INT. JANITOR'S LOUNGE - 3:03 P.M.
March 15, 2004
John and Monica are in the lounge sitting on
the couch in front of the television, taking a break. They are watching
"That's My Baby" on Animal Planet, however they are not discussing
the cute baby puppies, they are involved in their own personal discussion.
So what? You told her you
love her, there's nothing
wrong with that.
Maybe I said it to her too
soon. (beat) We're not even
- Sometimes relationships
just happen. Maybe you guys
are 'together', have you ever
thought of it like that?
You know how I am. I like
my settings. I like to make
things like relationships
officially happen. I need to ask
her to be with me.
Oh, like you did when
you got engaged with Barbara?
That was different.
Yeah, you knocked her up and
she comes from a good family
so you proposed to her to save
her reputation. You never even
had time to officially call her
your girlfriend. It went from
first date sex to engaged in a
matter of a few months.
I'm different now.
How do you know? When was
the last time you had a girlfriend?
Doggett twists up his face, knowing very
well that he hasn't been with anyone since he and Barbara divorced
back in 1993.
That's what I thought.
I wouldn't put it past you
to date a blond psychic.
Monica is referring to the time when Mulder,
Krycek, Scully, Skinner and Marita had died and she moved up to D.C.
to help Doggett. He doesn't remember the events of that time, but
she does since she actually died at one time during that time. She
remembers how he sort of hooked up with a blond psychic named Satori.
Doggett looks at Monica, not understand what
she is talking about.
So what made you tell Dana
that you love her if you two
Doggett scratches the back of his neck.
This talk about him, love and Dana all in one conversation makes him
a bit nervous, especially since he's talking about it with Monica.
She's likely to make fun of him if he is honest with her. He told
Scully he loves her because he does, she's a wonderful person, she
makes him happy, gives him a more positive outlook on life, keeps
him grounded as best she can, comforts him, understands him... loves
It felt right to say it at the
time that I did.
Monica rolls her eyes and chuckles a bit.
This is exactly what he feared she would do, amuse herself with his
What if you scared her
away from you?
How could I have done that?
Telling her you love her
before she is ready to
hear it, what if she ran away?
I doubt it, Monica. After
I told her, she spent the
night with me.
Uh oh! Super Sperm
here we come!
I did not make love to her!
That's what you're calling
it now, huh? What ever
happened to calling it 'sex'?
You're frustrating, you know that?
What do you mean?
Dana spent the night, nothing
sexual happened between us.
So what did happen?
Life... Luke... my marriage
to Barbara... serious stuff.
Did you tell her about what
my Grandmama told you
when you were nine?
No. Why would I do that?
Because finally you have
faced the truth of what a
psychic has told you. You're
meant to be with Dana
Katherine Scully for the rest
of your life.
Doggett squirms, he doesn't like to admit
it when a psychic is right. When he was nine years old, she told him
that he would make many mistakes in his life and have much heartache,
but that he would find the one person that would bring joy and happiness
into his life and that he would fall in love and spend his life with
Dana Katherine Scully. Back then, he told Grandmama that what she
said was 'bullshit' and now here he is almost thirty years later and
he has met Dana and knows that he will be with her for the rest of
his life. There's no doubt about it.
What is your mom going
to say about her being a
(scratches back of neck)
I don't know.
She hates red-heads.
She's a natural red-head.
She's insane. She hates
everything I do and that
includes women I like.
Does she still think that
Probably. That cow manure
infested air of Texas has
skewed her perspective of
That's not true.
Doggett gives her a look that states that
he thinks she hasn't visited his parents for a long time, too long
of time. Monica has forgotten how they are.
Would you do anything for her?
I'd give my life for her, Mon'.
Monica is quiet, this is the first time
he's said this about a woman and meant it. She smiles at him and puts
her arm around his shoulders.
I can see you two now... getting
married, having children, neighborhood
barbeques.... taking too many photos
at your childrens' graduations... (gets
teary-eyed) after twenty years, you'd
both be sappy enough to renew your
The tears that have welled up in Monica's
eyes fall down her face, she turns away from Doggett and bites her
lower lip, hoping he didn't see this happen.
I'm not crying.
That's really sweet of you.
What is? My crying?
That and how you view Dana
and I. It's nice to see your
softer side for a change.
If Dana were crying, would you cry too?
I suppose I would. (beat) Guess
it would depend on what she'd
be upset about.
I think you would.
Doggett doesn't like that she is talking
about him in a Mr. Soft Guy kind of way. He gets defensive.
I would not.
Yes, you would. If she's
hurt, you're hurt. She's
your soft spot.
Monica smiles at him, knowing she is right.
The door to the Janitor's Lounge opens, Spender
pokes his head in.
You two might want to
get out of here. The
Janitor is coming.
Spender leaves. Monica and Doggett stand
up and leave, heading back to their office.
INT. KERSH'S OFFICE - 3:14 P.M.
Kersh is seated behind his desk, Mulder stands
before him, his hands on his hips. He speaks seriously.
What do you mean you don't
want to combine The Brotherhood
with Super Buddies? I love your
buttons. (beat/begs) Please...
Kersh isn't amused so Mulder drops to his
knees, begging as he bats his eyes at him.
What if I threatened to make
one of your Brotherhood members
a member of Super Buddies?
Mulder stands up really fast and bolts
out of the office, knocking down Judy (Kersh's assistant) on his way
out. Judy steps into the office and gives Kersh a curious look.
I'd rather organize an athletic
competition between The Brotherhood
and Super Buddies. Agent Mulder
thinks making one of my guys a
Super Buddy member is threatening.
I think he forgot that Walter is already
a member of The Brotherhood and Super Buddies.
As long as I'm not dragged into
it, I don't care what you do. (beat) Sir-
Alvin, A.D. Follmer asked me to
let you know he won't be at the
next Brotherhood picnic next week.
He and Agent Reyes are taking a
trip down to Mexico.
They're finally going to tell her
family about their engagement?
I can't think of any other reason
why they'd be going.
I wonder if Brad will let me
stay at his South Carolina
beach house again...
Oh, a couple years back I took
the wife and kids down to Pawley's
Island for summer vacation. Brad
let us stay at his beach house so
we wouldn't need to pay for a hotel.
That must have been nice.
The expression on his face changes from
fond remembrance to slightly embarrassed. Judy doesn't want to know
why so she exits his office.
INT. DOGGETT/REYES OFFICE - 3:20 P.M.
Scully is sitting at Doggett's desk, she is
typing on his computer, it reads:
INSERT - COMPUTER MONITOR
"To whom it may concern. It's about time
I had a desk of my own. You may have noticed this particular division
of the Bureau lacks in serious cases. Perhaps that is because
its agents aren't taken seriously. The sooner this issue is resolved,
the better. - Special Agent Dana Scully"
Satisfied with her snarky letter, she hits "print"
and watches eagerly as it spits out of the ink jet printer. She picks
up a pen and signs her name, and puts it in an envelope and seals
Behind her, Krycek stands in the doorway, watching
You're looking awfully
sexy this afternoon.
Hey Alex! Need something?
Krycek lets out his 'sexy' laugh and takes
a step toward her.
Unfortunately, yes. (beat) Mulder
wants to know if Monica and John
have had any fights recently.
None that I've noticed.
Right on cue, Monica and John enter the
You don't know what
you're talking about!
You're just saying that
because you know I'm right!
She's not my soft spot!
John Doggetts don't have
soft spots! I have no weakness!
She is your weakness!
If she died, I would not mope
around for over a year. Or... or...
obsess over a dead woman!
Well, you wouldn't believe
me if I told you how I know
that you would. (beat/cheery)
Doggett stifens up, he hadn't noticed Scully
and Krycek were in the office.
Scully waves at them happily. Krycek is devastated.
You guys suck! Why do you
have to fight all the time? Mulder'll
want to lock you up again. (beat)
He thinks that next time he'll use
The Love Room because it's a room
he thinks is for making up with friends
after a fight and not for the real reason,
Krycek is confused.
Beeping. Dammit! Why
are they editing me?! The Love
Room is a room meant for beeping!
Krycek starts muttering some Russian obscenities.
Then he holds his hand up to us, it is blurred.
I hate editors!
He storms out of the office.
There's a quiet beat as Monica, John and Dana
process what they just heard and witnessed.
I've never heard him say the "F"
word so much in one sentence.
Monica notices the envelope in her hand.
You're not trying to resign again
are you? It's ok to date people
you work with.
Doggett whacks Monica on the arm really
(holding her arm)
Ow! (beat) You asshole!
Krycek quickly runs back into the office,
(to the editors)
That you don't beep?
You censorship beep-holes.
He leaves again, slamming the door.
John, you shouldn't hit friends.
If Mulder had seen that...
What's in the envelope?
Oh you know, just something
I've been pestering the Bureau
about since I was assigned to
this division in 1993.
You should request that
you and I be partners.
But Agent Doggett... the Bureau
frowns upon agents who are
partners that happen to be involved
outside the office.
She smiles at him and leaves the office
with a sexy strut. Monica looks at Doggett.
Are you happy? I was
quiet through all that.
I'm going to do it, Mon'.
Apologize to me?
No. (beat) I'm going to ask
her out tonight. I swear on
Grandmama's grave I will.
She doesn't have a grave.
You know what I mean.
He sits down behind his desk, a cute smile
on his face.
Someone should really warn
Dana about your selfishness.
Doggett didn't hear that, he goes about
rearranging the contents on the top of his desk.
A few minutes later, the phone rings. Monica
Monica... Mulder was just here.
(beat) He's trying to get me to
join Super Buddies again. We're
supposed to be at-
Mulder enters the office.
Guys, be at Bella Flora tonight
at 8 p.m. Brad has agreed to
join Super Buddies!
Actually, Mulder. I was going
to ask Dana out on a date
- The rest of your life can
wait. You're going to be the
Guest of Honor since you're
He skips out of the office, we hear him
yell "Hey Scu-uuuuuuu-llllllllll-eeeeeeee!", and then a loud THUD.
No more noise.
INT. SCULLY/MARITA/MONICA'S APT. - SCULLY'S
BEDROOM - 7 P.M.
Scully is standing in front of a mirror, touching
up her makeup. She's ready to go to Bella Flora's Italian Restaurant
for Brad's welcome to Super Buddies dinner. She is wearing a navy
blue dress, her cross necklace and the silver bracelet that John gave
her for Christmas.
There is a knock on her door.
Really, Mon', I think the events
of tonight totally call for something
a little see-through with sexy lingerie.
Brad will need that after-
She opens her bedroom door and it's not
Monica, it's John Doggett. He's dressed nicely in a going-out-for-dinner
suit, not his work suit.
Oh hi. (beat) Aren't we supposed
to meet at Bella Flora's?
May I come in?
Doggett feels the intense angry stare of
Monica burning him in the back from where she is sitting in the living
room. The two of them are still mad at each other since their silly
fight earlier that afternoon.
Sure. Something wrong?
Do you want to-
- If you're thinking of skipping
this Super Buddies meeting, let
me warn you now... Mulder will
make you the Vice President
and you'll have to help finance future
Super Buddies outings. How else
do you think Krycek became Vice President?
Doggett gulps, ok, he won't ask her to
have dinner with him elsewhere.
Scully twirls around so John can take a good
look at her and what she is wearing.
How do I look?
Beautiful as always.
Doggett steps forward and takes her into
his arms. She smiles at him, this is a pleasant unexpected surprise.
The bedroom door opens, Marita enters. Scully
and Doggett part. Marita's mouth is wide open, in shock. She wasn't
expecting to see them together in each others arms. Not when she is
in love with Doggett.
Monica told me to tell you
guys that we're leaving.
Marita leaves the room, Scully looks to
John. He offers her his arm, she slips hers around him. They enter
the living room together, arm-in-arm.
Monica glares at Doggett, she is angry at him
still because she has a bruise on her arm from when he hit her and
she has to wear long sleeves tonight, she wanted to dress sexy too
but bruises aren't sexy. Her evil eye follows him and Dana, how dare
he walk out of Dana's room with her on his arm, rubbing it in that
he's quite content and how she is miserable. Worse yet, he hasn't
even apologized for hitting her.
Marita looks on at John and Dana, she is jealous
and pouting about them being together.
If I cut off my finger, would
I still have to go?
You'd have to go to the hospital
and I don't want that and I especially
don't think Mulder would.
Location has nothing to do
with making someone a
Super Buddies member. Mulder
would do it at the hospital.
Brad comes out of the kitchen, he is bummed.
Dammit. First The Brotherhood.
Now this. What horrid thing could
possibly happen next?
John could get diarrhea at dinner
and forget to go to the restroom.
Like how he forgets to apologize.
Monica glares at Doggett. He leads himself
and Scully out of the apartment.
Brad goes to Monica.
Calm down, Mon'. It's just
John. Don't let him get you
so worked up.
I can't help it, I'm all mood-swingy.
Brad and Monica leave, followed closely
I wonder if Mulder will make
Brad do the new Super Buddies
INT. BELLA FLORA'S ITALIAN RESTAURANT - 8:20
Brad, Monica, Doggett, Scully, Marita, Skinner
and Spender are seated at a large table. There are several other empty
seats around them. Mulder must have made reservations for a lot of
people. However, Mulder and Krycek are nowhere to be seen.
Ok. It's been twenty minutes
I say we leave.
That wouldn't be a nice thing to do.
Jeffrey... you shock me.
I shock you? I didn't think
it was possible to shock
What do you mean by that?
You've worked in Vegas... I figured
you've seen everything, nevermind
you're worked with Mulder for over ten years.
SUDDENLY! Mulder and Krycek run into the
restaurant, they are carrying helium balloons (red and green - the
Super Buddies colors).
(out of breath)
Did they follow us in here?
(out of breath)
I sure hope not, man!
They take their seats and keep looking
back over their shoulders toward the restaurant entry. Worried that
they have been followed.
Ok. Finally we are here!
He stands up.
I regret to inform you that Patrick,
Nancy, Herb, Cindy, Karl, Santa Claus,
Barbara, Peter, Fyodor, and Amy weren't
able to make it to this very special
evening. So without any further ado, the
Super Buddies event will commence.
He takes a wine glass from in front of
Scully and taps his fork on it. He hits the glass too hard and the
wine glass breaks. His eyes bug open and he quickly takes his seat.
Then realizing the broken glass is near his seat, he stands up and
grabs Scully out of her seat and places her in his. He sits down in
her chair, next to Doggett.
Mulder. Don't you dare try
to frame Dana for what you've done.
Doggett sees a waiter approaching, he goes
Excuse me, sir... I accidentally
broke my wine glass...
Doggett leads the waiter over to their
table and points at the broken wine glass in front of Scully.
I'll get something to clean that up.
The waiter walks off, looking strangly
at the red and green balloons. Monica rolls her eyes at John, she
can't believe he's taking the heat for Mulder.
(not nice/to Doggett)
Doggett glares at her. Brad decides that
now would be a good time to change the subject to something more joyful.
Guys... Monica and I have
some good news to tell you.
Monica grabs his leg hard and digs her
fingernails into him. She doesn't want John to know that they are
engaged while she's angry with him... or hers and Brad's other little
Monica stands up and drags Brad with her
to the ladies room.
INT. LADIES ROOM - CONTINUOUS
Monica presses Brad's back up against the pink
I thought we agreed to
tell everyone tonight?
I'm mad at Johnny so
I think it can wait.
Don't "Monica" me, Bradley.
(beat) Look, you have to help
me prevent John from asking
Dana out... He's been rubbing
it in that he's quite happy and
I don't like it.
Do you need to go back to Quantico?
You're acting like a jealous
fifth grader. (beat) Are you
having doubts about us...
our future together...
She lightly hits him.
What? You gaze at
him all the time...
He winks at her.
That's why you two are always
fighting... you don't know any
other way to express your secret
little attraction to... John Doggett.
I'm not attracted to him!
That's right. Dana is and John
likes her. So we're not going to
prevent them from being together.
That's right! (beat) Wait! Don't go
trying to prevent me from working
my Reyes Revenge on him.
If you stopped him, wouldn't
it hurt Dana too?
That means 'yes'.
He takes her arm and they go back to the
table. Now everyone is wearing thier Super Buddies red and green t-shirts
over their nice, formal attire. They are embarrassed. Mulder is sitting
at the head of the table.
Oh Bradley Markus Westly Follmer...
I have a special item for you.
Mulder pulls out a Super Buddies t-shirt
from under the table. The name "Follmer" is on the back.
Put it on!
Brad takes the t-shirt and looks at it.
No. Not later. Now.
Mulder stands up and grabs the t-shirt
and pulls it down over Brad's head, making him wear it right now.
Mulder laughs. Brad's hair is a mess now and
he looks ridiculous, moreso than anyone else.
And now to make you an official
Super Buddies member, you must
stand up and repeat after me and
imitate my movement.
Mulder stands on one leg and raises his
arm to tickle his armpit. He looks like a flamingo/monkey hybrid.
Brad looks at him blankly and makes no motion
to do this. Skinner leans over to speak to him.
Makes The Brotherhood seem
so much better, doesn't it?
Scully leans to speak to Krycek.
What is the point of this?
To see how serious Brad is
about being a Super Buddy.
I am so glad I was there before
Mulder came up with this.
Spender leans in from across the table.
Is this why women don't want
to date me? They find out this
nimrod is my brother.
Scully laughs and looks at Mulder, he's
still positioned like a flamingo/monkey.
Ok, let's put some money
on this. I say Mulder stops
posing by 10 p.m.
Doggett looks at his wrist watch, it's
I say 10:30.
So are we all putting money in
the middle of the table and whoever
guesses the closest time to Mulder
breaking stance, gets it all?
I'm in! Eleven o'clock.
Mulder is stubborn.
I say 9:13.
Everyone throws in $10 each to the middle
of the table. They look at Doggett who hasn't yet said a time.
Is Johnny too scared to lose?
No. I have good luck at
winning money, it wouldn't
be fair to you guys.
Oh sure, that totally explains
Las Vegas 1988.
What's Las Vegas 1988?
Oh John took everyones money
and lost it all in casinos and
from stuffing money in strippers'
G-strings. (beat) He took our
money because we didn't have
enough money to get back home.
He thought betting all that we had
would help out. He was wrong.
Vegas is the Anti-Doggett.
Yeah... Vegas isn't the best
place to work either...
You were a stripper once, right?
Hey, let's not talk about that, ok?
AH! HA! See! She is your soft spot!
Will you shut up about that
already?! It's annoying.
You know I'm right! You
defend her left and right.
What are you two talking about?
Scully pushes hair behind her ear, uncomforable.
So... is there always this much
sexual tension between you guys?
I am not attracted to John!
Everyone goes quiet and they look at her.
No one said Monica is attracted to John Doggett. Brad has his face
in his hands, holding back laughter.
All right, Mon'... you gonna
get it on with John...
I am not going to get it on
with him. He wants to get
it on with Dana.
Doggett's face goes red with anger and
No, I don't!
Scully looks down, saddened.
I'm a respectful man, I'm not
interested in Dana for... that.
You're kidding? You really are a monk.
I'm not a monk.
You sure do act like one.
Guys, let's not fight. Though
Mulder is holding his pose, tears
are streaming down his face.
They all look at Mulder and yes, there
are tears pouring down his face. His lips are trembling, holding back
TIME CUT - 11:12 P.M.
Mulder has not moved from the flamingo/monkey
Everyone has eaten dinner and dessert. They
are quiet now, no more bickering. They are waiting to see who will
win all the money in the middle of the table. Right now all they want
is for Mulder to make Brad a member of Super Buddies despite the fact
that he's not mimicking Mulder's actions.
This is ridiculous. Mulder, cut it out.
Mulder puts his arms down and places his
foot back on the ground.
Whew! Good thing I practice
Yoga. (beat) Oh Brad, either
you pose like I did or I kiss
you on the lips.
Scully reaches out and takes the pile of
money from the middle of the table, she won the time bet. Krycek isn't
happy, he wanted to win.
Mulder steps toward Brad with his lips puckered
Brad's eyes go wide, Mulder is seriously going
to kiss him if he doesn't do this! When Mulder threatens to do something,
he does it, that's why he was up in his office singing a song about
"being a big fat, honkey-dory corn dog" that afternoon, to get him
to come to Bella Flora's tonight.
Quickly Brad stands up and lifts his arm over
his head and lifts one leg off the ground.
Oh goodie! Oh boy!
Brad! Congratulations you are
a proud Super Buddies member.
Mulder hugs him and kisses his cheek.
Your life will never be the same
again. (beat) Ok everyone, let's
all sing the official Super Buddies
theme song! (beat/sings)
Stand up and cheer!
Stand up and cheer for Super Buddies!
For today we raise
The red and green for the world!
Our Buddies are friendly
And we are bound to create world peace!
We've got the will!
We've got the way!
For this is Super Buddies winning day!
As Mulder sings the song, everyone else
groans in pain, wanting to go home to peace and quiet.
EXT. BELLA FLORA'S ITALIAN RESTAURANT - 11:37
Scully stands alone at the curb of the road.
She just said goodbye to Mulder and Brad. Mulder is taking Brad to
a 24 hour toy store in honor of his becoming a new Super Buddies member.
Monica will have to get a ride back to their apartment with her and
Krycek and Marita left together and Skinner
got out of there as soon as Brad was finally declared a Super Buddies
Behind Scully, Doggett exits the restaurant.
He pauses to watch her for a moment. It's chilly out and she rubs
her hands against her arms to try to keep warm. She didn't bring a
jacket earlier since it was warmer. She's so beautiful in the dimmed
light of the street. He looks up at the sky, rain clouds are overhead.
Doggett coughs to make his presence known. Scully
looks behind her and gives him a smile.
Doesn't tonight convince you it's
a good thing to have been one of
the very first Super Buddies members?
(beat) Mulder just took Brad to a toy
store to buy him a big teddy bear.
Doggett takes off his coat and places it
around Scully's shoulders. Super Buddies is not what he wants to talk
They are silent for a beat, both feeling
the chemistry between them, knowing that the opportunity is once again
presenting itself and that Doggett is going to take advantage of it
this time around.
Dana... I've been thinking
a lot about you and I lately...
I've known you for nearly
four years and after everything
I shared with you the other night I...
Behind them, inside the restaurant, Monica
is watching. Mad. She steps outside and starts to quickly walk toward
them, her intent is to prevent him from doing what he wants to do.
Scully reaches out and holds John's hand in
Dana, what I'm trying to say is
that I'd like to be with you... give
us a try... what do you say...?
Scully smiles at him, it's the biggest,
most sincere smile we've ever seen her give.
I never thought you'd ask-
SUDDENLY! Monica grabs Scully and pulls
her away from Doggett, not allowing her the moment to answer Doggett's
question. She leads Scully down the sidewalk away from him.
I called us a cab, and told
them to pick us up a block
away from here.
Behind them, Doggett is saddened and not
very happy with Monica. He watches them walk away and then gets into
his truck. He's given up on this for the night. Let Monica ride out
her Reyes Revenge. He knows that Dana was going to agree to being
in a relationship with him. He'll bring it up with her tomorrow at
He starts his truck.
Do you have any idea
what was going on?!
I'm sorry. I know he was
about to ask you out-
- He did.
I was going to tell him 'yes'
