mulders relationship with scully’s mom absolutely kills me for so many reasons like they are so weirdly close?? he’s the one who goes with her to get scully’s gravestone in season 2 - him, the weird emo coworker, as opposed to any of scully’s Alive Sister and Brothers???? in season 4 he’s the one who calls her to break the news that her daughter has cancer????? he’s always the one calling mrs scully and letting her know how scully is? like i kno everyone jokes about how scully & mulder were married the whole gotdamn time, but Mulder actually does take on a lot of the family responsibilities that scully’s actual husband would take and just. It’s A Good Concept
