Basement level. The elevator dings open and Scully storms out and into the LBO. "Were you called about this? Did AD Follmer come down here?" she asks, stomping over to a file cabinet and rustling through the papers. Moronica and Doggett stare at her in silence for a moment. "Brad Follmer?" Moronica finally asks. No, Moronica. His sister, Kitty Follmer, the renowned interior decorator. Scully thinks the LBO needs a spot of chintz. Scully mutters something about DPB "going through the X-Files." Doggett doubts that DPB even knows where their office is. Despite the fact that DPB has made a series of snide "have fun in the basement"-type comments in the past. Finally, Scully emerges from the files and flips through a folder, looking thoughtful and sort of pissed. Moronica wonders what Scully's looking for. "These!" Scully says, pulling out one of her original rubbings from the African Spacecraft of Season Whatever That Was. Seven? Sure. Let's go with seven. Whatever. She runs down that whole storyline (sort of) for Doggett's and Moronica's benefit, and mentions that this morning she was shown an exact copy of one of her own rubbings. And she was asked to ID it! "What did you tell them about these?" Moronica asks. Sloooooowly. As is her wont. "Nothing," Scully says. "And what aren't you telling us?" Moronica asks. "That they're powerful," Scully finally admits. Doggett is skeptical. We knew that. "They're not just marks, Agent Doggett," Scully says. "It's writing. Words. Powerful words." And she thinks that because if the muckety-mucks are keeping this investigation secret, they must know that the words are powerful, too. And yet another scene ends with people Staring Meaningfully at each other.
