PREVIOUSLY ON “FOX & RAT”... Marita Covarrubias
is believed to be dead, having been “killed” by Alex Krycek. Mysteriously,
she is alive and in the future sending transmissions about what is
happening to Captain William Scully, Sr. – who is alive and well,
living and working in Antarctica, having faked his death to avoid
being killed by people against him in The Syndicate. The selfish and
cold-hearted Cigarette-Smoking Man has been traveling with Monica
Reyes and are heading towards the East coast to meet up with the rest
of the gang in Long Island, New York. While on this journey Cancer
Man has betrayed Monica by handing her over to the colonizing aliens,
but at the last minute he had a change of heart in his betrayal too
her, and it was too late. The colonizing aliens have her held with
other psychics at the Alien Headquarters (formerly the Pentagon in
Washington, D.C.). Fox Mulder found his sister Samantha (and they
both love to quote “Plan 9 From Outer Space”). They have been united
with their other friends: Dana Scully, John Doggett, Walter Skinner,
Knowle Rohrer, Shannon McMahon, and John Montgomery. Mysteriously
a plane crashed in the Atlantic, the same plane that was brought down
years ago in a case Mulder and Scully investigated involving a young
girl who carried a chip in the base of her neck – the same chip that
Scully had in her neck that she had removed at the beginning of colonization
to prevent the aliens from finding her. With Scully’s health on the
line and the future at risk we now begin the second “Fox & Rat” movie...
“Save The Future: Contact”...
And now to explain a little something that we
kept a secret from you in season 9... what really happened to Mulder,
Krycek and Marita after they were taken by the alien colonists on
Christmas Day 2006.
INT. DARK PARKING GARAGE – NIGHT
DECEMBER 26, 2006
Dim lights flicker in the abandoned parking
garage. Condensation rolls down the walls, dripping from the ceiling
onto the wet concrete. The air is warm and thick. Marita Covarrubias
stands, dry blood on the side of her face, having come from her ear.
Alex Krycek stands before her, gun drawn, aiming it at her. Blood
drips down the side of his face as well. He’s on edge, paranoid.
This isn’t what it seems to be. This isn’t
an escape, this is them turning you
against us. (beat) They’re making you do this.
Yeah?! And how would you know that unless
you were working with them! You are them!
Marita shakes her head and takes a cautious
step towards him. She can see it in his eyes, he has so much fear,
paranoia, even confusion. She believes he can break this cycle of
mind warfare and he can come to his senses.
Alex, this isn’t you. You’re stronger
than them. (beat) I believe in you.
Krycek squeezes the trigger, but no sound is
heard. Yet, Marita falls to the ground, unable to control herself.
Krycek comes over to her, looks down at her, blinks his eyes and looks
terrified at what he thinks he just did.
He quickly kneels down next to her.
Tears well in his eyes.
Marita looks up at him, confused. Why is he
crying? Why can’t she move?
Sasha, I hear you. I’m here.
(he doesn’t hear her)
He cries, holding in his arms what he believes
to be Marita’s lifeless body.
Her holds her, brings her face up to his.
Sasha... I’m here.
A tear drips from his face onto hers. A loud
humming noise echoes through out the empty parking garage. Krycek
looks up from Marita, remembering the last time he heard this noise.
The humming becomes louder and louder, piercing his ears until he
finally loses control of himself and falls over, laying unconscious
on the ground with Marita in his arms.
Marita is unaffected by the loud noise.
Sasha? Answer me.
She’s confused and catches a glimpse of an alien
entering the parking garage. It stands tall, but she feels no fear
From behind the alien, a blinding bright white
light shines, whiting out Marita’s vision.
Hollow wind. Cold. Whistling through bare branches.
Still. Quiet. Sound is muffled by several feet
EXT. FOREST – DAY
Bare tree branches gently sway in the cold breeze.
The world appears to be spinning slowly as snow gently falls to the
frozen terrain. Marita Covarrubias lies on the ground, her body stripped
of clothing. A snowflake gently falls on her eye and she twitches.
Her eyes flutter open and she stares at the gray sky above, feeling
She slowly sits up, crossing her arms in front
of her, hoping to insulate as much body heat as she can. She looks
around, trying to figure out what has happened. Where is she? How
did she get here? The last she remembers is seeing Alex Krycek shoot
a gun at her, but she didn’t die. She was taken and he was made to
believe she died.
She quickly looks up upon hearing a loud blast
from the sky. She is able to catch a glimpse of a small, light colored
alien spacecraft leaving the area.
Then it dawns on her. She was abducted by aliens.
But not the invading aliens, it couldn’t have been them. Perhaps by
another alien race? She’ll never know.
Where is she? Earth? Not a minute ago she was
on Earth, a planet now dying from heat. Now it is cold and the question
she asks herself is when is she.
Snow has swallowed sound. No birds. No animals.
She is alone and with nowhere to go.
Suddenly, loud tornado sirens wail in the distance,
interrupting the still silence of the forest.
Marita turns in all directions, panicked. What
the hell is going on? Has she been taken to the past, before the
colonist invaded? In her panic, she spots a man in the distance. She’s
about to call out to him, when she starts to hear the gradual humming
she previously heard while she was held at the Alien Headquarters.
The humming intensifies and she falls to the ground, covering her
ears in pain. The humming is worse now than before. Blood trickles
from her ears, dropping to the pale snow below. She screams in agony
and drops to the ground, catching the attention of the man in the
The man, unmistakably John Doggett, runs over
to help her. He has black soot on his face to prevent snow blindness.
He is unaffected by the intense humming because
of earplugs. He takes off his jacket and wraps it around her frozen
body. He picks her up and quickly carries her out of the area.
TIME CUT TO:
INT. LOG CABIN - DAY
Fox Mulder sits at a table, face to face with
Alex Krycek. Between them is a wooden chessboard. Both men look deep
in thought. Then Mulder, takes the Knight piece and moves it about
the board as if he were playing checkers. Krycek’s eyes bug, knowing
he’s just been cheated!
Hey! That’s not a legal move!
The guy who invented Chess. That
was more like a Checkers move!
Yeah well, the guy who invented
Chess isn’t here, is he? So I say
the move was legal.
(seeing where he’s coming from)
Anyway... that move right there
just put you in checkmate.
Krycek looks at the board, then sighs.
Damn you’re good at this game.
He smiles and looks out the window, seeing John
Doggett coming towards them with a limp body in his arms.
John’s found a survivor.
Krycek looks up in shock.
He rises from the table.
Mulder goes over to the door and opens it for
Go get Alex.
I am him.
The other one!
Krycek hops out of his seat and heads out the
door, just as John enters.
He goes over to Mulder’s bed and lies her down.
