Kersh: I obviously haven't been able to rely on those whose job it is to keep me apprised and informed. I have to rely on phone calls, like the call I received from Martin Ortega. Why doesn't somebody make me privy to who the hell gave the order to shut down that rig.
Skinner: I did.
Kersh: Well I'm giving the order that this quarantine is lifted.
Scully: We could do that Sir, but all radio contact has been cut off.
Kersh: As soon as it's re-established I want that rig up and running, and the entire crew choppered off the Galpex-Orpheus and debriefed.
Scully: Sir, I think that would be a mistake ...
Kersh: I think it would be a mistake not to, Agent Scully. And you're running out of mistakes, both you, and the Assistant Director. If I didn't know better, I'd say this was a Mulder stunt.
