X-Files: Aliens, conspiracy and quotes

David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson as Mulder and ScullyThe X-Files was a one-of-a-kind, groundbreaking show. It took the typical FBI detective show and spun it, but good. Add some aliens and government conspiracy and you've done one better than a weekly FBI caper.

And the extraterrestrial and supernatural make for some good quotes, starting with the pilot, when Scully refers to Mulder by his nickname from the academy: "Spooky Mulder."

Or how about Mulder's understatement of the millennium: " ... in most of my work, the laws of physics rarely seems to apply."

A much more dedicated fan than myself has put together a list of quotes from seven seasons of X-Files, episode by episode.

Another favorite of mine, poking fun at Mulder's, shall we say, eccentric tendencies, from season four, episode 18:

MULDER: Do you know where she is?
SCULLY: In a mental institution.
MULDER: I'd, I'd go with you, but I'm, I'm afraid they'd lock me up.
SCULLY: Me too.

If you would like to focus on some of the funnier quotes from the X-Files, Planet Claire has some gems that really show off Mulder's dry sense of humor:

SCULLY: Oh my God, Mulder. It smells like ... I think it's bile.
MULDER: Is there any way I can get it off my fingers quickly without betraying my cool exterior?

Go ahead, betray your cool exterior and gush over your favorite X-Files moments with us!