Marita? (beat) Ohmygod! I can’t
believe Krycek didn’t notice you
were bringing her in! (beat) How
can this be her? Krycek said he-
Mulder comes over to his bed.
I know, I know, but it’s her. (beat)
She was exposed to the noise, Mulder.
Doggett checks her over, lifting her eyelids.
Where the hell is Alex?
I sent him to get Alex.
I meant, Alexandra.
Oh, well Krycek is getting her.
The door opens and Krycek walks in, followed
by a younger brunette woman (35), Alexandra McCord.
Doggett looks over at them.
She was exposed to the noise.
Where did you find her?
Doggett steps away from Marita, allowing Alexandra
to check her over.
In the clearing. About ten minutes away.
Any idea who she is?
I knew her. Her name is Marita Covarrubias.
She was killed about five years ago.
Krycek’s eyes BUG! He hadn’t realized this was
Marita Covarrubias. His Marita Lynn... the light of his life, his
This concerns her. She looks over at Mulder
and Krycek – especially Krycek.
Krycek, don’t become a problem.
Krycek doesn’t move. If his Marita Lynn is in
trouble, it is best to let the doctor check her over.
We can’t be sure she’s who you
think she is. This woman is supposed
to be dead. (beat) We don’t need another incident.
That was years ago, Alex. They
haven’t tried anything like that-
(standing her ground)
-Doesn’t mean they won’t go back
to a system that worked for them before.
She looks at him sternly, knowing he wants to
get close to Marita. She looks at all three men.
(after a beat)
Before we do anything with her, we
must do the proper testing. We can’t
afford to risk not being careful. We’re
the only one’s alive - the one’s they are after.
We’re not the only one’s. Super Buddies...
Alex looks at him, knowing he speaks of Monica
Reyes and her unknown whereabouts. After all these years they still
haven’t been able to find her, which leaves her a question mark in
Mulder’s mind... and the way he has been about the unknown whereabouts
of a Super Buddy reminds them all of his unending quest to find his
sister, Samantha. And he found her, after many years. So telling Mulder
that Monica is “gone”, is just unacceptable to him.
-My parents! My parents, Alex! Even my parents!
Mulder, I’m not going to have this
argument again. You know it’s far too
dangerous to go searching for her.
And we live in the fear that they are
using her to find us. All of that would go
away if we just found her. Besides, Super
Buddies don’t let other Super Buddies down.
She looks at him sternly for a moment.
We’ve all agreed on this, and I’m sorry
that it has to be that way, but we have no choice.
Mulder breaks eye contact with her and pouts.
He doesn’t want to keep talking about this subject either because
it is useless and it goes round and round in circles. He looks down
Well, then do the blood test on Marita.
He walks away from the group to the other side
of the room to sit down at the table and pout. He watches as John
gives Alex the blood test kit.
John, what else can you tell me
about when you found this woman.
Before the siren went off, I heard
a sonic boom. At least I think it was.
When I looked up I didn’t see anything,
shortly after that is when the sensors
were triggered. I noticed her as I was
securing my earplugs. By the time I got
to her, the noise was starting to take
affect on her.
Well, she’s human all right. (beat)
No trace of any virus or other toxins.
Alex goes over to John and Krycek.
How is this possible?
I haven’t the faintest idea.
Probably their mind warfare techniques.
They must’ve made Krycek believe he
had killed her.
She’s coming to.
Everyone turns their attention to Marita.
Step back, we don’t know how she’ll react.
Krycek takes a step away from Marita.
How is it she’s survived this long
out there in the cold?
Maybe there are other survivalists
we’ve been unable to contact.
That’s impossible. We know that everyone
else is gone. We lost radio communication
years ago during the final attacks. Not even
survivors overseas survived those attacks.
I like to think that if we could survive
then maybe there are others still out there.
She had no clothes. (beat) Were there
tracks indicating where she came from?
Doggett shakes his head.
I don’t think so. She was just lying
there in the snow.
Any dusting on her?
Are you saying it was as if she was
just dropped there?
Sonic boom anyone?
They are silenced. The only time such sonic
booms are heard are when the aliens are checking up on the progress
of their hybrid race and do fly bys. The alien spacecrafts are the
only machinery now that create that kind of sound and energy.
Mulder leaves the table and joins their conversation.
Maybe she was abducted when Krycek thought
he killed her and they returned her.
Then can we trust her? Or have they advanced
their hybridization so she would seem genetically,
one-hundred percent, human but in actuality she’s a hybrid?
We’re missing the point that she was abducted.
(beat) Why, if the colonists already had her, would
they need to abduct her away from their headquarters?
You’re saying she was abducted by another alien race?
Then why drop her off here?
You got me. Maybe she knows. Mulder
said once that alien abductees would
be told messages to send to the world, or
some kind of hocus-pocus like that.
It’s not hocus-pocus.
Then we should wait for her to wake up.
Hopefully she’ll remember what happened
to her and can answer our questions.
We’ll have to wait for her paranoia to
settle down before we can speak rationally to her.
Unless the aliens that took her made her
immune to the noise.
They all look at him doubtful and he shrugs
What do you want with me?
They look down at her. She looks at them with
Just stay the hell away from me? Who are you?
It’s John Doggett, don’t you remember me?
It’s another one of your tricks. You’ve
done this to me before. To me, and Alex and Mulder.
You just can’t show them to me and expect me to
believe you are human. (beat) Let me go, you have
no idea how important I am. I’m the daughter
of one of the most important Syndicate-
Alex cocks an eyebrow.
Is she delusional?
No, her father was a part of this
secret group of men who knew about
the alien’s colonization plans. She
and I were part of that group.
Alex turns her attention back to Marita.
Marita, you can trust us. You’re safe.
Stay the hell away from me!
Her brain needs more rest. This
is too much for her right now.
John, help me hold her down.
Alex and John hesitantly goes over to her, somewhat
afraid of any possible rash behavior. John holds her down by the shoulders
and she lets out one hell of a scream.
Krycek steps forward, worried.
(worried for his love)
Is she all right?
Alex tilts her head and administers eardrops
to both ears, then injects her with a sedative.
That should allow her mind to rest and
restore her balance for when she wakes up.
We should get her something warm
to wear and something warm
to eat when she wakes up.
Alex nods her head and looks down at Marita.
Ok, so who wants to give up their long johns?
(cracking a “joke”)
Well, John’s name is in there.
Come on guys, I’m serious.
Krycek has already started to strip down to
his long johns.
I will. I’ve got another pair anyway.
NO! I’ll give her everything
I have, she’s my one true love.
You have two pairs?
She made me another pair... the luxury of
being involved with the woman in charge.
Doggett smirks at Mulder. He winks at Alex.
