The X-Files: “The Post-Modern Prometheus” (1997):
Dana Scully: I think what we’re seeing here is an example of a culture for whom daytime talk shows and tabloid headlines have become a reality against which they measure their lives. A culture so obsessed by the media and a chance for self-dramatization that they’ll do anything in order to gain a spotlight.
Fox Mulder: I am alarmed that you would reduce these people to a cultural stereotype. Not everybody’s dream is to get on Jerry Springer.
Dana Scully: Psychologists often speak of the denial of an unthinkable evil or a misplacement of shared fears, anxieties taking the form of a hideous monster for whom the most horrific human attributes can be ascribed. What we can’t possibly imagine ourselves capable of we can blame of the ogre, on the hunchback, on the lowly half-breed. Common sense alone will tell you that these legends, these unverified rumors, are ridiculous.
Fox Mulder: But nonetheless, unverifiable and, therefore, true in the sense that they’re believed to be true.
Dana Scully: Is there anything that you don’t believe in, Mulder?
Awww Gloria and Dorothy! and the cutsie Janelle! <3
