Top Ten Lines Cut From Two Fathers/One Son
10.) Mulder: "His name is C.G.B. Spender. Hey wait, why didn't we just ask Cassandra what her ex-husband's name was?" Scully: "For that matter if it's this easy why didn't we just search for the Smoking Man's face?"
9.) Krycek: "What am I supposed to be presenting here again?" CSM: "You're here to provide continuity and bring people who just started watching up to speed. No recite Well-Manicured Man's speech to Mulder in the limo from the movie while we re-cover issues we did in Patient X/The Red and the Black."
8.) [Spender rips the rebels mask off] Rebel: "We had a plan to kill the doctors so Cassandra Spender would be released and expose the conspiracy, then I'd infiltrate the Syndicate and get them to side with the resistance. And I wouldn't gotten away with if it hadn't been for you meddling FBI agent." (I'm sorry for using this bad joke again everyone, please forgive me)
7.) Scully: "Mulder, if she's really an alien-human hybrid then shooting her won't do any good, and we'll be killed by her blood." Mulder: "Yeah, but the door's going to get broken down in a second anyway. This is just to make a really cool cliffhanger."
6.) Mulder: "Before anyone passes judgement, may I remind you this is cold water. *Damn, why do we only end up in situations like this when it's cold?*"
5.) Scully: "Mulder, what would it take for you to believe that Fowley's not on you side? Her to pull a gun on you while you're off investigating something illegally, turn you in and alter her report to make you look bad...oh wait, she already did that."
4.) Mulder: "My sister wasn't abducted from any hangar. She was taken from our home right in front of me. And while I'm at it, why was Cassandra returned while Samantha stayed missing? And why were there lots of Samantha clones but only one Cassandra? And what was so wrong with the other hybrids anyway? And who was the woman you showed me a year ago? And are you her father? And why did you take Samantha's file before burning the X-Files? CSM: ~Puts fingers in his ears~ LALALALALA, I can't hear you..."
3.) [Mulder and Fowley are about to kiss] NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Mulder: "What was that?" Fowley: That's just all the Shippers and teenage girls who believe they have a chance with you. Now shut up and kiss me."
2.) The Rebels: "Sorry, but if we don't do this we won't be able to keep dragging this plotline on for the next season and a half."
1.) Spender: "No, please don't kill me! I mean, I've been the show's least popular character for as long as I've been on, and now my human side is finally emerging. You can't kill me now! For the sake of character development..."
And the runner up:
Marita: "Oh Alex, it's so great to see you again. Come right here and give me a kiss." Krycek: ~Takes a good look at Marita~ *cough*cough* "You know, I've got a touch of the flu, I better not."
