I think it's safe to call it, as far as this exchange. He can't say anything back that one ups her without it getting absolutely ridiculous (not that it's not already because omg ugh stop it u two). My question is-- is the ball now in his court for a random @gillianA, nice selfie, let's flirt ;) or can GA bounce back from the awkward flirt left hanging to randomly acknowledge him in the future? I need to know your expert opinion. For science reasons.

I really do not have enough Twitter-specific interactions for this data set to be able to make a prediction. I am just here for the ride.

About the "mocking." Not condoning fan behavior or obsession. Just wondering whether they are playing along for us - that they get a kick out of rousing up the public - or whether it's for themselves, their own friendly competition of banter.

Gotcha — basically, I think it’s part of both. They’re doing it in public, which means part of the enjoyment is that… it’s in public. But they’ve joked with each other (about these rumors) privately before, and we’ve all seen how they act at panels. People asked the same question after Wondercon and ComicCon and Paley and so on — it’s gotta be a mixture of both. You don’t have to choose.

Did you watch the Fallon interview yet? What's your take on it? David did not confirm or deny anything. Only said it's Twitter, it's public, and it's not a secret. But we still don't know if it's all a show meant to mock us, or if they're just enjoying being their friendly flirty selves for their own enjoyment. But I hope people will stop sending them weird tweets that take it too far and scare them off.

I don’t understand this whole “mocking them” thing. They are having fun, and a part of their fun (a distant or everpresent part, I can’t say) is that people throw a fit whenever they so much as bum a piece of gum off the other. (Especially once it’s fallen from Gillian’s mouth.) It’s funny, it’s ridiculous, yes, they are laughing at it. Do we flailers expect to be taken seriously as human beings based on our behavior in these instances? Is this the goal, to have them recognize our prurient interest in their relationship as something respectable or endearing??

Ok so awkward has ensued. Whats the bet David's publicist is telling him " Gillian's a natural when it comes to trolling but you have to pay me more if you want some witty replies." Either that or it was all fun and games until G went a little too far....

A

I don’t know whether we are the only ones waiting here with bated breath or whether drive-by-flirts are normal for them or whether this is awkward, basically. I wish I knew. But I don’t.

Considering she basically took it as far as it can go, he does have an out. (Think of your latest joke-pile on FB or whatever — once someone, um, bottoms out, anything further just sounds lame.) But to say something like “shameless hussy!” runs the risk of putting the blame on her, which is churlish, while to make it over the top explicit makes him look kinda skeezy. We already know he’s somewhat neurotic about saying the appropriate thing.

Ok he's now had all day to think up a witty response. Hell, I've even thought of a few. Starting to get awkward, guys.

A

Maybe David just needs us to reach out and share our suggestions.

do you realize that when you google "david duchovny" your blog is on the first page of results... i fear the worst. what if THEY KNOW.

A

Thankfully, this is a Google illusion. The results are skewed by your hits. I do sometimes wonder what shows up for certain sensitive parties…

did she delete the tweet where she basically invited him over? because i cant find it on his or her twitter now

A

okay, this will be the last time I answer this question! Where it says “Tweets’ below the “followed by…” section, click ALL. If you are on NO REPLIES it won’t show @replies.

The Tonight Show episode is up on their site. David Duchovny's segment starts at about 17:55, and he brings up Gillian at around 20:00. Side note, Jimmy Fallon appears to be one of us.

I mean, "anywhere you need me to be?" was completely leading... What else was she going to say? Honestly, I'm just happy they can communicate in a positive way. Who would have ever thought they'd get to this place?

A

REALLY THOUGH, he set her up for that.

Anderson has reached the next level. Everyone waits on Duchovny. The internet is hushed. The expectations are high.

What excactly did he say about her !? Maybe in Gernan !? :-) We couldnt finde here anything about it ! PLEAAAASSSEEE

Okay, I don’t have the grasp of idiom or connotation to really translate this, but ROUGHLY:

Twitter ist deutlich ein öffentlichen Forum, aber einige Fans reagiert, als ob wir etwas Geheimnis getan hätten. “Ich wußte es! Ich wußte, dass sie zusammen waren!”

There are some minor data points from David's appearance on the Tonight Show last night. Does that mean she was there !? I couldnt finde any photo proofs ....

A

omg people, really?? No, Gillian wasn’t THERE — he talked about her.

any time that they are sharing the same 100 cubic meters of space there will be nothing “minor” about my data

lebeeson asked:

he totally DID bring up the twitter exchange thing on fallon. he was all "obviously it's a public forum, right? but there were certain amount of fans who reacted as if we were carrying on this clandestine conversation. like 'I KNEW IT! I KNEW THEY WERE TOGETHER!'" he was def trying to cover his ass like NO PEEPS we are, in fact, trolling. i.e. don't take us too seriously.

A

I suppose we should be grateful that they still think the weirdest freakout is “omg they’re doing it!” and not “omg they are jokingly flirting despite their years of awkward standoffish silence!” Because in that case they would be halfway to this blog.

I'd advise you to call in sick at work today. We have ourselves a red code alert in the lab. I repeat - this is not a test. Everyone report to our science facility. We're going to give the 'stuck on sex' tag a workout today.

I am so proud that fully five different messages this morning advised my use of this tag. WIPE A TEAR.

There are some minor data points from David's appearance on the Tonight Show last night. (1) He brought up Gillian - UNPROMPTED. (2) His reaction to snogger conspiracy theories. It's difficult to tell whether he purposely intends for those tweets to perpetuate those theories in a mocking manner. Or whether he is genuinely bemused.

WAAAAT????
