Favorite Episodes:
Ice
Eve
Genderbender
Darkness Falls
The Erlenmeyer Flask

Favorite Quote:
[Scully knocks at the door to the X-Files office]
Mulder: Sorry, nobody down here but the FBI’s most unwanted.
(Pilot)

Favorite Bad Guy:
Teena Simmons & Cindy Reardon, twin eight-year-old girls who are not as innocent as they appear. (Eve)

Favorite Creature:
The parasite from Ice, which infects living creatures and amplifies the host’s feeling of anger and paranoia.

“Oh hey!” Guest Star*:
Felicity Huffman, star of Desperate Housewives (one of my new favorite shows) plays Dr. Nancy Da Silva in the episode “Ice.”

Favorite Recurring  Character:
“Deep Throat” (played by Jerry Hardin), a Syndicate member and mysterious informer to Mulder, who reveals information he choses to provide in a cryptic manner. He appeared in in 6 episodes of the first season.

Favorite Shipper Moment**:
I think the now-famous “conversation in the car” from the episode Tooms says it all. It goes a little something like this:

Mulder: No, you’d be in trouble just sitting in this car. And I’d hate to see you carry an official reprimand in your career file because of me.
Scully: Fox–
Mulder: I–I even made my parents call me Mulder. . .Mulder.
Scully: Mulder, I wouldn’t put myself on the line for anybody but you.
Mulder: If there’s an iced tea in that bag, could be love.
Scully: Must be fate Mulder–rootbeer. [Mulder fakes a wounded sound and throws his head back.] You’re delirious. Go home and get some sleep.

*An “Oh hey!” guest star is someone famous that pops up in an an episode and makes you say “Oh, hey!”

**What is a shipper moment, you ask? Derived from the word “relationship”, shipper is the general term for fans’ emotional and/or intellectual involvement with the ongoing development of romance in a work of fiction.  To put it simply, shippers are those devoted fans of the X-files who, more or less, want to see Mulder and Scully get it on. Shippers assert that the relationship does exist, will exist, or simply that they would like it to exist. So, a shipper moment would be some encounter between Mulder and Scully that is romantic or could be construed as being romantic.
