Agents Mulder and Scully's search for a man who seems to possess strange powers leads to the discovery of a dangerous secret from Mulder's past. The secret could bring Mulder and Scully to the brink of exposing the truth about alien existence.
Part two of two
Jeremiah Smith: "You have to understand something. I must perish. Whatever the consequences to that end they are incalculable to the preservation of the larger plan."
Mulder: "The larger plan? You mean colonisation."
Jeremiah Smith: "Hegemony, Mr Mulder. A new origin of the species."
Mulder: "I don't understand."
Jeremiah Smith: "I can show you."
Scully: [answering mobile phone] "Scully."
Mulder: "Scully, it's me. Where are you?"
Scully: "I'm right where you left me, Mulder." [Eight hours previously] "I'm sitting here in my car."
Scully: "Because you wouldn't answer your phone and because I didn't know what else to do." [Scully has the bounty hunter sitting in the backseat of the car with a spike to her neck]
Mulder: "Samantha, it's me. It's me, Fox, your brother. Do you remember me?" [to Jeremiah Smith] "What's wrong with her?"
Jeremiah Smith: "She has no language."
Mulder: "What do you mean?"
Jeremiah Smith: "She's a drone, Mr Mulder, a worker."
Mulder: "How did they get here?"
Jeremiah Smith: "They're stationed here. They're part of an agrarian work force."
Mulder: "Who takes care of them?"
Jeremiah Smith: "They take care of themselves. Parenting is unnecessary, a needless division of energy."
[Mulder looks around the small cluster of houses at duplicates of his young sister and a young Kurt Crawford]
Mulder: "They're clones."
Jeremiah Smith: "Serial ova-types. You seen enough, Mr Mulder? We can't stay around here much longer."
Mr X: "If you want to involve yourself, Agent Scully, you might do well to give this information to your partner."
Scully: "Not until you give me some information first. These are data entries taken from Social Security records —"
Mr X: "You're going in the wrong direction, Agent Scully."
Scully: "— all beginning with the letters SEP. You know what these are. Confirm or deny."
Mr X: "Smallpox Eradication Program."
Mr X: "Don't unlock doors you're not prepared to go through, Agent Scully."
Scully: "What's that supposed to mean?"
Mr X: "Leave it alone."
Skinner: "I'm not a scientist, Agent Scully, and I don't know that many people in this room..."
Scully: "What I'm saying is that I think this protein is a tag. Some kind of genetic marker that was applied to me when I was inoculated against Smallpox as a child."
Senior FBI Agent: "Why you?"
Scully: "Not just me, all of us. Quite possibly anybody who's been inoculated over the last 50 years."
Second FBI Agent: "Agent Scully, frankly this sound like something we might have expected from Agent Mulder."
Scully: "I had my doubts and I'm still not certain, but I performed the same procedure on Agent Pendrell. The location of the protein from his biopsy should be identical to mine, but it's slightly different. Which might correspond to the alpha-numeric entries collected at the Social Security administration."
Skinner: "So what you're saying, Agent Scully, is we're being catalogued, tagged and inventoried. By who?"
Scully: "I don't know, but it would have to be a government agency."
Senior FBI Agent: "And to what purpose?"
Scully: "I don't know that either and I think the only man who might be able to give us that information is Jeremiah Smith."
Mulder: [on phone] "I'm going to need some protection, Scully."
Scully: "Oh believe me, Mulder, you're going to have it."
Mulder: "What do you mean?"
Scully: "There's a lot of people who want to talk to Jeremiah Smith."
Bounty Hunter: [to Mulder] "Everything dies."
Mulder: "I've seen too many things not to believe."
Scully: "I've seen things too, but there are answers to be found now. We have hope that there's a place to start. That's what I believe."
Mulder: "You put such faith in your science, Scully, but... the things I've seen science provides no place to start."
Scully: "Nothing happens in contradiction to nature; only in contradiction to what we know of it. So that's a place to start. That's where the hope is."
[A dying Mr X writes SRSG in his own blood on the floor outside Mulder's apartment]
[Mulder has been asking the various Special Representatives of the Secretary General at the UN about the farmland in Canada where he saw his sister]
Marita Covarrubias: "Can I ask why this is so important to you?"
Mulder: "I've suffered... I've suffered some very personal losses recently... and I was hoping... that..."
Marita Covarrubias: "Not everything dies, Mr Mulder."
[The Smoking Man explains to the Bounty Hunter why he should heal Mrs Mulder]
Smoking Man: "If his mother were to die, he would..."
Bounty Hunter: "Be what?"
Smoking Man: "You see, the most ferocious enemy is the one who has nothing left to lose and you know how important Agent Mulder is to the equation."
