When Mulder obtains what could be the original and uncut MJ documents containing information about the government's knowledge of extraterrestrial life; his shadowy enemies step up their harassment of him, eventually leading to his apparent murder.
Whatever he got into has
made him a very wanted man.
If I'm correct, I got the original Defense
Department's UFO intelligence files.
- Where did you get this?
- Your friendly neighbourhood anarchist.
It was the only code
the Japanese couldn't break.
- I don't know anything about that.
- Agent Mulder, listen...
- You wanted to see me, sir?
- Yes, Agent Scully. Please have a seat.
- Would you lie to protect him?
- Am I being accused of lying?
...capable of technical espionage.
- The files should have been destroyed.
I've protected him this long, haven't I?
I've thought about that, Scully.
This word... it means goods, merchandise.
- Mulder, listen to me.
- You've gotta believe me, Scully.
Right now you need to rest, OK?
I'm being called to Skinner's office today.
I need to give them some answers.
Did you kill my father?
I'm sorry about your father, Mulder.
I haven't been able to tell you.
- There was a murder at my building.
- Well, it wasn't an exercise in subtlety.
Albert was a Navajo code talker

What about you?
It's not clear, but it has

You are prepared to accept the truth,

Expose anything and

Come on, Mulder. They're wasting our time.
- The spirits of massacred Indians.
- Those are only legends.
These old hill people

But you're welcome to ask her yourself.
- He never discussed his work with you?
- He never told me and I never asked.
- He cited multiple violations.
- I know. I had to answer to each one of them.
- What do you mean?
- He filed a compensation suit.
- Excuse me. I got a shift change.
- Howdy, Sheriff.
Come by tomorrow and let me

They presented similar symptoms, yeah.
We eat their meat, their eggs,

It's possible they may have both suffered

It's characterised by the formation

They would be.
Runoff from the plant.
Chicken litter, mostly. Some blood and parts.
All of them share one strange detail, though.

Anthropologists used similar evidence...
No, you're a part of us now.

We're here to put pressure on the zoo.
We're keeping track of what goes on.

We can capture this cat

I've heard about people that have lived after

I can't explain it to you, but, um...

Many aspects continue to defy explanation...
Was the thickening of the blood

I gotta get up there.
- What is it, Scully?
- May we speak off the record, sir?
Agent Scully, you and I both have a greater

I have a story to tell, Agent Mulder.
Believe me, you wanna hear it.
We believe the original Gregor came here

...and to obtain the science that created it.
Scully, if our friend from the CIA is right,
this is a big national security conspiracy.
Dammit, Mulder, that is not my job.
Maybe I'm paranoid, but it was in the exact

The doctor has it in here
