Episode Quotes
Mulder: (to Krycek) You're an invertebrate scum sucker whose moral dipstick is about two inches short of bone dry.

Scully: What I'm worried about is you, Mulder. How far you'll go... and how far I can follow you.

Scully: You want this man brought to justice?
Krycek: You can't bring these men to justice. They're protected. The laws of this country protect them in the name of national security. They know no law.
Mulder: Then why don't you put a bullet in his head like you did that man out there?
Krycek: These men, they fear one thing; exposure. You expose *him,* you expose his crimes, you destroy the destroyer's ability to destroy.
Mulder: The only thing that will destroy this man is the truth.
Krycek: The truth, the truth! There's no truth. These men, they make it up as they go along. They're the engineers of the future. They're the real revolutionaries.
