I’ve just been having a lot of Scully feels lately…I know this exchange is generally regarded as a mixed bag but holy smokes—I love this line.

the x files + 1x02 - ‘squeeze’
I think what we feared were the possibilities. The truth we both know.
Which is what?
"You can’t get the truth. You can’t. There’s a larger truth, though: that you can’t harness the forces of the cosmos, but you may find somebody else. You may find another human being. That may be kind of corny and all of that, but that’s really it: Love is the only truth we can hope to know, as human beings. That’s what Mulder and Scully found after nine years. And that’s a lot."

YOU GUYS this is easily one of my top five throwaway lines, because yes, Mulder is making a really glib quip, but the entire punchline of this quip is “Dana Scully, you are so smart and amazing and competent that it is only right and natural that the event of you being put in charge of everything is A STATISTICAL INEVITABILITY”. like. okay, weirdo, your head is going to fall off from how much your eyes are hearts, but it’s fine.
