This, to me…just looks automatically like true love. That instant to connection to someone else. A desire to follow them and discover the joy and truth of life with them. I LOVE Mulder and Scully so much. <3 Nothing’s perfect, but they sure do come close in my mind.
“I blocked it out until the last moment where all of a sudden it hit me, that this person that I was standing in front of as I know him and have known him for such a long time, that this aspect of our relationship was coming to a close. We embraced and I just burst into tears. We held our embrace for a really long time and I think it was just flooding over us, the importance of this agreement that we’ve had to be in each other’s lives in a very powerful way.”
“I think it was written that Scully gives Mulder a kiss on the forehead. Kim Manners was there [directing], and I was so confused at that point that I didn’t trust my feelings about it because I had so many personal feelings. It was eight years of my life. I didn’t know what would be an appropriate ending. I didn’t know. And when Kim and I read it as we were about to shoot it, he said, ‘We’ve done that 100 times, the whole hand holding and the kiss on the forehead. Let’s do a real kiss.’ I was like, ‘Yeah, that feels right.’”
“The last shot in the picture was Gillian handing David the baby in her bedroom. David leaned over and gave her a kiss, and the camera then pulled back out of the doorway and just kept going down the hall. We got the shot, and we cut it and printed it; the nurse came and took the baby away. And David put his arms around Gillian, and she put her arms around him, and they stood there for about ten minutes, and never said a word to each other. The tears were just rolling down their faces, and the whole crew stood there and watched this in silence. It was truly one of the most emotional experiences I’ve ever witnessed in my life.”

Happy Birthday, The X-Files.

I love how they connected the Pilot and the last episode with these beautiful scenes between Mulder and Scully. From the very beginning, they had a clear and deep connection. And they kept that connection until the very end. Perhaps I put too much faith in Mulder and Scully’s love, but I want a love like that, a connection like that. Someone to travel the labyrinth with.
- MULDER: You saved the world, Scully.
- SCULLY: Yeah... You're right. I did.
- FROHIKE: What kind of drugs is he on?
- LANGLY: I want some.
- -The X-Files, "Triangle"--The Lone Gunmen always add some comedy to an episode
MULDER: You… were my friend, and you told me the truth. Even when the world was falling apart, you were my constant… my touchstone.
SCULLY: And you are mine.

<3 I truly believe they have a spiritual connection. They need each other. They guide each other. Through the good times and bad.
Well, it seems to me that the best relationships— the ones that last— are frequently the ones that are rooted in friendship. You know, one day you look at the person and you see something more than you did the night before. Like a switch has been flicked somewhere. And the person who was just a friend is… suddenly the only person you can ever imagine yourself with.