Alex rolls her eyes and grabs his arm and drags him away.
What about us?!
Krycek could care less if he froze tonight,
so long as his Marita Lynn is safe and warm.
Doggett and Alex walk to their corner of the
cabin. Alex kneels down on a mattress as John starts digging through
his rucksack to find his other pair of long johns.
I don’t think it’s very nice to
rub in the fact that you and I are involved.
I mean look at Mulder, the man misses Monica-
(setting her straight)
-He never loved Monica in a romantic way.
He loved her in a Super Buddy way. There’s
a HUGE difference. Super Buddy love never dies.
Whatever... Then there’s Krycek, and well,
he’s probably going to be better now that he
has the woman he loves...
It’s not like the opportunity for
intimacy presents itself often. We don’t
get much more than they do with their own right hands.
I still feel guilty about having
someone when they, well, Mulder doesn’t.
We could always try to save Monica. Maybe
if she were here, he could be with her...
It’s way too dangerous, in our numbers,
to go into enemy territory. We’d be killed.
Hell, we don’t know for certain that she’s still alive.
For as long as we don’t know for certain
he’ll never tire of trying to convince us
to go in there, with our Super Buddy faces
on, to try to save her.
Well, he’s not in charge. (beat) I am.
He gave up his chance to lead us when he
almost got himself killed, trying to
convince the aliens to join Super Buddies.
Which forced us to leave our old stomping grounds.
He didn’t do that intentionally.
Yes he did!
Doggett gives in, it’s almost impossible to
defend Mulder on some of the dumb things he has done to “try and save
He almost cost us our lives, just
like Knowle Rohrer did when he lead
the aliens from New York before he
was killed in that big battle that
killed everyone else.
Alex looks Doggett in the eyes, with a strength
in her soul that Doggett once saw in Scully, before her cancer began
to consume her life, before she was shot and killed in the final battle
on May 24, 2007.
He lowers his eyes, unable to match her gaze,
remembering back to the guilt that he felt after Dana died in his
arms. To this day he hates himself for not protecting her more during
that battle. She could have lived a little longer if he had prevented
her from being shot and killed. Back then Mulder, like Knowle would
have done too, tried to convince him that it was better for Dana to
die the way she did, it allowed her to die before more pain and suffering
could consume her body because of her cancer.
There’s that look again.
And we’ve discussed it before
and I don’t want to discuss it again.
Talking about what happened to Dana still hurts,
he’s been successful in keeping his emotions bottled up inside himself
all these years, very rarely talking about her death to anyone.
INT. ALIEN HEADQUARTERS – CIGARETTE-SMOKING
Cancer Man stands in front of a window, peering
out at the frozen world, enjoying the lasting heat of his indoor chambers.
From his pocket he retrieves a pack of Morley’s. Yes, even in a world
without luxuries this son of a bitch still manages to feed his disgusting
habit. He strikes a match from his matchbook and lights his cigarette,
enjoying one of life’s luxuries he’s allowed to experience.
His chamber is very human. Filled with luxuries
from a world now gone forever. Wooden bookshelves filled with books,
fireplace, desk, bed. Everything a man of power could ever want.
There is a quiet knock on his door.
The door quietly opens as Monica Reyes enters.
She’s dressed casually in a black sweater and jeans. Behind her, the
halls of the Alien Headquarters are very dark and dreary.
Monica smiles at the Cancer Man. He turns to
Monica, how are you?
He takes a drag off his cancer stick.
I’m feeling very well, Charles.
She looks at him, her eyes appearing very human,
yet with a sly hint of deception.
That is wonderful to hear.
They told me that they are finally
finished with me. That I am complete.
Cancer Man lifts his cigarette to his mouth
again, he’s on guard not fully trusting her.
They told me once your transition was complete
that that would be it. There would be no stopping
the rise of any human forces.
Yes. They are right.
Cancer Man smiles.
(smug, yet remaining cautious)
They tell me they must all be destroyed.
There must be no chance for the humans
to rise again.
Cancer Man eyes her.
And our deal-
Your deal is not forgotten, Charles.
She smiles sweetly at him.
In fact, our former leader made sure
to remind me of it before sacrificing
his full power over to me.
Cancer Man takes another long drag off his cigarette.
You have full power now?
Of course I do.
She eyes him with deceit and sits on his couch.
After all, I am the one.
Yes, indeed you are.
That’s partly why I came here.
She looks up at him.
To speak with you directly about your
position here with us. (beat) Please,
have a seat next to me.
She signals to the seat right next to her on
the couch. He looks at her with caution, approaches, and sits down
next to her, betraying his own instinct.
Our former leader spoke of an agreement
you made with us concerning Dana Scully,
a chip you promised, and the trade you
made for your loss of both those items.
That trade being... well, me.
I held up my end of the deal to the
best of my ability.
Yes, we understand that. (beat) However,
you fail to realize that I have the ability
to read your mind, know your every thought,
even know your plans to try to take over.
Blood drains from the Cancer Man.
Earlier, I spoke of how we must make
certain the human forces never rise
again. (beat; sweetly) And well... that includes you.
She looks at him, making eye contact with him.
The cigarette drops from his hand to the floor. Monica’s eyes appear
black and lifeless, yet filled with alien life.
You can’t destroy me.
I certainly can, Charles. Who’s to
punish me? I am the one, their former
leader knew this to be true. It is the
sole reason he sacrificed his abilities
so I would survive and help this planet
thrive to a more... civilized world.
Monica, I... I saw to it that this
trade happened to save you.
Monica smiles at him.
Do you really think you
are talking to Monica?
Monica is silent. Her words dawn on him, and
then, without so much as a warning, she looks at him and his eyes
start to bleed. She smiles as he starts to choke. She stands, watching
him plead for air and life with his eyes. And while their eyes meet,
her black, blank stare pierces into him, killing him. He falls to
the ground and she smiles as she looks down at his lifeless body.
The door opens and another alien enters. They
speak in their language to each other.
He is dead.
Good, and now the others...
Alien Monica smiles knowing that after she gets
the others, the planet will be theirs.
INT. CABIN – NIGHT
Mulder, Krycek, Doggett and Alex McCord sit
at the small wooden table eating supper, a small lantern lights their
meal. Krycek glances over at Marita. She is still sleeping on his
(talking softly to Alex)
How much did you give her?
The usual dosage.
Are you sure? She’s still out. She
should’ve woken up hours ago.
I know what I’m doing.
But she’s really petite.
Alex, I know how much to give my patients.
Do you ever get confused when you
talk to me and call me Alex?
She looks at him, wondering what dumb conversation
this is leading to.
I mean, do you ever think you are
talking to yourself?
No. (beat; afraid to ask) Do you?
