  • War of the Coprophages - "Scully... what are you wearing?" - on the phone , after Scully's diatribe on the probability of alien intelligent life.
  • Piper Maru - "I just got very turned on" - after Scully rattles off the make of the downed plane.
  • Quagmire - "Scully, are you coming on to me?" - on the rock, after Scully compares him to Ahab.
  • Home - (suggestively) "Do we?" - in response to Scully's assertion that we all have an instinct to propagate.
  • Small Potatoes - "Birds do it, bees do it, even educated MD's do it" - after discovering that all of the babies had the same father.
  • Small Potatoes - "Hey Scully, should we be picking out china patterns or what?" - after Scully correctly guesses Mulder's theory.

  • Arcadia - "Come on, Laura, you know... we're married now" - undercover as a married couple, as he reclines on the bed
    Laura's note -- I refuse to include Mulder's "I love you" in "Triangle" on this list -- as I think it was heartfelt and not a come-on line; and I waver on the "iced tea" comment from "Tooms". For "Triangle" and other "romantic" moments, check out that list on the Hugs & Kisses list on the Lists & Statistics page.
