Mulder and Scully are in the theatre, watching a film based on one of their case and their characters. The audience chuckle, the actors look interested and pleased, Skinner looks happy. Scully watches the film in horror, but her shock and surprise is smaller than Mulder's, who just drops his head into his hands and hides his face completely.
When Skinner tells Mulder that his friend from college, now a writer/producer, will shadow Mulder and Scully on their case, Mulder just rubs his forehead and asks if he pissed off Skinner more than usual.
