Line(s) of the Day #TheXFiles

mulder and scully

Fox Mulder: After all you’ve seen. After all you’ve told me you’ve seen. The account filled with medical files, the beings moving past you, the implant in your neck. Why do you refuse to believe?
Dana Scully: Believing is the easy part. I need more than you. I need proof.
Fox Mulder: You think that believing is easy?

Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny in the seminal paranormal drama The X-Files (1993 – 2002) (2016 -). The quote highlights how the trusting yet complex relationship between the two, with Mulder aware of how his views on the supernatural are mocked by outsiders and Scully desperate to find a logic to explain them.

  1. There were times during The X-files when I just wanted to knock some sense into Dana! Come on! Did you get to see the recent return to the series? And if you did, did you like it?

  2. It’s a great show that I used to live watching too. It’s lovely to see the two reprise their roles once again into the unknown.

    Scully: ” I’m Dana Sully, I’ve been assigned to work with you”.

    Mulder: “well isn’t it nice to be suddenly highly regarded”.

    • It’s been so great watching from the start to see how their characters evolve and their relationship develops. And knowing that you have no idea what kind of storyline each episode will be is a different delight. So far, my favourite one is the one I mention in the comments above. Do you remember it?

      • That’s why i enjoyed it. Like Buffy, it had a new paranoia episode which was quite captivating. I don’t remember it precisely as it’s been a long time since I watched it and only once as it’s quite a long series but I remember the episode of black oil I think where they find some virus infecting people’s eyes nose mouth. Not sure why I remember that out of the many but it was quite fascinating. ☺

      • You’re probably ahead of me. I really think they couldn’t have chosen two better actors for the role. I do remember it being the first show I seriously watched where the quality dropped substantially later on and how much it upset me.

      • I believe it was in season three. Yes I agree, they just work very well together and further down the line it’s rather charming.

        Yes I feel the same way. Somewhere down the felt it wasn’t as exciting as the first three seasons made out to be and it got rather disappointing. I suppose that’s always the fear with tv shows.

      • So do I. It’s quite charming but awkward for them at first heh. And then they do anything to save each other down the line which builds up their relationship.

    • It’s a joy to go through the episodes again. I really can’t remember them so like with them from scratch. Still feels so fresh. Such imagination and character dialogue.
