I love it... he attacks an FBI agent in her own home and less than a year later they're thinking of letting him out of the loony bin. Yeah I know it's a TV show...
WALTER! With CSM hovering in the background. Wooooooo!
Scully is such a badass. I love her.
Oh Mulder. Why can't you just learn to censor some of the crazy out of your spiels? And you know Scully is thinking the exact same thing: Mulder, you magnificent crazy bastard.
"The room in the back is small. But I'm sure you'll be able to... squeeze in." "I'm sure."
Finger-lickin' rat! Yum!
"Excuse me. Could you help me find my dog? He's a Norweigen elkhound. His name is Heinrich! I use him to hunt moose!"
"Now, I don't really care about my record, but you'd be in trouble just sitting in this car. And I'd hate to see you carry an official reprimand in your career file because of me." "Fox..." "I even made my parents call me Mulder. So... Mulder." "Mulder, I wouldn't put myself on the line for anybody but you." "If there's an iced tea in that bag, could be love." "Must be fate, Mulder. Root beer." That comment led to a years-long personal boycott of root beer.
Heh, once again, Mulder on his couch. Mmm look at those arms.
Aww, "Agent Mulder could not have done it because he was with me."
"Sir, I would expect you to place the same trust in me as I do in you." Way to not answer the question!
Man, Scully's suits are so, so icky.
Skinner's like, man, I'm trying here, cut me a break! I'm not that likable, even when I take my glasses off!
Dr. Monty's gonna become a snack! And it couldn't happen to a more deserving guy.
"I had no idea you were interested in Art." "I like art." I like Art! I like to eat Art's liver with fava beans and a nice Chianti!
"There's only room for one." "You can get the next mutant."
EW, NAKED MUTANT!
Mashed by the escalator! Classic! Now that's going to take some scrubbing.
CSM's first line: "Of course I do." (To Skinner's "Do you believe them?")
1x22 Born Again
This woman is very Sarah Silverman-esque.
Creepy kids. You gotta love them.
"How was the wedding?" "You mean the part where the groom passed out or the dog bit the drummer?" "Did you catch the bouquet." "Maybe."
Hey look, rainman.
Hmm, is this another murder from beyond the grave story?
Gross that was his ear.
Scully has brothers! Older and younger. Bill and Charlie, aren't they?
1x24 The Erlenmeyer Flask
Okay, the 'car goes flying over the crest of the hill and lands with no appreciable damage' thing is just so Dukes of Hazard.
I just looked again at the number of this episode. This is the S1 finale. Remember when television seasons had more than 20 or 22 episodes? Give it a couple of years and seasons will be about 12 episodes. Maybe 10.
The cops shot the guy in the back? Yeah right.
Green blood... so, the guy's a Vulcan?
Oooh the first episode with a different title card: "TRUST NO ONE".
I think this is the first time Deep Throat was actually referred to as such.
"You think he does it because he gets off on it?" "No. I think he does it because you do." Kinky!
"Maybe this time we can cut out the Obi-Wan Kenobi crap."
Why do these doctors involved in weird projects always work after hours, in the dark?
Purity control... that just gave me a weird flashbacks.
"Alright Mulder, but I'm warning you, if this is monkey pee, you're on your own."
Freaky bacteria. Hmm.
Zues Storage! On Pandora St! More flashbacks!
Hmm, some kind of toxic gas...
Gene therapy, highly experimental. Hee.
Oookay a room full of nekkid bodies in tanks. That's mildly disturbing.
A new base pair. "Agent Scully, what you are looking at exists nowhere in nature. It would have to be, by definition, extraterrestrial." SPOOKY!
Run Mulder run!
"I should know by now to trust your instincts." "Why? Nobody else does."
"For the first time in my life, I don't know what to believe."
Okay, and you just know that the bodies won't be there anymore. Duh.
"Doctor Berube was conducting human experiments with extraterrestrial viruses." "Yes, but that's been going on for years. We've had the tissue since 1947, but not the technology." "Roswell?" "Roswell was a smokescreen. We've had half a dozen better salvage operations. Dr. Berube was killed because his work was TOO successful. You're standing in the room where the first DNA transplant took, the first human-alien hybrid was created. Six volunteer patients, all terminally ill... as a result of the ET gene therapy, all six patients treated in this room began to recover from their illnesses."
"The man has a blood chemistry that is alien and very likely toxic."
Me trying to explain the mytharc to myself:
Okay, so over the decades the government has salvaged alien DNA and used it to create a gene therapy that can reverse otherwise fatal illnesses. What the government didn't forsee was actual hybrids being created, and surviving, and they're a liability because if people found out about them they would know that the government has been messing around with alien stuff.
And Mulder loses his gun. Mwahaha.
Eww toxic green blood!
Aww. Deep Throat and Scully teaming up to save Mulder! I love it when the guy plays the damsel in distress.
"Project password?" "Purity control." Good guess!
Eek, Scully's first alien! And a baby one at that!
1987 - group of children from a southern state injected with cloned alien DNA.
I wonder if old DT knew he was toast... "Trust... trust no one."
"Hey Scully, it's me."
*sniffles* Shutting down the X-Files... reassigning Mulder and Scully... for the first time ;)
"I'm not going to give up. I can't give up. Not as long as the truth is out there." *giggles*
CSM! With baby alien in a jar!
Did they ever say where 'Erlenmeyer Flask' came from? I didn't hear any actual references...
Good way to end a first season.
2x01 Little Green Men
On to season 2!
Ahh yes, the Arecibo telescope.
Mmm, sunflower seeds.
"Are you okay, Agent Scully? You kind of sounded a little spooky."
