** [[spoiler: Margaret's last words being to her missing grandson William]], and Scully's reaction:
--->'''Scully''': (crying) Her last words to us were about [[spoiler:our child, her grandchild, that we ''gave away''.]] Why did she say that? Why did she have to say that?

** Scully's speech to her unconscious mother: "Hi Mom, it's me Dana. I'm here. [[Recap/TheXFilesS02E08OneBreath I've been where you are.]] I know that Ahab is there, and Melissa. But I'm *here*, Mom. Bill Junior's here. And William - William's here. Please Mom, don't go home yet. I need you."

----* Large portions of "Home Again", which deals with the [[spoiler: heart attack and death of Margaret Scully]].
** When Scully gets to the hospital, a nurse tells her that her mother was asking for "Charlie" (the youngest Scully child and who had apparently become estranged from Margaret). Not Bill (her favorite) and not Dana, not any of her grandchildren, but Charlie.
** Scully's speech to her unconscious mother: "Hi Mom, it's me Dana. I'm here. [[Recap/TheXFilesS02E08OneBreath I've been where you are.]] I know that Ahab is there, and Melissa. But I'm *here*, Mom. Bill Junior's here. And William - William's here. Please Mom, don't go home yet. I need you."

[[AC:2016 Miniseries]]
* In the first episode, "My Struggle", it's revealed that [[spoiler:Mulder and Scully have broken up and become estranged, and both are now more or less completely alone.]]
* In "Founder's Mutation", Mulder and Scully discuss [[spoiler:William]], with Scully admitting that [[spoiler:she hates herself for giving him up,]] while Mulder says that he's "put that behind [him]". Except it turns out Mulder ''hasn't'' put it behind him--[[spoiler:both he and Scully still keep photos of William with them and fantasize about raising him.]]
** Said [[spoiler:fantasies]] are themselves a mix of tearjerker and NightmareFuel. [[spoiler:They start out happy and benign, only to get darker as Scully's and Mulder's personal fears take over. Scully's fantasy ends with William undergoing an alien mutation like Emily did, while Mulder's ends with William being abducted in exactly the manner Samantha was.]]

* The ending to "The Unusual Suspects." After the Lone Gunmen solidify into a trio, and go after the attempt to poison unsuspecting asthma patients with a mind control drug, things go to hell in short order - the warehouse is shot up, the drugs vanish, the trio are arrested, and the last they see of Suzanne Modeski is her being shoved into a car and kidnapped in broad daylight after she tells them ''"no matter how paranoid you are, you are't paranoid enough."'' It's especially harsh on Byers, who saw every part of his worldview wrecked in the process.

* "Three of a Kind" opens and closes with them. In the first, is Byers's TragicDream. He's a WideEyedIdealist and possibly the most moral man in that universe's canon. His dream is of a world where the country he loves lives up to the Type 1 {{Eagleland}}, where he has a comfortable middle class existence with the woman he loves and two adorable little daughters...but then it cuts to him standing in a vast desert, holding a wedding ring, all alone. And at the end? Well, Suzanne is safe and going off into a new life, but [[DidNotGetTheGirl they'll likely never see one another again]]. And Byers is holding a wedding ring, out in the desert as she leaves.

* "Musings of a Cigarette-Smoking Man", unreliable narrator aside, does little to dissuade the audience from believing that the CSM really does have little happiness in his life.

* "Conduit" offers us a pretty melancholy ending, with Mulder sitting in an empty church at night, gazing at a picture of him and his sister as children. He then breaks down crying, thinking about how much he wants to find her. As this is happening, we hear a tape recorder playing one of his sessions with a hypnotic therapist. It's Mark Snow's score that really helps accentuate Mulder's loss. The sounds of the flute and synthesizer are gently building as we hear more of Mulder's recorded interview with a therapist. As it starts to fade off, Mulder drops the "I want to believe line" for the first time in the series.

* The opening spoiler in "Closure" where Mulder talks about how desperately he wants to believe in some kind of afterlife and truth beyond this world that's known only to God.
