Special Agent Fox Mulder
Special Agent Dana Scully
How could Mulder and Scully have reached the abductor´s house the same time as the police, if they stopped at the photo store, and supposedly went in?
When the tow truck driver looks at the wheel the hubcap is in one place 11:38 but when Carl grabs the tyre iron the cap is nearly under the car 11:54.
Scully stops Mulder from performing CPR on Amy when, as a medical doctor, she should have known that it is possible to revive cold-water drowning victims long after the heart stops.
Mulder: Are you feeling better?
Lucy: Better than what?
Mulder: Better than Amy Jacobs.
Lucy: Wouldn't know.
Mulder: If anybody knows, I say you do.
Mulder: Lucy is a victim, Scully, just like Amy Jacobs. If she's got any connection to this case, that's the extent of it.
Mulder: (referring to the words "Nobody's going to spoil us") Those were the exact words spoken by the kidnapper to the little girl when he took her last night. So you can see that under the circumstances it might seem strange . . .
Lucy: So what's your point? All of us kidnap victims gotta stick together?
Mulder: No. We just want to find the little girl any way we can and if you know anything . . .
Lucy: Look, what I've been through in my life I wouldn't want to wish on anybody. Doesn't mean I can make it any better for me or anyone else.
Scully: I guess she's not too big on confined spaces.
Scully: That's spooky.
Mulder: That's my name, isn't it?
Scully: Mulder, you can't...
Mulder: That's how I account for what Lucy's going through. That's how I account for the identical words that corresponded to Amy... and the spontaneous wounds and blood as well.
Scully: Then why did she run? If she's innocent, what was she running from?
Mulder: Because she's afraid.
Scully: You don't see what you're doing, do you Mulder? You are so close to this that you just don't see it.
Mulder: (Mulder is angry) What don't I see?
Scully: The extreme rationalization that is going on around here. Your personal identification with the victim - or in this case, the suspect. You're becoming some kind of an empath yourself, Mulder. You are so sympathetic to Lucy as a victim - like your sister - that you can't see her as a person who's capable of committing this crime!
Mulder: You don't think I've thought of that? I have. And not everything I do and say and think or feel goes back to my sister. You, of all people, should realize th-that sometimes motivations for behavior can be more complex and mysterious than tracing them back to one single childhood experience.
Lucy: I don't know where she is. I don't care. I'm not interested.
Mulder: Well, that's too bad, Lucy, because right now I think you're her best hope.
Lucy: If I'm her best hope then that little girl's in a hell of a lot more trouble than you think.
Tracey Ellis appears again as Audrey Pauley in the season 9 episode "Audrey Pauley".
Fox standards were a bit concerned about this episode as the abduction of the girl had some parallels to the Polly Klaas case. The ordeal of the abduction had to be played down.
Severe weather played havoc with production. Due to heavy rains the climatic sequence had to be shot a week later than planned at another location than originally envisioned.
An Oubliette is a medieval dungeon having a trap door in the ceiling as its only means of entry or exit. It is derived from the French word 'oublier' meaning "to forget".
