Fox Mulder: "We're too late! It's already been here."

Dana Scully: "Mulder, I hope you know what you're doing."

Fox Mulder: "Look, Scully, just like the other homes: Douglas fir, truncated, mounted, transformed into a shrine; halls decked with boughs of holly; stockings hung by the chimney, with care."

Dana Scully: "You really think someone's been here?"

Fox Mulder: "Someone, or something."

Dana Scully: "Mulder, over here - it's a fruitcake."

Fox Mulder: "Don't touch it! Those things can be lethal!"

Dana Scully: "It's O.K. There's a note attached: 'Gonna find out who's naughty and nice.'"

Fox Mulder: "It's judging them, Scully. It's making a list, and I know it'll check it twice."

Dana Scully: "Who? What are you talking about?"

Fox Mulder: "Ancient mythology tells of an obese humanoid entity who could travel at great speed in a craft powered by antlered servants. Once a year, near the winter solstice, this creature is said to descend from the heavens to reward its followers and punish disbelievers with jagged chunks of anthracite."

Dana Scully: "But that's legend, Mulder - a story told by parents to frighten children. Surely you don't believe it?"

Fox Mulder: "Something was here tonight, Scully. Check out the bite marks on this gingerbread man. Whatever tore through this plate of cookies was massive - and in a hurry."

Dana Scully: "It left crumbs everywhere. And look, Mulder, this milk glass has been completely drained."

Fox Mulder: "It gorged itself, Scully. It fed without remorse."

Dana Scully: "But why would they leave it milk and cookies?"

Fox Mulder: "Appeasement. Tonight is the Eve, and nothing can stop its wilding."

Dana Scully: "But if this thing does exist, how did it get in? The doors and windows were locked. There's no sign of forced entry."

Fox Mulder: "Unless I miss my guess, it came in through the fireplace."

Dana Scully: "Wait a minute, Mulder. If you're saying some huge creature landed on the roof and came down this chimney, you're crazy. The flue is barely six inches wide. Nothing could get down there."

Fox Mulder: "But what if it could alter its shape, move in all directions at once?"

Dana Scully: "You mean, like a bowl full of jelly?"

Fox Mulder: "Exactly. Scully, I've never told anyone this, but when I was a child my home was visited. I saw the creature. It had long white shanks of fur surrounding its ruddy, misshapen head. Its bloated torso was red and white. I'll never forget the horror. I turned away, and when I looked back it had somehow taken on the facial features of my father."

Dana Scully: "Impossible."

Fox Mulder: "I know what I saw. And that night it read my mind. It brought me a Mr. Potato Head, Scully. It knew that I wanted a Mr. Potato Head!"

Dana Scully: "I'm sorry, Mulder, but you're asking me to disregard the laws of physics. You want me to believe in some supernatural being who soars across the skies and brings gifts to good little girls and boys.

Dana Scully: "Listen to what you're saying. Do you understand the repercussions? If this gets out, they'll close the X-files."

Fox Mulder: "Scully, listen to me: It knows when you're sleeping. It knows when you're awake."

Dana Scully: "But we have no proof."

Fox Mulder: "Last year, on this exact date, SETI radio telescopes detected bogeys in the airspace over twenty-seven states. The White House ordered the military to defcon three."

Dana Scully: "But that was proven to be a meteor shower."

Fox Mulder: "Officially. Two days ago, eight prized Scandinavian reindeer vanished from the National Zoo, in Washington, D.C. Nobody - not even the zookeeper - was told about it. The government doesn't want people to know about Project Kringle. They fear that if this thing is proved to exist, the public will stop spending a significant portion of its annual income in a holiday shopping frenzy. Retail markets would collapse. Scully, half of all retail sales ocure from November 1st through December 25th. They cannot let the world believe this creature lives. There's too much at stake. They'll do whatever it takes to insure another silent night."

Dana Scully: "Mulder, I -"

Fox Mulder: "Shhhhh! Listen! Do you hear what I hear?!"

Dana Scully: "On the roof. It sounds like... a clatter."

Fox Mulder: "The truth is up there Scully! Let's get up there, and see what's the matter!"