Mulder and Doggett exchange a look.
Alex, I’m sorry for Sasha. He
knows not what he says.
Alex McCord, nods, understanding.
I know what I’m saying.
I doubt that.
Yeah, well, I doubly doubt that
you know half the stuff you talk
about, so NAH!
Mulder looks at him blankly... did Krycek just
say “so NAH!”?
Sasha, I am so not having one
of our “yes-no fights”, ok?
Doggett and McCord share an irritated look...
here they go again.
I JUST DID! We had a “yes-no fight”!
No we didn’t!
Yes we did!
Yeah we did, baby!
No we didn’t!
I da man!
Doggett stands up.
Mulder and Krycek look up at him, his outburst
Geez John, get your knickers out of a knot.
They quietly, as if nothing happened, go back
to eating their meal.
Doggett calmly sits back down.
(changing the subject)
I wasn’t able to get any hunting done
today since I found Marita so I think
first thing tomorrow morning I’ll go
out and see what I can get.
John stands up, having finished his meal and
is now going to prepare to go to bed. Alexandra follows. She goes
to their corner and starts changing into her sleepwear.
(off screen, sad)
You know buddy, do you think that
since Marita is alive and with us
now that maybe, just maybe, Kim
may be out there somewhere wondering
where I am and if I’m alive?
I don’t know, but um, can
you go someplace else and leave
me and Marita alone right now?
But... but she’s asleep.
Krycek gets up from the table.
I know. We still need our quality time.
Alex McCord looks at John and rolls her eyes.
It’s amazing how pathetic they can be.
I should go tell them to get over it.
That would be a big mistake.
Five years with them and still
you don’t know them?
He looks at her doubtfully.
Telling Krycek to get over the
“light of his life” would turn him
into a drama queen maniac. (beat)
And telling Mulder to get over Kim,
or to even stop looking for Monica
his Super Buddy – would turn him
into Niagra Falls.
Alex looks back at the boys, as Krycek cuddles
Good point. But I still think we need
to be a little more alert than “oh goodie,
oh boy”, as they tend to get. (beat) We
can’t have them moping or getting out-of-control
giddy about things.
Doggett nods in agreement and Alex turns down
the bed and looks at John.
We’ve all lost someone John. I know what
it’s like to lose someone you love. I lost
James when the aliens started colonizing.
Alex lets out a soft sigh and glances over at
Mulder as he slowly and pathetically finishes his meal.
If I never found Dana, I probably
would be exactly like him. (beat)
Believe me, the unanswered questions
are the worst part of losing someone.
Doggett’s mind briefly reflects back on all
the years he never knew who killed his son, Luke.
But just think of what Mulder
is missing out on. He won’t let himself
Who’s he supposed to love? Alex?
Doggett and Alexandra look over at Krycek who’s
still cuddling with Marita. Doggett reflects on all the questionable
moments Fox and Alex have shared together... kissing in Europe, Krycek
kissing Mulder claiming to be gay to make Diana Fowley leave Mulder,
their office flirtations, the hugging, the “things they don’t talk
about”... He shakes his head... well, maybe if Marita weren’t here
it would be possible for Mulder and Krycek to fall in love... but
first Krycek would have to learn to love more than just himself...
You so didn’t know them in the past...
You know what I mean. If there was
someone else here, he could have her.
(off screen, crying)
And I would! I really miss Kim!
And I miss Sammy too! (beat) Oh God!
Why did Sammy have to die?!
He starts to bawl – loudly.
Way to go Alex! Now you’ve
got him crying like a big baby!
(on to something else)
(confused/not crying now)
Krycek sits up from cuddling with Marita looks
at John and Alex. He starts removing his blankets from his body and
puts his boots on. He is annoyed with something.
It’s Friday night.
Remember our meeting the other
day? How we all agreed that it’s
time John and Alex try to reproduce.
Do you ever get creeped out saying that?
I do actually. It has to do with
my homophobic tendencies.
Is that really going to happen
with Marita here?
Duh dummy... we’ll have to carry
her outside into the cold with us.
Oh yeah. Duh. I can be such
a silly dum-dum sometimes.
The boys start to get bundled up to go sit outside
so John and Alex and do the dirty deed.
John and Alex watch on.
Boys... John and I will tell you
bozos when we want to do... that, and
when that time comes then you can leave.
Suit yourself. Though I don’t know any man
who would turn down gettin’ it on with
the likes of a pretty thang like you, yo.
Seems Krycek has already forgotten that he has
been cuddling with his “one true love”... his “love of his life”...
his “reason for being”... his Marita Lynn.
Krycek kicks off his boots and lies down again.
Alex stands up, hands on her hips. John rolls his eyes and lies down
on his and Alex’s mattress.
Here we go again.
You are so in the dog house, Sasha.
What? What’d I say? I da man.
Thing? You called me a “thing”? Is
that the way you always talked to women?
What? What are you talking about?
She looks at him, wondering why it is taking
so long for an apology.
She’s waiting for an apology, man.
(beat) I mean, you were married once... Right?
Yeah. Me and Marita were “married by the heart”.
And didn’t you ever have to apologize
for dumb boy things that you did?
Krycek thinks hard about this one.
Don’t hurt yourself, Alex.
Krycek gives her a little glare.
I’m sorry I called you a “thang”.
Apology accepted. I guess even after
all these years with you, I still have
some getting used to when it comes to you boys.
Please don’t pluralize “boys” when it
comes to the dumb things he does on his own.
Sorry Fox- Mulder.
TIME CUT – LATER THAT NIGHT
Outside, up against the wooden side of the cabin
are John and Alex, going at it, in three feet of snow. The wind is
cold so all their clothes are still on. They’re trying to be quiet,
but without success. There’s no passion or true love here, their attempt
at reproducing is very technical. They try to communicate with each
other in order to get this act of reproduction over as quickly as
possible. Yes, they are involved and are a couple, but not in the
way that we’ve previously seen between John and Dana.
Inside Mulder lies awake, hearing John and Alex.
He glances over at Krycek, he’s also awake. They share a look and
Krycek wiggles his eyebrows and gives Mulder a thumbs-up. Mulder grabs
You wake me if we are attacked.
Krycek nods his head and watches as Mulder plugs
out the sound of John and Alex outside. Mulder lies down and turns
his back to Krycek. Krycek looks around him and picks up his earplugs
and puts them in his ears. He’d rather spend his “quiet time” with
Marita. He lies down and turns his back to Mulder and snuggles with
Marita. If they were to be attacked 1) Marita may not wake up. 2)
John and Alex are busy sexing each other up outside to be prepared
and 3) Mulder and Krycek would have no clue and they would all die.
