Washington Memorial Hospital. Doggett, in civvies and black leather jacket, backs out of one of the rooms and turns to see Mulder and Scully. "Is this it?" he asks, pointing at Scully's belly. Mulder and Scully look at each other, and then Mulder bursts into laughter. They just came to visit Agent Harrison, Scully explains. Doggett exposits that Leyla is on the same anti-venom he was, and that she's going to be fine, physically, and not at all blind. Scully comments that she heard Leyla wasn't going to return to the X-Files. "That was her choice," Doggett gruffs. "It's just going to be me for a while." Everyone looks at his or her feet. Mulder glances up after a moment, and tells Doggett that he's going to return something to him -- something that Doggett deserves to keep. It's the Apollo 11 keychain. "If it's all the same to you," Doggett says, "there's someone else who should have it."
Cut to Leyla's hospital room. She's sitting up. And looking at the medallion. "No way," she says, smiling. "This means...I can't tell you what this means to me." Mulder and Scully smile like proud parents. Leyla looks up from the medallion, and comments, somewhat hesitantly, that she'd like to ask them a question; when they were up in Antarctica, and Mulder was rescuing Scully from the spaceship, and Mulder's snowmobile ran out of gas, how the heck did they get back? Since no one knew where they were? That, my friends, is a good question. Cue fairly amusing old married couple banter from Mulder and Scully in which Scully attempts to deny that there even was a spaceship. Leyla watches them argue, smiling. Doggett peers into the room through the window in the door. He makes a thoughtful face and turns and walks down the hall. He's all alone in the world. All alone. Alone. Alone, except for Skinner. Skinner and the love that dare not speak its name.
