Special Agent Fox Mulder
Special Agent Dana Scully
Dr. Del Hakkie
Agent Alex Krycek
Revealing Mistakes: Scully could never have gotten from Washington to Richmond so quickly. She would have had to drive to the airport, take a plane, rent a car and drive to the travel agency in the time it took the agents to complete the drilling, insert a camera, print out a frame and take it to Kazdin.
Factual Errors: The barcode of the metal fragment is only ten microns across. It is doubtful that supermarket barcode readers could detect this.
Plot Holes: The FBI and Virgina State Police must be pretty slack if they let Duane and the Doc get all the way from Marion to Richmond before he stopped at the travel agent. It is a 5+ hour drive between those cities.
Duane Barry: They're, uh... they're talking to Duane Barry. But they don't speak. He can hear what they're saying. They can... read his mind.
Mulder: That's right. Abductees call it mindscan. It's a kind of telepathy.
Duane Barry: I'm telling 'em I don't want to go... but they never listen. They know what I'm saying. But they just... go right on about their business.
(He stands up slowly and points to Hakkie.)
Duane Barry: Tell him what their business is. Tell him.
Mulder: They take you aboard the ship to perform the tests.
Duane Barry: They... drilled my teeth. They drill holes in my damn teeth!
Duane Barry: The government knows about it, you know. They're even in on it sometimes. Right there in the room when they come.
Duane Barry: They're not taking me again. You got it? They can take somebody else!
Scully: Mulder, it's me. I just had something incredibly strange happen. This piece of metal that they took out of Duane Barry, it has some kind of a code on it. I ran it through a scanner and some kind of a serial number came up. What the hell is this thing, Mulder? It's almost as if... it's almost as if somebody was using it to catalogue him.
Ballistics Expert: Could be a shell casing or a small artillery fragment. The edges are dull, but it could have been white-hot when it entered the body.
Scully: That would make sense.
Ballistics Expert: But look at this.
Ballistics Expert: These small markings. See them here?
Scully: Mm-hmm. Looks like some kind of a stamp.
Ballistics Expert: Like it's been tooled or etched. Pretty fine work, too. This square we're looking at is only ten microns across. Strange.
Scully: Sometimes when you want to believe so badly, you end up... looking too hard.
Lucy Kazdin: I actually called you down here for another reason, Agent Mulder. Uh... in the x-rays, the surgeon found several pieces of metal. In his gums, in his sinus cavity, and one in the abdomen. I had them checked, I felt you'd want to know... and there were tiny drill holes in his left and right rear molars. A dentist who examined them said they could not have been done with any of the current equipment in use... not without chipping or damaging the tooth. Anyway... I thought you ought to know.
Scully: Where's Mulder?
Krycek: He traded himself for one of the hostages.
Krycek: He's in with Duane Barry.
Scully: You've got to get him out of there.
Krycek: Well, they're working on it.
Scully: No, you've got to get him out of there now or he's going to be killed!
Krycek: How can you be sure?
Scully: Because Duane Barry is not what Mulder thinks he is.
Krycek: Is there anything I can do?
Lucy Kazdin: Yeah, what's your name again?
Lucy Kazdin: Krycek, have you got your notepad? Grande, two percent cappuccino with vanilla.
Mulder: Well, if you just wanted somebody to come down and read the script, you didn't have to bring me out.
Rich: This method has proven extremely successful in winning the hostage-taker's trust.
Mulder: No, no, that man is afraid. And the only way you're going to win his trust is by trying to understand what he's afraid of.
Mulder: Nobody's going to try anything, Duane. Who is this guy? He's F.B.I., isn't he?
Lucy Kazdin: Former F.B.I.
Mulder: And you didn't think to mention that?
Lucy Kazdin: He's been out of the bureau since 1982. Institutionalized on and off for over a decade. It's beside the point.
Mulder: The point being that the bureau wants to minimize its embarrassment, isn't that it? That we can police our own.
Lucy Kazdin: They would like it done as neatly and cleanly as possible.
Mulder: Well, you're off to a hell of a start.
Lucy Kazdin: You really believe in this stuff, Agent Mulder?
Mulder: Is that a problem?
Lucy Kazdin: We're here to save lives. You'll begin negotiations immediately. Every three hours, we'll reevaluate your progress and let our tactical commander advise and update on the use of force.
Mulder: If this man is an abductee, I need to know more about him, his personal history. Each abduction case is different.
Lucy Kazdin: That material's not been made available to us.
Mulder: And nobody's thought to call the hospital for records?
Lucy Kazdin: Look, Agent Mulder. The guy's a psycho. Your object is to keep him on the phone. The longer you do, the more chance he's not going to kill anybody. We stop to do a Freudian analysis, next thing we know, we've got four dead hostages. So whatever crap you got to make up about space men or UFOs, just keep him on the phone.
Krycek: There's a situation going down. They want you out there right away.
Mulder: What kind of situation?
Krycek: Hostage negotiation.
Mulder: And they want me?
Mulder: What for?
Krycek: The guy escaped a mental institution. He's got four people at gunpoint in an office building. Claims he's being controlled by aliens.
In the supermarket scene, Scully buys pickles and ice cream. This is a reference to actress Gillian Anderson's pregnancy.
CCH Pounder received an Outstanding Guest Actress for Drama Emmy Award nomination for this episode.
A sign at the mental hospital reads "Please Line Up Quietly", which was specially requested by Chris Carter as a tribute to One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest.
The date of the infamous "speedo scene" is August 7th, which is also David Duchovny's birthday.
This is the first episode to be solely written and directed by Chris Carter.
Scully's abduction and her disappearance between "Duane Barry" and "One Breath" were written as a way for Gillian Anderson to have some time off from the show to give birth to her baby. Her daughter, Piper Maru Anderson, was born on September 25, 1994.