Suddenly Marita’s eyes flutter open and she
sits up next to Krycek, curious as to who she hears having sex, and
where she is. She hasn’t noticed that she is being cuddle by Krycek.
Her mind is on the aliens that had mentioned something to her about
a breeding camp where women would be taken, where she would be taken.
She quietly gets up, grabs a machete from John and Alex’s side of
the room and quietly tip-toes to the door of the cabin. She opens
it cautiously and steps outside into the freezing cold weather.
She presses her back up against the wall of
the cabin, machete ready to swing out and hurt anyone who may grab
her. She peers around the corner and sees John and Alex. Her eyes
bug in fear that she may be next to be...
I’m almost there, Johnny, hurry up.
Call me John. (beat) Me too.
(doing her best to sound into “it”)
Oh God! Oooh!
Shh, Alex. We don’t want to wake them.
Don’t be sorry, just finish.
Let’s not argue.
I’m not arguing.
Marita’s brow wrinkles in confusion. That’s
John Doggett, Dana’s John. What the hell is he doing with some girl
Why isn’t this the strangest
way and place to umm... make love?
Doggett practically hops away from Alex and
zips up his pants.
Marita! You’re awake!
What about Dana?
She looks at Doggett with complete disapproval
of his actions with this other woman here tonight.
Maybe we should go inside and talk.
Are you sure you want to? Or do you
want to keep cheating on Dana?
I’m not cheating on anyone-
(her voice sqeaks)
-Then what the hell is this?!
Like I said, I think we should
all go inside and talk.
Doggett reaches out to her.
Can you give me the machete?
Marita looks at the machete, then at Doggett.
She narrows her eyes at him.
John, she may still be paranoid.
(under breath, not moving lips)
I know. That’s why I’m trying
to get the machete from her.
Doggett takes a step towards Marita.
How do I know I can trust you? The
John Doggett I knew would never be
unfaithful to Dana.
Marita... it’s me, the John Doggett
you know. Dana passed away. (beat)
Now can you give me the machete, and
we can go inside and talk, ok?
Marita holds tightly onto the machete for a
moment, looking at John to see if he’s sincere. After a moment she
relaxes and hands it over to him. They all go inside.
INT. CABIN – CON’T
Mulder and Krycek are fast asleep. Alex rolls
her eyes, not surprised. Doggett lights the lantern and sets it on
the table. He pulls out a chair for Marita and she sits. John and
Alex sit across from her.
Ok. So what’s going on?
How about we start with you. (beat) What’s
that last thing you remember?
Well... I was being held at the Alien’s headquarters,
formerly the Pentagon, with Alex and Mulder. They were
asking me questions, doing some sort of sound test on
us. Alex thought he killed me, then keeled over. There
was a bright light and I woke up in the snow. Which is
when I heard a tornado siren, then the loud humming that
I last heard at the Pentagon, only worse, and I fell over.
Where are we? Why is it cold?
How did Dana die? And who the hell is she?
Marita glares at Alex, disapproving of her.
We’re in Virginia. (beat) The climate became
cold during the last battle at Long Island
about five years ago. We’re not entirely sure
why this happened, but Krycek believes it had
something to do with an artifact that a man
named Comer had. He believes it was connected
with another artifact just like it, and then
suddenly temperatures dropped and the world
became as it is now.
Alex McCord stands and retrieves the artifact
from a shelf and sets it on the table. Marita looks at it.
We’ve always wondered if things would
have been different had the cold come
on or before the final battle.
The colonist aliens are weak in
cold temperatures. Before the world
froze they were nearly unstoppable, but
after, they were much easier to kill.
That makes sense. My father’s group
did research and discovered that
when a human was infected with the alien
virus that the gestation period was prolonged
in freezing temperatures. Heat, like we
had before and during colonization, sped it
up, strengthened the aliens.
If we had been able to freeze the world
sooner with this artifact, then maybe,
just maybe more people would have survived.
How many people are left?
Since the May 24th attacks we haven’t
had contact with any other groups
of survivors. Far as we can tell, we’re
the only ones left.
And how is it that you’ve managed to
survive this long? Why don’t the aliens
try to find you? Kill you?
The original colonists left the planet
as the freeze happened.
We don’t consider the colonists a
threat anymore. They only do fly-bys
to check up on the hybrids they left behind.
Hybrids... from the breeding camps?
There are two threats on the planet now.
The main threat from the Breeders, men
gone savage as a result of what the aliens
injected them with when they were taken
to the breeding camps.
Then there are the hybrids. Though they
are part alien, they’ve been created to
be able to withstand the cold much like
us humans are capable of doing. They are
strong like the colonists, but are not
weakened by the cold.
Marita nods her head. She can understand that.
Hybrids are part alien and part human. Hybrids will have the strengths
of both their parts, human and alien.
(after a beat)
Dana was dying of cancer, but that
wasn’t what killed her. (beat) During
the final battle in 2007, she was shot
and killed. She died in my arms.
See, that’s where you loose me. You keep
saying that all of this happened years ago.
(beat) So I guess I need to know, when am I?
It’s March 18th in the year 2012.
Marita’s eyes widen.
And this is Alexandra McCord. She was
part of a group lead by a man named Ray
Douglas. Everyone from that group was
killed when they were attacked by aliens.
And what about Skinner? Or Monica? All the others?
They died too. In the final
battle of the War.
Monica is assumed dead, but we never found her.
We lost the war, didn’t we?
Doggett slowly nods his head in affirmation.
We’re just trying to survive now.
What about overseas?
Hard to tell. Communications were destroyed.
Honestly, there’s an unlikely chance there are
many survivors at all, even world wide.
Marita’s eyes have filled with tears.
Why is this happening? Why have I been
brought here? Surely there must’ve been
something we could’ve done to stop them?
I just... I can’t hear this. I can’t-
She’s cut off by the sound of the tornado siren
blaring, much louder this time, obviously closer to their cabin than
in the clearing where Doggett found Marita. Marita looks around confused.
And what the hell is that?!
Alex rises quickly and finds their earplugs.
Checks to make sure Mulder and Krycek are secure. She comes back to
Doggett places the earplugs in his ears, and
Alex does to herself. Doggett looks at Marita, no more earplugs are
in their possession.
Trust me, you don’t want to hear what’s coming.
Without another word, he plugs his fingers into
Marita’s ears. She doesn’t move, wondering how long this will last.
Five minutes later, Alex removes her earplugs.
Doggett watches her, as does Marita. She nods her head at John, and
he removes his fingers from Marita’s ears, then removes his earplugs.
And that was?
Another one of their methods of warfare.
It’s a sound barrier that carries with it
the ability to drive us to the point of murderous
paranoia. To turn us against each other and
kill one another.
Like their mind warfare?
