Well Manicured Man Quotes and Sounds

I have gathered these sounds from various sources in the Net, but mainly from TD's legendary site. None of them is mine.

The Blessing Way

These quotes are from WMM's conversation with Scully after Bill Mulder's funeral.
  • "Oh my yes." (17K .wav)
  • "Why should that surprise you? Motives are rarely unselfish."
  • "We predict the future and the best way to predict the future is to invent it." (66K .wav)
  • "I'm not here to tell you lies." (33K .wav)
  • "Good day, young lady." (33K .wav)

    Paper Clip

  • "This is not a profession for men who make mistakes. My God, you presume to make us believe you can simply fix it with enough bullets?" (to CSM) (116K .wav)
  • "It's not for me to say but your life in danger now too. You also threaten to expose the project. You have become your father." (to Mulder)
  • "Why would I lie to you?" (33K .wav)


  • "I come out here because there are no phones. What is it?" (to CSM)
  • "You fool, you stupid fool! This must be corrected; this must be handled!" (to CSM)
  • "I don't think you realize what's at stake here, what level this must be carried to. This will take more than just a good aim!" (to CSM)

    The End

  • "It's not a game, for God's sake." (to CSM)
  • WMM: There's nothing to be afraid of. GIBSON: You're a liar. Just like him. CSM: (to WMM) You've never had the stomach for our business. WMM: Just not for your practices. CSM: I'm a necessity. The complement to your cowardice. WMM: Your work is done now. CSM: My work is just beginning. (CSM begins walking away. WMM helps GIBSON into the back seat of the car, then gets in the passenger side.) KRYCEK: (looking at the departing CSM) I got a nice, straight shot. WMM: No. He's useful. And you may need him in the future.

    X-Files Movie

    At the meeting of the Syndicate:
  • "My God!"
  • "In hope of what? Learning that it's true? That we are nothing but digestives for the creation of a new race of alien life-forms?! By cooperating now, we are but beggers to our own demise."
  • "Kill Mulder, we take the risk of turning one man's quest into a crusade." (66K .wav)

    Conversation in the car: (No, not *that* conversation! This one is betwen WMM and Mulder.)
  • "What is a virus, but a colonizing force that cannot be defeated? Living in a cave, underground, until it mutates--and attacks."
  • "No. For God's sake, you've got it all backwards! AIDS, the Ebola virus, on an evolutionary scale they are newborns. This virus walked the planet long before the dinosaurs."
  • "Trust no one, Mr. Mulder." (33K .wav)

    And the last words of Well Manicured Man:
  • "Find Agent Scully. Only then will you realize the scope and grandeur of the project. Go. Go now!"
