*   *   *   *   *   *   *   *

"Honey, I'm home!"

"Cute, Mulder. Cute."

"Where are you?"

"In the kitchen."

"Brought you something."

"Flowers? For me?"

"Just for you."

"You shouldn't have."

"I wanted to."

"They're beautiful, Mulder."

"Just like you."

"Such a flatterer."

"Something smells good."

"That's our dinner."

"I meant you."

"You're funny, Mulder."

"Humor me, Scully."

"Don't I always?"

"Love your apron."

"I'm not surprised."

"'Kiss the cook'?"

"So it says."

"That an order?"

"If need be."

"Pucker up, Sunshine."

"You too, Spooky."

"So what's cooking?"

"Stuffed Bermuda onions."

"You're kidding, right?"

"You'll like them."

"You think so?"

"Trust me, Mulder."

"Trust no one."

"Except your partner."

"My new motto."

"Something to drink?"

"A beer, maybe?"

"In the fridge."

"Shiner Bock. Sweet."

"My new brand."

"You want one?"

"Sure. A toast?"

"To us, Scully."

"To us, Mulder."

"To first dates."

"To *second* dates."

"And many more."

"Bring the movie?"

"I got *two*."

"Ah. Double feature."

"Check this out."

"'Steel Magnolias.' And?"

"'Leather and Lace'."

"'Leather and Lace'?"

"It's a classic."

"I'll just bet."

"You'll like it."

"I'm all a-tingle."

"You will be."

"Instructional video, Mulder?"

"Don't you wish."

"Where is it?"

"Check the bag."

"Mulder, you cheat."

"Huh? What's wrong?"

"'Sleepless in Seattle.'"

"How'd that happen?"

"*Two* chick flicks?"

"Torture beyond words."

"All for me."

"Congratulations, I think."

"You're a romantic."

"I'll deny it."

"And there's popcorn!"

"But of course."

"And it's unbuttered."

"Must be love."

"Thank you, Mulder."

"It's still unAmerican."

"Thank you anyway."

"You're very welcome."

"Kiss me, Mulder."

"Are you sure?"

"Obey the apron."

"With pleasure, Scully."

"Oooh, that's nice."

"Scully, something's burning."

"Not the onions."

"I meant me."

"Down, big boy."

"Easier said than ..."

"All right. Enough."

"Okay. Party pooper."

"Dinner's almost ready."

"Can I help?"

"Set the table."

"Nice dishes, Scully."

"My new china."

"Where's it from?"

"My mother's attic."

"A family heirloom?"

"Yes. My grandmother's."

"Pretty fancy, Scully."

"For special occasions."

"Then why tonight?"

"This is one."

"A special occasion?"

"I think so."

"So do I."

"You're blushing, Mulder."

"I don't blush."

"Yes, you do."

"I do? Really?"

"All the time."

"Wow. Nice pattern."

"What'd you say?"

"The china pattern ..."

"What about it?"

"I like it."

"So do I."

"What a coincidence."

"Ready to eat?"

"A loaded question."

"Mulder, you're incorrigible."

"My middle name."

"Go wash up."

"And then what?"

"We'll eat dinner."

"And after dinner?"

"Wash the dishes."

"Is that negotiable?"

"Not really, no."

"Okay, *then* what?"

"Then, the movies."

"And after that?"

"Well, I guess ..."

"The date's over?"

"I hope not."

"You mean it?"

"I said it."

"We're talking sleepover?"

"Sleep is overrated."

"Forgot my pajamas."

"Won't need them."

"And my toothbrush."

"Got a spare."

"You're always prepared."

"*My* new motto."

"Kiss me, Scully."

"Dinner's getting cold."

"We'll reheat it."

"You're so smart."

"Smart and lucky."

"You will be."

"I was hoping."

"Say it, Mulder."

"Say what, Scully?"

"Three little words."

"I'm fairly happy?"

"Very funny, Mulder."

"Pass the onions?"

"Last chance, Mulder."

"I love you."

"Love you too."

"Must be fate."