Something like that.
And the tornado siren that comes before it?
Something John rigged up as a method of
protection. It has a sensitive sensor
that at the first sign of that intense humming it will
go off, alerting us to that noise. (beat)
We’d be dead if it weren’t for that siren.
The humming, I heard that out in the clearing.
I heard it back before I came here, when I was
with Krycek and Mulder at the Pentagon.
They were probably testing it on you.
So they’ve mastered it?
They want us to kill each other
so they don’t have to. (beat)
How did we lose the war?
They were stronger warriors. Had
the advantage too - a chip that carried
information on how to defeat us.
What do you mean a chip?
Mulder said that it was a chip that was in
a little girl that was in a plane crash from
years ago. That the plane time traveled to our time
so the aliens could get the chip rather than
the Syndicate. It was a case he and Dana worked
back in 2000. We figured once they realized the
chip that was in Dana’s neck was destroyed they
had to be a little drastic and do what they did.
Time travel, huh?
Kind of like missing five years, right?
So the aliens got this chip, and that’s
what did us in?
She looks at them confused. How could one chip
be so important to the whole scheme of things.
We never saw what was on the chip, but
assume that it had information about
Knowle Rohrer. (beat) During the final
battle, the aliens focused a lot of their
attention on taking him out. (beat) We assume
that this chip had our plans through some
sort of psychic technology.
Marita can’t help but be baffled by John Doggett
talking about such science fiction.
Do you know that what you’re saying is insane?
I know it sounds that way. Believe
me, I know. I’m just telling the facts.
They sit in silence for a moment.
Have you ever listened to Bach?
Mulder loves Bach. Especially the
Brandenburg concierto, number two.
Doggett and Alex listen, wondering where she’s
going with this random comment.
It was sent into outer space in the hopes
of one day reaching other life. They would
hear this music and think Earth was a wonderful
place. (beat) That sound, that message, travels
endlessly, across the airwaves, lasting through
out an infinite amount of time. Traveling with time.
(not sure what she’s getting at)
Yeah, it probably will.
What if I was brought here for a reason.
What if I am supposed to carry a message through time?
Alex and John listen.
When I was in that parking garage, I
saw an alien. But I didn’t feel threatened.
I didn’t have fear. In fact, I felt at peace.
Then the bright light... I have no memory of
what happened to me after that. (beat) What
if, somehow, I’m supposed to stop all that has
happened here? All that has happened to this planet?
She looks at them, they are unsure what to say.
I remember seeing an alien craft. Light in
color. I remember seeing it in the clearing.
Light in color?
Couldn’t have been one of their fly-bys.
No, it couldn’t. They have dark colored crafts.
So maybe I was abducted by aliens who
want to help us.
Samantha told us that she was abducted by
aliens that wanted to help her. That she didn’t
want to remove the implants because they were good.
Doggett looks at her, realizing that she doesn’t
know Mulder found his sister.
Mulder’s sister. He found her.
(Mulder was right??!)
So she really was abducted by aliens.
Yes. By aliens who helped her. When the
Colonist initially attacked, they used bees
that carried a virus. She was stung, and while
she watched her neighbors gestate alien foot
soldiers, she was fine. Never infected. The Colonists
weren’t able to track her through her implants.
Marita takes this all in.
Does anyone know how to do regression hypnosis?
I want to know what happened to me. If
I’m supposed to do something here, I want
to know. I just can’t sit here, hearing all
of this and accept that I’ve missed five years
of my life. I just can’t do it. There has to
be a reason for me coming here. There has to
be some way that we can still save the planet.
Like create a time machine and
send you back five years?
Maybe. (beat) If that were possible
we’d have to know what went wrong and
how to fix it.
This isn’t a Hollywood script. Man-made
time travel is impossible.
What if we got our hands on one of
their spacecrafts and figured it out?
Alex has claimed he knows how to fly a UFO.
Doggett rolls his eyes. This is getting ridiculous.
We’d have to shoot one down out
of the sky on one of their rare fly bys.
Then we’d have to repair the damages
we caused and then we’d have to know how
to not only use it but how to fly it as well.
Then perhaps we need to figure out what
we can do to communicate with the past.
I’m sorry, what? (long beat) Impossible!
No. She may be onto something here.
(not her too)
Radio waves. The Brandenburg concierto.
Radio waves can’t be stopped unless
intercepted. What if we were able to harness
the path of a radio wave created in our past
and somehow make our broadcast travel back in time.
Not quite. Get a really clear night.
Could work. I mean, we were able to
get a system rigged up for the sound.
Why not give this a try?
Yeah, but how?
Mulder gets up and goes over to their table.
Intercept the signal that Brandenburg
concierto is on and try to reverse it
and hope someone with a big enough sat
is around to hear it. (beat) Honestly,
what have we to lose? I know it sounds
impossible, but pull a wire here, replace
one there, re-route that, and poof! Could
be done. (beat) Besides, I have Mulder Luck.
Ok. Say this is actually possible. Where in
the world are we going to get a satellite
big enough to do that? How are we going to
intercept that signal?
The Pentagon would have the means.
Doggett looks at her with doubt.
Not to burst your bubble, but the Pentagon
is located at the heart of enemy territory.
It’s where their headquarters are.
I know. I was there.
Five years ago you were there. I’m sure
they’ve done enough remodeling to
change everything you saw.
My point exactly.
Not the response Doggett was expecting. Mulder
They’d now be able to intercept that
airwave. They’d have the means to do
what we need to do.
Too risky! We can’t afford to waltz
in there and act like we own the place.
Duh, dum-dum. We’ll have to go
in secretly. Krycek and I’ve done it
tons of times.
Everyone looks at him with doubt.
BEFORE the aliens colonized. Krycek had
this thing about stalking Knowle...
Ok... but you did this to humans, not
mind reading aliens. And that was years
ago. I’m sure you’re out of practice.
Any truth to the theory of aluminum foil hats?
Mulder claimes to it.
He rolls his eyes.
I’ll take my chances.
We don’t have any aluminum foil.
Well, I don’t know then. But we
have to do something. I should go
in alone. No need to risk anymore lives.
No. Out of the question. I’m not going
to lose another Super Buddy! (beat)
And I know this world better than you.
I have Mulder Luck.
No point in arguing this now. We can’t
even think up a way to get in there safely.
Until then, it’s out of the question. (beat)
And Mulder... Mulder Luck or not, you’re not going.
She gives him a stern look, knowing all too
well that he’ll believe whole heartedly in Mulder Luck to just walk
in there and try to get the aliens to join Super Buddies.
(ignoring her stern look)
Actually, you know aluminum isn’t as effective
as silver, gold or even platinum.
Are you still on the foil hats?
