Do You Believe Mulder and Scully Are Boning For Reals? I WANT TO BELIEVE!

By Joanna Robinson | Pajiba Love | August 9, 2012 | Comments ()


I usually try to steer clear of unfounded celebrity gossip, but the prospect of a Duchovny/Anderson pairing is enough to fill the gaping hole that the Robsten split left in our lives. Dust off your Mulder/Scully fanfic, folks, because the truth is out there. (CDL)

Speaking of 90s fanfic, have you seen any of these 90210 Old Navy ads? DO THEY MAKE YOU WEEP? (CB)

Well weep not, little children. Peruse these Eye Popping Olympic Bodies instead. (The Week)

The lovely Scully sent me this article on how much an Olympic gold medal is worth. What's your best guess? (Today I Found Out)

And in what is far and away the coolest Olympic link yet, here's a screen grab from Children of Men. I've seen that movie dozens of times and never noticed Owen's t-shirt. (The Film Stage)

These behind the scenes photos are always fun. The "Mad Men" cigarette shot is great but, oh, gay Vampire Willow. I think I love you most of all. (FlavorWire)

Wanna see Ron Perlman (aka Hellboy) in drag? SURE YOU DO. (FilmDrunk)

Care to guess how much money the Romney campaign has raised? Sh*t, that's a lot of gold medals. (VF)

Listen, I know most of you don't spend as much time on the Internet as I do. But holy hell did I love this clever little page which uses Groundhog Day to sum up the internet's most popular sites. (Uproxx)

One of our Internet buds, Slashfilm, was hacked yesterday. So I'd avoid the site for the time being while they're sorting that out. Also, check out this interesting piece that came out of a Wired writer being hacked. The take home lesson? BACK YOUR STUFF UP. (The Awl)

Finally, I don't know if you watched Matthew Perry's new show last night, but it got TERRIBLE reviews. I've got more bad news for Chandler, "Contrary to popular belief, you should never urinate on a jellyfish sting." (Today I Found Out)

Elizabeth Banks, I've never liked you as much as I do right now.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • Nadine

    I want to believe. So bad. Even as like, a toddler seeing the first episode I was like 'if those two don't bang in real life I will eat my lego'

  • Guest

    That's the best headline that ever tapped off the ends of your prolific fingers,JR.

  • Bert_McGurt

    Ok, so Frankie Go Boom looks like it might just be pretty goddamn great.

  • TheGreatUnstainer

    The 'If it exists, there's a fansite for it on the internerds' rule appears to have failed for body double Willow. Perhaps blasphemy, but I think she's cuter than the original. And just in case anybody's worried that I'm objectifying a person whose role is to be an unifentifiable clone of a wealthier person, in my hypothetical slash fiction she really likes opera.

  • John W

    I think Dave is just trying to talk Gillian into appearing nude on Californication next season. That's my guess.

  • DarthCorleone

    Here's what bothered me about the Matthew Perry premiere. NBC has exclusive primetime coverage to the Olympics. They have FAR MORE THAN ENOUGH competition programming to fill their schedule for all four of their networks each day, and thus far they had been using 8 p.m. to midnight block on NBC to broadcast the Olympics. And what did they opt to do at 11 p.m. last night when the audience was accustomed to that schedule? BAIT AND SWITCH. "Here's our new show! We're trying to hook you." You stink, NBC. I'm not watching that show or your Revolution spectacle. This event happens once every four years, and you could have made 11 p.m. the taekwando hour last night.

  • Bert_McGurt

    Oh, and seeing that behind-the-scenes picture from Glee after the Muppets and Sesame Street makes it looks like most of them are operating hyper-realistic, super-creepy ventriloquist doll dopplegangers.
    And Frank Oz kind of looks like Tobias Bluth.

  • Bert_McGurt

    I hope Mitch Pileggi was the one that finally got them together. Skinner was really the captain of that particular ship after all.

  • $27019454

    My mom used to call The X Files "the girly man show" and were were never sure to whom she referred. Turns out she meant it interchangeably because, in her opinion, Mulder was tres effeminate and Scully was tres butch.


  • Tammy

    I've basically accepted that I'm just going to burn through all of my
    X-Files DVDs tonight. THANKS, PAJIBA. [No, really, thank you. X-Files in
    my house is basically just foreplay. It's NerdSexyTime tonight...]

  • TheOriginalMRod

    Speaking of "Eye Popping Olympic Bodies"...

    Okay, I am sure everyone already saw this one... but I just found out about it:
    (it is just the US rowing team)
    Poor guy probably had to pee really bad... being around all that water and whatnot. Maybe this guy will take some of the heat off Fassbender-schlong.

  • F'mal DeHyde

    Colbert made mention of it and as expected, it was highlarious.

  • Crystal O.

    I'm pretty sure this is the first ship I ever shipped intensely. My 15-year-old self will die if this is true, but not before daydreaming about them getting married and have a bajillion babies together.

    My 30-year-old self will just imagine them having hot sex.

  • anon

    God I love that shot of the four Willows.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Can we make Seitz's phrase "Manic Life-Affirming Douchebag" a trope on Pajiba? Pretty please?

  • Aeryn

    I saw this and for a moment, I got hopeful.......... Then I saw DD's rep say it wasn't true and I cried. Just ruined my day.

  • MrsAtaxxia


  • Tammy

    I choose to believe. Like the mythical unicorn, a world where ScullDer is a thing is better than one where it is not. ["ScullDer"? "MuldLly"? I am struggling to craft a better portmanteau for this - suggestions welcome. All I am coming up with is "EmbodimentOfAllMyTeenageAngstyDesires", which isn't so much a portmanteau as it is just fact.]

  • Maguita NYC

    I love Sculder (one L), it sort of smolders. But if we want to base this firmly in reality, how about taking their real names and merging them into Anovny...

    For those who understand French, when reading Anovny quickly, it appropriately sounds like Un Ovni = A UFO!

    I still want to believe...

  • Anna von Beav

    I wish I could upvote this ONE THOUSAND TIMES.

  • monkeysparkets

    Yes, yes, yes! Also, all you whippersnappers talking about watching the X Files as teenagers are making me cry like the weepy old lady that I am.

  • Tammy

    DuchovDerson, perhaps?

  • InternetMagpie

    Dude, publicists and managers lie ALL THE TIME. Keep the dream alive!

  • Kiddo

    My teenage self wants Anderson and Duchovny to be together SO HARD.

  • Kate at June

    As happy as this would make me, I really doubt it. Those rumors have been going on for the past 2-3 years.


  • Tammy

    Sorry, Place Where I Work, the chances of me getting anything productive off my desk today have dropped to zero, because I will be imagining Mulder and Scully re-enacting every page of the kama sutra for the rest of the day. GOOD NIGHT, EVERYBODY! Bunk, Me, Now.

  • Sofia

    Kelso & Jackie are boning in real life. Now Mulder & Scully and I can only hope for one thing:


  • bimboden

    Thanks for this. I've now found out all of Dawson's Creek is available on Amazon Instant free for Prime members. I guess I wasn't planning on actually working today anyway...

  • Awww but then he'd have to break up with Diane Kruger and they're so cute and weird together!

  • Sofia

    But he bought her a wall! He taught her how to drive, he kissed her first, he gets extra napkins when they go to the movies so she doesn't have to wipe the popcorn grease on her jeans!

  • JoannaRobinson

    He. Remembers. Everything.

  • Sofia

    He compares her to Audrey Hepburn while keeping a straight face.
