Mulder: It appears that cockroaches are mortally attacking people.
Scully: I’m not gonna ask you if you just said what I think you just said because I know it’s what you just said.
*Mulder and Scully on the phone again*
Scully: You know, lots of people are afraid of insects, Mulder. It’s just a natural, instinctive -
Mulder: - No, no, I’m not afraid of them. I hate them. One day way back when I was a kid, I was climbing this tree when I saw this leaf walking towards me. It took me forever to realize that it wasn’t a leaf.
Scully: A praying mantis?
Mulder: Yeah, I had a praying mantis epiphany and as a result, I screamed. No, not a girly scream. Like the scream of someone before an unknown monster that had no right existing on the same planet I inhabited. Did you ever notice how a praying mantis’s head resembles an alien’s head? You know, the mysteries of the natural world were revealed to me that day, but instead of being astounded, I was repulsed.
Scully: Mulder, are you sure it wasn’t a girly scream?
*after seeing Mulder look sadly at Dr. Berenbaum (“Bambi”) walking off with Dr. Eckerle*
I guess all these are tough to answer so I”ll just quit mentioning that. After careful consideration I’ve chosen You Are There. It’s just.. the whole episode from start to finish is so damn hilarious. ALSO, it’s the only episode where there is direct spoken verbal talk about Xena and Gabrielle being ‘lovers’. Another brilliant idea for an episode, and I never get tired of watching it.. Michael Hurst is just a natural comedian.
Also loving when Michael says ‘archangel’ into the microphone.. with the feedback.. I wish there was a video clip.
