* Mulder and Scully having an impromptu slow-dance at the very end of the "The Post-Modern Prometheus". That the episode itself was something of a Moment of Awesome for the season or series which earned it seven Emmy nominations and a parade of rave reviews enhances the good feeling. Creator/DavidDuchovny would go on to say that whatever came after, for him, that one moment would always remain his favorite.

* Kumail Nanjiani getting cast in the revival. It could almost be seen as a thank you for all the work his ''X-Files Files'' podcast did to raise the profile of the show while it was off the air. Bonus points for his role being in "Mulder and Scully Meet the Were-Monster", the Darin Morgan-penned episode. Fans of the podcast will know the Darin Morgan episodes tend to be Kumail's favourites.
* The tribute to Kim Manners in the same episode. During the scene between Mulder and Guy in the cemetery, one of the tombstones bears the X-Files director's name. Mulder even puts some flowers on it.
* When ''Series/TheAdventuresOfBriscoCountyJr'' was cancelled, some of the crew ended up getting jobs on this show. Flash forward a few years to "Terms of Endearment" and its big guest star, Creator/BruceCampbell. In his book, ''If Chins Could Kill: Confessions of a B Movie Actor'', Campbell described the experience as like "coming home."

* "The Unnatural" is just one long crowning moment of heartwarming. We dare you, we double dare you not to feel any emotion other than pure heartwarmth at the fate of Josh Exley. The shippers will appreciate the adorable Mulder-Scully interaction in the office and the baseball lesson at the end.

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* Mulder and Scully's phone conversation in "Sleepless". They clearly miss working together, and at the end neither seems to want to [[NoYouHangUpFirst hang up first]].

Added DiffLines:

* In "Home Again", Scully and Mulder's conversation in the hospital:
-->'''Scully''': Back in the day, did we ever come across the ability to just wish someone back to life?\\
'''Mulder''': I invented it. When you were in the hospital, like this.\\
'''Scully''': You're a dark wizard, Mulder.\\
'''Mulder''': ''(shrugs his shoulders and laughs)'' What else is new?

* Mulder's speech to Scully in the hallway of his apartment building in "Fight the Future", reassuring her that he has always appreciated her and that he needs her.
---> '''Scully''': You don't need me, Mulder. You never have. I've just held you back. [{{beat}}] I gotta go.\\
'''Mulder''': You wanna tell yourself that so you can quit with a clear conscience, you can, but you're wrong!\\
'''Scully''': Why did they assign me to you in the first place, Mulder? To debunk your work, to rein you in, to shut you down...\\
'''Mulder''': But you saved me! As difficult and as frustrating as it's been sometimes, your goddamned strict rationalism and science have saved me a thousand times over! You've kept me honest... you've made me a whole person. [[ArmorPiercingResponse I owe you everything, Scully, and you owe me nothing.]]
