Added DiffLines:

* "Redux". Scully puts her job on the line to cover for Mulder while he seeks out his answers to avoid getting pegged as a murderer.
* "Redux II". Just... Redux II.
** Mulder running through the hospital looking for her and then seeing Scully in her hospital bed after collapsing in the previous episode.
** Scully repeatedly volunteering to take the fall for the murder in the previous episode since she's dying while Mulder looks at her compassionately insisting he could never do that. And this happens ''twice'', both with cheek kisses, a hand kiss, and a face caress, of all things.
---> '''Scully:''' Then you have to lay it on me. You have to tell them that I was the one that killed that man.
---> '''Mulder:''' I can--I can't do that.
---> '''Scully:''' Yes, you can. Mulder, if I can save you, let me. Let me at least give some meaning to what's happened to me."

** During their game of [[{{RussianRoulette}} Russian Roulette]], Scully loses her cool and shouts at Modell after Mulder pulls the gun on himself and pulls the trigger.
** Once Modell forces Mulder to point the gun at Scully, he's clearly [[{{HeroicWillpower}} fighting harder]] to [[{{FightingFromTheInside}} resist Modell's influence.]] He's able to tell her, though just barely, to run. This gives Scully enough time to pull the fire alarm and break Modell's concentration. Mulder wastes no time repeatedly firing his still-loaded gun in rage at the man until the gun is out of bullets and he finally calms down.
** Last but not least, Mulder and Scully's quiet talk about Modell being a [[HeightAngst little man]] who just wanted to feel big for one time in his life. Scully subtly takes Mulder's hand for a moment to comfort him before leaving the room.
* Mrs. Scully defends Mulder from Scully, who has been given paranoia, induced by subliminal messages, in "Wetwired". The show-down between Mulder and Scully was amazing if painful to watch. Mulder's absolute trust in Scully, even tough he saw what other victims did and his strong wish to help her... It is so much like them. Mrs. Scully's support and trust feel great.

Added DiffLines:

* Practically the whole last third of episode "Pusher."
** Scully's concern for Mulder going in to face a telepathic madman on his own. She's practically lethargic and unresponsive to his efforts to put her at ease.
*** And arguably, the way he hands his gun over to her:
---->'''Mulder:''' "I wouldn't want to end up pointing it at anyone except Modell."
*** And they share a moment before she squeezes his hand.
** When Mulder gets his headset ripped off, Scully drops everything to go in herself to help him.

* In "Paper Hearts," Mulder follows a dream he had the previous night and begins digging at what he thinks is a grave site for his sister. Scully, as always, tries to reason with him to stop or at least wait for the proper authorities to dig for him. When it's apparent he's relentless in his endeavor to uncover the buried body, Scully instead begins helping him dig. For once, she can see how much it means to him and foregoes her logical instincts to help him instead.



** Additionally, Scully's face when he barges into the courtroom after she thinks he might be dead. She looks so subtly relieved and excited to see him. You know, in her very Scully-like way.



* Mulder surprises Scully with a celebration of her birthday at a bar in "Tempus Fugit". Scully is moved because he never remembered her birthday. Mulder tries to belittle it by claiming that this is how he likes to celebrate it -- every four years because then it's like dog years. It's all very sweet with a little strawberry cupcake or ice cream with a sparkler, the happy birthday song by the waiters and a little present which is a gold Apollo 11 key chain. It's also a bit of a tear-jerker because [[YourDaysAreNumbered it happened after Scully had been diagnosed with cancer]].

** If this troper may say so, there is no topping that touching, tender hug at the end. There are hugs, and then there is THAT hug...

* In "Gethsemane," after having been told his quest is a lie and losing his proof of alien existence, the cherry on top is that those conspirators behind the aforementioned devastations gave Scully her terminal cancer only so he'd believe the lies they fed to him. The way they order those revelations, one could assume Scully's ailment was the tipping point of his suicidal thoughts.
