The X-Files - S1:E16 "Young At Heart"

[ S1:E15 "Lazarus" <<< Season 1 >>> S1:E17 "E.B.E." ]

Mulder is haunted by the messy details of his first case with the FBI, when he was young and inexperienced, when the criminal he put away starts to fulfill his vendetta against Mulder - years after he was supposed to have died in prison. But the solution to this mystery may be less paranormal and more para-medical. Government conspiracy and human testing color this cynical story about the search for a fountain of youth.

Memorable quotes:

Agent Purdue: You know, all this talk around here about "Spooky" Mulder - I never used to pay it much mind. I figured it was just talk about how paranoid you were and all.
Mulder: And now?
Agent Purdue: Remember the day you walked into my office wet from Quantico? You pissed me off just looking at you, but then I saw how your mind worked, how you were always three jumps ahead. It was scary, Mulder. Everybody said so.

Scully: Mulder, it's science fiction.
Mulder: Well, what would you have said twenty years ago about gene splicing, DNA fingerprinting, cloning, artificial intelligence?

Scully: Mulder, I know what you did wasn't by the book.
Mulder: Tells you a lot about the book, doesn't it?
