The X-Files Episode One: A Play by Play of Mulder and Scully in Love!

love_x

How many times did Mulder and Scully fall for each other in the very first episode back in ’92?

Recently I watched the pilot, season 1, episode 1,of the X-Files on Amazon, since it was free to watch, and after watching it more than once I observed how Fox Mulder and Dana Scully continually fall for each other throughout the episode.  I described, as well as calculated, every magical moment they had in the 1st episode for your Valentine’s Day, geek-out, pleasure!

Moment 1 @ 4:00

When Scully is told by Section Chief Scott Blevins she’ll be working with Agent Mulder she already knows all about him!  She says coyly, like a shy schoolgirl, “He had a nickname at the academy… um… Spooky Mulder.”

Moment 2 @ 5:50

Mulder compliments Scully impressed by her thesis work.  He’s read up on Scully as well.

M : “Einstein’s Twin Paradox, A New Interpretation, Dana Scully Senior Thesis– Now that’s a credential. Rewriting Einstein.”

Moment 3 @ 15:49

Mulder says, “I’m not crazy, Scully. I have the same doubts as you do.” Watch Mulder empathize with Scully as she stands there dressed in light blue lab techicians garb, latex gloves and glasses.  Boom-chikka-wah-wah!

Moment 4 @ 26:06

This is one of the best moments for sure… you get to see Gillian Anderson in her skivvies!  Scully, in a red robe, goes over to Mulder’s hotel room. Mulder’s holding a candle because the power’s gone out. She takes off her robe and has him look at marks on her back that turn out to be mosquito bites. She hugs Mulder because she thought an alien had implanted something in her lower back!

M: “Are you okay?”

S: “Yes.”

M: “You’re shaking.”

S: “I need to sit down.”

M: “Take your time.”

And then they have a sleep over party where Mulder reveals to Scully why he’s an X-filer. Mainly, because his sister was abducted by aliens!

S: “You’ve got to trust me. I’m here just like you to solve this.”

M: “Nothing else matters to me and this is the closest I’ve ever gotten to it!”

Why the heck didn’t they make out in this moment? How repressing!

Moment 5 @ 35:48

This scene takes place in the rain in a graveyard. How romantic! Mulder says, “You think I’m crazy…” Then Scully launches into a thorough synopsis of Mulder’s fantastic theory and then laughs at him. They both stand there laughing in the rain and it’s love! Then in typical Mulder swagger Fox says, “Come on, let’s get out of here.” Scully says, “Where are we going?” Mulder replies, “We’re going to pay a visit to Billy Myles.”

Moment 6 @ 38:26

In this scene Fox Mulder does what every caring partner does. He shows he cares about Scully’s career.

M: “Alright, but I just want you to understand what it is you’re saying.”

S: “You said it yourself.”

M: “Yeah, but you have to write it down in your report.”

S: “You’re right…”

Moment 7 @ 41:48

S: “There was a light!”

M: “It was incredible!”

And they look into each other’s eyes.

Moment 8 @ 45:55

Mulder calls Scully late at night while she’s lying awake in bed. “Scully, it’s me. I haven’t been able to sleep.” He needs to talk to her and she says they will tomorrow. Any other woman would have told him to lose this number, but Scully cares! She hangs up the phone and continues to lie there awake. Is she thinking about the X-files or Fox Spooky Mulder who’s just entered her life for-basically-ever thanks to this awesome TV show about repressed FBI agents!

Mulder One Liners

Below are some great one liners from Mulder in episode one. You know you want to read ’em!

“Sorry, nobody down here but the FBI’s most unwanted!”

“That’s why they put the I in FBI!”

“Steven Spielberg!” (When Scully asks who is it at her hotel room door.)

 

S: “Do you have a theory?”

M: “I have plenty of theories.”

 

 

I Wear a Man Purse. It’s for my Tablet.

I’ve tried to ignore it, but I can’t anymore . . . I’ve been wearing a man purse!

I own a bag with a bunch of smiley faces on it and on the front of the bag it says SmileTrain. Inside the SmileTrain bag is my tablet, a pair of headphones, and maybe some DVDs from the library I checked out, but not much else, really.

Then I started using the bag as a purse.

Everybody knows the joke from the movie The Hangover with Zach Galifianakis.

Oh, I’d say to myself. Did I just buy a chocolate bar I need to save for later?

And I would think how convenient it was to have my SmileTrain bag in that moment.

Then there was the time I spilled coffee on my T-shirt in public and went to the bathroom to take that shirt off and button up my button up . . . that was convenient too.

Tonight there’s snow outside and I sit in this coffeehouse listening to renditions of the most popular Lorde song sung by two young bearded guys with glasses and winter caps, a duo called Stone Heart, with a thumpy drum, an electric guitar, and a microphone and of course my feet are wet because I didn’t wear my galoshes and instead I’m in my Walmart brand sneakers so I take my socks off and it’s in this moment I realize when I place my folded up elastic socks inside my SmileTrain bag . . . I wear a man purse!

Should I get rid of it?

Why on earth would I do that? My positivity coach gave it to me! Do you understand? My positivity coach gave me a bag which says SmileTrain on it!

But what I really want to know is are teenagers going to make fun of me when they see me walking down the street?

These are the consequences I must face.

Have you ever asked a girl if she would carry something for you? Every male has done this to a woman because if it wasn’t your girlfriend it was with your mother, grandmother, sister or aunt.

By the way, in any zombie apocalypse the person who owns a purse carries the ammo and that’s a very important position.

A bag is very useful, you see.

But If anyone ever asks I’ll just say, It’s for my Tablet.

If you need a bag that fits your tablet check out my design.

Dumb People Don’t Write Books!

Over the years I’ve met many people who’ve never wrote a poem, a journal entry or a single word in their entire life.

I’ve even partnered up with people who had “ideas” completely different than mine.

Alien Nation

Most recently I had this ginormous realization that I’m an alien and not of this planet. It took me a long time to realize this, but I finally did. I really wanted to fit in here, really bad, but there’s just no way in heck that’s ever going to happen now.

Say What?

Fifteen years ago I graduated from Grad School.

Since then I’ve done one thousand and one things not even closely related to my field.

Only one friend ever asked me, over all these years, “How come you stopped writing for so long?”

Only one friend asked me that? What? Stop the press! (Plus, I’ve only known him a short while to top it all off!)

What Now?

Now I can spend time making friends with people who write books or blogs or poems on napkins and I might start actually enjoying my life again like I did in the past.

Some writer types can be a little grumpy because they’re not used to being around people, but most of them I meet are way nice and rather normal.

Lessons Learned

I have to say the most important thing I learned from all this riffraff is that people who write books aren’t dumb.

I guess that’s a nice way to put things, but it’s true.

Writers are just smart muther flokkas!

The Writers Life for Me!

I’m writing this.

And in the next hour I will write something else.

And tomorrow something else.

There’s always a chance this planet could distract me with something not as important as writing, but I plan to be around other writers as much as possible now, so I don’t think this will happen (Fingers crossed!).

What do you think about the writers life?

What excuses do you need to let go of to get on with your writing?
