Hey, Stevie, you okay?

I got...

I got the wind knocked out of me.

Looks like a cave or something.

Stevie, what's going on?

It's a human skull!

- Toss it up here, dude!

- No way, butt-wipe. This is mine.

Anyway, there's bones

all over the place, man.

What the...


- Hey, Stevie!

- You okay?

Hey, man... let's get out of here!

Give me a fourteen footer!

Captain Miles Cooles.

Got a rescue situation in progress,

out by the old town road IC.

Rope's in the hole.

Let's go. Two down.

What ya got, TC? Talk to me.

Do you see the boy? Talk to me.

Come back, TC. You see the kid?

Danny, check TC's radio.

TC? Glenn, Sal, in the hole.

- Get those people out of here!

- Move them back!

Come on. Move back.

Move back, folks.

I sent four men down there for the boy.

Report is, his eyes had turned black.

Now we have lost communication with my men.

What about my men?

What about my men!

What the hell is this?

It's Bronschweig.

Sir, the impossible scenario

that we never planned for?

Well, we'd better come up with a plan.

We have evacuated the building

and been through it bottom to top.

There's no trace of an explosive

device or anything resembling one.

Have you sent the dogs through yet?

Yes, sir.

Well, send them through again.

All right, guys.

Let's do it again!

Mulder, it's me.

- Where are you, Scully?

- I'm on the roof.

- Did you find anything?

- No, I haven't.

What's wrong?

Well, I just climbed up 12 floors,

I'm hot, I'm thirsty,

and, to be honest, I'm wondering

what I'm doing up here.

You're looking for a bomb.

Yes, I know that...

but the threat was called into the

Federal Building across the street.

I think they have that covered.

Mulder, when a terrorist bomb threat is called in,

the rational purpose of providing that

information is to allow us to find the bomb.

The rational object of terrorism

is to promote terror.

If you'd study the statistics, you'd find a model

behavioral pattern for virtually every case...

where a threat has turned up an explosive device,

and if we don't act in accordance with that

data, if you ignore it, as we have done,

the chances are great that, if there actually

is a bomb, we might not find it.

Lives could be lost.




Jesus, Mulder!

Whatever happened to playing a hunch, Scully?

The element of surprise.

Random acts of unpredictability.

If we fail to anticipate the unforeseen, or expect

the unexpected in a universe of infinite possibilities,

we may find ourselves at the mercy of anyone

or anything that cannot be programmed, categorized, or easily referenced.

What are we doing up here, Scully?

It's hotter than hell.

I know you're bored in this assignment, Mulder,

but unconventional thinking is only

gonna get you into trouble now.

- What makes you think I'm bored?

- You gotta quit looking for what isn't there.

They have closed the X-Files.

There's procedure to be followed now. Protocol.

Maybe we should call in a bomb threat to Houston.

I think it's free beer night at the Astrodome.

Oh. Now what?

It's locked?

So much for anticipating the unforeseen.

- I had you.

- No, you didn't.

- Oh yeah. I had you big time.

- You had nothing.

Come on, I saw you jiggle the handle.

I saw your face, Mulder.

There was a definite moment of panic.

You have never seen me panic.

When I panic, I make this face.

That was the face.

- You didn't see that face.

- I saw that face. You're buying.

Coke? Pepsi? Saline lV?

Something sweet.

- Scully.

- Scully, I found the bomb.

You're funny. Where are you, Mulder?

I'm in the vending room.
