First, let me wish a Happy Birthday to Fox William Mulder who turned 53 today.

In honor of his birthday, my Top Five Mulder Moments from Season Two.

5. The climatic scene from "Blood." After racing to the top of the clock tower where the crazed postal worker, Edward Funsch, has been firing rounds down into the crowd, Mulder disarms and takes him into custody without having to resort to violence himself. Mulder accomplishes this by reminding Funsch that if he shoots Mulder there will be a lot of blood.

4. That adorable moment in "Little Green Men" when Mulder admits to Scully that as bad as things are, he still has his work, he still has Scully, and he still has himself. He can't look her in the eye as he says it, but hey, it's a start.

3. That tragic scene in "End Game" where Mulder tells his father that he's lost Samantha again. He doesn't make excuses--he tells Bill Mulder the truth and takes responsibility for his decision to trade the woman he insisted was his sister for Scully.

2. The scene in the bus station in "F. Emasculata." Mulder locates the last infected escaped prisoner aboard a crowded bus. The escapee is delirious with fever, and has a giant pustule ready to burst on his cheek, but Mulder fearlessly boards the bus. Although the prisoner has taken a boy hostage and is using him as a human shield, Mulder talks the man into letting everyone leave the vehicle unharmed.

I also enjoyed watching him let Skinner have it at the end.
SKINNER: You never had a chance, Agent Mulder. For every step you take, they're three steps ahead.
MULDER: Well, what about you, where do you stand?

1. This is my number one favorite Mulder moment of season two: the scene in "Ascension" when Mulder is so desperate to get to Scully that he climbs out onto the top of the stalled tram car. Even Alex Krycek can't believe what he's seeing.

Some of my favourite Mulder moments

I have a weakness for the slides and the glasses, shoot me.


And yes, speedo Mulder needs to make an appearance.




Happy Mulder, we don't get to see Happy Mulder enough

I hadn't read that article before. So CC is the culprit!

I know it's Scully's bithday but I like the fact that he's so happy he gets to celebrate it with her.

His I have managed to remember your birthday, buy a present (find what I think may be an appropriately cool object in my desk that I picked up the time we went to NASA) find a box ( actually went out of my way to find /purchase a box) and ( just now talking to the owner) arranged a cake type object with candle no less.. And I think I'm going to get away with it, I'm a good friend face :)

I always liked this one, because it said so much about Mulder, DD, Darin Morgan and Kim Manners, all in one long shot :

And this one because it's so sweet:

And this one because David's really good at funny and this moment is both so not-Mulder and so very Mulder:

And this one because I am really shallow:

And this one because I am really really shallow:

Not too surprisingly, most of my fave Mulder moments are Mulder and Scully moments.

The first photo isn't showing up for me at all. What scene is it?

Huh. Wonder why? It's the one from the end of Humbug - "I've seen the future and it looks like that" (Pan to Mulder, posing)

Mulder's best when David's acting is passable. There, I said it! And it's true. It's so true.

Yes, we all know you're not a shipper. Really we do.

It's an unlikely choice, but S5's "Schizogeny" has some of my favorite Mulder moments. Yes, there's something about him climbing a tree in a suit and overcoat that's endearing, but I was also struck by the way he deals with the teenage boy - the direct, sincere and respectful way he talks to him says a lot about his character.

[livejournal.com profile] write_out introduced me to this episode, and I must have laughed a half hour straight over this scene. ;D

Favorite Mulder moments:

I have to start with my all time favorite moment, from FTF.

Mulder: I think they went left.
Scully: I don't know why, I think they went right.
Mulder: [Mulder impulsively guns it and takes off straight ahead] Five years together, Scully. How many times have I been wrong? Never!
Mulder: [He looks at her and amends:] Not driving, anyway.


Also this:


And Mulder at the hearing in Redux II:


Mr. Potato Head Mulder:


Smiling, hugging Mulder in Terma:


Goofy Mulder:


I also love take-charge Mulder, contemplative Mulder, t-shirt Mulder, and spewing random facts Mulder.
