Episode Quotes
Scully: (Over phone) Holman?
Mulder: Yeah. He wants advice. Dating advice.
Scully: Dating advice? From whom?
Mulder: Yours truly.....Hello? Hey, Scully. Scully, you there?
Scully: I heard you. Mulder, when was the last time you went on a date?
Mulder: I will talk to you later (Hangs up)].
Scully: The blind leading the blind.

Holman: I've been envious of men like you my whole life. Based on your physical bearing, I'd assumed you were...more experienced. I mean, you spend every day with Agent Scully--a beautiful, enchanting woman, yet...You mean you two never, uh...? I...confess I find that shocking. I...I've seen how you two gaze at one another.
Mulder: This is about you, Holman. I'm here to help you. 'm perfectly happy with my friendship with Agent Scully.
Holman: So according to your theory, I walk in there, tell her I love her and the drought will end?
Mulder: (straightens Holman's tie) Just tell her how you feel...And, Holman, I do not...gaze at Scully.

Sheila: You love him, don't you?
Scully: (softly) What?
Sheila: (Laughs) You're jealous because Agent Mulder and I have a special connection and you're trying to divert me to Holman.
Scully: What?
