The dinner party saves the day!

“You can’t kill me, I’m having a dinner party!”
-Warwick Wilson, The Perfect Host

Dead Quote Walking

Scully is just so darn quotable.

“Mulder, when you find me dead, my desiccated corpse propped up staring lifelessly through the telescope at drunken frat boys peeing and vomiting into the gutter just know that my last thoughts were of you and how I’d like to kill you.”
-Agent Dana Scully, The X-Files, episode #716 “Chimera”

Quote of the Week

“Everything? Ok I’ll talk!(Francis removes his hand) In third grade I cheated on my history exam. In fourth grade I stole my Uncle Max’s toupee and I glued it on my face when I played Moses in my Hebrew School play. In fifth grade I knocked my sister Edie down the stairs and I blamed it on the dog!”
-Chunk, The Goonies

Attack of the Quote

Here’s this week’s quote and, as promised, it’s X-Files related.

“Begin autopsy of white male, age 60, who is arguably having a worse time in Texas than I am… although not by much.”
-Agent Dana Scully, The X-Files, episode #512 “Bad Blood”

New “Quote of the Week” Category

I got to thinking about the “Quote of the Week” feature in the sidebar and realized that we have no way for you guys to look up quotes we’ve used. So here’s what we’ll do: Every week when we change the quote, we’ll make a post for the new quote and put it in the category “Quote of the Week”. That way if you saw a quote here you really liked but didn’t write down, you’ve got a way to find it.

In this post I’ll include all three quotes we’ve already used. As of next week the quotes will each have their own post.


“He’s not saying much of anything anymore. Somebody performed brain surgery on him with a .357 magnum.”
Detective Eames, Law & Order: Criminal Intent


“What do you mean you want me to do another autopsy? And why do we have to do it right now? I’ve just spent hours on my feet doing an autopsy. All for you. I do it all for you, Mulder. You know I haven’t eaten since six o’clock this morning and all that was was half a cream cheese bagel. And it wasn’t even real cream cheese, it was light cream cheese. And now you want me to run off and do another autopsy?”
Agent Dana Scully, The X-Files


“I tried to think of the most harmless thing. Something I loved from my childhood. Something that could never ever possibly destroy us. Mr. Stay Puft!”
Ray Stantz, Ghostbusters
