More accurately, Mulder and Scully's relationship wound up A pivotal moment in the episode leads to Scully baring most, if not all, to Mulder. Willis was Dana Scully's instructor at the FBI Academy.

He had forgotten how small she actually was until the moment she moved over to Scully went back to the stove and began fixing the next major item on her list. . "If you say so, but I think there is more to your relationship with Fox than either of.
I wanted to say my piece and get out of the way, because what they brought was going to be rich, and I wanted to make sure they felt comfortable enough to offer that. The pillow talk sequence is the centerpiece of the episode, and you allow it to unfold in a very relaxed, almost languid way.
How long did the scene take to shoot? We shot most of the hotel material in one or two days. What was paramount for me was to make sure that the scene played as honestly and earnestly as it possibly could.
In an episode that really does have a [fast] pace to it, that scene needed to breathe to be authentic. As intimate as it is, we never do see Mulder and Scully kiss.
Were there versions of the scene where things got more physical? The reveal was in the time cut when Mulder gets up to go to the bathroom, and you see bare shoulders. We did it to serve the story as opposed to being dictated to by Standards and Practices. Did the actors have leeway to play around that way? As much as Chris wanted to make sure that we got the scripted dialogue, he also trusts David and Gillian to try different things.

Jim steps out of the car but becomes suspicious as the man shines his light in Jim's face and is dressed far too casually to be a cop. Just as Jim demands to see some identification, the man strikes him in the face with the flashlight, causing Liz to scream in horror. Mulder shows Scully some paperwork pertaining to the recent abduction.
Despite being concerned about how her father's death is affecting her, Mulder lets Scully know about the recent abduction as well as evidence that there is likely only five days before the two kidnapped teens are killed. Mulder also tells Scully about Boggs, a killer on death row who has recently claimed to have psychically obtained information regarding the abduction.
Scully realizes Mulder is unusually skeptical about Boggs' claims, believing they are an attempt to escape his imminent fate, and Mulder explains that Boggs alleges to have become psychic as a result of a temporary visit to the gas chamber, partly due to Mulder's profile.

Additionally, he details Boggs' inherently violent past, subsequently notifying Scully that Boggs has requested to speak with him personally. Scully is eager to go with Mulder but her father's funeral is soon and she takes Mulder's advice to take some time off, Mulder cupping the side of her face in one hand as he apologizes for her loss before leaving the office. She looks up X-file Xconcerning "visionary encounters [with] the dead", but quickly returns it to its filing cabinet.
Members of the Scully family attend a funeral. At the funeral, a man standing on a little boat casts her father's ashes into the sea while the song " Beyond the Sea " plays and a small group watches, the observers including Dana and her mother, the latter of whom is very tearful. Both women refer to the Navy background of Dana's father — her mother implying that only family are currently present — and, although Dana acknowledges that her parents were both disappointed that she chose a different career path than medicine, she is curious to know if her father was at all proud of her.
Her saddened mother simply reminds Dana that "he was your father. While witnessed by Mulder and Scully in a holding cell of Raleigh's Central Prison, Boggs — who bears the word "kill" on the knuckles of one hand and "kiss" on his other — starts to behave as if he is assuming the identities of other people.
Mulder decides to test him and hands the prisoner a blue scrap of clothing. Holding this material, Boggs appears to experience a painful vision of James Summers and his torture by the kidnapper. Mulder takes the fabric back and reveals the surprising news that the scrap is from Mulder's own New York Knicks t-shirt, being entirely unrelated to the kidnapping. He leaves the room but, as Scully is about to follow him out, Boggs apparently assumes the identity of her father, first softly singing "Beyond the Sea" to himself, then physically appearing to her as her father albeit wearing Boggs' prison clothes and next asking her — in the voice of her father once his appearance has returned to that of Boggs — if she received his message.
i felt like it was just starting to find itself towards the end of the season?
Clearly disturbed by this, Scully hurries out of the cell, where she meets up with Mulder. He is ignorant of the factor that has caused Scully to become emotionally distressed and is led by her to assume that she is merely being affected by her father's passing. Mulder recommends she drive to their motel while he intends to continue interrogating the prisoner, still suspecting that Boggs' claims of psychic ability are a scam but hopeful that he knows where the teens are.
The sight of Boggs still quietly singing "Beyond the Sea" and being led through a nearby corridor spurs Scully on her way. She is later driving, in the darkness of night, when she comes across several landmarks that match descriptions which Boggs gave during his seemingly psychic vision of the teens' location.
These clues lead her to a condemned warehouse where, on the ground, she finds a small charm as well as telltale signs that the kidnapper has been in the building. Act Two Edit Alone in the agents' motel, Scully sees a flash of her father's face, recalling her earlier vision of him. Mulder arrives with news that Liz's family has confirmed the charm belonged to her and that police are searching the warehouse but have not yet uncovered any further evidence.
He notifies Scully he has been interrogating Boggs for the past five hours and jokes that — after three of those hours — the prisoner complied with his request to summon up the spirit of Jimi Hendrix. The atmosphere of the agents' conversation becomes much more downbeat when Scully admits to having lied to the police about how she found the warehouse, now revealing the truth to Mulder.
He is angered that Scully has apparently believed the prisoner and advises her to back away from her work if the death of her father is compromising her.

Mulder is adamant Boggs knows where the teens are and advises Scully that their only advantage in the convicted killer's stratagem is time, showing her a newspaper article which demonstrates their time is running out. Mulder shows Scully another newspaper, this one reporting the teens have been found. Even though Scully is amazed at this news, Mulder explains the article is bogus and an attempt to fool Boggs.
These two always work better together, anyway. Scully has just learned she has an inoperable brain tumor and elects to start chemotherapy treatment, while Mulder focuses all his efforts on trying to discern the cause of Scully's illness. Eventually he begins to see the link between her symptoms and her abduction in Season 2.
The whole scenario culminates in Scully cradling an injured Mulder while the two are huddled together for warmth in the middle of the woods -- all while singing Three Dog Night's "Joy to the World" slightly off-key. Just watch all of the long takes in and out of elevators as Scully runs around the FBI to figure out just what happened when Mulder goes missing in the Bermuda Triangle on a ghost ship.
Mulder meets an alt-universe Scully which is fun to seeand after some blatant flirting the two characters end up kissing, proving that they're destined to fall in love no matter the iteration of their characters. While in recovery from the traumatic experience running from Nazis, Mulder then declares his love for Scully for the very first time from his hospital bed.
In true Scully fashion, she only replies, "Oh, brother. A kiss and declaration of love in the very same episode. It's because Mulder and Scully go undercover in a gated community as a married couple, including all the domestic underpinnings and cutesy pet names that go along with. In all honesty, "Arcadia" is worth it for getting to see Mulder and Scully call each other things like "honeybunch" and "poopyhead.
