Quotes

Scully: I once had a talk with Mulder about starlight. How it's billions of years old. Stars that are now long dead whose light is still travelling through time. It won't die, that light. Maybe that's the only thing that never does. He said that's where souls reside. I hope he's right.
Skinner: If you're trying to prepare yourself I want you to stop. Nothing says that we're going to stumble over him in some field. Nothing says he won't be fine.

An incredible episode- Gillian at her best
18 May 2019 | by brian-wizSee all my reviews

One of the best X Files episodes. Gillian deserved an Emmy for this season. This episode in particular.

Monica is also a great addition to the show.
