    • Doggett: This amuse you? I amuse you?
      Skinner: No. It just made sense to me. How you found your way out here. Who led you to Gibson Praise.
      Doggett: You think I was spying on you?
      Skinner: No, but I think our new Deputy Director was. You're being made a pawn in a rigged game.
      Doggett: All right, you've painted me the picture, now put it in a frame.
      Skinner: All right. You've got a good rep, Agent Doggett. You don't compromise, you don't quit. You're a damned good FBI agent-- best of the best. Lot of guys put you in the Director's chair one day. Which is why you've been set up to fail. There's no amount of search and rescue or rolling cordons or eyes in the sky that are going to turn up Mulder. It's just the wrong approach.
      Doggett: It's not a question of approach. It's the only approach I got.
      Skinner: The only way you're going to find Mulder is to give into the truth. To listen to Scully. But even then... say you did find him, even then you lose. You put anything about aliens or UFOs or alien bounty hunters in your report... Kersh will ruin you. I'm betting that was his plan.
