Isms

We hear it in almost every episode; Mulder and Scully
talking, Scully is very serious about one of her out-of-the-blue
scientific explanations (when is she not?), Mulder responds
with some wise crack, followed by an 'oh-please' look from
Scully. Here's a little list of my favourite such Mulderisms:

        DEEP THROAT

    Scully: Mulder, did you see their eyes? If I were that stoned --
    Mulder: OOH! If you were that stoned *what*?

        SQUEEZE

    Scully: Mulder, you are jeopardising my
    stakeout.
    Mulder: Seeds?

        GHOST IN THE MACHINE

    Scully: So why did you two go your separate ways?
    Mulder: I'm a pain in the ass to work with.
    Scully: No, seriously.
    Mulder: You mean I'm NOT a pain in the ass to work with?

        CALUSARI

    Scully: Did you ever hear of Munchausen by proxy?
    Mulder: Yeah. My grandfather used to take that for his stomach.

        SYZYGY

    Description: Mulder's sniffing Scully.
    Scully: What are you doing?
    Mulder: Must be Detective White.

        QUAGMIRE

    Scully: How much you're like Ahab. You're so consumed by
    your personal vengeance against life whether it be its
    inherent cruelties or its mysteries that everything takes
    on a ... a warped significance to fit your megalomaniacal
    cosmology.
    Mulder: Scully, are you coming on to me?

        TUNGUSKA

    Description: Mulder's parking the car at the airport, leaving
    Kryceck in it.
    Mulder: I'm leaving the window rolled down. If I'm not back
    in a week I'll call Agent Scully to come leave you a
    bowl of water.

    * I know, it's not a remark Mulder made at Scully, but it makes me
    laugh none the less.

        NEVER AGAIN

    Mulder: Welcome back. You look a lot better than you did in
    the hospital, and congratulations for making a personal
    appearance in the X-Files for a second time, a world
    record.

    * Yet again, there's anything remotely funny about the above
    remark, on the contrary - it's one of the cruellest things Mulder
    has ever said to Scully, in my opinion. I just wanted to include
    it here as well. Sue me.

        MEMENTO MORI

    Mulder (handing Scully flowers): I stole these from some guy
    with a broken leg down the hall. He won't be able to
    catch me.
