  • Quotes

    • Colton: I've got this case that's, out there. Baltimore PD cops, they want our help on a serial killer profile. Three murders began six weeks ago, victims vary in age, race, gender, no known connections to each other.
      Scully: I take it there's a pattern.
      Colton: Point of entry. Actually, the lack of one.
      Scully: What do you mean? Suicides?
      Colton: Each victim was found with their liver, ripped out. No cutting tools used.
      Scully: Bare hands. This looks like an X-file.
      Colton: Let's not get carried away. I'm gonna solve these murders but, what I would like from you is, to go over the case histories. Maybe, come down to the crime scene.
      Scully: Do you want me to ask Mulder?
      Colton: Ok, if he wants to come and do you a favor, great. But make sure he knows this is my case. Dana, if I can break a case like this one, I'll be getting my bump up the ladder. And you, maybe you won't have to be Mrs. Spooky anymore.
