Please ask first.
Well, I was always considered a raving lunatic anyway.
Now people can say whatever they want. Walter, I had no
other choice but to get aggressive with you. There was
no other way.
All the things I was hearing coming from other people's minds
were not the cause. They were the necessity. It hurt me to do it.
I had to damn well strangle you to get that message into your
pocket. Had to. I planned it.They bought the uncontrollable bit,
and you came in and saw me as I wanted you to see me. It was
a hard act to put on. It pained me to put myself up for more
Better for you to see me this way than Scully, though. I cannot
tell you that.
The haloperidol, with its muscle stiffness and the other side
effects is worth it. So is the blood I had to get from hurting
You got my message. I know you are on my side, and I knew that
when I was acting out. You came through for me. The one man who
could help you help me came through for all of us.
You should be protecting Scully right now. God knows what is
against her. So do I.
Whatever I need to endure to get out of this predicament, to get well,
to make sure that all of us are okay in the end, I will do.
If that means I'm a ranting, raving lunatic, so be it. IT will have been
well worth any suffering I undergo to save your lives.
I fear the worst is yet to come. Just knowing everyone else is all right
in the end will be worth it. I know. I'm crazy. Just for now.
