The X-Files - 7.19 Hollywood A.D.
Mulder: What about all the dead people who are forever silent and can’t tell their stories any more? They’re all going to have to rely on Hollywood to show the future how we lived and it’ll all become… oversimplified and trivialised and Cigarette-Smoking Pontificised and become as plastic and meaningless as this stupid plastic Lazarus Bowl.
Scully: I think the dead are beyond caring what people think about them. Hopefully we can adopt the same attitude. You do know that there aren’t real dead people out there, right? That this is a movie set?
Mulder: The dead are everywhere, Scully.
Do not even care that I firmly believe this is Gillian and not Scully, I LOVE this scene and her laugh!
ANDERSON: You should ask David about his teacup picture…
DUCHOVNY: That’s so weird – someone just sent me that shot on my phone a couple of hours ago, saying ‘Is that you?’ And I hadn’t seen it in I don’t know how long. It was taken right when we started doing The X-Files, when I went down to LA to do a bunch of shots at my manager’s house. In between set-ups I was just fucking around, naked, and I put this teacup over my genitals. And they took a couple of pictures, just for us, for a laugh. I was innocent, thinking, ‘It’s my balls. Who’s going to possibly want a picture of my balls?’ And a couple of years later my then-publicist, who will remain nameless, sold them. Here, look…
(He pulls out his iPhone and, after a rapid bit of button-toggling, displays the photo. Empire gives it a brief, polite glance. Anderson erupts into giggles.)
ANDERSON: Oh God! I remember during the series you were really embarrassed you’d ever done that. You look so young in it!
DUCHOVNY: (Putting phone away) And that’s all you get…

One of my faves…
I will forever love this picture of her.
Honestly. Want to be you. Want to do you. Your face is precious and epic. That is all.
