One of the best scenes in the entire series/movies. His face. He is absolutely shocked and horrified that she would believe and say such a thing. You could hear his heart break.
She’s so beautiful…its impossible. wherehaveallthescullysgone
absolutely impossible…and yet she exists….
You know, I think I finally understand why I adore this relationship so much.
Let’s face it, this relationship is WEIRD when you compare it with other mainstream relationships on the big and small screen. They resist their attraction, they resist the idea that they need each other, they resist the growing love between them…Practically any other show would have them rolling in the sheets in the third season. I mean, SEVEN SEASONS, people. It took seven seasons for these two to share a very sweet and very chaste kiss.
I’ve heard it mentioned that Mulder and Scully have yet to exchange a simple “I love you” (at least, once that is to be believed, lol) between them—but I just recently realized that exchanges like the one above are 100000X better than any three-word sentence. “I need you”, “You saved me”, “I had the strength of your beliefs”, “I wouldn’t change a day”…ANY ONE OF THOSE SENTENCES AND MORE say so much more than a conventional confession of love.
I’ll get off my soap box now, but I just had to say it—this relationship is so beautiful because of the strength of its core, and I can never get over that.
