Scully: Mulder, if any of this is true...
Mulder: If it is, or if it isn't, I want you to forget about it, Scully.
Scully: Forget about it?
Mulder: You're not going back out there. I'm not going to let you go back out there.
Scully: What are you talking about?
Mulder: It has to end some time. That time is now.
Mulder: Scully, you have to understand that they're taking abductees. You're an abductee. I'm not going to risk... losing you.
Skinner: Agent Mulder.
Mulder: What's our punishment this time? Thumbscrews or 40 lashes? Come on in, Walter. Sit a spell. This could be the last time you take a trip down to these offices.
Skinner: You went to Oregon.
Mulder: Guilty as charged. And if they're coming down on you for that, then I'm sorry. I truly am.
Skinner: Fortunately, they think that I make a contribution to the Bureau.
Mulder: Oh well yeah, stick to a budget they say your making a contribution, but push the limits of your profession, and they say you're out of control.
Skinner: You could bring home a flying saucer and have an alien shake hands with the President... what it comes down to Agent Mulder is... they don't like you.
Mulder: Well, we didn't bring home a flying saucer... or an alien.
Skinner: Yeah... so I've been told.
