SCULLY: I can't get through to Mulder.
ESTHER: It's the AI. It's had time to analyze my voice. It knows I was using your phone.
SCULLY: It can interfere with my phone?
ESTHER: Give it enough information, it'll sue you for palimony.
SCULLY: Well, if Esther wanted to leave her body, she got her wish. At least that part of it.
MULDER: I wonder.
SCULLY: Mulder, she's dead.
MULDER: What if she managed to establish an uplink, Scully? A satellite transmission?
SCULLY: Mulder, are you telling me that Esther may have ... that she may not be dead?
MULDER: Artificial life. It could exist. It could be here among us, evolving.
SCULLY: Electrons chasing each other through a circuit --- that isn't life, Mulder.
MULDER: Yeah, but what are we but impulses? Electrical and chemical through a bag of meat and bones. You're the scientist. You tell me.
