  • Quotes

    • Scully: Arthur and Roland Grable, born at Puget Presbyterian to Mr. and Mrs. Louis Grable on July 15, 1952. Arthur was four minutes older than Roland.
      Mulder: Identical twins.
      Scully: Which means that they're the result of a single egg fertilized by a single sperm.
      Mulder: I've read studies which suggest that in some cases the identical twin arises very early in the embryonic stage when a mutation in one cell is rejected by the other cells as foreign.
      Scully: So that maybe Roland's condition is the result of a damaged chromosome rejected by one of Arthur's cells?
      Mulder: In a way, that would explain Arthur's genius and Roland's strange mathematical gift.
