Sexual Innuendo Abounds as David & Gillian Dish on Mulder & Scully’s Relationship
Four years into the series, The X-Files became a massive hit. .. and while their working relationship was not as strong as Mulder and Scully's. Duchovny and Gillian Anderson dish on the status of Mulder and Scully's relationship on the eve of The X-Files' return to FOX in January. And while Agent Scully may have (very) good reason to "believe" these days, we still fondly recall the first few seasons, when she routinely rejected Mulder's out.
Question 8 What is the name of the agent who becomes Mulder's partner in the second season? Adam Sycheg Alex Krycek Anthony Bellock In the second season of X-Files, the powers that be decide that Mulder and Scully are too good together, creating a threat to the status quo, and so they split the duo up. While Scully heads off to Quantico, Mulder continues to look into the weird cases, gaining a new partner along the way. This new partner ends up being one of the great villains of the series.
As an agent for the Cigarette Smoking Man, this character is almost like the evil version of Mulder. What was his name?
Question 9 What is Assistant Director Skinner's first name? Robert Thomas Walter The X-Files isn't known for its action scenes, but it did have a few great fights and chases over the years. One person who quickly became known for his hard as nails attitude and willingness to get into fistfights with anyone who miffed him, even Mulder, was Assistant Director Skinner.
As their boss, Skinner found himself constantly caught in the middle of following the orders of his own superiors and making sure Mulder and Scully had the tools needed to find the truth.
What is Assistant Director Skinner's first name? Question 10 How did Mulder let Deep Throat know he needed to talk to him? Mulder would put an ad in the classifieds Mulder would put an "X" on his apartment window Mulder would leave a note at a Chinese restaurant Mulder would call from a specific payphone The best way to learn the truth is to know someone on the inside, and for Mulder that someone was the man with the rather unimaginative code name "Deep Throat".
Deep Throat would sometimes point Mulder in the direction of a case, but just as often he would tell Mulder to leave a mystery alone.
His knowledge of the truth, and just how much of that truth he was willing to share, constantly annoyed our favorite FBI agents. When Mulder needed to speak to Deep Throat, he would set up a signal. What was that signal? Question 11 What brand of cigarettes did the Cigarette Smoking Man smoke?

Kings Morley Lucky Lights Easily one of the greatest villains in all of television history, the Cigarette Smoking Man was originally going to play a much smaller part in the show, but his look was just too perfect. Over the years, Cigarette Smoking Man did his best to keep Mulder away from the truth, but from time to time, there was a sense that he was actually rooting for Mulder to win.
As the show went on, we learned about the Cigarette Smoking Man's past, including when he started smoking. What brand of cigarettes did the Cigarette Smoking Man smoke? Question 12 What is Mulder's sister's name? Samantha Wolf Susan The driving force behind everything Mulder does is his guilt over the disappearance of his sister. Mulder was watching her the night she was taken, and just before the tragic events of the evening happened, the two had argued over what to watch on TV.
His sister's abduction not only fed into Mulder's belief in aliens, but in his need to better understand people, making him one of the best profilers the FBI had ever seen. What is Mulder's sister's name? Question 13 What was Scully's sister's name?
Margaret Mary Melissa While Mulder only had one sibling, Scully grew up with two brothers and a sister. Their Irish Catholic childhoods were happy, but as the Scully kids grew up, they all became very different people. For example, while Scully is a skeptic and prefers science over faith, her sister was way into new age mysticism.Mulder and Scully relationship
Still, the two sisters got along well. Sadly, Scully lost her sister when two government assassins shot her thinking that it was Dana they were killing. What was Scully's sister's name? Question 14 Which of the Lone Gunmen had a crush on Scully? Richard "Ringo" Langly John Fitzgerald Byers Trick question - they all did Every now and then when Mulder needed some hard to find information he would call on the conspiracy-obsessed counterculture patriots called the Lone Gunmen.
These three men each had a specialty and background that, when brought together, created a single mind that knew more, and believed in weirder things, than Mulder did or ever could.
Are You Fox Mulder Or Dana Scully?
The Lone Gunmen were such fan favorites that they got their own short-lived spin-off series. One of these three men had a not so secret crush on Scully. Question 15 Who claimed to be able to speak to Scully's dead father? Howard Lee Starkmore Ronald Lewis Ranscom Luther Lee Boggs While working on a case, Mulder and Scully meet with a man on death row who claims that he is psychic and will be able to lead them to a serial killer. Neither Scully or Mulder believe the man until he begins to tell Scully things about her recently deceased father.
A kiss and declaration of love in the very same episode. It's because Mulder and Scully go undercover in a gated community as a married couple, including all the domestic underpinnings and cutesy pet names that go along with. In all honesty, "Arcadia" is worth it for getting to see Mulder and Scully call each other things like "honeybunch" and "poopyhead. From Scully blatantly flirting with Mulder while eating ice cream to an ending scene where Mulder teaches her to swing a bat, there's plenty to love.
Any episode where these two actually choose to put their arms around each other while having a moment of happiness is a must-watch. Add in some real Mulder-and-Scully flirting while taking a bubble bath not together, unfortunately and we see the casual, funny sides of the characters come out.
Scully actually laughs at one point.
Also, the endless jokes about Scully and Skinner are clearly deflections. You're not fooling anyone, kids. Although they spend most of the episode apart, it's because Mulder is trying to ensure the protection of Scully and their unborn son, William.
Also, we finally get definitive proof Mulder has a key to Scully's apartment. At least for a while. There would later be another movie and two more "event series" aka Seasons 10 and 11but "The Truth" is meant to wrap up the Mulder and Scully relationship, and in plenty of ways it does a great job.
There is a kiss and the two characters together in bed. Plus, the last shot is of the pair embracing.
It's about as good as confirmation as we might ever get that they're soulmates. Honorable Mentions aka shippy moments that grace otherwise non-shippy episodes:
