Assistant Director Walter Skinner:I know Mulder. He'd get to a phone and call first. He wouldn't do anything crazy.
[Scully stares at him]
Assistant Director Walter Skinner:Well, not *overly* crazy.
Fox Mulder:What's up, Doc?
Fox Mulder:This is not an exact science. If it were me, I'd be on the guy 24/7. I'd be in bed with him kissing his holy ass.
ASAC Dakota Whitney:Father Joe is a convicted pedophile.
Fox Mulder:[surprised]... Maybe I'd stay out of bed with him.
Dana Scully:Ugh, scratchy beard!
Dana Scully:Can you hear me?
Fox Mulder:[drugged]Sorry about your car.
Dana Scully:It's been fun.
Fox Mulder:Scully? Nobody's gonna make you sit next to him.
Dana Scully:Thanks, but I've already been taken for a ride. Besides, he doesn't want me there.
Fox Mulder:I want you here.
Dana Scully:This isn't my life anymore, Mulder. I'm done chasing monsters in the dark.
Dana Scully:This stubbornness of yours, it's why I fell in love with you.
Fox Mulder:It's like you said. That's why we can't be together...
Fox Mulder:I can feel you thinking.
Dana Scully:Sorry. I can't sleep.
Fox Mulder:Actually, I have a little something for that.
Dana Scully:Just a little something?
Fox Mulder:Thank you.
Fox Mulder:Don't give up.
[he pauses as he follows Scully to her car]
Fox Mulder:Why would he say such a thing to you?
Dana Scully:I think that was clearly meant for you, Mulder.
Fox Mulder:He didn't say it to me; he said it to you.
Fox Mulder:If Father Joe were the devil, why would he say the opposite of what the devil might say?
[she doesn't reply, though clearly attempting to rationalize]
Fox Mulder:Maybe that's the answer, in a larger answer.
Dana Scully:What do you mean?
Fox Mulder:Don't give up.
Dana Scully:Please don't make this any harder than it already is.
Fox Mulder:If you have any doubts,
Fox Mulder:[wrapping his arms around Scully, allowing her to rest her head on his chest]any doubts at all, call off that surgery and then we'll get out of here... just me and you.
Dana Scully:As far away from the darkness as we can get?
Fox Mulder:[he loosens his embrace enough to look into her eyes]I'm not sure it works that way. I think maybe the darkness finds you and me.
Dana Scully:I know it does.
Fox Mulder:Let it try.
[they embrace again, this time pulling together in a passionately long kiss]
Dana Scully:What are you doing?
Fox Mulder:Trying to ignore you.
Father Joe:Do you know why we live here, in this box? Because we hate each other and ourselves.
Margaret Fearon:If you were a mother, Dr. Scully, you would understand.
Fox Mulder:Are you asking me to give up?
Dana Scully:No. No, I can't ask you to do that... But I can tell you I won't be coming home tonight.
Dana Scully:Listen to me! I need your help!
Agent Mosley Drummy:I'm sorry. I - I can't help you.
Dana Scully:Then let me talk to somebody there with some balls who can.
Agent Mosley Drummy:I don't believe this.
Fox Mulder:You know, that's been your problem from the very beginning.
Assisting Nurse:Are you ready to begin?... Uh, Dr. Scully?
Dana Scully:What is it that you were praying for in there, sir?
Father Joe:For the salvation of my immortal soul.
Dana Scully:And you think God hears your prayers?
Father Joe:You think he hears yours?
Dana Scully:I didn't bugger 37 altar boys.
Fox Mulder:Hmmm, that's a pleasant way of putting it.
Dana Scully:I have another word I could use, if you'd like.
Fox Mulder:I'm sure you do.
Fox Mulder:I'm as happy as a clam.
Father Joe:And where do they come from, then, these unnatural appetites?
Dana Scully:Not from God!
Father Joe:Oh, then from me? I castrated myself when I was twenty-six.
