Mulder and Scully track a series of murders that lead to a home for the mentally ill and a clue that makes no sense: each victim had a purported warning from the dead.
Angelo Pintero: "Look, I'm not making this up."
Mulder: "No one is suggesting that you are, Mr Pintero."
Angelo Pintero: "I saw the look on her face."
Mulder: "Can I ask you a favour? Can I get a soda, a cola, something like that?"
Angelo Pintero: "Sure. Yeah." [Angelo Pintero leaves to get Mulder's drink]
Mulder: "What is that look Scully?"
Scully: "I would have thought that after four years you'd know exactly what that look was."
Mulder: "What? You don't believe in ghosts?"
[Scully tells Karen Kosseff about her cancer]
Karen Kosseff: "You've kept working?"
Scully: "Yes. Its been important to me."
Karen Kosseff: "Why?"
Scully: "Why... Agent Mulder has been concerned. He's been supportive through this time."
Karen Kosseff: "Do you feel that you owe it to him to continue working?"
Scully: "No. I guess I never realised how much I rely on him before this. His passion. He's been a great source of strength that I've drawn on."
Karen Kosseff: "What happened last night Dana?"
Scully: "I saw something. I don't know what to trust. If I saw it because of the stress, because the image had been suggested to me or if it was a suggestion of my own fears."
Karen Kosseff: "Your fear of failing him?"
Karen Kosseff: "What did you see?"
Scully: "I saw a woman who had recently been murdered, but I saw her. It appeared as if she was trying to tell me something."
Karen Kosseff: "Do you know what?"
Karen Kosseff: "Are you sure?" [Scully shakes her head]
[Mulder tells Scully of his theory that only the dying can see the spirits of the dead]
Mulder: "What is a death omen if not a vision of our own mortality? And who among us would most likely be able to see the dead?"
Scully: "I saw something Mulder."
Scully: "The fourth victim. I saw her in the bathroom before you came to tell me."
Mulder: "Why didn't you tell me?"
Scully: "Because I didn't want to believe it. Because I don't want to believe it."
Mulder: "Is that why you came down here? To prove that it wasn't true?"
Scully: "No. I came down here because you asked me to."
Mulder: "Why can't you be honest with me?"
Scully: "What do you want me to say? That you're right? That I believe it even if I don't? I mean is that what you want?"
Mulder: "Is that what you think I want to hear?"
Mulder: "You can believe what you want to believe, Scully, but you can't hide the truth from me. Because, if you do, then you're working against me... and yourself. I know what you're afraid of... I'm afraid of the same thing."
