The One Where We Recap The Movie
Morgue. Scully is mid-autopsy. The fireman's body is full of all kinds of weird glass-like stuff. It's funny, I can totally eat while watching this show (and its related spin-offs, in this case) now, while I never used to be able to. I used to be all, "Yuck! Guts! I can't eat this apple!" Now, I'm all, "Hmmm, putrefying innards. Hey, pass the chicken vindaloo, would you?" Anyway, just as Scully is wrestling a big old shard of fiberglass out of the fireman's gut, several people come walking down the hall near the lab. Scully looks up, stricken.
The Young Solider and two security guards enter the now-empty autopsy room, frantically looking around for Scully The Intruder. Scully has locked herself in another room just off the autopsy room, where the bodies are stored. Cold storage, I'll bet. She's waiting on pins and needles for security to get the hell out of there when her cell phone rings. Scully grabs it out of her waistband and, instead of turning it off like a normal person would, answers it right away. Naturally, it's Mulder. "Why are you whispering?" he asks. He's calling her from a pay phone, and I don't know why. What happened to his cell phone? Whatever. "Mulder, I can't really talk right now," she hisses, and then she chats with him for, like five minutes, like, shut it, Scully, because those guys out there are going to find you, Blabby McTalksalot. She tells him that she's found evidence, in the fireman's corpse, of a massive infection of mysterious origin. Mulder responds by telling her that they're going to Dallas in the morning. Scully argues that she can't: she's got a hearing with OPR the very next day. Mulder promises that he can get her back to Washington in plenty of time for the hearing, and maybe with evidence "to blow it away." Scully repeats that she just can't go. Mulder starts explaining why he needs to her to tag along, but Scully hears footsteps, close, and hangs up on him, leaving Mulder talking to himself on a pay phone like a fool.
