  • Quotes

    • Scully: Mulder, tell me you've got more than SAT scores to show that this Tony Reed didn't commit this crime.
      Mulder: Maybe. Take a look at the body. The former Deputy Ronald Foster. As you can see, the report doesn't quite do it justice.
      Scully: Oh, my God, it looks like he was hit with a sledgehammer.
      Mulder: Police flashlight. One blow.
      Scully: The damage to the maxillofacial bones and the cranium is consistent with a blunt-force trauma, but... I'd say that, uh, Tony eats his Wheaties.
      Mulder: Check out the back of his head.
      Scully: Ugh. His eyeglasses.
      Mulder: Penetrated to the back of his skull. Babe Ruth couldn't hit this hard, let alone a high school sophomore.
      Scully: Well, maybe if he was under the influence of PCP or some kind of stimulant.
      Mulder: No, his tox screen came back negative.
      Scully: Well, even so, I mean, stress and fear may have triggered an adrenaline response which is known to enable feats of near-superhuman strength.
