Duana Barry (2x05)
"The Truth Is Out There"
KRYCEK: There's a situation going down. They want you out there right away.
MULDER: What kind of situation?
KRYCEK: Hostage negotiation.
MULDER: And they want me?
MULDER: What for?
KRYCEK: The guy escaped a mental institution. He's got four people at gunpoint in an office building. Claims he's being controlled by aliens.
LUCY KAZDIN: You really believe in this stuff, Agent Mulder?
MULDER: Is that a problem?
LUCY KAZDIN: We're here to save lives. You'll begin negotiations immediately. Every three hours, we'll reevaluate your progress and let our tactical commander advise and update on the use of force.
MULDER: If this man is an abductee, I need to know more about him, his personal history. Each abduction case is different.
LUCY KAZDIN: That material's not been made available to us.
MULDER: And nobody's thought to call the hospital for records?
LUCY KAZDIN: Look, Agent Mulder. The guy's a psycho. Your object is to keep him on the phone. The longer you do, the more chance he's not going to kill anybody. We stop to do a Freudian analysis, next thing we know, we've got four dead hostages. So whatever crap you got to make up about space men or UFOs, just keep him on the phone.
MULDER: Nobody's going to try anything, Duane. Who is this guy? He's F.B.I., isn't he?
LUCY KAZDIN: Former F.B.I.
MULDER: And you didn't think to mention that?
LUCY KAZDIN: He's been out of the bureau since 1982. Institutionalized on and off for over a decade. It's beside the point.
MULDER: The point being that the bureau wants to minimize its embarrassment, isn't that it? That we can police our own.
LUCY KAZDIN: They would like it done as neatly and cleanly as possible.
MULDER: Well, you're off to a hell of a start.
MULDER: Well, if you just wanted somebody to come down and read the script, you didn't have to bring me out.
RICH: This method has proven extremely successful in winning the hostage-taker's trust.
MULDER: No, no, that man is afraid. And the only way you're going to win his trust is by trying to understand what he's afraid of.
KRYCEK: Is there anything I can do?
LUCY KAZDIN: Yeah, what's your name again?
LUCY KAZDIN: Krycek, have you got your notepad? Grande, two percent cappuccino with vanilla.
SCULLY: Where's Mulder?
KRYCEK: He traded himself for one of the hostages.
KRYCEK: He's in with Duane Barry.
SCULLY: You've got to get him out of there.
KRYCEK: Well, they're working on it.
SCULLY: No, you've got to get him out of there now or he's going to be killed!
KRYCEK: How can you be sure?
SCULLY: Because Duane Barry is not what Mulder thinks he is.
SCULLY: Sometimes when you want to believe so badly, you end up... looking too hard.
LUCY KAZDIN: I actually called you down here for another reason, Agent Mulder. Uh... in the x-rays, the surgeon found several pieces of metal. In his gums, in his sinus cavity, and one in the abdomen. I had them checked, I felt you'd want to know... and there were tiny drill holes in his left and right rear molars. A dentist who examined them said they could not have been done with any of the current equipment in use... not without chipping or damaging the tooth. Anyway... I thought you ought to know.
BALLISTICS EXPERT: Could be a shell casing or a small artillery fragment. The edges are dull, but it could have been white-hot when it entered the body.
SCULLY: That would make sense.
BALLISTICS EXPERT: But look at this.
BALLISTICS EXPERT: These small markings. See them here?
SCULLY: Mm-hmm. Looks like some kind of a stamp.
BALLISTICS EXPERT: Like it's been tooled or etched. Pretty fine work, too. This square we're looking at is only ten microns across. Strange.
SCULLY: Mulder, it's me. I just had something incredibly strange happen. This piece of metal that they took out of Duane Barry, it has some kind of a code on it. I ran it through a scanner and some kind of a serial number came up. What the hell is this thing, Mulder? It's almost as if... it's almost as if somebody was using it to catalogue him.
