Patrolman: Sir, put your hands on the steering wheel where I can see them.
Duane Barry: You don’t understand. They’re waiting for me. I can’t be late.

Krycek: How’d you sleep?
Mulder: I didn’t.

Krycek on the phone: He thinks Scully’s been taken up to Skyland Mountain. I’ll hold him off until they locate her.

Krycek: You really think he tracked her down with that implant.
Mulder: Well that’s the easiest explanation. It’s also the most implausible.
Krycek: So is there another possibility?
Mulder: Somebody could have given him her address. I don’t know who.

Mulder: Where is she?
Duane Barry: I’m free you sons of bitches! You can’t touch Duane Barry anymore!
Mulder: Don’t move! Don’t move!
Duane Barry: I’m not going anywhere!
Mulder: Where is she? Where’d you leave her?!
Duane Barry: They took her!
Mulder: Who?
Duane Barry: Them! I told you they would take somebody else. They did!

Mulder: And where did you take her?
Barry: I didn’t. They did. That was the deal—her instead of me.
Mulder: Did you kill her?
Barry: No. I swear.

Krycek: If Mulder’s such a threat why not eliminate him?
CSM (William B. Davis): That’s not policy.
Krycek: It’s not? After what you had me do?
CSM: Kill Mulder and you risk turning one man’s religion into a crusade.
Krycek: What about Scully?
CSM: We’ve taken care of that.
Krycek: How?
CSM: We tell you only what you need to know.
Krycek: I think I have a right to know.
CSM: You have no rights. Only orders to be carried out. You have a problem with that, we’ll make other arrangements.

Mulder: There is another plausible cause of death.
Skinner: Which is?
Mulder: Poisoning by injection or ingestion.
Skinner: Poisoning?
Mulder: You won’t find that on the Navy pathologist’s report.
Skinner: What are you saying, Agent Mulder?
Mulder: That the autopsy is incomplete. That the military covered up the toxicological findings.
Skinner: And why would they do that?
Mulder: Because they know where Scully is.
Agent: Why are you so paranoid, Mulder?
Mulder: I don’t know. Maybe it’s because I find it hard to trust anybody.

Mulder: You know, don’t you? You know what’s happened to her.
X (Steven Williams): This reaches beyond any of us, Mr. Mulder. Even my predecessor.

Skinner: Agent Krycek didn’t show up for work this morning. His home number’s been disconnected.
Mulder: That’s it? He’s gone? He just disappears into the woodwork?
Skinner: So it would appear.
Mulder: Who are these people that just murder with impunity and we can’t do anything about it?
Skinner: Let it go, Agent Mulder.
Mulder: Like hell!
Skinner: There’s nothing you can do.
Mulder: What can you do about it?
Skinner: There’s only one thing that I can do, Agent Mulder. As of right now I’m reopening the X-Files. That’s what they fear the most.

Margaret Scully: I had that dream again last night, about Dana being taken away. I can’t tell you how it scares me.
Mulder: It’s probably scarier when you stop having the dream. Don’t you think?

Mulder about Scully’s cross necklace: That’s something I never considered about her. If she was such a skeptic, why did she wear that?
Margaret: I gave it to her on her fifteenth birthday.
Mulder: Don’t you want to keep it?
Margaret: When you find her, you give it to her.
