9




(The phone rings in REYES' bedroom. Her alarm clock shows the time as 9:09. REYES' picks up. The screen splits in half.)


REYES: (into phone) Hello?


SCULLY: (into phone) All right. I need to know.


REYES: (into phone) What?


SCULLY: (into phone) What my numerology is. My number. Whatever you call it. What am I?


REYES: (into phone) You're a nine.


SCULLY: (into phone) Which means what?


REYES: (into phone) Nine is completion. You've evolved through the experiences of all the other numbers to a spiritual realization that this life is only part of a larger whole.


(SCULLY is silent, and looks happy at what she's hearing.)




MULDER: 
Have you heard of Jerusalem Syndrome?

SCULLY: 
Yeah, it's when people who visit the Holy Land suffer religious delusions induced by the journey.

MULDER: 
Yeah, they return home convinced they're the Messiah, Moses, the Virgin Mary, even the Devil himself. 
Well, if that's what Simon Gates believes, he's just as delusional as Michael Kryder, only a lot more dangerous.

SCULLY: 
Yeah, but it still doesn't explain how he was able to burn his fingerprints into Owen Jarvis' flesh.
