Episode Quotes
Scully: You're saying Mr. Pankow had his brain very neatly removed from his skull, right here in this kitchen.
Mulder: It had to happen somewhere.
Scully: But next to the shake machine, Mulder? I think that we should be checking out employee lockers and not entertaining the idea that ad hoc surgery was performed here.
Mulder: I wouldn't exactly call it "surgery." What if this man's brain was eaten? I-I-It's not sociologically unheard of. There are certain tribes in New Guinea that consider human brains a delicacy.
Scully: Yeah, but Mulder, we're in Orange County.
Mulder: Yeah, what's your point?

Mulder: Oh. Hello. Look at this. That look like blood to you?
Scully: Yes, it looks like it.
Mulder: What is that? Next to it. Is that, uh--oh my--uh, is that that brain matter...there?
Scully: No, I'd say that's ground beef.
Mulder: Ground beef?
Scully: (Sharply) Yeah.
