Dreams make it all the more funny to crush your pathetic little spirit, sweep the pieces into my drink and relish the taste.
'What I find fantastic is that there are any answers beyond the realms of science…' The audience goes on such a long journey with Scully over nine seasons that it is weird to look back to the very beginning where she was so fresh faced and naïve about the horrors she is about to face. You can imagine her life skipping along happily (or as happily as somebody who is as rigid as Scully is) from one success to another until the point where she meets Mulder and it all goes frighteningly downhill...Mulder makes a gag about Scully being the head of the Bureau in 2026 – it obviously never occurred to him that he is going to drag her down into the mud."

such a pretty melody, never heard before!
No more lullabies!
The Virgin Child smiles from Hell!"

So innocent and pure
Your eyes were open and sure
Anyone could look right in...
