  • Quotes

    • Scully: It's all over now.
      Mulder: No, no, it's just beginning. Hoffman and O'Fallon were these complicated, flawed, beautiful people and now they'll just be remembered as jokes because of this movie. The character based on O'Fallon is listed in the credits as "Cigarette-Smoking Pontiff". How silly is that?
      Scully: Pretty silly.
      Mulder: Yeah, what about us? How are we going to be remembered now 'cause of this movie?
      Scully: Well, hopefully, the movie will tank.
      Mulder: What about all the dead people who are forever silent and can't tell their stories any more? They're all going to have to rely on Hollywood to show the future how we lived and it'll all become... oversimplified and trivialised and Cigarette-Smoking Pontificised and become as plastic and meaningless as this stupid plastic Lazarus Bowl.
      Scully: I think the dead are beyond caring what people think about them. Hopefully we can adopt the same attitude. You do know that there aren't real dead people out there, right? That this is a movie set?
      Mulder: The dead are everywhere, Scully.
