Sebastian (to Borin): When I get this way, I tend to miss glaring social cues.

Like a gorgeous, imposing woman I don't know standing right in front of me. I'm gonna stop talking.

Borin (looking at screen): mm.Panspermia.
Sebastian: Yeah, that's a very astute observation. They do look like microscopic alien life-forms that inhabited the universe by getting trapped in debris How the hell do you know that? Are you a scientist? You work for the government? (clears throat) (whispers): Like, the government, government?
Sebastian: Makes you wonder what else they're keeping from us.
Borin: We should call Mulder and Scully.
Sebastian: Best villain: Tooms or Pusher?
Borin: Tooms.
Sebastian: Best episode: €œ'Squeeze€' or €'œDrive'?
Borin: Squeeze.
