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.
I am such a Mulder-Scully shipper. I love them so much, because they never overdo their relationship. And because they truly are on a life journey together, searching for truth and something that’s missing inside of them.
“You saved me! As difficult and as frustrating as it’s been sometimes, your goddamned strict rationalism and science have saved me a thousand times over! You’ve kept me honest … you’ve made me a whole person. I owe you everything … Scully, and you owe me nothing. I don’t know if I wanna do this alone… I don’t even know if I can … and if I quit now, they win.” -Fox Mulder
I actually was thinking about, uh…This gift that you gave me for my birthday. You never got to tell me why you gave it to me or what it means… but I think I know. I think that you appreciate that there are extraordinary men and women and… extraordinary moments when history leaps forward on the backs of these individuals… that what can be imagined can be achieved… that you must dare to dream… but that there’s no substitute for perseverance and hard work… and teamwork… because no one gets there alone… and that, while we commemorate the… the greatness of these events and the individuals who achieve them, we cannot forget the sacrifice of those who make these achievements and leaps possible.
