maybe someone else got to come punch up the script. maybe Duchovny!

Y'know, I tell you whut.

If we were to even get the long, long awaited "I love you," (pref coupled with some actual facial expressions, nobody unconscious, and -- be still my heart -- a bit of surrounding conversation on the topic -- you know, all the stuff we never got on the show) -- I might in fact survive the summer without egging Chris Carter's house or taking out a full-page ad in Variety that reads: CHRIS CARTER, YOU BROKE MY HEART FOR THE LAST TIME...

It's the willful omission of any significant relationship dialogue between Mulder and Scully which made the baby/consummation/test tube whatever, so deeply unsatisfying. Largely because, through out the show, there are dozens -- hundreds! -- of scenes where any real people would actually have conversations about their relationship, like human beings, and dozens of scenes where an "I love you" or an "you're the reason I do all this," would not be amiss. But the fact that they are conspicuously not, in nine years of the show, stops being about subtlety and a "love deeper than sex" or whatever, and starts just being insulting, like we're not seeing the show we signed up for.

What I want is crazy monkey sex.

I will settle for a sign that Mulder and Scully have been cohabitating.

Really, there are ways in which Chris Carter is like an abusive partner. Why are we taking him back? Just because he promises that this time he's changed?
Yes, I always thought that the "we are not going to let them talk about it" pretty much killed the whole dynamic in the last two years. I don't want that.

and a well lit scene. it's time Chris Carter got over his obssession with shooting important Mulder/Scully moments (like hi, kisses) IN TOTAL DARKNESS.
Dude, TOTALLY. Is it too much to ask for some light, some facial expressions (particularly on the part of Mr. Monotone), some context, and some conversation surrounding a kiss?

And, please, for no one to be crying and/or dying? Willful kiss! Kiss on purpose! Kiss because it's hot! Kiss because you love each other! Dear god, just kiss!
