"The Truth Is Out There"
written by Alex Gansa & Howard Gordon
SCULLY: It just doesn't seem, substantial enough to warrant an investigation.
MULDER: Ok Scully, so we disagree, it's not the first time and it won't be the last.
SCULLY: Well, at least if we had a legitimate source, we could -
MULDER: This is the essence of science, you ask an impertinent question and you're on your way to a pertinent answer.
SCULLY: I just think it's a good idea not to antagonise local law enforcement.
MULDER: Who me? I'm Mr. Congeniality.
SCULLY: You never know, we might need his help one of these days.
MULDER: I'll send him a bundt cake.
MULDER: Hey, that's a nice tattoo, what is that?
BARTENDER: What's it look like?
MULDER: Flying saucer. You don't really believe in that stuff, do ya?
BARTENDER: I take it you don't.
MULDER: No, I think it's all just a bunch of crazy people howling at the moon.
LEZA ATSUMI: We scanned all seventy-seven pages through the mainframe in Washington.
SCULLY: And none of the information is actionable?
LEZA ATSUMI: Other than the satellite transmission, nothing can be construed, in any way, as a national security risk. As far as I know, the boy's being released this afternoon.
SCULLY: So it's just a random set of ones and zeroes.
LEZA ATSUMI: On the contrary, there was nothing random about it.
SCULLY: I don't understand.
LEZA ATSUMI: All information can be rendered digitally, in a series of ones and zeroes. When we downloaded the data, we found an amazing range of... Well see for yourself. Da Vinci's "Universal Man". A DNA double helix. Oh, there's lots more.
SCULLY: Mulder stop. Stop running after your sister. This won't bring her back.
MULDER: You know when I was a kid, I had this ritual. I closed my eyes before I walked into my room, 'cause I thought that one day when I opened them my sister would be there. Just lying in bed, like nothing ever happened. You know I'm still walking into that room, everyday of my life.
MULDER: Any ideas what caused the coma?
SCULLY: Eerrr, there's no sign of head trauma, no narcotic traces or electralight abnormalities, but her white blood cell count was skyhigh.
MULDER: By any chance was there attendant reduction in the lymphocyte population or a release of gluco-cordacoids?
SCULLY: Errmmm, actually both, how did you know that?
MULDER: They're symptoms of prolonged weightlessness. Shuttle astronauts have reported similar imbalances.
MULDER: She should be encouraged to tell her story, not to keep it inside, it's important that you let her.
DARLENE MORRIS: Important to who? I have my daughter back, I don't want any more trouble. Besides she can hardly remember anything.
MULDER: But she will remember one day, one way or another, even if it's only in dreams. And when she does, she's gonna wanna talk about it, she's gonna need to talk about it.
DARLENE MORRIS: Like I did? Listen to me, all of my life I have been ridiculed, for speaking my mind.
MULDER: But it was the truth, Darlene.
DARLENE MORRIS: The truth has caused me nothing but heartache, I don't want the same thing for her.
DR. HEITZ WERBER: Are you scared?
MULDER: I know I should be but I'm not.
DR. HEITZ WERBER: Do you know why?
MULDER: Because of the voice.
DR. HEITZ WERBER: The voice?
MULDER: The voice in my head.
DR. HEITZ WERBER: What's it telling you?
MULDER: Not to be afraid. It's telling me no harm will come to her, and that one day she'll return.
DR. HEITZ WERBER: Do you believe the voice?
MULDER: I want to believe.