Meeting in the Watergate parking garage. Heehee.
Secret meetings! Sexy!
"Seeing is not enough. I should have something to hold on to. Some solid evidence. I learned that from you."
Aww she touched his hair.
So in the first season Mulder said that Samantha vanished from her bed, but in this version they're playing... what is it? Stratego? And watching TV. Was that a mistake or something done on purpose?
Ahh, Mulder's senator pal.
Dude knows his classical music. Almost.
"What am I looking for?" "Contact."
CSM and Skinner. "She doesn't know where he is." "How can you be so sure?" "Because if she knew she wouldn't be so worried about him." Aww, Skinner, you shipper you.
*laughs at the size of Mulder's hard drive. No, really*
"So, whenever he's away, I feed his fish." Those poor, poor fish.
Crazy Puerto Rican in el bano!
That's one dead Jorge.
"Before, I could only trust myself. Now I can only trust you. And they've taken you away from me."
So Mulder sees a crazy light show, some long-legged freak sillohette, tries to shoot it but his gun won't work, and then passes out. And then Scully finds it. I bet he's pretty ripe.
Yes, there's proof galore, Mulder, but you can't take any of it with you. Poor Mulder.
Gillian is so pregnant there, isn't she?
Nice driving, ace.
CSM's first tv words to Mulder: "Your time is over. And you leave with nothing." And then Skinner tells off CSM. BWAHA! You go, Walter!
"I met not have the X-Files, Scully, but I still have my work. And I still have you. And I still have myself." Hand-squeeze!
2x02 The Host
Ooooh isn't this the one with Flukeman? FLUKY?
Poor Mulder, still on wiretap. It's like solitary confinement.
Skinner requested Mulder... must be a crap assignment. Literally.
"What would you like us to do with the body?" "Wrap it up and send it to the FBI. Care of Assistant Director Skinner."
"Is this seat taken?" "No, but I should warn you, I'm experiencing violent impulses." "Well, I'm armed, so I'll take my chances."
"They don't want us working together, Scully. And right now that's the only reason I can think of to stay."
You know, I didn't realize, watching this when I was younger, but as much as Mulder is the fervant believer and Scully's the logical skeptical, he totally would have given up on the X-Files if she hadn't pushed him.
EW WORM IN THE DEAD GUY'S GUTS GROSS.
Bwah, Gillian is so so pregnant.
Mulder has a friend, yay!
Attached itself to the bile duct and was feeding off the liver.
"So, what, the murder weapon was a top sirloin?"
She's so cute when she's laughing at him. "I'm sorry. It felt like old times there for a second."
"I didn't want to have to tell Skinner that his murder suspect was a giant bloodsucking worm."
EW WORM IN THE GUY'S MOUTH IN THE SHOWER NASTY.
Flukeman! He needs a theme song!
Gillian is ginormous. Kind of clever shooting around her tum-tum, though.
"I'd consider it more than a professional loss if you decided to leave." Aww...
"I know. This should have been an x-file. We all take our orders from someone, Agent Mulder."
The fluke is loose!
Like bait, heehee.
One more reason not to use a port-a-potty ever: you never know what's going to rear up and BITE YOU ON THE ASS.
Oh yeah, I remember this guy. The black version of Deep Throat. Did he have a catchy name? I remember he gets shot in the hallway in Mulder's apartment building.
Aw, poor treatment plant guy. I liked him. He didn't deserve to be gnoshed on by a gigantic flukeworm.
"Is this seat taken?" "No, but I should warn you I may reek a bit of the sewer." "I'll take my chances."
Ahh, it's the Russians' fault!
Eek, Fluky Jr.!
Hmm, I'm remembering nothing from the episode title alone.
Oh yes. Evil messages from the LCD lights.
"Imagine being one of those flies on the wall of the Oval Office." "Been there. Done that."
"So Mulder, where's your little partner?" "She wouldn't come. She's afraid of her love for you." "She's tasty." "You know, Frohike, it's men like you who give perversion a bad name."
"Hey Frohike, can I have those?" "If I can have Scully's phone number."
"He's probably one of those people who thinks Elvis is dead."
"Frustrated Jehovah's Witness?"
I'm watching this on the drive back from Pioneer. Really hoping that I don't get carsick.
I always remember this episode because of the Barenaked Ladies song "Who Needs Sleep".
NICK LEA! Woohoo!
Skinner is awesome like whoa. Even if he doesn't know it yet.
KRYCEK eeeeeeeee! "Krycek. Alex Krycek." He's so adorable, yet so evil. *giggles*
Meanwhile Scully's stuck teaching. And being so, so pregnant.
"You have a call from a George Hale?"
"I can have the ME wrap the body to go."
"I don't appreciate being ditched like someone's bad date." Oh Krycek you so funny.
They're all whispery and conspiratorial and Krycek is like, excuse me, people, get a room.
You know, Mulder and Krycek might have been a good team if he hadn't been evil.
Black Deep Throat! Oh wait, didn't they call him Mr. X? "All I know is Augustus Cole hasn't slept in 24 years."
"The truth is still out there. But it's never been more dangerous." Yes that truth is very dangerous isn't it.
"Sounds like your new partner's working out." "He's alright. He could use a little more seasoning and some wardrobe advice, but he's a lot more open to extreme possibilities than-" "Than I was?" "Than I assumed he would be." "Must be nice having someone not questioning your every move, poking holes in all your theories." "Oh yeah, it's great. I'm surprised I put up with you for so long." Aww.
KRYCEK IS EEEEVIL! "Scully's a problem. A much larger problem than you described." "Every problem has a solution." Eek!
