"You're my proof! You were there," Mulder says. Scully makes a skeptical face, like he can just think about that some more and see if he can come up with something better. "Okay, now you're scaring me, Scully," Mulder tells her. He wants to hear exactly what she's planning to tell the Skinman. "Oh, you want our stories straight?" Scully asks. Mulder sputters that he didn't say that. He just wants to know exactly what she's planning to say. "I don't feel comfortable with that," Scully informs him prissily. "Prison, Scully," Mulder reminds her, crossing his arms over his chest. "Your cellmate's name is going to be Large Marge. She's going to read a lot of Gertrude Stein." In one of my favorite moments of this episode, Gillian Anderson covers her face with her hand in what is supposed to be disgust, but if you look closely enough you can see that she's actually trying not to laugh. I can't imagine how many times they had to do this scene if this was the best they could come up with. And since we never get to see Gillian Anderson break character, this moment is charming rather than annoying. Of course, please bear in mind that this is coming from a person who loved how Jerry Seinfeld could barely keep himself from cracking up on Seinfeld.
