O woe is Mulder, and so plays the angsty piano music of imagining Scully's abduction!
Skinner, Mulder, Krycek and CSM all in the same room. WOOO.
Hm, so Mulder thinks they found her using the metal fragment.
"You're too close to this case."
You know, if Scully hadn't distracted that cop...
*laughs at the 1990s people with their tape casettes and phone books!*
He's all, here's how it is tram guy, you help me or I SHOOT YOU!
"At this speed the cable can't hold." Then why is that speed even possible??
Oh Krycek. Evil, evil Krycek. You think you have Mulder stuck, but you don't realize what a CRAZY DETERMINED BASTARD HE IS.
"They took her!" "Who?" "THEM!"
"Did you kill her? ... Did you hurt her?" &^%%#$%@(* Yeah strangle the bastard! (I did mention I felt kind of sorry for Duane, right?)
Okay, the inflatable belly thing is just ick.
"Kill Mulder and you risk turning one man's religion into a crusade." You know, CSM, I always thought that was pretty thin as excuses for not killing someone go. If you didn't want to start a crusade, maybe you shouldn't HAVE KIDNAPPED HIS PARTNER.
"I think I have a right to know." "You have no rights, only orders to be carried out." Getting a little too big for your britches, eh there Alex?
"Why are you so paranoid, Mulder?" "Oh, I don't know. Maybe it's because I find it hard to trust anybody."
Senator Matheson, that's his name.
Hi Black Deep Throat!
"Do they have something on him?" "They have something on everyone."
Oooh cigarettes! Cigarettes = EVIL!
Mulder and Skinner teaming up against the bad guys YAY!
Mulder is frigging adorable when he's all scruffy and angsting like that. *drools*
"Who are these people who just murder with impunity and we can't do anything about it?" "Let it go, Agent Mulder." "Like hell!" "There's nothing you can do." "What can you do about it?" "There's only one thing I can do, Agent Mulder. As of right now I'm reopening the X-Files. That's what they fear the most."
*jumps around and loves all over the Skinman*
Aw, the cross. "She was such a skeptic. Why did she wear that?" "I gave it to her on her 15th birthday." Mom gives the cross back to Mulder. Sniff. "When you find her, you give it to her."
And he goes up on the hill and looks into the night sky... and all the Philes blubber hysterically...
Skipping 2x07 3. I know I said I was going to watch all the episodes but I can do without seeing slutty vampires again kthnxbi.
2x08 One Breath
Aw, little tomboy Scully! And the first mention we get of Melissa.
Dead snake. I don't know, I never found that whole story terribly moving.
SCULLY HEADSTONE WAAHHHH.
Mulder, watching porn on tape. How sad.
RING says the phone!
"Sir, you can't go in there!" Back off, wench!
I love how he assaults the medical staff. "If you're with them, if you're hiding anything, I swear, I will do anything, whatever it takes, I'll find out what they did to her!" $#*!@&
No one knows how she got there. Doh. Or what's wrong with her. Double doh.
And Mulder was the witness to her living will.
Nutty Melissa with the crystals!
Oh yes. The boat. Very metaphorical. "I need to do more than just wave my hands in the air."
Hee! The X on the window! Yeah Mulder, good use of your time there.
FROHIKE! In a suit, with flowers! You are so awesome.
"Good work, sneaking out these charts." "I tucked em in my pants." "There's plenty of room down there."
Branched DNA... waste product. Decimated immune system.
Back to the boat. NURSE OWENS! WHO ARE YOU???
Hey creepy suit guy stole Scully's blood... get him!
I wonder if there's specific FBI training you get on how to chase down someone if they're taking the elevator and you're stuck with the stairs.
"You got him killed. You got her killed. That's not going to happen to me!"
"I owe her more than just sitting around doing nothing."
Mr. X you're nowhere near as nice as Deep Throat.
"You want to see what it takes to find the truth, Agent Mulder? You want to know the things I know?"
"Fox. You and Dana had a friendship built on respect."
"Fox, this is a moment for the family, but you can join us if you want."
Eek there goes the metaphorical rope!
LOL @ Skinner's no smoking sign.
"Is this about the tooth that was found in the cafeteria Jello?"
LOL. "How does it feel? Constant denial of everything. Questions answered with questions."
Oh this whole scene is just awesome.
Scully's boobs are way too UP to be believable.
*sniffles at dad's speech*
LOL a cigarette machine in the hospital. Used to convey a secret message!
"Don't try to threaten me, Mulder. I've watched presidents die."
"Why her? Why her and not me? Answer me!" "I like you. I like her to, that's why she was returned to you." "You should be the one to die." "Why? Look at me. No wife. No family. Some power. I'm in the game because I believe what I'm doing is right." "Right? Who are you to decide what's right?" "Who are you? If people were to know of the things that I know, it would all fall apart. I told Skinner you shot the man in the hospital, but I didn't really believe it. And here you are with a gun to my head. I have more respect for you, Mulder. You're becoming a player. You can kill me now, but you'll never know the truth. And that's why I'll win. Don't worry. This will be our secret. We wouldn't want others to start rumors."
Letter of resignation. Sniff.
"When I started out this room is where they kept the copier." "At least back then it wasn't just wasted space."
Aw, Skinner's Vietnam story. Enlisted in the Marines on his 18th birthday. Crisis of faith, near death experience. SKINNER YOU RAWK.
"I can't tell you why she was taken. It's too close to me. I'm giving you the men who took her." Mr. X offering him revenge...
And Melissa comes to see him.
"Why's it so dark in here?" "Because the lights aren't on."
One last goodbye versus revenge. "Even if it doesn't bring her back, at least she'll know. And so will you."
And there he is. Sad face. Hand touch. "I feel, Scully, that you believe you're not ready to go. And you've always had the strength of your beliefs. I don't know if my being here will help bring you back, but I'm here." *bawls*
And his place is trashed. And he didn't get to shoot anyone. So he sinks down and cries. *bawls MORE*
The phone RINGS...
She's AWAKE YAY!
"I brought you a present. Superstars of the Superbowls." "I knew there was a reason to live."
"Mulder... I had the strength of your beliefs." And he has her necklace still... "I was holding this for you."
NURSE OWENS wasn't REAL! WEEEEEEE!
Totally one of the best episodes of all time. David Duchovny you are like a god.
