Melissa: There is no right or wrong. Life is just a path. You follow your heart and it will take you where you’re supposed to go.
Scully: I don’t believe in fate. I think we have to choose our own path.
Melissa:Well, just don’t mistake the path for what is really important in life.
Scully: Which is what?
Melissa:The people you’re going to meet along the way. You don’t know who you’re going to meet when you join the FBI. You don’t know how your life is going to change or how you’re going to change the life of others.
