A mentally handicapped janitor seems to be the only suspect in the murders of two members of a propulsion research team. Yet the evidence of advanced theoretical work seems to eliminate the possibility, until Mulder and Scully uncover his relationship to a scientist whose brain has been cryogenically preserved.
Mulder: "How was the wedding?"
Scully: "You mean the part where the groom passed out or the dog bit the drummer?"
Mulder: "Did you catch the bouquet?
Scully: "Okay, but how is this an X-File... Mulder you don't think this is anything to why UFO technology?"
Mulder: "There's something unexplainable here Scully, but certainly not unidentifiable."
Dr Keats: "Roland didn't do that." [Equation written on the whiteboard]
Scully: "How do you know?"
Dr Keats: "Let's just say Roland isn't exactly a rocket scientist."
Mulder: "I don't think they will be performing this experiment on Beakman's world."
Mulder: "Hey Roland, you got more shirts than I've got." [Holding up shirt that would match one of his own ties] "I think this would look styling today. What do you think?"
Roland: "People die. They go away. And they're not supposed to come back."
Mulder: "Well if he had intentions to kill Nollette, Keats and Surnow, why not set it up to appear the least likely suspect?"
Scully: "Yeah. By the look of this —" [holding up picture of car crash] "— he's hamburger."
Dr Nollette: "...Anyway, to get back at him, one afternoon we decided to take his car apart and put it back together again in his office, and left it running."
Mulder: "An egghead classic."
Dr Barrington: "This is Arthur Grable." [Indicating Cryogenic tank.] "Because of the massive internal damage to his body caused by the car accident, we could only preserve the head."
Scully: "Wouldn't your client find it somewhat inconvenient to be thawed out in the future, only to discover he had no functional mobility?"
Dr Barrington: "We believe that by the time science figures a way to revive our clients —"
Mulder: "— You'll also know how to clone new bodies for them."
Mulder: "You got a brother, don't you, Scully?"
Scully: "Yeah, I've got an older one and a younger one."
Mulder: "Well have you ever thought about calling one of them all day long and then all of a sudden the phone rings and it's one of them calling you?"
Scully: "Does this pitch somehow end with a way for me to lower my long distance charges?"
Mulder: "I believe in psychic connections. And evidence suggests that it's stronger between family mambers, strongest of all between twin siblings that share the same womb."
Scully: "Okay, maybe, but in this case one sibling has closer ties to a frozen fudgesicle than he does to his own brother."
Mulder: "Arthur Grable is not dead. He's in a state of consciousness that no human has ever returned from. And what if that state allows one to develop psychic ability to a potential that the conscious mind is too preoccupied to explore, or believe in. He use that ability to control his brother to kill those scientists."
Scully: "But why? He's been working with these collegues for years."
Mulder: "Well that's a question that only Dr Nollette can answer."
Scully: "Okay, let's go. I have to call my brother."
Mulder: "We've got to find Nollette."
Scully: "Let's talk to campus security."
Mulder: "We go this way?" [Mulder heads in the wrong direction.]
Scully: "No. We go left."
