Today is National Boss Day. No, I am not making that up. It must be true--it's on my wall calendar.

In honor of the boss of the X-Files for the first five seasons plus one movie, FBI Assistant Director Walter Sergei Skinner, what are your favorite Skinner moments/episodes?

This is mine. I doubt they covered this contingency in the FBI's Upper Management Handbook.

I love Skinner. And I quite like the Scully/Skinner pairing in fic too.

I liked Skinner in Hollywood AD, it felt like he was deliberately trying to be "boss like" and M&S looked like two naughty school children in this scene.


He's such a good boss. He want's to help them but walks a dangerous line and suffers because of it. He get's shot, poisoned with nanotec, beaten up a number of times and has to deal with CGB and rat boy.

Scully/Skinner is a guilty fic pleasure :)
In 'real' life I doubt it would work.

I was going to add X from end game but didn't have a good enough picture to do it justice.

Your scene is one of my favorites as well!

I've always been one to love secondary characters as much or even more than the main characters. And I've always loved older men. So I've always adored Skinner. He's a man, not a hotheaded boy like Mulder.

My favorite is the scene near the end of "Paper Clip" when he lays the smack down on CSM thanks to the Navajo code talkers. Such a satisfying moment.
