  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Mulder: You really think the general's got something to hide?
      Scully: No. I think he's got everything to hide.

    • General Callahan: I want you to know I've had the captain contact the Justice Department and let them know about the FBI's gross misconduct here.
      Mulder: I guess this isn't a good time to thank you for seeing us.

    • Lt. Col. Stans: I never see him clearly. But he looks like a soldier. Always standing at attention.
      Mulder: A GI?
      Lt. Col. Stans: Or one of Saddam's boys. Come back to hold me accountable.

    • (Mulder sits listening to the undecipherable tape)
      Scully: Find anything?
      Mulder: No, but I'm really beginning to like the tune.

    • Rappo: Now if you're through questioning me ,I'd like to get a little shut-eye.
      Mulder: (leans close and whispers) No sleepwalking.
      Rappo: That's good. I hadn't heard that one yet. Hardy-har-har.

    • Mulder: Leonard Trimble?
      Rappo: No, it's Fred Astaire!

    • Rappo: Hey, what do you do, man, when I rap on the tank?
      Roach: Get some, get some. Fire at will.
      Rappo: Good. You're all right.

    • Mulder: You're a soldier. You knew what you were getting into when you enlisted. Now you want to blame everybody else. Why do you want to blame your COs?
      Rappo: I blame him for what happened to all of us. You don't know what it was like... You sat home and watched the war on cable TV like it was a damn video game. You have no idea about the guys that died. About the blood... the sand. What it feels like when a hit comes. Thing is, you just don't care, do you? You got your crude oil. Just change that station, right? Killer got his prime time. LC got his fancy little medals. Now, take a good look at me, WHAT DID I GET?! Nobody knows how I feel. They took my life away.

    • Mulder: What destroyed those parts of him that make us human beings, those better angels of our nature?

      In 1861, Abraham Lincoln ended his inaugural address by saying, "The mystic chords of memory, stretching from every battlefield and patriot grave to every living heart and hearthstone all over this broad land, will yet swell the chorus of the Union, when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature."