Mulder shrugs and smiles.
And where are we going to find
any of that, genius?
Maybe the gas station down that
snowy, icy road. That’s where we
got all of our canned food. Who’s
to say they don’t have-
-S-so what? We’re gonna just... just
go there and buy Plutonium and build
a time machine out of a frickin’ DeLorean?
Hell, why don’t we make it fly?
Great Scott! Doc, you’re spazzing out on us.
This is heavy.
She slaps her palm of her hand to her forehead
and rests her head.
I’m serious! Do you know how
insane you are sounding?
Hey, I’m not the one who’s talking
about building a time machine out
of a DeLorean and making it fly.
I was just saying that I don’t think
we should abandon Marita’s idea of going
in there and using their equipment. (beat)
Yeah, it’s dangerous but I have Mulder Luck.
This is our planet and we’re just sitting here
accepting defeat. Remember, love and friendship conquers all.
Krycek sits up from his bed. He looks over at
the table with a scowl on his face.
They all turn to look at him, maybe he has something
to add to this conversation. Maybe he sees that his one true love
(after a short beat)
I’m trying to get my beauty sleep.
Could you shut your traps!? Geez!
He pulls a sleeping eye mask out from one of
his pockets and puts it over his eyes, puts the ear plugs back in
his ears and falls back onto his pillow, pulling the blankets over
his head to continue with his “beauty sleep”.
Marita turns to the others.
Well, some things never change.
Yeah, he’s still a drama queen.
You know, he has a point. (beat)
We should all get some sleep.
She looks at Doggett, seeing that he’s calming
down from the “flying DeLorean” incident.
Marita. Um. Well, since Alexander is
in my bed, you can have his and I’ll
stay on guard duty tonight. You know
so you can have your own place to sleep
without having to worry about any...
“I’m a man” incidents like that one time
on that road trip to Colorado.
She smiles at him. He blushes a bit.
It’s a wonder we never hooked up.
She kisses him on the cheek.
Well, you know... Rule #1.
He smiles at her.
Well, I’m outie!
He goes over to the door and grabs his coat
to go out on guard duty for the night.
TIME CUT TO:
EXT. CABIN – NIGHT
Mulder stands guard outside the cabin, his weapon
leaning against it. He is cold and is rubbing his hands up and down
his arms to create warmth through friction.
Golly is it cold out here. Gotta
move. Gotta do something.
He leaves his post up against the wall and starts
to pace around an empty spot in front of the cabin.
Billie Jean is not my lover
She's just a girl who claims that I am the one
But the kid is not my son
Billie Jean is not my lover
She's just a girl who claims that I am the one
But the kid is not my son
She says I am the one, but the kid is not my son
He starts to do the Moon Walk in the snow, followed
by a couple more Jackson moves. He finishes and smiles to himself.
Hee! I still got it.
He scans the area around him. He stops upon
hearing a twig snap. It could be any of the following things, 1) a
lost animal suitable for their next meal – he better get John if it
is; 2) a hybrid out to kill them; or 3) one of the breeders coming
to feast on or rape them. He prepares for either of the last two options.
Mulder goes over to his weapon and grabs onto
it. What he should probably do is get John, but no... he doesn’t.
(a little scared)
Mulder looks in the direction of her voice.
His jaw drops wide. He can’t believe his Super Buddy is still alive!
Eep! Ohmygosh! Monica!!
He rushes over to her and hugs her. His weapon
drops to the ground. He hasn’t noticed that Monica is hunched over
as if she were in pain. Her sweater has been ripped and she is shivering.
Mulder? Is it really you?
Of course it’s me! Ohmygosh! This is
just so super exciting! You’re alive!
I’m so cold...
Well, we’ll get you inside and
have some nice warm hot coco!
He notices that she is in pain.
(a little more serious)
Oh gawd... are you hurt? Are you ok?
I don’t know. I escaped them. They
were after me, but I lost them.
Mulder wraps his arms around her and leads her
into the cabin.
You’re frozen like a Popsicle!
I’m scared Mulder. They were doing
terrible, terrible things to me.
She starts to cry.
Oh no no no, don’t cry!
Mulder starts to cry as they enter the cabin.
INT. CABIN – CON’T
Mulder comes in bawling. Monica looks at him,
wondering if he’s all right. The door shuts with a slam, waking John
Mulder, what is it now?
(no longer bawling)
It’s Monica! I told you she
was alive! You can’t keep a
Super Buddy down!
John is up in a heartbeat. Mulder leads Monica
over to a chair at the table and helps her sit down, pushing in her
She needs some hot coco.
Alex stands back, watching. She’s a little unsure
and knows that Mulder can be blinded by the “power” of Super Buddies.
Where was she?
Out in the forest! I had just finished
doing the Moon Walk and...
They held me prisoner.
For how long?
I have no idea. I lost track of
time. They were terrible...
She wipes tears from her face.
They killed so many people and
I don’t know why.
What are the chances she’s been followed?
As I said before: You can’t keep
a Super Buddy down. She wasn’t followed.
Marita sits up in bed, watching the situation.
Doggett goes over and shakes Krycek awake, whispering to him that
Monica is here. He gets up and smiles, not realizing how terrible
his bed head is. His vanity would suffer immensely.
She could’ve led them to us.
Hey there hot stuff. My hot tamale!
Good God John! Did you have to wake him up?
She looks at John sternly.
Sorry. I didn’t know-
No use in continuing. It was stupid to wake
Mulder! A word?
I’ll be right there!
Mulder gives Monica a mug of hot coco and walks
over to Alex across the room.
I know you want to believe it’s her-
-You’re saying that she’s not?
We need to proceed with caution, Mulder.
You know that. Remember the story of what
happened to Dana years ago? How the group
she was with was infiltrated by a shape-shifting alien.
Aliens are long gone. And besides, Super Buddies.
Then why did we test Marita? Huh? We
have to be careful. We don’t know what
these hybrids are capable of.
Mulder opens his mouth to say something, but
she stops him, already knowing what he wants to say.
I know you want to believe without a doubt
that she’s really the Monica you know. I know
you want nothing more than to just have it be
her, but we can’t lose our heads in this. (beat)
I want to trust her too, but we have to make sure.
I’m sure it’s really her, but-
Fine. But I’m telling you, you
can’t bring a Super Buddy down.
It’s her! I’m positive. I can
feel it, like the Force flowing through me.
Ok. I’m going to run the test on her.
Mulder nods his head and Alex is relieved that
there’s no issue with them testing her to make sure she is who she
says she is.
Across the room, Monica could hear their conversation.
Just to make certain you are who you are.
Monica nods her head, understanding. Alex comes
up to her and draws her blood.
What can you tell us about what they
were doing with you?
