“They say three species disappear from the planet every day…You have to wonder how many new ones are being created.” — Mulder (p.107)

Cerita di buku ini tentu saja sama persis dengan yang di film (padahal gak nonton atau lupa episode ini sih).Dan yang ada di kepala adalah si Mas David Duchovny dan Mbak Gillian Anderson yang kece punyak itu.
Saya suka series nya tapi kalo buat bacaan ya biasa-biasa aja.hehe.
