Krycek: "You tell them to kiss my American ass."
Mulder: "What I've seen, I've seen because I wanted to believe. I... If you look too hard, you can go mad, but if you continue to look, you become liberated. And you become awake, as if from a dream, realizing that--that the lies are there simply to protect what they're advertising: A
government which knows its greatest strength is not in defense, but in attack. It's strongly held by believers in ufo phenomena that there is military complicity or involvement in abductions, but what if there is no complicity? What if there is simply the military, seeking to develop an arsenal against which there is no defense: Biological warfare, which justifies -- in their eyes -- making an ass out of the nation with stories of little green men -- a conspiracy wrapped in a plot inside a government agenda."
Mulder: "Do I look like I'm having fun, Scully?"
