The X-Files: The Beginning

An accident at Rousch Technologies brings an E.B.E. to term inside a human host. Killing one person, the creature is now on the loose in Phoenix. Meanwhile, Mulder and Scully try to support their work on the X-Files, but their arguments fall on deaf ears.

Episode Quotes
Scully: I don't doubt what you saw, Mulder. I don't doubt you. I'm willing to believe - but not in a lie.

Cigarette Smoking Man: You can kill a man but you can't kill what he stands for . . . Not unless you first break his spirit. That's a beautiful thing to see.
