Episode Quotes
Mulder: Who cut the cheese?

Mulder: Mmm! Par-tay!
Scully: However, I must remind you this goes against the Bureau's policy of male and female agents consorting in the same hotel room while on assignment.
Mulder: Try any of that "Tailhook" crap on me, Scully, I'll kick your ass.

Mulder: Hey, who did you identify with when you were a kid - Wilma or Betty?
Scully: I identified with Betty's bustline.
Mulder: Yes! I did, too.

Mulder: Became known as the "Moth Men." I've got an X-File dating back to 1952 on it.
Scully: What would that be filed next to? "The Cockroach that Ate Cincinnati"?
Mulder: No, "The Cockroach that Ate Cincinnati" is in the "C's." Moth Men's over in the "M's."