Wasn’t just me. There were others who
were like me – psychics. (beat) They
killed them all.
And they left you alive. Why?
I-I don’t know. They were testing me.
Flashing bright lights in my eyes, keeping
me disoriented. I never knew why, they never
answered any of my questions.
Maybe they just wanted to see how much
you could take. This bright light you
speak of... was there any noise with it?
No. Just bright light.
Marita nods her head.
Maybe they’re trying to develop
a new weapon to use against us.
Maybe they know we’ve rigged a
siren to alert us of the noise.
Perhaps. (beat) She’s clean.
Mulder smiles. He knew a Super Buddy couldn’t
be kept down!
Where is everyone else? Our friends? Knowle?
Doggett shakes his head.
They didn’t make it. We’re all that’s left.
Monica looks at him for a moment, shocked by
How can that be? No one else is alive?
Doggett kneels down in front of her, knowing
how emotional she is when it comes to things like this.
This isn’t right. Something has to
be done. We can’t just let them win.
We actually may have a plan. It’s all
in theory though.
What is it? Maybe I can help.
Try to hitch a radio transmission
on the Brandenburg concerto airwave
and send it to the past via alien technology.
Monica looks at her like she’s crazy.
Is that even possible?
It could be possible if we use technology
that isn’t from our planet. It’s been said that
some alien abductees reported that they traveled
through time. So, who’s to say that a transmission
can’t do the same?
This is all over my head.
You’ve been inside their headquarters,
maybe you can help us get inside.
I thought we exhausted this
conversation for the night.
We did, but things have changed. I mean
she’s spent a few years there. Wouldn’t
she know how to get in and out. She did escape.
You’re saying you want me to go back
there? After all that they did to me?
You can help us end this, change things
for a better world.
(scared to go back)
I don’t know...
Oh gee, you know, you don’t have
to do anything you don’t want to.
He’s almost on the verge of crying again.
We’ll discuss all of this later.
I volunteer for guard duty.
HEY! What about me?
How does she tell him that she doesn’t really
trust him out there. He was talking about doing the Moon Walk...
You took the first shift. I’ll take this one.
Alex bulks up in layers and heads out the door
for guard duty.
TIME CUT TO:
EXT. ALIEN HEADQUARTERS – NIGHT
24 HOURS LATER
MARCH 19, 2012
Our beloved gang travels secretly through the
white snow, doing their best to remain unseen from any hybrid guards
that may be watching the area. They are all dressed in white, wearing
hats that we assume are lined with some kind of metal (aluminum, gold,
silver, or platinum) so they can easily sneak into the building.
Mulder, with all his Mulder Luck in the world,
leads the way with Monica, followed closely by Marita and Krycek.
Their backup: John and Alex McCord.
With Monica leading the way inside, they enter
the headquarters with ease. Alex McCord has a suspicious eye on her,
still uncertain about this situation. The decision to come here last
night was made with her reluctance, but she was out numbered and so
here they are.
INT. ALIEN HEADQUARTERS – CON’T
Mulder is about to walk right into the openness
of the hallway around the corner, but Monica stops him, sensing a
guard near by. She shakes her head “no” and he stops. They all wait
quietly as a guard passes by, not noticing them.
Mulder smiles, points to his aluminum lined
hat and gives everyone a thumbs up. The hats are working!
Doggett rolls his eyes.
The communications room is on the
next floor. We can get there unnoticed
through the back stairwell just over there.
With the coast clear, they make their way to
the stairwell and close the door behind them. If it weren’t for a
psychic traveling with them, this would be a very bad idea as they
are locked in the building with no means to escape if necessary.
I’ve got a bad feeling about this.
Mulder and Krycek exchange a look and bob their
heads with giddiness.
Ok, Princess Leia.
They giggle at their “Star Wars” joke.
Knock it off you two. Now is hardly
the time to get distracted in the
way that you two do. So cowboy up and focus.
We don’t have time for anything else.
Doggett glares at him.
Sorry. I’ll stop.
They reach the top and cautiously exit the stairwell.
No signs of any hybrids, so they make their way out and start to look
for the communications room.
Anyone else feel like we’re snooping
around the Death Star?
Doggett rolls his eyes again. Why are they so
I do a little. I just hope we don’t
have a Han Solo moment where he’s
running from the Stormtroopers and
turns a corner and there are a whole
lot more and then he’s the one being chased.
That is a funny scene that three
Stormtroopers are running from one guy.
Boys, I think that is enough.
Stormtroopers are dumb.
Remember when you wanted to film
a “Star Wars” spoof called “Droid Wars”.
Ohmygod! Yes! I-C-U-P!
They giggle. Marita comes up to them, places
a hand over both of their mouths to shut them up. She glares at them,
and when she glares, it’s a mean mother fucking glare. They don’t
even apologize, they just shut up.
As they round the corner, they are ironically
face to face with a group of Hybrids, who seem to have been waiting
there for them.
(under his breath)
Oh my god... I’m Han Solo...
His eyes bug in fear. Stormtroopers he could
take, but Hybrids? He doesn’t think so...
Instinctively, John fires his weapon, beginning
a massive chaos of fighting.
Mulder tosses Monica a gun so she can defend
herself against the hybrids. However, she aims the gun at Mulder,
fires the weapon as a bullet speeds right through his head, killing
The others look on, horrified to see that Monica
isn’t the Monica they thought she was. Despite the blood test coming
back as 100% human, here she is, betraying them. Krycek stands with
his jaw dropped, looks at her, aims his gun and fires a few rounds
right into Monica. There is no effect. She smiles at him.
Marita takes off running. If she doesn’t get
to the communications room and transmit what she knows, there will
be no saving the future. Even if she doesn’t make contact now, someday,
somewhere, sometime, someone will eventually pick up her signal. Whether
she saves the future or not, she’ll save someone.
As she runs, Krycek offers her heavy cover fire.
The last thing he wants to see, if his life were to end tonight, is
Marita dying. He’s been there, done that, and would rather not see

INT. TRANSMISSIONS ROOM – CON’T
Marita is typing frantically, not wanting to
miss any detail she can offer. She can hear the sound of the Hybrids
coming down the hallway. Surely they must know where she is. She doesn’t
bother to look behind her as she wishes the receiver of her messages
a safe journey, hoping that things will happen quickly, that her messages
have changed this horrid future and that she’ll make it through this
Pounding starts to bang on the heavy door. They’re
right outside now. She stands away from the transmitter, unsure of
what to do. She isn’t armed with anything that could kill these things.
Not that she could defend herself with the proper weapon, they are
much stronger than her.
BAM! The door is broken down and the hybrids
And as they charge her, a flash of bright white
light blinds her vision as we:
