It was New Year's Eve and Mulder wasn't in the mood to
party. Actually, it was only noon, and Scully had slipped
out for lunch. The offer to join her was made, yet he felt
there was something he needed to do.
Being a psychologist, he knew there was no sense in writing
out a list of things to promise one's self to do and then end
up pissed off at one's self for not meeting those lofty
standards. However, his feeling was that he needed to
straighten a few things out, and a new year was a symbol of
fresh starts, new beginnings.
With pen in hand, he put words to paper:
This next year being 1996, I, Fox William Mulder do hereby
resolve to accomplish the following tasks:
1) Clean my apartment from top to bottom, east to west,
north to south and all points in between.
2) Stock my refrigerator with more than just orange juice
3) Cease and desist from leaving sunflower seed shells
in company rental cars.
4) Refrain from ditching Scully the next time the need to
follow a lead in haste threatens to overtake me, because I
want to live to see Samantha again and other things to
5) Continue to call Scully at night even just to ask if
she knows if cats have bellybuttons.
6) Wear a wrist band to snap everytime I am tempted to
call Skinner "Chrome-Dome" while out at the bar.
7) Kiss Scully passionately on the lips and wish her a
Happy New Year tonight. This year.
8) Duck in case she's tempted to give me a knuckle
sandwich, and my radar indicates no such thing would happen
if I did do, but I will duck.
9) Use all my training and leads to find Samantha and make
up for all the lost years, my Mom's anguish, and the bitter
trade-offs that have our family torn and tattered.
10) Duck tonight.
Signed, this 31st day of December, 1995
Fox William Mulder.
