The X-Files: a summary of 202 episodes
David Duchovny in The X-Files 6.04 - Dreamland pt 1
okay but the best thing is that this little hand-holding finger-caressing happens because the FBI is trying to split them up and they made Scully work with a different partner who didn’t trust her and Scully got shot and saw Death but didn’t die and in the meantime it’s been months since he tried to kiss her in the hallway after she tried to leave him for Salt Lake City because they lose all their evidence and Mulder wouldn’t say anything about his old partner he used to sleep with who showed up and has taken over their jobs forcing them to become bored background-checkers
"you make me a whole person" followed by six months of silence and then he comes in your hospital room and does this?
but no. the BEST thing is that this is followed up by another ten months to a year of non-kissing.
and now we know that this little greeting/caress/secret handshake, along with who knows how many other moments of affection and physical connection, weren’t scripted but simply born out of shared instinct, mutual feeling, and loooooooooove.

DAVID: I also like that scene a lot, you know, because I love- Gilllian is so good in it, and… You know, what was nice was, uh… What? You don’t-
GILLIAN: I look like I’m twelve!
DAVID: Yeah, you look young, but you’re adorable, and um.. (ahem) You know, Gillian was kind enough, and I’ve never said this, but I was aware that, you know, when I was directing that she really- I know she was tired. And there were times when we would be more prepared or less, let’s say, than other times. And she really was there, you know, and you can see it in that scene. She’s really just doing just wonderful work for me, you know? And I really felt like it was for… you know, for me, and it was just really… I-I was… I recognized it, and - I don’t think I’ve ever told you, but I-
GILLIAN: Thank you.
